Shell Scheme Graphics Buyers Guide

What is a shell scheme?

Shell Scheme is a term you may well have come across when booking an exhibition space or planning an event, but might have never really known what it meant.

A shell scheme is a booth built by the exhibition organiser, out of modular hardware, to create an enclosed area for you to exhibit. The basic principle is the same whichever show you got to but organisers use slightly different systems so panel sizes may vary a little, something to keep in mind when you order your graphics. Packages vary but you may well have walls, lights, carpet, sockets and your name above the stand, but so does the person next to you and everyone else at the event. So how do you stand out?

You need to decorate your shell scheme with striking graphics that quickly get your message across, make sure you stand out from your competitors and entice visitors onto your stand. Graphics can be the deciding factor in making your show a success.

The simple way is to use graphics to display your product and services on the wall of the booth. However, there a number of ways to do this, each with their own unique features meaning the choice can be difficult.

If you’re flying into a show and taking the graphics with you want something that rolls up for easy transport. If it’s local and you’re delivering other equipment to the stand then rigid panels may be the best option, especially if you intend to use them again. If you need more flexibility, attending lots of shows or you want to display where there is no shell scheme available then a portable display could be the answer.

Shell scheme dimensions

The size of a shell scheme is dependent on the exhibition. Usually shell scheme graphic panels are 2340mm high by 950mm wide. When you have booked your space the venue should provide you with a specification of exact sizes for your shell scheme.

If you need any help with your shell scheme stand after receiving your size specification document, send it over to us and we'll be happy to help you calculate the size and number of panels you will need.

We created this guide, with the hope that it makes your decisions for your shell scheme graphics quick and easy.

How can you make a shell scheme look great?

All our printing is done on top quality HP printers using high-resolution print to give crisp text and great colours. All of our shell scheme graphics are printed using the same high resolution - but the one thing that is different is the base material. In order of price from lowest to highest, these are:

  • Self adhesive vinyl
  • Economy PVC banners
  • Removable wallpaper
  • Premium rollable panels
  • Rigid Foamex

Economy PVC Hanging Banners

We came up with a simple idea for our customers who are on a very tight budget. The graphics are printed on a high-quality PVC banner material.


  • + Low cost
  • + Easy to store and transport
  • + High-resolution print
  • + Easy to hang using Velcro


  • - You don’t end up with a seamless graphic
  • - Less professional than rigid panels

Removable Self Adhesive Wallpaper

Simple and cost-effective, bring your shell scheme graphics to life with this self-adhesive wallpaper fabric material. It is the perfect way to brand a complete shell scheme with seamless displays.

  • + Relatively Economical
  • + High-resolution print


  • - Takes longer to install than other options

Premium Rollable Panels

Rollable panels are the most traditional choice for a shell scheme. The premium panels look more professional than the basic banner material but still have the ease of transport and fitting.


  • + High-resolution print
  • + Easy to store and transport
  • + Easy to hang using Velcro or magnetic tape
  • + Can be reused many times


  • - You don’t end up with a seamless graphics
  • - Don’t lay quite as flat as Foamex rigid panels

Rigid Foamex

Perhaps the most professional finish for a shell scheme, the stunning graphics on the individual panels look like hanging artwork. The panels are printed directly using UV inks for photorealistic images, and hung using Velcro.


  • + High-resolution print photorealistic images
  • + Easy to hang using Velcro or magnetic tape
  • + Rigid panels lay perfectly flat on the wall
  • + Can be reused many times


  • - Harder to transport
  • - More costly

Self Adhesive Vinyl

Sometimes less is more, and a series of simple self-adhesive logos or strap lines can make a great impact. Self-adhesive vinyl is computer cut and supplied on a carrier tape for you to simply squeegee onto the wall. We have hundreds of fonts to choose from and it can be easily designed and ordered using our simple online tool.


  • + Very economical
  • + Quite easy to install
  • + Supplied with squeegee and application fluid
  • + Easy to use online design tool


  • - Limited colours
  • - Takes a bit of care to install
  • - Need to peel it off at the end of the show
  • - Not reusable

Portable Display Systems

Of course, another option is to have a portable stand that you put up inside the shell scheme area. This might seem like a more expensive solution but it has the added advantage of allowing you to use your display at a different venue such as your office or showroom.
