How to Reuse Vinyl Banners


Churches, other nonprofits and businesses use vinyl banners as inexpensive mobile signs. Banners created for a one-time event, or a group that changes its name, can become obsolete. When this happens, it is desirable to find a way to reuse them so they do not go to waste. It is usually possible to recycle a vinyl banner. If it has removable letters, you can peel them off. If you cannot remove the letters, you can display your new message on the back of the banner.

Things You'll Need

  • Overhead projector
  • Transparencies of the alphabet
  • Label paper, standard size or larger
  • Poster markers
  • Several rolls of 3-inch clear packing tape
  • Scissors
  • Yardstick or level

How to Reuse a Vinyl Banner

Tips & Warnings

  • If you do not have an overhead projector you can use banner creating software.
  • Label paper comes in standard-size sheets that you can run through a printer.
  • Positioning the letters correctly is the most difficult part of this project. Once you have taken the backing off of the letters and adhered them to the vinyl it is not easy to remove them for repositioning. When you are taping, use shorter strips instead of longer ones. You will find it easier to keep the tape taut and apply the tape without creating creases. This will add to the overall polished look of your banner.
