    Ok I am new to banners, having trouble finding a banner material that is heavy weight and non curl when cut into a pennant shape or rectangle. I print banners for high school championships and I can not for the life of me stop the curling on the sides.
    Is there a specific banner material that I should be using???
    Is it possible to get them completely flat??
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    This is what we use in our shop, too and I've never had much trouble with curling, although I've never actually made pennant shapes with it so I can't speak from experience on that.
