Advertising banners and billboards can radically increase the visibility of your business.
But, if your banners and billboards aren’t adequately protected, your outdoor signage can be damaged by the elements. The sun, for example, can fade your advertising billboards. This can decrease your outdoor signage visibility and the overall effect of your outdoor signage as well.
There’s also the cost factor of having to replace your advertising banners.
The following tips can help protect your banners and billboards and keep them in good condition.
Choose A Durable Material Like Vinyl Scrim
Vinyl scrim advertising banners are one example of a very durable, resilient material. This is the type of banner that can also be rolled up and used many times.
Since they can be taken down and protected, you don’t have to worry about the elements on a 24/7 basis.
Any sort of portable outdoor signage is always a good option. Vinyl scrim banners can also be made with a mesh to protect it from high winds.
Laminate Your Signs With a UV Resistant Laminate
Laminating your signs with a UV resistant laminate will protect your signage from not only the sun but the elements in general. This is one of the best options for extending the lifespan of your outdoor signage.
Place Your Signs Under Shelter
Placing your advertising banners under some sort of protective shelter like a canopy or awning can help shield your outdoor signage from the sun and the elements.
Depending upon the type of sign, placing it under the shade is another option that will allow you to protect it from fading and cracking. Of course, if you choose to do this, you want to ensure that your outdoor signage is still visible.
It’s also important to be mindful of the condition of the trees; a lot of wind could potentially cause branches to fall and damage your sign. So, ensure that any trees are in good condition.
Talk To The Professionals
Lastly, it’s also a good idea to talk to the people who created your sign for you in the first place; they will be able to offer further professional advice regarding how to take care of your particular type of signage so that it lasts for as long as possible.
