What are standees?
A standee is a large, self-standing advertising display used to promote movies, products, events, and retail promotions. They are made using custom-cut, polystyrene graphics and mounted on an aluminum frame. The most popular type of standee is the life-size, cut-out celebrity or other famous public figure.
If you are looking for a unique way to bring a promotion to life, custom standees are the only way to go! Adding a standee to your event or booth adds an unexpected element of fun and is more engaging than a banner or rigid sign! They attract attention because they are interactive! People love taking and sharing pictures of themselves standing next to their favorite celebrity crush or with their arm around The President of The United States. Standees are great for parties, graduations, holiday celebrations, retail signage, store grand openings, environmental and dimensional graphics, and more…
Consider pairing one with a custom step-and-repeat banner to create the ultimate selfie station!

Why Choose a Custom Standee?
They Stand Out
Standee displays, by definition, stand out from the competition. Customers are bored with traditional signage and banners and often walk past as if they aren’t even there. Standee displays just work because cut-out marketing stands out, they are more visible and grab your attention. When placed in key spots in a store or display location customers have to look twice to be sure what they are seeing, and that second look is the key to engagement. Whenever you want to promote a service offer, product or special event and bring greater awareness to your brand, standee displays are the perfect way to capture the marketplace’s attention.
They are Memorable
Standee displays work because they create memories. Highly creative standee cutouts offer a fabulous experience to your clients and customers which helps generate vivid tactile memories. Your run of the mill signage or banner may as well be invisible for how often they just disappear into the background. Stand out from the crowd with a standee cutout graphic and be assured that viewers will think of your brand the next time they are looking for what you have to sell.
Cutout standee displays are lower cost but higher impact than traditional easel displays. To put it another way, easel displays only offer the same impact as traditional signage but at a greater cost. Standee cutouts offer high impact advertising without the additional cost of an easel. When looking to draw attention to a service, product, or event, come to us for a cutout standee display and you will save over a traditional poster board and easel set-up.
Standees Amplify Creativity
Cutouts offer the opportunity for creativity to flow freely. Standees can literally be shaped into anything, a person, a place, or thing! A mascot character or even an imaginative eye-catching graphic design, with standees you create a greater impact with your creativity delivering your message. Bring 2-dimensional advertisements into the 3-dimensional space with standees. Use diorama cut out scenes to create a compelling 3D effect, stretch your horizons and think out of the box.
Standees represent a flexible form of signage
Generally, standees range from six inches tall to over 10-feet. The larger the standee, the more intricate the construction. While standees are designed primarily for indoor use with the proper materials, they can be used outside effectively. Elaborate displays can be fitted with lights and electronics, but for a normal standee it is best to position it in a well lit area. Standees placed near doorways or outside are best secured with a weighted base or with their back against a supporting column or wall to avoid being tipped over in a sudden gust of wind.
Standee displays create a viable energy and enthusiasm that traditional marketing often sadly lacks. With the sheer glut of advertising signs and general noise in the market today, a custom standee can help you stand out (pun intended…) from the competition and attract more business than before.
It is always a good time to increase brand awareness around your community and make sure potential customers are aware of the products and services you offer. Deciding to invest in a custom standee is a great, affordable way to up your marketing game so you can stand out from the competition and get more sales.
