Indoor vs. Outdoor Banners
Whether a banner will work indoors or outdoors is really a question of material. Any of our banner materials are suitable for indoor use. These include 13oz scrim, 18oz blockout vinyl, 15oz super smooth, mesh banner material, and printable fabrics. Depending on the installation, location, and longevity required we can help specify the proper material to meet your needs. See more Banner materials
Grommets are the standard method of mounting a banner, but pole pockets are a great alternative for boulevard banners, parade banners, pole banners, street banners, and tradeshow banners. Pole banner hardware can be purchased separately. We recommend the spring-loaded poles because they increase the life of your banner because they are flexible in the wind. No banner is perfect, but with welded hems and spring-loaded poles, the banners last a lot longer. See test with spring-loaded poles on a windy day.
Gallery Wrapped Canvas
Canvas prints can be gallery wrapped on wooden stretcher bars for a custom wall hanging. Signs for Success offers design services to finish the print onto the wrapped edges, or add a complementary border color for the edges, or you can fade the image at the edges and leave white. Whether we use the VC canvas with it’s natural color, or the Picasso Canvas, with its brighter white, the Gallery Wrapped canvases look great. We add sawtooth hangers to the back for easy hanging.
Custom Printed Upholstery
Some wrapping of seat or stool cushions can be done here in Signs for Success production area, but for sewn motorcycle, restaurant booths, boat upholstery, vehicle seats, we have a couple of professional upholsterer’s numbers that we can suggest that have worked with our product here in Spokane. If you are from elsewhere, we can print and ship the printed fabric with plenty of spare for your upholsterer to first test sew, then put your material where you want it.
The industry standard for banner finishing is a 1″ hem with grommets approximately every 2 feet. We can add pole pockets, reinforcements, extra grommets, or specifically placed grommets to your custom banner.
Banner taping using double-sided banner tape to finish the edges is also an option; however, this is best for short-term use only.
A welded hem is the standard finishing method we use for banners because welded hems and welded pole pockets are strong, long-term, and outdoor-durable. Signs for Success has the only banner welder in Spokane.
“For us, it is a big investment, but it gives us a finished product that no one else in our market can produce,” owner John Bogensberger said about the WeldMaster. “Producing great color on digitally printed banners is the norm these days. Preserving the appearance and making it stronger at the same time gives us a distinct market advantage,” he added.
