How to hit your target, better yet, hit the bull's-eye with your Banner-Mate II Banner Stand system!

Aim for the clean and clear message ... If you have been actively doing display research you already know that there are many varieties of displays to choose from. We will end your tradeshow display challenge by making sure you are aiming for the new fresh approach, the connected banner stands.

Aim for adapting and expanding ... How would you like to cover the same "real estate" as a full size pop up display at your next tradeshow and for a lot less? The Banner-Mate II™ will accomplish both! Pay less than a 10' full size pop up display and you could have yourself (3) separate units that form an 86" high x 105" wide straight mural backwall that is virtually seamless. Unlike ordinary display systems, the standard 35" Banner-Mate II™ units can be linked together using the unique state-of-the-art edge to edge magnetic that will tightly hook the (3) units together. Design your graphics so that each individual unit may be used independently as well as connected, making the Banner-Mate II™ even more of a great marketing resource. This allows you the option of using only one unit and banner for the smaller applications. Get ready to throw the winning Game Shot for your company!

Another tremendous advantage is the clean edge to edge look. With no visible bases or feet exposed, only your top to floor graphics with be focused on. Keep your booth space functional with the 14.5" deep footprint leaving more space for you to move around - a perfect choice where space is limited. The solid Chrome weighted base will ensure the stability and support needed. Don't fuss with a telescoping pole, the included 3-section corded Graphic pole requires no adjusting to the right height needed so you easily achieve the right height every time. Supply us with your full color graphics and we will print them on our high quality Lexan banner material. With a photo finish your artwork will represent you!

FYI Printing Process: Banner material is a Lexan (plastic) laminated. Front laminate has a matte satin textured finish to help reduce indoor glare. If your artwork is high photo quality this material will provide a photo output. Printer model used is a 60 HP Designjet 5500ps. Note: This material is intended for indoor use only.

Our Banner-Mate II banner stand trade show display system beats the same 'ol pop up display by a mile.

"The 5 panel display looks fantastic. It was on display in a tradeshow yesterday in Bangor and everyone loved it. It was a huge hit. There were a lot of inquiries (Bangor Savings Bank) as to who made it for us and we let everyone know it was Affordable Display. Myself as well as others here are very happy with the work Affordable has provided us."

Trade Show in these harder times, why?

This little pig went to the market
This little pig stayed home
This little pig had roast beef
This little pig had none and....
This little pig cried 'YES YES YES' all the way to the bank

This week has been pretty rough on us Americans, well, really the whole world. All anyone can talk about is this Bailout or Buyout or whatever you want to call it, the Dow is down, losing jobs, the housing market, the almighty dollar, etc. All negative things are being reported. And rightly so, it affects all of us the large and the small.

BUT... this post is to say - hold on here - the doom and gloom is really bad but we're still here aren't we. Let's not give up! We're not ready to throw in the towel or cut our loses. We're here for the long haul through the good and the bad.

Well, Americans might be down but we're not out and you aren't either. Keep getting out there, keep meeting new people, keep spreading the word about you and what you do, be seen by the old and new. That's what a trade show is all about. It's the place to smile and be proud of the company you stand for. Trade shows are a fundamental avenue for any business to prosper.

And you know what we think is great about being in the Trade Show industry? Everything!!! It's in these times our services and ability to serve our customers is the most important. It's in these times that effective marketing makes the difference. It's in these times that we become creative and are willing to try new things. It's in these times that we work harder to win.

If nothing else, this post is to give you positive reinforcement that we all can do it and keep doing it no matter how rough it gets. Let's all weather the storm together! Don't stop trade showing, don't stop presenting your business, don't give up.

Muhammad Ali says it best, "Only a man who knows what it is like to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even."
