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.

Static Cling Decals

True static cling is a non-adhesive vinyl material that holds a static charge. It is typically used for glass and window applications where clean and completely residue-free removal is desirable. Static cling vinyl comes in clear or white and can be digitally or screen printed.

Inside window clings are printed on clear static vinyl. The image is printed in reverse and usually a white or colored ink layer is printed behing the graphics to make it more visable through the glass. The term 'inside' refers to the fact that such a decal is usually placed on the inside of a door window and so is protected from the elements.

For 'outside' graphics - most often used on interior surfaces - white static cling is used. For optimum performance, static cling should be applied to clean, degreased, non-porous surfaces only.

The term Static cling is sometimes mistakenly used for normal window decals that can be adhered with a layer of very lo-tac adhesive. That adhesive can be used in situations where the static charge may not be enough to hold the graphic in place and the decal eventually will need to be removed with no residue left on the surface.
