Custom 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 hinged frame allows you to easily change up the graphics on your display.

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.
