    Hey -
    anyone have any recommendations on preperation and materials to be used on awnings?

    We're doing a job where a customer wants their logo + some letters, and were wondering what vinyl to use - we hear that 3M would likely be the best with that.

    Also - are there any quick tips of the trade that some people new to an awning job might find useful? Cleaning fluids, brushes, ect.?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    no vinyl will work

    Naz-Dar PX series is good to use like paint. It retains flexibility.

    Even ultra tack, or cast vinyl applied with high heat and pressure will not adhere to canvas "Sunbrella" style awnings longer than a week or so.

    Paint is your best option here. If the logo or artwork is full color then consider applying graphics to rigid board and mechanically fastening this board through the awning into the tubular steel frame.

    First find out what material the awning is made from.
