The fabric collage style of trade show display isn't new. These displays have been available for a few years now, but were only offered from a few manufacturers so they haven't had widespread exposure until more recently. We held off offering them until we could find a reliable supplier with reasonable pricing for our customers, and now that we have, we're happy to finally make the Claim fabric pop up displays available.
This style of fabric pop up display never fails to get attention, thanks to it's unique look. Another big advantage they have is that the graphics stay attached to the frame when it's collapsed, so set up takes only seconds and makes this one of the easiest to set up of any trade show display. The downside to this style of display is that instead of a large, single graphic that covers the entire display, you have a collage of smaller graphics. This makes for a more challenging design since you have less overall space for your message, and it's broken up into various sizes of individual graphics. This can work very well for certain applications, but not so well for others, so it's important to think about how you would use the graphic space available in one of these kits before deciding to purchase one.
Early variations of this style of display had button holes sewn into the corners of the graphics that fit over hooks on the frame. That left those hooks visible which wasn't very attractive. The XClaim displays have a push-fit style connection in the corners of the graphics that fit into the hubs of the frame. A twist-on cap fits over the hubs and hides the graphic attachment for a clean look that doesn't detract from the overall presentation.
Available in a wide variety of sizes, from table top displays to full 10 foot wide trade show displays, the idea behind these displays is pretty simple. Take a pop up style display frame, and instead of covering the entire display with graphics, attach graphics within each quadrant of the frame. The most basic kits fill each quadrant with single graphic. For more visual interest, the graphic can be attached in some corners to the front of the frame, and in others to the back of the frame.
By making some of the graphics cover more than one quadrant of the frame, you get a larger focal point in the display that also makes for an interesting collage.
Adding different sizes and shapes of graphics to the back of the display, and layering different graphics on the front side of the frame, creates depth and allows for some interesting shapes to be formed. This can be strictly for visual appeal, or with some creative design, the areas of the back side graphics that are visible from the front graphics can also be used to convey information. Leaving some quadrants open, or partially open is also popular, but adding graphics to the back side so they can be seen where there are gaps in the front gives even more options.
Some kits even have different shaped graphics in the quadrants, and combine that with graphics that might occupy two to four quadrants. Shapes like triangles, stars or diamonds are eye catching, but also have less usable surface area so choose kits with these alternate shapes carefully.
There are even kits where the frame is turned 45 degrees to create a pyramid shape, for even more visual interest. These have a wider footprint than the standard kits, so keep that in mind when selecting a pyramid shaped display.
These shapes are so different from standard trade show displays, that customers can't help but notice them. For the truly adventurous and creative, it's possible to create your own kit with a la carte graphics. We don't offer this on the website, so you would need to contact us for options and pricing, but if none of the kits on our site are exactly what you're looking for, this option allows you to customize one to your liking.
Each XClaim fabric pop up display kit comes with the frame, the graphics and a travel bag. The pop up frame has magnetic arms that connect to hold the display in its expanded position, so it's extremely easy to set up and take down. Hard shipping cases are available as options, as are lights, with the exception of the pyramid kits. Because the lights attach to the hubs of the frame, and the frame is rotated 45 degrees with the pyramids, there isn't a place to attach the lights on the pyramid shapes, so lights aren't an option for those.
