pull-up roller bannerA Pull-Up Roller Banner makes you look good, it creates a stunning display wherever you go in seconds and gets you seen.

Before answering the main question about the pull-up roller banner you are considering, answer the following…
Why do you want it?
What do you want it to do?
Where are you going to use it?
How long do you want it to last?

Then remember the well known phrase…. “You only get what you pay for!”

Being lightweight and easy to carry, a Pull-up Roller Banner is completely portable and very simple to use, an essential marketing tool for any business.

The pull-up roller banner is retracted inside the canister and it is pulled out and fixed in place with a telescopic pole clipped in place. Very easy to put up and down very quickly and they come with a free carry case!!!

Prices vary considerably –

Like everything else available on the internet at very different prices. However, two main issues to consider when comparing prices of roller banners are the mechanisms and the vinyls used.cartridges for pull-up roller banner

To begin with the cheaper banner stand unit, the canister the banner sits in, can be very cheaply made, often from China. These may be great for a real bargain but are unlikely to last more than a few weeks. The mechanism will jam or break. The metal may bend or it just may not work properly. The mechanism is self winding so has to run smoothly or the banner will get caught and tear.
Cassette mechanisms range in quality and can be made of lightweight plastic which breaks easily but are more often made of ‘durable’ and ‘high grade’ ‘silver anodised aluminium.

Secondly, the quality of the vinyl used varies from supplier to supplier. The cheaper economy banner stands are printed on vinyls of 125 microns (thickness) whereas the premium alternatives can use 400 microns and are fire resistant.

The cheap vinyls will curl badly, the colour will fade and being thin they tear or damage easily.

designs for pull-up roller bannerThe pull-up roller banner should be laminated to protect from scratches and tears. The inks used should be UV stable so fading will not occur and the graphics should be photo quality.

The cheapest price I’ve seen recently is on special offer for £29.99. The same size banner is also offered at £89.99 from another company, so it is very important to check the specifications.

* Size – standard sizes are 800 x 2000mm. They can be slightly taller and there are several widths available up to around 2metres.
* What material is it printed on?
* Is it laminated?
* Is it guaranteed, and for how long?

Design costs for pull-up roller bannersANG pull-up roller banner

The cost of actually designing a pull-up roller banner will also vary considerably. A print company who produces the banners in house will often supply the design for free or for a much smaller cost than a graphic designer. A good graphic designer will create a bespoke banner for you and your specific needs. It should match any branding you have existing and communicate exactly what you need it to and to the right people.

A printer who supplies the pull-up roller banner will usually cover the cost for the design work in the banner price. However, generally they will not spend the same amount of time and effort on it’s design as the designer you are paying to create such an important element of your advertising and marketing campaign.

 

A Good Quality Pull-up Roller Banner Attracts Attention!

Spending a little more will ensure you you have an eye catching attractive banner which will stand out in a room full of your competitions and get you noticed. It will last longer than the exhibition and you will be proud to use it again and again.

A Pull-up Roller Banner is one of the best ways to promote your business in a networking environment or exhibition.

It announces your presence to the room, let’s people know you are there or creates a target for someone looking for your services attracting them to come and find out more information.

Getting it right therefore is essential.  Choosing a cheap banner on price may not be as much of a bargain as you originally thought. So for the extra quality it’s worth paying that little bit more.
