What is a banner?
We’ll look at different types of display banners, specifically long strips of display material with a slogan or design intended to represent a company, organization, government, or other entity. They are important for establishing a brand’s presence at events, conferences, and festivals, as well as making your brand stand out.
Though the dictionary describes banners as being made of cloth, a banner can now be made of a variety of materials, each with varying degrees of thickness, pliability, and durability. Banners are distinguished from flags by the manner in which they are displayed, rather than by color, shape, or design. A banner will be attached at both ends, whereas a flag will be attached to a post or pole on only one side.
A few of the most popular types of display banner types 🙂
1. Pull-Up, Roll up & Retractable Banners
The first type of display is a pull up banner or roll up. A banner stand is one that you can easily pull up and set up in a matter of seconds. They are also known as roll up or roller banner stands and are typically 2 meters high with varying widths depending on your needs. Pull-up or roll-up banners are an attractive, double-sided solution for forums, trade shows, and corporate events, as well as indoor retail signage. Pull-up banners are lightweight and easy to transport.
2. Pop-Up Booths and Displays
Pop up booths, also called portable displays, are single or double-sided display systems that allow you to display high-quality, eye-catching graphics, often in a larger format than other, smaller booth displays
Guess what pop-up displays do? They “pop” up! Often made of fabric, these are only banners in the loosest sense of the word, but they have the same end-goal as traditional banners: getting people’s attention. Often, pop-up booths are used to extend across the entire back of an exhibition’s shell.
3. Backdrop Step and Repeat Banners
Backdrop banners are also known as step and repeat banners. They are commonly used as a backdrop for photo shoots, press releases, red carpet events, weddings, school proms, sporting events and grand openings. The backdrop banners typically have event sponsors and company logos on the background image.
4. Branded Feather Flag Hanging Banners
Feather flag banners are the perfect outdoor and indoor signage solution for drawing attention to your business, product, or promotion. The flag is made from a 4 oz. polyester material, which is weather resistant and extremely durable, making it perfect for using outdoors.
5. Mesh Banners
Mesh banners are signs with small holes to allow wind to pass through. Correctly, they are primarily used as one sided signs outside. Created with UV, abrasion resistant ink, they are more expensive than vinyl and resistant to tearing.
6. Textile Fabric Banners
Fabric banners, which are typically made of polyester or satin, offer stunning full-color graphics that will captivate and awe. These displays, which are machine-washable and crease-resistant (unlike vinyl banners), are the ideal solution for any business that requires a high-quality banner with little or no setup time.
The eye-catching radiance of a fabric banner, on the other hand, can be tarnished outdoors, so we recommend using them only indoors. Trade shows, sporting events, grand openings, housing promotions, and presentations, on the other hand, are all fair game. Benefits of different Types of Display Banners
