Our popular retractable banners are constructed of 13 oz vinyl or 9 oz polyester and have a solid metal base that allows them to rise and retract smoothly. A complimentary carrying case is supplied with every retractable banner. Standard, premium, and deluxe versions come in a range of sizes to ensure that we have the proper size and fit for all of your trade fair, event, and promotional needs.
Your graphic and messaging can be printed on 13 oz. vinyl or 9 oz. polyester fabric, and our premium and deluxe retractable banners come with an adjustable pole so you can change the size of your display (standard banners include a non-adjustable pole). LED display lights are also available to accent your display. Your next trade fair or event will be your best yet thanks to the retractable banners’ durability, portability, and ease of usage, as well as the professional grade printing.
How to care for your retractable banners
If you set up and take down your retractable banner correctly, it will require little to no ongoing care and maintenance. Retracting the banner into the metal base between usage protects the material (fabric or vinyl) from damage. Additionally, protecting your stand, pole, and light by storing them in the padded case between uses should help prevent damage. As explained in our FAQ section, stains can be wiped away with a wet cloth (vinyl and fabric) or cleaned in rare circumstances (fabric only).
When putting up and pulling down your retractable banner, always exercise caution. Slowly remove the graphic off the base and replace it, keeping it centered on the base. It is not suggested to allow the image to quickly retract or snap back into the base, whether centered or uncentered. If you do so, your graphic and/or base may be permanently ruined. Carefully secure the rod to the graphic’s base and top. Mishandling or mistreating the pole could cause irrevocable damage to the banner, rendering it ineffective.
What is CMYK?
In offset printing, the standard color mode used in CMYK. CMYK, or Cyan, Magenta, Yellow & Black represent the four process colours in this mode. When you are creating your files, be sure to check the color mode as programs like Photoshop by default use RBG color, not CMYK. CMYK may look more dull on a computer screen than RGB; more noticeable in large solid color areas.
Accepted File Formats
We require industry standard formats for all uploaded files. We keep quality in mind when we print every job. We accept the following file formats: TIF – JPG – PDF – EPS – PSD. We accept CorelDraw, Pagemaker & Quark or similar files by converting them to industry standard graphic formats like JPG, TIF or PDF.
Rich Black vs 100% Black
Large black areas or fonts bigger than 36 points should use Rich Black which stops areas appearing gray. Rich Black is created with 30% Cyan, 30% Magenta, 30% Yellow, 100% Black. This setup will keep black areas looking rich and bold. For best results with regular body text, do not use Rich Black.
What Paper to Choose?
Paper should be addressed first in your design work. With postcards, the best option is to choose a thicker cardstock instead of a thinner text weight. The difference between these 2 types of paper is thickness. Our text weight is based on pounds and our card stock is weighted by points. Want to feel the difference? Order a Free Sample Kit today.
What is Font Outlining?
We might not have the same fonts on our systems as your computer, so when saving your files in a vector based program (Illustrator, InDesign, Quark, CorelDraw) please outline your fonts. This will convert them to a vector image, will not effect the clarity and will allow us to see the same text as you see on your screen.
We have many coating options at Printing New York. Matte, UV, silk and spot UV. Choose the coating based on your application. For example, if you want to write on your cards with a pen, do not choose UV coating as a pen won’t write on it. In this case a matte or uncoated stock coating would suit. Choose UV coating for flyers or banners and our rich silk gives a touch of elegance; 16pt stock a more durable feeling.
When printing, 300 PPI is the best print resolution for digital printers. The design of a file with a resolution below 300 PPI will result in blurring and pixelization. On the other hand, you should not design with a resolution higher than 300 PPI. As far as the eye can see, there will be no difference in print quality. It will also make your file much larger (increase file upload/transfer time).
We always recommend 300 PPI drawings to print, but we also know that sometimes you do not have the ability to edit your drawings. If you cannot print your files with a resolution of 300 PPI, you will have to take some measures to ensure that a lower resolution works for you.
We recommend that you set the resolution in your graphics editor (i.e. Photoshop) to 300 PPI before you start drawing your file. Increasing the resolution after the start will still result in blurring/pixelation.
All the work is checked by our team before printing. If we have any problems with the files, we will contact you and advise you how to change the format. Please note that conversion of both color and size mode will be done automatically without prior information.
During the analysis of the illustrations, we check
– if the files are presented in one of the accepted formats (PDF, JPG, TIFF, EPS or PS).
– if the number of pages is correct
– if the file supplied is greyscale (only if you have ordered a color print)
– if the file is the right size (otherwise we will scale your work to the desired size, however, this may result in a reduction in resolution. No additional bleeding will be added to the process either).
– if the drill lines have been specified
– if the appropriate fonts have been incorporated into the file.
To ensure that there are no white areas on the printed product, all files submitted should have a 2mm bleed on each side. This means that your design (both images and graphics) should always be 2mm larger than the actual print format. Failure to do so may result in slight variations, resulting in white margins. To ensure that the fonts and essential elements of your drawing are visible, place them at least 3mm away from the final format (not including bleeding) and do not use edges as edges in layouts.
– If you are submitting data for printing in an open format, the bleed should be 4mm on each side (e.g. A4 size including bleed should be 301×214mm).
– If you are submitting files for presentation folders, banners, monthly calendars, packaging or any other promotional technology products, please prepare a file with 3mm bleed on each side
– Envelopes should be supplied with a 1mm bleed.
– The textile elastic frames must be bled 15mm.
If you need more information, please consult our artwork instructions.
You can upload files in the following formats:
JPG, PDF, EPS, TIFF, PS (PostScript)
Make sure that your PDF file is saved directly from your graphics program in standard PDF/X format (PDF/X3 or PDF/X1a). To avoid problems with layers and transparencies during the printing process, it is recommended to use the “1.3 compatibility” setting when saving artworks.
If you are sending TIFF files, be sure to reduce the number of layers to one.
To avoid problems with color variation or printed image, please do not use pre-separated data from DCS EPS.

And this is how Print New York is making a difference:

Discover our incredible large format printing range
With over 20 years experience in print, we have the know-how and expertise to deliver cutting-edge large format printing projects including billboards, banners, window wraps and more!
Storescapes are multi-dimensional ads made composed of stores, walls, and barriers. Because they are at eye level, these windows and walls are ideal for leaving a lasting impact on clients, especially in crowded streets and retail malls. A Storescape is a billboard that appears directly before your eyes.
Wild Posting is a popular, low-cost, and effective guerilla marketing strategy used by the general public. Fly posting, also known as wild posting, is a terrific way to get the word out to passers-by about a forthcoming promotion, performance, or event. For wild-posting campaigns in NYC, we print wheatpaste posters the same day.
Window Clings & Adhesives
When you need a temporary sign for your business, Window Clings are ideal. These clings adhere to surfaces using static rather than glue, making them ideal for promoting limited-time discounts and bargains. They’re UV-resistant and water-resistant, and they’re built to last. We print high-resolution window clings up to 48″ tall and 159″ wide in bright colors.
One of the oldest and purest types of advertising is 8-Sheet poster printing. If you’re searching for a high-impact medium to reach your customers in high-traffic places like highways, walkways, bridges, and terminals, 8-sheet poster campaigns are the way to go. Our 8-sheet 5″x11″ posters are printed using cutting-edge digital printing equipment, providing exceptional quality at an affordable price!
Billboards & Spectaculars
Billboards are the most visible kind of advertising and have the biggest influence on any marketing strategy. To withstand the elements in the rain, hail, and sun, billboards require high-quality, all-weather materials. To produce the finest results, we utilize only the highest quality 13oz scrim vinyl and inks in our billboard goods.
COVID-19 Safety Posters
COVID-19 health and safety posters come in a variety of materials and substrates and are produced in large format. These full-color posters can be displayed in high-traffic places such as lobbies, break rooms, and entrances to help educate staff, customers, and visitors about company safety policies.
Giclée Art Prints
If you’re searching for a cost-effective way to decorate your office or home with art, giclée printing is the way to go. The use of digital inkjet printers to make large-scale fine art is referred to as giclée. These high-resolution reproductions are available as vinyl graphics or framed paper, and are ideal for use in galleries, museums, retail outlets, and even your own house.
Throughout New York and the United States, we provide high-quality mobile billboards for trucks and trailers. Because billboards are the most effective high-impact marketing technique available, mounting them on a mobile truck rather than paying for a fixed billboard place may save you money.
Our poster printing services cover a wide range of sizes for a variety of applications, including wheatpaste, movie, foil, and lenticular posters. We can meet any deadline and any unique size specifications you need for your posters.
