Banner Stands

A Cost Effective Marketing Tool

Banner Stands are a cost-effective branding tool for exhibitions, retail or any display situation. Most commonly for trade shows, exhibitions and retail environments, they are the most widely used branding tool. In its most simplistic form, you can think of a banner stand as a portable, standing banner consisting of a graphic panel, supported by a base and expandable pole to keep the banner upright.

They're also commonly used in office receptions, showrooms, at conference lobbies, on shop floors and at mobile product demonstrations.

We stock the largest range of banner stands in the UK and give you the fastest turnaround, depending on time of day you can supply us with artwork, we have the facility to get you your banner stand within 24 hours.

A Perfect Addition for Trade Shows, Exhibitions, Retail Settings and Point of Sale

Most commonly used for trade shows and exhibitions, pull up banners or stand up banners are an enduring favourite for marketers across the UK. A Banner Stand is essentially a portable, upright banner that is supported by a sturdy base with a pole to hold it up at the back. 

At Creative Solutions we have many different types of Banner Stands available, including indoor banner stands, outdoor banner stands, single or double sided banner stands, as well as a range of shape and sizes.

They are a hugely flexible marketing tool in that they can be set up and packed away easily, and can display any message you want. With all of our printing done in-house, we can work an incredibly fast turnaround to get your banner stand across to you as fast as you need it. 

With so many of these printed banner stands to choose from, how do you know what one is right for you? Luckily, we've written a quick blog including tips to find out what banner stand is best for your requirements, meaning you make the most out of your investment.

The most popular of the range is the Roller Banner Stand. Often called a retractable banner stand or a roll up banner stand, the graphic quite literally rolls down in to the base (sometimes called the cassette) when it's not in use. When it's rolled inside the cassette, it keeps your printed banner protected from damage as well making it easy to transport and move around. 

Banner Stands create a high impact display in whatever size you choose. The sizes range from small discreet desktop banners, to a complete 3 or 4 meter backdrop. The majority of stands have a width of 850mm, but several have the unique ability to join together to create a completely seamless wall display, that can be adapted to work around corners or tricky shapes. 

Here at Creative Solutions we pride ourselves on printing using only the highest quality inks, meaning your graphic is a high definition. vivid and rich display. We will never compromise on this, and believe that by having a high quality display it will create the best impact possible. All of our banner stands are printed in-house, meaning we have complete control over the quality and turnaround time. What's more, we offer replacement graphics for all of our banner stands so if your banner needs changing over time, we can supply brand new prints so you won't have to buy a completely new stand.

We also have a banner stand design service available, our in-house design team are on hand should you need help in creating a professional design that is print ready.

Do Banner Stands take long to assemble?

Many people can be put off from buying banner stands as they think they take too much time to set up and pack away - This simply isn’t the case! Roller Banner Stands can be erected in a number of seconds by using a telescopic pole that rolls up and simply slots into the base. This also makes it easy to collapse them at the end of the day, and the banner graphic will simply roll into place at the metallic base for easy storage.

Fabric Banner Stands can take a little bit longer than roller banners to assemble, but the frame and bars of the various models is easy to slot together (normally with a numbering system) and the graphic stretches like a sock over the framework.

What material is used to print the graphic on?

The materials used to print graphics onto the banner stands here at Creative Solutions is incredibly varied to suit all budgets, settings and uses. We offer a standard PVC, PVC-free, Mesh, Water-resistant, Recyclable, see-through backlit banner material, fabric polyester and rigid board banners. Each will be displayed as a selectable option on the product. You can also contact us to ask for a specific material if it is not listed.

We offer quality-assured and tested print materials so you can be confident your print will be high-quality and printed with care and excellence. We aim to offer a material range to suit all budgets, banner stand sizes and environment settings.

What is the difference between a entry level, budget, and premium banner stand?

Our budget-friendly and economy banner stands are not to be confused with cheap and nasty, flimsy stands. We select banner stands based on their quality of materials and additional features that may make it a more 'premium' option. Our budget banners still use the high-quality graphic print materials our premium models do, but the hardware has been stripped back to the bare essential features to avoid faff, meaning we can sell them to you at very affordable prices.

Our Premium Range Banners normally come with extra USP's be it stabilising feet, extra clips, lighting, a heavier aluminium frame or be joinable to create a graphic wall.
