Fold 3 inches of the top of the tarp and secure the fold with hot glue or strong adhesive to make it stick to the banner. Insert a wooden dowel inside which will be good for hanging the banner. The dowel should be about 4 inches longer than the width of the banner so that to hold it properly. Vinyl banners have grommets that allow running the string through them to hold them.
  • The most important thing about these banners is the way you highlight them and the way they would look when you hang them. This is important as it will make it look classy and attractive. They should look not only presentable but also attractive.

  • This ensures that the banner stands out and will have people take notice of the advertisement as well. The banner should also have important contact details like the address of the store or the office and also the contact details of the person to be contacted.
  • Attach pictures on the banner with spray adhesive. Place each picture on newspaper to protect surfaces. Spray in a side-to-side motion until the back is covered with a single layer to make it intact.
  •  Wait for 30 seconds to a minute before you turn the picture over. Smooth out any wrinkles using your hand to make it look good.
  • Now all you need to do is hang the banner using heavy string.  You can tie the string to the ends of the dowel or run the string through the grommets to hold the banner properly.
