The front porch banners you see on many Montford porches, donning a hummingbird or an acorn, haven’t been available for sale for some time, but we’ve heard a lot of interest.
We have new banners for sale. Have a look. Click on each banner for a larger view.
There are three colors to choose from, one is predominantly red, one green, and the third a mustard yellow. New banners are larger than the last two—they are 24 x 36 inches with a dowel through the top sleeve for hanging
Made in the USA
This just in from the printer: We pride ourselves on printing practically everything on US textiles and substrates. Made with robust weather-resistant woven material, and printed with UV inks, these bold colors will stay true.
The acrylic polyester awning fabric is made by Graniteville (graniteville.net) in the Spartanburg, SC plant. Much of it also comes from Glen Raven Mills in Glen Raven, NC (glenraven.com). The fabric is printed by Downtown Graphics Network, Inc. Salisbury, NC (dgninc.com). And the sewing, grommet, and finishing operation is done by Fisher Athletic across town (fisherathletic.com).
How to Order
The banners sell for $40 each. Go to the website Montford.org to view the three color options.
