Kitting out a shell scheme stand for maximum effect

A shell scheme package is usually the lowest cost option when considering taking space at an exhibition. It simply means you’ll have an allotted space at the event with basic undecorated stand walls, a fascia board with your company name on it, lighting, flooring and access to a power supply. The rest is up to you.

Inspiration needed

Think of yourself as an artist with a blank canvas. Will you be intimidated or inspired? The danger is that your space will look all too similar to all those around it. The best way to avoid that is to get expert advice from a local company such as Spiral and Banner Printing Android. Our team is packed with people who’ve dealt with the shell scheme stand problem hundreds of times.

Beautifully printed graphics are a great start of course. But we’ve got one or two other tricks up our sleeve. Possible solutions include:

Dropping a pop-up stand into the space

It will instantly look less like a sterile unit and more like your own purpose-designed exhibition stand.

Installing free-standing desks

We can also provide literature stands, with seating and shelving.

Our unique Curvorama system

This can transform the space by making it possible to display graphics from wall to wall, ensuring that the shell scheme posts don’t get in the way.

Bespoke printed cube seating

They can feature your logo or other messaging and create a much smarter and more professional impression than standard chairs with a graphics applied.

So now you know that taking a simple shell scheme space doesn’t have to mean settling for basic or boring. You don’t have to shell out a lot of money to make it the main attraction. Contact us at any time and we’ll tell you more.

From Vexillum to Wenger Out: a brief history of banners

Spiral’s Banner Printing Android service is the future of the banner – any message you like with speedy turnaround and pin sharp quality on hard-wearing PVC banners. But what about the past?

All through history banners have been hung from buildings and displayed in gatherings and processions. They’ve always carried powerful messages and colourful images (just not as beautifully printed as ours). So here’s a quick sprint through 2000 years of banner history.

Ancient Rome

Imagine you’re walking along Watling Street in 29BC and a unit of the Roman army is heading towards you. The first thing you’ll see is their vexillum, the banner that tells you who they are and why you should be very afraid of them.

The Latin word means ‘little sail’ and vexilla (that’s the plural) were usually a sail-like piece of decorated linen hung from a horizontal cross bar and carried on a big staff. Two thousand years later, the study of flags is still  known as vexilology.

Heraldry

Medieval knights in battle gear wanted everyone to know who they were, especially fair damsels. But they also wanted to wear a full face mask that stopped them getting their head bashed in. That’s why banners displaying coats of arms, crests, mottos and other heraldic material began to appear in mediaeval England after the Norman conquest. Heraldry rapidly developed strict rules, and to this day it preserves the Anglo-Norman language. Although if you see a ‘lion rampant’ or ‘unicorn couchant’ now, it’s more likely to be a pub sign that a battle banner.

Sashimono

Neither a raw seafood dish nor a silky robe, a sashimono is a small banner worn by soldiers in feudal Japan. A bit like a checkout assistant’s name badge, but with added violence.

Trades unions and politics

In their heyday, the nineteenth and early to mid-twentieth century, trade union banners were a familiar sight, carried in processions, galas and demonstrations.  Typically painted in oils or embroidered on silk, the designs featured slogans, union insignia and idealised images of happy workers or families. Various political causes also often used banners in their marches and meetings, the Suffragettes and the Orange Order for example.

Russian Protesters

Sport

Funny and/or heartfelt banners are often seen in the stands at sporting events, especially football. In 2013 fans of Club Nacional de Football in Uruguay held up a 600 by 50 metres banner during a match. It weighed 2 tonnes, so they presumably didn’t hold it up for very long.

Huge Sports Banner

Towards the end of his reign as team manager at Arsenal, banners calling for Arsene Wenger to resign or be sacked became a familiar sight. In fact ‘Wenger Out’ banners briefly went viral, with sightings of witty folk holding them appearing in unlikely places – such as Zimbabwe, Ethiopia and Times Square, New York.

Heartwarming Customers Story

A few years ago, we held a Banner Printing Android competition. The winner would receive a large print of a photo of their choice. We are so happy to hear that after years have passed, the winner of our competition still has her print on display in her home. The image really is fantastic!
 
The competition winner, Jess has recently contacted us via Facebook. She told us how grateful she was to have been the winner and also the reason why she still cherishes her print today. We really appreciate her sharing this story and also her kind words!
Jess’s story means a lot to us and we hope that her story inspires some of you.
“My cat, Poppy, who I took the photo of passed away in late 2015. He was my best friend from the age of 3. I still miss him a lot and the print, which now hangs proudly in my home is a constant reminder of the incredible bond we had.” Heartwarming words from Jess which we can all appreciate.
