4 Most Popular Banner Stands for Trade Shows

Not all banner stands are created equal. You’ll find many different types, but not all of them are perfect for everyone. Choosing the right type of banner stand helps you cut unnecessary expenses, while also making sure you’re not compromising on the quality.

What banner stand you should choose depends on your location, booth size, target audience, marketing message and other factors, says an expert at New Jersey Banner Stands, a leading provider of banner printing services in NJ. Before you start looking for display stands, here is a rundown of the four popular types of banner stands and their uses.  

1. Retractable Banner Stands

Also known as roll-up banner display stands, this type is ideal for marketers who want to save time on the setting-up and taking-down of their trade show banners. When not in use, the banner is rolled up and slipped into the base of the stand. Installing the banner is easy and quick. All you need is to pull out the banner from the base and fix it to the pole. When taking down the banner, simply remove it from the back pole and let it automatically retract into to the base. One benefit of using them is they keep your custom posters safe, when not in use. However, they are usually heavier than most other types of banner stands, which is why shipping them from place to place could be more expensive.

2. X Stands

As the term suggests, this type of banner stands come with an X-shaped backing. They are easy to install, lightweight and portable. Another advantage of X banner stands is that they allow you to change your graphic quickly and conveniently. You can easily carry these stands with you, without having to spend a lot in shipping. Most banner printing companies offer a carrying case for X banner stands. The case usually comes with a separate compartment for each component of the banner.

3. L Stands

If you want to use X stands but don’t have enough space in your trade show booth, consider using an L banner stand. L stands occupy much less space but look no less professional than their X-shaped counterparts. Like X stands, L stands are easy and quick to install and more affordable than most other types of banner stands. It is also convenient and affordable to ship them across cities.

4. Telescopic Stands

Also known as step and repeat banner, this type of banner stand comes with a separate telescopic pole where you can attach your banner. Whether you want to use small or large format printing, it is possible to adjust the backdrop hardware to your banner size. Another benefit of telescopic stands is they allow you change your graphic as many times as you want, without much hassle. You can buy them for both indoor and outdoor uses. Telescopic stands are typically freestanding; and they don’t have a base. You just need to unroll and firmly attach the banner to the back pole.

Finding the right type of banner stands for your exact needs doesn’t have to be intimidating. All you need is to know what type of trade shows you usually attend, your typical booth size, your transportation needs.
