We’ve done all the research, tested the products, and answered your questions. Here are the top three, must-own fabric displays for your business.

If you’re looking for a full-height floor display, the FabriMural ranges from 3’, 5’, and 8’ wide. They can be single-side (with or without endcaps) or double-sided. The FabriMural display includes hard cases that can be converted into counters and accessories such as lights and mounting hardware.
Who should buy/use a FabriMural Display?
If your business is just starting out or if your company is beginning to test attending trade shows, banner stands and smaller displays are your best option. However, if you are looking to upgrade your display, move to a larger booth size, or want to create spaces within your booth while still staying portable, then FabriMural Displays are a great option. This display is better suited for companies that have a larger budget (starts around $1,000+) and want to invest their money in higher-quality displays that have a seamless look.
Where should your company use the FabriMural Display?
The FabriMural fabric display can be used in almost any space. For offices, the 3’ display is perfect for information stations in your company’s lobby. At an event, the 5’ and 8’ wide displays are great as backdrops or step-and-repeats. At trade shows, the FabriMural can work in multiple booth sizes, ranging from your 6’ space to your 20’x20’ Island booths. Because of the easy pop up frame and continuous fabric graphic, you can create huge graphic backwalls, information towers (double sided with endcaps), or even section off your space using multiple sizes in tandem with each other.
When should you use the FabriMural Display?
Does your product, logo, or marketing have a lot of color and great graphics? Does your message have text that shouldn’t be separated by seams? Are you going to a show or event that needs a stunning backdrop to help your company stand out? If you answered “yes” to any of these, then the FabriMural display should be your top choice.
When your company has the time, a labor crew, and larger budgets for trade shows, modular displays are the way to go for high-impact displays.

It could be from wear-and-tear, untrained staff or labor, shipping, storage, etc. Most displays, however, don’t have great warranties or repair policies. The FabriMural has one of the best. Because it is manufactured by Nomadic, it has their Lifetime “No Questions Asked” Warranty. If you know your staff/shipping is rough on your displays, the warranty for this display will save you a lot of money in repairs and replacements.
