It is vital that you consider whether you are happy for the framework of the shell-scheme to be showing through or if you would prefer a seamless, more professional look. This will help determine your choice of materials. From rigid* to fabric we have a solution for every event. We can also provide a fully-managed event attendance service and also a complete Design and Installation Service; a one-stop shop for your event attendance.
When opting for the ‘visible’ option it is crucial to ensure the measurements you focus on are those relating to the ‘seen panel size’; this will be explained somewhere within your exhibitor pack. We always request a copy of these details so we know which shell-scheme you are working with in order to ensure all measurements are correct.
The two main rigid* products used in shell-scheme graphics are Foamex or Foamcore panels. These come in a variety of thicknesses from 1mm to 10mm; the ideal thicknesses are usually 3mm or 5mm for shell-schemes. We usually provide these with Velcro fixings to the rear of the boards for to enable attachment to the walls of your shell-scheme. Depending on how you are transporting these it may be best to have them supplied in two halves.
We also offer an Eco-friendly Graphic board solution; we have two products, Ultra-Board and Xanita Board (pronounced Zanita). These are both flutted-card based recycable products. The Ultra is ideal for one-time show useage, whereas the Xanita Board is much more durable, enabling multi-usage. The boards are avaliable in 10mm or 16mm widths – we recommend 10mm – and will be supplied with Velcro to the rear for fixing, unless an alternative is required.
Another solution are our wallpaper options. We offer a repositionable vinyl making it easy to apply and if necessary lift (if applied slightly adrift!). This is a one-time use product. We also offer a fabric/textile wallpaper with a low-tack adhesive so that your shell-scheme backboards don’t get damaged. This is re-usable, however it does need to be carefully placed back onto the release liner to enable re-use.
Another popular alternative are our laminated prints. These are simple poster prints laminated with a heat-seal for durability and supplied with either a 1mm foam tape or Velcro – to the rear – for fixing. They are excellent for multiple use and can adorn the office between events!
Seamless graphics are excellent if you don’t want to see the framework of the shell-scheme. The seamless effect is created by using shell-scheme clips, which fix onto the shell-scheme posts. it is vital to provide us with your Exhibitor Pack when using these graphics as there are numerous different shell-schemes used by different organisers, ther type of which will determine which clips are required. When opting for seamless graphics, the centre-to-centre measurements are vital to ensuring the panels fit.
We also offer a rollable Correx product which folds down into graphics tubes for ease of transportation. These can be used time and time again. With Velcro attached to the rear – to fix onto your clips – it is a simple solution for seamless graphics.
Rigid graphics can also be used to create a seamless effect. Foamex or Foamcore are a great solution for creating a backwall effect. When using these with clips they will need to be supplied as whole panels, so ideally you will need a van for transportation.
Fabric graphics are an excellent solution when creating a seamless look. Printed to display polyester material, we are able to stitch Velcro to the edges which is then attached to the clips to tension and create your stand. Being a fabric graphic makes it very easy to transport and re-use time and time again.
