Retractable Stands for Tradeshow Displays
If you need a display stand for a trade show, convention, conference, or any other event, we highly recommend looking into our retracting banner stands.
Retractable Stands for Retail Use
These retracting banner stands are a great option for in-store promotions. Also, they are bright, tall and will attract potential buyers. If you walk through any retail store, you will see a handful of these signs.
Economy Retractable Banners
Economy retractable banners are great for anyone on a budget looking for a cheap or a short-term use. If you are exhibiting less than 20 times, these economy stands are a great option. These come in single-sided only and are a final dimension of 30.5″x80″. Furthermore, these come with a carrying case, a custom printed vertical banner and stand.
Premium Retractable Banners
Our Premium retractable banner stands are the best option for anyone who plans to use their banner stands for years to come. The hardware separates this premium stand from the economic ones. They in several different widths of 2′, 3′ ,4′ ,5′ and 8′ wide and 92″ tall. Also, some people refer to these as silver step banners.
Table Top Retractable Banners
These are great for any tabletop displays. If you have a smaller trade show booth, then a tabletop retractable banner is probably the perfect option. These are generally single sided and 36″ tall.
Materials and Printing Process
For durability and quality, we print directly to all fabric, vinyl, and polypropylene.
Fabric Retractable Banners
Fabric offers the nicest look for your prints. Also, our vertical fabric banners are printed using a dye sublimation (dye sub) printing process. This process means that the UV ink actually goes through a thermal heat process and is absorbed into the tension fabric. This means the banner will last much longer than traditional vinyl. Fabric stands also reduce glare in bright events like conferences and tradeshows and are much easier on the eye. We can also use fabric for single sided or double sided trade show displays.
Vinyl Retractable Banners
The most cost-effective material for vertical banner printing is 13 mil vinyl banners. This is not your traditional Avery wrap vinyl with adhesive or vinyl banner, it has no adhesive backing and has a very smooth finish. It generally comes with a gray backing to eliminate light and create an opaque print. This is also our most popular material for all banner stands including non-retractable banner stands.
Retractable Banner Stand Printing
All of our portable banners stands and pull up banners are printed on state of the art Mutoh Valuejet 8 color printers with eco-solvent ink. Moreover, Mutoh vinyl printers have 3 yr outdoor durability ink. All of our vertical banners are cut with knifeless tape on an industrial routing machine for the best possible quality.
Roll Up Banner Stands Color Options
While the printed banner is available in any color, the stands are only available in 2 colors. Our options are available in anodized silver aluminum and also black coated aluminum. If you are looking for custom colors, we can have them painted to any color.
Retractable Banner Sizes
The most common size is 36″x92″ for our premium banner stands. If you are looking for a large retractable banner stand size we would recommend a 48″x92″ stand. Also, for our economy banner stand sizes, we recommend the 33.5″x80″ stands.
Retractable Banner Shipping and Storage
If taken care of properly, your vertical banner and retractable banner stand should last for many years. When collapsing the stand, make sure you do it slowly to avoid scratching. If you are shipping your banners, make sure to put the carrying case in a cardboard box before you ship. Although we use a clamp system to support the vertical banner, sometimes the adhesive that holds the banner can become weak over time. Make sure you always test the setup of your display banners before you attend your show or conference.
Double Sided Retractable Banners
We can produce these for any event. Some of our clients utilize only 1 side at a time for 2 single-sided prints in 1 set of hardware while other use the double-sided vertical banner option so clients see them from both sides.
Outdoor Retractable Banners
If you are looking for a verticle outdoor retractable banner we recommend buying the correct hardware. Our favorite brand of outdoor retractable banner stands is a company called Expand. The hardware weighs over 50 lbs and the stand can be used in very high winds. They also sell a double-sided. Also, the product is called an Expand QuickScreen and the price is about $1000 each.
How to setup Retractable Banners
These are extremely easy to set up. Simply remove the banner stand from the provided carrying case. Extend the height adjustable graphic from the stand. Insert and extend the telescopic vertical pole into the base. Clip the vertical banner to the top of the pole when it is fully extended and you are good to go! When you are ready to leave simply remove the custom banner from the hardware pole and place back into your carry bag.
