You've spent money to design a custom banner that has the ideal colors and the exact message you wanted. It's all you could ask for. But when it was hung for display an awful accident happened. The grommet was ripped from the corner of the banner. It can no longer be displayed, unless you leave the corner hanging down. We know that's not a good choice, so what else can you do?
Good news! Our sign experts can do a little "doctoring" to your banner and save it. No need to call an ambulance, just contact us and we'll help you get your digital banner sign on the mend.
How do we perform surgery on your sign?
Grommets tearing out of a banner is the most common accident that happens with banner signs. This is typically caused by the pulling when hanging the sign. You add additional stress to the banner if you only use the corner grommets to support the weight of the banner. A preventative measure would be to distribute the weight across a rope that is woven across the length of the banner. This can then be tied off the same as if you used only the corners.
However, the prevention doesn't do any good if the problem has already occurred. But the good news is that the procedure to fix up banner signs is relatively simple and can be done in a short period of time.
To fix your banner, a piece of matching vinyl is cut larger then the tear. The additional amount of material allows for overlap. This helps the vinyl hold together better. A special kind of tape is then used to bond the new vinyl to the original banner sign. Once the new vinyl is adhered to the banner, a new grommet is attached in the same place as the previous one. The procedure that will extend the life of your digital banner has now been completed.
Will my banner have scars?
Unfortunately there will be signs of the repair. But they will only be visible from up close. If yoursign is being hung where people don't come directly up to it, the repair will be close to invisible. We make great efforts to assure that your banner sign looks as close to the original condition as possible.
Now you know if yourhappens to have a grommet torn out, there is no reason to get rid of it. You simply need a professional make a repair.
