Pole banners can be used inside and outside, though where you place them will impact what they’re made out of.
While some outdoor pole banners are made of 13-ounce vinyl just like indoor versions, many feature 16-ounce or 18-ounce vinyl for its greater durability in applications where they may be exposed to the wind, rain, sun and snow. For this reason, outdoor pole banners are also equipped with grommets, whereas indoor pole banners do not feature grommets. These metal-rimmed eyelets enable users to attach rope or ties for greater stability in the breeze.
Indoor pole banners Signs By Tomorrow Madison are created of smooth, block-out vinyl with your custom design printed on both sides. Block-out means it’s opaque so a design on one side of the pole banner won’t show through on the other. And f or optimum visibility, indoor pole banners typically feature a matte finish.
Mounting is easy. You’ll begin by attaching two horizontal arms or supports with hardware, so they’ll extend from a pole, post or wall. Two sewn-in pockets or sleeves at the top and bottom of the pole banner allow you to slide the banner onto the two extending arms. In minutes, you’re displaying your promotional message!
Pole banners are typically mounted well off the ground for excellent visibility. What's more, they use space that's not often needed for any other reason. Accordingly, many marketers opt to use several at a time to create a striking visual effect.
