What Are Folding Panel Displays?
Folding panel displays are printed panels that you can fold up, making it easy to transport them to and from events. They come in a range of sizes, from small displays designed for tabletop use to larger, standalone displays.
These displays are typically made of lightweight but rigid material and will allow you to attach graphics using hook and loop or push-fit attachment methods. You can easily change out the graphics and can often add and remove panels for a smaller or larger display depending on your needs. They come in a range of colors, shapes and designs.
Folding displays are most frequently used at events such as trade shows and presentations, and they’re ideal if you want portable display boards with easily interchangeable graphics.

Why use folding panel displays? Here are some of the benefits they offer:

Factors to Consider When Choosing Folding Panel Displays
So how do you know which kind of folding panel display is best for you? Below are some of the things that separate one display from the next. Consider these factors when you’re deciding on a display.
Folding panel displays come in a range of sizes from small 48″ x 28″ tabletop display to larger 20 ft standing backdrop panels. Think about where you want to place your display and whether you want it to be a focal point of your booth or just one smaller part of it. Keep in mind that you can use add-on panels to change the size of your display as you need to.
2. Shape and Color
These displays are also available in a range of shapes and colors. Some of the designs are relatively simple, such as those with fewer panels. Others are a bit more complex. Consider your brand when choosing the shape of your display as well as the color, and pick something that matches your brand elements and personality. If you’re usually more straightforward, for example, you may want to choose a simpler design.
Another aspect to consider is how much you want to be able to customize your display. You may want to choose one that comes with more customization options so that you can change the height, shape and colors of your display whenever you like.
4. How You’ll Use Them
Keep in mind how you plan to use the display. If you’re planning to set it up on a tabletop, you should go for a display designed for tabletop use. If you don’t think you’ll have a table available, opt for a standalone display.
You might also have different goals for your graphics as well. If your goal is to attract the attention of passersby at a trade show, for instance, you may want to choose a larger display. If you want to use your panel display to provide information to people who are already visiting your trade show booth, you could choose a smaller tabletop option.
Tips for Using Folding Panel Displays
Want to get the most from your folding panel display? Try the following tips:
- Keep text easily readable:Text is often an important part of how you get your message across, but it’s only effective if it’s easy to read. Be careful not to pack too much copy into one space, as doing so can make your graphic look crowded and hard to read. Also, be sure to use an easily legible font. Consider from how far you want people to be able to read your sign, then size your text appropriately.
- Include images: Images are an excellent way to add appeal to your display graphics. They can help grab people’s attention and can also play an important role in conveying your message to your audience. As you know, a picture is with a thousand words.
- Use brand elements: As you’re designing your display, keep your brand in mind. Consider adding in brand elements such as logos, slogans and colors. Beyond that, ensure that everything you do aligns with your brand. For instance, if your company is about all-natural products and connecting with nature, don’t include industrial or techy imagery in your design.
- Consider your whole trade show exhibit: If your folding panel display is part of a larger trade show exhibit, keep the whole booth in mind when you’re creating your display. Design it as a part of the whole, and make sure it fits in with the rest of your exhibit to help get your overall message across to event attendees.
