RAL Display has been supplying popup stands since they first appeared on the market over 25 years ago. Over the years we've developed a reputation for quality and reliability from the 1000s of customers who have chosen us as their stand supplier. We offer a varied range of pop ups to suit a variety of requirements including stand-alone packages or larger connected popup stands for tradeshow events. Our printing is performed in-house using the latest HP printers and lamination technologies.
We aim to produce and ship all popup stands within five working days. Contact us on 0116 2554640 to discuss urgent, bulk and custom requirements. If you have any questions then please contact our sales or design team or see our FAQ section below.
Popup Stand Varieties
We've arranged our stand packages into the traditional frame sizes such as the popular 3x2, 3x3 and 3x4 options. There's often confusion with the frame references as they are frequently thought of as the metres covered by the display. However the 3x3, for instance refers to the quads which the popup frame creates once it's setup, so 3 up and 3 across. The traditional stand packages are then split into curved and straight frame varieties for popup stands covered in graphics, Velcro friendly loop nylon fabric or a combination of both.
Our popup displays are also available with integrated TVs for an eyecatching audio visual experience. Choose to incorporate a lightweight flatscreen TV directly with a frame mounted bracket (up to 5kg) or opt for the heavy duty floor standing TV stand for screens between 32 and 50". iPads can also be integrated directly onto the frames using the standard frame bracket and a special iPad housing to create a fantastic interactive experience.
We have also created popup exhibition trade show packages based on the normal stand areas such as the 2x2, 2x3, 3x3, 2x4 and 2x6 metre exhibition spaces. Our CAD team have joined standard frames using carefully calculated bridging panels to achieve an accurate layout. Choose from both L-shape and U-shape popup packages.
Our lightweight popup display option is the hopup stand. Unlike the standard polyester based prints on the regular popups, the hopup is supplied with a one-piece fabric graphic which is pre-fitted by Velcro to the expanding framework. When the framework is pulled open, the graphic becomes taught and flat providing a portable, easy to setup display option.
Our standard popup kits include spotlights and a case covered into a graphic counter (optional for L and U shape packages). However, we also offer additional portable counters and brochure stands, popup towers and pullup banner stands to accessorise and enhance an exhibition.

Q: Can you produce popup graphics for me if I didn't buy the original system from you?
A: Yes, we are familiar with a range of different popup systems and can produce graphics for most frame varieties. If you are unable to establish your popup brand then we kindly ask for a selection of photos including a picture of the frame, magnetic bars and the top hanger at the rear of the graphics. Often the instruction sheets will provide clues as to the popup type. In some instances where the popup manufacturer is no longer trading we recommend sending the popup to us so we can remove the existing hangers at the back of the graphics for reuse on the new graphics.
Q: Can I replace individual popup panels?
A: If RAL Display produced the original graphics then individual popup panels can be replaced. If the graphics are old or/and have been exposed to light over a long period of time then there may be an element of colour fade to account for when slotting in a new graphic. If your graphics have been produced by a different supplier then it is likely they have used a different paper and printer which will seldom match our print output.
Q: I'm travelling abroad and I need a lightweight popup style product?
A: We provide a lightweight popup-style graphic system called the hopup stand which has a similar standard range to the standard straight popups packages. The graphics are printed on a polyester material and pre-attached to the frame with Velcro so setup is as simple as merely expanding out the concertina framework.
Q: Can I clad the back of a popup with graphics?
A: Yes, any of our popup frames will accept rear graphics. If you speak to our sales team they will advise how many additional magnetic bars you will need and what sizes to setup the artwork. Straight frames have identical graphic sizes front and back but curved systems require wider panels at the rear.
Q: What happens if I lose a hardware component?
A: We can supply replacements for any lost or damaged hardware components including magnetic bars, spotlights, frame and bar bags, folding table tops and wheeled transit cases. Please contact our sales team for costs and lead-times.
Q: Can a damaged frame scissor section be replaced?
A: Yes, if you purchased the original frame from us we can replace the broken section. We would need to know whether it's a vertical or horizontal scissor section and whether you would like us to make the repair or if you would like us to send you the parts so you can do it yourself. Frame nodes and magnetic locking arms can also be replaced. All frame repairs are simple to do and require just a Phillips screwdriver.
Q: How quickly does it take to setup a popup system and is it a one person job?
A: The standard curved and straight frame packages take around 10-15 minutes for one experienced person to set up. The larger L-shape and U-shape stands can take 25-30 minutes depending on size. We recommend having a trial setup before you go to your show so you become familiar with the procedure. Please refer to the popup setup instructions and the video below to ensure you're comfortable with the procedure.
