Whenever people visit places like museums or art galleries they are expecting to be entertained, or, at the very least, informed by the event they are attending. Obviously, the actual content of the exhibition plays the major part in delivering that, but there are other aspects to consider. In a museum it is paramount that the quality of display stands is of the highest quality.

It needs to offer carefully considered communication along with inspirational design, in order to enhance the visitor experience to these places. It needs to be creative and of engaging content, blended with a design that is visually stimulating. Here are some of the considerations to take in account when creating museum display stands that provide a lasting impression.

Printing services and processes

This is a vital consideration when preparing a museum display area. Both the printing techniques and the materials of museum graphics need to be carefully considered and matched. There are a number of different materials and substrates that can be utilised.

To achieve the desired high-end display you want, consider employing digital wallpaper or different fabrics, acrylics and vinyls – or any combination thereof! Choose the most appropriate and effective printing service – you’ll want all digital printing techniques to be high quality and on materials with proven longevity.

Types of museum display stands and graphics

Information panels – An information panel can be used to display relevant information about a specific subject/object. Interpretation panels offer a more holistic detailing of the subject – all interpretation contains information – but not necessarily so the other way round.

Fixed graphic panels – These panels can be produced in a number of different materials and mounted on a range of substrates.

Internal and external directional / wayfinding signage – These can be provided in a wide variety of formats, finishes and specifications. Wayfinding signage can be used to highlight routes and to guide visitors around the museum display designs and the building in a informative and efficient manner.

Vinyl cut graphics and lettering – These wall decals can be produced with whatever lettering content – or image – that is required, and are typically used to display information in a prominent and engaging fashion.

Printed wallpaper and soft fabric internal wall coverings – Choose the most relevant and appropriate wall coverings for the event or venue.

Temporary display stands, banners and pop-up stands – These portable display vehicles are ideal for museums and other public spaces.
