Choosing the Right Type of Post-Mounted Banner
An upright banner stretched between two posts can be damaged by wind and weather, so it's important to choose the right type for where and how it's used. We have two purpose-designed types that are suited for windy conditions:
Grommets and hems
8oz perforated vinyl mesh banners
These banners are printed on a special mesh material that allows wind and turbulent air to pass through micro-perforated holes across the entire banner surface. This option includes sturdy hemming on four sides and grommets installed every 24” at no extra cost.
18oz heavy vinyl wind-slit banners
Half moon-shaped cutouts across the entire banner surface allow airflow that minimizes the chance of tearing in wind. This option includes sturdy hemming on four sides and grommets installed every 12” at no extra cost.
Our post-mounted banners include hemmed edges on all four sides with metal grommets, to allow for proper post installation. Unless your banner is properly hemmed and grommeted, chances are it will not last very long stretched between the poles.
The best installation method for long-term outdoor use is to use bungee cords to stretch your banner between two posts. Set your posts in the ground at least two feet (or more) wider than the banner and attach it on all four corners to the posts, through the grommeted holes. We recommend mid-duty expandable 8-12” bungee cords. This will allow for additional flexibility and relieve the stress from wind and airflow.
