Retractable banner stands require very little time and effort to set up. Because of this, they are our best selling pop up display. The aluminum base (which also stores and protects the graphic) comes with an extension pole that supports the banner once fully retracted. The display works not unlike a window shade; all you have to do is extend the pole and raise the banner. Since they are not mounted to anything, strategic placement is possible.
This can be an advantage if you are promoting a new product inside a store or exhibiting at a trade show. Aim the banner stand at oncoming traffic for maximum exposure. Once the promotion is over, the graphic retracts into the base and the entire unit can be quickly packed away in a small carrying case for easy transportation. There are many retractable banner stand models to choose from, with black or silver anodized finishes and a wide selection of available widths. Some models even include optional spotlights to further highlight your banner and attract attention.
Non-retracting displays, sometimes called pole banner stands, are generally less expensive than the retractable models. They don't require a spring-loaded mechanism inside a base, however there are advantages and disadvantages to this. The overall display consists of the graphic, supported poles, and a simple cross-type base which comes in at considerably less cost than the retractable series. Thanks to their lighter weight, they are easier to travel with and ideal for trade show use. In addition, most of the support poles are adjustable, enabling some flexibility in setting the overall height. On the other hand, setting up is a bit more time-consuming and since there is no aluminum base to store and protect the banner, care must be taken when transporting the valuable graphic (the replacement cost for the digital print far outweighs the cost of the banner stand itself).
But just like their retractable stand brethren, non-retractable stands come in all kinds of sizes and styles, probably more so in terms of variety.
Retractable banner stands, also called roll up banner stands are the most popular banner stands for trade shows because of how quickly and easily they can be set up and taken down. Generally speaking, people have more patience when it comes to setting up their exhibit space than they do when the show is over and it's time to take things down. People are often tired and rushed at the end of any show and can fully appreciate how easy retractable banner stands can be taken down and packed away.
Compared with other options for trade show displays, retractable banner stands can be relatively inexpensive and come in wide range of sizes, styles, brands and levels of quality. This makes them extremely versatile as there is almost always a model that can fit each particular need.
