How Pop Up Stands are Made

Pop up exhibition stands are the most common type of exhibition stand.

They are lightweight, highly portable, easy to assemble and complete with a lifetime hardware warranty and a host of accessories – including pop up LED lights at no extra cost.

Available in any size or shape configuration, pop up stands can be adapted to suit any brand and event.

Where extra exposure is needed, we offer double-sided pop up exhibition stands

For brands with a larger exhibition space, linked pop up display stands are the go-to option because of their enhanced size and reconfigurable design. This is a major benefit of linked pop up stands because it allows you to add to and adapt your exhibition stand when needed.

Here at XL Displays, we are the UK’s largest supplier of pop up stands and we produce hundreds each month. The growing demand for this core display product means we have perfected the craft of making high-quality pop up exhibition stands in a time-efficient manner.

XL Displays Sales Team Undergo Weekly Training Session

It all starts with the sales team. They advise clients on what option is best for them according to specific needs. We train our sales team regularly so that they are up to date with the most recent knowledge on every product.

When an order is placed, the customer is then transferred to our graphics team.

We offer a comprehensive graphic design service where we will liaise with you every step of the way to create a stand that perfectly matches your needs.

When this is complete and signed off by the customer, the design then goes through to our printing department.

We print the graphic panels in-house and check them as they come off the printer to make sure the artwork is crisp, vibrant and free of any printing errors. 

We Print & Manufacture Each Pop Up Stand In House

When this is done, the graphic panels then go through to our production team.

First of all, the production team laminate the panels using a crystal matte laminate to ensure they are hardwearing and durable. When the graphics are laminated, they won’t crack, peel or tear; helping to increase the life-span of the pop up display.

After lamination is complete, the graphics are cut to size and magnetic tape is added so that the graphic panels can be securely attached to the headers and kickers of the frame. 

When the panels are ready, we test-build and quality check each pop up stand to ensure that the finished product is perfect before the customer receives it. 

When our production manager has inspected the pop up stand panel by panel and is happy with it, he signs it off.

The exhibition stand is then safely packed away and sealed ready for delivery. We wrap each panel in bubble wrap so that they are protected during transportation, and the pop up frame is packed in a padded carry bag.

Each panel is then placed in order of assembly inside the Zeus2 case and the frame is packed in another section to avoid damage.

If a customer requests it, we offer a demo service where a member of the team will be more than happy to demonstrate how to assemble the pop up exhibition stand.

We allow 48-72 hours for this entire process, but we also offer an express service in which we can manufacture a pop up stand and get it sent out within 24 hours if necessary.
