If you’re in the market for some new plastic roll banners, you may be wondering where you can buy them now that your old plastic roll banner company has shut down. These days, there are only a few roll banner companies out there. But, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.
We’ll help you understand your options for finding a new printing company. We will also explain how the printing business works and where it’s headed.
Flexographic Printed Plastic Roll Banners
Flexographic printing technology is traditional, utilizing a series of plates to print an image onto the thin plastic material of the banner. Because the printing industry is always adapting, not many businesses still utilize these older printing presses. It can be expensive to source parts and make repairs, thus companies who relied more heavily on these printing presses are closing down around the country. There are only a few companies left that still print banners with this technology.
The Future is Digital
The future of printing is digital! If you were already utilizing digital printing at your previous company, it will be seamless to transfer. But if you have never utilized digitally printed plastic roll banners, now is the opportunity to start!
Digital printing creates clear, sharp images, with much more flexibility. You can opt for more complex artwork, and there’s no maximum number of colors, as is the case with flexographic printing. Additionally, there is no startup fee and no extra fees for more complex artwork. If you move to digital printing ensures you won’t be left in the dust as the printing industry moves fully digital in the future.
If you already have a high-quality vector image of your artwork, it’s very easy to make the transition to digital printing. Digital printing is a quicker process, and banners are typically ready to ship within one week of approved artwork.

However, you would be responsible for shipping the plates and for a verification fee to see if the plates are usable. Contact us to discuss whether we may be able to reuse your plate.
