Not illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... to be done. Cotton drilling will be found to be heavy enough for all purposes. In many instances unbleached cotton sheeting is used. The design is duplicated, as all banners show from opposite directions. It is necessary, therefore, to cut out the different parts of the design and make them fit accurately when placed back to back. In Fig. 46 is shown a banner with a ribbon and panel, on which the lettering is placed; the center piece containing the vignettes is also shown. In painting and lettering a banner, the sign painter should avoid the use of too much white lead, as this makes the banner heavy and causes it to sag in the center. To attach the designs to the net, one set is laid face downwards, and the net placed over it. The next set is then placed on top, face upwards, bringing both sets back to back, with the net between. The edges are then sewed together, securing them to the strands of the nets. 108. Hanging the Banner.--A if-inch Manila or hemp rope should be extended between opposite points on the street and securely fastened. Before fastening one end permanently, the banner should be slid on to this rope, iron rings having been fastened to the top of the banner. To the outside rings at the top corners small ropes should be firmly attached, and carried through a pulley at each end. These ropes should be about % inch, or about clothes-line size. The object of operating the banner with _pulleys is that it may readily be brought in against the building and fastened during a violent wind storm. A guy rope should be fastened at each of the lower corners, and these should be fastened at the angle shown in Fig. 46. This will hold the banner firmly and prevent the wind from whipping out the corners. 109. Club more
