Pop Up Stands have been around for years and they’ll be around for many more. The reason Pop Up Stands are so popular is because they can be used by anyone, regardless of experience and result in a professional display.
When shopping for your exhibition stand you need to make sure you get the right shape and fit for the available space. That is why we have put together the buyers guide for the Pop Up Stand.
Pop Up Stand Sizing
One of the main things that catches people out is the sizing. Pop Up Displays use a unusual measuring system so it’s important to check the footprint size of the stand to make sure it’ll fit the space.
Pop Up Stands will be listed in the following sizes, 3×3, 3×2 etc. The confusion comes from thinking this is 3m x 3m or 3m x 2m, but in actual fact the measurement refers to a cube system. 3×3 refers to 3 cubes high x 3 cube wide, with dimensions changing slightly per manufacturer.
Understand the end panels
The end panels of a Pop Up Stand are called ‘D End Panels’. The name comes from the panel creating a D shape on the end of the stand when assembled.
Part of the panel wraps around the back of the stand, and this should be taken into consideration when creating the artwork. The other parts of the panel can be seen from a side view and the final portion being visible from the front.
The carry case is not only useful to transport and store the stand but can be part of the overall stand design. An upgrade kit includes a printed graphic wrap and acrylic top which are compatible with the carry cases. Once these elements have been added, the carry case can be used as an exhibition counter.
Single & Double Sided Print
The single and double sided print options provide 2 different types of print and work great for different stand types.
Single sided print keeps panels on the side and the front only, leaving the back of the stand open and the frame work exposed. Frequently used against a wall or in a position where the back of the stand can’t be seen or accessed.
Double sided print covers both sides of the stand where you won’t be able to see the inner frame of the Pop Up Stand. Used in a fully open space where all sides of the stand can be seen.
