Or just standard paracord-style rope.

Carabiners can just be unscrewed

2017-11-19 20:28:57 UTC  

Pro tip: actually get a good photo of the banner and it'll last forever on the internet.

2017-11-19 20:29:02 UTC  

Looking at you, @Goodest_Boy

2017-11-19 20:29:03 UTC  

honestly just buy a 1x2 cut it into section and staple them to the bottom

2017-11-19 20:29:37 UTC  

its cheap adds weight and keeps the banner taught

2017-11-19 20:30:11 UTC  

Water bottles with zip ties going around them and through the banner, with duct tape over the cuts in the banner to keep it from tearing is best.

2017-11-19 20:30:22 UTC  

For cheapness, ofc

2017-11-19 20:30:45 UTC  

For quality you could also get a PCV pipe of some kind.

Thin(ish) wooden dowel rods from a Home Depot type place.

2017-11-19 20:31:10 UTC  

Main focus is to make sure *nothing falls from the banner onto traffic*. *That's bad opics, causing a pile up on the highway*

I tried making a banner tpday 😂

2017-11-19 20:42:59 UTC  

that over spray makes it look edgy af

2017-11-19 20:43:50 UTC  

Im worried people will think its about veganism

2017-11-19 20:45:33 UTC  

for the size you are using you can get a sample size flag blue paint and a 2in roller and have a clean look for around 10$

2017-11-19 20:48:15 UTC  

1. We never use red paint
2. Stencils way too small
3. The idea said "the rest", not everyone
4. Material looks way too thin

2017-11-19 20:48:51 UTC  

Get some thicker material, bigger stencils, and try a bucket of flag blue paint, and a roller and all that. Will make it way better, and you can use that bucket for dozens more banners.

2017-11-19 20:49:32 UTC  

Really good effort, though. All things considered. It has a lot of character, that one.

2017-11-19 20:51:00 UTC  

Haha yeah we were looking at all the materials and probably thought it wouldnt work put but we tbought it be good to do it to figure some stuff out

2017-11-19 20:52:03 UTC  

Trial and error is key

2017-11-19 20:52:22 UTC  

I ruined my first banner

2017-11-19 20:54:09 UTC  

Yeah i feel that. Could you resend the guide?

2017-11-19 22:37:53 UTC  

It's pinned

2017-11-19 22:40:38 UTC  

in activism?

2017-11-19 22:50:01 UTC  

@Thomas Ryan Yeah I'm not seeing it pinned in activism. I think it was there at one point, but it disappeared. If you wouldn't mind throwing it up again, I'll make sure I save it where I'll remember it this time.

2017-11-19 23:02:33 UTC  

Will do when I get home

2017-11-19 23:02:43 UTC  

Out with the DFW crew

2017-11-19 23:02:54 UTC  

Thank you

2017-11-19 23:07:14 UTC  

Doing a banner drop?

2017-11-19 23:08:05 UTC  

We sort of boned this first one, but yeah, hopefully we'll nail the next one and do it.

2017-11-20 00:00:25 UTC  


2017-11-20 00:01:03 UTC  

Next one will be alot better 😂 but glad we got the hang of it today
