Spinnaker Portable Billboard
This versatile indoor/outdoor portable billboard can be used for single or double sided presentations. With a maximum graphic area of 8 foot wide x 8 foot high (wind conditions permitting), it's an ideal promotional solution for outdoor events, advertisements, exhibitions and public areas such as airports and shopping centers. Units can be linked together for added impact.
The Spinnaker features hollow feet that can be filled with water or sand for stability, and extra weights can be added for use in stronger winds. The height is telescopic from 45" to 95" so various sizes of banners can be used, and multiple units can be used together for a larger, seamless display.
See the Models & Prices tab below for pricing both with and without banners. The Specifications tab shows details and specs, and the FAQ tab has answers to common questions. The How to Order tab has detailed instructions for completing the Order Form.

Normal production time is 4-5 days if you're ordering a graphic with your display hardware. Hardware only orders usually ship in 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 printing order even quicker, we also have a rush service. If you authorize rush charges, we can get your order shipped in 1-2 days. Rush charges are $75 per order. If we're able to meet your deadline without bumping other jobs, we won't actually charge the rush charge, but you must authorize the rush to guarantee delivery.
We recommend that bitmap images such as digital photos be 150dpi at the actual print size in order to look good from close range. Larger display graphics tend to viewed from further away, so if that's the case, lower resolution files of 72-100 dpi at the actual print size can be used and still look good from 5 feet away. We use special software to enlarge smaller images to their full print size, but the larger the original file, the better the results will be. If you're images are smaller than we recommend, which is common for larger prints, it's important to consider viewing distance as well. A print that shows a lack of resolution due to enlargement up close, might look just fine from arms length. We've printed images at 16 feet wide from 8 megapixel cameras that look very good from five feet away, so where a print will be displayed and how close you expect it to be viewed from are important to consider when deciding how large a print can be made. When in doubt, send us your file and we'll examine it and let you know how large we think it can go and still look good.
At it's full size of about 8' x 8', the Spinnaker has a very large surface area which makes it more susceptible to blowing over in windy conditions. The hollow bases can be filled with water or sand to give it stability, but in stronger winds, follow the instructions to add additional weight for greater stability.
The setup is very easy and takes about 10 minutes, and it can be done by a single person.
