Vertical Banner Stands = Great Marketing / Sales Tools!

Banners are a really great marketing / sales sign option, especially when paired with vertical banner stands. I love banners! They can be used indoors as well as outdoors in a wide variety of applications. Here are a few reasons I love vinyl banners:

  • They look great
  • They work well indoors and outdoors
  • They are easy to transport (by rolling up)
  • They are relatively low cost
  • They are available in any size
  • Banners can be double or single sided
  • They have multiple low cost stand options

When dealing with large, free standing signs there has to be some sort of support system. In general these types of stands and frames can be expensive or hard to set up and usually aren’t easily portable. Because banners offer some unique features, we have seen a variety of unique banner support systems hit the market.

I would like to highlight two vertical banner support systems that are great for indoor advertising or marketing. These portable banner stands are low cost, easy to set up, and worth their weight in gold when it comes to getting your message noticed.

X Banner Stand

The X Banner Stand is an X shaped stand made out of 5 fiberglass poles, similar to tent poles. There are many versions of the X Banner Stand with slight style variations, but they all work the same. 4 arms extent to hold each corner of the banner tight and wrinkle free. A 5th pole angles back, giving the banner stability.

This banner stand solution is very low cost but does it’s job very well. All 5 legs are connected to a center hub. When not in use an X Banner Stand can be folded up into a small bag that weighs almost nothing.

Though the width can be as small as 24 inches, the recommended banner size to give you the most visibility is 70″ tall by 32″ wide. to keep your banner looking great it is always a good idea to roll the banner up when not in use, as this will keep your banner from having fold lines in it. I like to store the banner in a plastic tube to keep the edges nice.

Pros:

  • Low Cost
  • Small footprint
  • Adjustable Width
  • Banner is not connected to stand


Cons:

  • Banner needs to be stored separately
  • Takes a few minutes to set up

We recently had the privilege of working with a really cool new upstart GR8 LKS. They were in need of a banner + stand solution that could be used in a multitude of scenarios. They ended up getting an X Banner Stand and a beautiful banner highlighting their brand logo and company mission. Their tagline is “apparel for change” because for each retail dollar spent they will spend 1 minute cleaning the water and shoreline around the Great Lakes. Check out their online store here.

Retractable Banner Stand

Retractable Banner Stands are unique in that they also offer a way to store your banner when not in use.  The banner is connected to a system inside the base that uses mechanics to automatically roll the banner up inside of itself. A top rail is also connected to the banner. The 78″ x 32″ banner is set up by unrolling the banner from the base and connecting an adjustable pole between the stand base and the top rail. Since the base is designed to automatically roll the banner up inside of itself, the banner is pulled tight and held wrinkle free using the tension created! The base also features 2 “swing out” stabilizing feet to keep the banner stand upright.

When you remove the adjustable pole the banner automatically rolls up inside the banner stand base for safe keeping. This system also comes with a small bag to carry and protect the stand base and adjustable pole.

While this stand takes a little more set up time initially, once the banner is connected to the base and top rail this stand system can be set up in under 30 seconds.

Pros:

  • Small footprint
  • Keeps banner rolled up
  • Sets up very quickly once put together


Cons:

  • Higher cost

Royal Servants is an arm of Reign Ministries. Every summer they take American students overseas to over 15 countries where they visit orphanages, build houses and schools, teach English to children and put on public shows and share the gospel of Jesus Christ. They needed a Banner Stand System that they could bring to schools and churches to promote their summer mission trips. They ended up going with a Retractable Banner Stand and an awesome banner that captures your attention. Learn more about Royal Servants here.
