Budget 48 Roll Up Banner Stand
The Budget Roll Up is our least expensive retractable banner stand model. We introduced it for customers who needed a low cost model for large promotions, or for those on a tight budget who weren't as concerned about long term durability as much as the initial cost. Unlike other cheap banner stands on the market, the Budget Roll Up is sturdy enough to survive shipping, stands up correctly without leaning, and has a more finished look thanks to the concealed pole connection to the top rail instead of an unsightly metal hook that is visible above the banner.
Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, this style of display features a spring loaded roller that holds the banner under tension, and rolls it safely into the base for storage between uses. The Budget Roll Up shares it's form factor with many different banner stands on the market that all look similar, but there is a big difference in how they are made. Most of the stands of this style are made of very lightweight aluminum, which is easily damaged and has poor structural integrity, which is why they lean or fall over. The Budget Roll Up is made of heavier aluminum, so it has the strength to stand up straight under tension and to survive the typical handling during shipping without arriving broken. In the larger sizes, we've made them heavier still to survive the extra stress they can be subjected to during transit, so the Budget Roll Up 48 and 60 are fairly heavy duty stands. Available in 4 different widths, the Budget Roll Up is an excellent value and comes complete with a lightweight padded carry bag with adjustable shoulder strap. The carry bag for the 48 and 60 models feature a top loading design for easier packing and unpacking of the stand.
The Budget Roll Up has a standard plastic leader that attaches to the bottom of the banner with adhesive, and a snap style top rail that clamps on to the banner for a secure connection.
One of the advantages of a compact style retractable banner stand is that they take up less room when packed and tend to weigh less as well. This makes them less expensive to ship, especially when shipping multiple stands. However, they do take more floor space because of the swing out feet that are needed for stability, and lighter weight stands aren't as stable if used in high traffic areas.
The Budget Roll Up 48 displays a banner with a visible size of 47.25" x 79".
Looking for a higher-end model?
An upgrade for this model, keeping in the same compact form factor, would be the Metro models. The Metro comes in a range of sizes like the Budget Roll Up, and is available in both silver and black finishes and also has a lifetime warranty.
Looking for a less expensive model?
We don't offer anything less expensive, and in our experience, anything that is less expensive isn't likely to work correctly, at least not for very long.
Most customers purchase the Budget Roll Up for short term display or local events where it doesn't need to be shipped, but if you intend to ship the stand frequently or check it as luggage on airlines, a hard shipping case is a good idea and will help keep the stand in good working order. Because of it's length, any case that will hold this stand is going to be large enough to hold more than one. The Smartpak IQ 12x62 case will hold up to 3 of the Budget Roll Up 48 stands in their individual bags, with some room left for other smaller items.
Since this stand has two support poles, we recommend that two lights be used so that the banner will be evenly illuminated. The Silver Light and Silver Light LED spotlights are designed to fit in the socket at the top of the support poles on this stand, so they are the recommended models.
