Vinyl Banners: Finishing Options for Custom Banners
The standard finish for vinyl banners is heat-welded hems and grommets. You can also have the banner cut to size, have just hems or have grommets only. Pole pockets, reinforced corners, and reinforced hems are also finishing options available for vinyl banners.
Heat Welded Hems & Grommets:
Hems consist of one inch of the vinyl banner material folded over to the backside of the banner and heated together to form a clean and strong one-inch hem. We recommend having hems for all banners to increase the strength and durability of the banner.
Grommets are about 1/2 inches in diameter and are made of #2 brass. They are placed every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter and are used to help hang the banner. We recommend using all of the grommets provided when you hang your banner to prevent the banner from tearing or ripping.
The combination of hems and grommets prevent the banner from ripping and tearing. You can hang your banner using ropes, ball bungees or hanging clips.
Reinforced hems are a 1 3/16" PVC coated webbing which increases the strength of the banner. The vinyl banner is cut to size and the reinforcements are heat welded to the backside of the banner. You can not have reinforced hems with pole pockets.
We recommend having reinforced hems and reinforced corners on banners over 32 square feet that will be used outdoors or if the banner will be used in a high-wind environment.
When you are ordering your vinyl banners, you will be able to select the finishing options. As you select the finishing option you will see the price change.
