Template Temptations

Congratulations! You just purchased our super cool newly redesigned toolless Tahoe Twistlock Rack Graphic Package that is now yours to brand yourself. With this completely toolless modular system, you are looking forward to the idea that you won’t be needing tools to piece it together or take it apart. Plus you’re very excited to see your upgraded printed graphics on the included frosted acrylic panels and header, and that you can put your cute new personalized pens and business cards on the included shelves!


So, you left the shopping cart and now you’re thinking you need to upload your artwork, right? Well, yes, but you’re missing a step. Before you upload your artwork, you’ll need to format your artwork using our pre-made templates.


Whether you’re tempted to skip reading the instructions, or it’s sort of confusing to understand, here’s a little bit of information as to why it is imperative you use a template, and how to use it properly.


Each banner stand or display has its own template. And, each template has already been designed to ensure perfect sizing for a snug display fit. Our templates are part of our system of how we do things here, so please make sure to choose the correct template for your display of choice before you start adjusting your artwork or uploading it.


Let's do a run-through, using the Tahoe Twistlock Rack as our example: 

To begin searching for your template, look toward the right hand side of our website where you’ll see colorful tabs under “Graphic Support”. Click on the orange Template/Specs tab. Now, you will see a grouping of the display categories under the heading “Trade Show Product Template Index”. For the Tahoe Twistlock Rack, you should click on Tahoe Modular Displays to bring you directly to the correct template section. From this point, you will find Twistlock Rack and then click on the adobe acrobat pdf image under the column “Template” to open the template. Download and begin using this template as a guideline.


Things to be mindful of:
  • Bleed; if bleed is included on template, include it in your art file.
  • The Yellow Area; keep important information in the yellow area as the area beyond it is subject to getting cut or covered (depending on the display).
  • Use the templates; don’t make up your own size; don’t figure the graphic dimensions from the product dimensions; don’t figure the graphic dimensions from the graphic dimensions shown under the product description.
  • Use the templates (No, not a typo--just a friendly reminder:))

Remember, if you ever need help, our graphic design team is the most knowledgeable division of our staff to answer any template questions you may have. We’re just a call away! Ask to speak to the graphics department (888) 748-7446

New Popular Big Displays. Filling the 30 Foot Gap.

Sometimes you need a large display, but perhaps it’s not large enough to keep its portability, its easy setup and its light weight. You have to go custom. You don’t wanna go custom.

But what if I told you we have a super easy fabric pop up display that is 30 feet wide?

And it fits into one, I repeat, 1 travel bag! It’s only 65 lbs. Geometric accordion-like frame has plastic hooks attached that clip together to secure. Fabric comes attached, (though we recommend you remove graphic for long-term storage), and stays put with Velcro. Convenient in travel mode, in setup mode, and in takedown-storage mode—fits into a small space!

Introducing the 30 ft RPL Stretch Fabric Pop Up Display!
Let’s take a closer look at some pictures and setup video below!







Here is the frame expanded completely. Very simple.








Back to School, Back to Basics

It’s that time of year already...back to school. And what does that mean? Busy, busy with extracurricular activities! Let’s see, we have school sports and after-school clubs. PTA fundraisers and Fall Festivals. School plays and school car washes. Football games and homecoming.

Sounds like signs for days, right? Well, since we’re back to school, let’s get back to basics. Promote with signs that don’t break the bank!

The good news is that all you need is a simple hem & grommet banner to promote your school event. It’s a sign that you can roll up and take to go, or leave up for a while.  What’s more is that graphics on this material are printed with UV cured inks, making long-lasting impressions and preventing color-fading from the strong sunlight.

So, get a custom banner (“sports banner”). Choose our textured outdoor material - 13oz Scrim Vinyl - that’s only $7/sqft.

Simply, select hem and grommet finishing if you plan to zip tie your banner onto a chain link fence. Other finishings w…
