    i need to print acouple of yellow banners. some of the wording/dates/times etc needs to be cut vinyl.

    so my question is.....since i'm printing the banner to be yellow, next year when we go to change the cut vinyl....will it take off the yellow printed background with it?

    Why not just make an overlay to change the dates next year, banners aren't ment to last long anyway's.

    these are going to be used for no more than 24 hours each year.... not sure what you mean by an overlay? usually the space is blank when we need to change dates/times with cut vinyl, so theres no print we have to lay it over.

    This is your best option. Just reprint the dates in a square, and place it over the old ones.

    my first impression was the ink would lift due to it being printed...but as anything, don't know untill i try.....however, don't want to expriment on a customers banner so.......

    i'll see if they will go for a patch, if not the only other option is to buy in some yellow banner and use that instead...thanks for the imput.

    I can tell you now, that most likely the adhesive will rip the yellow away. I would go with the patch!

    According to what size these banners are, why don't you just buy yellow banners and apply die-cut vinyl to them ?? Seems the safest and best method all around with no chance of lifting, fading or matching old colors.
