    Hey all, I need to produce approx 300' of fence banner for our local school. It needs to be a little taller than what Im able to print on my 360 so Im outsourcing. Also, can someone recommend a supplier? They'd like to get a few years use out of it and it will be taken down and stored in winter.

    When you say "fence banner", are you referring to mesh material?

    there are plenty of MM here that can do this product.
    since you want multiple years, would suggest reinforcing the corners/edges

    I guess thats my question too. Is mesh a better product than Vinyl w slits? I havent done a project of this type before.

    Mesh is much better than vinyl with slits. Vinyl with slits doesn't reduce wind resistance by much and imo looks really ugly. Either option will eventually tear though. The life you get out of it will all depend on the install (also +1 to reinforce all anchor points). Make sure it's tight to minimize any flapping in the wind, that's when you get tears.

    Will this be a solid 300' long ?? If so, that's gonna be quite cumbersome to roll up and store away without doing damage to it, just from the standpoint of mildew and such, let alone the weight factor.

    Well its 300' total but I imagine it would be done in sections for ease of handling. That would be a big roll :) Appreciate the info. Can anyone recommend a good supplier for this?

    Signs2Trade can handle your mesh banner project. Great print quality with their GS Vutek printers.

    We put up 4, 6' x 50' banners printed on 12oz mesh, onto a construction jobsite fence. The entire fence blew over. Has anyone else had this happen? We ended up cutting wind slits in the mesh.

    What's the entire size of the fence ?? In other words, how much fence was covered by your mesh banner ??
