Long story short, I'm starting on my first really big job today, 35 2'x10' banners. I'll be doing them in sets of about 6 at a time, 2 up on a 54" inch roll, so I'll be doing around 7 sets, and obviously i'll be using the take-up reel. As anyone who's used the take-up reel knows, you have to bring out about 4 - 5 feet of material to set it up, which goes to waste. Now I'm thinking, if I cut the banners off the reel but leave that 4 -5 feet of leading material on there, can I just bring out the roll a little bit for the next set and tape it to what's already on the roll, reusing the leading material from before? I have a feeling it'll work, but all the same I figured I'd get some opinions.
