Why does Bantex stand out from the crowd?
Bantex is the premier vinyl media for outdoor banners available thanks to our unmatched color vibrancy, image resolution, and resilience.
“The print quality and color gamuts that come off the Bantex media is phenomenal — our customers always rave about it. And it really helps us to always provide the high quality product that they are looking for and that we want to provide.”
— Jon Toy, owner of FastSigns from York, PA.
Surface texture matters for print quality and resolution. A lot of screen-grade vinyl comes with higher dot gain than is recommended for industrial inkjet printing. While this dot gain is necessary to ensure ink coverage for screen printing, it’s not ideal for the hyper-focused print heads on today’s high-resolution inkjets.
Bantex uses a patented microtexture finish, so banners printed on our material have up to 10% higher resolution than those printed on competitive banner media.
Finding the right ink and material combination is often difficult if you’re using imported banner vinyl. Bantex makes matching your ink and print media easy. It’s engineered to print with all solvent, eco-solvent, UV-curable, and latex inkjet printers.
Latex inks require high heat to cure properly. Banner media that isn’t properly suited for high temperatures can warp, curl, and even melt during production. Bantex, on the other hand, is designed for latex printing and carries the HP Latex Certification seal of approval. No curling, no jamming, no problem.
Find out for yourself just how good our material is! We offer free sample rolls for testing Bantex against your current banner media on your own printer. We’ll even cover the cost of shipping.
Customization opens up a world of possibilities for print shops looking to expand their offerings. We manufacture our vinyl in thousand-yard rolls, which we then cut down into different sizes to meet demand. Unlike many other manufacturers, Bantex is available in sizes that fit standard large-format printers that use 25 and 50 yard rolls, plus widths up to 80 inches wide.
We produce vinyl media for every large format on the market. If you invented a bigger one yourself, we could custom cut you a special width at no extra charge.
We create Bantex from start to finish in-house at our York, Pennsylvania facility, where it’s manufactured, quality tested, portioned, custom packaged, and finally shipped to your shop. We never outsource and part of the process, so we can guarantee the quality of every yard of material we ship.
Shelf life is an underappreciated aspect in banner vinyl quality. Over time, plasticizers added to vinyl banner material will migrate away from the compound, which creates a plastic layer on the surface of the banner media that rejects ink. The older the vinyl is, the more difficult it becomes to achieve high-quality prints.
Thanks to its industry-leading manufacturing standards, Bantex is able to give a six month print/shelf life guarantee against color quality and resolution loss. For print shops, that means when delays happen or cancellations occur, you have a vinyl that will wait until the time is right.
