Let’s Talk Retractable Banner Stands

We here at EXHIB-IT! would like to think that banner stand displays are the Spider-Man of the trade show world. They are versatile, stylish, and move quickly from space to space as needed (no venom required)! Not to mention they are available in a sleek and modern design. Easy to transport, they make the perfect addition to your tradeshow. What a great option for adding more advertising graphics to any space!


What is a Banner Stand?

Banner stands, either retractable or roll up, are lightweight units with a graphic cartridge. On average, they weigh less than 12 lbs. and have convenient carry case options. We use a high quality curl resistant film or 10 oz. black backed vinyl for durability of your graphic print. Both media work well and are lasting with proper care. The graphics are rolled up or retract back into the cartridge unit and are easily replaced when needed. Some banner stands offer the ability to interchange graphic cartridges allowing you to have many graphics for one base hardware unit. This allows the banner stand graphic image to be changed to fit the event and audience. Banner stands come in a variety of sizes from 24”- 60”+ wide and they can range in height from table top (30”) to over 90!”  So, as you can see, they are a versatile and customizable product.
