Usually our banners outlast their usefulness.
All of our banners should last for years outside with little to no fading or degradation. One of the biggest factors affecting the length of time that a banner will last outdoors is in the installation of the banner. If a banner is installed properly, the banner should last for several years with the banner material most likely outlasting the ink that is printed on the banner.
Another factor to consider when hanging your banner is the amount of sunlight that the banner will receive. Most banners are printed with eco-solvent inks that are fade resistant so that they can endure long outdoor use. So if your banner is installed in a location that receives a normal amount of sunlight daily, the banner should last as long as 3 to 5 years. But on the other hand if your banner is installed where it will endure excessive amounts of daily sunlight it will begin to fade before it's time.
Keep in mind that there are literally tons of different types of banners for different types of use. And while most banners are crafted to last for a very long time, it's always best to give our banner consultants a call and express your specific banner needs. In most cases we will be able to match a banner to your needs and within your budget!
