Vinyl Banners

Most economical, standard scrim banner for outdoors.

Our standard outdoor banner is a 13oz. vinyl scrim banner (Scrim is the coarse, gridded thread lining, a texture that you can see, that gives the banner strength.) We hem and grommet all of our banners, meaning the banner fabric is doubled over at the edges to prevent the grommets (silver rings for hanging) from tearing away in the regular winds.

Note: All outdoor banners should be taken down before high winds or expected storms.

Mesh Banners

Slightly more expensive, LET’S THE WIND BLOW THROUGH

We offer mesh material — which has a strong polyester gridded base, coated in PVC, leaving holes for the breeze to blow through — for large banners to prevent damage in winds. Mesh is recommended for building, scaffolding and fence banners, but also works well for large indoor displays because it doesn’t move with a slight breeze. This material prints beautifully, the holes are rarely noticeable, and give a textured look at close range. (A very cool printed window covering for indoors!)

Pole Banners

Pole banners, also known as boulevard banners, are both decorative and informative and can be used for special events or directions. We offer wind/resistant hardware that attaches to most light poles. We also offer wall-mount banners that can be used for building faces. We use standard 13 oz. scrim banner printed two layers back to back to make durable double-sided banners.

The double-sided banners can be hung one to a pole or two banners flanking one pole. All are vertical or square, and can vary in size depending on application and height of installation.

Note: All outdoor banners should be taken down before high winds or expected storms.

Retractable “Pop-Up” Vertical Banners

Ideal for showrooms & trade shows

We use anti-curl banner, and high resolution printing for our retractable banners, also commonly called pop-ups. Our standard frame size includes a 33.5″ x 78″ viewable area (82.5″ floor to top of frame). Aptly named, our anti-curl banner prevents the vertical edges of the pop-up banner from curling, ensuring a polished look for years if cared for. The silver-framed, pop-ups come with a carrying case.

Happy Customers

“Port City Signs has done a great job on our Low Speed Vehicles Decals here on the UNCW Campus. They are fast, affordable, and very reliable. They always treat us with a polite professional manner and make sure our vehicles are decaled with best quality materials . Thanks again for all you do for UNCW.”

Lawrence Heath

UNCW

At Red Door Homes we want the best and we frankly want everything BRANDED. One of the most important aspects of marketing is having a consistent and recognizable company that is seen in various formats and instances.

That is why we wrap our vehicles. For starters, it looks highly professional and, why not having mobile billboards if you are already paying for the vehicle. We work with Sabrina to update our tailgates from time to time, matching our billboards, again, for that ease of recognition.

Do yourself and your business a favor – partner with Port City Signs.

Page Robertson

General Manager, Red Door Homes

“Port City Signs and Graphics has wrapped 8 vehicles for us over the last two years. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of work from Sabrina and her team.

Branding for a business is important and our full vehicle wraps help us to achieve this. Our vans are rolling billboards in the Cape Fear Area! If you are wanting to increase your company’s visibility trust your vehicles to Port City Signs.”
