Browse the catalog of most display manufacturers and you’re sure to find the standard fare. But such "standard fare," even with the most spectacular integrated graphic, may not truly help your client’s message stand out in a sea of banner stands, lightboxes, and otherwise vanilla offerings. The trick is to find a combination of graphic and display that will grab the attention of your client’s customers while not blowing out their budget or your margins.

To help, we’ve gathered a sampling of displays from around the marketplace: from banner stands that are more environmentally friendly to exhibit systems that are easier to use and transport, to new shapes and sizes and one-of-a-kind displays for the customer who wants it all. No matter what kind of display you and your client opt for, keep in mind that it is an essential part of the perfect signage equation.

The Best of Both Worlds
A lightbox can usually draw the attention of passersby. A looping video, if placed in the right setting, can guide onlookers through demonstrations, commercials, or films. This logic is what leads Bowman Displays to believe that passersby will stop and stare at its Digital Video Lightbox, a hybrid unit that incorporates an LCD screen (or multiple screens) into its Ultra Thin Snap Frame Display.

Customers have the option of choosing a Digital Video Lightbox with slideshow or video capabilities on a 7- or 15-inch LCD screen. A dual-screen Digital Video Lightbox is also available. The digital slideshow data is fed through a data card, and the Digital Video Lightbox has a DVD player. Displays are available with or without sound.

As with the Ultra Thin Snap Frame Display, the Digital Video Lightbox comes with a silver aluminum snap frame for front-loading graphics. Sizes vary from 24 x 30 and 24 x 36 to 32 x 40 and 40 x 50 inches. Each lightbox is 2.9-inches deep and includes a programmable remote control, heavy-duty D hooks for hanging, and a clear nonbreakable APET lens. The Digital Video Lightbox is UL-listed.


A Green Twist on Lit
Earlier this year, Drytac released its offerings for the "green" customer: two banner-stand options-the retractable Panda Stand and the Panda L-Stand-made almost entirely of bamboo. The company has now added a Panda literature stand, also made from bamboo, to its environmentally friendly line.
