Perth Graphics Centre is often asked, “Do you do banners?” Yes, we certainly do.
But let’s explain a little about banners: Banners come in many different forms. There are roll up banners, pull up banners, vinyl banners, retractable banners, banner stands, street banners, PVC banners, mesh banners, and other forms of banners.
So that we can sort out what’s what, it’s important to explain how each banner works.
Vinyl and PVC Banners
These are strong banners that usually include ropes and eyelets, and that can be suspended across poles, put on fences and are outdoor durable. Made from heavy duty PVC, these banners are digitally printed with solvent-based inks and can be any size from a metre or so long, to a hundred metres long – it all depends on your application.
Retractable banners are also called pull up banners and roll up banners. They have a base cassette into which the banner pulls out and is then stood up using a stand from behind. Perfect for exhibitions and displays, roll up banners and retractable banners are cheap and easy to transport.
Hopefully that clears up what banners are all about. If you need banners, Perth Graphics Centre is here to help.

Pull up banners Perth
Western Australian company Solargain contacted Perth Graphics Centre to produce 12 banners for its Perth office, and as you can see, the results are especially effective.
All of our banners are printed in-house, and with our super high-resolution printer, pull up banners come out crisp and bright. Our banners are also laminated, meaning they’re more durable, able to be pulled out and packed away without fear of scratching off the print.
Above: Banner printing done right here in Perth.
If you want pull up banners, Perth Graphics Centre is able to make anything from one to one hundred with quick turnaround and great service. Ask our professional team about your banner needs today.

When it comes to banners, Perth Graphics Centre is king. We’ve printed so many banners, Perth is literally covered in them.
So far, kilometres of banners have been printed, to the point where we’ve had to upgrade our machinery to cope. Our industrial-grade solvent printers allow us to achieve the finest detail and best colours, while still being able to meet customer’s deadlines.
Usually turnaround is about a week, and if you want just one, it’s no hassles. We can also print hundreds for product launches or specials. A simple “Now Open!” is also a great idea to attract attention.
Then you have the large format version you can see above, which was used as a sailtrack skin in place of metal.
If you want banners, Perth Graphics Centre is your one-stop-shop. Send us a size and a quantity over the email, and we’ll fire a quote back to you straight away.
We look forward to hearing from you.

Banner printing is one of the most common requests we are asked for at Perth Graphics Centre. With our large format solvent-based ink printer, banner printing is simple and cost effective.
Banner printing also eliminates vinyl being stuck onto the banner, which has the tendency to curl up and fall off over time. Banner printing saves time as it’s run through our printer in one pass, plus it enables outdoor durability. Your printed banner can come with ropes, eyelets, pockets or any combination of the three.
Standard sizes are 3m x 1m and 2.4m x 1.2m, however any size is possible, from 600mm x 1200mm right up to grand format 6m x 24m. The limit is simply your budget and the area you want to fill.
Banner printing allows you to roll up your banner, so you don’t have to worry about cracking or peeling of the inks. If you’ve got a large quantity, we can also pass on a discount. Please head to our contact page to find out more about banner printing.

We’re often asked if we do banners – Perth Graphics Centre specialises in them. We do vinyl banners, rollup banners and flag banners.
Vinyl banners are the easiest and cheapest sign to make in a large size or quantity and because they can be rolled up and stored, vinyl banners can be used over and over again.
Perth Graphics Centre can produce vinyl banners big enough to cover the side of a building (like the one we did for Scitech above), or to cross a street. Alternatively you can make a banner sign to sit out the front of your shop with a big “SALE NOW ON” message if you require.
Anything is possible, so please tell us what kind of banner sign you’re after, and we’ll get you the best price and the quickest turnaround. Call us today.

With several councils opting to use street pole banners, Perth Graphics Centre is happy to offer a solution to print and install the banners whether it be one or one hundred.
With double sided banners, the best way is to install two banners back to back, and we use self tensioning cords and springs to keep it nice and tight, yet allowing enough give for wind not to affect it.
Perth Graphics Centre has the equipment, manpower and experience to get your suburb’s message across and increase your exposure. Head to our contact page to ask for a quote today.

Often we are asked to install a sign which is bigger than a single sheet size of sign material like corflute or signwhite. This means joins which can be unsightly. The solution? A sailtrack banner skin.
Using a special aluminium track and kedar edging, the banner becomes a tight skin which can be stretched to fit the size needed. The sign above was requested to be made out of three sheets of corflute due to its size (several metres long). To be honest, this wouldn’t have looked very nice.
Perth Graphics Centre opted to produce a sailtrack banner skin, enabling a single face to be created, while still giving outdoor life of a few years. We can produce a sign 2.5-metres tall by 20-metres long if necessary, and all in one piece.
Call us with any questions, or ask for a quote on your large format signs.

PVC vinyl banners are a quick and effective way of getting your message across. Using ropes and eyelets, these PVC vinyl banners are lightweight and strong, as well as being easy to put up yourself.
Vinyl banners are made from PVC which is woven and coated, making it extremely strong and able to be used outdoors. Exterior grade banners can often replace traditional metal signage when stretched tight and capped with an aluminium sail track edge.
Banners can certainly be cheap depending on your size and quantity requirements. All our vinyl banners are printed with solvent based inks, meaning the lettering won’t crack or peel off like traditional vinyl stuck onto banner material.
Using solvent based digital print also means you can create full colour graphics, and with our 2.5m wide printer, achieving large format sizes is no problem.

Our client, Handcrafters House in Midland WA needed a sign on their fascia but the deadline was quite tight. Rather than us tell the story, we thought it better to post the unedited Testimonial supplied by the owner, Michelle:
“Recently I purchased a new premises for my patchwork & quilting business in Midland. The fascias on this building are huge and I wasn’t really sure where to start.
I found Perth Graphics Centre online through the Yellow Pages and emailed them to which they replied first thing the following morning. (Note to self – prompt and professional). A day or so later Tony and I were standing out the front of my shop measuring the signage area and discussing what would be needed.
As I dabble in a bit of graphic design I wanted to design my own signage, which was not a problem for Perth Graphics. After a lot of emails back and forth, due mainly to my indecision on colour, design, size and placement (after all I wanted it to be perfect) we came to the final product which was installed less than a week later! All of this happened in the weeks leading up to Christmas, one of the most busiest times of the year.
I was so impressed with Tony & Clare’s team at Perth Graphics that I offered to write to this testimonial. The quality of their work, their professionalism and their patience with my ever changing mind is second to none. And now my artwork sits proudly above my shop for all to see! Thank you Perth Graphics!”
Thankyou Michelle. We appreciate the business too! Just a side note… Whilst this sign was being installed, we had one gentleman approach us and ask where Handcrafters House had shifted to. He saw the sign and pulled in off the street to come and see what Handcrafters House had to offer! Proof positive that good signage really does work.”

Occasionally, Perth Graphics Centre is called upon to engineer a solution for a particular application. In the case of Scitech in Perth, the requirement was that banners needed to be changed without using a Cherry Picker each time. Our team was able to create a system that allows the banners to be changed over in a short time without having to use high lift equipment.
