By far and away the most versatile display is the retractable banner stand. The retractable banner is very light weight and as you can see from the graphic above it is a snap to assemble.
You can save money by giving your banner a smart design that can be used for a variety of trade shows. Retractable displays double as tabletop displays. Just design your graphic to be viewed both fully extended or as a table top display.
The primary differences between the retractable displays are:
- height and widths
- double vs. single sided viewing
- indoor vs. outdoor
- easy to replace graphic panels
- base design
Another money saving tip is to get a display that has a graphic panel that is easy to replace. If you have a variety of shows that promote different products then get just one display and have multiple graphics printed. You can then easily swap out the graphic panel when needed.
Generally these types of displays can be printed is less than two weeks but it is always a good idea to start early so you have time to view your on line proof and make any changes you need.
