FINISHING RECOMMENDATIONS
Installation:
Improper installation can cause premature banner failure. It is recommended that a professional installer be used.

Tape Hem:
Standard, high-tack banner tape can be used under the guidelines of the tape manufacturer.

Stitched Hem:
It is recommended that unlaminated banners be stitched hem side up so that the sewing machine foot comes in contact with only the backside of the banner. A double-stitched hem with a maximum of five stitches per inch is recommended.

Grommeting:
Grommets should be placed in the hemline along the length of the banner so that the grommet is through two layers. Corner grommets should be placed where the length and width hems cross so that the grommet is through four layers. A reinforced corner is also recommended to increase durability.

Laminating:
To give added surface protection, either a vinyl, pressure-sensitive overlaminate or an acrylic liquid coating is recommended.

Signage
Handles well in all types of posting situations. Standard starch-based pastes may be used. Also recommended is Shur-Stik Ultra Billboard Adhesive Product #8750.

Wall/Murals
Standard pastes such as Henkel Metylan Cellulose Wallpaper Paste provide adequate adhesion and allow for easier stripping when the wallcovering is to be removed or replaced. Mixing instructions for most standard wallpaper pastes include water measures for both high yield and high tack concentrations. The lower water measure is recommended for this product. Heavy duty pastes such as Supron Supro Clear 34, Golden Harvest 1st Choice GH34, and Rowan Professional Heavy Duty Clear PRO 838 come premixed, have a more aggressive adhesive, and are recommended for more permanent applications.
