How To Maintain Your Vinyl Banners

 

Tips for Maintaining the Life of Your Vinyl Banners


Our 13 oz vinyl banners are meant to last 3-5 years when used outdoors and 7-10 years when used indoors. In order to get these lifespans, you will need to use proper hanging techniques. Vinyl banners are durable enough to withstand rain, snow, and other natural elements - but you will still need to take proper care of them. Here are some tips to get the most out of your vinyl banner.

 

Hanging your Banner

Vinyl banners are finished with heat-welded hems and grommets placed every 2-4 feet around the perimeter of the banner. You should use all the grommets provided to prevent your banner from tearing out or ripping. You can use bungee cords, hanging clips, ropes, and zip ties to help secure your banner. You can display your banner on the side of buildings, on a fence, or between poles.

If possible, you should avoid direct sunlight to prevent fading over time. You should also avoid high wind locations to prevent the wind from destroying your banner.

 

Cleaning your Banner

If your banner is exposed to the elements, it might require occasional cleaning. If you are going to wash your banner, use lukewarm water. You can add dish soap to the water. Avoid using abrasive cleaning materials like power washers and brushes. You should only use soft towels to avoid scratching the banner and ruining the prints.

 

Storing your Banner

When your banner is not being used, make sure that you roll the banner up. Keep the printed side out when you roll the banner to protect the inks. To prevent the banner from bending, you should keep the box it was shipped in and store it in there. You should also keep your banner out of extreme heat. Avoid windows or other direct sunlight to prevent the banner from fading.
