Grommets are probably the most common finishing option. They are of various forms and sizes. Grommets have reinforced holes for attaching ropes, hooks and the likes.

This is the standard finishing option for vinyl banners. Hems consist of one inch of the vinyl banner material folded over to the backside of the banner and heated together to form a clean and strong one-inch hem. The hems increase the strength and durability of the banner. While grommets on the other hand, are made of #2 brass rings. Grommets are about 1/2 inch in diameter. They are placed every 2-4 feet around the banner perimeter and are used to help hang the banner. We recommend using all of the grommets provided when you hang your banner to prevent the banner from tearing or ripping.


Pole pockets consist of either 2 inches or 3 inches of material wrapped around the sides, top or bottom of the banner. The vinyl banner material is folded over the back side of the banner similar to hems, but there is room for a pole or rod to go through the pocket. The material is heat welded onto the backside of the banner which creates a smooth 2-inch or 3-inch seam.


This kind of commemorative flag can be seen in several events not just soccer games. Decorating the field with triangle soccer banners will make it more conducive to players and entertaining to the crowd.
