Purchasing replacement graphics for your popup display is easy at MODdisplays. If you own a Standard 10ft Popup Display, replacing your main graphics and end panels costs as little as $1,200, with free graphic design included in the purchase price. This is an incredible value, especially considering that $1,200 will only buy you 3 graphic panels at the industry’s standard price.

We make ordering your new graphic panels simple through the use of our informative website and our integrated graphics uploader. When you upload your artwork into our advanced system, your artwork will be automatically associated with your order. Any color matching details you provide will be included on the work order, which ensures that no information gets lost in the communication process. Your project is immediately assigned to one of our experienced graphic designers, who will check your files for proper resolution, image quality, color correctness, spelling, and sizing to ensure that no mistakes are made in your graphic output.

Our popup display graphics are printed directly on a high-quality PET substrate using inkjet technology. The graphic is then thermally laminated (or “encapsulated”) with a protective film to ensure that your graphics last a long time. We ship our replacement graphics in solid tubes (instead of flimsy cardboard boxes) that are extremely protective to ensure that your graphic is not damaged in shipping or transportation. Please feel free to call 877.663.3976 or email sales@moddisplays with questions about our popup display graphics.

FAQ: Popup Displays

Posted by Andy Keeler on September 19, 2008
Trade Show Displays, Trade Show Graphics / No Comments

popup displayPopup displays are the most popular portable trade show displays on the market today. Since their invention over 30 years ago, exhibitors have found that these exhibits reduce the overall cost associated with exhibiting, but do not require that they sacrifice a professional look and feel. Full graphic popup displays dominate the trade show landscape, reigning as the enduring and undisputed king of portable trade show booths. If you have ever attended or exhibited at a trade show, you probably understand how popup displays work, but this article will answer some common questions about the structure and the graphics of the popup exhibits from MODdisplays.

Why are your popup displays so much cheaper than those sold by other exhibit houses?

This question has two answers:

1- We don’t believe our customers should have to pay for our mistakes. Graphic houses across the country charge outrageous prices for popup display graphics because they need to cover the cost of all the panels that they printed or produced incorrectly. Small printing operations with inexperienced equipment operators make tons of mistakes, and they will often need to reprint your graphics 2 or 3 times before they get it right. Unfortunately, the customer usually eats the cost of those reprints, even though they had nothing to do with the mistake.

2- MODdisplays consciously chooses to make less money per exhibit in order to keep costs down for our network of clients. In order to make any money at all, MODdisplays needs to sell exhibits for more than it costs us to produce them. Many of our competitors will charge their clients  $400 or $500 for a popup display graphic panel when it costs them almost nothing to produce. This is highway robbery, plain and simple. In the 1990’s, popup display graphics legitimately cost much more than they do now, but with new advances in printing technology there is no excuse to charge so much for popup display graphics.

How long will it take me to set up my popup display?

No popup display should ever take more than 30 minutes to set up, even the first time. With practice, you should be able to set up an entire 10ft popup unit in less than 10 minutes. Exhibitors love the quick set up because it allows them to mingle on the show floor with other exhibitors and attendees instead of wasting valuable time setting up their exhibit.

What kind of graphics are used with my popup display?

Popup display graphics are printed on high quality photographic paper, and then thermally laminated. The inkjet printers that produce our popup display graphics are capable of printing at over 1200 DPI, which will result in extremely high quality output. Laminating your graphic panels protects them from scratches or damage during shipping, and helps them to keep their shape even when they are applied to your popup display frame.

What are “magnetic channel bars” and how are they used in the context of my popup display?

Magnetic channel bars attach to the frame of your popup display in order to hold your popup display graphics. You should never buy a popup display that does not offer a direct magnet-to-magnet connection, as magnet-to-metal exhibits will cause your booth graphics to have alignment issues. Our channel bars attach to our popup frame magnetically, which means they can be attached to your exhibit much more quickly than those that need to “snap” into place.

How will my popup display ship?

Your entire exhibit will ship in a durable, rugged shipping case that is specifically designed for popup displays. One compartment within the case is designed to hold the graphics, while the other compartment will hold your hardware. The lights for your popup fit neatly into the lid, which leaves you with plenty of extra room to store literature and other accessories within your case.

Accessorize Your Popup Display

Standard 10ft Popup with KioskIf you’ve ever attended a trade show, you know that popup displays tend to dominate the landscape. Exhibitors love popup displays because they are easy to set up, affordable, lightweight, and provide a large graphic backdrop. As more and more exhibitors have began to incorporate multimedia into their trade show booths, popup exhibits became less popular. With the release of the Standard 10ft Popup with Kiosk, MODdisplays has devised a system that allows exhibitors to have the convenience of a popup display with the flexibility of a modular hybrid exhibit.

The foot of the kiosk slides neatly under the frame of the popup, allowing the kiosk to fit flush against the back wall of your popup exhibit. Monitors, literature holders, product shelves, counters, and clothing racks can be added to the kiosk to create a custom look that meets the needs of your company. Thanks to the modular nature of the kiosk, accessories can be added long after your exhibit is purchased, which means your company will have plenty of room to grow into a full-featured exhibit in the years to come.

The Standard 10ft Popup Display with Arc is another modular popup booth that has quickly become on of our best-selling products. This unit uses two kiosks connected by a stylish section of curved aluminum. Despite the stylish appearance of our unique popup systems (you won’t find these units anywhere else on the market), they can be set up in as little as 20 minutes, and they can be shipped via UPS or FedEx. Like every trade show display from MODdisplays, these units are designed with style and portability in mind.

Popup Display with Arc

Due to the instant popularity of our new popup display option, we have decided to release another popup display configuration. This setup features a pair of XRline columns connected by an arc made from curved aluminum. In addition to the aesthetic appeal of this configuration, the XRline columns provide a number of customization options that were not available before. The image below represents the Standard 10ft Popup Display with Arc, which also includes three front mount aluminum literature shelves:

Standard 10ft Popup Display with Arc

This trade show display system can be purchased for $3,758 (which includes complete, unlimited graphic design service). Although literature shelves are pictured in the image above, you are free to customize your own accessories. If you prefer, you can add counters, monitors, product shelves, or other functional accessories. To customize your exhibit, please give us a call at 877.663.3976 or email sales@moddisplays.com.

New Popup Display Option

Meet the newest addition to MODdisplays’ extensive line of popup displays: the Standard 10ft Popup with Kiosk. Thanks to the slim aluminum foot of the XRline displays, the kiosk is able to nest beneath our Standard line of popup displays for a clean fit. The ability to add XRline kiosks to our line of popup displays allows you to use literature shelves, monitor mounts, counters, and product shelves with your popup display (these options were previously unavailable at MODdisplays).

Standard 10ft Popup with Kiosk

If you already own a popup display and need to purchase the kiosk separately, that is also an option. Purchasing our popup kiosk allows you to move your trade show exhibit into the modern age without purchasing an entirely new booth display. Our kiosks can be customized to meet the individual needs of your company, so please feel free to give us a call for more details at 877.663.3976 or email sales@moddisplays.com.

The versatility of this new system is unmatched for the price (the system pictured above retails for $3,237, which means it costs less to buy our popup system with a kiosk than to buy a full graphic popup alone from most trade show display companies). MODdisplays is able to sell high quality products for much less than the competition because we do not believe in making outrageous margins on graphic production (some companies will charge over $500 for a graphic panel that costs less than $50 to produce). Those margins are built in to cover the cost of mistakes, but we believe that we should pay for our own mistakes (not our clients).

Popup Displays

Posted by Andy Keeler on August 09, 2007
Trade Show Displays / No Comments

Popup displays have been standard in the portable trade show display industry for years. They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, listed below:

  • 6ft Tabletop: Will fit on a typical 6ft trade show table.
  • 8ft Tabletop: Will fit on a typical 8ft trade show table.
  • 8ft Floor Display: These displays are 8ft wide by 7.5ft tall.
  • 10ft Floor Display: These displays are designed for a 10′ x 10′ space.
  • 20ft Inline Display: These displays are designed for a 10′ x 20′ space.
  • 20ft Island Display: Viewable image area from all sides, designed for a 20′ x 20′ space.

All popup displays can be equipped with Velcro-receptive fabric, or with custom image trade show graphics. Many exhibitors opt to use both by placing their graphics onto the Velcro-receptive fabric. This allows for maximum flexibility, but is more difficult to set up and take down.

Visit MODdisplays for product reviews and advice related to popup displays. This will help you make the best choice when selecting your exhibit.
