As an individual element, 2D Forms can be customized using colored fabrics, projection mapping, lighting systems, or by incorporating dye-sublimation printing. 2D Forms also make perfect components for a larger stage set design – allowing for step-and-repeat designs, a combination of shapes and sizes, or by pairing it with other stage elements such as Borderless Projection Screens, and Full Moons.

With such a diverse array of event design options, 2D forms are ideal solutions for everything from private events and corporate stage designs to custom trade show booths and live brand activations.

Each of the custom fabricated shapes uses a thick-walled 2” aluminum frame, that is covered in a pillowcase-style stretch fabric skin; creating a design that is wrinkle-free, easy to set up, and securely mounted.

How Can You Use 2D Forms?

Whether it’s being used for a product launch, a temporary wall, or a trade show exhibit, 2D Forms can provide a reusable event backdrop that can be reconfigured or re-skinned, to refresh each event’s design time and again.

  • Custom Stage Backdrops
  • Theatre Backdrops
  • Room / Space Divider
  • Temporary Event Wall
  • Brand Activation
  • Corporate Stage Design
  • Live Show Stage Design
  • Trade Show Booth

2D Forms, like all of our stretch fabric designs, can be used as a projection surface or can use simple lighting to create brilliant, dynamic effects.

Whatever the intention, 2D Forms are an easy-to-install customizable product that can be used and re-used for all of your booth and stage design needs, including but not limited to: stages, trade shows, press conferences, exhibits, conferences, expositions, talk shows, presentations, community events and more.

Fabric

You can select from 2 stretch fabric types to best suit your needs:

  • Our IFR Stretch Fabric with a light blocking liner is a pillowcase skin that is optimized to create a bright front projection surface with a 1.02 Gain Value. It is also the ideal skin option for vivid dye sublimation printing on one or both sides.
  • Our single layer IFR Heavyweight Stretch Fabric pillowcase skin is optimized to create a cost-effective 2D form coverage solution

Our stretch fabric, otherwise known as tension fabric, is inherently flame retardant (IFR) and is engineered for durability, safety, and high-performance stretch. The material is equipped with a quick zipper installation feature, which easily guides the fabric into the correct place. The fabric is 90% polyester and 10% spandex, making the application of this fabric easy. We use our specially-calculated stretch ratios to ensure your 2D Form skin is magnificently wrinkle-free when installed. The end result is a perfectly upright frame with a flawless fabric skin.

Printing

Our design team is prepared to turn your art files into a life-size printed work of art. Our graphic design team has been working with stretch fabric and dye sublimation printing for over a decade. Over the years, we’ve perfected our patterns and stretch ratios to ensure your artwork comes out looking flawless, no matter the shape or size 2D Form you choose to print on.

Need assistance with your art files? The team here is here to help with any graphic design help you may need.

Prior to printing your 2D Form stretch fabric, we will require your approval to ensure accuracy and consistency. Your Stretch Shapes Relationship Manager will provide you with an art proof that will showcase your art on the 2D Form you’re interested in.

Before sending art files, please review our graphic requirements and be sure to ask your Relationship Manager about artwork approval fees. Our state-of-the-art dye sublimation printers print at 150 dpi, which is extremely high for dye-sub printing on stretch fabric. The result is a photo-realistic print for your 2D Form scrim.

Pantone color matching is available upon request.

Frames, Fabrication, and Sizing

When it comes to frame construction, the event industry has been long overdue for an upgrade. Many of the basic frames consist of button-stop joints that yield a product that sways and is typically used once before retiring to the landfill. We strive to reduce unnecessary waste, so we’ve revolutionized the run-of-the-mill frame to create a custom-fabricated, high-quality frame that is stout in its construction and can stand the test of time. Rather than throwing this frame into the landfill, it can be reskinned and re-used without fail.

Our frames are made with robust 2” anodized aluminum tube with a 1/8” thick aluminum wall. Due to the thick walls and girthy frame, your 2D Form will remain true to form. Rather than using button-stop joints, our frames bolt together using a flush mount machine grade threaded insert. The bolts are screwed into the frame, fitting flush against the frame, and firmly securing each piece in place. For additional support, set screws are fabricated to the foot pins of 2D Forms taller than 12’ or with square footage over 200 ft. To tighten the set screw, use the hex key supplied with your order.

And with every 2D Form order, appropriately sized baseplates are also included.
