FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How durable are your standard regular banners?
These banners utilize a 13 oz. vinyl banner material that is very durable for indoor and outdoor installations. When hung indoors, this banner will last a lifetime. When used outdoors these banners are best suited for about 3 months under normal weather conditions.
Does this banner have stitched hems? Does a banner need hems?
Our regular banners come with a straight cut edge. We print directly onto the material and trim it to size. This non-fray vinyl material doesn't require any stitching and has a nice and clean finish. Hems are usually stitched when the banner material can't be cut to shape without fraying. Hems can add a bit more stability around the edges of the banner, but are not necessary for a banner to be durable. If you are interested in ordering a stitched banner, please see our over-sized digital banner section, for details and pricing.
What are grommets? Does my banner need them?
Grommets are the tiny brass eyelets that we place into our banners for hanging. The grommets create a contained hole in the banner to hang it from fences, poles, walls, etc.) Our standard banners come with 4 grommets in the corner, but can be ordered without grommets, if need be. Most people hang their banners and need the grommets for installation though.
What is the difference between the standard banner and the standard rugged banner?
Both banners are great for both indoor and outdoor use. We recommend the standard banner for interior installations and limited outdoor use. While our standard rugged banner is more suited for outdoor use. These banners also have one other slight difference...their finish. Standard banners have a glossy look, giving your graphics more pop! Standard rugged banners have a matte finish, which helps reduce glare in brightly lit areas.
Is the banner reusable?
All our banners are reusable if store properly when not in use. To store, simply roll your banner up, and place it into the box it was shipped in or in some sort of protective tube. Never ever fold your banner. Folding a banner will cause permanent creasing and could destroy the look of your banner.
