Everything You Need to Know About Display Boards

Display Boards are so simple in theory that it is pretty easy to get carried away at face value. However, there is much more going on behind the development that distinguishes a lot of display boards from each other. From the materials that compose the display boards right the way through to the finishing touches, each makes a difference as to whether they are the right display boards for you. We're going to take you through each element that comes together to create the display board and consider what to look out for when you are browsing.

The Core:

This is often the part that you can never see, but it can make all of the difference. Many suppliers use different materials for the core, including pinnable materials or more lightweight solutions such as chipboard. The two things to consider when you are looking at display boards are; how heavy are they and is the quality good enough to last for years to come. Others have fallen foul in the past by choosing stunning looking display boards, only to find a cheap core which began to fall apart simply due to consistent use.

At Go Displays, we manufacture all of our Display Boards with what is known as a honeycomb core. The major benefit to this is that by providing space inside, this drastically cuts the overall weight of the panel. Despite the missing material, the core is then compressed under immense pressure to reinforce the panel while retaining its lightweight nature. This not only ensures a core that is designed to last, but is also very easy to transport when you are on the move.

The Fabric:

There are generally two options when you are considering which material to pick for your Folding Display Boards. Velcro friendly or pinnable? The pinnable fabric has been around for far longer and will be more recognisable if you have used display boards in the past, however the Velcro solution is far easier and helps to significantly extend the life of your Folding Display Boards. Both are available in a huge range of colours, so it really boils down to what you intend to use them for.

Pinnable display boards work best in permanent environments where content will remain for a significant period of time. The major downside is that over time, the impact of using pins eventually begins to catch up, resulting in damage to your display boards. Alternatively, the Velcro friendly fabric is ideal when you are on the move, or intend to change your content frequently. Simply apply Velcro dots to the back of the content, and apply to the fabric. This not only preserves your display boards, but it also protects your content too.

The Accessories:

It is important to consider how you envision the outcome to be when you are looking for your display boards. There is a whole host of accessories out there to enhance your display, but they are not all compatible with each other. This includes bags and protective sleeves which will be suitable for a certain size panel but will struggle with others. Here at Go Displays, we offer a wide range of accessories to accompany the display boards, but certain add-ons such as the printed posters are only suitable with select sizes of the display boards.

The Finish:

While all of these factors are important, chances are the one which will matter most is how it looks and whether you are getting value for your money. This is obviously an issue when ordering online, so if there is the opportunity to see the display boards in person, then take it to ensure that you are making the right decision. If you find the right style which is also composed of quality materials, then you can rest assured that it has been manufactured to last for many years to come.
