What is Silicone Edge Graphic Fabric Framing?
Silicone Edge Graphic (SEG) Fabric Framing is a great way to provide information about your company, promote your brand and add extra aesthetic appeal to trade show exhibits or for the lobby of your office or commercial store location.
SEGs are graphics printed on fabric featuring a silicone strip sewn around the perimeter. The aluminum frame receives the silicone strip into a small groove to create a perfect, taut wall-like tension free of wrinkles. Print Stretched Silicone Edge Fabric Graphic Frames can be backlit with LED lights to create eye-catching visual displays highlighting your custom printed graphics and slogans. SpeedPro features SEG frame options for any budget including Edge-Lit Frames, Direct Backlit Frames, Non-Lit Frames and Guided LED Panel frames. SEG Frames are simple to set up and easy to take down. Originally introduced at the EuroShop fair in 2008, over the last dozen years SEGs have become a very popular choice for displays due to their ease of assembly and their sleek contemporary look.
Where does SpeedPro use SEGs?
SpeedPro puts Silicone Edge Graphics to work for you across a number of possible products, including:
- Vector Frame Modular Displays
- Trade Show Fabric Backwalls
- Hybrid Pro Modular Exhibits
Vector Frame Modular displays have a signature extrusion silver or aluminum frame which allows for seamless push-fit graphics, with joints and borders secured by Silicone Edge Graphic Frames. SpeedPro economy essential line and the premium Master collection offers many options to select from when designing your preferred inline modular display. Available accessories for such displays include counters, literature holders, shelving, monitor mounts and more.
Vector Frame Banners feature 2-inch aluminum extrusion frames with their SEG fabrics, this allows the edge of the fabric graphic to be easily slipped into the frame and held taught. The range of banner sizes available begins with widths of below one foot and up to 20 feet, and heights below four feet and up to full height models. Custom fabric banners come generally in 10-by-10 models or standing banner silicone-lined edge graphic frames. SEG framed banners are appropriate for indoor and outdoor materials and the graphics can be switched out on the frames if you want to plan ahead and print out seasonal graphics or signs advertising upcoming sales to slip onto the frame at the appropriate time.
Trade show fabric backwalls also make use of silicone edge graphic frames wherein pillowcase style graphics are slipped over the frame. These displays are 1 to 4 inches thick which makes them really pop and leave a favorable impression. The premium designer line of Formulate backwalls are modern and sophisticated and are available in 10-, 20- and 30-foot displays. Available contemporary design features include monitor mounts, lighting and graphic accents. The backwalls of the 10 and 20-foot booths are comprised of multiple panels and can come in different shapes that fit together to create aesthetic visual interest and highlight the features of your brand. The 30-foot models come either as multiple graphics or as one massive graphic for an extra “wow” factor. Such backwall designer displays are guaranteed to stand out and mark your booth as a high-end trade show location for show visitors to engage with.
Another great trade-show product is the Hybrid Pro Modular Exhibit which features sleek inline displays and tons of extra features. These 10′ modular exhibits use heavy-duty aluminum extrusion frames and push-fit silicone edge fabric graphics. Some of the bells and whistles that you can add to such a display include backlit center graphic panels, dual monitor mounts, backwall tables, cases and LED display lighting. Check out mock-ups at your local SpeedPro location to see which features would best benefit your display.
Silicone edge graphic frame displays are the most popular choice for large format printed signage applications in retail spaces. With a luxurious smooth finish that fabric images bring to the table especially compared against the rigidly structured feel of traditional signage. It is likely that any trip to a mall in the last few years has exposed you to SEG displays at stores such as GAP, Apple, Nike, H&M, Macy’s and Under Armour. SEG displays featuring dye-sublimated fabric graphics are a smart choice wherever and whenever you need them. Due to the easily replaceable graphics, the displays are a great investment that will last for a long time to come. SEG is machine washable on gentle cycles with cold water, however, we do recommend you allow them to air dry rather than risk the graphic in a machine dryer.
