The variations between different roller banners and stands are several and important ones. From the stands and their stability functions to the actual printed banner itself, there are several important things to consider when selecting a roller banner for your display at a trade show or other event, or for everyday use.
Variations in Stabilizing Mechanisms
The method of stabilizing the roller banner is a vital one. If it is not stable enough, your banner can get overturned and damaged. The variation depends on the quality and price of the stand, as well as aesthetics. You don’t want a stand that looks too utilitarian. But, you want it sturdy enough to function well.
There are stands with stabilizing feet that swivel out to make a cross support. Some have one foot, and others have two. The foot or feet should look as attractive as the stand cassette and poles themselves. You don’t want the foot or feet to be intrusive.
Variations in Cassettes
Cassettes are all spring operated to extend and retract the banner itself. The quality, and cost, determine the ease with which the roller works and the durability of the whole mechanism. Some cassettes are slim and streamlined, others not so much. Some are even have a funky look for style.
Some cassettes are extremely lightweight to facilitate transportation and set up. Others are less so. The cassette may come in a carry case for even more portability.
Variations in Roller Stands
There is a variety in roller stands as well. Some of them pull up, others pull down. Some are made to connect by a pole that the banner hooks on. Others are designed with self-adhesive top rails. Even others are adjustable to allow them to be displayed at different heights to suit the situation. Some are even designed to withstand outdoor display as recommended.
Materials and Fabrics
There is a variety of fabrics for the banner, some even designed for outdoor display. There are light to heavy plastic, vinyl, rubber, and even canvas. Whichever fabric is used, it is important to have it laminated for strength, durability and weather resistance.
There is a selection of materials for the stand as well. Aluminum is the most used, due to its durability, lightweight, and low-cost. There is also a galvanized silver, more costly but beautiful.
