So you’ve got a retractable banner stand that is still in good condition, but the graphics are for an old promotion or event. Do you have a new event approaching, but want to reuse the stand? Good news. You can. Pull up banner replacement graphics are easy to create, and can bring life to an old stand.
You can reuse most retractable banner stands. The old graphics can be removed and a new banner installed.
KCBGraphics.com is a leading supplier of banner stands and trade show products in Toronto, Ontario. If you need pull up banner replacement graphics check out our products here, send us an email, or give us a call at 1-800-350-7152.
We offer 2 different options for printing. Our premium replacement graphics are printed on a high quality, stay flat vinyl. We also offer an economy option, printed a slightly lower quality vinyl for those on a tight budget. Both economy and premium are printed in full colour. There are three size options for each, depending on the width of pull up banner replacement graphics. Choose from up to 33″ wide, 41″ wide, or 51″ wide.
With so many stands available, how do you know you’ll get a replacement banner that fits perfectly? Knowing the size of your retractable banner stand is key.
So, first off, if you know the name or type of stand you have let your printer know too. It may be written on the base somewhere, or maybe there’s still an info sheet in the carry bag. This will help your printer and designer make sure they get the sizing correct.
If you don’t know the type of stand (or even if you do), set the current stand up and measure the current graphic.
You’ll want the width, and the height. For the height, take it from the bottom where the stand slips inside the base. Go right to the top, including the top rail. Your printer and designer will want to know these measurements to make sure they print the proper bleeds for your banner stand replacement graphics.
Some top rails require a 1/2 inch bleed. Others will need 3/4. This can change from stand to stand. If you can measure your top rail, it would be great for your designer and printer to know that too.
We can install the new graphics if you want, or we can ship you your pull up banner replacement graphics on their own for you to install. Depending on your experience with banner stands, replacing the graphics can be tricky. The way to do this can change slightly stand to stand. They are usually similar, but not all exactly the same. Here is a post about changing the graphics on either an Advance or Imagine style pop up stand.
In short, you need a table or space large enough to fully extend the banner stand. Hopefully, you still have a locking pin (a small metal pin attached the bottom of the stand).
This pin will be needed to lock the spring mechanism inside the base. Once extended, the pin goes in the small hole on one of the sides of the base. It will stop the cartridge inside from turning. If you do not have a pin, you can MacGyver it with a small Allen key or sturdy metal pin. Just find one that will fit in the side hole to lock the mechanism.
One person should hold the base while another pulls the banner out as far as it will go. About 6 inches below the bottom of the artwork, you should see where the printed vinyl banner is attached to the base. This should be a leader strip of some sort, a piece of material or vinyl that remains on the spring loaded mechanism. Pull the banner so that where the current banner stand graphics attaches to this leader strip is visible. With the banner still extended, insert the locking pin to stop the banner from retracting.
You may have to pull the banner or let it slide in a little bit to find the hole to lock the mechanism.
Brilliant. Now, with the pin securely in place, remove the old graphic. Peel it away from the still attached leader strip. The tape may be old and gunky, but with a little patience the old banner will come off. Then, simply attach the new graphic. Take care to ensure you’ve got it the right way around, that the front faces front.
You will also need to remove the top rail from the old banner, and attach it to the new. This will either be taped in place, have a j-strip, or be clamped in place.
The tape will need at least 12 hours to fully bond. Leave it overnight, and retract it in the morning. Again, have one person to hold the firmly top of the banner. Another person should hold the base. When you’re ready, remove the locking pin. You’ll feel the tension immediately spring back onto the stand. Slowly allow the new graphic to slide back into the base. Done and done.
As I mentioned above, different stands can be slightly different here. You can face other problems, like a broken and cracked leader strip or a faulty mechanism. Other stands use Velcro instead of tape.
Once you’ve installed your new pull up banner replacement graphics, your banner is ready to go. You’ve saved a bit of cash, and your old stand is like new again. Keep your stand in good condition, and you could get many different uses out of it.
If you want to quickly and easily portray your company in a trade show setting, you should be using stand up banners. These banner stands are a great addition to any event, working in conjunction with your trade show booth or display.

You’ve seen them around. Lobbies and markets, malls and hotels. They do well in small spaces, creating interest when done well, but truly shine when used alongside other pieces. Stand up banners are simple retractable stands. They present information and inform viewers about your brand, specials offers, or a unique product.
On average, they range from $140 – $400, though their are more premium models (like the Banner Bug) which can run up to $650.
In a trade show booth, alongside your display or back wall, stand up banners can help draw in potential interested customers from afar. They can catch the eye of someone passing by and make them into a customer. Often they can add depth to the larger back wall, providing you a way to enhance your presented information.
Generally, a trade show display will be an impactful image, but not contain much detailed information. The stand up banners are the next step, often offering up a little more in the way of detailed information. The third step would be creating take away items such as a brochure or pamphlet, which should have the most detailed information.
Stand up banners should come between the two. Keep this in mind while designing your stand.
There are many different makes and models here. They’re all lightweight and easily transported. Price point matters, as does the size. The standard sizes are around 31″ wide and 79″ – 84″ tall. If you want your stand up banners to be wider or taller, shorter, or even variable we can make that happen, but the price point will vary. Some have removable cartridges which make changing your graphic a breeze.
If you had any questions about which stand up banners are right for you, our expert staff is on hand to talk.
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.

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 know the type of stand you have, please let your printer know when you order your graphics.)
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.
