"I ordered this banner for my son's first birthday last week. First of all, it is a Super Why theme -- a theme you can't find ANYWHERE else for birthday supplies. Also, it came with metal grommets on each corner to hang the banner and it was a laminated type of fabric banner. The day of his party, we went to the local Party City to get balloons filled and noticed they have a new banner/stationary ordering area. Their $20 banner was just paper! Their $40 banner was laminated paper. I do believe that the banner I got was superior to any other product I could have purchased! We got so many compliments! And, I told them where we got it, for sure! :)"
