Fabric Banner Uses – Signage 101

Beautifully printed fabric banners really can make a statement. Because of their relatively inexpensive cost (compared to other sign types), fabric banners have many uses. We’ve compiled a list here, but these are nowhere near all the amazing things you can do with this versatile product. Take a look at just a few of our favorite ways to showcase these beautiful signs.

ABOUT OUR CUSTOM FABRIC BANNERS

Our fabric banners are printed using a 100% polyester fabric. The fabric is washable and wrinkle free. Fabric banners are great options for indoor signage displays. The tightness of the weave allows for beautiful print quality with an estimated lifespan of one year. Because our fabric banners can come with pole pockets or grommets, you can easily install them using poles, zip ties, rope, bungee, or curtain rods. Care is also a breeze. Simply machine wash and hang dry your banner when it needs a cleaning. If you need to store your banner, fold it carefully and store in a cool, dry place. Be sure that your banner is completely dry before storing it. If not, mold and mildew can grow on the fabric.

Fabric banners should not be exposed to the elements and are recommended for indoor signage or for short term outdoor use. Direct sunlight can damage the color and excess exposure to water can damage the woven fibers of the banner.

 

 

USING FABRIC BANNERS FOR BUSINESSES – Sales, Promotions, Trade Shows

Few things look more elegant hanging in a storefront window than a fabric banner. Many business owners choose to advertise sales, explain services, or display product photos using fabric banners.
