Are there any security precautions that should be taken into account when using the banner?
always keep safety in mind when leading a team through the breakaway banner. it is important to educate the players so that they do not collide with each other or with the people holding the banner while running; this is a common mistake that could lead to serious injury if someone is hit or stepped on. The banner breaks easily so no extreme force is needed. It is also important to educate the people holding the banners to prepare for a loss of tension and to avoid falling backwards after the banner is detached.
There is a very low risk of injury if players and post holders are instructed on how to properly hold and run through the spreader banners.
Will my banner fade in the sunlight?
Your banner should not fade in the sunlight. We print using dye-sublimation, which involves injecting the ink directly into the fabric for a fade-resistant, full-color print. As with any printed banner, leaving it out in the sun and rain for an extended period of time may cause it to discolor, so we recommend storing it indoors in a dry environment and out of constant sunlight.
Can it rain on my banner?
yes! it’s perfectly okay for your banner to get wet. Because your banner is dye-sublimation printed on a polyester fabric, there is no danger to the print if it gets wet. in fact, we recommend that you clean your banner in a washing machine.
