Hems & Eyelets
Banners will be given a reinforced hem, then eyeletted at equal distributions along the hem. Reinforced hems are created by folding over approximately 30mm of extra banner material to the backside of the banner creating a double thickness on the edges.
The standard distribution of eyelets is one per metre and we recommend leaving an inner margin of 60mm clear of any text. If you require a different distribution or specific placement of eyelets, that’s no problem at all - simply let us know what you need when you place your order.

A pocket is added to the edges you require to allow a pole to pass through and support and tension the banner an eyelet can also be placed at each edge to allow fixing of retaining loop required in some installations.
As standard we add a pole pocket suitable for a 60mm scaffold pole. You will need to add 180mm to each edge where a pole pocket is required as we produce the pockets inclusive of your overall size. Please let us know which edges (top/bottom/left/right) are to have pockets, as well as the diameter of the pole(s) being used if not our standard size.
Custom pole pocket sizes are available on request. If you need to calculate the pocket allowance area, please use this formula:
Pole Diameter × 2.5 + 30mm =??? add this to every edge where a pole pocket is required, however, if you let us know the diameter of the pole to go into the pole pocket we can calculate the size of the pocket for you.
The most common confusion with pole pockets arises when some customers expect the pockets to be added to the overall size of the banner ordered. Instead, we produce pockets inclusive of the overall size you order.
This requires you to add a pole pocket allowance area, which varies in size depending on the diameter of pole that will be used. This pocket allowance area should be used on any edge where a pocket will be required.
We recommend this area is kept free of any important content (text, logos) and only used for background images and colours.
