  • Hangers for Banners??

    I have just splurged and purchased a metre long banner. It doesn't come with eyelets, any suggestions on how I can hang it. I move from venue to venue so would probably need something that can move with me (rather than just stuck down). All suggestions greatly received!

    You could try clips, or sticky velcro strips?

      if it is a light weight banner vista print sell stick on hangers. not sure how much they are but only a few quid. I got some when I bought my banner from them as an added extra so I am sure they sell them separately. they stick to each corner and you can either thread something through the holes but I used safety pins to pin it to the front of my table.

        Hi there

        Maybe try some clips called hold-ons, this is the sales blurb about them:

        These clever Swedish clips will grip any flexible material and provide a strong hanging point without the need for conventional eyelets. The more you pull, the more they grip.

        They provide the following advantages over eyelets:

        Banners can be rolled up flat without any eyelet damage.
        Fixing points can be selected exactly where they are needed whilst on-site.
        Excellent load capacity of 40kg for the Mini Holdon and 100kg for the Maxi Holdon.
        No tools needed just push to fit.
        Completely reuseable and relocatable


        You can get them from Flint Hire - search for them online, then search for 'holdon' (no space)- This is a theatrical chandlers that I use a lot, they have all sorts of weird and wonderful things, athough their website can be tricky to navigate.

        Good luck!

              Except .....we need versatility. I go to shows where I get a table in the middle of the floor (I pin my banner to my table cloth), a table by a wall (bluetak or tied to drainpipes or window fastenings or wall bars if it's a gym, or a table in a craft tent (S hooks), or my tent (I use the ties on my banner fastened to it's metal framework) or my gazebo (I haven't come up with a good idea for that one yet. The struts are all at silly angles and at different heights and everything slides off or is wonky.)

                Got the Hold ons from Flint Hire for that very reason AnnieAnna. So far so very impressed. Have pinned them to my cloth at a Wedding Fair, and used cord to tie them up at another event. They are sturdy too and you aren't just restricted to having them at the corners.

                  AnnieAnna - a wonky banner is cool!
