What is 'from face edge'?
The front printing side is the face of your banner. The underside hem is called underside hem.
FROM the finished order size edge INWARDS to the middle of the banner is called FROM FACE EDGE (FFE).
SAFETY GRAPHICS AREA: We recommend you keep all graphics 1" 25mm AWAY from sewing positions.
All product (excluding knife edge only) MUST have extra dimension for manufacturing a hem. The hem is folded over. You can have graphic printed edges but remember, these will be folded over.

Things to consider: WE DO NOT use banner tape edges or self adhesive edging. Cheap techniques to secure edging may deteriorate outdoor, fail to carry load or seperate over time. SBO proudly supply quality products.
