Just curious...Wind flaps... Ive heard mixed reviews. Some do em some don't. Do you guys use them and if so what do you use to cut them? Are there specific structural areas that they should be cut? Any info on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
Just another area to fail. Plus they look like poo IMHO. We only had one banner shred ever, and that was in sustained 60mph winds. Plus the client had it tighter than a banjo string. If you are worried about the wind use a mesh type banner.
In my opinion it is a horrible idea and they are so hideous. BUT, if you do use them, use a punch (like for doing grommets) and make a nice clean circle at the ends of the cuts - it reduces the tenancy to tear.
The only time I've found a wind slit to be a good idea is when I am thinking to myself: "What is the BEST way to make this banner full on ugly?"
