Testimonials

I wanted to drop you a note to thank you and the team at Power Graphics for the great work you did for us. Both our ShowMax tabletop and our Expo banner display were instrumental in our fantastic presence at our inaugural trade show. The quality of the graphic work was nothing less than stellar. Your quick work and great pricing was much appreciated.

I have to assume that the great look of our booth (along with our bright shiny personalities HAHAHA) was key to the great results from the trade show. Our investment will be repaid many, many times over. Please share our gratitude with the rest of your team. And do not hesitate to use me as a reference if any potential customers would like an opinion by a current customer. There is no doubt we wilkl be doing business with you in the future.

Retractable Banner Stands


Retractable banner stands are generally considered the easiest and most convenient trade show banner display to use, which is why they have become the most popular style of banner stand, both for trade show and retail banner displays. Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, they get their name because they have a mechanism that retracts the banner into the base when it's not in use. Generally it's a spring loaded mechanism but some of our high-end retractable banner stands use a different system that has no springs at all. In every case, you simply pull up the retractable banner like you would pull down a window shade, and attach the head rail to the top of a support pole. Except for extremely wide models that require two support poles, a single person can easily set up a retractable banner stand in under 1 minute. Taking down retractable banner stands is just as simple. You lift the head rail off the support pole, carefully lower the banner back into the base, and put the pole and base into the travel bag. They are also very popular for promotional displays in stores, shopping malls, theaters, airports, and conventions.

Below are brief descriptions of each retractable banner stand model, or family of stands, that we offer. Since we carry such a large selection, it can be difficult to choose a model, so be sure to read the Our Recommendations tab for suggestions and the Model Comparison Chart also provides useful information to help you make a choice. As always, feel free to contact us for help and advice.

Made from light weight aluminum and plastic, Budget Roll Up stands are designed for those who want a cheap banner stand and are less concerned with long term durability. We only offer our smooth blockout vinyl banner with these stands, since it's our least expensive banner option, and only sell them with the printed banners, unlike our other models. That way we can control the quality and keep the cost low on this product.

The Econo Stand is our least expensive roll up banner stand, but is the highest quality stand on the market at this price. Compared to similar stands, it features a quality roller mechanism from Space, the same company that makes some of the highest quality stands in the industry. It also has a pole and top rail that are similar to high end stands, rather than the unsightly metal hook that remains visible above the banner on other similar models. It also has a higher quality carry bag making it an exceptional value for the money.

The Express collection of retractable banner stands feature a popular compact shape with a single swing out foot, fixed height pole, and unbreakable rubberized end caps. This is a well made stand that comes in a range of sizes at a great price.

Expo Pro telescopic retractable banner stands are the next generation of one of our most banner stands. We added new features, like adjustable tension, pole storage inside the front cover of the base, and a more heavy duty base construction. But, we kept the most popular features, such as the snap rails on both the headrail and roller mechanism to attach the banner, and telescopic height pole.

The Metro collection of roll up banner stands feature a popular compact shape with two swing out feet for stability, except for the 22" wide model that has a single foot. This stand has the same basic look as many of the cheap, flimsy imports on the market, but the Metro features heavy gauge aluminum construction and is backed with a lifetime warranty, making it an excellent value for who need a well made, compact stand that comes in a variety of sizes.

The QuickSilver family of retractable banner stands offer excellent value and easy banner changes thanks to the use of velcro attachment to the roller mechanism and a snap style top rail. There are 5 sizes available and the 24" wide model is one of the few full height banner displays we offer in a narrow width. This is our most popular banner stand.

The Pacific family of retractable banner stands come in three sizes and are good quality, compact style banner displays with a fixed height and silver finish.

These retractable banner stands come in three sizes and are some of our most popular banner displays. The stylish base comes in anodized aluminum or black finish, and the head rail has been redesigned for greater security, making this an excellent mid-range option.

The Sterling represents the latest in retractable banner stand technology. We had this stand made exclusively for us with all our favorite features. It offers a completely adhesive-free, tool-free banner mounting system that includes a snap rail on the removable roller mechanism and thumb screws that tighten by hand on the clamping head rail. Because the roller is removable, you can easily take it out to change the graphic by attaching it directly to the roller with the convenient snap lock rail. This means there is no adhesive, velcro, special parts or treatments needed to mount or change the banner so Sterling retractable banner stands are compatible with a wider variety of banner materials.

The Blade LX retractable banner stand has a stylish gun metal finish, and a modern design where the lid of the base opens up to allow the roller mechanism to be removed for easy graphics changes.

At a towering 97" high, over 8' tall, this retractable banner stand makes a maximum impact with the ease and convenience of a retracting banner. The Elevate features a 4 piece telescopic pole so it can be used a variety of heights, easy roller access via a flip-top lid, and a removable self-locking roller mechanism.

The Contender family of compact retractable banner stands are available in either a silver or black finish. They are among the tallest rollup banner stands we offer at over 103" tall. Their high quality and range of sizes makes them a good choice.

The Mercury is the only retractable banner stand that's made in America. It comes in 4 widths from 24" to 60" and has a lifetime warranty.

These are top quality retractable banner stands that are one of the best values we offer. These stands are comparable in features and quality to stands costing twice as much, so be sure to take a look at these models if you are shopping for anything other than a budget model. They come in widths from 33.4" to 59" and have an optional telescopic pole for those who need a variable height.

This bamboo retractable banner stand is an eco-friendly display option. It has a swing out foot and holds a banner with a visible size of 33.5" x 76.75" and comes with a five year warranty.

This compact version of the Roll Up has a swing out foot and telecopic pole for use from 63-87" tall. It comes in both a 33.4" and 39.375" width, and features the Expolinc lifetime warranty.

This pull up banner stand has many advanced features and is one of our favorites. It features easy graphic changes, adjustable tension, telescopic height, and one of the nicer carry bags. A high end retractable banner stand at a mid level price.

Like the Supreme, the Infinity is comparable to stands costing twice as much. It is one of the most advanced retractable banner stands on the market with features such as an adjustable tension knob and removable roller. They come in widths from 23.6" to 59".

The Imagine is a removable cassette retractable banner stand. This type of roll up banner stand has the graphic stored on a cassette that can easily be exchanged in a matter of seconds. Otherwise, the stand is almost the same as the popular Barracuda, but with the removable cassette feature.

These top quality stands come in 5 widths from 27.5" to 57.1", and 4 different widths from 57" to 96.5", making them one of the most versatile collection of retractable banner stands. All Expolinc displays come with a lifetime warranty and are built to last.

The Link by Space Services is an innovative premium grade banner stand that was designed specifically to be used as single, stand alone banner stands, or joined together to form a nearly seamless curved banner wall. The Link retractable banner stands feature an innovative design that allows the graphic to almost completely hide the stand itself due to the style of the base and the roll back top snap rail. Available in 33.4" and 39.375" wide models.

The Banner Bug family of roll up banner stands are high quality displays that come with a lifetime warranty. The 7 different sizes of roll up banner stands in this family range from 23" to an incredible 72" wide, and all have easy graphics changes thanks to super thin velcro attachments.

This top of the line roll up banner stand from Expolinc is premium version of the Expolinc Roll Up Classic. It has a push button release for the top of the base, polished end caps with recessed screw heads and is the highest end stand Expolinc offers.

The Expand MediaScreen 1 family are compact premium retractable banner stands that are slim and user-friendly with an attractive design. Like all Expand displays, the MediaScreen 1 is manufactured from the highest quality materials and features Swedish quality and design and includes a lifetime warranty making them an excellent choice for heavy duty use.

This is one of our favorite retractable banner stands, and one of the most advanced designs on the market. It has the Expand quality construction and lifetime warranty in a very attractive display that features a unique retractor mechanism that uses no springs. It's one of the easiest stands for graphic changes as well.

This display has almost identical features as the Expand M2, but with a differently styled base, and it comes in both 33.4" and 39.4" wide models.

Like all Expand displays, the QuickScreen 3 family of premium retractable banner stands feature Swedish quality and a lifetime warranty. They ffer exchangeable graphic cassettes and come in 3 different widths with optional changeable colored end caps.

This latest model from Expand builds on the popular QuickScreen 3 to provide many new features in a slim, aerodynamic shape. It features easily changeable cassettes, a patented adjustment knob to change the angle of the banner, and it comes complete with a hard shipping case.

As the name suggests, these retractable banner stands are oversized. They can be configured for use up to nearly 10' tall and were built to be used side-by-side to form even larger displays. The headrails have magnetic connectors to join them with adjacent displays to make setup quick and easy.

The BannerUp Plus family features 48" and 60" wide models that are available in heights up to nearly 10' tall. They come with a 10 year warranty, solid construction and a deluxe travel bag.

This unique display is a set of retractable banner stands in reverse. It consists of three retractable banner sections that are supported by adjustable height posts to make a three section backwall display where each section can be various heights and at varying angles, and the banners retract up instead of down.

 

Below are brief descriptions of each double sided retractable banner stand model, or family of stands, that we offer. Since we carry such a large selection, it can be difficult to choose a model, so be sure to read the Our Recommendations tab for suggestions and the Model Comparison Chart also provides useful information to help you make a choice. As always, feel free to contact us for help and advice.

The Executive Double is a quality two sided retractable banner stand featuring solid construction and a clean look with a footless base. The Executive Double is made with heavy gauge aluminum construction and is backed with a lifetime warranty, making it an excellent value in a double sided retractable banner stand.

The Metro 2 double sided roll up banner stands feature a popular compact shape with a swing out foot for stability. The Metro 2 is made with heavy gauge aluminum construction and is backed with a lifetime warranty, making it an excellent value for those who need a well made, compact double sided retractable banner stand.

The Sterling 2 is a quality double sided retractable banner stand with a high end look and features to match such as push button lid release and removable rollers with snap style graphic mounting. The Sterling 2 can also be used a table top model by removing the bottom section of the adjustable telescopic pole. It is quick and simple to use and the 24" model holds 2 23.6” x 53-86” banners, the 33" model holds 2 33.4" x 35-86" banner (plus a 6” bottom bleed).

These double sided retractable banner stands come in three sizes and are some of our most popular banner displays. The stylish base comes in anodized aluminum or black finish, and the head rail has been redesigned for greater security, making this an excellent mid-range option.

The Mercury is the only retractable banner stand that's made in America. It comes in 4 widths from 24" to 60" and has a lifetime warranty.

This double sided retractable banner stand is one of the nicest we offer, yet is still reasonably priced. Comparable to stands costing far more, it is a professional grade stand with high end features such a deluxe carry case, removable rollers with snap rails and panel strip graphic attachments, push button lid release and much more. It comes in both 33.4" and 39.4" wide models.

This double sided pull up banner stand has many advanced features. It offers easy graphic changes, adjustable tension, telescopic height, and one of the nicer carry bags. A high end retractable banner stand at a mid level price.

This is a double sided retractable banner stand with removable cassettes. It's basically the same as the Excalibur, but with the graphics on changeable cassettes.

This double sided version of the top of the line roll up banner stand from Expolinc is premium version of the Expolinc Roll Up Classic. It has a push button release for the top of the base, polished end caps with recessed screw heads and is the highest end stand Expolinc offers.

The Expand MediaScreen 2 family are compact premium double sided retractable banner stands that are slim and user-friendly with an attractive design. Like all Expand displays, the MediaScreen 2 is manufactured from the highest quality materials and features Swedish quality and design and includes a lifetime warranty making it an excellent choice for heavy duty use.

 

For those who want cheap banner stands, the Budget Roll Up family are our least expensive retractable banner stands. They are made of light weight aluminum and plastic, so they are not as durable as our other models, but they are very inexpensive and come with our smooth blockout vinyl banner which offers a vibrant, high resolution image in a durable tear-proof, waterproof, and scratch resistant banner.

A large step up in quality from the Budget Roll Up family, even though they are a relatively small step up in price, are the Econo Stand, Express and Expo Pro models. The Econo Stand is a low cost stand that is an excellent quality product for the money. It is a basic model without any special features, but it's the best made stand you will find at this price point. The Express is based on the popular Expo model, but without the snap rail attachment on the roller and the adjustable pole. It comes in 22", 33.4" and 47.25" widths and is available in both silver and black finishes. The Expo Pro is one of our exclusive models, and doesn't require any adhesive or special treatments to attach the graphic to the banner stand. The head rail has a snap lock feature, as does the roller mechanism, so frequent graphic changes are no problem for this stand. These stands come in a 33.4" width, which is a very nice size that gives you enough width to make an impact yet is still narrow enough to be easy to transport.

The Metro is a compact option with a lifetime warranty at a low price. This collection of stands have the same look as many cheap banner stands on the market, but these are heavy duty stands that come in a range of sizes from 22" to 60" wide, and they also come in both silver and black finishes.

The QuickSilver Pro stands are great for a variety of reasons. They are inexpensive, but well made to hold up well over time, and graphic changes are very easy. They are significantly cheaper than any other option we offer in the large sizes, and the travel case is one of the nicest at any price. They also include a tension adjustment feature, which makes it easy for anyone to add tension to the banner if needed. This is a great feature that can save significant time and money if the stand looses tension during shipping or when changing a banner. While we don't charge for retensioning a stand that isn't retracting fully, the shipping costs back and forth can add up so this is nice feature to have.

A nice mid range stand at a great price, the Sterling is an excellent choice. It features a removable roller with both a panel strip and snap lock banner attachment, similar to the Space Supreme, so banners can be attached in multiple ways. It has a telescopic pole so it can be used for a variety of different applications. The Space Supreme falls in this category as well. While it's a premium quality stand with many advanced features, we are able to sell it in the mid range price category, making it one of the best values we offer. It also has snap rail attachments on the roller and headrail, and removable rollers, and the roller can also accommodate panel strip mounting. It's also available in multiple sizes from 33.4" up to 59" wide, and comes in a deluxe carry case. A fixed height 84.7" pole is standard, but a telescopic pole is optional if you need to vary the graphic height.

For a retractable banner stand with advanced features, the Space Infinity is an excellent choice. It comes with a fixed height pole that displays an 84.7" tall graphic, but there is a telescopic pole option so it can be used at different heights from 39" to 84.7", and a taller fixed pole that displays a 94.5" tall graphic. It has a snap rail attachment to the roller mechanism, which makes for very easy graphic changes and good reliability. It also has adjustable tension on the roller mechanism so it can be adjusted if it looses tension over time or if more tension is needed to roll up a stiff graphics. It also has an excellent suitcase style padded carry case.

For those looking to purchase products made in the USA, the Mercury is the only option available. While many of our banner stands are from US and European companies, virtually all of them are manufactured in Asia. The Mercury comes in 4 widths in both single and double sided versions, and it's telescopic so the height can be adjusted to wide range of sizes. These don't have the same polished finish as many of the other stands in this price range, and they take an extra minute or two to setup, but they come with a lifetime warranty and are popular for those looking to buy American.

At the high end, the Space Supreme and Infinity are the least expensive with lifetime warranties, and they are described above. The Expolinc Roll Up banner stands are similar, with the Classic collection being available in 5 widths from 27.5" to 57.1" and 4 heights from 57" to 96.5". This makes for an extremely versatile collection of roll up banner stands that are well made with lifetime warranties.

For the top-of-the line retractable banner stands, the Expand M2 and Expand Media Screen 4 are our favorites. These retractable stands are not inexpensive, but for trade show pros or heavy duty users, these banner stands are well worth the cost due to their superior construction and lifetime warranties. These retractable banner stands are basically the same with a different exterior appearance, and the Swedish design is apparent in every aspect of these stands. They use a different technology for retracting the banner that eliminates the spring mechanism that's found in every other retractable stand. The Modular Tension System found in these banner stands cannot unwind causing the stand to be useless, because when the banner is retracted into the base, there is no longer tension in the roller. This is a difficult concept to grasp if you've used other retractable banner stands, but once you've tried this stand, using another retractable banner stand is like sitting in coach once you've flown in first class. The graphics are installed on super-light media rolls, and mounting the graphic is simple and requires no tools so it can be performed anywhere. Also, since the media rolls don't contain a spring mechanism like other cassette retractable displays, they are lighter and less expensive making it more cost effective to have multiple graphics available for your display.

If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative to a full popup booth that still looks professional for a back wall setup or for larger trade show banner displays, we have several options. The Aero Multi-Option Backwall consists of three separate retractable stands that roll from the top down, all connected by supports that allow the individual panels to be used at various angles and different heights. The effect is like putting multiple retractable banner stands together, but in a very professional way. The only down side to this stand is that it's not as tall as some of the retractable banner stands, and it's not as portable since it packs into three bags with two of them holding the round bases.

We also have the Expand MediaScreen XL, which are retractable banner stands with graphic widths of either 39.375 or 47.25" and a height of up to 118 1/8". These large retractable banner stands have unique magnetic connectors on the ends of the head rails so multiple units can be easily linked together to form a display of 8', 12', 16' or more wide.

Another option for large banner displays are the Banner Bug retractable banner stands. We carry these retractable stands in a variety of sizes, but the largest size is an incredible 114" wide. Obviously at such a large size, they are a more difficult to transport, but if you want to make a really big and seamless impact, these banner stands will allow you to do it.

We offer several options with each stand so you can choose the qualities and price that suit your needs. All our options offer excellent print quality, are waterproof, tear resistant and fade resistant, so any choice you make will be a quality product.

Economy Banner: Smooth blockout banner is a completely opaque vinyl with a low gloss finish and a slight fabric texture. It produces sharp, vivid images and is waterproof, tearproof, fade resistant and very durable. While considered a curl free material, it doesn't hang quite as flat as our more expensive options, but overall it's an excellent option at a great price.

Standard Banner: Curl Free Fire Retardant banner has the beautiful upscale look of fabric, excellent color reproduction, a low glare finish and it is specially engineered to hang flat without curling at the edges, even with heavy ink coverage. It's waterproof, tearproof, fade resistant and of all the banner options available, this one hangs the flattest. As it is fire retardant, with an NFPA 701 rating, it's excellent for display in public buildings such as museums, theaters, and other locations with strict fire codes. This is our most popular material.

Fabric Banner: Blockout Polyester is a heavy 100% polyester fabric that is woven so tightly that it's completely opaque so light from behind can't cast shadows on the graphic. It's waterpoof, tearproof, fade resistant and offers sharp printing with brilliant colors. This material is printed with water-based latex inks for an extremely eco-friendly solution that hangs very flat and looks great.

Premium Banner: Tradeshow Banner is printed on an opaque polyester film and laminated with a polycarbonate laminate for a 10 mil thick finished banner. It is the ultimate in image quality, will hang flat without curling at the edges, is the most scuff and scratch resistant product available, and has a classic low gloss polycarbonate textured finish that is the standard for tradeshow graphics. It's fade resistant, tear resistant, and waterproof. This product is also very environmentally friendly being printed with water based inks and containing no PVC.

 

For banner stands ordered with banners, normal turnaround time is 4-5 days plus shipping time, depending on the model you order. Hardware only orders usually ship within 1-2 days. During the order process you will be asked if you have a specific due date, and if you do, we will adjust your shipping method, if necessary, to get your order to you on time. If you need your order even quicker, we also have a rush service.

We don't keep every size and model in stock because we carry so many different styles. We do carry the most popular options in stock, and the models we don't carry are usually in stock in our manufacturer's warehouses. Even the models we don't stock can ship within 4-5 days for stands with banners, or faster for rush orders. For hardware only orders, we ship from whichever location is closest to you for the fastest and least expensive delivery.

We sell all our banner stands with or without a banner. If you don't already have a banner, we obviously recommend having us print and install the banner for you, since we provide top quality printing and banner materials at very competitive prices, but the choice is yours. There are instructions, specs and templates for each banner stand on each product page to assist you both with designing your banner and installing them for those who want to provide their own banner.

We do offer far more models than any other company that we are aware of, and the reason is that they are all different. In general, many of them seem similar, but each one has unique features so that no two of them are the same. Believe it or not, there are far more models available that we don't offer because where two models are basically the same, we only offer what we consider to be the best of the two. But, that still leaves a huge selection, which can seem a bit overwhelming. That's why we provide suggestions in the Our Recommendations tab to help those who are undecided. But, we frequently get calls from people who are looking for a specific set of features in a banner stand, and often there is only one model that will fit all their requirements, and that's why we have so many models. That way we are more likely to have exactly what you need, rather than making you settle for something that isn't quite what you wanted.

We offer multiple banner options for the same reason we offer so many stands, so that you can get exactly the combination you want. Each banner material we offer is a quality product that is tear proof, water proof, and fade resistant and printed in full color at high resolution. The differences are in their other qualities. Our Economy banner looks great but doesn't hang as flat, so we offer it because it's the least expensive, high quality material for those on a tight budget who don't mind the banner not being perfectly flat. Our Standard Curl Free Fire Retardant banner is a high end material that will hang flat without edge curl, but it's a little more expensive, so while most people choose this option, we didn't want to force a more expensive material on those people who would rather save the money. the Fabric Banner is for those who like the look of fabric, and the Premium banner is for those who want the very best banner stand material available, need the extra durability of a laminated graphic, and don't mind the added expense.

That depends on your priorities. If you want the least expensive banner, the Economy banner is the best choice. It offers great print quality and durability at an economical price. If you want the banner that hangs the flattest, the Standard Curl Free Blockout banner is the best. The Premium Trade Show Banner has the very highest image quality you can get, and will tend to have less color shift in different lighting conditions, so it would be the best choice if color accuracy is the most important consideration. It's also laminated with a textured polycarbonate that diffuses glare, so it's a good option if glare is big concern or if you plan to use the banner in a place where there will be a light source behind the banner. If you want the most durable banner with fine art print quality, then the Premium banner is the best choice. The fabric banner is a good choice for someone who like the look of fabric and wants a PVC-free banner. The premium banner is also PVC-free.

As we've said before, all our banners are quality materials with excellent print quality and durability, so in that regard, you can't make a bad choice. The Standard Curl Free Blockout banner is by far the most popular material we offer. It has excellent color, a high-end fabric-like finish, and hangs the flattest of any material we offer. The Premium banner also hangs flat, but it has a memory and will curl a little each time it's set up until it has time to relax, which usually takes a few hours.

While most of our customers provide us with a file for printing their banners, we can also design your banner stand graphics for you. We've found in most cases, our customers have an idea of what they want, and often already have logos, photos and the wording they want on the banner. In that case, the design or setup of the file takes much less time and is therefore less expensive than a full design where we would come up with the concept, the images, etc. In a case where you have all the elements and just need us to set them up in a professional and attractive manner, the cost usually runs from $50-$75. For situations where we need to do a bit more work and get high resolution images for you, the cost is generally in the $75-$100 range. Full design work from concept to finished product can run from $250-$500 or more.

When you place your order, there will be a place where you can indicate that you need us to do your design. When you choose that option, we will contact you to discuss your needs and give you an estimate before any work begins.

One each product page there is a Specifications tab that contains the specifications, instructions, and graphic templates for that product. The graphic templates are usually provided in both pdf and Illustrator eps formats. If you need information that is not provided, please contact us and we'll be happy to get you the information you need.

Yes, the installation of the banner in the stand is included so your stand is ready to go when you receive it.

Some models of retractable banner stands are telescopic, which means their support pole is not a fixed height but extends and can be set do different heights. If you look at the specifications tab for each model, it will show the range of sizes that you can use a specific telescopic banner stand. You can also look at our Retractable Banner Stand Comparison Chart to quickly see which models are telescopic and their range of sizes.

For retractable banner stands that are not telescopic, most can be used at different sizes by using only one or two sections of the support pole, instead of all three. With some models you may have to cut the elastic cord that holds the sections of pole together, but with others, you can simply let them hang and remain connected. If you need this capability, contact us and we can give you information on the sizes that a particular model can be set to by using different pole sections.

Regardless of what you may hear from our competitors, all banner stand are designed so the banners can be changed, and while it may be more convenient to send a stand back to have us change the banner, it's not required. Some retractable banner stands have methods of attaching the banner that are easier than others, so if you want to change the banner yourself, you may want to look for models that make that easier for you.

The most common attachment of the banner to the retractor mechanism is through the use of a leader material that is attached to the roller on one end. The banner is attached to the other end of the leader since with most designs, you don't have access directly to the roller mechanism. Other styles do give you access to the roller through various methods, so those generally don't have a leader as it's not necessary in those cases.

The most common method for the top rail to attach to the banner is by a clamping action or snap rail. With this style, the head rail opens and snaps closed on the banner to grip it firmly. Other methods include a clamping rail with set screws, velcro attachment, or a specially designed piece that sticks to the banner and fits in a channel in the headrail.

Some cheap banner stands have head rails where the banner simply sticks to an adhesive strip, but we've found that method to be unreliable and it makes changing the banner very difficult, so we don't offer any models that rely solely on double stick tape to support the banner.

The cost for a replacement banner will obviously vary depending on the banner material selected, as well as the particular model of stand the banner is for, since the size varies between models. The easiest way to determine the cost of a replacement banner is to look at the hardware only price for a particular stand, and deduct that from the cost of the stand with the banner of your choice. The difference will be the cost of a replacement banner.

This is up to you and we do provide instructions for changing the banner should you want to do it yourself. Some of our models have extremely easy graphic changes, and others are a little more involved. We are always happy to change the banner for you, but there is the additional cost of shipping the banner stand back and forth, so many people prefer to change the banner themselves to save money. In fact, that's one of the selling points of some of our most expensive models such as the Expand M2. Even though it's one of the more expensive stands, the fact that the graphic change is so simple means it can save you money over time because you won't have to pay to ship your stand back and forth for every graphic change. And, with it's lifetime warranty, it can easily turn out to be less expensive in the long run.

When you click the Place Order button next to any product, our Pricing/Order wizard will appear, and once you enter some details such as quantity and banner option, you can click on the Shipping tab and enter your state and zip code to see the shipping costs for the different shipping services. At that point, you can continue on and add the items to your cart, or leave the wizard and continue shopping.

If you're going to ship your banner stand, you should always pack it in a durable box that's at least as heavy as the one it came in, and remember that you should change the box after it's been shipped a few times to provide adequate protection for the stand in transit. The same is true for checking them as luggage, although in our experience, even the shipping box may not be enough to protect the stand when checking it with an airline. Small stands can usually be brought as carry on items, or we also sell various hard shipping cases that will protect the stand if you check it with an airline or ship it with any common carrier such as UPS or FedEx. If you ship your stand fairly often, a shipping case can pay for itself very quickly compared with frequently replacing shipping boxes.

There are quantity discounts available on both the banners and the stands. The discounts on the banner printing are for multiple copies of the same design, and are available at quantities of 2, 10, 25, 50, etc. Discounts on the hardware vary by model but generally start at quantities of 11. Contact us to get quantity prices for any particular model you are interested in.

Yes, we can provide replacement banners for any stand, whether or not it's one we sell. It may be necessary for you to send us the stand so we can be sure the banner is printed at the correct size and with the correct specifications to work properly, but otherwise, it should not be any problem.

Since we sell such a huge selection of stands, the odds are good that we can provide repair or replacement parts for you. There are some brands that we don't work with and can't get replacement parts for, but if the stand is not under warranty anyway, we may be able to repair it for you, since the design of most stands is the same. Contact us with your specific situation and we'll be happy to help you if we can.
