Graphic Banner Stands

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.
