    Is there any say newer solvant printers not able to print directly to banner or canvas material.

    just asking that because my main competitor has a solvant printer and I've never seen a direct to banner print out of him and Im printing lots of them.

    any thoughts?

    Maybe he just flat out does not offer banners for whatever reason.

    I think that all roll printers will print banners. Beats me too, why some guys are still sticking vinyl onto banners. Very slow in my opinion.

    exactly what I thought every banner I see made from them are stuck on and not printed. In my opinion banners are not used as long as signs they are mostly out for events or temporarily promoting stuff and rolled back up and stored. Oh well I guess everybody has there way of doing and my way is to print. LOL
