Both options use an anodised aluminium base which the graphics are rolled into, making it quick to pull up the banner and secure in place using a pole at the reverse. The graphic panel for both are supplied on a 300 micron stoplight media that’s laminated to keep the graphics protected. Both the Sterling and Oxford Pull Up Banners are supplied with a fabric carry bag for easy transport and storage.

The Oxford Banner is provided at 2110mm high x 850mm wide. Also supplied with an aluminium base, the Oxford Banner Stand has an added feature of chrome finished end covers and adjustable feet.
If you’re looking for a printed display where the graphics can be changed as needed. The Switch Banner allows you to swap out the graphics by simply unhooking the graphic panel and attaching the new one. Banner Stands with changeable graphics are an eco-friendly alternative to regular pull up banners, as you can re-use the same hardware and switch out the graphics for different products, brands, events etc. The Switch Banner is available with 2 different materials for the printed graphics; 180 micron polypropylene or 600 micron block polyester fabric.
Our range of Eco-Friendly banner stands provide you with a recyclable display banner option. Within the range are 3 ranges; the Natural Banner, the Natural Folding Banner and the Eco Banner.
Natural Banners are supplied as either front, front and base or front, back and base printed. Manufactured from 4.5mm cardboard, unlaminated to provide a 100% recyclable option.
Natural Folding Banners are also manufactured from 4.5mm cardboard, and printed 1 side with a fold in the center. Pre-fitted support at the reverse allows for quick assembly in under 1 minute. The Natural Folding Banners are sold in packs of 2.
The Eco Banners are available in 3 sizes; 2000mm H x 800mm W (standard), 2000mm H x 1200mm W (stage banner) and 800mm H x 600mm W (desktop banner). Manufactured from 10mm Xanita fibreboard, laminated 1 side for protection.
Fabric banners are a great alternative when looking for a roller banner. The textile fabric provides a high quality print finish, available both single and double sided. With a few different styles and shapes to choose from, there is a wide range of sizes available, some of which providing a wider banner backdrop display. The stretch polyester fabric is complete with a zip at the base, which makes assembly super simple. The tubular frame simply slots together and the frame slips over the frame and zips shut. The fabric banners are so incredibly lightweight, making them easy to transport from show to show.
How are Roller Banners made?
Our Sterling Banners are made using anodised aluminium for the base and pole, with a 300 micron stoplight media for the print.
The Switch Banners use an aluminium pole, with a steel base, magnets and your choice of graphics, all crafted and printed by us.
The Natural and Eco Banner range are constructed from either 4.5mm cardboard or 10mm Xanita fibreboard, both of which are reliably sourced and sustainable.
As well as manufacturing the banner hardware, we also print all the graphics in-house too. We use 1200 dpi printers with water based inks, which are not only better for the environment but provide a higher quality print finish compared to solvent based inks. The media we use various across the ranges including 180 and 300-micron stoplight media which is then laminated with a 150-micron crystal matte laminate, that provides another layer of protection to the graphics to make them scratch and tear resistant. The Eco options are not laminated as we print directly onto the board to create a long-lasting environmentally friendly finish.
All our other banner stands are purchased from reputable manufacturers, who we have worked with for many years to ensure we only provide the best products to our customers.
Before each banner ordered is packed ready to be dispatched we assemble for a final quality check regardless of the type or size of the stand, so that we can make certain that every banner is of the highest calibre.
