Wind Slits are slit cuts into the banner with the intent of giving the wind a way to blow through the banner and reduce the stress on the banner or on how the banner is installed. These cuts are made in the shape of a half circle or half-moon. Wind Slits are positioned with discretion to not interfere with any main or important text in the design of the banner.
