Retractable Banners

What are Retractable Banners?

Retractable banners pull out of and retract into an aluminum stand or base for maximum portability. This feature makes these banners the ultimate signage solution for trade shows, events and conferences.

Our retractable banners include the option of printing your graphic and messaging on 13 oz. smooth vinyl or UV fabric. Enhance your presentation with our premium and deluxe options, allowing you to customize the size of your display with the included adjustable pole (standard banners feature a non-adjustable pole). Each banner also comes with a padded carrying case that makes storage and travel a breeze. Optional LED display lights are also available to complete your display.

The durability, portability and ease of use coupled with professional quality printing means your next trade show or event using your retractable banner will be your best yet. Your retractable banner and metal base will last for many events and years to come.

Aluminum Bases

Our standard retractable banners are an affordable way to get a great-looking banner. The base for our standard banners is made of aluminum with stabilizing feet that swing perpendicular to the base and support the banner once installed. These feet can swing parallel to the base for compact and easy traveling.

Our premium retractable banners have a base that adds a professional touch to your display. The premium base stabilizes itself without any supporting feet like our standard base. The premium base also has chrome end caps to make your banner stand look sophisticated.

Our deluxe retractable banners are the best way to show off your company’s brand and offering. Like our premium base, the deluxe base features sleek chrome end caps and self-stabilizes without rotating feet. Additionally, our deluxe retractable is the only retractable banner to feature double-sided printing.

Looking for Double-sided Retractable Banners?

Double Sided banners

Sometimes, you may need a retractable banner with a graphic on both sides. Our deluxe retractable banners are double-sided and are great for trade shows, hallways, receptions, and other areas where you need a banner with bidirectional visibility.

Double-sided retractable banners use the same support pole as single-sided retractable banners. A rail is fixed to the top edge of both banners, which rests on the hook at the top of the pole system. Double-sided retractable banners can be printed with the same design on both sides, or you can print a different design on each side.

Choose from Vinyl or Fabric Material

Our retractable banners — standard, premium, and deluxe — allow you to choose between vinyl or fabric material.

Our vinyl retractable banners are made from 13 oz. smooth vinyl, printed with durable UV ink, and have a glossier finish than fabric. This material can be easily cleaned with a damp, non-abrasive cloth.

Our retractable fabric banners are made from UV fabric and are printed using a dye-sublimation process. These banners have a matte finish. The material can be spot-cleaned or machine-washed once removed from the stand. See our FAQs below for more details.


*A carrying case is included with each retractable banner.

You can add an LED light(s) to your order when ordering your retractable banners. This light easily attaches to the top of your retractable banner, your graphic better visibility.

*48" x 92" premium, 60" x 92" premium, and 33" x 81" deluxe retractable banners offer two (2) LED lights only.

Fast & Easy Set Up

It only takes a minute or two to set up your retractable banner requires. The only assembly needed is removing everything from the carrying case, locking the pole, pulling the banner out of the aluminum base, and then attaching it to the support pole. If you purchase a display light, you can attach it to the top of the stand/banner. You’ll have a professional pop-up banner for your display or event in just a few minutes. Reverse the process, and you’re walking out of the show with your retractable banner in its carrying case.

Begin by removing the retractable banner base

Begin by removing the retractable banner base and poles from the carrying case.

Assemble the poles

Assemble the pole(s) by connecting the two ends, sliding the sleeve of the top piece over the narrower end of the bottom piece like you would a tent pole.

Insert the bottom of the poles

Insert the bottom of the pole(s) into the base’s hole(s). Ensure that the bottom of the pole(s) firmly touches the bottom of the base’s hole(s).

Carefully pull out the banner from the retractable base

Carefully pull out the banner from the retractable base and attach the rung of the banner to the top of the pole(s).

Extend the adjustable top half of the poles

Extend the adjustable top half of the pole(s) to the required height for your banner. Twist the pole clockwise to lock the height into place. If you are setting up the deluxe retractable banner, you will have to carefully pull out the back side of the banner and attach the top rung to the mounting clips at the top of the pole.



Assuming the setup and removal are done correctly, your retractable banner requires little to no care and maintenance. Retracting the banner into the aluminum base will protect the material (fabric or vinyl) from potential damage between uses. Furthermore, storing your stand, pole, and light within the padded case should prevent damage between uses. Stains can either be wiped away with a damp cloth (vinyl and fabric) or laundered under extreme circumstances (fabric only), as explained in more detail in our FAQ section.

When displaying and taking down your retractable banner, do so with care. Slowly pull out and retract the graphic in and out of the base while maintaining the graphic centered on the base. Don’t let the graphic rapidly retract or snap back into the base, whether centered or uncentered. Doing so may cause permanent damage to your graphic and/or base. Carefully install the pole to the base and top of the graphic. Mishandling the pole or using of it beyond its intended purpose may cause permanent damage, and may render the banner unusable.

Is the case included with the retractable banner? What about the LED Light?
Asked a year ago by Signs
Yes, the standard, premium (hard shell or rigid), and deluxe carrying cases are included with a retractable banner order, but the LED Light(s) is not. The LED display light can be added to your order for an additional cost on the design tool or shopping cart pages by selecting it as an option. Two LED lights are available for the two larger premium versions as well as the deluxe version. The rest of the banners come with only one LED light if purchased.
Is the included carrying case the same for the standard, premium, and deluxe banners? Can I use the case interchangeably?
Asked a year ago by Signs

While all three retractable banners come with an included carrying case, the cases are different for each type of banner as well as specific to the banner size. They are not interchangeable.

The standard (both sizes) case is much simpler in nature. It is more like a gym bag or tent pole bag that doesn't have any rigidity. While not as protective as the premium case, it does include some padding. One end of this case zips open and your retractable banner and support pole slide into the bag. It will not fit an LED light or lights if purchased. It has two sewn in handles or a smaller shoulder strap for transport needs.

The premium case (all three sizes) is a padded, hard shell case with some rigidity and is in the rough shape of a rectangle. It has two zippers and opens up like a suitcase. The base, rolled up banner, support pole, and LED light(s) (if purchased) easily fit inside this case. The interior of the case features multiple pockets for poles as well as two velcro straps to hold the stored banner in place during transport. The premium case features sewn handle as well as a shoulder strap for easy travel.

The deluxe case is somewhere in between the standard and premium cases. It is not rectangular in shape nor does it have as much rigidity as does the premium case. It zips open on one end to slide in the support pole and your base with retracted banners. The interior is padded and the one end of the exterior has a leather finish. There is an additional side pocket for extra storage. It has two sewn in handles and a shoulder strap for easy transport.

How many poles are included with the retractable banner?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Included with the 36"x92" and 48"x92" versions is a single pole for supporting the retractable display, while the 60"x92" size has two poles included with the support base. Both the Standard and Deluxe retractable banners only have one pole.

Do you sell just the bases themselves?
Asked a year ago by Signs
We currently do not sell the bases by themselves online. If you need a replacement base or stand as a standalone item please contact us. We recommend you either order a new retractable banner or have a professional swap your graphic as this process can easily damage your banner and may cause injury if not done properly.
Will my banner and its accessories arrive in the same box?
Asked a year ago by Signs
Yes, your retractable banner, base stand, carrying case and LED display light(s) (if you purchased this option) will all ship and arrive to your desired location in the same box.
Can I use my retractable banner outside? Any exceptions or restrictions?
Asked a year ago by Signs

While our retractable banners are built for indoor use, they can be used outdoors for short periods of time. The vinyl banner is your best choice since it's more durable for outside conditions. However, we highly recommend that you refrain from using your retractable banner outside during inclement weather, especially when there are high winds, heavy rainfall and sustained cold temperatures.

Will my retractable banner fade, scratch or wrinkle?
Asked a year ago by Signs

With all of our banners, we use durable materials and quality ink, lending to retractable banners that don't fade and are scratch resistant, unlike cheap, low-quality banners. Of course, with any sign there will eventually be some fading, but with the ink we use, your custom banner should remain vibrant for several years down the road.

Will the base of my retractable banner be easily damaged?
Asked a year ago by Signs

The base itself, which is a durable metal stand, shouldn't have any problems with damage. It is a sturdy base that provides excellent stability for your retractable banner. But like we explain below, you should never place anything on top of your retractable banner or stand. Also, make sure to strap it into the case (premium case only) before storing and traveling with the banner.

What are the typical uses for retractable banners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
The most common uses for retractable banners are in tradeshow display booths and at events and conferences to advertise and promote business products and services. They are also great to use in presentations and point of purchase displays because they are eye-catching and really draw in the attention of everyone who passes by them. Further, at events and conferences they can be used for directional signage, sign in tables and more.
Can I reuse my retractable banner?
Asked a year ago by Signs

Yes! Our retractable banners are quite durable and can be used repeatedly. Simply store them as per the instructions below and you should have no issue using these banners again and again for years to come. If you'd like to change out the graphic in your retractable stand, we would recommend printing one from us and then having a professional reinstall it into the base.
