Vinyl burns easily, so make sure that the iron never comes into direct contact with the surface of your signs. Place the banner with the printed side down on a flat surface. Then, place a warm, damp soft cloth on top of your banner. Be sure to set the steam temperature to low and gently iron the creases.

Use a low-temperature steam iron to apply heat to the unprinted face until wrinkles appear. DO NOT USE A HOT IRON. Before hanging an old banner, smooth out any wrinkles by placing it in the sun. The heat will do wonders for this just remember it has to be wet cloth.

You can also use a hair dryer, iron, or warm damp cloth to do the same. However, once it gets wet, use the iron (medium heat) to steam iron stubborn creases and the banner will look like new once again. Place the sign on the smooth floor surface for steam ironing. Keep doing so until the creases and creases completely disappear from the vinyl.

Too much heat can melt vinyl, so make sure to set the steam iron to its lowest temperature. Several sources say you can use a hair dryer or iron on your vinyl material to remove creases and crease lines. We do not recommend this option as the main option for removing wrinkles. The reason for this is that vinyl is very sensitive to heat, especially when it is close to the material, and will cause damage if these methods are done incorrectly.

Vinyl burns easily and is less likely to spoil in sunlight than with a hair dryer or iron. It is not recommended to use cleaners such as bleach on vinyl banners, as they can quickly damage the material and quality of the ink. This can happen with old vinyl items that have been used for years, as there comes a time when banners and tablecloths need to be replaced. The best way to store the printed vinyl banner is to roll it up (not too tight) and, if possible, wrap it in a cloth or protective film.



Make sure that when rolled up in a container, the vinyl is not flattened so that creases can occur. As mentioned above, you'll never want to store your banners when they're wet, as additional moisture can cause mold and significant damage to your custom vinyl banners. One way to be very careful not to damage the vinyl is to make sure that the iron or hair dryer never comes into direct contact with the material. The quality of vinyl is different, so you need to determine the precise conditions for which you need PVC vinyl plastic.

Instead, it is strongly recommended to place the damp cloth over the banner and then apply heat with the iron and then next step is to steam before clean water. The crumpled fabric banner and imperfect display of your vinyl banner can disrupt your brand message and the purpose of the advertising. The iron and hair dryer should heat the unprinted side of the vinyl to protect the printed graphic side of the tablecloth or banner. If you're keeping banner edges that have vinyl lettering, then it's important to roll them up with the lettering or design on the outside so you can keep your  outdoor banner vibrant colors.

If you use an iron, you can set it to a low temperature and place a piece of cloth on the vinyl so that the hot iron does not touch the material directly and do not damage any color.

Hair Dryer

You can use a hair dryer to steam your custom banner,  you can do the same with backdrops you use on some events, remember that grommets can get hot whenever you  steam your mesh banner, it is important to notice that the mesh fabric needs to be clean with soap a mild soap or any other cleanning product like detergents , it has to be mild detergent, or a mixture of soap, with a soft cleaning cloth same with vinyl backdrops, dust must not be on the surface of your banner, also you need to steam your banner on the non printed side to not damage your banner print, at the end you wil not have a wrinkled banner anymore and you will have a dry cloth
