Banner stands provide a great solution when a free-standing, easy to assemble display is required. Although ideal in an indoor environment, most banners are not suitable for outdoor use due to the fact that the base is not suitably heavy to provide stability in windy conditions.
There are a number of outdoor banner stands on offer but our favourite is the Blizzard Banner Stand which uses a simple, hollow base that can be filled up with either sand or water in order to add weight and stability.
One of the great features of this outdoor banner stand is the ability to change the printed graphic panel over quickly and easily. This is because the printed panel is not ‘hard-wired’ onto the base and is secured using simply eyelets in the corners.
Printdesigns offer the Blizzard banner with a choice of printed graphic material. In the example above you can see a stand that has been printed onto a Mesh PVC. The porous material allows wind to diffuse through and when weighted with sand, the stand will cope with wind speeds of up to 18MPH.
In contrast, the example below was printed with a conventional PVC. Whilst providing a more opaque printed result, this material does not allow for wind to diffuse-through and so stability with a sand-weighted base is OK for wind speeds up to around 10MPH only.
Blizzard banner stands from Printdesigns are provided with carry bags as standard. Production on these items takes up to 5 working days as standard although we also offer a faster ‘express’ production service for rush orders whereby stands can be produced in 1-2 working days.
As well as outdoor banner stands like the Blizzard, we also provide a wide range of flags including teardrop and feather models all of which can be printed in house with our own dye sublimation print line. Just call us for more information and prices.
