5 What is the difference between mesh banner and vinyl banner?
Mesh banners have small holes throughout the entire banner. This allows wind to pass through. Vinyl has no holes and because of this will catch the wind and potentially tear down if not properly secured.
6 Is this banner able to be put on posts to display in a grassy area where it can't be ziptied to an existing structure?
Yes, this is a fine way to hang a banner. We also recommend using bungees or rope as options to hang your banners.

No. We do not recommend wind slits on banners.
