    Hi Guys

    Clients wants a “PVC” Banner with eyelets for outdoors but PVC free so is “green”. I’m sure I’ve seen suppliers advertising it but so far not found any, basically an alternative to the standard 440gsm PVC banners that is somewhat environmentally friendly.

    Cheers

    Warren

    Right now, I have samples of this PVC banner material from Papergraphics.

    I haven’t used it yet, but had one of their reps in to see me about a week ago, going over this and various other eco-friendly products they do.

    obviously, there are various others doing eco lines of products, just pointing this one out as i have it at hand.

    Just a consideration, these products can’t be recycled if using metal eyelets, so somebody would need to cut off the eyelets.
