5 Reasons Why Businesses Are Buying Fabric Displays

As we prepare to launch back into the world of events and exhibitions in the post-pandemic climate, it’s important to remember that things have changed a bit in the year-and-a-half that we’ve all been living under various restrictions. The set-ups which worked perfectly for your business at events and exhibitions before the pandemic may no longer offer the best functionality moving forward. Fabric displays have always been a popular choice for exhibitors in particular for a variety of reasons but this year their popularity has spiked even more. So, if you’re considering replacing your current products with fabric displays, or even just adding a fabric display to your stand set-up, read on to discover 5 reasons why many businesses like yours are buying fabric displays.

1. Practicality

Fabric displays are manufactured from a strong yet lightweight 30mm tubular aluminium frame that’s then covered with a one-piece stretch fabric sock that slides over the frame and then zips up to form your display stand. Thanks to their simple design, you don’t need any tools to assemble them; simply click the frame pieces together and cover with the printed fabric envelope. The result? A seamless, tensioned display stand that’s incredibly easy to set-up and disassemble, and is lightweight enough to be moved around when fully assembled if you require.

Choosing a fabric display stand is a practical choice, as you don’t need a team of people to set up your display and you can move it around to wherever you need it most on any given day. In addition, the 100% polyester fabric is machine washable and recyclable, for a greener alternative to other stands.


2. Flexibility

The beauty of fabric display stands is that they can be used for almost any application you can think of. From branded back walls to banner stands, promotional counters to hanging displays; fabric displays offer true flexibility for your event or exhibition stand. Easy to set up, fabric displays can be as simple or as complicated in layout as you wish; plus you can add detailed finishing touches with accessories such as lightboxes, iPad stands or sanitising stations to create the feel of a larger-scale set-up.

Fabric displays can be used for a wide range of events such as presentations, awards, trade shows, office and reception displays, showroom backdrops, exhibitions, conferences. This year, we have even seen them used as Zoom and video call backdrops. 


3. Longevity

Every aspect of fabric display construction is designed to be exceptionally durable and long-lasting; from the sturdy frame all the way down to the sublimated printed graphics. By overlocking and hemming the fabric graphic envelope, you can guarantee your display won’t split as you apply it. The fabric socks are even machine washable and can be folded without creasing; meaning you can use them time after time without risk of cracking, peeling or fading.

The durability of fabric displays make them the ideal choice for regular exhibitors with permanent branding or messaging. These lightweight event and exhibition stands are easily portable and will keep your promotional messaging in the public eye for as long as you need them to.

4. Quality

The materials we use to craft our fabric display stands are always of the highest quality. Thanks to our state-of-the-art manufacturing hub in Peterborough, all of our products are made and printed in the UK to the most exacting standards. 

Take the 100% polyester ‘socks’ which adorn the fabric display stand frames, for example. These are printed in-house by our team of experts using a dye-sublimation technique. This uses a combination of extreme heat and pressure to fuse ink directly into the fibres of the stretch display polyester fabric; an intense process resulting in high definition, sharp and vivid artwork that is of a photo-quality finish.

As a result, our fabric display stands are a durable and long-lasting alternative to more complicated exhibition set-ups.


5. Affordability

The simple design of fabric display stands makes them one of the most affordable options for event and exhibition promotional displays. Starting from £139, you can order a bespoke printed fabric display graphic stand that will truly get your business noticed. For larger displays, fabric stands are modular and can be combined with other options to form your ideal set-up. In addition, you can order replacement graphic fabric socks if you want to switch up your display content without entirely replacing the stand. To learn more about how you can design a personalised display and get the most from your outlay, please reach out to our team who will be delighted to help.

There’s no reason to move into this new era of events and exhibitions with trepidation. The pandemic may have fundamentally changed a lot of things, particularly rules and regulations about how visitors can interact with your stand; but that doesn’t mean you have to shell out a fortune to create a bright, eye-catching new display that will work for you, whatever the circumstances.
