Roller Banner Buyers Guide

Roller Banners UK

Spoilt for choice? Perhaps but we’re here to help!

We understand how confusing it can all be. They look great and obviously get the job done, but where do you start? It can look like a minefield of roller banners out there. So many to choose from. Some are as big as a house. Others look like desk ornaments. There are expensive all singing, all dancing ones, that connect to make a wall! It’s a big ask and a big deal. We get it! So that’s why we’re here to walk you through every stage of the buying a roller banner process from start to finish.

* Tell me exactly what a roller banner is

A Roller Banner is a self-standing, retractable banner stand, with a printed graphic panel. This panel is inserted into an aluminium spring-loaded base. Roller banners can be rolled away into their own bases to protect the printed panel and makes transportation easy. When ready to use the printed panel is simply pulled up out of its base and hooked onto a pole. To pack away, the panel rolls back into its own base. These stands are easy to transport, quick to construct, light weight and big enough to attract attention.

What other names are used for roller banner stands?

There are many different names used for these types of stands. Roller banners are also known as, roll up banners, pull up banners, pop up banner stands or retractable banner stands. All these names refer to the same product. An exception is pop up banners. Although some people use this term for roller banners, a pop up banner is usually a much larger exhibition stand that as a separate pop up frame.

* When should I use a roller banner?

Roller banners have a multitude of uses and can be found at exhibitions, trade shows, shopping centres, reception areas, product launches, presentations, media events, museums and charity events - to name just a few. Roll up banners are most effective when being used to attract attention, create awareness, advertise special offers to passing customers or as backdrops to exhibition stands or media events. A well-designed roller banner delivers a strong visual message that can be easily seen from a distance.
