Easy Setup Means Easy Eyeballs For Your Plastic Roll Banners

Stage Banners featuring Vitamin Water
The Movement Festival was held in Hart Plaza in downtown Detroit May 28-30 this year. The fest was a sight to behold with a record attendance number of 99,282 people, five different stages, and a lineup that included over 100 DJs from around the world. Over the course of three days I saw everyone from the very young to the very old flock to the stages enjoy a wide variety of live techno performances. Just within the crowd there were dance circles galore—hip hop, break dancing, gloving, hula hooping, glow sticks, people busting out the quirkiest moves in their repertoire—which made ‘Movement Festival’ a fitting name.

Mesh Banner featuring Vitamin WaterThe other thing that caught my eye, of course, were the 10ft by 35ft vinyl mesh stage scrims NorthCoast made for the Vitamin Water stage. This year the banners included a QR code that, when scanned by a smartphone, took users to the Vitamin Water website on the free wireless internet available at the fest.

I also saw some vinyl mesh banners on the fence outside that NorthCoast made for another Movement Festival sponsor, the Detroit Metro Times.

Adhesive Grommets Example 1
To use, simply peel off the backing.

Adhesive grommets are a fast and easy tool for hanging your banners in any situation. Here at NorthCoast Banners we include adhesive grommets with all vinyl roll banners, but you can get them with your plastic roll banners too.

Adhesive grommets are for indoor or outdoor use and can withstand winds of up to 90 mph (although you’ll probably want to take your banner down anyway if it’s that windy). Grommets are either clear or white.

An Education in Perforation of Plastic Roll Banners

perforation

When it comes to plastic roll banners, perforations mean options.

Perforations (a line of small punctures that allow you to easily tear and separate your images from one another) can give you an infinite amount more control over your banner’s use, both before, during and after your event. The capability to separate your banner means that you can pass out your logo or image to fans, crew members or guests as gifts or souvenirs.  You can also change the length of your banner on a whim or separate the images for individual use.

Perforated BannerOn the other hand, the lack of perforation on your banner could result in jagged, ragged, and uneven banner divisions. An un-perforated banner could also necessitate the need to bring scissors or knives with you to your event, which is both inconvenient as well as dangerous. Furthermore, bringing in knives or scissors is a very quick and efficient way to anger event security and cause a great deal of hassle.

A perforated plastic roll banner will ultimately make your life much easier: no hassle, no muss, no fuss! It’s that simple. We can perforate 18″, 24″, 30″, 36″ and 48″ banners.

Your fans will love you. Your street team will love you. Concert security will love you. Give perforated plastic roll banners a try! You’ll never go back.

A Greener Banner

Plant sprouting from soil

We all know that plastic waste is an ever-swelling global problem. However, rather than adding to the problem, NorthCoast Banners makes it a priority to be a part of the solution. By using eco-friendly, biodegradable materials in the vast majority of our printing, we’re helping to cut back on the pollution that occurs in standard printing practices.

The plastic roll banners you’ll receive from NorthCoast are printed on a biodegradable poly. Bio-degradable plastic products have indefinite shelf life. Furthermore, depending on the environmental circumstances and the specific type of plastic used, this material will degrade over a period of 1-10 years in a landfill, rather than the 100 years it takes with other materials! Our plastic bio-degradable additive is:

  • FDA Compliant
  • BPA Free
  • Made in the United States

It’s also inert, so it will not affect the physical properties of the product in any way! This means that our banners will not only look beautiful, they will also soothe the troubled green conscience.

For more information on our eco-friendly plastic roll banners, or on any other of or products, please feel free to give us call at (800)-231-4213 or check out our website: http://www.northcoastbanners.com

How to Care for Your Vinyl Banners

Removing Wrinkles
Hang your banner out in the sun. If you have weights, attach them to the end of the banner via the grommets and the wrinkles will usually come out. Creases can also be removed by gently heating the non-printed surface with a hair dryer.

OR
Place the banner—print side down—on a flat surface. Use a steam iron at a low temperature to apply heat to the non-printed side until the wrinkles come out. DO NOT USE A HOT IRON.
CAUTION: Direct contact with a hot iron will permanently damage the banner.

Note: Test the above methods on an inconspicuous area of your banner first! This information serves as a guideline only. Northcoast Banners and Bags, Inc. is not responsible for any damage due to improper wrinkle removal.

Removing Minor Smudges and Stains
Wipe your banner down with a damp cloth. DO NOT use abrasive cloths, towels, or cleaning pads. If a damp cloth doesn’t work, add some mild detergent.
CAUTION: Strong detergents and other cleaners can damage the print.
