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.

Our standard retractable banners are an affordable way to get a great-looking banner.

These feet can swing parallel to the base for compact and easy traveling.

Deluxe

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 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.

How to Set-Up Your Retractable Banners

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.


Installation

Care

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.

Q:
Is there a certain file type I need to use when uploading my graphic(s) for my retractable banner?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
For large signs, such as retractable banners, we recommend vectorized designs or files. If you do not have a vector file then please use the highest resolution file you have. It is recommended that it be 200 dpi. We also offer free design services if you need design help getting your design created.
Q:
What is a retractable banner?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
A retractable banner is a sign enclosed in a metal base that can then be pulled out of the base for display purposes. These banners are a great marketing and advertising tool for companies and their products or services, so you typically see them at a lot of trade shows and events. They are made for indoor use but can be used outside if used for shorter periods of time and not during harsh weather conditions.
Q:
Are 'retractable banners' and 'pop up banners' the same thing?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

The terms "retractable banners" and "pop up banners" are typically used interchangeably within the signage industry. Both refer to the functionality of a retractable banner which rolls up into and pulls out of a metal retractable stand or base. Some other names for retractable banners are pull up displays, pull up banners, and roll up banners.

The only bit of confusion that may stem from these terms is that on occasion "pop up banner" is used by some to refer to what we call a "pop up display". A pop up display is a larger, more expensive, and functionally different product (no hard base and a three-dimensional appearance) albeit with a similar end use.

So long as it's clear that retractable banners and pop up banners are the same thing, the only thing you'll need to clarify is whether you want a standard, premium, or deluxe retractable banner. The primary differences between these three, as outlined fully in the next question, are the base, sizes offered, carrying case, and double sided functionality. You can select between standard, premium, and deluxe versions of the retractable banner by selecting the proper size on this page or the design tool. If you're still confused don't hesitate to contact us and we'd be happy to help!

Q:
What is the difference between your standard, premium, and deluxe retractable banners?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

Standard, premium, and deluxe retractable banners all allow for the choice between fabric and vinyl as the banner material. By their nature, the materials differ with the vinyl being a standard vinyl material and the fabric being a gray-backed coated polyester. The gray backing helps reduce backlight issues while the coating produces more vibrant printing. The gray backing is not visible when the fabric banner is displayed in your retractable banner. Beyond this, the primary difference between these versions is the base and double-sided functionality. The carrying case for each is also slightly different.

The standard retractable banner has a basic, albeit sturdy and reliable, base with feet on either end to provide stability when the banner is fully set up. When not in use these feet twist to hide from view and more easily store and/or be transported. Standard retractable banners come in two different sizes: 24"x81" and 33"x81". These banners also cost less when compared to the premium or deluxe versions. The standard retractable is single sided only. It also has a more simple carrying case than that of the premium and deluxe versions. The interior of the carrying case is padded.

Our premium retractable banners have an upgraded base with stepped hardware and chrome end caps to provide a more professional look to the assembled retractable banner. Premium retractable banners are offered in 24" x 92", 36"x92", 48"x92", and 60"x92" sizes. Premium banners are single sided and comes with a rigid carrying case as opposed to a soft case. The interior of the carrying case is padded.

The deluxe retractable banner option has an upgraded base with chrome endcaps and sleek attractive hardware. Its base functions similar to the premium version and doesn't have feet like the standard version. The premium version is only available in the size of 33"x81". The deluxe banner also allows you to have a double sided retractable banner unlike the standard or premium options. This is perfect for use when passing foot traffic is coming from both directions past the sign. The double sided functionality allows for the same thing to be printed on both sides or a different graphic for each side of the banner. The deluxe version comes with a soft carrying case that features a shoulder strap and a side pocket that may be used for extra storage. The interior of the carrying case is padded. All three banner types include a padded carrying case (differences noted above). A single LED light is available as an additional option for both standard banners and the 36"x92" premium versions. The two larger premium banners and the deluxe banner allow for the purchase of 2 LED lights.

Q:
Are retractable banners easy to move around?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes. Retractable banners are lightweight and portable, so they are easy for one person to move and reposition, as well as setup and takedown. We also provide a carrying case (the cases for standard, premium, and deluxe, banners differ and are explained in full detail in the previous question) with either a shoulder strap or handles that makes traveling with your banner to and from trade shows and other events as easy as carrying a lightweight duffle bag.
Q:
What materials can my graphic be printed on? What are the differences and advantages of these materials?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:

You can print your graphic on vinyl or fabric. Vinyl is the more affordable option of the two and has more of a matte finish, while fabric banners are more vibrant due to the coating applied to the fabric before printing. Vinyl is also a durable outdoor option since the material is water and fade resistant, but it can also be used indoors. Our fabric material is a great indoor option, and it's also scratch resistant and has curl-free edges. Despite vinyl typically being used outdoors, if your end use is extended or permanent outdoor use we recommend our standard vinyl banners instead of a retractable banner with the vinyl option.

Q:
Can your retractable banners be double sided?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes! Our deluxe retractable banners are double sided so you can get your graphic on either side. You have the option to have one design on both sides of your banner stand or have separate designs, one on each side of the stand. Our standard and premium retractable banners cannot be double sided. For those two options we only print on one side of the banner.
Q:
How is my graphic attached to the retractable banner?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
After being digitally printed, the banner (vinyl and fabric) is then attached to the retractable portion of the banner stand which is found inside of the aluminum base that sits on the floor. You then pull your banner up and out of the base unit before locking it into position with the adjustable pole.
Q:
Can I swap banners on the same stand?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Yes, whether you are using a vinyl or fabric banner you are able to switch out your banner. We strongly recommend having a professional exchange your graphics though because your retractable banner is spring-loaded and attempting to do this yourself without knowing how could cause damage to the base and possibly injury as well.
Q:
Is there anything over the top of the graphic to protect it?
Asked a year ago by Signs
A:
Nothing is printed over the top of your graphic. It is printed directly onto the vinyl or fabric material respectively.
