Today we are going to talk about the fabric pop-ups and proper way to dismantle. A lot of times, after the show when we get the exhibit back, the fabric is pulled off the frame and/or pieces or parts are busted. We wanted to stop and have one series devoted to – “How to close up the portable fabric exhibit.”
I want to go over a few things with you. I am a big fan of the metal connectors. There are plastic connectors and plastic frames but the ones that have metal seem to last longer. Working with a display house as opposed to buying them online, some of the things that we offer are the ability to repair the frames in-house. That is the key component when it comes to be able to turn around a pop up exhibit real quick.
So why do damages occur? What usually happens that the frame is laid over and everybody thinks that all the hooks have been disconnected but one reconnects. Then you try to close the frame up and next thing you know is that a hub breaks and it becomes hard to close and snaps.
So I am going to show you how to close up a fabric frame system. This at Exhibit Edge is called a Picasso – 3×3 which is 8’ x 8’. The reason it is called a 3×3 is that each there are 3 vertical quadrants and 3 horizontal. Hence the name – 3×3 frame. First you want to do is lay the pop up flat and fold the end caps first.
- Leave the fabric graphic on
- Make sure all the hooks are disconnected
- Lay it horizontal
- Fold the ends in
- And Fold and fit inside the carry bag
Any company that has sales people that you send on the road with portable fabric pop up exhibit, send them the link to this video so that they can see the proper way to close and store the pop up.
