When you are busy planning an event or launching a new business, it is easy to forget some of the small details that go into high-quality advertising materials. Banners are now and have always been one of the most effective physical advertising tools. Unlike digital media, however, this type of signage is subject to serious wear and tear over time.

One of the best ways to preserve these materials is to have your banners hemmed. Our team at Banner Ups has explained how to hem banners and why you should always have it done before using your signs.

Reasons to Have Your Banners Hemmed

  • Longevity

A well-made sign can benefit your business for many years if it is kept in good condition. When a banner is hemmed, it is reinforced with an additional layer of material to ensure it is strong enough to prevent tearing or bending. In addition to this, the more use you get out of your signage, the fewer materials you will waste in the process.

At Banner Ups, we are strong believers in sustainable advertising, which is one of the reasons why we encourage our clients to use their banners for as long as possible.

  • Avoid grommets

Hemmed banners offer more durability than just using grommets alone. Grommets are circular metal attachments that are normally punched through the fabric to create openings for a cable to be woven through. With easy-to-use products like our hem tapes, you can simply punch holes directly through the banners and our adhesive tabs to create super-strong banners.

  • Protect your signs from the weather

Banners are frequently used in outdoor trade shows, markets, and other open-air events. These signs are sure to stand out in a crowd and catch the eye of passersby no matter where you are. However, if your banners fall victim to poor weather conditions, they may wind up looking distressed and bent out of shape. Adding this extra layer of protection will keep your banners looking pristine even in the worst weather conditions.
