    Leister HEMTEK is a reasonably priced option.

    I have a HEMTEK I would sell... we used it an handful of times and havent used it in a year. Hardly do banners anymore since there are so many cutthroat places online.

    We love our Hemtek. It's somewhat easy to learn and in less than 2 minutes you can have a finished 4x8 banner. Much faster than hem tape and looks better than sewn.

    We have a welder for our banners and switched everything over to double needle stitching. The finished look is a personal opinion. Many of my customers are glad we went to stitching. If your doing smaller banners its great. If you do long banner a welder is a pain unless you have tables long enough to accommodate. I have found that with longer banner I prefer stitching them over welding them.

    Out of curiosity, how is it you don't need a long table for a long banner for sewing but you do for welding?
    We don't have any problem welding 25+ feet long. Even done nearly up to a 100' in length in just a couple minutes without any problem. Our table is 9' long. We built a portable roller that feeds the rolls into the welder and reduces the friction from the table.

    We have been trying to use a single needle non walking foot (bottom does top doesn't) upholstery commercial machine and it isn't working. I think we need a double walking foot double needle, but we don't do that much stitching so a single needle will work. We typically fold over 13oz with webbing. What machine are you using and what would you recommend? Thanks, JM
