All these fabrics are going to have different price points. I just wanted you to be aware of their availability and where they are used. You may want to ask your exhibit house or better yet what you are trying to achieve with the image like whether you want a crisper image, more durable etc. and get the different price points.

As always, please respond with your questions or comments and let others know about EXHIBITOR LOUNGE.COM. We will see you next week. Until then, I am your host Michael Gray telling you to RELAX in the Exhibitor Lounge.
