How to hang a banner with grommets?

The best way to hang a banner with grommets is with display accessories, which increase the versatility of hanging your banner in a variety of situations while maintaining its protection. Grommets and other banner finish options, which you can read more about in our post about banner options, fit well with these accessories.

Bungee Cords

Bungee cords are great for pulling your banner while it’s on display. Simply loop one end of the cord through the grommet and the other end through an anchor point of your choice. Make sure each bungee has enough tension to move the banner uniformly over its surface.

Nylon Rope

Whether or not your banner has grommets, nylon rope is one of the most popular ways to hang it. Banners may be secured to poles, fences, or suspended from ceilings of overhangs by looping through grommets or feeding through pole pockets.

Hanging Clips

Carabiners, also known as hanging clips, can be quickly clipped via grommets and then clipped to anchor points or objects. Carabiners may be used for both long-term and short-term displays. The carabiners can be hooked into the fence and to the sign via the metal grommets, making this a perfect choice for showing a banner on a chain link fence.

Zip Ties

Zip ties are used to hang the banner on fences temporarily (chain link fences are the best for this). For casual, outdoor events (food truck ads, fairs, sales, grand openings, birthday parties, and more), we suggest zip ties! Zip ties are often more widely used for longer periods of time than bungee cords, rope, or clips because they are more permanent in nature.

Suction Cups and Hooks

Banners may be hung with suction cups on non-porous (smooth) flat surfaces. Glass is the most popular application surface for these. Hooks extend from the suction cups and can be inserted directly into the banner’s grommets. It’s important to note that suction cups aren’t designed for big or heavy banners.

How to hang a banner without grommets?

Although there are several options for hanging a banner with grommets, there are also a few options for hanging a banner without them.


To tie your banner to the back, Velcro adhesive strips can be used. The strips are divided into two parts, one of which adheres to the surface you want to stick your banner to and the other to the back. Velcro strips will hold your banner in place if you want it to be shown on or wrapped around something. If you want to change out banners in the same display position on a regular basis or if you want a banner without grommets around the edges, Velcro is ideal. For indoors, Velcro is ideal for hanging your banner on walls.

Pole Pockets

Pole pockets are created by folding the banner in half and sewing it together. You can either slide the banner over a pole and hang it from both ends (imagine two people carrying a suspended banner at the start of a parade) or loop something through the pole pocket, such as a rope or chain. You may choose to have pole pockets sewn on all four sides of your banner or only one.


Strong magnets are a good choice if you have a metal surface.

To sum up

Banners are a flexible and long-lasting choice for indoor and outdoor signage. You shouldn’t have to worry about your banner tearing or collapsing prematurely if you’ve properly hung it.
