Ultima Displays has announced what it is calling a ‘revolutionary multifunctional roller banner’

One of the most popular items sign-makers sell to customers is the roller banner. This humble device allows anyone from an estate agent to a school holding an open day to herald their event. Ultima Displays has announced what they are calling a ‘revolutionary multifunctional roller banner with a patent-pending top rail design which gives exhibitors a two-in-one solution’. They say it is the first roller banner of its kind to incorporate a multifunctional top rail which allows the option of either a self-adhesive or snap rail, it provides the flexibility of two top-rail solutions in one unit saving space.

Ultima also has a new ‘Vision’ banner range, which is noted as being a modern, sleek and elegantly designed range of display solutions. It is made from recycled plastic and high precision moulded polymers with a high shine white gloss, giving it a smart look. The firm says the range suits all budgets from the low-cost Element to the premium and curvaceous Revolution banner.

Away from banners, Antalis has given details of a product offer of Stadur lightweight foam boards and finishing accessories

Away from banners, Antalis has given details of a product offer of Stadur lightweight foam boards and finishing accessories. Available in a range of specifications and sizes suitable for interior and exterior applications, the launch follows the Stadur Easyprint range released last year. Made from Stadurlon, compact sheets on both sides, allowing it to be bent or folded without breaking, it is ideal for three-dimensional signage and displays. Milling V-shaped grooves enable the foam board to be foldable by hand, while slot grooves allow various geometrical and cylindrical shapes to be generated, giving free reign when it comes to creative design options.

In addition to an extensive range of films from the T-FAST line, APA has been promoting the new T-SOFT (extra-soft cutting film, which can be instantly transferred to the fabric). Plus, their T-SHIRTFILM range is enriched by the new T-GLITTER (glitter effect in various colours), T-LUMIX (photo-luminescent film), T-METAL (reflective metallic effect in several colours), T-FLOCK (flocked film with high fibre density) and T-WAY (extra-soft film for decorating nylon and waterproof fabrics).
