    I need to collective knowledge of signs101 for this one.

    A client of ours that we have been printing more and more for, wants us to use a specific fastener for their banners that I have never seen or heard of before. They sent me a picture and I'm having no luck locating them.

    I'm hoping someone here would have an idea of where to get these. Thanks for the help!

    I'm hoping to find a supplier for these... they want me to convert every banner we have done for them to these attachments, I'm going to need 1000's of these things.

    I want to think I've ran across those on soft sided trailers before. Possibly a soft sided trailer manufacturer might be able to source them?

    That's what I was thinking also, They look similar to the Truck Curtain fasteners but the difference is the truck curtains have a tensioner system built in and these are just simple straps and loops...

    We have been to Utility Trailers and Fleet Pride which are 2 of the largest trailer companies in AZ and neither of them said they had anything close.
