You’ve designed the perfect banner, complete with your message and logo, and
it’s ready to print. Everything is in order, but there’s one more thing to
do before you can put your new banner on display – and it has a lot to do
with how you display it.
Deciding which type of banner stand is right for your business comes down to
a few simple details. This article is to outline those details so you can
make the best decision on how to effectively display your banners and
increase sales with signage.
X Banner Stands
X banner stands (so called because they hold the banner on four corners in a
frame that looks like an X) are a good option for a banner stand that’s high
on functionality. They’re durable, simple to use, and easy to move around
given their lightweight frame. They’re generally less expensive than
retractable banner stands, and are a great choice when you need to set up
and take down your banners frequently. For example, if you plan on setting
up a trade show or
business expo booth
at various events throughout the year, and need a display that’s highly
mobile, then the x frame banner would be a perfect option for you. Another
advantage of this stand: replacement of the banner is easy. If you want to
change out your graphics, you can simply order a new banner and swap it out
on the stand without any additional help.
So, if you want an affordable, durable stand that’s easy to use, move and
store, the x banner stand is the choice for your banner.
Retractable Banner Stands
The other popular option is a retractable banner stand. Retractable banner
stands offer an easy set up: simply pull the banner upward from its
retractable bottom and attach it to the pole included in the case.
standard retractable banners
are an economical option and are great for stationary displays that don’t
need to be set up and taken down frequently. If you plan on moving your
banner to various locations, then we recommend upgrading to the heavy duty
retractable which offers a more premium stand that can withstand some wear.
One of the best features of the retractable banner stand (and why they’re so
popular) is their sleek, low profile design. The banners themselves are
printed on no-curl PET vinyl, which is a premium material that prints very
smoothly. The stands have a minimalist design and take up very little floor
space, which is ideal for
trade show booths, restaurants, and lobby displays that need compact banner stands.
Overall, they offer a sleek, modern appearance. Retractable stands are also
a superior option for creating backdrops by combining multiple banners to
form a larger image. See our
10’ banner wall display
for an example of this.
With these details in mind, you can select the banner stand that best fits
the purpose of the banner you’ve designed. As always, your U.S. Press
