Banner Stands

Pop up banner replacement graphics are an easy way to freshen up an old display.

Do you have an old stand and need new graphics?

A good quality banner stand is, generally speaking, made for more than a single use.  You might have only needed your graphic for a single event, or maybe just one season.  Other times, you’ve purchased a pop up stand for a specific deal or event.  Once that special event, deal, or promotion has passed you might not have need of that particular stand again.  But while the graphic inside the stand may no longer be appropriate, the actual hardware (the physical base and pole of the stand) should still be in good condition.  If this is the case, it is a simple thing to simply update the graphics.

We can print and install a new piece of vinyl into the stand.

KCBGraphics.com is a leading supplier of banner stands and trade show products in Toronto, Ontario.  Please take a look at our replacement graphics for banner stands and don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-350-7152.

Why Do I Need Pop Up Banner Replacement Graphics?

First of all, reusing a pop up banner stand will save you money.  You’ll pay for graphics and installation, but the hardware is already yours.

There are many reason why you may need new pop up banner replacement graphics printed.  As I said above, maybe the specific event or promotion has passed.  Maybe you’ve had a change of location and therefore need to update your contact info.  Finally, maybe your logo has had a redesign and you simply want your designs to be fresh and current.

If the actual hardware of the pop up stand is in good condition, we can simply print up a new banner for you.  Installation of the new vinyl graphic can happen two ways.  Either ship or deliver your stand to us and we can install it, or we’ll ship the graphic to you and give you information on how to install it yourself.  (Here is a post about changing the graphics on either an Advance or Imagine style pop up stand.  The process is similar for most stands, but not exact.  If you now the type of stand you have, please let your printer know when you order your graphics.)

 

What Do I Need To Provide?

To begin with, if you know the name of the type of stand you have, great.  There are a lot of different makes and models of pop up banners.  Height and width changes for all of them, in addition to how the pop up banner replacement graphic attaches to the bottom of the stand.  Some will be fixed to the base using what is called a ‘j-strip’ while others are fixed to a leader strip using a heavy duty adhesive.

What we, or any other printer would need, is the graphic size.  When your pop up banner is set up, what is the width of the vinyl?  Also, what is the height from the very top right down to the base?  Provide us these dimensions, and we’ll add on a few inches to the make sure the banner will retract into the base.

Next, you get to choose the type of material you’d like this printed on.  You can choose from 2 options here, either an economy 12 oz Smooth Vinyl, or a premium 10 oz Stay Flat Decolit.

Base pricing assumes that you have your own designs already created.  If you need us to put together the design for you please let us know.  We can work with you to make sure your logo, branding, and images are the best they can be.

If you want a stand capable of handling the outdoors, our Custom Outdoor Banner Stands are for you.  These stands are perfect for outdoor events, farmers markets, sidewalks, or booths at festivals.  With 3 different outdoor stands and 2 unique sidewalk signs, we have you covered.

Custom Outdoor Banner StandCustom Outdoor Banner Stands

First, let’s talk about the custom outdoor banner stands.  We carry 3 different models: the Blizzard, the Spring 5, and the Thunder.  Both the Spring 5 and the Thunder are either single or double-sided displays.  The Blizzard is only available as a single-sided unit.

You can fill the bases of both the Blizzard and the Spring 5 with either sand or water to weigh them down.  You can stake the Thunder to the ground to help against wind (though that obviously doesn’t work on pavement).

Both the Blizzard and the Spring 5 are a spring back stand.  They have grommets in the corners.  The Thunder, by comparison, is a retractable stand.  For more info on the differences of these types, by see our previous post here.

You can use each of these 3 stands for outdoor use, though please use common sense.  Yes, they can handle moderate wind and you can weigh them down.  But if a heavy storm comes down around it would be best to bring them in.  You can use any of these in an outdoor market, on a sidewalk, or in an outdoor festival.  While the Blizzard and the Spring 5 can handle some rain, water can damage the mechanisms in the Thunder.

Outdoor Sidewalk Signs

These signs stand on their own and are suitable for outdoor events.  Like the custom outdoor banner stands, these 2 sidewalk signs have some differences I should mention.  The 2 models are called the Synergy and the Whirlwind.

You can use both models as double or single-sided displays.  The Whirlwind (like the custom outdoor banner stands) can be filled with water or sand for added weight.  The Synergy is a lighter model also known as an A-Frame.  While it can handle a bit of wind, it will go down if the weather picks up.

Both the Whirlwind and the Synergy use a snap frame to secure your printed graphics.  This means the edge of the frame clamps the graphic in place, allowing you to replace the artwork easily and on-site.

The Whirlwind is slightly different than the Synergy.  You can fill its hollow base with sand or water, and it has two strong springs so it can flex with the wind.  When the base is full of water or sand this stands weighs about 80 lbs, enabling it to withstand stronger weather than the Synergy.

Changing existing graphics on the Whirlwind is simple and easy

 

All the custom outdoor banner stands and signs include full colour printed graphics.  We print on 13 ox scrim vinyl for the outdoor banner stand graphics.  We print the sidewalk signs on a thin, pvc material and laminate it for extra protection.  There is also a clear mylar sheet that sits within the snap frame.   As always, if you have questions about any our products, feel free to contact us for more details.

Banner Bug Pull Up Banners

 

 

Banner Bug Pull Up Banners

We get quite a few calls about people looking for banner bug pull up banners.  Quickly, we realize that what the customer really wants is a simple retractable banner stand.  The banner bug is the top of the line, but maybe what you’re looking for is more along the lines of an Econo Tough?  They’ve heard the term banner bug, and think it applies to pull up stands across the board.  This isn’t the case.  If you’re looking to buy a car, you don’t necessarily jump right into a Porsche.  (Although, that would be pretty cool…)

A banner bug pull up banner is just one of the premium models we offer.

We also offer a broad array of stands in the value priced and standard pull up banner categories.

Or, if you are in fact looking for a premium stand, you may want to consider are the Imagine and the Barracuda.  We also offer two double-sided models, the Advance and the Excalibur, that have a banner graphic on both sides.  Like the Banner Bug Pull Up Banners, all of our  premium banner stands are worth the cost, well-made, durable, and meant to last.

 

So, What Makes it Premium?

Banner Bug Pull Up BannersWe’ve written before on the low quality stands and the difference between the models.  There can be such a difference between a low quality stand that costs $99 and a premium stand that costs $300.  If you only need a stand for a single use event, a standard or even a value priced stand might might your needs.

But if you’re looking for a retractable stand to showcase your company, brand, or products for months (or even years) to come it’s worth checking out your options.  A higher quality stand travels better, lasts longer, and is far more durable.  This is what premium banner stands like the Banner Bug, Imagine, or Advance can offer.

All of our retractable stands have a base, a pole, a top rail, printed full colour graphics, and a convenient carrying bag or case.  Each pull up banner stand comes fully assembled and ready for you to take on the road.

 

Okay, But How Are The Graphics?

We use two different types of vinyl for our retractable stands and pull up banners.

  • Our Value Priced Banner Stands come with your full colour graphics printed on a 12 oz. Economy vinyl.
  • For both our standard and premium stands, we use a 10 oz. Decolite Stay Flat vinyl.  (This, of course, includes the Banner Bug Pull Up Banners.)

The Decolite is a better, but slightly thinner, product.

 

What Does it all Mean?

Well, in the end, if you go looking for a standard banner stand and only look at the Banner Bug line of premium stands, you might be daunted by the price range.  Just keep that in mind as you shop.  If you want the best in quality banner stands, by all means, get the Banner Bug.  You won’t be disappointed.  But if you’re looking for something more economical, maybe take a look at our standard or value priced stands.

As always, if you want to speak with someone about this topic, give us a call.
