A Look at Different Types of Banners Including Pull-Ups, A-frames, Pop-Ups and Flags

The advertising and marketing industry is well-known with coming up with new and exciting ways to showcase new products, sales and even great specials. These days, there are so many different point-of-sale options to choose from that no one would blame you if you found the whole thing a little confusing. Well now, you have your very own guide to every type of banner and promotional tool you can think of, and the benefits of using them.

Before you buy any type of banner, it is useful to remember that the banners we supply all have different purposes, and can be printed in different ways. Some are smaller, some are bigger, some simply pop up, and we make them this way specifically for what you want to use them for. All of these banners, no matter what they’re being used for, are designed with dignity and printed with pride and that is our stamp of excellence.

What Banners Should Be Used in Store?

If you’re planning on using banners in your store, you have a lot of options available to you depending on whether you want to catch someone’s eye, inform, persuade or just create something really cool. A category banner for example, that sticks out of an eye-level height shelf is perfect for catching the attention of shoppers walking down an aisle.

As previously mentioned, there are many different types of banners that can be used for just about anything and just about anywhere you want to catch people’s attention. Our banners are so versatile that you can let your imagination run free and use them in any way you want to. Here’s a little trade secret that may help you decide which banner you want: they can be printed in multiple colours, die cut to any shape or even made into lenticulars.

Types of Banners for Just About Any Use

A wobbler is also a great in store tool, and if placed correctly on the shelf, will get people really excited about your product or sale. In store, you may also want to consider using a pull up banner if you have an ongoing promotion and plan on having a promoter doing some sampling work for you. This type of banner is very clever indeed, since it consists of a round tube with a printed banner inside it that literally pulls up and secures to show off your message.

An A-frame banner for example, can be used on a large scale at the entrance of a store, or on a smaller scale where it is placed on a table as a promotional tool. One of the best types of banners to use is a flag, since this can be used just about anywhere either in a store or even outdoors. It can be stuck onto an item or a shelf, held by promoters or even printed larger than life to attract a lot of attention.

What Are Other Banners Used For?

They’re always eye-catching, and can be designed and printed to suit your needs and will always make you and your product look great. We take a sense of pride in every piece of work we print, no matter how small or large, so don’t hesitate to call us today. If you are planning on using flags, also consider trying out some bunting, a type of print that consists of many smaller flags that are strung together to span across a shelf and are very eye-catching.

So the next time you’re thinking of showing off your products or advertising a great sale, keep your eyes on our banners.

All You Need to Know About the Printing of Pop-Ups

No matter what industry you are in or what kind of job you have, you need the peace of mind of knowing that if you have a print job to be done, it will be done right. Using pop-ups at an expo, a conference or even in your offices is a great idea, unless they are not printed to standard. If this happens, what could be a great advertising and marketing tool just makes you and company look unprofessional.

Not only do we know this, but we live by the standard of excellence you expect. Pop-ups could make or break your business and considering the fact that we want you to keep coming back for more, and not regret the decision to print with us, we’ll make sure that your pop-ups really, well, pop! Your pop-ups, no matter how large or small should make a statement and it’s our job to make sure that statement is a positive one.

Why Use Pop-ups?

Printing pop-ups is not the easiest job in the world considering that they need to be dye cut. This means that, because they are all different shapes, we need to set the machines we use to a certain size and frame to accommodate that printing. This is something that will make your pop-ups look great, if it is done right.

These brilliant marketing devices are a lightweight but tough tool, made of metal and containing certain graphics. The sheer genius of these devices is that they can be folded down to a small size, making them easy for you, or for your promoters to carry, and when unfolded, they look like one solid structure. If you have already bought a pop-up and don’t want to print another one, you can reuse the one you already have, and we’ll print new graphics for you to use on the old frame, so your costs come down too.

How to Use Them

A pop-up can be used in just about any way you can think of and because they are so light and easy to fold, you can simply pack them up and get on a taxi, into a car, on a plane, a train or a boat with no trouble at all. This is why, when it comes to mall activations and expos, they are one of the best tools to give to promoters or sales people.

They literally pop up, making them easy to install and as with so many items we print, a pop-up has to look really good. This is why when we create a pop-up, we don’t just make sure it is structurally sound. We also check the graphics to ensure that they don’t look out of place, or have the bleed showing.

Mad About Printing of Pop-Ups

If you want to put your best foot forward in business, make sure that every piece of marketing collateral you use says, “Me and my business are awesome.”  We’ve got the same mentality you do. We want to impress you just as much as you want to impress your customers.
