PVC Banners are one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to promote your business. This can however be destroyed and detract from the intended message if your PVC banner looks old and tatty.
Newstyle Print only make PVC banners out of durable long lasting vinyl that is tested to successfully stand up against rain, wind and any other wonderful weather the British Isles can throw them. Obviously we’re not talking wind speeds like we saw in 1987 – even the weather people couldn’t foresee those!
Whatever you need your PVC banner for, whether that be indoor or outdoor use, we have put together some useful tips on how to hang your banner and keep it well maintained to last as long as possible.
If you want to hang your PVC banner outside, it is important to use the correct materials for the job. Zip ties are the most common form of fastening for banners, but you must ensure that you use heavy duty ties otherwise your banner may end up in the next county!
A good outside place to hang a PVC banner is on a fence. For this you can use the above mentioned cable/zip ties or bungee cords. Bungee cords allow for more give when it’s windy reducing the risk of a tear. If the wind isn’t an issue, suction cups may also be used for a shop window. As most PVC banners come with eyelets, they can also be screwed onto wooden boards using a washer and blot.
When you’re hanging your PVC banner in doors it goes without saying that the weather is no longer is a factor. You can hang these where ever you like using cable ties or they can be screwed to a wall etc.
We would actually recommend that you use a roller banner for indoor use, more than a PVC banner. Roller banners stand independently and work really well in an indoor environment. They are commonly used at tradeshows and other events. Easy to assemble and dismantle, roller banners compliment any product display, and more importantly, can be reused time and time again.
If you look after your PVC banner or roller banner it will last a lot longer than you think. Make sure you keep the box or tube we send with it, as you can use this for storing the banner when you have finished with it. Then should you need it again, it will be protected and ready for action.
Be sure when rolling up for banner that you have the print facing outwards, and never fold the banner.
Heat and light are an issue when storing PVC banners e.g in a car or by a window. Try and avoid string your banner anyway that will be exposed to high heat or light levels.
To remove any marks or dirt from your PVC banner, simply use warm water and preferably a soft cloth. Never brush or use an abrasive pad to remove marks as you risk removing the finish of the banner.
If you follow these tips then this should extend the life of any of the banners we supply you and save you money in the long-term.
