"I was truely amazed how sturdy this banner was. I thought it was going to be more of a flimsy paper banner, but it was a light-weight sturdy plastic. It held up well hanging in the 30MPH dry winds and didn't melt in the 105 degree heat either. My friends asked where I got it becauset they liked it and are interested in buying similar banners for their kids. I would reccommend this product to anyone."
