Display Terms: Edition 2, Banner Stands

The bread and butter of the display world, bannerstands offer a simple, easy to use, and cost effective way to get a brand's message across. They come with multiple types of graphic substrates and print methods to accommodate all different types of uses and budgets. Banner stands can be used in a variety of settings from an accent to your larger display, to a stand alone in a lobby display, to a visual for a speaker, to use in conjunction with a table drape. Although they may seem simple, there are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to banner stands and which will suit your needs the best.

Types of banner stands:

      Retractable Banner Stands: the most common banner stand, this banner retracts into the stand with the graphic automatically rolling onto a cassette. They are compact and easy to assemble and withstand more long term wear and tear.
      Spring Back: using tension much like poles in a tent, the spring back banner stand features carbon or aluminum X-style hardware, secured in each corner or at the top and bottom. Perfect for single use and smaller budgets. 
       Telescopic Banner stand Telescopic Banner Stands: graphics contain pole pockets to hang the graphic, and can be customized in height and width.
       Outdoor banner stands: outdoor banner stands usually come with a weighted base or stakes to keep it from blowing over in the wind.


Types of graphics:  
      There are also several different types of fabrics and print methods that you can use with banner stands that offer differing durability and price range.

      Anti-Curl Vinyl Graphic: a standard graphic that is solvent printed, usually less expensive, has a glossy look and is easier to clean.
      Dye-sub Fabric Graphic: more expensive due to the dye-sub printing, has a matte look, and offer a high end feel.

 Additional things to consider when buying banner stands are the type of accessories you can add on and what warranties come with your purchase.

      Warranty: some banner stands come with a lifetime, 5 year or 90 day warranty on the hardware. If you plan to use your banner stand multiple times over the course of a year or two, or plan to use it for many years, it is a good idea to ensure that your banner has a warranty that fits your time frame.
      Additional features: many banner stands come double sided, allowing for greater versatility. Some banner stands also include removable cassettes allowing easily interchangeable graphics without purchasing additional hardware.
      Additional accessories: small accessories that can be added include a light, small shelf and literature holder.

Banner stands are often an economical solution for one time use displays or for a sales agent to easily carry as added visual collateral. There are even mini banner stands that are great for supplying additional information on a table display. (And they're cute too!) So next time you're looking to get a banner stand, use our helpful guide to determine which one is the best fit for you.
