Hi,
I have thought about it for such a long time but I didn´t find a way to correct it on on my own..

"We can spare yourself to order the suspension points, by changing the stand design. The high banner won´t be hanged from the ceiling but will be connected to the stand by the use of metal frames."

Please help me!!!

Thanks

Pamela

What do you mean by "We can spare yourself to order the suspension points, by changing the stand design."?
The remaining sentence?

This sentence is no problem. You just need a different past participle.
"Hanged" comes from a special verb, as in "He was hanged by the neck until dead."

The banner won't be hung from the ceiling. .

This expression is usually used in the imperative: Spare yourself the trouble of coming to my party.
OR You can spare yourself the trouble of etc. (a bit sarcastic in my example)

You need a different expression:
We can save/spare you the trouble of ordering the suspension points. .
OR We can save you from having to order the suspension points.
OR We can save your having to order the suspension points.

I'm a little puzzled by this use of the term "suspension points."
"Point" would normally refer to the location, or locations of some sort of fixture( s ) from which the banner is suspended.
That is, the "point" is not something you would order or purchase. I would say, "The suspension fixtures."

To summarize, it will not be necessary for you to order any fixtures with which to hang the high banner, because they are going to change the stand design. Instead of being hung from the ceiling, the banner will be attached to the stand by metal frames.

The language is not exactly clear as to whether they're offering this as an option, or whether it's a done deal.
Dear Avangi,
thank you so much, it was of help and very clear now.

:-) About "suspension points" I can read this expression everytime I order them on the Fair´s website so I guess it is correct... Anyway thank you so much!!!

Best wishes
Pamela

From the US point of view, "spare" is dated when used in this sense. "Save" is the common choice.

Well, we sometimes use it sarcastically:

Would you like to hear me sing The Star Spangled Banner again? (reply) Spare me!

Also, "The Governor spared his life" is still used.

Thank you for the precisation. it´s clear Emotion: smile
