How Long Will Our Banners Last?

This depends on how well the banner is installed. Banners that are installed properly and maintained will have the greatest success of longevity. Banners must be installed taut on a bracket system. If banners are bowing from wind, they will wear out faster. Wear shows by creases in the banners, tearing at the grommets, ink cracking.
