When you think of a banner, the first thing that comes to mind is generally the simplest form of the product – a simple vinyl or fabric sign hanging from ropes or being held up at a sporting events. In reality, however, the world of banners encompasses so much more – from retractable banners to simple hanging banners, this form of signage ranges from basic to sophisticated, and can be used in a variety of situations.
The most common of the four banner styles, but not necessarily the simplest to hang. While your first impulse may be to tie off the corners of your new banner with rope, this should really only be used as a last resort. Instead, opt for zip ties or bungee cords, which are much more stable and put less stress on the grommet holes, particularly in areas with high winds.
However, if rope is your only option, be sure to weave it through the grommet holes on top and bottom to keep it nice and even and prevent the banner from folding in on itself.
