If you're a business man or woman or just an average Joe or Jane, you might have at one point in time looked into a banner. Banners are, as a rule, generally used as a sign. It's pretty simple. You slap some words up there, stick it where you want it, and voila! You've got a way of advertising your business without spending an arm or a leg…right? So let's take a look at everything you need to know about banners.




The thing is, people don't know all that much about banners. Sure, you may have seen them around favorite restaurant without really doing that much research on them. But why should you? After all, you don't need a banner…




But the fact is, banners can be used for much more than just businesses. They're great for parties, special events, anniversaries, birthday parties, and a plethora of other things. They're long lasting, compared to cardboard and poster board signs and a lot more durable than these other materials as well.




Let's take a look at everything you need to know about banners and what they are made of along with their pros and cons.




Banners are made of vinyl. You probably remember or have heard of vinyl records. Maybe you've seen one a few times in your lifetime. Vinyl is a very cheap, durable plastic resin. It is weatherproof. (Live in a rainy climate? You're covered. Snowy climate? You're still good to go.) Vinyl also doesn't melt under a temperature of 200. Unless you leave it on a running engine for hours on end or over a fire for an hour, it should be fine in regular or even slightly high heat.




Now Onto The Pros and Cons Of Banners:





  1. Long-lasting. If you're looking for a long lasting sign for your business, you can't go wrong with banners. They can last five or more years under the right conditions. That's just for outdoor signs-indoor signs would last even longer.



  1. UV treated ink. If your banner is outside for a long time, it won't fade or get paler as far as images or font is concerned.



  1. Grommets. If you want to hang up your banner, you can ask for grommets to be installed so that you are able to do so.




  1. Long lasting. Maybe you don't want something that will last a long time. In this case, all that you have to do is simply purchase a banner in a style that will allow for reuse. Say that you were throwing a birthday party-you don't HAVE to say the age of the person on the banner. Just a simple happy birthday or bon anniversaire or feliz cumpleanos will do!
