Bannerstands - Displays 2 Go

Recycling Program for Pull-Up Banner Stands

Australia generates roughly 50 million tonnes of waste a year, and around 50-60% of this is recycled. One of the many environmentally-conscious activities we take here at Displays 2 Go is to run a pull-up banner stand recycling program.

The program is a simple concept that helps keep banner stands out of landfill around Australia. We simply re-purpose your old stand and fit a new banner – too easy!

How does recycling my old banner stand work?

We have made the whole process really easy for you:

  1. We are not precious about whether your banner stand originally came from us or not, so just send in your old stand and we can organise the rest.
  2. We will remove the old banner image.
  3. We will check and print the new artwork.
  4. We will fit the new banner to your original banner stand cassette and put it in a carry bag for you. Hey presto; you have a new impactful banner stand!

How much will it cost?

Why should I recycle my banner stand?

There are three main reasons why you should look at recycling your old banner stand:

  • Save Money – a large portion of the cost on any pull-up banner stand is the hardware, so by only replacing the printed part of the stand you are going to save money.
  • Reduce Landfill – in this throw-away society, it’s often too easy to “just buy a new one” but do you really need to? Make a contribution to the environment by helping reduce landfill!
  • New Message – if you’ve purchased a decent piece of banner stand hardware, the only thing that needs replacing on your banner stand is the actual banner image. You can do this time and again, with a brand new banner every time.

trestle-tables-size

What is the standard size of a trestle table?

Trestle tables (also sometimes known as folding tables ) are used for a multitude of purposes from events and exhibitions to everyday use in a community hall or school. Due to their fold-ability and ease of use, they are incredibly versatile and practical. One you start to spot them you’ll realise they are everywhere!

However, there does seem to be some confusion over the standard size of these trestle tables which can cause some frustration. The main reason for this confusion is because historically the trestle tables measurements were based on the imperial measurement system of feet and inches.  For example the most popular 1.8 metre table is what the Americans would call 6 feet.

Reference guide to trestle table sizes

Trestle tables come in two standard sizes

  • 1.8 metres wide
  • 2.4 metres wide

These can vary slightly between manufacturers, but very typical sizes for the tables are either around 1830mm wide x 760mm deep x 740mm high, or 2400mm wide x 760mm deep x 740mm high.  The most popular standard size is the 1.8m wide version.

Looking for a table cloth for your trestle table?

If you are looking to cover your trestle table you need to ensure you get the right sized table cover to fit the table. If you’re hiring or borrowing a table for a venue, make sure you check beforehand so there are no surprises. At Displays 2 Go we produce tablecloths in two standard sizes, making it easy to work out. We can also print table covers with your brand or key marketing message for any shows, sales or events you may have coming up. Take a look on our website for Printed Table Cover options.
