Banner details - the finishing touches

Need to order some vinyl banners to promote your upcoming event or advertise your company's products but need some direction on what finishing touches to add on them?  Not to worry, Banner4Sale has some finishing details for your banner that will make the ordering process easier, your banner will look better and hanging process more simple.

Lets take a look at some finishing touches that Banner4Sale offers - Trimmed edge vs. Hemmed edge.  This would vary based on how you are displaying your event banner.

What specifically is the difference between a trimmed edge and hemmed edge and why would I want one style over the other?

  • A trimmed edge is a raw-cut edge with no finishing. Some people prefer this look for their photo back drop banners and other hanging banner styles.
  • A hemmed edge is a double stitched sewn edge. The material is folded over about an inch and then sewn. This adds durability to the edge when we add metal grommets. We use a hemmed edge on all double-sided banners because we actually sew two banners together and using our hem machines is the only way to do that.
  • A seamed edge is the same as a hemmed edge in that the edge of the material is folded over about an inch and pressed together. The main difference here is that a seamed edge is actually welded together and it is super clean looking. A seamed edge is the cleanest and most durable finishing possible for Banner4Sale.

Grommets or No Grommets? - Is this standard or is there a fee?

  • Metal grommets are a metal ring that is added to the edges of the vinyl banner for easy hanging ability.
  • Standard grommet placement is every two feet, however, you can place them wherever you need them...corners, top or bottom, you tell us and we will take care of it for you.
  • Standard color grommets are silver, however, you can special order black or white if you wish (these will be slightly different in the cost).  Talk to a customer service rep for these lovely rings if you wish to add black or white grommets.
