    Any fellow Canadians here found a good gray back material for banner stands that runs well on latex at a decent price point?

    Our main suppliers are ND and Grimco and the only one they seem to have is Sihl, which I'm not very keen on.

    Dang, I have a bunch at a very low price, but not sure how getting it there will still save you money unfortunately.

    I'm always jealous when you post your materials and prices, people seem to like them as well.

    It's different up here and can be hard to find certain things unfortunately.

    We use ND's 13oz GB PET non curl and it works well. We print on it with Eco-solvent and UV and have had good results. Looks like they list Latex as having "fair" results on this stock....whatever that means lol.

    https://shop.ndgraphics.com/product.htm?PRODUCT=YAW111&SOURCE=Category&CATEGORY=MAT-BAN-DIGITAL

    edited to add: ND's version is VERY similar to Ultraflex's version which they label as 15oz. http://www.ultraflexx.com/wp-content/uploads/tech-sheets/SuperSmooth PET Blockout - TDS.pdf

    My impression was that Bannerbrite/TVF/Ultraflex all use & relabel that same stock.

    Anyways....hope that helps. At least now that ND sells HP maybe they can test some out for you and see if it prints nice.

    Does Grimco not carry the Biteline brand up there? We've been using the Briteline Roll Up 36 for a few years with our latex machine.

    Thanks, I never saw that stuff, gonna have to give it a try. We did try a lot of Ultraflex stuff, I don't think we ever tried the PET though.

    From what I gathered Bannerbrite and TVF are the same, while Ultraflex is seperate. We had a bunch of 18oz banner we were doing pole banners with, the Ultraflex always had plasticizer issues on the second side. Switched to Bannerbrite (labeled TVF) and it runs great.


    I wish they did, I've never seen it listed on their website and when I've asked them about this subject they've never mentioned it. Usually they're very quick to recommend Briteline products.


    Doesn't mention anything about latex though, might give it a shot. How much is it a roll?

    We don't have an account with them but I keep seeing their name pop up.

    Did you ever give the GB Roll up film from All Graphics a try on the latex?

    Im literally in the exact same situation you were in, was using the sihl for rollups and I hate how it prints. Was going to try the Magic POSPRO+LX but its 239 compared to 99 for the GB from AGS.

    We don't use All Graphics, but if this GB works then that would be pretty great with that price point. I may have to set up an account with them.

    I wonder if anyone here can speak to this stuff on latex.

    Edit: just realized that's what Canuck recommended, I think I'll just have to take the chance and order a roll.
