Vinyl Banners Can Be Indoor Banners Or Outdoor Banners.
The use of the banner will dictate the banner materials, banner printing methodand banner finishes. Regardless of whether it is an indoor banner or an outdoor banner, safety is paramount when determining the construction as well as the manner of displaying the banner.
Outside banners are subject to different conditions than inside banners may be. Exposure to the elements, wind, rain, sun can all take a toll on the printing and the materials. It’s important to evaluate the structure the banner will be hung from. Especially if there are significant wind loads, its critical to know that the banner will be secured properly.
New innovations in printing enable us to create bold, full color banners with photographic images fully reproduced. These colorful banners can be used as street banners or event banners, sponsorship banners or sale banners. Colors are fade resistant, these vinyl banners are rip resistant banners.
Banner mounted against a building:
Style A, Hem side edges with grommets top and bottom as needed, (number of grommets depends on banner size). Gold grommets are used.Most common finishing, useful for a variety of applications. Best for mounting against a wall or fence.
Banner mounted between two poles:
Style B, Hem edges with grommets top and bottom as needed, with rope seamed into the top and bottom hems, rope ends extend out from the banner edge making ties, length can be specified. This adds versatility and strength to the basic grommet style, allowing the banner to be tied between poles or other secure fixtures.
Banner tied between secure fixtures:
Style C, Hem edges with rope seamed into the top and bottom hems. Rope extends from banner making ties, length can be specified. For banners tied between secure fixtures, this is a strong construction, it spreads wind forces over the length of the banner.
Banners for high wind situations:
Style D, Hem sides with webbing seamed into top and bottom, webbing extends as needed for ties. This is an even stronger construction for banners that may be subjected to higher wind.
Style E, Hems sides, webbing top and bottom with grommets spaced as needed (depends on banner size). Adding grommets offers more tie down points, this is especially helpful to support larger banners to eliminate sagging, if the supporting structure will allow for it
Banners on hardware:
Styles F, To support banners on hardware, sleeves can be sewn into the top and bottom, The sleeve can be sized to fit the hardware, The circumference (dia. X 3.14) of the supporting pole, divided by 2 plus an inch will calculate a good sleeve size.
Banners extended above or below the sleeve:
Style G, Grommets can be added to the top and bottom in an extra extension above and below the sleeves for more versatility in display options.
Two banners sewn back to back:
Style H, Street, or light pole banners are usually finished with sleeves top and bottom with a grommet just below the top sleeve and just above the bottom sleeve. In this case two banners are sewn back to back for extra heavy duty.
Style I, For a very strong construction which will be attached using ties you supply, seamed in webbing with “D” rings offers a very reliable solution. For large banners, needing more tie points, grommets can be added to the top and bottom, or even sides.
