October 12th Banner stands are one of the single most useful and versatile types of trade show equipment you can invest in.  We always recommend them to our own customers and clients specifically because of this versatility.  They can effectively promote a wide range of messages, and they can also be used in many different circumstances as well – even outside of trade shows.

Even if you’re only an occasional exhibitor, our Best Displays & Graphics team highly recommend having a few banner stands on-hand, so that you can bring them out whenever you need to add a little extra oomph to your outreach.

Here’s a quick rundown of the types of banner stands out there, and some of the ways they can be put to effective use.

Best Displays’ Quick Guide to Banner Stands

  1. Types of banner stands.

Fundamentally, a banner stand is just that:  A standing banner consisting of a frame and a piece of graphics being displayed.  The graphics are usually printed fabric or vinyl, but some variations could also hold more solid graphics such as printed plastic or cardboard.  It just depends on your needs.

  1. Great Uses for Banner Stands

This really is a “the only limit is your imagination” situation.  The basic simplicity of banner stands is what makes them so multipurpose!

3 – Where You Can Use Banner Stands

Thanks to their light weight, fast set up, and ease of storage, banner stands are a true “go anywhere” solution for promotion.  They don’t even necessarily need to be customer-facing!  We’ve seen companies take their disused banners and put them to work as employee motivators when not in active use.

For example, you could:

Just keep in mind that if you want to use them outdoors, you will want to find some sort of solution for anchoring their base.  Otherwise, the banner will tend to get caught in the wind.  However, solutions as simple as sandbags or water-weights are usually sufficient to keep them in one place.
