If you are involved in a business that involves trade shows, business meetings, presentations or any type of exhibition you need a banner stand. A banner stand allows you look professional and draw attention to what you want the customer or other persons to notice. It puts the details out there at eye level and draws attention to your display.
Stand Out in the Crowd
A good advertising person knows the advantage of standing out in a crowd and a banner stand allows you to do that. Banner stands are highly portable and allow you to create an eye popping display in very little space and on short notice if necessary. There are so many different types of banner stands available you will have no problem choosing one that fits your needs. The display options are endless when using these types of displays.
Choosing Your Banner Stand
Before you chose which type of stand to buy you need to think of your company’s, or your personal needs. You have to store the banner stand, transport it, set it up and take it down. How often you will be doing that, the space you have to work with and the vehicle you use for transportation will all play into which particular stand you purchase. Whether you do everything yourself or have others to help with the set up can also be a deciding factor. You may be a small one man show who needs something extremely compact and portable or you may work for a large company and need a much larger scaled banner stand. Make sure you fully understand what you need before purchasing one of these stands.
Things to Look For
Banner stands are made up of all types of material these days including aluminum, fiberglass, plastic and wood. The nice thing about some of the newer materials is being lightweight doesn’t mean it isn’t heavy duty, in fact, just the opposite. Some of the more lightweight banner stands are extremely durable and heavy duty while being designed for ease of use. A compact banner stand is a very nice option for most people. It allows you to store it in smaller areas and can be more easily transported. You also want to make sure you can set up and take down the stand efficiently and quickly. The last thing you need is to have to spend hours trying to figure out how to get the stand up correctly. That time would be better spent creating an eye catching display.
And when a long day is over you want to be able to go home as quickly as possible.
Different Types of Stands
There are several different kinds of banner stands including the roll up stand. This pulls down like a film projection screen and then rolls up for easy storage. A scrolling banner stand continually loops displaying different messages. A –frame displays are very nice for outdoor events and are extremely lightweight and portable. The X banner stand and L banner stand are two other types you might consider when purchasing a stand.
