This is the time of the year when improbably named storms come thick and fast. Right in time for the season of fireworks.
But it is also the time to give a reminder to those of you who have banners up at the moment. Although our banners are reinforced, it is best to check they are tightly secured along all the edges, not just the corners, to prevent ripping and tearing. A flapping banner is not only a distraction for passing motorists, it could become a safety hazard to pedestrians or cause an accident if it becomes totally free of its fixings. Do check it regularly.
We use UV stable inks in our manufacturing process, but salt water (if your banner is within five miles of the coast - the water travels) and sunlight can shorten the life of your product, so do take it in when your event has passed. Roll in up and store it safely for next time.
