BannerSpring Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will BannerSpring work on all Sizes and types of wall and sign surfaces?

A: YES. From tiny 4x8 banners to 14x48 and 16x68 wallscapes and billboards and even round vinyls, BannerSpring is designed to work easily on all areas that would accommodate vinyl and PE signage. Great in open frame areas as well as on walls or even over existing sign faces. The compact design of BannerSpring enables a tight installation for your vinyls while remaining fairly obscure. Adding BannerFrame to the perimeter of the display is an easy way to completely hide the springs while creating an even better signage experience. BannerSpring and BannerFrame provide outstanding installations on all sign surfaces from large wallscapes, to small point of purchase displays.

Q: How difficult is it to install the BannerSpring and BannerFrame systems?

A: Very easy, in most cases, a cordless drill, proper screws and tape measure is all that is required.

Q: Is the BannerSpring and BannerFrame system eco-friendly?

A: Absolutely, BannerSpring and BannerFrame enable banners to last much longer and to even become permanent signage solutions. Easy rotation and re-use of vinyl mean that “One and done” does not have to apply when using the system.

Q: Is BannerSpring/BannerFrame durable and maintenance free?

A: Yes. Designed for and used on large high-rise billboards, BannerSpring has stood the test-of-time. Made in Ohio entirely of durable engineered Stainless Steel, each BannerSpring is an independent member of an overall system of springs with no plastic components whatsoever. While we have not seen a spring failure in over two years of use, each piece is easily replaceable simply by changing out an individual spring. You can expect long trusted service whether changing banners frequently or maintaining the same vinyl for extended periods.

Q: Do BannerSpring and BannerFrame require grommets on our banners or special perimeter finishing?

A: Absolutely not, BannerSpring only requires very limited protrusions into the perimeter of the banner surface. Each spring has a padded hook tip that prevents rips while holding the vinyl banner extremely close and tight to the wall or sign surface resulting in maximum vinyl life span.

Q: Are there any special requirements when having banners printed?

A: No. While you could have your banner vendor pre-punch perimeter holes to our specifications, you can easily do the job yourself with our SpringGrab tool. Lind Outdoor orders and uses vinyls and banners from many vendors each of whom have their own designated systems. The beauty of the BannerSpring system is that it works with EVERY banner type and finishing technique on the market.

Q: What is the typical prep time and process for each banner installation?

A: None, drop shipped banners for local and national clients go directly from the shipping box to installation location with absolutely no prep time. No gripper bars, cables, grommets or clips. Just the installer using the tools mentioned above.

Q: Can Banners be easily changed or rotated and re-used with BannerSpring?

A: Yes. The typical on premise banner display can easily rotate and change as often as desired because of the simplicity of BannerSpring and BannerFrame. Banner life is also extended as the BannerSpring requires limited protrusions into the perimeter while holding the vinyl extremely close and tight to the surface resulting in maximum banner life span. BannerFrame takes this one step further by hiding and protecting the banner perimeter.

Q: How can BannerSpring and BannerFrame benefit Sales?

A: Whether you are a sign industry professional or a direct user, BannerSpring and BannerFrame create revenue possibilities that are endless. From large wallscapes to small temporary banners, the system allows easy change-outs that can result in increased sales via a rotary banner program and increased sales for the end-user that enable fresh professional looking banners with seasonal up-to-date content that can pull traffic and drive sales. Tight, sag-free installations equal happy customers and clients. The ability to easily change-out banners and re-use them can result in increased banner sales and more placement options.

Q: About what does each system cost?

A: We use (1) BannerSpring for each corner and (1) BannerSpring each 1.5 linear feet around the perimeter. Thus a 4x8 banner would require (14) BannerSprings. At approximately $2.00 per spring, BannerSpring is not only the most effective system, it is also the most affordable to purchase, install and operate.

Q: How would you summarize BannerSpring and BannerFrame?

A: It really is a great product for both temporary and permanent applications. We are not aware of a better system.

PosterSpring Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will PosterSpring work on all styles of poster panels and trim?

A: YES. PosterSpring is designed to work easily with all molding types, both new and old, 30-sheet and 8-sheet. The narrow width enables a fit even below "stretch face" trim. PosterSpring even works nicely on radius corner or "retro" panels. PosterSpring and BannerSpring provide outstanding postings on bulletins and billboard poster panels that have no molding.

Q: How difficult is it to install the PosterSpring system?

A: Very easy, no need to remove or replace trim, molding, or brackets. Lind Outdoor converted 90% of its poster plant without removing molding. A billposter with a cordless drill, tape measure and 48 PosterSprings is all that is required.

Q: Is the PosterSpring system eco-friendly?

A: PosterSpring is the most Eco-Friendly system on the market. PosterSpring is the only system that enables easy rotation and re-use of SSPs. "One and done" does not have to apply when using the system.

Q: Is PosterSpring durable and maintenance free?

A: Yes. Made in Ohio entirely of durable engineered Stainless Steel, each PosterSpring is an independent member of an overall system of springs with no plastic components whatsoever. While we have not seen a spring failure in over two years of use, each piece is easily replaceable simply by changing out an individual spring.

Q: Must the molding or trim brackets be modified in any way?

A: No modifications necessary. Just drill small holes into the side of the molding at specified 18" intervals. Can we still post glued posters and install Premier vinyl Wraps after installing PosterSpring? Absolutely, PosterSpring is installed completely beneath the molding and does not protrude into the posting surface and display area when not in use. Further, vinyl wraps can be accomplished just as before as PosterSpring is completely contained beneath the molding.

Q: Are there any special requirements when having posters printed?

A: No. While we prefer that the vendor pre-punch perimeter holes to our specifications, we can easily do the job ourselves with our SpringGrab tool. Lind Outdoor orders and uses posters from most vendors each of whom have their own designated systems. The beauty of the PosterSpring system is that it works with EVERY single sheet poster on the market.

Q: What poster houses have provided your SSP posters?

A: All vendors that provide printing for regional and national outdoor campaign posters perform extremely well with PosterSpring. For local and regional buys, we often use National Print Group of Chattanooga as their single sheet poster installs and displays very well while remaining durable enough for rotation. We have also been happy with Kramer Graphics which has a substrate more similar to lightweight vinyl. SSPs from Circle Graphics, Venture, United Grafix, Vincent, John Evans, OAI and Independent's Service Company have each performed nicely as well.

Q: What is the typical prep time and process for each posting?

A: None, drop shipped posters for local and national buys go directly from the shipping box to the poster panel with absolutely no prep time. No gripper bars, cables or clips. Just the SSP poster and an installer using the SpringGrab hand tool.

Q: Can Single Sheet posters really be rotated and re-used with PosterSpring?

A: Yes. The typical Single Sheet Poster can rotate multiple times depending on the vendor. PosterSpring requires limited protrusions into the poster while holding the SSP extremely close and tight to the face resulting in maximum poster life span. Lind Outdoor rotates hundreds of SSPs monthly with great success.

Q: How has PosterSpring benefitted your Sales?

A: PosterSpring has provided amazing success on the sales side of our business because our poster and bulletin plants look awesome. Tight, wrinkle free postings equal happy advertisers. The ability to re-use and rotate single sheet posters has lowered production costs for our advertisers, enabling them to increase ad-spend in outdoor space. PosterSpring delivers lower production costs which provide a competitive advantage versus other outdoor operators and other media formats in general.

Q: How has PosterSpring benefitted your Operations Department?

A: Very nicely, PosterSpring has enabled Lind to decrease billposting positions by 60%, while enabling increased posting volume. We have been able to transfer personnel to construction, maintenance and vegetation control that has enabled us to elevate the quality, size and condition of our plant.

Q: About what does each system cost?

A: We use (48) PosterSprings for each 30-sheet face which translates to 18" spacing. At $3.00 or less per spring, PosterSpring is not only the most effective system, it is also the most affordable to purchase, install and operate.

Q: How would you summarize the PosterSpring?

A: It really is a great product and we are not aware of a better system.
