Proper Installation and Care

There are several different ways to install a banner, and they are all fairly simple.

Your banner can come with grommets or pole pockets, or even both. Grommets come in handy when you’re looking to use rope, cords, strings, hooks or bungees, zip ties or even nails to hang your banner on a wall or any other flat surface, or even attach the banner to a pole, or a fence.

Pole pockets are typically made for poles to be run through the banner – vertically or horizontally, therefore they come in several different sizes to fit poles of different thickness. However, pole pockets can also be used for rope to be run through. Whichever option that you select, it won’t break you a sweat. 

In between the uses of your banner, you should regularly clean it with warm water and allow to air dry before storage. Don’t worry, the water will not ruin the ink, as the ink is waterproof. Just make sure not to scrub too hard or use any harsh cloths on the banner, and certainly not keep any sharp objects next to it to prevent accidental cuts or scrapes. Once your banner is clean and you wish to store it, we recommend that you carefully roll it instead of folding it, and keep it at a dry area, not too hot and not too cold. If you could place the rolled banner in a tall box, or a carrying bag, that would be preferable. However, if the banner is too large to be rolled, you may fold it, but try not to place anything too heavy ontop of the folded banner. 

When you are ready to use your banner again, especially if it was stored folded, you might notice some creases. Do not worry, as the creases (or wrinkles) should be easily straightened when a light heat is applied to the banner, and the banner is laid or hung flat. You could use a blow-dryer (at a light setting, and not too close to the banner), or simply hang it outside having it exposed to the sun, and the heat of the sun will do its magic. 


We hope that you found this article helpful, and do not stress – your banner will last you a long time with proper care and installation!
