How long are the feet on the bottom of the Straight Frame Display Stand?
The feet are 18" long x 2" wide so, when the Fabric Tension Display is set up, the feet will extend 9" on each side of the stand. The Small and Medium sizes have 2 feet and the Large size has 3 feet.
What are the differences between your Tension Fabric Display and your Step and Repeat Banner?
Both products are used as backdrops and can be set up with step and repeat artwork. They are both very portable and easy to set up and dismantle, and can have different banners installed onto the same stand. The main differences are in the appearance and the assembly. The Tension Fabric Display has a pillowcase banner which slips over the frame and zips up at the bottom, so you cannot see any of the frame, and the banner is stretched taut. It’s poles click together with a push button. Whereas the Step and Repeat Banner has a single sided banner with rod pockets at top and bottom for the horizontal poles to slide through, and you can see the vertical poles on each side. It’s banner can have a small amount of slack in it and it has poles that screw together.
Does the fabric pillowcase banner look smooth?
The pillowcase banner slips over the top of the tubular frame and is stretched tight to the bottom, where a zipper runs along the bottom edge. When it is zipped up the whole banner is taut and has a completely smooth appearance.
Why is the SignWeave™ polyester fabric material the best fabric for Fabric Tension Displays?
Our SignWeave™ polyester fabric material has been specially developed for use as backdrop banners such as Fabric Tension Displays and Step and Repeat Banners. The SignWeave™ material has a light absorbing matte finish which reduces glare and makes it perfect for photography. The 9 oz. material provides a strong, thick fabric and a perfect surface to allow vibrant colors to be printed using our state of the art dye sublimation process. The finished product is a high quality, hard wearing and long lasting product.
Can I use the Tension Fabric Display as a photography backdrop?
This product is great for use as a photography backdrop. The premium 9 oz. SignWeave™ polyester fabric material has a light absorbing matte finish which reduces glare and makes it perfect for photography.
If I choose single sided print, what color will the back of the banner be?
The fabric is white before it is printed. If you select single sided printing we will print your graphic on the front of the pillowcase banner, and the back of the pillowcase banner will be white.
Is the frame adjustable in size?
No - the Tension Fabric Display stand is not adjustable.
Does this fabric allow light to pass through it? Does it offer a degree of transparency?
The fabric material is not transparent because it is a heavy 9oz. material however it will allow a small amount of light through. The darker the print color, the less light will be visible through the fabric.
How does the display attach to the frame?
Please refer to the assembly instructions on the web page. Once the frame is assembled the fabric pillowcase banner is simply pulled over the top of the frame and then pulled and stretched all the way down to the bottom of the frame. It is secured by a zipper which runs all the way along the bottom of the banner. Once it is zipped up the fabric banner will be tight and secure.
What material is the frame made out of?
The frame is made from tubular anodised aluminum, which provides great rigidity as well as being light for portability.
Do the aluminum poles have bungee cords inside of them?
Yes - each set of vertical and horizontal poles is connected by a bungee cord, making it easy to join them together when assembling your stand.
Is it necessary to use the zipper at the bottom?
The Tension Fabric Display will still work if the zipper is not used. However it is designed to have the zipper used so the fabric can be stretched taut and smooth. If the zipper is not used there may be some slack in the banner display.
Will the display sag when attached to the frame?
When properly attached to the frame, with the zipper closed, your custom tension fabric display will not bunch up or sag when displayed. Tension provided by the frame will cause the display to remain taut and wrinkle free while being displayed.
Will my display have seams?
We do not have seams on any of our fabric banners - they are all printed in one solid piece.
Will the fabric banner easily tear?
The fabric banner should not tear when subjected to normal usage. But please be aware that it is a fabric banner so should be kept away from sharp objects. When not in use, you should ensure that it is completely dry and then carefully fold it and store it in a dry location.
What printing process do you use for the Fabric Tension Banners?
We use a Dye Sublimation process to print the fabric banners in full CMYK color. Dye Sublimation is a method that transfers your design from a paper film to the fabric using a heat press method. The ink is pressed into the fabric to provide you with a vibrant long lasting fabric banner.
Do you hem the edges of your Fabric Tension Banners?
Yes - we double stitch hem the edges of the fabric banner. The stitching is only about ½” wide but makes sure that the banner will not fray at the edges.
Are the Fabric Tension Displays suitable for use outdoors?
This product is ideally suited to being used indoors. The fabric banner and the backdrop stand are weather resistant, so it is possible to use this product outdoors, however you will need to take every precaution to avoid it being blown over by the wind. We do not have any method of anchoring the frame if you use it outdoors.
Will the design on the banner fade or rub off?
The fabric banner is printed using the latest state of the art dye sublimation process. The ink will last indefinitely indoors and will only fade when exposed to the sun for long periods. The ink locks into the fabric so is quite scratch resistant but care must be taken to avoid sharp objects that may tear the fabric.
How do I set up my Fabric Tension Display?
Please refer to the Assembly Guide on this web page for instructions on how to assemble your Fabric Tension Display. It should only take about 5 minutes for 2 people to set it up.
How should the banner be stored?
We recommend that you ensure the banner is completely dry, and then carefully fold it to fit inside the carry bag supplied.
How do I remove creases from the fabric banner?
We recommend that you use a steamer to remove any creases from the polyester fabric. It is also possible to use a warm iron but important that you use an ironing cloth so that the iron does not contact the fabric.
Can I wash and dry the fabric banner?
The fabric banner is suitable for use in a washing machine on a gentle cycle using cold water - but please avoid using harsh detergents or bleach. Please do not place the fabric banner in a tumble dryer - only air dry the fabric banner and ensure it is completely dry before storing.
