SEG Backlit Trade Show Displays: Lightbox Frames for Events

Starting at: $2,299

A backlit silicone edge graphic (SEG) is a fabric display illuminated by LED lights inside the aluminum frame. Also known as an SEG lightbox, this type of backlit trade show display makes your brand's colors, graphics, and messaging brighter and bolder — adding that touch of professionalism needed to stand out on the show floor.

SEG is the industry standard for trade shows and indoor activations, and is frequently used in retail environments.

TentCraft sells complete SEG lightbox systems — fabric displays and durable frames. Our frames are made of durable aluminum extrusion and feature top and bottom LED lighting. Single- and double-sided printing is available.

If you own existing lightbox frames, we can also custom print, cut, and fabricate graphic displays to fit that hardware.

Custom SEG Lightbox Sizes

At TentCraft, we're passionate about custom projects, but we also understand practical size limitations for SEG frames.

For optimal results, we recommend that your SEG frame does not exceed 30x10 in size. In case you're planning a large activation, it's advisable to consult with one of our event experts. They can assist you in finding the ideal setup that ensures a great appearance and effortless installation and teardown.

How to Install Your SEG Lightbox

Setting up your SEG tension fabric display can be tricky at first but, like everything in life, it gets easier with practice.

Use the video to follow along step-by-step, or download a PDF with setup instructions from the link below.

Here are a few tips to help with your installation:

  • 1. Fold in stitched edges. You want the stitches completely hidden in the frame channel when installing your display.

  • 2. Start with the corners. And then make your way to the center of each side.

  • 3. Don't stretch the silicone. If installed correctly, your silicone beading shouldn't stretch much. If it does, it could damage your display over time.

  • 4. Don't install one side at a time. It takes a couple of extra minutes to start with all four corners and then move to the center of each side. Once those are installed, you can push the rest of the display into the channel.

How to Measure Existing SEG Frames

If you already own SEG frames, TentCraft can custom print, cut, and fabricate new fabric graphic displays that snugly fit your hardware. It is important, however, to measure your frame accurately.

There are two main steps in measuring your frame: 1) the length and height of your frame, and 2) the size of the frame channel.

Length & Height

To ensure a perfect fit, you (and a partner to hold the other end of the measuring tape!) need to measure from the outside of the frame to the opposite side of the frame — both horizontal and vertical.

Measure the length to the nearest 1/16th of an inch for a precise cut, and report those measurements to your sales representative.

Frame Channel

You also need to measure the frame channel — the gap around the perimeter of the frame where the silicone beading is installed because thickness varies manufacturer by manufacturer.

Measure the gap in millimeters. If you can, take a photo of the tape measurer over the gap.

We can't stress this enough: Make sure to double-check — even triple-check! — your measurements to guarantee your new fabric display fits snugly in your frame.
