What you need to know about roller banners

In an era of digital signage, integrated screens, apps and video content, are the days of traditional roller banners for exhibition use over? We don’t think so.

Digital signage is playing a bigger part in exhibitions and events than ever before, creating a cacophony of sound and moving images. What was cutting edge and stood you apart from the competition has now become the norm, with the impact being ever more diluted by the volume of businesses adopting the same approach ‘to be different’.

The Roller Banner still offers key advantages over digital signage in a myriad of ways; it’s designed for maximum impact at a minimal cost, offering a focused functional message and making it accessible to all businesses, from start-ups to multi-nationals. The very nature of roller banners means their height of over two metres guarantees visibility across a room.

Set up is simple, and can be easily achieved by one person in a matter of a few minutes. With no power supply required or weighty display units to be installed (unlike their digital counterparts), roller banners can be situated anywhere you have a flat floor.

Compact and lightweight, roller banners take little storage room when not in use; simply remove the back support pole, roll up the banner and slide it all back into the carry case the banner comes with. Often these cases feature shoulder straps, allowing the user to carry them easily without needing additional manpower for dismantling and transporting the display.

Roller banners are often (quite rightly) associated with exhibitions and events but they are also strong awareness drivers in car showrooms, shops, supermarkets, museums and leisure centres and even hotel and restaurant foyers.

The most common size of a roller banner is 850mm wide x 2000mm tall. Please also allow 100mm bleed to the bottom of your design only.

Aside from the amazing graphic display area, the main benefits of using roll up banners is the portability of the unit.

In addition to this, being under 40kg in weight, it is light enough for a single person to carry and install.
