When you are holding a contest intended for the public then you can easily utilize 3×8 vinyl banners that you can hang up for the public to view. Whether you are advertising an ice fishing contest that will take place on the river or a muscle car beauty contest or a pie eating contest you need to advertise the contest so that you have participants and also spectators. With long summer days approaching many organizations both public and private hold various contests to raise money or to make sales of merchandise. 3×8 vinyl banners make good advertising sense.
Weather Resistant 3×8 Vinyl Banners
The good feature of 3×8 vinyl banners is that they are weather resistant. If they are printed with UV inks they may withstand the weather for approximately three years. Since vinyl is a very sturdy man made product it comes in different weights from very light weight to a heavier grade of vinyl. Generally the very large street banners that stretch across above a street will be a heavier grade of vinyl because they need to be a heavier material so that they continue to hang and not twist and flop when hanging. Whereas a smaller banner such as one that is three by eight feet may be a lighter weight vinyl but will be sturdy and also weather resistant. If you are advertising an ice fishing tournament you would want to purchase vinyl banners because they will withstand the damp from the river and also the sturdy nickel metal grommets will last in the various weather conditions.
Hanging Vinyl Banners
When you are hanging medium to large vinyl banners you will need to consider where you are going to hang them. Although a 3×8 foot banner is easily displayed and one person can hang it up. The larger banners will often take two people to hang them whereas a street banner will probably need a lift truck so that the banner can be hung across the street. But when hanging a vinyl banner from a chain link fence or between two poles it is easy to hang them with bungee cords. The bungee cords would be good to hang vinyl banners when advertising an ice fishing tournament or other outdoor displayed banners because they are flexible and can give in a windy or breezy climate. Also bungee cords withstand weather fairly well also. So when the 3×8 vinyl banners twist so do the cords.
