Frequently asked questions
What are fabric display stands?
Fabric display stands are a display system which consists of a printed graphic which slides over a lightweight frame. This type of display is incredibly visible and makes a huge promotional impact in a range of spaces, including trade shows, shopping centres and hotel lobbies.
They're ideal for grabbing your audience's attention and are a highly effective twist on more conventional exhibition stands.
What are the standard sizes of fabric display stands?
Frame options for fabric display stands are highly flexible. For example, we offer straight, curved, serpentine and desktop variations, plus custom frames on request. In addition, we can supply frames at 2m to meet the dimensions of most common exhibition spaces, extending to 4m+ for open space displays.
Our fabric banner stands measure 2.2m tall and start at 915mm wide. They're a seamless alternative to traditional roller banners and make a significant impact whether used alone or with other branded promotional materials.
How do you assemble a fabric display stand?
Fabric displays can be even more straightforward to assemble than traditional displays such as roller banners. Just slot the numbered poles together to create the lightweight aluminium frame, then pull the graphic over the frame and do up the zip to maintain tension.
There's no need for tools, and you won't have to spend time ensuring your graphics are correctly aligned so you can start making an impact in minutes.
We include handy assembly videos on many of our fabric display stands, just check the product information section if this is available.
How do you wash a fabric display stand?
To maintain your fabric display in the best condition, it's critically important to read and follow the washing instructions. Our fabric displays are easy to wash, iron and spot clean to keep them looking their best, but always follow the instructions that come with your specific stand.
If your fabric display is machine-washable, we recommend using a mild detergent on a delicate wash cycle. Never use bleach or other harsh chemicals, and remove the fabric from the machine straight after washing to minimise wrinkles. Then, attach it to the display stand to dry in the correct shape.
How to store your fabric display graphics and stands?
When it's time to store your display, these tips will help you keep your graphic in the best condition.
First, fold the fabric with the printed side on the inside to prevent dirt and stains. Next, ensure you fold each graphic loosely to avoid creases and then store them away from direct sunlight in a dry place.
Finally, we recommend you store your fabric displays in a room that does not experience extreme high or low temperatures to prevent mildew and mould and to keep them looking like new.
