Old-fashioned projector screens were the inspiration for retractable banner stands. The graphics are printed into think banner material that rolls up into the base using a spring-loaded roller similar to that found in projector screens and window blinds. A single pole that fastens into the base also holds the top banner upright. These poles are generally sturdy units of the telescoping variety, much like the poles used in the pole-frame system.
The rolling mechanism lends itself to give displays a nice heavy base that provides excellent support for the banner. Some units have bases that are quite wide in order to provide the necessary stability. Some units have two legs, and less-expensive models have one leg. These allow for smaller travel sized while still providing adequate support.
A great feature to have with your retractable banner stand is replaceable cassettes. This allows you to quickly and easily make changes to your banner stand for multiple uses show after show. The cassettes are easy to use and replace, saving you time and money.
Assembly of any of these units is very simple. Just put the poles into the base, pull the banner out of the base, attach it to the pole and extend the pole to the desired height. Since height is fully flexible, these stands can be used as floor units or as smaller table-top-displays.
