The 12 bestselling displays of 2020

OK, so the festive season isn’t quite here yet which means we can’t start counting the 12 days, but as we approach the end of a very challenging year, we can reflect on the products that have been our mainstay throughout 2020 – and most years if we’re honest!

You won’t find any French hens or partridges in a pear tree here – just honest, high-quality displays that are adaptable and long lasting, and that our customers reach for again and again.  Let’s take a look at the 12 products we, and no busy print house, could be without…

  1. The LONDON Indoor Retractable Banner

We love the London for its no-nonsense appeal.  It’s an economy retractable banner stand, generally used for short-term applications in retail, fast-food, restaurants and more. The low-cost means the London is generally a single-use banner but it’s also a great option for small businesses on a tight budget, and doesn’t compromise on performance.  It features two-twist out feet for added stability, a clamp top bar, and even comes with a carry bag.

  1. The PORTO Tension Banner

When you need a no-frills display solution, the Porto fits the bill perfectly!  This indoor tension banner is designed on a classic x-frame for fast assembly, with the graphic mounted on grommets and rubber non-slip feet for stability.  The stand is extremely lightweight and simple, with a reputation as the best option for customers looking for a cheap banner stand. Since it’s so inexpensive, Porto is ideal for large promotions where stands and banners need to be presented in many locations at the same time. Product launches in showrooms or retail store displays are among the popular uses for the Porto!

  1. The GENEVA Retractable

In many sectors, a cheap banner stand just won’t cut the mustard and when you need a touch of luxury, the Geneva delivers in abundance.  This premium indoor retractable banner stand, with its silver finish chrome-effect end caps, boasts a standard tape leader and high-quality parts that give a deluxe aesthetic and a heavyweight feel.  The stand is highly durable and ideal for busy locations where a premium display is required, such as high-end boutiques, real estate, lawyers’ offices, and university campuses.

  1. The SwiftScreen SOLO

The Swiftscreen SOLO has been a real hero product for 2020 and a brand new addition to our portfolio.  This indoor privacy and infection divider boasts a powder-coated steel frame with a clear screen panel and is mounted on a low profile base with castors for ease of use.  It can be used to create physical distancing and infection control separations in a wide range of environments, including offices, classrooms and healthcare facilities.

  1. The TORONTO Snap Frame

Snap frames are one of those unsung heroes of display – they may not be a showstopper, but they’re a real workhorse of any corporate, commercial or retail environment.  The Toronto is a classic example – the 8×11 size is our most popular option and boasts a smart aluminum frame that simply snaps open, allowing you to replace the poster inside in a matter of seconds.  Toronto is supplied with a clear poster cover and a wall fixing kit, and is ideal for use in many indoor locations including office spaces, salons, classrooms, restaurants and more.

  1. The REGINA Desktop Retractable

They say small is beautiful, and that’s definitely the case with Regina!  With all the features of a premium retractable banner in a convenient tabletop size, it’s made from strong yet lightweight aluminum with a silver finish, shiny chrome end caps, an adhesive top bar and an 11×17-inch profile – ideal for displaying hand hygiene reminders, office notices and much more.

  1. The BRADFORD Information Stand

The terms ‘heavy duty’ and ‘stylish’ don’t always go hand in hand, but with the Bradford Information Stand you truly get both.  Made right here in Canada, this striking display is made from powder coated steel with a sleek, black profile and accepts up to 6mm foam core board or any other rigid media.  Graphics simply slide in the top for ease of use, and the display can be used indoors or out.   It’s ideal for entry ways, lobbies, waiting areas, sidewalks or campus grounds.

  1. The MARSHALL hand sanitizer stand (1gal)

Another new addition to our portfolio in 2020, the Marshall was developed in direct response to a public health emergency and is already helping businesses across the country to stay on top of hand hygiene.   With a steel base and post for stability, the 1-gallon version has a strong shelf for supporting a large bottle of hand sanitizer and is ideal for use in high-traffic settings or industrial locations.  The whole thing is topped with a useful snap frame display, so you can visually remind people to sanitize their hands.  It’s made in Canada, and has a smart silver finish.

  1. The original SWIFTSCREEN

Larger than its little brother, the SOLO, Swiftscreen is a high-quality infection control and privacy divider designed primarily for clinical use.  It features a powder-coated steel frame for robust, hygienic performance, and smooth surfaces for easy cleaning.  Swiftscreen provides clinical staff with a vital tool for dividing wards, isolating individual patients and creating private spaces within busy departments. It’s manufactured in Canada too.


Another product that blends into the background, quietly helping your clients’ messaging to stand out, our aluminum sign standoffs have a satin chrome finish and give rigid signs a classy appearance while creating a 3D effect by holding them away from the wall.  They’re used in a wide variety of settings such as offices, retail, health care centers, and more, for a simple yet effective way to bring branding to life!

  1. The SEATTLE Sidewalk Display

We’re big believers in making the most of the outdoor space available to your business and the Seattle allows any company to do exactly that.  This heavy-duty display has a fillable base with a handle and wheels for ease of relocation and a double-sided snap frame display, mounted on sturdy springs to help it withstand high winds or minor impacts.  It’s ideal for even the most rugged outdoor locations including gas station forecourts, outdoor pursuits centres and of course, bustling city sidewalks too.

  1. The BARCELONA Outdoor Retractable Banner

Sometimes you need to make a big visual impact outdoors, with a temporary display – and when you do, Barcelona is an ideal choice.  This outdoor retractable banner has all the same features as a standard-pop-up display, except that it also boasts a fillable base on wheels!  Barcelona is ideal for use in busy spaces where it may be necessary to display safety or other short-term messaging outdoors, in an eye-catching format.  It’s also perfect for outdoor events such as agricultural and machinery shows, or sporting events.
