Vinyl combines the affordability of photo paper with the durability of metal and acrylic prints, making it the most popular option for extra-large prints. Vinyl prints can be used indoors or outdoors, and come with a variety of hanging options so they can be used for almost any signage application.
What Are The Finishing Options For Vinyl Signage?
Depending on your application you may want different finishing options to make it easier to hang or display your vinyl sign. Options include:
Grommets – Perfect for hanging your sign with a string tied through the metal grommet holes in the corner.
Hemming – Folds the edges of the banner back on itself to add an extra stiffness to the edge – can use tape or thread for sewn edges.
Pole Pockets – Similar to hemming but with a larger fold to create a space for a pole to slide through.
You can also choose no finishing options and opt for an adhesive back for car wraps, wallpaper, and window clings.
