Ways to Hang Your Personalized Graduation Banner
Once you receive your custom graduation banner, the next step is figuring out
how and where to display it. If you plan to hold it up during the ceremony,
you’re all set! All you need are some free hands. However, if you plan to use
the banner as a decoration, you need the means to hang it up. Here are several
accessories you can choose from for hanging your graduation banner:
1. Bungee Cords - Bungee cords are a quick and versatile
method for hanging your banner from a fence, grid, or wall. Attach one end of
each bungee cord to each grommet on the corners of your banner, and then
attach the other end of the cord to whatever surface you will hang your
banner. We offer a set of four premium 14” bungee cords that can stretch up to
29” long, giving you plenty of hanging possibilities.
2. Nylon Rope - Although not as quick to apply as bungee
cords, nylon rope is the most adaptable hanging solution for your graduation
banner. We offer a set of four 10’ pieces of rope, allowing you to hang your
banner to anchor points that other hanging accessories would not be able to
reach. This makes nylon rope an excellent option for hanging your banner from
something like a ceiling or garage door. The rope also allows you to control
how snug you want your banner to be—tighten the rope on each corner of your
banner to your liking. Our rope is outdoor-rated and has a 132 lb. workload
with 1100 tensile strength, which means it can withstand intense winds and
other external forces.
3. Hanging Clips - Also known as carabiners, hanging clips
allow quick and simple hanging. Run the clip through a grommet on your banner,
then run it through the desired anchor point. Clip them in, and you’re good to
go! One point to be aware of with hanging clips is they need anchor points
close to the banner’s edges. For this reason, these work incredibly well when
hanging your banner from a chain-link fence but may not work if trying to hang
your banner from a wall or ceiling. We offer a set of six steel hanging clips
for you to include with your graduation banner.
4. Zip Ties - Like hanging clips, zip ties offer fast and
simple hanging, especially on a chain-link fence. Zip ties are also small and
unnoticeable, so they don’t detract from the appearance of your banner. You
can order a pack of ten 7” zip ties with your banner, giving you enough ties
to securely hang your banner on graduation day.
5. Adhesive Velcro - Adhesive Velcro is a great solution for
attaching your banner to a wall indoors. Included are six strips of adhesive
Velcro, with each strip made of two pieces with an adhesive backing. To hang
your banner using adhesive Velcro, attach one piece of each strip to the wall
and the other piece to the corresponding location on your banner. Attach the
two pieces of Velcro, and there you have it!
6. Suction Cup & Hook - Need to hang your banner on a glass
window or door? We recommend going with the suction cup and hook hanging
method. This includes two suction cups and metal hooks. Insert the hooks
through the grommets on the top corners of your banner, and the suction cups
securely stick to any glass or acrylic surface.
