Banner Stand Q & A

Banner stands are a type of banner sign that stands up on its own using a specific type of stand. Banner stands can be both retractable and non-retractable, and are used to capture attention in areas with high foot traffic.

Banner stands are frequently used at trade shows, simply because of the setup, the way trade show booths are designed, and more. As such, the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. There is no inherent difference between the two, other than terminology. Banner stands can be used in all different types of settings, not just at trade shows, so the term “trade show display” can be misleading. In addition, there are other types of trade show displays. But often you’ll see both terms used as though they are referring to the same type of sign.

It depends on the type of banner stand. There are set sizes, simply given the limitations of some of the stands that come with the banners, but there are still many options if you have a custom size you need as long as the right stand is available. Examples of sizes include 31.5 x 83.35 in, 31 x 71 inches, etc. Most are going to be within that range. Custom banner stand sizes can be a bit more difficult, but may be possible. Please contact us to find out more.

There are several different types of material for banner stands, most of which involve vinyl. Options include blockout vinyl, dye-sublimation fabric, and laminated gloss. Each of these has their own benefits, weaknesses, and different price points, so it is best to call us to discuss what you need.

Retractable banner stands tend to be more durable, especially when compared to non-retractable banner stands. Of course, the caveat is that the banner stand will need to be cared for, but the material is specifically designed to be opened and closed often.

Not really. Banner stands should simply be wiped down gently with a washcloth. For difficult to clean areas, you can also add a gentle soap. Consider testing it on a small section of the banner first. More severe stains may be tough to clean. Contact us with any questions.
