What’s Hot In Installation & Displays
There are a number of trends in the installation arena. The hot trends vary by installation and graphics/display type. Here are some things to look for.
Fabric-based graphics are not new, but are increasing in prevalence, especially as the number of dye-sublimation, latex and other fabric printing technologies proliferate. Textile-based display graphics are lightweight compared to rigid materials, are easy to ship, can be easily reused and are considered more environmentally friendly than vinyls.
Silicone-edge graphics (SEG) are seeing strong growth. With SEG, a graphic is printed on fabric, then a thin, silicone strip is sewn around the edge. This strip fits into a thin aluminium frame, and when the graphic is pulled tight, it can closely resemble rigid graphics. LEDs or other lights can be added to create backlit displays. SEG kits include frames in standard sizes, and graphics can be swapped out.
