A little extra effort and care will help your banner last much longer. To clean a dirty vinyl banner, avoid using any chemical cleaning solutions - many chemicals will remove the ink. Water, mild soap, and a non-scratch cloth will work most of the time.
Don't throw away your shipping box when you receive your banner. Use it to store and protect your banner when not in use. When possible, always roll your banners up with the ink facing inward and store them in the box they arrived in. Keep the banners in a cool, dry place, and store the box vertically if possible. This will help keep the banners in their rolled position, preventing any creases that could occur by storing them on their sides. If you must fold, try to avoid ink-on-ink contact when folding your banners to avoid unwanted ink transfer. Never store your banner folded over with ink touching ink.

When hanging your vinyl banners outside, it's important to use the right materials. If using tie straps, make sure they are heavy duty. Bungees are also useful in windy places, as the corners of the sign will be less likely to tear. If wind is a big concern, we strongly recommend reinforced webbing around the perimeter to reinforce the mounting area where grommets are placed. Street banners require extra special mounting specifications, please download our
