About a week ago, I conducted two webinars on Exhibit Design Search, called EDS: Tips, Tricks, and Techniques. The feedback was extremely positive, especially the section where we compared the Sacagawea, Magellan, Perfect 10, and Visionary Designs hybrid display systems.
Well, I’d like to think I’m smart enough to take that as a hint. So, I’ll share a written version of the hybrid display comparison. It’s actually fairly straight-forward (and it makes a lot of sense). Please understand that these distinctions are broad-based, and there are always exceptions.
In order, from the lowest to the highest starting prices . . . .
Sacagawea is the entry level portable hybrid line for Classic Exhibits. Introduced about a year ago, it is our most successful product launch. The reasons are obvious: three attractive design series, compact and versatile displays, and terrific price points.
Bottom Line: Least expensive, mostly straight extrusions, primarily knob assembly, medium-large graphics.
Magellan Hybrid designs vary from straight-forward to complex. Anyone who loves curves, loves Magellan because the kits are all about curved metal and large tension fabric graphics. The most popular have been the Miracle and MOR, which not surprisingly are also the most affordable.
Bottom Line: Inexpensive, mostly curved extrusions, primarily knob assembly, large graphics.
There is nothing on the market remotely close to the Perfect 10 and Perfect 20. It defines sexy for a portable hybrid display. It assembles without tools and comes in a mind-boggling assortment of color and shape options, all included in the standard price. The P10 is protected by multiple design and utility patents.
Bottom Line: Competitively priced, mostly curved extrusions, all knob assembly, large graphics, more options.
With Visionary Designs, anything is possible – portable, modular, custom, and custom-hybrid designs. As the saying goes, “form follows function,” and the amorphous design capabilities of Visionary Designs allows you to create simple, complex, large, or small displays.
Bottom Line: Extensive extrusion options, hex key assembly, small, medium, and large graphics (including SEG), unlimited designs, inlines, islands, and table tops.
