Care for Polly Banners
INSTALLATION: Use Strong ropes, bungee,
snap hooks, cable, etc. Attach and pull the ropes horizontally not
diagonally. Keep tension in all four corners with whatever you use to tie
your banner. If a rope becomes slack go back and tighten it. Excess flapping
of a banner results in tears, cracking, and delaminating.
CONSTRUCTION: This Polly banner is woven
from 900 denier polyethylene tape with a 1.5 ml. coating designed for both
outdoor and indoor use.
DURABILITY: Many months when hung
correctly: secured with tension from all four corners and checked regularly.
STRENGTH: Polly Banner material has a
tear strength of 30 lb. per inch. Compare this to a 10 oz. vinyl at 28 lb.
STORAGE: ALWAYS roll your Polly Banner
like a poster. Never fold it in half.
Recommendations and Care for Magnetic Signs
APPLICATION: Magnetic signs hold best to
flat surfaces and surfaces reasonably curved in one direction. When the
magnet is placed in the wrong position, remove the magnet and realign. Do
NOT pull the magnet to realign when it is against the surface, as the magnet
may stretch due to the resistance caused by the high magnetic strength.
CLEANING: Some moisture and dirt will
collect between the magnet and metal surface, particularly in outside
applications (vehicle signs). Remove and clean both the magnet and surface
with a mild detergent and allow to dry. For vehicle signs, repeat the
cleaning at least once a month. To protect the new clear coat/base coat and
vinyl surfaces present on new cars and trucks, we RECOMMEND daily removal of
magnetic signs. We do not recommend applying magnetic signs to repainted
STORAGE: The best way to store the
magnetic signs are FLAT. Never magnet to magnet. Always store magnetic
sheeting in a clean and dry environment.

How to Apply Vinyl Signs
1. Vinyl should be applied only when the air
and work-surface temperatures are above 55 degrees.
2. Clean the surface where the sign is to be
applied, using Windex or another commercial glass cleaner. For best results,
mix your own solution using two parts water to one part isopropyl alcohol.
Be sure to dry the area thoroughly with a clean, lint-free cloth.
3. Measure carefully and outline the area where
the sign will be applied. Making sure your horizontal lines are level will
assure a level application of your vinyl sign.
4. Lay your sign upside-down on a clean
surface. Peel off the backing to reveal the adhesive.
5. Spray a light layer of soapy water onto the
area that you prepared in steps 2 and 3, and apply the adhesive side of the
vinyl to the surface. The soapy water enables you to adjust the sign
slightly to assure a straight application. Once the sign is straight, use a
small squeegee to remove any excess soapy water from behind the vinyl.
6. Let the adhesive set for a few minutes, and
then remove the tape from the front of the vinyl. Poke any large air bubbles
with a pin and smooth. Smaller bubbles will disappear on their own in a week
