Printed Banner Finishes, Fixtures and Fittings Explained

When ordering custom printed banners it is important to consider the type of finishing would best suit your needs. We offer a range of finishes, fixtures and fittings to help you attach your printed banners, shade cloth or signs to fences or scaffolding.

Here is a breakdown of the different options there are on different products:

Hemmed Edge

Hemming is a forming operation in which the edges of the banner is folded or folded over another part and sown in order to achieve a tight fit. Normally hemming operations are used to connect parts together, to improve the appearance of a part and to reinforce part edges. A hemmed finish helps to maintain the banner’s shape and prevent stretching.

A hemmed edge finish is available for shade cloth.

Welded Edge

Hot welded edges are a banner finish with a folded edge. Approximately 4cm of the edge is doubled over and then hot welded to itself. Hot welding requires specific equipment and training, but this process creates a stronger, more consistent edge finish.

A welded edge finish is available for banner mesh and front lit vinyl.

Stainless Steel Eyelets

Stainless Steel Eyelets are built in to the top and bottom edges of the banner. Button hole eyelets provide premium strength and a neat looking installation for shade cloth banners. We recommend using cable ties to attach your printed shade cloth as it provides a secure and neat finish.

A stainless steel eyelet finish is available for banner mesh, front lit vinyl and is an optional extra for printed corflute.

Button Holes

Button Holes are the most efficient and in-expensive option for shade cloth banner finishing. These are pre-built holes in the banner that allow you to attach your shade cloth easily.

A button hole finish is available for shade cloth.
