Enter the length and width of the banner and select the type of vinyl to determine the total vinyl banner weight.

Vinyl Banner Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a Vinyl Banner Weight.

VBW = L*W * DF

  • Where VBW is the Vinyl Banner Weight (lbs)
  • L is the length of the banner (ft)
  • W is the width of the banner (ft)
  • DF is the density factor of the vinyl
    • .083 for 90/10 vinyl
    • .065 for 70/30 vinyl
    • .028 for 30/80 vinyl

To calculate the weight of a vinyl banner, multiply the length and width by the density factor.

What is the weight of a vinyl banner?

The total weight of a vinyl banner depends on the overall size of the banner, and the type of vinyl used to make it.

How to calculate Vinyl Banner Weight?

Example Problem:

The following example outlines how to calculate a Vinyl Banner Weight.

First, determine the length of the banner. In this example, the length is measured to be 10 ft.

Next, determine the width of the banner. This banner’s width is 4 ft.

Next, determine the type of vinyl used. For this banner, we used 70/30 vinyl mesh. This is a .065 density factor.

Finally, calculate the Vinyl Banner Weight using the formula above:

VBW = L*W * DF

VBW = 10*4 * .065

VBW = 2.6lbs
