Tips To Help Your Banner Last
- Loose roll your dry banner with the design inside- never fold your banner
- Clean with a soft, damp rag. No cleaners or scrub sponges.
- Keep away from solvents, paint thinner and alcohol.
How Do You Hang Outdoor Banners?
Grommets or Banner Tabs! Clients have a choice between embedded brass grommets, or adhesive tabs to make hanging easier. Brass grommets are placed around the perimeter of the banner in 2 foot increments and are an additional cost. Banner tabs are applied by you and are free.
How Many Grommets Do I Need?
If a small banner, 1 grommet in each corner is probably enough. We also offer grommets every 2 feet, which is better to longer banners or banners that might be exposed to wind and other forces.
Not Intended for Large Areas of Ink Coverage
Depending on the colour build, you may get some streakiness in large areas of solid coverage. We recommend a white background for best results.
Only 150DPI Is Required, so Go Big!
We recommend 150 DPI resolution images for large format printing, so you can go larger than you might expect. Also, if designed for viewing further away, lower resolution could work for your purposes. You can always request a 12" x 12" printed proof on the actual banner stock, so you can see the print quality prior to the job going into production.
