North Coast Banners Sets A Stage With Band Scrims In Record Timing

No one manned the phones at 5 a.m. at North Coast Banners in Ann Arbor, MI when the phone rang with a frantic customer on the other line.

“We hoped that North Coast Banners would be able to do a quick turnaround on our stage scrims, so that we’d have them in time for our CD release party on Saturday, June 9th,” explains James Todd, lead singer and base player in Abandoned Souls, a London, Ontario-based band.

Todd hardly had time to catch his breath before he received a return call from North Coast Banners just two hours later, at 7 a.m. After a brief wait, he was reassured later that morning that his order would be ready in time for his event.

It is experiences like these that have bands and companies coming back to North Coast Banners for their stage scrims and other plastic banner needs. Even in a pinch, North Coast Banners “went all out to make sure that we would have these great looking, beautiful signs for our party,” says Todd.

Abandoned Souls’ new album is titled, “Damned If You Don’t.”

North Coast Banners does.

Digital Printing Substrates

There are a variety of substrates available for digital printing. Each surface creates a variation in both the texture and look of an image. To get a better idea of the disparities between different materials, I scanned some of our samples for a side by side comparison.

Vinyl
We often print 13 oz vinyl banners for a variety of uses. Vinyl mesh can also be useful for bands and festivals because it allows sound to pass through the banner. The image below compares a solid 13 oz vinyl with two different weights of vinyl mesh: 70/30 & 30/70.

Fabric
There are two different fabric substrates available for printing: canvas and dye sublimated poly poplin. As you can see from the images below, each has a different texture and weight.

canvas and dye sublimated poly poplin substrates

Hard Surfaces
We can also print on styrene (a flat but pliable material) or gatorboard (rigid foam core, 3/16″ thick). Both surfaces have a similar, slightly shiny, finish.
