Differences between retractable banner stands

Our retractable banner stands are different in the size of the banner, the design of the base, the weight and the printing materials. You should choose depending on time of use, design preferences, available space and budget. There are various retractable banner stand models and qualities to choose from. Here you'll find an overview of all our retractable banner stands and banner stands.

Differences between vinyl and mesh vinyl banners

Vinyl banners are classic advertising banners made of firm and even material, which is commonly known as truck tarpaulin. The Mesh vinyl material banner has approx. 1mm big, evenly distributed holes therefore it is recommended when used in higher wind loaded places like bridges, scaffolds, construction sites and other free standing places of use, because the material structure lowers the wind load because of a higher air permeability. Both materials are hardly flammable certified (fire safety classification B1, which is mandatory on many indoor events). You can select different options on the product page for an custom manufactured and printed banner. If you prefer a lighter material, you can also find fabric and textile banners in our online shop.

What is the difference between standard and premium banner printing?

The standard printing is especially suitable when the banner will be used for scaffold covering, advertising on buildings and houses, logo illustration etc. The printing quality is 300x300 dpi (dots per inch). When the viewing distance is 2m or more the viewer gets a photorealistic impression. The premium printing is high-resolution, because it is printed with 720x720 dpi. It is also photorealistic in close range and ideal for detailed graphics and photos.

Double cut stickers

If possible do not place small fonts / texts, logos or fine lines in the cutting area. We produce your sticker with a 5mm overlap. While attaching you can make a double cut between the two adhesive parts to ensure an accurate overall picture.

How to make a double cut:

1. First you attach the first part of your sticker on the wished surface. Then attach the other sticker part with a 5mm overlap to the first to make a fitting overall motif.
2. Now make a cut along the middle of the overlap (dividing both foils) with the help of a cutter and a cutting ruler.
3. Now you can take off the cut sticker strip of the top sticker from the lower adhesive.
4. Detach the upper sticker a few millimetre at the cut line and remove the small cut strip of the lower sticker, too.
5. Stick the (peeled off a few millimetre in the last step) upper sticker back to the surface and run a squeegee along the cut line. The printed sticker parts should result in a homogeneous motif.



Printing

Swatch material

If you wish to see our offered materials in advance, e.g. to check the structure or colour intensity, you can send us an e-mail to [email protected]. We will send you the requested printed swatch materials for free via mail.

When and how do the colours change?

To all printings a permanent chemical process occurs, which leads to colour changes. Also UV radiation has influence on the printed material. This also includes displays, banners and stickers used indoors (e.g. shop window or window) and red will become magenta by time for example.
Also printing and technical features are subject to a certain tolerance in the production process. That‘s why reprints and new printings, which were made later, appear different than the original colours and differ from the first print. These factors are especially important for exhibition displays, when single strips are ordered. If the colour compatibility is of high priority, we recommend to order a proof in advance. This allows you to counteract colour values and adjust them in your file, if necessary.

Proof / preprint

To check the colour reproduction of your file, you can order a preprint in advance. We recommend a proof especially for same motifs, colours and/or photos, which should be printed on different materials. If you need a certain colour, we recommend a colour chart. For that you can create a file with 10 different variants of a colour shade (e.g. small squares with the corresponding CMYK values). An example you can find here (PDF). The preprint is offered in DIN A3 format (29.7x42cm). Please note that the shipping date of your original order postpones.

Colour conversion

Special and spot colours like Pantone, RAL, HKS and real gold and silver shades are not possible in digital printing. They will be converted, resp. simulated, automatically to CMYK. We can give no guarantee for colour deviations caused by conversion.
Please note that special colours are never 100% accurate in digital printing. If colour accuracy is of high priority, we recommend a proof / preprint in advance.
