If you’re looking for an enormous retractable banner stand, look no further than the Expand Media Screen XL. It may be hard to visualize using only the images presented online, but this banner stand is absolutely huge. With a maximum width of 47″ and a maximum height of 117″, the Expand Media Screen XL dwarfs the market’s most popular banner stand (31.5″ wide by 78″ high).

These banner stands work extremely well as graphic walls in large open areas. Lining up three to five of these banner stands will create the illusion of a massive wall displaying your company’s branding images. As shown in the image at the left, the Expand Media Screen XL banner stands work very well when hooked together.

Expand Media ScreenExpand Media Screens are high-quality banner stands with a sleek, modern appeal. Finishing touches such as chrome end caps, chrome feet, and stylish design set these banner stands apart as a great solution for any exhibitor. Every Expand Media Screen we sell comes with a lifetime warranty on the hardware, so if anything ever breaks you can rest assured that it will be repaired or replaced in a timely manner.

Expand has manufactured more banner stands than any other company. Although they boast “Swedish Quality”, you’ll notice a “Made in China” sticker on the bottom of every Expand banner stand out there. Unlike other Chinese-made products, Expand banner stands are incredibly high-quality products that are held to rigorous standards. An Expand product feels much more substantial (although not necessarily heavier) when it is held in your hand, and the quality is immediately evident.

Expand made its name by producing the Quickscreen Banner Stand, which is the best-selling banner stand in history. Today, the Media Screen has replaced the Quickscreen as the new banner stand of choice among picky exhibitors.

For years, every banner stand required its own unique lighting system. All that has changed with the newest banner stand light on the market, the Lumina 2 spotlight. This unique light clamps directly to the pole of your banner stand, and nearly all banner stands use an aluminum pole to support the graphic. This means that the light will work with almost any banner stand on the market, regardless of the brand or style.

In addition to the versatility of this banner stand light, the bulbs we provided are very eco-friendly, and can be used at almost any convention center. Every light we sell is UL approved, which means you won’t have to worry about the light being disallowed at your trade show. We are not merely a sales company, we are a trade show marketing firm. Our primary goal is to provide you with products that will make your trade show a success.

Teardrop Outdoor Banners are printed on photo flag fabric, which allows you image to appear on both sides of the fabric without the need for printing twice, which saves your company money. Teardrops work very well when placed in a line (as pictured above), as this lends visual interest to your system.

Excellent Value – Retractable Banner Stands

Banner Stands / 1 Comment

Many exhibitors have massive marketing budgets that can be used to purchase sleek, high-end trade show displays. For the vast majority of businesses, exhibiting is all about getting the most bang for your buck. If you’re looking for value, banner stands are a great way to create a large graphic area without spending thousands of dollars.

Retractable banner stands are lightweight, which results in reduced shipping costs. They can be set up in less than 10 seconds, which drastically reduces your labor costs at the trade show. Also, because your banner stand can be retracted into the base of the display during storage and shipping, your graphic will last for years in its protective shell. Banner stands are great for exhibitors who attend multiple trade shows and need to be constantly moving their exhibit hardware from show to show.

So why buy a retractable banner stand from MODdisplays? Unlike most companies who sell banner stands, we won’t intentionally rip you off. Many companies charge between $250.00 and $500.00 for a banner stand graphic (not even including the hardware), when the graphic costs them less than $50.00 to produce! They do this to cover the costs of repeated printing and production mistakes. At MODdisplays, we believe that WE should pay for our own mistakes instead of passing on the costs to our customers, which is why our least expensive banner stand is the same price that most companies charge just for the banner stand graphic.

If you have questions about our banner stands, give us a call at 877.663.3976 or email We sell the widest selection of Expand Banner Stands (including Quickscreen) and other lightweight, portable banner stand systems. We also carry all the accessories you need such as banner stand lighting and banner shipping cases.

Exhibitors are always looking for an inexpensive way to outfit their 10 x 10 trade show booth with a large back wall graphic. Banner stand walls are a great way to keep costs down without sacrificing a high end look. Our basic banner stand wall package sells for only $825, and comes with three banner stands and three graphics.

Most exhibitors use banner stand walls as if they were designing a single large graphic, because it adds visual interest to the look of the display. You’ve probably seen countless banner stand walls in airport lounges and hotel lobbies because they serve to provide a large, portable visual area for a fraction of the cost of typical graphics.

Allure Banner Stands

Allure banner stands will do more for your exhibit marketing program because of their unique style. A typical retractable banner stand will provide you with a large graphic that is extremely portable, but the Allure banner stand systems will help your graphic stand out in the crowd. At MODdisplays, we offer a number of different options within the Allure family, and each has a unique shape.

The structure of Allure banner stands is formed using aluminum tubing. When you purchase an Allure, the tubing comes shock-corded together for easy assembly. Once the tubing is assembled, simply stretch the durable fabric graphic over the frame and you are ready to exhibit. Most Allure banner stands can be set up in a matter of minutes, which makes it a favorite among exhibitors everywhere.

The Allure banner stand graphic is created using a process called dye sublimation. With this advanced printing technique, your image is essentially burned onto a durable, washable fabric graphic that is guaranteed never to wrinkle or fade for as long as you own your banner stand.  Dye sublimation also allows for very vibrant images, which helps you avoid the “washed out” look that plagues so many banner stands on the market today. If your Allure banner graphic ever becomes dirty, you can wash it in the washing machine to get rid of any grime or dirt.

Graphic Banner Stands

Banner Stands / No Comments

Banner stands are by far the easiest trade show graphic systems to use. They are lightweight, affordable, and have a very low cost of ownership compared with other types of trade show exhibits. Every banner stand we sell can be used independently or can be combined with other banner stands to form a large graphic wall, which allows your company a great deal of flexiblity and plenty of room for expansion.

Typical trade show banner stands come in a number of different types, but two primary types dominate the market. Retractable banner stands and tension pole banner stands each have their own unique advantages, and making a careful and informed choice can result in a much more satisfying purchase.

Retractable Banner Stands

Retractable banner stands use an aluminum base to store your graphic, and the graphic can be quickly pulled up from the base to display your graphic. These trade show banners are usually more durable than tension pole banner stands because the graphic is stored in a protective base.

The retractable banner stand that started it all is the Expand Quickscreen Banner Stand. Since this banner stand hit the market, thousands of copycats have emerged, but the Quickscreen is still a powerful marketing tool that is being puchased by companies nationwide. In general, Expand banner stands are more high-end solutions.

Tension Pole Banner Stands

Tension pole banner stands are usually less expensive than retractable banner stands, but the graphic is less protected. Usually the graphic is rolled in a cardboard tube that is surrounded by a padded canvas bag. This can result in damage in shipping and transportation if proper care is not taken.

Tension pole banner stands usually offer a larger graphic area than standard retractable banner stands. Because the graphic does not retract into a base, it can extend all the way to the floor, giving it a sleek and modern look that many exhibitors appreciate. Tension pole banner stands work especially well as graphic walls because the graphic can extend all the way to the floor. Many tension pole banner stands include magnetic pieces on the profile strips which allow you to attach your banner stands to one another.

All of our trade show banner stands come with pre-mounted graphics, so you never have to worry about mounting the graphic to your display system. In addition, we have added a padded carry bag to every banner stand order to further protect your graphic in shipping and transportation.
