    Is this one of those famous $10 rental banners?
    What's up with the corners?

    As far as banners go... I've seen worse...

    and I won't make fun of this one because they at least used a legible font. The message was clear and the contrast was good.

    The hanging of said banner sucks... and that says more than the words on the banner do about what is acceptable for their company.

    There was a local company that used to do their banner corners that way. I never understood that....what's that supposed to be accomplishing?

    They must fold the corners to add strength?

    They folded the corners to hide where they cut them....

    That's a $10 banner double-gusseted corner style.

    I think I saw that banner across town here last week. There must be a run on them going on somewhere.



    Anyway, the really scary part is.... what's really crooked in this picture ?? The building or the banner ?? :covereyes:

    Well like Bigdawg says you can read it ( from distance picture taken ) and it does have contrast.

    Here in Orlando that would be passable, we have alot worse I mean alot worse and not just from one or 2 sign shops how about 20 to 50 sign shops, I could load a gig or more of bad signs in here just in the last few months made that look worse then that.
    To prove it I'll go take 2 pictures both sign shops and less then a 1/4 mile away, both have printers and employees.
    Geez maybe the 2 will see it and start making better signs would be my hopes.
