Banners are a great way to advertise. A custom banner can be used to advertise both inside and outside. You can use a custom banner to advertise a special sale, draw attention to a special offer, or just advertise your store. Banners can be used at conventions, both inside and outside, and at your actual store location. Banners are great because they can also be reused as well.

If you invested in one or more banners, make sure that you take care of your banners. Banners do not have to be a one-time use kind of thing. If you properly store your banner, you can use it again and get more use out of it.

Clean Things Up

The first thing you need to do is clean it up. You should always clean your banner up after you use it. Luckily, it is pretty easy to clean a banner. To clean your banner, you will need some mild soap, a sponge, and some water.

Get a sponge wet, and put a little mild soap on it. Use the sponge to wipe down and clean off the banner. Rinse the soap away with some water. Be sure to clean both the front and the back of the banner.

Avoid using any soaps that have harsh or strong chemicals in them. Harsh or strong chemicals will damage the ink on the banner and cause the image to fade away.

Once you clean your banner, wipe it down and make sure it is dry before storing it.

Find the Right Location

Second, you need to make sure that you have a good location for storing your banner. You are going to want to store your banner up somewhere that is both cool and dark most of the time. A storage shed or an extra closet is a great location to store a banner. You want the environment to be as consistent and dry as possible. This will help preserve the integrity of the banner.

Avoid Folding the Sign

When it comes time to store your banner, avoid folding the banner. Folding up a banner and letting it sit that way for an extended period of time will cause permanent creases to develop in the banner. Although you can use it with creases in it, it is not going to look as professional as it could. That is why you should roll up your banners.

When you invest in a banner for your business, you are not making a one-time investment. You are making a long-term investment, especially if you keep your banner clean and you roll it up and store it somewhere dry and cool.
