Hello! Chris here. I’m one of instantprint’s Personal Artworkers, and I’d like to share a quick size guide with you to help you make your design print ready.


The table below is basked on printing a portrait document at 300dpi (dots per inch) – meaning it’ll print in really high quality. You can use these measurements to set up your document in your preferred design software program based on what size product you want.

We name our exhibition stand sizes in numbers like this because of the amount of panels in each one. All of our stands are split into 3 sections (2 are not fully visible) and the middle section is split depending on how big the stand is.


As exhibition stands are a lot bigger than our other products, we need the resolution to be set at 150dpi.
 

 

All of our exhibition stands come with a podium. This is to store your stand whilst you’re not using it and as a handy table for your event. The podium graphic is the same size for all of stand sizes.
