Retractable Banner Stand – Your Design and Preference
Because there are a large variety of retractable banner stands, choosing the right one can be tricky. Like all other banner stands, retractable stands come in all assortment of shapes and sizes. Some retractable stands are designed with lights that attached to the top frame to give light to your advertisement. Others are created with legs that are designed to allow the banner to rest flush against a vertical surface, such as a wall.
Some stands are made with a specific type of metallic alloy, called anodized aluminum – a electrochemical process that strengths the metals while giving it a light weight characteristic. All of these settings are determined by the price that you are willing to spend. However, how do you choose which is best for your particular environment or product?
It is first important to determine the size of the banner that you need. How large do you want your advertisement to be? How much room do you have to work with? Banner sizes range from 24” (inches) to about 5’ (feet). Because the retractable banner requires the rolling mechanism, it is important to consider the additional width that you banner will require. The minimum width of any retractable banner is approximately 12”. It is also important to remember that the larger your banner is, the more frame members you might be required to assemble.
Large banners, ranging from 3’ – 5’ will require additional frames to support the larger height. Although a retractable banner is fairly inexpensive (should you choose a single banner stand) it is wise to invest in a quality retractable banner that is designed for curl resistance. Because the banner will be stored when not in use, the vinyl material (if this is your chosen material) can wrinkle or warp over time. To prevent this, it will be necessary to either purchase a fabric banner or a higher quality vinyl material.
