    My town has about 50 of the pole banners throughout town that are now starting to show their age and my town would now like to replace them..

    The material is a cloth fabric, possibly sunbrella? These banners feature a pole pocket to on the top and a grommet at the bottom. They are printed on both sides.

    Is there a material I can print with my solvent jet printer? or are these traditionally screen printed?

    Thanks

    Screen print is what I imagine as well with some further investigation.

    Attached is an image of one of the existing banner.

    What is this cloth type fabric called??

    is it sunberlla?

    Our sunbrella looks stiffer than that, could be because with no bottom support and many years in use all the flapping softened it up. So I cannot tell you with 100% accuracy that is sunbrella.

    I outsourced mine (since sewing is the only thing I don't do in house) to Quality Banner. They give a 5 year replacement guarantee which was a good selling point to the customer and they do very nice double sided printing with the pole pockets lining up.

    Yes no bottom support. That what puzzeld me.. Cutting corners I suppose making one pole kit work to do 2 banner? CLEVER.. They do flap in the wind some but look good.

    Thanks westpoint for the info. I'll check them out.

    Is there also a materail called poly poplin? or is this the same as sunbrella?

    There is an Ultra Poplin PES C240 made by Ultra Flex Systems Inc. It is like Sunbrella, just lighter weight. The Sunbrella is a 10 oz Acrylic woven yarn while the Ultra Poplin is a 7.1 oz 100% knitted polyester.
