Oh my goodness. Graduations are over, the sun is shining, and I just bought a new bottle of sunscreen. You know what that means? Yup, it’s gonna be sun-shiney summertime after all.
We’ve got the beach, the trails, the fair, the backyard BBQ, and some outdoor concerts on my to-do list this summer. With all this wind and sun picking up, there’s still plenty of opportunities to advertise. But you better put down that poster and puffy paint, mister, ‘cause that ain’t gonna fly in this weather!
I know we’ve rattled on about outdoor banners before, but today I wanted to highlight a little tidbit that you may not have known about: FREE FEATURES.
That’s right...free stuff. Such as grommets, wind slits, and pole pockets.
And what are these magical features? Well, let me give you the lowdown.
At each corner of the banner (or throughout, depending on the size...), a hole is punched through and reinforced with a metal ring. With these, you can thread string, rope, etc. through the holes in order to hang the banner. It’s pretty easy of an applicator, and if you’re thinking of hanging something from a wall or outside your window, grommets would be the way to go.
For high-flying banners, another thing that’s a helpful feature, besides the grommets, are wind slits! These are exactly what they sound like: light slits carved into the banner, but don’t interrupt the design or make the art look all slashed. These slits around for better air flow, so your banner doesn’t get too pocketed with air and blows right off it’s supports!
Where I live, we get quite a few gusty days, so unless you want your banner to fly off like Winnie the Pooh on his balloon, strap it down with some grommets and wind slits.
Exactly what it sounds like. These pockets are made for using PVC, or other kind of piping, to display your banner rather than hanging it. These are good for outdoor affairs, such as weddings, family reunions, summer fairs, or soccer games.
So there you have it! These are three FREE features that we can add to any Outdoor Vinyl Banner that you order. Just make sure to add them during the checkout process, and you’re good. Now, go out and enjoy the summer!
