Question On Banner Stand Heights

April 1st, 2008 by Bruce --> · 3 Comments

I know that retractable banner stands come in 36 and 48 inches wide, but can you get custom heights to them or is the size always full height or do you size the graphic only to the size you want it?

    Hi Dale,

    Most of the better banner stands can be created so that the graphics can be shown either full height or 1/2 height. You can set up your art work on the grid for your banner stand so what when 1 pole is used only the top half of the graphic is shown.
    It takes a bit of creative talent getting the grid set up correctly but when done right it is a beautiful thing. This is a great way of creating an inexpensive portable table top display with the added versatility of being able to use it full height when the need warrants it. Here’s a good example of a banner stand being used this way. Banner Stand Options

    If I wanted to do a mock up before sending to the graphics department– Is it best to have the photos taken at 10 megapixels when I send them to you. I just trying to figure out how to develop a mock up so I know what I’m going to order. Or do you provide a “template” of some type so I can build it first and get an idea of what I would be ordering?

    Yes there is an art grid where you would need to place your graphics to make sure they are the right size. I have attached an art grid for a dual height banner stand to this post so you can take a look. Remember that the art is needed full sized, it won’t look right with taking a photo from a website and stretching it out to banner stand size, you may need to talk to a graphic designer to get a better idea of the art requirements.
