How to use roller banner stands
Although the stands may vary, the setup is basically the same for all the different types. It’s basically just a matter of taking the stand out of its carrying case. Then you place the stand wherever you want the display to be. When the stand is in the correct place, you simply attach the pole to it, roll out the banner and fasten it to the top of the pole. If there are poor lighting conditions, you may want to add in a supplementary lighting system.
When you are ready to dismantle your display, all you have to do is unclip the banner from the pole. Usually it will automatically feed itself back inside the cassette for safe storage. However, some may require that you manually roll the banner back into the cylinder. Either way, you’ll need to wipe the dust and moisture off the banner before retracting it, so it’ll be ready to use next time. Once you have the banner retracted, you merely place it back in its carrying case and store it in a cool, dry area.
