"I purchased this banner to celebrate my daughter's first birthday. We hung it outside of the hall so our Party guest will know where the location was. We also attached a sharpie to it with string, and all of the guest signed it with there well wishes for the birthday girl. So it served for two functions. We now have a durable, lasting keepsake for our daughter to look at when she is older. Also, the banner came just as it was advertised, and the shipping was very quick. I will defintely return for my other party needs."
