With only an estimated 4 seconds to grab the attention of visitors at an exhibition your graphics need to work hard to get noticed. Lining the shell scheme walls with a graphic maximises the use of available branding space and preserves the footprint area of the stand for product display or visitor hospitality, and if done well enhances the overall impression to potential contacts.

Shell scheme booths are perhaps the most common exhibition space used and offer both opportunities and challenges. A standard shell scheme booth leaves you with plastic off-white wall panels approximately 1 metre wide separated by aluminium framework components.
Do you place graphics within the confines of the framework or go for the full coverage ‘seamless’ look? What material do you use? How do you attach the graphics?

We have tried to offer a range of options to hopefully suit every requirement and budget.

You don’t need to spend a fortune to attract visitors to your exhibition stand. Good design and quality graphics can transform a basic exhibition shell scheme or trade show booth into a stand that will draw the eye of visitors, create opportunities and win business. All our graphic printing takes place in house so you can be sure of top quality and fast delivery every time, we will also work with supplied artwork files or offer a full design back up service.

Sizes of panels are fairly consistent, but do vary from scheme to scheme – please advise us of which type of shell scheme you are exhibiting in. This information should be available in your exhibitors manual or can be supplied by the show organisers (we can talk to them on your behalf if you so wish). Our graphics are produced to suit all kinds of shell-scheme systems including octanorm, nimlock, modul, sodem, quad 4 plus many more.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch for advice about your options for shell scheme graphics.

Self-adhesive Prints

Rigid Panels

Supplied with Velcro and trimmed to fit within the visible area inside the framework a range of rigid panels are available. Transport and storage must be considered with this type of graphic, panels are almost 8 foot long, so too large and vulnerable for parcel carrier distribution.
