We can tell you in great technical detail why one pop up display is better than another, explain why pop up stands are so popular with different clients, and provide a really long extensive list of where you can use them at different events and exhibitions… but maybe you are wondering what actually is a pop up display stand… and is it really that easy to use?
So, what is it?
Pop up stands are constructed of a concertina framework that pulls open (and can just as easily collapse down again). The frame then fixes together with magnetic bars and the graphics then easily attach with magnets.
Is it really quick to put up & take down?
Regardless of the size pop up stand you require, it really does only take minutes to set up, without any need for training, specialist stand contractors or tools. Naturally, the first time you do this it might take you a little longer but it really is as straightforward as it sounds.
How do the graphics attach?
Pop up displays are all slightly different, but all will have magnetic strips running down the frame; some you have to attach, some are integrated into the framework. Either way, it’s not complicated and is simple to ‘pop’ together.
The graphics will have magnets on the back so they just have to be attached to the frame once it’s all set up. This is the trickiest bit, but only until you get the hang of it – everyone finds the easiest way and it only takes seconds when you do!
Pop up stand sizes explained
It’s common for pop up stands to be referred to as ‘3×3’ or ‘3×4’ etc. This is actually referring to the amount of frame sections wide by frame sections high, and not metres as commonly (and rather confusingly) is thought.
It’s easy to link frames together to create displays to bespoke configurations.
Take a look at our technical specification on the pop up display pages for pre-determined sizes, but if you know the size of your floor space – we are happy to work out what would be the best sized solution for you.
Curved, straight or other?
For most pop up displays you can choose between a curved and a straight shaped frame. The choice really does come down to personal preference or which may look better in its required space.
Other shapes are available such as ‘S’ shapes, ‘L’ shapes or even bespoke.
If you choose a straight pop up stand, remember to ask your supplier if stiffener bars are included to help keep the graphics aligned and looking professional.
Can I make a curved pop up display straight?
No. The curved angle is fixed and cannot be changed.
Can all pop up displays be double sided?
Most can. All pop up displays excluding the ‘L’ shaped system can be double sided.
Can I have a different height?
All standard pop up stands are 2225mm tall, which are the usual height requirement. However, we can provide custom sized pop ups on request, please call us for more details.
Are the graphics seamless?
Yes! If required we can offer some helpful hints and guidelines when producing your artwork to ensure that you can maximise all opportunities for your display… but all graphics are seamless and look extremely professional – probably one of the reasons why so many clients love them!
All our graphics are printed in-house on the highest quality media with expert print and finish. We guarantee you will be pleased with the results.
Are printed graphics included in the price?
Yes! All our prices that are stated on our website or included within a written / verbal quote will include quality printed graphics (unless otherwise stated). We will sell the frame and graphic panels separately if required – please contact us and we will provide you with a quote.
We have created some ‘bundles’ which include trolley cases which double as a counter, counter graphic wraps and lights. There are many different options available so if you aren’t sure which is the best for you, browse our site which should give you detail on what’s included or give us a call for more information and advice.
How many times can I use it?
Pop up stands can be used again and again. They are extremely durable and it’s common to have a number of different graphics for one pop up display depending on your event or sales & marketing requirement. Reprints are reasonably priced too!
What is a ‘D’ end?
A ‘D’ end is the graphic that wraps around both ends of the pop up frame, creating a ‘D’ shape. When double sided, the artwork continues from the ‘D’ end onto the reverse of the frame and if single-sided the artwork finishes here but from the front gives a professional finish.
How would a pop up display be delivered to me?
Your pop up display will arrive ready-to-go, with the frame and quality graphics included in a hard trolley case.
How should I store my graphics?
After use, carefully lay the graphics flat on a clean surface / floor, and roll them with the print facing out. Graphics can then be stored in the hard trolley case.
How easy is it to add the lights?
The halogen lights are designed to complement a pop up stand perfectly and different styles are available. Click here to read more detail on the light specification.
LED lights are also available for certain systems as an option – please call us for more information.
To use the pop up light clip; attach the light to the clip, then attach the clip to one of the cross section bars of the frame – designed perfectly to fit to the specific framework the light will be held securely until you wish to take it down!
Where can I use my pop up display?
Pop up displays are perfect for trade shows, exhibitions, events, conferences, seminars, foyers, showrooms, offices and any indoor environment where you wish to showcase your brands marketing & sales messages.
Pop up display stands aren’t really suitable for outdoor use; however we have similar products which would work perfectly as an outdoor display, call us for more information.
