Retractable Stands of the Jumbo Sort

6 foot retracting banner standNow available in 5 foot, 6 foot and 8 foot wide options, premium banner stands are ideal for Trade Shows, Conference and Exhibitions. With their combination of width and portability, these retractable stands can be used as Step and Repeat” photo backdrops, product/service display signage and even to create a temporary corridor or area. SpeedPro of SF Peninsula’s custom printing allows for unique graphics to display your message bigger than ever before! This product includes a carrying case for transport, which makes event signage easy and manageable for any size team — and it doesn’t require expensive and inconvenient off-site storage.  Any closet will do.

Graphics are produced on traditional matte vinyl banner material for long term applications and low glare finish. These are great alternatives to bulky trade show displays and outdated hardware. This product comes with a 1 year manufacturers warranty and should the graphics ever need updating.  SpeedPro can easily print and install new graphics into the existing hardware. If lighting is a consideration, LED Lights are  available for these banner stands to brighten up your display.

Or, maybe a trio of stands

Many of our clients choose to build a flexible and re-configurable set of multiple smaller retractable stands designed to visually work together. These can be designed as a continuous image broken up into two, three or four. Or, they can be designed as a “mix and match” set where certain elements can be exchanged depending on the target audience or event. This makes for a dynamic and easy-to-update option.

When considering options, think of your use case. First, does having the ability to configure the set of stands as either stand-alone or part of a set appeal? Secondly, will your travel or set up limitations make the multi-stand option a winner. And finally, if you design for swap-outs, it can be a budget-friendly option.

The example shown here is clearly integrated as a single image, but SpeedPro has produced trios, pairs and even quads of various sorts.

Consider Stretched fabric frame sets

stretch fabric displaysOne of the most popular options for large banner or backdrops is dye sublimation printed fabric. Why are they popular? Because they’re easy to transport, easy to setup, and lightweight to ship or carry. The two main types are “folding frame” systems (sometimes called spring-up, cantilever, or pop-up). These start with a frame made of thin aluminum tubes that are cleverly fastened together to collapse into a tight bundle, but open up to form a tall, wide and stable frame. Upon that frame is attached the printed graphic, which can extend just to the edges or “return” on the sides to cover the frame depth.

In contrast, “pillow case” stands are assembled from thicker tubes of aluminum and the stretch fabric printed cover is slipped over the frame to create a tight, great looking display.
