How much will my vinyl banner weigh?

The weight of your banner will vary with size and type. Below I’ve outlined the different kinds of vinyl we carry:

13 oz. Vinyl

  • These banners weigh 13 oz. per square yard.
  • For a finished banner (grommets & hems) use this formula:
    total surface area in feet (length x height) * 0.12 = weight in lbs
  • An unfinished banner will weigh slightly less.

90/10 Vinyl Mesh

  • These banners weigh 10% less than 9 oz. vinyl.
  • For a finished banner use this formula:
    total surface area * 0.083 = weight in lbs

70/30 Vinyl Mesh

  • These banners weigh 30% less than 9 oz. vinyl.
  • For a finished banner use this formula:
    total surface area * 0.065 = weight in lbs

30/70 Vinyl Mesh

  • These banners weigh 70% less than 9 oz. vinyl.
  • For a finished banner use this formula:
    total surface area * 0.028 = weight in lbs

With any kind of banner, remember to add a few pounds for packaging.
