Pop-up Display Stands

Pop up displays – a big display from the back of your car with no hassle. Fresco has the biggest and best range of options. Which one is right for you?  Portability, versatility, durability, high visibility – whatever your priorities, Fresco has the answer.

Classic pop-up

Curved or straight. Both have rounded ends for an impressive 3D look. Five sizes are available – 3×1, 3×2, 3×3, 3×4 or 3×5. This means 3 box sections high x 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 box sections wide. Full dimensions for each type are given on the product pages. Seamless graphics attach magnetically to a collapsible frame. The classic pop-up has been a firm favourite for 35 years but it is quite bulky though and there are newer alternatives…


About four times more compact than a pop-up when packed, Curvorama is the super-versatile alternative to a classic pop-up. With it’s curved ends Curvorama looks just like a pop-up BUT it can also be used as individual drops – just like a banner stand – OR it can be mounted on the walls of an exhibition booth giving continuous graphics. No other display system can do this. With instant joins and instant curves, Curvorama can be enlarged or adapted to any venue.


The very latest alternative to a classic pop-up. Much lighter and more compact, fabric graphics are also much less likely to get damaged. They are in fact fully washable! The frame of Embrace is just like a normal pop-up – a spidery lattice with magnetic fixings. But instead of semi-rigid drops, attached with magnetic strips, Embrace uses one giant fabric print. This gives a vibrant, drum-tight, fabric display just like you will see in up-market retail environments.


Formulate is quite a radical departure from the classic pop-up. It has some very strong advantages as a backdrop including lightness, compactness and durability. The frame is simpler than a pop-up and lighter. Imagine a long, strong tent pole with right angle bends in it so that it forms a rectangle. Now think of a giant printed fabric bag that stretches over this frame and zips closed. Simple, double-sided, seamless, very effective. Packs into a small bag.

L-shaped pop-up

Just a big, straight classic pop-up with a corner in it. It’s that simple really. Why a corner? Pop-ups are often used in exhibition booths and can eat up quite a bit of valuable floor space when they stand in a corner. An L-shaped pop-up solves this problem. Since it can, like all pop-ups, carry graphics on both sides you can also use an L-shaped pop-up to make a room within a room.

Pop-up bundle

A Classic pop-up at a special price with a wheeled carry case that converts to a very useful counter. Bargain. This is the most popular pop-up – an ideal, all-in-one exhibition kit.

Pop-up Counta

More of an add-on than an alternative to a classic pop-up, the Counta is just like a small pop-up with a top on it and shelves in the back.

Pop-up tower

A pop-up but without the middle drops really. Pop-up towers can be an eye-catching alternative to the all-too-familiar classic pop-up shape. The classic pop-up is sometimes a victim of it’s own success. At an exhibition, there can be so many pop-ups and banner stands that it is only something different that get’s the attention it deserves.
