Horizontal pop-up banners are generally constructed as A-frames and built completely before printing. As of December 2015, you can purchase pre-built banners on Alibaba.com for $10 to $50, depending on volume, or professionally printed pop-up banners from Displays2Go.com for $150. Pop-up banners offer an attractive, lightweight and waterproof sign or advertisement for any environment.

Mesh materials are some of the most difficult materials for screen printers to handle. In addition, polyester bleeds color when heated. Therefore, screen printers require extensive experience to deliver professional banners and generally request a minimum order of 10 banners.

When screen-printing on mesh, ScreenPrinting.com advises a mesh count of 110 to 156 with multiple thin layers of ink. In addition, printers should use a catalyst binder to speed up the curing process. If the ink is too thick, it fills the holes and causes the garment to shrink or burn.
