What are hems and grommets?

Vinyl Banner Finishing Options: Heat Welded Hems and Grommets

Vinyl Banners: Hems and Grommets
Hems and Grommets
The standard finishing option for vinyl banners is hems and grommets.

Heat Welded Hems:
Hems consist of one inch of the vinyl banner material folded over to the backside of the banner and heated together to form a clean and strong one-inch hem. The hems increase the strength and durability of the banner.

Grommets:
Grommets are made of #2 brass rings. Grommets are about 1/2 inch in diameter. They are placed every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter and are used to help hang the banner. We recommend using all of the grommets provided when you hang your banner to prevent the banner from tearing or ripping.

Other finishing options for vinyl banners include 2" pole pockets, 3" pole pockets, reinforced hems and reinforced corners. Click here to get started on your banner.
