Exhibition stand graphic production
As graphics play a major part in the fundamental success of any exhibition stand, we recognised a long time ago the importance of bringing all graphic production in-house. In doing so we maintain the best cutting-edge technology and tools for first class print quality and output. We have a dedicated and experienced team of art workers, file runners, printers, finishers, sewers and technicians to guide and advise you or your graphic agency, ensuring a fantastic end result.
Dye-sublimation printed fabrics
Fabrics are an important part of our exhibition stands and the colour vibrancy and detail has to be seen to be believed. We use the latest dye-sublimation print process, which transfers a high quality image onto a beautiful fabric that stretches and fits into our extrusion framework to produce immaculate solid-looking back walls. Using fabric walls reduces storage and shipping costs when compared to the traditional industry approach of graphics over solid walls. We combine the fabrics with our tube bending and welding capability to create fluid fabric structures ideal for suspended branded structures over stands.
In-house large format printing
Nimlok is one of the few exhibition stand contractors with a significant in-house large format print resource. Printing innovation and technology have been substantial areas of investment for us, and we use the latest Vutek ‘direct to substrate’ UV printers, which deliver a high quality and very durable print that does not require over laminates which can be prone to peeling. The prints are UV stable and water resistant, making them ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications. In addition to printing on PVC we can also print directly onto foamex and acrylic, which opens up a range of new graphic effects. This is enhanced further by the printers’ ability to print white as well as other colours. Most digital printers are CMYK only (cyan, magenta, yellow and black). This means we can create effects like a floating image on a clear sheet of acrylic. These capabilities mean we can deliver whatever you need, whether it be a graphic, poster, banner, stand-off acrylic print, light box or floor graphic.
Digital cutting technology
Our graphics department is equipped with the latest digital cutter technology with an optical sensor detecting cut marks and guiding a knife, saw or laser, ensuring perfect finishing on all substrates. This enables us to cut out the most intricate logos and shapes and make a real feature of certain areas of your exhibition stand.
