How Are Modulate™ Display Stands Made?

Modulate™ displays have a 30mm aluminium frame which is made in the UK.

The tubular frame is split into multiple sections which are secured together with an elastic bungee cord to help aid assembly.

The twist and lock steel stabilising feet are also made in the UK for maximum quality control.

We print the fabric graphics ourselves in-house using a two-phase dye-sublimation printing technique.

We use dye-sublimation as it produces photo-quality artwork that is extremely hardwearing and durable.

Dye-sublimation printing is done in two stages. The first stage entails using large format printers to print artwork in reverse onto 85gsm transfer paper. This is done using a water-based sublimation ink. The large format printers are profiled to Fogra 39 global standard to ensure a high level of detail and vividness.

The second phase is done by lining up the printed transfer paper and stretch display polyester. They are then fed into the Monti Antonio sublimation calendar where 200ᵒ heat and pressure from the rollers fuses the ink into the fabric.

When printing is complete, the fabric is then hand cut to size.

The two-pieces of fabric are then stitched together and overlocked in reverse using a polyester and cotton mix thread. The reverse overlocking guarantees ultra-strong seams which are invisible when stretched over the frame.

Finally, the zip at the bottom of each display is sewn in using a single lock stitch with clear monofilament thread that blends into the rest of the display.

Modulate™ Display Stand Design

Unlike traditional vinyl displays, Modulate™ fabric stands don’t have ‘D’ ends at the edges. This means none of your artwork is unintentionally lost round the back of the display.

1. SIZE

Modulate™ displays come in two heights and the straight panels come in three widths. It’s essential that you tailor your artwork to the size of your stand to avoid messy overcrowding or blank, dead space. Modulate™ displays come with double-sided print as standard; giving you ample room to promote your brand on both sides of your exhibition stand.

2. COLOUR

Dye sublimation printing produces high definition, ultra-vivid colour. This means that whatever colour you choose will be printed true to form. This is particularly useful for matching your display to your company branding in order to maintain an immediate branded presence.

3. TEXT

Like with all display stands, lots of text is never recommended. Keep it simple with your business name, logo, website address, telephone number and social media handles.

4. IMAGERY

As long as your photographs and images are high resolution and high quality, your Modulate™ fabric display will reflect this. Bear in mind that your images need to be able to be blown up to size without looking pixelated.
