The ABC and A-Z of rollerbanner uses

Communication occurs in three forms; verbal, nonverbal and visual. When it comes to advertising, contact with your consumer is almost entirely visual making use of images, colours, fonts and symbols and composing them in an attractive way. Roll up banners are highly visual and perceptibly powerful display stands that provide a blank canvass on which to convey messages, generate information and create brand awareness. Add to this versatility, easy set up and dismantling and cost effectiveness and it becomes easy to understand why this marketing tool has become so popular.

But are these roll up stands really a good investment for marketing purposes and how exactly can roller banners be used to communicate with your chosen audience?

Make your roller banner work for you

There are many ways to put your pull up displays to use. Select from the suggestions listed below:


Airport food and drink outlets use the banners to advertise special offers, discounts and promotions. Bureau de change kiosks, car hire and public transport booths draw attention to important currency and schedule information or short-term deals.

Activity associations, such as sports clubs, youth organisations and children’s groups, can make use of the roller banners to decorate the reception and exterior of the locations where they are held. They can also be used to advertise any upcoming events and fundraising efforts, as well as to highlight the association name and slogan.

Bus stations can use the outdoor roller banners as signage indicating to travellers where each service operates. Also, they draw attention to any offers for reduced price travel, such as season tickets and discount cards by placing the roller banners in a prominent place like the ticket office.

Bars and cafés like to advertise their special offers and discounts on the street or in the car parks. The smaller banners can be placed on the counter or bar top displaying the menu or drink promotion of the day.

Beauty Salons and spas make their customers aware of the many products on offer as well as any membership deals available. A selection of different sized roller banners in reception can not only add to the ambiance of the premises but advertise any special promotions or deals.

Car showrooms continually offer special finance deals on specific vehicle models. The bullet points of these arrangements can be clearly presented on large roller banners positioned at the doorways or in reception.

Exhibitions are held in special halls and function rooms, focused on specific themes, inviting the public to learn more about the subject matter and the commercial or non-commercial entities connected to it.
