Custom Rope Banners
Custom banners finished with roping already hemmed into the top and bottom horizontal edging provides for one of the most durable banners one can purchase. This is because the banner's entire weight is being uniformly supported by the sewn in rope opposed to the vinyl hemmed edges and individual grommet hole points of contact solely acting as support.
Ropes inserted into the top and bottom hems of banners are also less likely to sag or severely drape down from the ends because the roping can be tautly tied between two endpoints without the fear of stretching the banner. While providing an exceptional straight across presentation without sagging combined with the peace of mind that your banner is far less likely to stretch or tear, rope banners provide a better and more secure product for hanging over crowds and traffic.
We offer our rope insert banners in both 13 ounce and 18 ounce vinyl. We recommend our 13 ounce vinyl for single sided printing applications and our 18 ounce for double sided banner prints due to its see thru blockout layer.
We print these banners no differently than we print our other banner products, but the finishing is much different. While we finish these banners, we securely hem strong nylon roping into the top, and if requested, bottom hemming across the entire banner's horizontal edge. So when your banner is shipped, the roping is already secured to provide you with a very quick installation. Simply remove your banner at the preferred location where you intend to install your banner and tie off the banner's top edge roping first making sure the roping is level and tautly secured. Once the top rope is fastened, use the provided sewn in rope in the banner's bottom edge to prevent any unnecessary flapping. Try not to angel your rope downward too much while securing the bottom edge of your banner to prevent potential stretching, but providing some downward tension will help keep your banner taut
Banners are completely odor free, dry, water & UV proof, with no tack, and smooth to the touch

The Perfect Over Hanging Display
We use standard 13oz vinyl for printing with sen in roping during finishing to provide a visually stunning matte finished taut banner that produces excellent image quality with no reflections or glare even in brightly lit indoor or in outdoor locations.
18 oz Blockout Vinyl
18oz vinyl is for the person who wants to overhang a double sided print presentation for traffic passing in all directions. Constructed of 3 layers, including a middle blockout layer, 18oz banners are truly heavy duty, non transparent, and completely blocks light to stop ghosting effects.
Inserting Rope While Hemming
Durable hemming is heat welded while inserting the roping to the top and optional bottom edging of your banner.
In order to prevent fraying and extend lifespan, we heat weld the edges of each banner around the ropes to ensure the rope pockets do not come loose. We never use hemming tape or other hemming procedures that sacrifice durability.
