Retractable banner stands and zip stands provide the same service; they both take up a little amount of space and display your information in an attention grabbing way. Both stands travel easily and can help bring interest to the foreground of your booth.
Retractable Banner Stands
Retractable banner stands come in a width of 2-5 feet and a standard height of 82 inches. The set up is extremely easy for one person. Just assemble the pole, twist it into the base, and pull the banner up to attach it to the top of the pole. It is that simple and can be viewed here. They work well for anyone looking for a convenient or quick set up, while not sacrificing sophistication. The banner can not be replaced if damaged, as it is all one unit.
Zip stands come in a width of 2-20 feet and have a standard height of 8 feet. There is also a 10 foot height option which helps grab attention while remaining within tradeshow height limits. The set up is simple, you can check out a video here. Graphics can be switched as easily as putting a pillowcase onto a pillow. These are great for multiple events as they are durable and changeable.
Comparing the stands to each other
The retractable banner stand has a much faster set up time. It is made with a low curl vinyl that reflects light, making it difficult for flash photography, but great for in person displays. Zip stands are made from a polyester fabric that absorbs light better than the retractable banner stand. The zip stand takes a little longer to set up, but if you are going to be using this for multiple events or seasonal displays, the setup time is worth the finished product.
Double sided options
Both stands have a double sided option where you can have the same or different images on each side. The zip stand also has an option for a light blocking liner which is great for bright lighting situations, eliminating any “see-through” effect. When navigating the website, the double sided retractable banner stand is its own product because the base is different from the one sided retractable stand.
