Whether you’re attending a trade show, recruiting at a job fair, or want to give visitors to your office a clearer idea of your products or services, retractable banners are a great choice. Here are some reasons why:
- Portability and Ease of Use: Retractable pop-up banners are neatly packaged in carrying cases with straps that make them easy to transport. They fit under your seat or in the overhead compartment of an airplane and are readily transported by an automobile or even a pedestrian. Pop-Up Banners are also intuitively easy to assemble. Within two minutes of your arrival you can have a colorful banner on display. The sizes range from 8.5” x 11” (pop-ups that stand on a table) to 90” tall (floor displays) and you can get a variety of shapes. Storage is effortless because the banner stores in the provided case until needed. All banners are show-certified fire retardant and are an eco-friendly product choice. They are easy to use, easy to move and easy to customize to your specific needs.
- High Impact: A tall pop-up banner, no matter where it’s placed, commands attention. Ideally the message should be short and succinct and the image should be colorful and attention-grabbing. These banners are irrestibily eye-catching; almost every person looks at them in passing because they have a very quick “read time”. It’s your chance to attract a prospect or customer to your booth or to display an important message about your firm.
- Cost-Effective: One of the great things about retractable banners is that you can replace the banner itself when you need a new message or image. When you order a banner, you also receive a banner stand, the few pieces of easy to assemble hardware as well as a carrying case. When you want to change the banner, provide a new file and the printer can print a replacement for considerably less than you were originally charged for the initial banner + hardware + case. Depending upon the banner style, you can change the banner yourself or ask the printer to do it for you. Banners themselves are printed on block-out material so that they won’t bend or bow at the edges so even if you don’t change your banner for years, it will still retain its shape. Banners are available for outdoor or indoor use. You can even get a two-sided banner and change only one side if the need ever arises.
When designing a banner, it’s important that you keep it as colorful and simple as possible. People expect these types of banners to give them a short, concise message so it’s best to be as precise as possible when using images and text. Also, be sure to design these oversize pieces to the actual, final size of the banner at a minimum of 200 – 300 dpi. If you don’t, your images and text will look grainy and will defeat the whole purpose of why you bought a banner in the first place!
