Popular Banner Finishes

Banners are a classic way to get an audience’s attention. With numerous material, finishing, layout, and format options, they are also a highly customizable form of advertising. Because of the various finishing options, however, it is important to consider exactly how and where your client will use their banner. This article from Sign & Digital Graphics presents a good overview of some of the most popular banner finishes. Here are some of the finishing options Tex Visions offers:

 

Simple Sides For a clean and simple look, your client can choose to have their banner finished with cut or hemmed sides. Other finishing options such as grommets may be added to this if desired, but they aren’t necessary for display.

 

Aluminum Profile

Pole Sleeve Your client’s banner can also be finished with pole sleeves, which are used to accommodate hanging components like a wooden dowel and polyester cord. This option is ideal for a hanging banner that can be moved or taken down quickly and easily with no tools required. Pole sleeves can be made to any desired size, depending on the hanging component chosen. The size of the sleeve is measured by the size it is when laid flat. Pole sleeves are usually hemmed, whether fabric or vinyl material is used. Vinyl can also be welded upon request.

 

Grommets Grommets are one of the most common finishing options for banners. They are versatile and provide your client with a wide range of mounting options. We offer grommets in brass and nickel. They come in one standard size and can be used with plastic disc reinforcements, depending on the fabric’s structure.

 

Aluminum Profiles For a more attractive look, choose one of our aluminum profiles. We offer a snap profile constructed of an aluminum spring loaded snap closure at the top and bottom of the print. Our keder profile is constructed of an aluminum frame that attaches to the print using the keder sewn into the print’s pole sleeves. The snap profile features a banner with cut sides so it lays flat and secures well in the profile. It can be hung with suctions cups or any other wall hanging component. The keder profile comes in three different diameters and uses hooks for hanging.

 

Outdoor Finishes Is your client using their banner outdoors? We offer finishing options specifically for outdoor settings. Your client can have the sides of their fabric banner backed with header tape for extra strength and use multiple grommets, D-rings, snap hooks, loops, or polyester cord for mounting. Although vinyl banners can be used outdoors, we recommend fabric because it allows wind to pass through, will not crack, and doesn’t need to be double-sided to see an image on both sides.
