How We Make Your Retractable Banners

Customers are usually pretty surprised to find out that the graphics in their retractable – or pull up – banner stand are interchangeable. To demonstrate the wizardry behind the banners, we thought it would be interesting to show you how to assemble retractable banner stands with new graphics:

How are retractable banner stands made?

-First, we print the graphics on special anti-curl pop-up banner stock and trim it to size. This is a smooth vinyl with a matte finish. It rolls back into the stand nicely when you’re done. And, since there isn’t a high-gloss finish, the lights don’t glare off the beautiful artwork.

-Next, we unlock the tension mechanism in the base of the banner stand and clamp the stand to our production table.

-We then position the graphics and attach the bottom of the print to the tension mechanism in the base.

-The top rail of the stand is attached to the top of the graphics.

-Next, we lock the tension mechanism back into place so the graphics will roll smoothly back into the banner stand.

-Finally, we set up your banners so they look great and help your organization get noticed!

When your old graphics are no longer relevant or you just want to update your message, we just remove the old graphics from the tension mechanism and the top rail then put the bright, shiny (non-glare) new graphics into place.
