Retractable Banner Stands
Retractable banner stands are generally considered to be the easiest and most convenient banner stands for tradeshows, which is why they have become the most popular style of trade show banner stand, but they also make great retail displays. They are very popular for promotional displays in stores, shopping malls, theaters, airports, and conventions. Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, what makes a banner retractable is a mechanism that winds the banner onto a roller in the base when the banner is lowered. Generally it's a spring loaded mechanism but some of our high-end retractable banner stands use a different system that has no springs at all. In every case, you simply pull up the retractable banner from the base, and attach the top rail on the banner to the top of a support pole. Some very wide models have two support poles, and while those can be set up by a single person, it's easier for two people. For most models, a single person can easily set up a retractable banner stand in under 1 minute. Putting them away is just as quick and easy. You lift the top rail off the support pole, carefully lower the banner back into the base, and put the pole and base back into it's travel bag.
We offer a wide range of retractable banner stand models so that we have styles and sizes to fit every need and budget. Even our cheap banner stands are an excellent value for the money and are better made than competing products costing twice as much. In addition to selling the major brand name models at excellent prices, we also offer our own models of banner stands. The Budget Roll Up, Econo Stand, QuickSilver Pro, Expo Pro, and Sterling are manufactured specifically for us which allows us to offer the features we want in each model. Features like a range of widths, lever lock telescopic poles, adjustable tension control, or banner mounting that requires no adhesives or special treatments are the types of things our models have that are missing from competing products in their respective price ranges. Because we found these features were either not available at all, or only available on high end stands costing two to three times more, we decided to have these stands manufactured to our specifications so we could offer these popular and convenient features in stands that were more affordable. Having them manufactured specially for us unables us to sell them directly to our customers with out extra markups, which is why we can offer them at such excellent prices.
Unlike other companies, we provide honest ratings of all our banner stand models. Most of our competitors have copied our rating system for banner stands, but instead of providing honest, accurate information, they alter the ratings and even misrepresent the features of other stands to make their models, or the models they need to sell, look like the best options. We don't do that and our feature listings are accurate and our ratings are based on actual personal experience with all of these products. What most companies sell as "Luxury", "Deluxe", or "Premium" banner stands are what we call Standard quality. The banner stands we rate as Standard quality are good products, but there is a definite distinction in quality and features between those and the stands we rate as Premium or Professional. Don't be misled by ratings from other companies, as not all stands that are advertised as Premium actually are. Most of those stands we would rate as Standard, or even Economy, so consider the price of the stand and the features as well as any ratings you see elsewhere in helping to determine the actual quality of a particular banner stand, and as always, feel free to contact us for help or recommendations.
