How To Extend The Life of Your Banner Stand

Banner stands are the perfect portable display solution for a range of industry needs. Whether it’s retail, art exhibitions, trade shows or events, banner stands are a brilliant, cost-effective advertising and promotional tool.

Keeping your banner stand investment looking its best well into the future to extend its life should come as second nature. You wouldn't buy a car and not clean it or get it serviced!

Let’s take a look at some of the easiest and best ways to extend the life of your banner stand, and ways in which to protect it and use it to its best advantage.

Use a protective case for transport and storage

Almost all our models of roller banner stand, fabric banner stand, and larger pop-up exhibition displays be they for indoor or outdoor usage come with either a soft or hard case. Not only is it perfectly sized to your banner stand, but some have extra padded compartments to keep the base, graphic, and pole system separate to prevent scuffs and rubbing whilst in storage.

If over time you have misplaced this or bought the banner stand a while ago which didn't come with a case, we host a full range of graphic cases and carry tubes both for individual banner stands, or larger transport cases like the popular Zenith which can convert into a handy counter at events and exhibitions with its own graphic wrap.

Keep your graphic looking brand new

Putting on a wrinkled shirt can make or break an important first impression, so keeping your graphics looking clean, crease-free and with a high-quality print shows you care about your equipment, customers, and business image.

High-quality print materials that have this crease-resistant ability built into the material itself, or protective laminate are perfect for banner stands that get a lot of wear and tear from being erected and dismantled.

Make sure to take care when retracting your banner stand into its base or cassette. It can whip like a measuring tape, causing the graphic to rip or coil, damaging the material.

If your graphic is starting to look tired or worn, we can offer a full replacement banner stand graphic service, in a range of materials and finishes to suit your business's budget and banner stand model.

Cleaning the hardware and graphic

The base and hardware of your banner stand need to look as good as your graphic! Most hardware is made of strong aluminium, and can benefit from a clean every now and again. Use warm soapy water and a cloth to clean your equipment, but be sure to not soak the base as this may impact your graphic.

Outdoor banner stands will be supplied with a weather-proof graphic that can be wiped down like your hardware, and a hardwearing base that is either pinnacle into the ground with pegs, or with a water or sand fillable base. Make sure if you're at an event ground outside, that you clean off any muck, mud, or grass before storing.

If your graphic is looking great but it's your hardware that needs renewing as its seen damage or disrepair, please contact us and we can offer no-obligation quoting for just the banner stand hardware.
