Retractable Banners vs. Adjustable Banners: Great for tradeshows and portable advertising.
Retractable banners and adjustable banners are a great asset when you need portable, free-standing ground level advertising. This type of specialty banner is a staple in the tradeshow sign industry because of the versatility of this particular banner sign. Even though retractable banners and adjustable banners fall into the same category, they do have a few slight differences, when it comes to set-up, break down and the actual banner material.
RETRACTABLE BANNERS: These awesome banners are essentially a one-piece sign display system when assembled. Our retractable banners are printed on a polyester based banner material that is more fabric-like and retracts easier than regular banner vinyl. A digitally printed banner is affixed to a roller mechanism, in the bottom base of the banner stand, with the top of the banner placed into a special snap-fit mechanism to hold it taught when assembled. To set up the retractable banner you simply pull the banner up out of the base to the desired height of your graphics, and secure the print in an upright position with a pole system that attaches to the base and the back of the banner itself. When it's time for break-down, unscrew the pole and slowly let the banner retract back down into the base of the stand. Then you just place the poles and base into it's carrying case and off you go! So simple and easy this banner sets up in mere seconds and is worth it's weight in advertising gold.
ADJUSTABLE BANNERS: These banners are a bit more economical than their retractable banner cousins because their make-up is a bit more simple and straight forward. An adjustable banner stand has an actual pre-determined size stand (that can accommodate a small range of sized banners) that needs to be set-up in pieces and then have the banner affixed into place on the stand. These banners are just as easy to set-up and tear-down, but they require just a few more steps, and still offer the portability of the retractable banner at a fraction of the cost. The banner portion of an adjustable banner stand is printed on our QS-XLT vinyl banner or Non-Rip vinyl banner material using your custom graphics or ours.
Both retractable banners and adjustable banners also offer the versatility of interchangeable advertising. You can literally print as many banners as you'd like and use them reciprocally, on the same stand, over and over to display different promotions, events, sales, offers, etc. This feature makes these tradeshow style banners very lucrative to purchase for the long run and also conveys a very sophisticated and professional look.
Bannersontime.com sells both the banners and stands separately, but we recommend that they be purchased together for a proper fit. All our retractable banner stands and adjustable banner stands come with their own personal carrying case for maximum portability.
