Exhibition Stand Design

Buying an exhibition stand is a big investment.

Without a striking exhibition stand design that stands out from the crowd at your next exhibition, you are arguably not getting an effective ROI on your exhibition stand.

Sometimes creating print-ready artwork can be challenging and we understand this.

That is why we have a range of artworking services and options to take advantage of. Read more about them below.

Graphic and artworking options

1. Use our banner design tool

For smaller displays such as banners, use our range of pre-built templates and styles to create your own artwork.

Our design tool provides you with complete control and flexibility to create print-ready designs. Our free to use tool allows users to: insert images, logos and custom text with the added ability to move and re-size elements as needed.

2. Artworking services

For larger exhibition stand designs and banners, we have a few different artworking service options to choose from to suit your needs:

- Standard artwork service: If you have all the elements needed to create a design from a brief, our standard artwork service is the best option. This service ranges from £25 (half an hour artworking) for smaller displays such as our banner stands, and from £50 (one hour artworking) for our larger exhibition stands.

- Artwork plus service: Includes everything our standard service offers, with the added benefit of our graphics team re-configuring your designs to fit multiple forms of media if required (i.e. artwork designs on a roller banner would be restructured to fit business cards).

Within your allotted artworking time, you are free to make as many changes as you like.

It is important to note that change requests are always custom and may take longer than the artworking time you have paid for, meaning artworking charges may be increased.

We will always let you know if artworking charges are likely to increase based on the number of change requests we receive from you.

3D Artworking Proofs

We can provide 3D artworking proofs on selected exhibition stands.

This includes taking print-ready artwork from you (or us if we’ve done it for you) and rendering this file onto the selected exhibition stand you are purchasing.

This will provide a unique insight into how your graphics and stand will look in a real life environment – enabling you to make amends to the artwork if needed.

A 3D artworking proof would look something like this:

3. Full graphic design service

Our full graphic design package is the ultimate design service on offer. This package offers a complete artwork design process with a dedicated in-house graphic designer.

Starting with a consultation from your dedicated graphic designer, they will work with you on a 1-to-1 basis and create print-ready designs from scratch. No collateral is needed (apart from your brand guidelines) and our designers will do everything for you.

As this is a custom service, it’s important to talk to one of our account managers to find out more information.
