Fabric Banners have become one of
the most useful forms of brand identification in the recent years.
Displayed in retail stores, hanging at sports events and museums,
used in point-of-purchase construction, or forming the backdrop
of trade show installations, these banners are produced by Digital
Sublimation, Screen Printing or Offset Dye Sublimation Printing.
At Screen-Trans, fabric banners produced by these processes are
manufactured in our 19,000 sq. ft. Moonachie, NJ plant. By operating
a managed control system, consistent color and quality are maintained
through the run of each job. Banner projects range in size from
2 inch labels to 50 feet banners, with a maximum un-seamed width
of 72 inches and with quantities of a single unit on up to orders
for thousands. Sizes larger than 72 inches are produced in two or
more pieces which are then seamed together in appropriate places.
All banners are sewn, finished, packaged and prepared for shipping
Fabrics available include: polysatin, polypoplin, polysheer, and polyduck. Screen-Trans stocks banner stands for counter and floor displays. For banner hanging situations, we have many sizes in a large inventory of both dowels and grommets.
Digital Sublimation: For banners of high-quality photographic images, sublimation is the preferred process. Screen-Trans currently runs multi Mimaki JV-4 wide format inkjet printers (63" to 74") with a true 720 x 720 dpi. We maintain brilliant color quality with our accu-trans® sublimation process which utilizes the company's proprietary inks and coatings. Digital preparations and alterations are handled exclusively by our digital department staffed with industry professionals who understand textiles, design and its applications.
Screen Printing: Many projects are more cost effective when reproduced at Screen-Trans by traditional screen printing and table screening. Screening on tables totaling 100 yards long, banners often have many PMS ink colors. Separation films for screen sizes up to 63" x 96" are made by the in-house imagesetter. The production line is run by technicians, each with more than 25 years of screening experience.
Offset Dye Sublimation Printing: When high-quality
photographic banner quantities run at least 500 or more pieces,
it may be cost effective to utilize the process of offset dye sublimation
printing. With industry experience since 1975 in this process, our
professionals know how to prepare images and make appropriate color
adjustments for 4-color offset sublimation. Pre-press proofs from
the accu-trans® sublimation proofing process virtually eliminates
costly on-press proofing and on-site approvals.
Combo Printing: Banners printed by any of the three
processes above may also be enhanced by the addition of metallic
foil in specific design areas. In this process, Foil-On®, an
adhesive is screened in the design shape, onto the fabric banner.
When the banner is placed in contact with metallic foil and run
through a heat press, the foil becomes an integral part of the fabric
banner. Foil is available in gold, silver, and many bright colors.
