We just installed this machine that welds the edges on our vinyl banners. It’s faster than sewing, and looks better too! We especially like the fact that it doesn’t leave a line of stitching in the vinyl banners. We use it to hem our banners before we install grommets, and also to do pole pockets in our vinyl banners.
The machine is made by Miller Weldmaster, a lead in this field. They specialize in helping companies like us to join vinyl banners using heat instead of thread. The seams are thus smoother than what you get with sewing, and stronger too.
We think this new machine is going to give us a better product, and help us keep our costs down. The next time you order a vinyl banner from us, tell us how you like the new hemming method!
