MATERIAL CARE GUIDE
If you’re going to install the banner outdoors and hang it between two structures, attach it securely to something that can handle a slight wind load on the banner. For safety, banners should be taken down during windy conditions. It should be taut, but not stretched too tight. Slight sagging is necessary to allow the banner to absorb some of the wind load. For long banners, consider installing a cable between the structures and hanging the banner from that. You may also wish to cut wind holes in the banner as well. Whenever possible, install your banner against a solid object such as a the side of a building. This will give your banner the longest life.
Periodic cleaning will keep your banner looking great. To clean, use a mild soap in water. Avoid harsh cleaners or solvents that could damage the banner material or printed image.
Banners should hang or be rolled for storage. For best results, roll the banner with the graphics out around a 4″ diameter tube. This will keep your banner smooth and crease-free. NEVER FOLD YOUR BANNER!
It has been said that an outdoor banner is like a sail without a ship. Be realistic in your expectations. While a banner is an excellent promotional sign, it is not a substitute for a permanent sign.
The magnetic sign and surface should be clean and dry. In any outdoor application, such as car signs, the metal surface should be waxed.
Your magnetic sign holds the best to flat surfaces and surfaces resonably curved in one direction. When the magnetic is placed in the wrong position, remove the magnet and re-align. Do not pull the magnet to re-align when it is against the surface, as the magnet may stretch due to the resistance caused by the high magnetic strength. Make sure the entire magnet is against the metal surface (no air pockets).
Some moisture and dirt will collect between the magnet and metal surface, particularly in outside applications (vehicles). Remove and clean both the magnet and surface with mild soap and allow both to dry. On vehicles, repeat the process weekly. To protect the clear coat / base coat and vinyl surfaces present on new vehicles, we recommend daily removal of magnetic signs. We do not recommend applying magnetic signs to repainted surfaces.
Your magnetic sign is more pliable and easier to work with if it is near room temparature when applied. The best way to store your magnet is flat, never magnet to magnet.
