    Banner Tape

    Hey all,

    I'm looking for the best and most cost effective banner tape. I'm curious as to the difference between Lexjet's tape for $32 a roll for 1" x 108' and Signworld has 1" x 164' for $8 a roll. What's the difference?

    Shouldn't be much difference, we sell high quality heavy duty hem tape in large volume to many major clients across the states. The adhesive has been proven to hold up well in cold or hot weather conditions and are extremely compatible with use for hemming banner material together. Feel free to try a roll, we promise you will love the product. :rock-n-roll:

    depends a lot on the weather you are at.

    we are already over 100*f and the only tape that works for us is VHB, banner tape always separates and can't tale the heat

    Exactly so [but with an apostrophe as in"'They're"].

    I use Oracal merely because it's the cheapest option available to me. There is cheaper but it would appear the those rolls were parted with a dull chainsaw. The ragged edges make peeling off the backing an educational experience. You learn how to curse.
