My awning is Sunbrella or treated with silicone, what are my options?
Awning fabric may range from old-fashioned canvas to 21st century vinyls and resin compounds. If your awning sample does not stick well, it may be because of a reaction to the finish applied to the awning fabric.
So what can I do to cover over or to replace or add new lettering on the awning (without having to pay for a whole new awning)?
Some solutions listed below may work for your D.I.Y. awning makeover.
The least costly solution is likely to be to order our PaintMask self-adhesive stencils in combination with sign paint like 1-Shot. List of distributors here. Find out more about LetterBank PaintMask here.
This requires painting over the old lettering with a color close to the awning's original or faded color, then using a contrasting color and PaintMask to finish the project.
Next up is our new Awnner™ [Awning/Banner] CoverUps, made for the persistent Do It Yourselfers who want a good-looking result (and a bit of a challenge!). We're still designing and working to make the universal hardware that will allow our Awnner™ CoverUps to work with many kinds of awnings and frames, and to be sufficiently easy to install by a person without the training that sign companies have.
The vinyl or fabric banners used in this process are made to complement or contrast to the awning color for optimal visibility and impact and may be removed easily by a non-professional.
Finally, our rigid signs option allows us to print your graphics onto one or more durable metal panels which can be installed with or without a snap-open frame into the metal frame of your existing awning, allowing for easy exchange of signs and promotions.
