Installation & Product Care FAQs
How do I Install my banner?
Hems and grommets or pole pockets can be added to your vinyl banner. We recommend placing ball bungees on ALL grommets provided if you select hems and grommets. This will spread the tension uniformly, resulting in a banner that is as clean and wrinkle-free as possible.
Our pole pockets are another way to hang your new banner. There will be no increase in the end size of your banner if pole pockets are chosen. Pole pockets come in three sizes: 2", 3", and 4". When choosing pole pockets, we don't recommend placing any text or images within 3 inches of the banner's edge.
Pole Pocket Finishing Options
- 2" Pole Pockets - fits a pole 3/4" in diameter
- 3" Pole Pockets - fits a pole 1 1/4" in diameter
- 4" Pole Pockets - fits a pole 1 1/2" in diameter
Our How to Hang Banners blog article, and our YouTube Video can also show you how to do this.
How do I properly store my banner?
When your custom holiday 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.
How do I remove wrinkles from my standard size banners?
After receiving your vinyl banner, you may notice it has some creases or wrinkles. This is due to it being rolled up and stored for shipping. If you wish to get rid of these unsightly wrinkles from your custom vinyl banner, we recommend two options.
Option one: Unroll your vinyl banners and place them in the hot sun for a few hours. The wrinkles should come out.
Option two: We recommend using a clothing steamer with a refillable water tank.
Use the steamer much like you would with a piece of clothing and this steamer should take the wrinkles right out! We recommend using a clothing steamer with a refillable water tank.

Will these custom banners work for trade shows?
Yes, they will work well indoors at trade shows and other events. They’re printed in full CMYK color, so images and messaging will look great and grab attention.
Are they wind resistant banners?
In a light breeze or small gust, yes they should work fine. If you need a banner for a super windy location, then try our mesh vinyl material. Mesh is designed to allow air-flow through the material to prevent tearing.
Are banners easy to clean?
Yes. If your banner succumbs to the elements or gets dirty, then just get some lukewarm water and a cloth to wipe it off. You can also add soap, but avoid using harsh chemicals.
