Frontlit banner for promotional and exhibition use
Laminated frontlit banner materials are lightweight and durable print materials perfect for short-term promotional and exhibition use.
Made from PVC formulated to survive outdoors, our frontlit banners offer a solution for high-quality printed displays. Products are available in widths up to 3.2m and 5m, ensuring no limitations for wide format applications.
The laminated finish offers extra protection from the elements, while black back and rip-stop options are available for specialist or demanding applications.
PVC frontlit banners are also compatible with Solvent, Eco-Solvent, UV-C, and Latex inks, ensuring compatibility with any wide format printer.
The level of print detail possible with frontlit banners is exceptionally high due to no mesh, ensuring top-quality one-sided displays. We recommend frontlit banners for wall-mounted advertisements, fence signage, and temporary indoor graphics.
You can expect frontlit banners to last several years outdoors, although this depends on the ink composition and weather exposure.

Frequently Asked Questions
What are frontlit banners?
Frontlit banners are PVC banners illuminated with a front-facing light source, meaning no light penetrates from behind, as with backlit banners. Frontlit banners are fantastic for high-quality displays with eye-catching colours.
What are frontlit banners made from?
The most common material is PVC (polyvinyl chloride), the world’s third-most widely produced plastic. PVC is exceptionally resistant to the elements and can withstand abrasion and UV light, making it the perfect material for hard-wearing outdoor displays.
What are the different types of frontlit banners?
Frontlit banners are differentiated by material weight, measured in grams per square metre (g/m2). Heavier fabrics like Vistaflex L440 are best for high-traffic areas and larger displays, while lighter banners like Vistaflex L280 are best for short term protected displays.
What are the applications of frontlit banners?
Frontlit banners are one-sided banners suitable for wall-mounted and post-mounted displays visible from the front. They are perfect for wide and large-format public service announcements, advertisements, branding, exhibitions, and events.
How to install frontlit banners?
We recommend hemming and eyeletting frontlit banners for installation with a fixing medium like cable ties, rope, or clamps. The precise installation method depends on the installation surface and banner size, with a heavier, larger banner requiring more fixings and a stronger hem.
