Banner Bug retractable banner stands come from Australia and are lightweight but sturdy banner displays that have an excellent reputation for reliable, long-term use. There is no banner stand model on the market that comes in more sizes, or bigger sizes, than the Banner Bug, which is another reason they are so popular.
Also called roll up banner stands or pull up banner stands, this style of banner display has a spring tension roller that winds the banner into the base for storage between uses. This protects the banner and makes this style of display extremely easy to set up and transport. The Banner Bug uses super low profile velcro to attach the banner to the stand. The top rail uses a plastic strip with this velcro and includes a matching strip that sticks to the top edge of the banner. Once the plastic strip is stuck to the velcro on the banner, it's folded over and inserted into a channel in the top rail which holds the banner securely and prevents direct stress on the adhesive velcro. The bottom of the banner also gets a strip of adhesive velcro that attaches to a standard plastic leader with the other side of the velcro strip.
The Banner Bug is another model that claims to have a lifetime warranty, and I'm sure that's what the manufacturer had in mind, but in reality they do not. The U.S. distributor of the Banner Bug is supposed to be responsible for warranty repairs, but instead only covers the cost of replacement parts, if they determine the failed parts are a manufacturing defect. If you are able to repair the stand yourself, we can have any replacement parts shipped directly to you at no cost, but if the stand needs to be returned for repair, you would have to pay for shipping both ways. This is not a standard warranty in the industry, so we like to point out how it works so that our customers can make an informed decision. See the Warranties section in the Useful Info menu for more details.
