Hi Cheryl

Try to find a local curtainsider manufacturer, they use 1000gsm grade material, never had 1 rip on use, and as they are local you collect and save on P&P,

I've got a roll of Spandex Blockout Banner, that's about 700gsm here.

It's sat on my rack doing nothing for the past year!

Sounds like a nightmare waiting to happen if you ask me.
Not to sound rude but I would advise the client that banners are merely temporary and not for long-term use.
They should buy a separate banner for each event.
I foresee them coming back to you with a glue-residue stained nasty banner wanting you to "fix it" for free.
Just be careful.
Love....Jill

Ive done one for him before Jill...I think he's had it about 4 years now and is happy to take off the old short term vinyl and replace with new each time...

I use to use Boldscan for pretty much all of the banner type stuff I needed, always found them to be very helpful.
