Adding fabrics to a display are a cost-effective way to get large, bold images across a wide area with minimal seams. Fabric graphics are lower in cost than the older traditional way of doing graphics that use lexan or hard boards. They are less prone to damage than the harder materials. It is also possible to gain significant savings when the time comes to ship the display, as fabric graphics are much lighter.
Fabric graphics attached to display hardware in a few different ways. They can be applied with velcro, stretched over a tube frame, or with a silicon edge strip that is sewn onto the graphic. The silicon edge strip is then pressed into a channel on an aluminum frame, allowing for a very tight, wrinkle-free appearance.
