What is a Grommet?

A Grommet is a reinforced eyelet used in banners and other materials to provide a point for attachment.

These metal or plastic rings prevent tearing and wear around the hole, ensuring that your display items hang securely and maintain their aesthetic appeal over time. Grommets are particularly crucial for outdoor advertising materials exposed to elements such as wind and rain. They’re typically used on large-format prints like vinyl banners, where durability is key to effective brand exposure. While specific statistics on grommet use in advertising aren’t readily available, it’s clear that brands investing in outdoor or durable promotional materials consider grommets an essential component of their marketing toolkit.
