What Are Silicone Edge Graphics?SEG stands for silicone edge graphics. You might have seen this before when looking at things, such as fabric banners and fabric pop up stands for events and exhibitions. But what actually are they?
Silicone edge graphics use a very high-resolution dye sublimation printed graphic on fabric that is finished with a silicone strip edge or gasket sewn around the edges. This silicone strip edge is then inserted into the framework of the pop up stand. This results in a frameless appearance that displays a taunt graphic from edge to edge in the frame.
How Does SEG Work?SEG graphics are different because of the silicone edge that is sewn directly into the edges of the fabric used. The framework that comes with SEG fabric exhibitions stands have specific grooves to act as a channel for this silicone.
When you attach the graphic to the frame, the silicone is pushed into this groove to create a taut, clean and seamless graphic that stretches completely over the framework.
What Are the Benefits of SEG?Seamless Finish
The finish that SEG stands achieve is seamless. This is a fabric alternative for traditional hardboard graphic stands, creating a high-quality, vivid-resolution graphic without seams or borders.
Printed onto fabric for these SEG displays, dye sublimation is used to achieve photo-quality images and printing.
Quick & Easy Setup
Because of the way silicone edge graphics are created, the setup process couldn’t be easier. We take you through the process step by step at the end of this blog.
Easy to Transport
With SEG, you get the maximum impact for a pop up stand with the ease of a lightweight frame to transport and easy to fold and pack fabric graphics.
Once you’ve bought the framework, you can change the graphics incredibly easily meaning all you have to do for a brand-new look is design a new fabric graphic, which will fit seamlessly onto the frame you already have.
Fabric is the perfect choice for media walls or any backdrops especially if it is being used for photography or filming.
Less Visible Frame
The silicon edge means you see more of the seamless graphic and less frame.
