A sidewinder banner stand is an excellent choice for those who run a
store or attend exhibitions. As these banner stands are extremely
portable, it is possible to promote your business on the streets or at a
convention without having to dedicate a massive amount of space.
However, in order to make the most out of your banner, there are a few
things that you will need to keep in mind. Effective marketing is not
only having the best tools to advertise with, but knowing how to send
your message to the highest number of people possible with one sign.
However, it is also important to acknowledge that one banner may not be
able to do everything.
The first step to picking out your ideal sidewinder banner stand is to
know what sizes of banner the stand is compatible with. If you are
purchasing a replacement stand, having a stand that matches your banner
sizes is extremely important. In order for the tensioning mechanisms to
function properly, the banner must be the correct size. Because of this,
many companies will often decide to have new banners created to match
their new stands. When you purchase your stand, you will need to decide
if ordering new banners is the correct choice for you to make. While
using old banners with a new stand can save you money, older banners may
not be as effective at advertising to your market.
Once you know what size banner your new sidewinder banner stand is
compatible with, you will need to determine just how portable your stand
needs to be. Will you be using your banner outside of a store? If so,
the banner stand only needs to be portable enough to bring into the
store after hours. As sidewinder stands are not designed to be permanent
stands, it is important that you do not try to make the stand function
in a way that it was not intended. While resilient against damage, these
stands were not designed to survive constant exposure to the elements.
If you are in need of a permanent banner stand, you may want to choose a
different style of banner stand so that you can get the highest level
of performance and durability. There are several factors you should
account for when you are picking out your stand. Weight, packed size and
ease of construction are all factors that determine how portable a
After you have purchased your sidewinder banner stand, it is important
that you take steps to properly maintain it. When your stand is not in
use, you should pack it away in its storage case. Proper storage of your
stand will help ensure that it will function smoothly when you need it
at an exhibition. When you are installing your banner, make certain that
it is fixed firmly into place on the stand. This is important, as the
tensioning mechanisms require a strong hold on the banner. When you use
your stand, make certain that the banners you select are strong enough
to withstand the tension of the banner stand. Flimsy paper banners are
prone to tearing when used with strong tensioned banner stands.
