You know those spectacular streets banners that brighten up even the rainiest of morning commutes? You may have noticed our beautiful Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation banners in the spring, or even our colourful street banners throughout the West End… but have you ever wondered how they’re made?
Most of the street banners made in our Vancouver facility are made on our DuPont™ Artistri®2020 digital textile printer, but we call her ‘Betty’ for short.
We just celebrated a marvelous achievement! Betty officially produced over 100,000 metres of flags and banners! That’s nearly enough material to stretch from our Vancouver store to our Victoria Store!
We got Betty in 2008. At the time, she was the best digital printer on the market, and our Betty continues to live up to her reputation as a top-quality digital textile printer. The fact that all of our street banners have been printed through her leaves no doubt that Betty is one heck of a workhorse!
If you haven’t been lucky enough to lay your eyes on some of the banners that Betty has made, check out the photo gallery below! You won’t be disappointed!
Thanks for stopping by our blog!
Until next time,
Public Relations and Social Media Manager
