- Are vinyl banners suitable for outdoor use?
Yes, our vinyl banners are perfectly suitable for both indoor and outdoor display. They are a great option for promotional advertising, marketing campaigns, backdrops for outdoor photo shoots, parades, and much more!
We do not recommend using vinyl banners in extreme weather such as high winds. This may cause your banner to tear. We recommend taking down your sign in the event of extreme weather conditions.
- Are your vinyl banners available in different weights?
Yes, they are available in two scrim vinyl options. Both of these materials options are suitable as indoor and outdoor banners.
- 13-oz. vinyl (Glossy or Matte)
- 18-oz. extra heavy-duty vinyl (Matte)
- What are the differences between your 13-oz. and the 18-oz. vinyl banner material options?
The main difference between the two vinyl material choices comes down to their weight. 13-oz. vinyl is thinner and lighter than 18-oz. vinyl. But both materials offer excellent durability and print quality.
Another distinction between the two is their max print size. Our 13-oz. banners can be printed seamlessly up to 16’ x 50’. While our 18-oz. vinyl banners have a max print width of 8’ x 50’.

Yes, they can be, the most common way to recycle them is by upcycling them.

We recommend reaching out to them prior to putting them in your recycling bin.
- Do you offer banners with wind slits?
No! We do not sell or recommend banners with wind slits. We have found them to be ineffective against high winds. They ultimately lead to decreasing the durability and longevity of the vinyl banner.

- Will pole pockets add to the finished size of my banner?
When selecting pole pockets, there will be no increase in the finished size of your vinyl banner. Pole pockets can either be 2”, 3”, or 4”. We don’t recommend having any text or images within 3 inches of the edge of the banner where you select to have your pole pockets.
- How to hang a banner?
Hems and grommets, as well as pole pockets, can be added to your vinyl banner. We recommend using ball bungees on ALL grommets provided if you choose the hems and grommets option. This will equally distribute the pressure, resulting in a clean and wrinkle-free banner.
Our pole pockets are another method for hanging. There will be no increase in the finished size of your banner if you choose pole pockets. Pole pockets can be 2", 3", or 4". When using 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

- How do I properly store my vinyl banner?
When your custom vinyl 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 clean my banner?
Your vinyl banner might require occasional cleaning. If you are going to wash your vinyl 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.
- How do I remove wrinkles from my vinyl banner?
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.
The first and least hands-on approach is to simply unroll your vinyl banners and place them in the hot sun for a few hours and the wrinkles should come out.
The second option is more of a hands-on approach, and we recommend using a clothing steamer with a refillable water tank. Simply just use the steamer much like you would with a piece of clothing and this steamer should take the wrinkles right out!
