Packaging Instructions

  • All metal grommets, hooks, hanging hardware, tape, etc. must be removed from the banner material prior to shipment for recycling. HDPE based banner holders such as Banner Ups (www.bannerups.com) do not need to be removed prior to return to HP.
  • Banner material can be packed in any cardboard box strong enough to hold the weight being shipped. A shipping box must be of a reasonable size for transportation via UPS. Examples of maximum box sizes appropriate for banners and that meet UPS guidelines are:
    1. 48" long x 18" wide x 18" high
    2. 60" long x 18" wide x 12" high
    3. 72" long x 12" wide x 12" high
    For more information about the UPS 130-inch measurement limit go to http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/resources/ship/packaging/weight_size.html.
  • The maximum shippable weight of a single box is 75 pounds. If you have more than 75 pounds of material then it must be split into separate boxes and the shipping label request process must be repeated. If you have an extremely large amount of banner material to recycle, please contact customer support for assistance.
  • Additional packing materials (for example bubble wrap, packing peanuts, newspaper, etc.) must not be included. The box should only contain banner materials.
  • Tape all seams with packing tape to ensure the package can be transported without breaking or opening.
  • Weigh the box and have weight ready to provide at the next step of the process. Box weight is required to create a shipping label.

Shipping Instructions

  • At the end of this process you will be provided a pre-paid shipping label.
  • With packing tape, securely affix the pre-paid shipping label to the box. Ensure that tape does not cover any information on the label.
  • Hand your completed package to any United Parcel Service driver, or drop it off at an authorized UPS location. See www.ups.com/dropoff?loc=en_US for a UPS Store, drop box, or retail alliance locations near you.
