Static tensioned banner stands


  • Static banner stands are the lightest banner stands available.
  • They are usually the cheapest stands available on the market, especially when purchased in large quantities.
  • These stands can be picked up and repositioned without any effort or fuss.


  • This type of banner stand is best for temporary display.
  • Assembly is a little more complex than a roller banner stand and may take longer to do.

Roller banner stands


  • Roller banner stands are one of the easiest exhibition displays to transport and set up.
  • These banner stands can be assembled in under a minute.
  • The print is protected inside the base when not in use.
  • Roller banner stands can be used over and over again.
  • There are various sizes available from 85cm to 3.2m wide.
  • Roller banner stands are available in both single and double sided versions.
  • A large sized banner stand can replace the need for a pop up stand at a much lower cost.


  • Larger roller banner stands may require special transportation requirements.
  • Banner stands over 2.4m wide will require more than one person for assembly.

Outdoor / external banner stands


  • The printed graphic is weather and fade resistant.
  • The base can be weighted for increased stability.
  • Construction of the stand is extremely durable for outdoor conditions.


  • These displays have a smaller print than indoor banner stands.

Pop Up Stands

Pop up stands are basically panels fitted almost seamlessly onto a collapsible frame. The frame 'pops up' during set up and can be transported simply to any exhibition. Only one person is required to set up a pop up stand. The graphic panels are printed onto high quality, tear resistant inkjet media and overlaminated.
