Formulated displays are the new “it” factor when it comes to making a statement at Charlotte Tradeshows. These products come in a wide variety of structures ranging from tension fabric backwalls to 3D hanging displays. This month we will dive into the world of Portable Tradeshow Displays using fabric and polystyrene.
There is no better way to have people take notice of your company or organization than to present it to them in the form of an 8’ high display. The graphics can be pretty much anything you like; something as simple as a step and repeat of your logo for a red carpet event or live action photos representing your company’s services.
Displayed above is a Curved Fabric Hopup with endcaps that we made for Glenn Underwater Services of Charlotte, NC. The vibrant 8’x8’ curved display was a hit at their event. Most stands only require one person to set up and require no tools for assembly. Hopups also come with a wheeled carrying case for easy transport.
Fabric Hop Up: Curved and Straight
Our Fabric Hopups consist of Dye sublimated printed fabric with Velcro edges to attach to the tension frame. Dye sub printing fabric allows us to achieve richer and more vibrant colors. This material can be machine washed whereas latex printed fabric cannot. This is a plus when it comes to maintenance and cleaning. If latex printed fabrics were washed, some of the color would wash out along with the dirt. Another advantage of using Dye sub printed fabric is glare will not be an issue. Fabric Displays are perfect for events where there will be photography or filming taking place.
PolyStyrene Coyote: Curved and Straight
If you are looking for something more rigid, polystyrene may be the way to go. The coyote display consists of polystyrene panels with magnetic strips (or Velcro depending the model) on the back.
These panels are precision cut so that they line up against one another seamlessly. Polystyrene displays are more labor intensive than the fabric, but are more substantial. It is recommended that two people set these displays up because it involves precise alignment of the graphics top and bottom. When not in use, polystyrene panels should be stored flat and not rolled. Rolling would cause the material to maintain a slight curve and make it more difficult to install.
