Roll Up Banners: Display Your Message Effectively

Roll up banners, pull up banners, trade-show banners, shopping centre banners – call them what you will, they’re all the same. These light, portable banners are cheap, quick to produce and get your message across effectively.


There are many options for roll up banners, but seen here is the most popular – a two-metre tall roll up banner with two swing out feet and carry case. The with is 850mm, which gives you a good amount of room to place your logo and a few details. We always advise people to keep the text simple and clear, with no more than four bullet points. Adding photos to your roll up banners is always a good idea, too.

If you want to attract attention, use bold, bright colours that tie-in with your logo or branding. And if you have a style guide for your brand, we can make the specification work within the size of our roll up banners, too.

How to put roll up banners up

The banner assembles within 30 seconds and you don’t have to be two metres tall to be able to put it up. Simply attach the stability pole to the centre of the top rail and then simply push the banner up. Once it’s up, then slip the pole into the back of the banner base, and you’re done.

Of course, if you’d like to see how one of our roll up banners gets put together, then we have demonstration units in our office and would be happy to show you.

Banners Perth’s best quality and quickest turnaround

When it comes to banners Perth Graphics Centre has it nailed. We print banners here in our Perth manufacturing plant day in, day out, which means we have complete control over the whole banner production process.


Not only that, but we can install banners as well – Perth Graphics Centre is therefore your complete sign shop for banners.


What makes our banners so good?

It comes down to our materials choices. We have carefully selected the woven PVC that works best with our printers as well as the ones which will stand up to wind and rain for the longest period. Banners are susceptible to tearing, so we work closely with a specialty canvas maker to ensure the stitching is strong and the eyelets have been reinforced.

Rather than using inks which sit on the surface, we use inks which etch into the surface of the PVC, which means a longer lasting print. The pigments in our inks are also very lightfast, so UV degradation is much less.

How should I look after my banners?

To ensure your banners last the longest, Perth Graphics Centre recommends rolling them for storage, not folding them. Folding banners can induce creases, which create a weak point in the banner. Weak points can lead to tearing, so rolling them up is best.

Also, wipe down the surface of the banner every week or two with a damp cloth and some soapy water. This removes dirt which can etch itself into the surface, abrading the face and discolouring the banner.

Ensure these simple steps are followed, and your banners will last a long time indeed.

If you’re wanting banners Perth Graphics Centre can help

We’re happy to use your artwork, or we can create artwork for your banners, and we will also make recommendations on sizes of banners, if you need to. Turnaround is fast (usually within a week), so you can get on with making money and attracting attention with your beautiful new banners.

We’re confident than your choice to use Perth Graphics Centre for your banners will be a good one. When you need banners, think Perth Graphics Centre.

Banner installation – doing it right with Perth Graphics Centre

Banners are a versatile method of advertising, but a lot of them are installed incorrectly. Find out how to do it correctly by getting Perth Graphics Centre to install your banners.


Simply putting star pickets into the ground isn’t enough. Banners act like a sail and catch a lot of wind, so ensuring they don’t tear is critical. After all, a business doesn’t look all that professional when there’s a torn piece of canvas flapping around in front of a shop.


Have a look in the corners of the banner shown here and you’ll notice that it isn’t just rope attached to the star pickets – there are springs as well. The springs attach to the star pickets using D-shackles. The banner is strung up by feeding the rope through the spring, then back through the corner eyelets and pulled tight. They are then tied off.

What this does is allows the banner a certain amount of movement. The banner has some give in it so that when the wind picks up, the banner moves and lets the air past. This prevents the banner from tearing and gives your banner a far greater outdoor life.

If you want a banner installed properly, then call the experts at Perth Graphics Centre. You can be sure it’s always done properly.

Fence Signage

With most properties these days having large areas of fencing, isn’t it worth considering using fence signage?


Perth Graphics Centre can print and install your fence signage in a variety of methods, whether it’s using banners with ropes and eyelets, banners with sailtrack edging, or metal signs.


For JHW, we opted for metal signs, installed onto the metal fencing, but other fences may benefit from fence mesh banners. To determine which is the best way for you to use your fences as advertising spaces, please give us a call on 9248 6226, or click on our contact page to request a quote.

We can visit your premises and advise you on the best way to go. So, if you have a fence you’d like to advertise on, look no further than Perth Graphics Centre.

Heavy duty banners

Just about every business can use banners, but making sure they last is where heavy duty banners come into play. Some banners are made for short term use, while other banners need to be used over and over again.


In the photo above, you can see one of our large format printers in action, printing heavy duty banners. Perth Graphics Centre has invested in equipment which reliably and quickly prints banners using solvent-based inks. Some banners are printed using latex inks, a relatively new technology. Rather than experiment with inks which have only been on the market for a few years, Perth Graphics Centre’s priority has been to utilise trusted methods.


By staying with tried and proven print technology, Perth Graphics Centre can ensure that your banners last for a long time. Our banner stock is also heavier, stronger and the ropes are heavy duty, with reinforced eyelets.

When you want your banners to last, trust the team at Perth Graphics Centre.

Cafe Barriers

Cafe barriers are an ideal way to mark out the boundaries of your cafe’s seating area, and here at Perth Graphics Centre, we can make them for you.


Using a high-grade aluminium or steel and with our printed cafe barrier inserts, you can use them for advertising. The inserts, which are made from heavy duty banner, can be changed over when needed.

The standard size is approximately 2100mm x 800mm however if you have custom sizes we can also accommodate your requests. So, when you think of cafe barriers, think of Perth Graphics Centre.

Large Banners

A quick, temporary way of getting your message across is a banner. Perth Graphics Centre recently installed this large banner onto the St Luke building in Karrinyup, announcing the arrival of the doctor’s surgery.


Using ropes, eyelets and bungee cord, we’ve positioned the banner for maximum impact with minimum interference. It has been secured to be safe from wind and rain, however the materials we use for our large banners are all weatherproof.

Our large format printer can print any size banner, so if it’s a simple For Sale banner or a billboard, we can do it.

There are also light and heavy duty grades of banner material, so if you aren’t sure, we can help guide you through the process of choosing the best materials for your banner.

Banner Printing

In this article, we’ll explain a little bit about banner printing. Perth Graphics Centre prints banners day in and day out, and has done for many years, meaning we have a lot of experience printing banners.


The banner material to print on is fairly standard – a 440gsm gloss, 1000×1000 denier. Don’t worry if that doesn’t mean much; all you need to know is that it’s a medium weight, gloss banner with good tear resistance in wind.

Printing banners can be done in a couple of ways: screen-printed banners or digitally printed banners. Screenprinting is usually done for huge quantities – 100 banners or more. Today, screen-printed banners are all but extinct. Digital printing has taken over, and is just as cost effective. There are a few methods for printing digitally – solvent-based inks, UV-curable inks and latex-based inks.

Here at Perth Graphics Centre, we have invested in the latest equipment so we can do banner printing with solvent inks and UV-curable inks, the two most common forms of printing. Each will last outside in the weather and each have good clarity and colour. So you can be sure when you order your banner from Perth Graphics Centre, you’re getting a quality product.

Lastly, we come to the finishing. Most of the time we use ropes and eyelets, but you can also incorporate Velcro, pockets or simple hems – it’s up to you. Each of these are professionally stitched and we DO NOT recommend wind-holes as these induce tears, rather than letting the wind through.

Hopefully, that helps explain the whole process. If you have any questions about banner printing, or just need some more information about banners, Perth Graphics Centre is here to help.

Fence Mesh Printing

Sure we print banners, but did you know we also print fencing mesh? Perth Graphics Centre is printing more fence mesh for Perth real-estate developers, construction companies and renovators than ever before.

There are several grades of fence mesh available, from heavy weight, to light weight, and versions with a more open weave to let more air through, while the closed weave mesh allows for more exposure for your logo and message.

Signage rebrand for Perth pharmacy

Perth Graphics Centre was invited to rebrand the signage for Savemor Pharmacy after the company moved out from under the Guardian Pharmacy name.


The job entailed replacing lightbox faces, installing large sailtrack banners, fitting vinyl to windows and installing foam PVC signs. Obviously, a signage rebrand like this takes time and careful planning. But that’s exactly what Perth Graphics Centre is best at.


The end result was a job that made the customer extremely happy and to this date Savemor has been a loyal customer, buying many more signs from Perth Graphics Centre.
