Is there a wrong way of using display boards?

Display BoardsThe Don’ts of using display boards

Don’t do shadowing

If you use a separate board at the top of your display board, mount it just a few centimetres from the back of your display board. A far mounted board may cast a shadow on your display board, making it hard to read.

Don’t use your display board like a cupboard

As much as possible, set up your display board on one side. If there are sides on your board, it will be hard for people to read information as it may be too busy. Remember, you want people to notice your display board and urge them to come to you – not repel them when they realise your display board is too complicated to read at a glance.

Don’t make your display board too tall

Make sure your display board is eye level to the average person. If your board is too high, they won’t be interested to read the information at all. Besides, the farther the text, the smaller they appear making it harder to read.

Your display boards can make or break your event – make sure you use it to your advantage. For all of your display board needs, contact Polystyrene Central.
