Thinking of buying a roll up banner? here’s a few things to consider

Roll Up Banners are still very popular with businesses, and have been put to the test in this digital era but guess what? they have increased popularity! why? well you can pop up banners in many locations without the need of any fixtures or fittings, which makes this extremely easy to set-up. Whether your hosting an in or outdoor event, an exhibition, a conference or trade show, or simply displaying a message within your business or commercial establishment these are perfect.

Now, before ordering your rollup banner there are a few things that you may want to consider, like the size of the banner, colour, and in our opinion one of the most important factors is the font and the font size.


I guess the size of your roller banner will depend on where and how often it will be used, for example, if your banner and message needs to be viewed from a great distance then an XL Large option would be more suited, however if you’re limited with the space the a standard size would be more suitable. Standard sizes available are:

  • 80cm x 200cm
  • 85cm x 200cm 
  • 100cm x 200cm
  • 120cm x 200cm

If your after a Press Board that needs to be free standing then our a Super Wide Roller Banner  is perfect and comes in various sizes: 150cm, 200cm, 240cm, 290cm or 300cm wide by 200cm height.


We’ve seen so many roller banner designs, some that are fantastic and others that can do with some tweaks, having the option of printing the banner in full colour doesn’t mean you need to include all the colours in the rainbow. Be selective, choose colours that work well, if your using a dark background colour then consider a lighter colour to display the information so that it stands out and is clear to read. Try and create a theme that works well with your brand and company logo, [Quick Tip] research suitable colours that are commonly used in your business sector as association and familiarity of your product or services can really help a user make a decision about your products and services.

However, there is no limitation you can opt for bright or muted colours depending on your businesses products or services.

[Quick Tip 2] Have you ever used a Pixel Picker? this is a great tool that allows you to find and pick colours from images or sample designs that you found and like on-line. Why not try and implementing these colours into your design to see if you can achieve a similar effect.


Fonts can really make a big difference to your design, but with such a large selection, which one is right for you? Well, we have recently started to recommend Google fonts as a starting point as they have a great selection that (in our opinion) work really well together, but more importantly as these are widely used online we have found that there is an increase in user interaction with physical designs that have used these font sets due to familiarity users experience online, give it a try and see what you think!

How many fonts should I be using? We recommend the one, or at a push two! and they should work well together.

What size should I make the font? We always recommend designing the banner to scale as this will give you a better indication of how the font will appear, view at 100% to see if the font is a suitable size and then decide if you want to make the font bigger or smaller. Please keep in mind that scripted fonts can often be difficult to read so try and keep these as large as possible, whilst keeping in-line with your design.

We hope the above has been helpful, but if you have any questions about roller banners please do reach out to us as we are always happy to help.
