Pull-up banners, also known as roll-up banners or pop-up banners, are commonly used for advertising and information display at events, conferences, and within retail environments. The dimensions of pull-up banners can vary depending on the specific needs and the space available for display. However, there are some standard sizes that are commonly used. These include:

  • Standard Size: The most typical size for pull-up banners is 85cm (width) x 200cm (height) or approximately 33.5 inches (width) x 78.7 inches (height).
  • Wide Banners: For a larger display area, wide banners may be used, which can measure up to 120cm (width) x 200cm (height) or approximately 47.2 inches (width) x 78.7 inches (height).
  • Desktop Size: Smaller versions designed for table or desktop use typically measure around 30cm (width) x 40cm (height) or approximately 11.8 inches (width) x 15.7 inches (height).

Custom sizes are also possible if you need a pull-up banner that does not fit these standard dimensions. It’s important to consider the space where the banner will be displayed and what it will be used for when deciding on the size. Additionally, ensure that the design and text are clearly visible from a distance relevant to where your audience will be.

Designing a roller banner involves considering both its visual impact and the information it conveys. Here are some key points to consider for creating an effective roller banner:

1. Purpose and Audience

  • Identify the Purpose: Is the banner for a trade show, conference, retail promotion, or another event? The purpose influences the design and content.
  • Understand Your Audience: Design with the audience in mind. What appeals to them? What information do they need?

2. Content

  • Headline: Should be eye-catching and convey the main message at a glance. Keep it short and impactful.
  • Details: Include essential information such as features, benefits, pricing, or event details. Keep it concise.
  • Call to Action (CTA): Tell the audience what to do next—visit a website, call a phone number, visit a booth, etc.

3. Design Elements

  • Logo and Branding: Place your logo at the top. The banner should reflect your brand’s colours and style.
  • Images: Use high-quality, relevant images. Make sure they are large enough to be seen from a distance.
  • Colours: Use colours that stand out but also align with your brand. Contrast can help make the text readable.
  • Fonts: Use large, legible fonts. Make sure the main message is readable from a distance.

4. Layout

  • Top: Logo and main message. This is what people see first.
  • Middle: Supporting information or images. Details that explain the main message more fully.
  • Bottom: CTA and contact information. Place details here that people can come closer to read.

5. Technical Specifications

  • Size: Standard roller banners are usually around 80×200 cm, but check with your printer for specific sizes.
  • Resolution: Ensure all graphics are high resolution, typically 300 dpi, for printing.
  • File Format: Typically, printers require PDF, AI, or EPS formats. Check with your printer.

6. Practical Tips

  • Proofread: Double-check all text for errors.
  • Mockup: Before finalising, visualise the banner in its intended environment.
  • Professional Help: Consider hiring a designer if you’re unsure about doing it yourself.

Pull Up Banner FAQs

How pull up banners work?

Pull-up banners, also known as roll-up banners or retractable banners, are popular display tools for advertising, presentations, and exhibitions. They work through a simple yet effective mechanism that allows for easy setup and take-down. Here’s a breakdown of how pull-up banners work:

Components

  • Base: The base houses the rolled-up banner and the retractable mechanism. It’s typically made of aluminum or another lightweight, durable material to ensure stability and ease of transport.
  • Banner: The banner itself is usually made of a durable material like vinyl, fabric, or PVC to withstand wear and tear. It features the printed graphics or information.
  • Support Pole: This pole extends from the base and is what the banner attaches to when unrolled. The pole might be telescopic, allowing for height adjustments, or a simple, fixed-length rod.
  • Retractable Mechanism: Within the base, there’s a spring-loaded mechanism that controls the roll-up function of the banner. This mechanism allows the banner to be pulled out for display and retracted back into the base for storage.

How It Works

  1. Setup:
    • The base is placed on the ground where the banner will be displayed.
    • The support pole is assembled (if it’s telescopic, it’s extended to the desired height) and then inserted into a slot or hole in the base.
    • The top of the banner is pulled upwards from the base by hand.
    • Once fully extended, the top of the banner is hooked onto the top of the support pole.
  2. Display:
    • The banner stands upright, held in tension between the base and the top of the support pole.
    • The spring-loaded mechanism in the base locks, keeping the banner securely open.
  3. Take-down:
    • The banner is unhooked from the top of the support pole.
    • The retractable mechanism is engaged, usually by a slight push downwards on the banner, allowing the spring to slowly retract the banner back into the base.
    • The support pole is collapsed and stored alongside the base.

Advantages

  • Portability: Lightweight and comes with a carrying case, making it easy to transport.
  • Ease of Use: Simple to set up and take down without needing tools or extensive effort.
  • Versatility: Can be used in a variety of settings, from trade shows to presentations and promotional events.
  • Visibility: Offers high visibility for branding and messages in a compact, space-efficient design.

Pull-up banners are favoured for their convenience and effectiveness in displaying information prominently and attractively in a variety of settings.

Can pull up banners be recycled?

Pull-up banners, often used for advertising or informational displays at events, are made from various materials, including metal (for the stand) and plastic or vinyl (for the banner itself). The recyclability of these components depends on the materials used and the facilities available in your area. Here’s a general breakdown:

Pull-up banners, often used for advertising or informational displays at events, are made from various materials, including metal (for the stand) and plastic or vinyl (for the banner itself). The recyclability of these components depends on the materials used and the facilities available in your area. Here’s a general breakdown:

  • Metal Stand: The metal parts of a pull-up banner stand are typically made from aluminum or steel, both of which are widely recycled. These can usually be taken to a metal recycling facility or sometimes included in curb-side recycling programs, depending on local policies.
  • Banner Material: The banner itself can be more challenging to recycle. Banners made from vinyl (PVC) are often not accepted in standard recycling programs due to the difficulty in processing PVC. Some specialised recycling programs exist that handle PVC, but they are less common. Banners made from other plastics, such as polyethylene (PE) or polypropylene (PP), might be more easily recycled, depending on local facilities.
  • Print and Inks: The type of ink used for printing on the banner can also affect recyclability. Some inks may contain heavy metals or other substances that make recycling more difficult. However, there are eco-friendly inks and printing methods that are designed to be more compatible with recycling processes.

For recycling pull-up banners, it’s best to:

  1. Check with local recycling programs: Contact your local waste management or recycling center to see if they accept the materials your banner is made of. They can provide specific guidance based on local facilities and policies.
  2. Look for specialised recycling options: Some companies specialise in recycling materials like vinyl banners and may offer mail-in programs.
  3. Consider repurposing: If recycling isn’t an option, you might find creative ways to repurpose the banner material, such as using it for protective covers, bags, or other crafts.

Ultimately, the most environmentally friendly option is to design banners with future use in mind, opting for materials that are easily recyclable or banners that can be reused for multiple events.

What exactly is a Pull Up Banner?

It is a self-standing, portable display stand with a printed graphic panel that retracts on a roller into a spring-loaded base. When ready to use, the printed panel is simply pulled out of its base and hooked onto a supporting pole which slots into the same stand. After use, they can be rolled back into their bases for protection during storage and transportation. Pull Up Banners are quick to construct, easy to transport, light weight and an extremely effective advertising tool.

See our Roller Banner FAQ for more details

Are pull up banners known by any other name?

Yes. You may have heard of roller banners, pop-up banners, roll up banners or retractable banners. Basically, they are all the same product; a self-standing display that houses an extendable graphic panel in its own roller mechanism.
