When you’re shopping around for trade show displays, it can be hard to tell the difference between manufacturers. Almost every company promises high-quality displays, simple setup, flexible configurations, et cetera, et cetera. But there are a few standouts in the industry, and one of them is Featherlite Exhibits.
We’re one of the few trade show display companies in the Mid-Atlantic to partner with Featherlite, which is based in Minneapolis and manufactures its products in the United States.
Featured Product: Featherlite Medallion Tension Fabric Displays for use in in-line and small island configurations.
Why we’re fans of Featherlite Exhibits
Consistent high quality: We’ve been selling Featherlite displays for a while, and our clients have been universally pleased with both the durability and ease of setup. Featherlite’s displays are well made, with clearly labeled parts and simple instructions. Other, cheaper displays are hard to set up and can appear warped. “It literally looks like someone twisted it,” says Chase Howells, FrontLine Exhibits’ Senior Account Manager. “It’s really embarrassing.”
Graphic flexibility: Most trade show display vendors sell a standard assortment of square and rectangular booth elements. Featherlite gives you countless options, including angled headers and curves and varying heights and widths. We really like the placards they offer, too: smaller graphic elements that attach securely to the frame and add more dimension to a display.
Interchangeable elements: You don’t always want your trade show exhibit to look the same, right? You may want to add elements to fill a larger space, or swap out pieces to tailor your message to a particular show audience. Featherlite makes it easy. One setup we particularly like is deceptively simple: just two side-by-side tension-fabric panels. With two-sided printing, you can place messaging on both sides of each panel and instantly have a customizable, changeable display. Printing the second side costs a fraction of the price of printing a full additional display.
Superior print quality: “We’ve looked at 20 different companies’ fabric printing, and they’re by far the best,” Howells says. Featherlite prints displays with the dye sublimation process, which dyes the image onto the fabric instead of directly printing on its surface. You can see the difference: blacks, blues and reds are saturated, photos are crisp and gradients are clear. “People are always very impressed with the end product,” Howells says.
