What Are Banners?
Feather Flag Banner, Retractable Banner, and Fabric Banner
Banners are one of the world’s most long-standing and versatile signage solutions. With banners you get the high visibility of large structural signage at a much lower price point. Because banners are fabric or vinyl based, they pack down for easy storage and transportation when needed. There are many applications for banners to be used both indoors and outdoors. Banners come in many forms and sizes, from the highly popular vinyl banners to banner flags and banner stands.
Outdoor banners include vinyl banners, mesh banners, pole banners, break-away banners and fence banners, as well as all of our flag banners. All banners can be used indoors, but the most common banners used indoors include fabric banners, vinyl banners, retractable banners, step & repeat banners , X banners and table top retractable banners.
Common Uses: Banners are versatile signs that can be used indoors and outdoors depending on the type and conditions in which the banner will be used. Banners are most frequently hung from buildings/structures, strung up between posts or attached to fences. Banners are mainly used by businesses and organizations large and small to promote sales, announce events and hire new talent. They also work great as branding and logo signage. Banners are also good for personal use for private events such as birthday parties or welcome home events for military personnel.
Installation: Banners are simple to display and do not require professional installation. Vinyl, fabric, and mesh banners all include grommets at no extra charge, which makes hanging or mounting them much more simple. In many cases, all it takes to set up your banner is a rope or bungee cord and somewhere to hang it. For banner stands or flag banners, there is some assembly required for the pole system to support the banner, but the setup takes less than 5 minutes and is easy to do.
Care: Proper care for your banners will keep them looking clean and new for a long time. Banners are durable and are built to last for years when cared for correctly. In most cases a simple spot cleaning with a non-abrasive cloth and water will restore your banner. For fabric banners and banner flags, you may machine wash the banners as needed, but do not machine dry or iron the banners.
