Buyers Guide - Types of Banner Stand

What is a retractable banner stand?

A trade show favourite, also known as a pull up or roller banner, this freestanding display comprises a base with an interior spring mechanism. This creates tension to pull the graphic into the base when it is not in use and keeps the banner under tension when it is put up. In effect, it is an upside down Venetian blind. They are generally available as single or double sided displays.

+ Simple to use
+ Economical marketing
+ Graphic rolls up and is protected in the base

- Normally have to be sent away to have graphic replaced
- In cheap versions, the spring could lose tension
- Using the wrong graphics could cause them to curl

Graphic type:
Economy versions will use printed PVC, whereas more expensive models will use a blackout polyester with a protective overlaminate.

What is a replaceable cassette banner stand?

A more expensive version of the standard retractable banner, with the added advantage of a replaceable cassette. This allows you to change the message easily as the graphic simply pops out of the base.

+ Easy to change graphics
+ You could have multiple cassettes with different marketing messages
+ No need to return the whole unit to have the graphic changed

- More expensive than standard banner displays
- A little heavier on average

Graphic type:
Replaceable cassette banners are printed onto an Opal Jet polyester based material which delivers exceptional print quality. It will be finished with an anti-glare protective overlaminate.

When to use an outdoor banner stand?

Plenty of people use their indoor banners outdoors, but this significantly impacts the durability of the stand. A little bit of wind and they will blow over, tie them down and the pole will bend or break. Stands specific to outdoor use are designed to put up with all manner of weather conditions. They can either be a roller pull up type or tensioned types. Both will incorporate a heavy base and stronger poles, as well as a mechanism for allowing the wind to spill from the banner.

+ Withstands the wind
+ Weatherproof stand material
+ Weatherproof graphics

- Costs more than indoor versions
- Heavier base for stability

Graphic type:
PVC banner material is used since it is waterproof and can be rolled up.

What is a tensioned banner stand?

A simple alternative to retractable models, also known as X banners. Tensioned banners are lighter and cheaper than retractables, making them ideal for promotions that need larger orders. They don't have any moving parts and changing the banner is simplicity itself, but they take a couple of minutes more to put up.

+ Lightweight
+ No moving parts
+ Cheaper than roll up banners
+ Easy to change the graphics

- Takes slightly longer to put up than a retractable

Graphic type:
PVC banner material is used for the majority of tensioned graphics.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can graphics be printed double sided?
Not all stands can take printed double sided banners. If you select double sided in the refine section, you will see which models can take double sided graphics.

How long do the stands last?
That depends on how much use the banner stand gets and the model. One influencing aspect is how much the stand is used and how well it is looked after. Each product page will tell you what guarantee the hardware has.

Are they for indoor and outdoor use?
The majority of our models are for indoor use. For outdoor use we would always advise that you buy an outdoor banner stand, which can withstand the elements.

Does assembly require tools?
No, they are all tool free assembly.

Is the banner easily scratched?
Our banners are scratch resistant, but all graphics need to be looked after to some degree. PVC banners are printed with scratch resistant latex inks and all other banners are protected with a scratch-resistant laminate.

Does the base protect it during transportation?
On the retractable type, the graphic rolls up into the base and is totally protected. On tensioned models the graphics can be stored and transported in a carry bag.

Can you design it for me?
Yes, we have set price design packages starting at just £10.99. Alternatively, we have a free online design tool. Choose a template and personalise it online in a matter of minutes.

How quick is delivery?
It depends on the product model and how quickly you approve the artwork proof that is sent to you. Most stands take between 3-5 working days. If you have a tight deadline it's always worth calling, if you are in a rush we will bend over backwards to help you.
