A vinyl banner is an investment that your store should be able to use again and again if you take proper care of your vinyl banner. Use Gloves When Handling Banner Vinyl banners are sturdy and can last a long time out, even if they are left outside. That doesn't mean though that you should be rough when handling your banner. When you handle your vinyl banner, put on gloves. Wearing gloves will prevent the transfer of oils onto your vinyl banner and will help keep it clean.
