Choosing the Right Banner Stand for you Posted by: by Andrew Pocock Deciding on the perfect banner stand for you can be a difficult decision. With so many options, it can be hard to know which one is best suited for your needs. Here’s a quick guide to help you get started. 1. Graphics The most important and exciting decision you’ll make about your banner stand is what you want to display. Whether you have your own artwork ready, or you need some help, there are options to suit everyone. There’s even a fun DIY option using our online design tool that helps to keep costs down, while developing your own unique messages. 2. Roller or tension? Deciding on how your graphic will be displayed will affect how easily it is to put up and down, and how the graphics can be transported. Most people choose to use roller banner stands. These units have graphics that roll out from the base unit and can be assembled in seconds. The graphic is also safely stored in the base unit for transportation, meaning that it won’t be easily damaged. However, most units will need to be sent back to us if your graphic needs to be changed in the future. If you need to change your messages regularly, then a tension banner stand might be the best option for you. These units have a separate graphic, which means that you can easily swap graphics. The graphic needs to be physically attached to the tension system, which pulls it taut. They can be a very attractive solution and generally take up little space but are more prone to being damaged, so care needs to be taken when setting up and taking down the banner. 3. Base vanity With your eyes drawn to your stunning messages, choosing the right base may seem like an afterthought. But with a choice of styles, it’s important to ensure that your base unit compliments your messages and your values! Some base units will have feet that will protrude to provide stability, whereas other units will have hidden feet. Choosing base units with hidden feet can make your message look like it’s coming from the floor and provide a higher-end look to your display. 4. Size matters! When it comes to events, size really does matter. It’s important to carefully consider the space that you have available to set up your banner stand to be able to choose the right solution for you. From a miniature tabletop sized banner to 2 metre widescreen banners, there’s a size for every occasion!
