When it comes to “bang for your buck,” nothing beats banners…

Banners demand attention. They’re colourful, they grab a share of the air, and they’re easy and relatively inexpensive to produce too. Anyone with even a modest printer, or even a cutting plotter can participate in the market for banners.

Metamark’s MD-FL Series of printable banner materials takes the variables out of the banner media equation and introduces premium features and performance to a materials market segment that’s arguably better known for being led by low price – but where there’s often a price to be paid for economy.


The newly formulated materials are part of Metamark’s MD-Class digital materials portfolio and so offer broad spectrum compatibility with modern digital ink species including Solvent, Eco-Solvent, UV and Latex.

The materials’ print sides present a clean ink-receptive surface with no manufacturing process-related aberrations to impact the printed result and a uniform white that doesn’t vary markedly either within the roll or across batches.

A variety of weights is available to suit a range of application demands whether indoor or out. The structural integrity is class-leading with high quality scrims forming the support within the material’s plastic composition.

The materials can be easily cut, respond well to welding, taping and the provision of eyelets. In use, the finished articles produced using the MD-FL series hang well and endure outdoor conditions that would see others cracking or yellowing.


The proof of course is in the printing and it’s here according to Metamark that the MD-FL Series’ credentials really prove themselves. The materials’ ink holding characteristics produce results with orders of resolution that are typically not associated with digitally printed banners.

With such high quality and consistency available in a material that’s priced so competitively, we think that applications are likely to be expanded.

In terms of “getting a share of the air,” nothing works as well as a generously sized banner. Producing large graphics using MD-FL Banner Materials means that applications beyond the traditional can be considered for such materials and that they can serve a need where scale and the fragile nature of some substrates for quality print might have put a stop to a project before it even gets out of the block.

Metamark is convinced that anyone with experience operating a modern inkjet printer will immediately see the benefits the reformulated MD-FL series delivers. To help prove its point, Metamark will send a sample roll to anyone wishing to test its claims free of charge.
