Better Frame of Mind
ORBUS EXHIBIT & DISPLAY GROUP
Orbus Exhibit & Display Group has added Vector Frame Edge, a wall-mounted fabric poster system that joins the Vector Frame line of 10- and 20-ft aluminum extrusion displays.
Vector Frame Edge displays feature 1-in., lightweight aluminum extrusion and push-fit fabric graphics; frames come with wall-mounting hardware for permanent or semi-permanent hanging in any environment. Vector Frame Edge is designed for use in retail, restaurants, and high-traffic areas, such as malls or office buildings.

Back to the Future
PosterGarden has looked back on childhood playtimes to create its latest display option: Varia.Sophora. The tension fabric display system is based on Tinkertoys, allowing users a plethora of combinations and configurations.
The new display features central hubs, straight and curved aluminum tubing, and connectors to create a range of frame shapes and styles, paired with full-color, custom-printed graphics.
Varia.Sophora requires no tools for assembly. The solid aluminum hubs and connectors fit together with 2-in. straight and curved aluminum tubing with push-button connectors. Full-color graphics, printed on PosterGarden’s EcoKnit fabric, slip over the frame and secure in a pillow case and zipper design. LCD monitors and tablets can be added to the display.
Curve your Enthusiasm
Beer, burgers, BMWs. No matter the product, Tex Visions’ Bowflag Custom can adapt to the shape and size of your graphic, adding a 3D element to the flag. The custom display with a contour cut on the outer edge is designed for clients wanting to advertise their business in a unique way.
Available in single-reverse and double-sided configurations, graphics may be printed on Varioflag A FR, a mesh-like knitted polyester that is durable and flame-retardant with self-sealing edges that do not require hemming, or Multiflag FR, a knitted polyester fabric that is flame-retardant and resistant to tearing. Heights can range from 10.2 to 17.7 ft, and widths can range from 2 to 5.6 ft. Bow Flag Custom display includes fiberglass poles, bungee cord with tensioner, and economy bag.
