One man with a dream of providing premium flags and banners in New Zealand started banerect in 1995 from a small garage in Lower Hutt. Banerect founder and managing director Tony McKendry actually invented one of the very first bannerstands in the world back in the early 1990s. In 1994 he left his role as general manager of a metropolitan Toyota dealership to further develop the flag and banner range and move into the highly specialised world of fabric printing.

Banerect Portable Displays is your first choice for pull up banners and high-quality flags, both feather and teardrop shape flags and also large promotional fabric banners. Whether you are in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Christchurch or even the smallest town we can help promote your business or sports event in the most professional and high impact manner.

Banerect offer clients a range of services including:
Flags – Design and manufacturer of lightweight, easily assembled flags which can be delivered throughout the country
Bannerstands – Design and production of 'Pull Up' bannerstands NZ wide.
Large format print – For use in retail and trade shows and sporting events, large scale banner printing is easy with Banerect on your side.


Below are just a few of literally hundreds of happy customer emails to us.

Thanks Tony, you have continually provided us with exceptional service and a quality of print that is unsurpassed from our experience. You have helped us to achieve simply stunning results. Your team has met extremely tight deadlines and you have repeatedly gone above and beyond to successfully execute our complex printing needs. This is the true distinction of your service, and has enabled us to achieve an incomparable graphic quality of print for a variety of applications within our work.
Richard Taylor - Weta Workshop

Brilliant experience! A client approached us to create a couple of banners for an event that was happening in 4 days time. I called around to 10 different suppliers and only Tony from banerect was able to turn around the production of the banners in time. Every other supplier required 5-10 working days. They worked overtime to get our banners produced in a matter of 2 days. Thank you very much, we greatly appreciate the efforts you went to in order to get our needs sorted.
Eparama - Virtual TAG

Thank you for your reply.  Believe me, I really appreciate that you are a Kiwi company! After trying to extract information from (online competitor) which was meant to be company - numerous e-mails not being answered, I rang, and got someone, somewhere who I COULD NOT UNDERSTAND and COULD NOT UNDERSTAND ME!!!! And, your prices are cheaper than theirs and I know will be much better quality. So I'm very happy.

From day one right up until our banners were delivered to us you’ve provided us with a first class service. You took the time to listen to what we needed and provided us with a variety of options. Your level of knowledge and expertise is second to none. Every question we had was answered and then expanded upon to include helpful tips and information about making the best possible
banner for our business. I cannot recommend Banerect enough, without doubt the best banner specialists I have worked with and you provide a service that is second to none.
William - Biozone International

In the two months since putting the new flag up we have experienced an incredible increase of 600% in the number of people walking in off the street as a direct result of seeing the flag. Also, the support you’ve given us has been really great. The small investment in the flag and base has been a very cost effective method of advertising and I will have no hesitation in recommending
banerect to anyone wanting to advertise their business.
Carolyn - Vibex

I’ve just returned home from a 73 day marketing trip across the US. The Waveline banners worked out just fine, as expected of course, and we received many comments, and with the same questions always asked, like: Where did you get that banner from? How light is it? Where did you get it printed?” Thanks so much!
Stu - ASJ Trophy Hunting

The new flags looked fantastic! They really added to the festive atmosphere and were so eye-catching that it made it easy to spot the arts venues. We have had plenty of good feedback about them. I really appreciate your great can-do attitude, and turning around our order in such a short time with such a high quality output.
Catherine - Kapiti Coast District Council

Many thanks for the wonderful printed bannerstands that we received this morning. Everyone was very impressed, they are so practical and easy to assemble, just what we wanted, and the colours are amazing. Many thanks, you will be receiving more orders from us!
Melanie - Cancer Society

My apologies for the delay in letting you know we had received the banners.  All very exciting with very positive comments. We have the pull up one at the top of the stairs as you go into reception and we have put the bean banner up down the hallway by the boardroom, so all can see what they look like.  The bean banner will be off to the rugby on Sunday by our tent – so good publicity for us. Thank you so much, really appreciate your help.
Lynley - WK Accountants

I was absolutely blown away by the quality of the pull-up banners and the Waveline. And your service was super prompt. In fact, artwork for your items was dispatched last but your items arrived first. Even sooner than the other company (who are just a few doors down from us) who were providing some branded display tables. Fantastic job, thanks again.
Phil - Define Instrument

You guys were really helpful on the phone and sounded like you knew what you were talking about and we able to tell me what I needed to know. Other companies I spoke with seemed to offer more barriers than solutions to my situation at the time so it made sense to go with your company as it all seemed very straight forward.  Appreciate the help and looking forward to seeing the banners.
Tahnee - Intueri Education Group

Wow... a supplier that says YES and actually delivers!!! Tony went over and above to make our extremely last minute branding opportunity a reality. I felt so sorry for even asking him to attempt to meet such a challenging deadline, but never once did Tony make me feel like my business wasn't appreciated. He just said YES and took care of the HOW. What a legend!!!! Looking forward to sending more business your way soon.
Brendan - SeeChange Distribution

We were planning for to attend a conference. Tony and the team at Banerect were so helpful, and fast. We had a limited budget for this conference, and we got exactly what we wanted. There was a short window within which to print in Wellington and setup in Auckland after the design was finalised, but these guys worked feverishly and delivered our banner on time - early in fact!. We're thrilled with the quality and service provided. Great job guys, and thanks again.
Derrick - Sush Mobile

I cant recommend Tony enough. Usually when you hear the words fast turn around you automatically think cheap. But the quality of the promotional products that they supplied us with, are streaks ahead of the competition and have an extremely fast turn around! Can't wait to do business again
Jordan - Link Church

Was so impressed with the efficiency of Tony and his team. The final products look so amazing we have even had people comment on our banners asking where we got them from. Would only use Banerect in future and would recommend them to everyone.
Brittany - External Reporting Board

New Zealand Rugby has been using Banerect to provide media backdrops for our national teams. The quality has always been excellent and we have been impressed with the speed of delivery when deadlines have been tight. Thanks for all the help.
Mike - NZ Rugby (All Blacks/Sevens/Super Rugby teams)

Exemplary service and excellent product. I was impressed by the highly professional yet very friendly service at every step of the way. I not only would highly recommend this company to anyone, but would also suggest that competitors could learn a thing or two from this company. Tony was easy to access for communication and our queries were always promptly answered. The product was delivered on time and our feather flags not only look superb but it is evident that the hardware and textiles used are of a high quality. Way to go Banerect.
Ron - Auckland Community Zero Waste Alliance

Tony was very helpful and the service was awesome. The product was just what we wanted and swiftly delivered once ordered. I really appreciated the follow up e-mail to ensure our needs were meet and all questions answered.
Debs - Farmers

You guys are brilliant, so efficient both replying to my emails and also sending the banners I needed with such short notice. I would definitely recommend him and am so pleased with his service. He went above and beyond. Thanks Tony! You're wonderful!
Anneka - Fullers Ferries

Thanks for the banners that were supplied to us last week. I really appreciate the time and effort that you provided us with and the turnaround time was exceptional. I have attached a photo from the golf course. Thanks again, and I am sure there will be another order coming your way soon!
Patrick - KOA

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you did for us at such short notice. Our banner is absolutely stunning! Your print & production quality are superb, your hanging system worked perfectly, and all delivered on time and with a smile. Our banner received numerous compliments at the show - looking forward to working with you again.
Jennifer - Wishbone Design Studio

I found Tony and the team fantastic to deal with. We were kept up to date with how our order was progressing and the product was delivered on time and our flags were quality and looked better then we expected. I will definitely use them again and would recommend them to anyone!
Daryl - Instant Baches

Just updated our banners after a logo change. The team were outstanding. Not only did they turn around our order in 4 working days but spent time making sure our Logo was up to the required standard to ensure a great reproduction - most impressed and recommend them to anyone needing this service
Alan - SB Promotions

There are literally hundreds more thank you notes like the above!
