Banner Care

Some banners are inexpensive items purchased for a 1 time special event, meant to be discarded after a week or two.

In other instances, they represent a significant investment that will be used over and over again. In that case, it pays to know how to care for your investment. Banners last longer when properly stored. That means rolled up, either around a cardboard core and/or rolled and put into a canvas storage case. Folding can sometimes cause creases that over time will show up when the banner is hung. Canvas storage bags are available and help keep the ropes and banner from slipping apart when storing and handling.

If the banner has been laminated with a protective clear coat, then the laminate side should always be rolled to the outside to prevent tunneling.

Consider your storage facility. It needn't be elaborate, but it shouldn't be subject to extreme temperature variations either.

Thermal Die Cutting
Thermal die cutting is strictly a kiss cut or surface cut process. Thermal dies are typically made of magnesium. The die is heated and then brought into close proximity with the substrate. By controlling the temperature and dwell time the vinyl “splits” where the thermal die rules come closest to the substrate. Thermal die cutting is typically used with vinyl decals and labels.
