One Planet Recycled Fabric Graphics
We are excited and proud to be able to offer the new One Planet Fabric TM Recycled Fabric Graphic line! These graphics are all 100% manufactured and printed within the US and help significantly to make a dent in the massive single-use plastic issue that the entire world is currently facing. With this new style of fabric, we will be able to achieve the same or better quality that you have come to expect from our products here at American Image Displays. However, the popular vote is that this new fabric is even better looking and feeling. The new material will provide the same wrinkle-forgiving aspects as the alternative stretch fabrics, but it will also be making a significantly positive effect on the environment!
It can be hard enough to figure out your niche, your audience, your next move to target the next trending concept, and have all of that ready for your next show to beat out your competitors; there is hardly any time to think about your carbon footprint. Regardless of your waste-free status as a company, this product is an easy, impactful choice and one that we are personally excited to offer!
Instead of just swooning over this great product, let's consider some numbers. There are about 31,000 Trade Shows happening around the world each year. Each show can vary from 25-100+ exhibitors, but let's imagine that they each have the minimal exhibitor count of just 25; that's still 775,000 exhibitors every year.
If each exhibitor had only a 10x10 and a minimalist setup with each graphic made from the new One Planet fabric, that change alone would reduce single-use bottle-type plastics in the world by about 240 million bottles worth every year. Remember, that's all while considering minimal numbers. Let's break that down even more!
◾ One backwall Inline and tablethrow would consume around 265 bottles in production, enough to overfill a large garbage bag!
◾ One backwall Inline, tablethrow, hanging sign, and banner stand would consume around 700 bottles in production, enough to fill 3 large garbage bags!
◾ Some exhibiting setups for 20x20 all the way to 40x40 layouts have graphic usage that could consume 2,000 bottles or more, enough to fill a truck bed!
One Planet Fabric allows the signage industry to walk away from the use of virgin plastics. The process starts with collecting and cleaning thousands of beverage bottles, which are then cut into tiny flakes. These go through a re-polymerization process to result in recycled chips. Finally, these are transformed into specially engineered yarns that include a unique chemical tracer to certify authenticity. All this process is carefully monitored by third party Global Recycled Standard to certify its compliance with internationally agreed criteria. Using the latest technology at mills in North Carolina, the yarn is knit into fabric. The final step is a wash with a flame retardant solution, which allows use at any hotel or convention center in America. The result is an enhanced fabric, with a deluxe hand feel and unparalleled color consistency. Its exclusive construction allows it to stretch just enough to allow beautiful tension when in use, with a wrinkle-free effect. It is ready to be printed with state-of-the-art dye sublimation technology into large format graphics for events, trade shows, or signage.
One Planet Fabric was specially designed to work with dye sublimation technology to produce superb printed banners, whose widths can create mural-like panels without seams. The surface is finished with a very soft matte texture that is the perfect setting for colors to stand out. Its exclusive knitting pattern allows enough stretch for the fabric to conform to various tension structures, without the need to add lycra fibers. It is inherently wrinkle resistant, so it can be folded for packaging. And it is treated with fire retardants to conform to venue regulations.
Given the lightweight, flexible, and aesthetically pleasing attributes of fabric components, they’re tailor-made for the demands of the trade show and signage world. One Planet takes a step further by allowing brands to take advantage of fabrics while significantly contributing to a sustainable world.
It's awesome -- you get it! One Planet Fabric should be available for nearly all of our products offering tension fabric graphics, but we have put our own One Planet logo everywhere where we can guarantee it's availability. If you'd prefer One Planet -- just ask!
