There are more than 10 uses for retractable banners, many more. However, these 10 uses for retractable banners top our list.

A friend called the day before Independence Day. She’s hosting a marketing event and asked about retractable banners, “Digital Toolbox is a half-day conference of speakers, panels, and networking conversations for business owners and marketing practitioners.” — Digital Toolbox Conference. She inquired about graphics for her event, and the first thing she mentioned was retractable banners. Makes sense, doesn’t it? Here are 10 uses for retractable banners you may not have considered.

10 Uses for Retractable Banners

Retractable Banners are Adaptable

There are more like 100 uses for retractable banners that I could list in the post, but that would be overkill. So, I’m going to stick with my top ten, but keep in mind any event that people are invited to attend can be enhanced with retractables.

Trade Shows

It’s hard to imagine a trade show booth without retractable banners. But not only booths, a trade show without retractables used for wayfinding, information sharing, and announcements is a show that is missing something.

Job Fairs

Our HR department attends and often set up a table at job fairs. A retractable banner highlighting the TKO Graphix company story as well as opportunities always travels with them.

Open Houses

Since I’ve been with TKO Graphix, we’ve held two open houses and several other events including hosting Vice President Pence on a roundtable with small business owners. We strategically placed banners at each of these events.


The last conference I spoke at was the Dayton WordCamp but think back to the most recent conference you attended. How many retractable banners do you recall? One, two, five, a dozen?

Local Fairs

If you’re trying to connect with a local community, why not set up at a local fair? Bring a table, chair, brochures, and a retractable banner or two, and you’re open for business.


As some of you may know I’m a member of a weekend rock and roll band, Under the Radar, (shhh don’t tell anyone we’re keeping it a secret). Guess what we use to share our name at performances?


Retractable banners used at church events are outstanding because they can be reused time and time again.


This year TKO Graphix has sponsored several charitable events including more than one golf outing as an associate sponsor, and of course, we’ve donated a few retractable banners.

Product Introductions

What better way to share information at a product launch than with a retractable banner.

Retractable Banners Rock!  

As I said earlier, the uses for retractable banners are almost unlimited. Anytime you want to promote your business, product, or an event, retractable banners add to the marketing campaign. They’re easy to use, convenient to transport, and can be used more than once. If you’d like to learn more about retractable banners, Contact Us.
