What is the difference between Coated and PVC banner

Coated banner refers to the high-quality printing material produced by the coating machine for multiple scraping, which can be used for the printing of logos, T-shirt printing, backpacks, handbags and other products. PVC banner, on the other hand, is a special kind of fabric, which is commonly used in commercial advertising and outdoor advertising production.


Coated banner and PVC banner are both printing materials, which have the characteristics of good printing effect and high brightness. They can be brushed as many times as needed to ensure a clearer, more visible print.

  • Different materials: Coated banners are usually made of polyester fibers, while PVC banners are mainly made of PVC materials, polyester or carbon fibers.
  • Different light transmittance: Coated banner has weak light transmittance, which is more suitable for printing production that does not require light transmittance, such as T-shirt printing and handbag printing. PVC banner has good light transmittance, which is suitable for large-scale advertising display, so that the advertising pattern can be naturally presented and the color is more vivid, so as to achieve better visual effects.
  • Different applications: Due to the poor light transmission of coated banners, they are suitable for traditional printing fields that do not require light transmission effects. On the contrary, PVC banners are often used in advertising and cultural display fields that require high light transmission, such as billboards, exhibitions and outdoor advertising.
