Wherever your business or your brand needs to attract local attention, a pull-up banner can be a great choice – so long as there are a few square feet of floor space available! The pull-up banner and its variants are the most versatile on-site advertising tools, ideal for temporary placements such as trade shows, conferences, sponsored events, pop-up shops, and social gatherings.
What is a pull-up banner?
A pull-up banner (also called roll-up banner or standee) is a plastic-sheet-based sign that is printed with relevant information for public display. It is portable and easy to install, owing to a spring mechanism that allows extension and retraction of the banner. When collapsed, it rolls up within a compact, lightweight unit.
Polypropylene (PP) and vinyl (PVC) are popular choices for pull-up banner roll media; ‘anti-curl’ sheets made of polyester fused with PVC are also gaining popularity. The combination of compact size, portability and durability make pull-up banners perfect for reuse across locations and events.
How big is a pull-up banner?
The average pull-up banner’s size ranges from 800mm-1000mm wide and 1400mm-2050mm tall.
An extra wide pull-up banner is also available measuring 1500mm wide x 2200mm tall.
How much does a pull-up banner cost?
The usual price range for a pull-up banner with a minimalist design and quality printing is between $320 and $590 (excluding GST) depending on the type of pull-up banner.
Additional printed copies are cheaper.
The use of double-sided printing, detailed content, multiple special graphics, and original photography will raise the costs.

Why should my business use an X banner?
What does an X banner cost?
An X banner is a low-cost alternative to a pull-up banner, making it preferable for lower-budget contexts where collapsibility is not a priority. This variant gets its name from the ‘X’-shaped stand (also known as a spider frame) used to hold the lightweight, fibreglass frame on which the actual banner is tensioned.
The materials used for X banners are similar to those used in pull-ups, and offer all the same advantages; the major difference is that X banners provide less display space compared to pull-up banners, owing to the structure of the X frame. It is especially advantageous when you need to change banners, as replacing the media takes just a few seconds.
When would a fabric banner stand be the best choice?
How much does a fabric banner cost?
Fabric banner stands are usually preferred for advertising in premium venues, such as in an upscale hotel lobby or a luxury retail outlet. The major attraction of fabric banners is their rich, textured look which is achieved by dye sublimation printing on fabric – this creates an overall better visual appeal compared to the ‘plasticky’ look of a pull-up banner. The cost of a fabric banner stand can vary depending on the need for custom graphics and original photography.
