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