Face Shields for COVID-19

A Pivot to Help with COVID-19

We are incredibly proud of the Fusion Team and their ability to pivot during these challenging times with COVID-19. The Fusion Event Team was in the middle of installing the New York City Half Marathon when they were told to pull the project due to the Coronavirus. Shortly after, the entire nation was gripped by the news of how quickly this was spreading and the immediate reaction of closing businesses to create social distancing.

After coming up with a plan to keep employees safe, the Fusion Team went to work trying to figure out a way to help with the pandemic and to keep their staff employed. Several ideas were discussed over a weekend and in one day prototypes were built and shipped to potential customers. Within 2 days those prototypes turned into one of the biggest pivots Fusion Imaging has ever done. Overnight, we became a Face Shield manufacturer.

To date, Fusion has sold almost 2 million face shields! One of the best things to come from this was the day we received photos from doctors in NYC (the same place we were installing an event just weeks earlier) wearing face shields we had produced. We’re proud to say that we became part of a solution to help those in need.

This just goes to show that talent and hard work pay off. When faced with the choice to hunker down and let things blow over or get up and figure something out…we’re proud to say we fought back and we’re still continuing that fight each day as we help the world get back to “normal.”

Inside Sales Carpet Graphics

Pathways To a Successful Event

Anyone who has ever organized or been to an event knows the importance of wayfinding. What better way to direct attendees than laying down the path directly at their feet? Inside Sales saw that as the clear choice, and it looked great! They used one path to direct guests to the hotel registration while the other went to conference registration. The two paths, made of adhesive floor graphics, spanned across two separate floors traveling over 100 feet. 

Using direct paths like this is a great way to maintain traffic control and limit confusion for guests. Of course, you need more than just wayfinding for a successful event, and Inside Sales knows it! They did a great job of making the hotel space theirs by utilizing column wraps, adhesive wall prints, Formz elements, and much more.

Falcon Board

A Touch of Texture

Elements with a textured look can have a big impact on your displays, something eye-catching to add character to your booth or event. That’s where products like our falcon board come in handy. This rigid material still gives you a board-like look, even though it’s extremely lightweight. We have constructed many different elements out of this product from tradeshow booths to signs and wayfinding. We are even using it on our Exhibitor Booth this year!


At CES by AgencyEA, we used falcon board to construct an outdoorsy, rustic feel for the event. The wayfinding at this event looks like it is built out of wood, however, it’s actually just printed falcon board. The directional arch is a mix between falcon board and Formz frames wrapped in tension fabric with a stone pattern. It is a very creative way to utilize our capabilities to establish the tone you are looking for at an event.

How Much Should Your Next Trade Show Booth Cost?

“How much does a trade show booth cost?”


That’s a great question, but one that comes with as many answers as there are trade show booth suppliers.  Industry standards report that a buyer can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $100 to $150 per square foot for a custom, 20’ by 20’ island booth. Our experience has shown that, on average, you’re likely to spend between $45 to $60 per square foot for smaller booth spaces in the range of 10’ by 10’ or 10’ by 20’.

If you are asking this question, though, it likely means that you’re new to the trade show environment.  In this case, your next question you should be, “Who can help me navigate this new adventure so that I may have the best experience?”

When purchasing a smaller-scale trade show booth, the temptation is often to use an “off-the-shelf” internet vendor to keep costs down. The drawback to this approach is that you aren’t able to consult with a real person on the important questions—questions that will make all the difference in your overall experience.  Remember, the cost of your booth is just one part of the total expense.  You must also calculate travel and lodging, the sponsorship or booth space rental, shipping, drayage (shipping of your booth once it gets to the venue), potential union labor, electrical, carpeting, and the list goes on.


A good distributor of trade show booths can help you realize all of the costs associated with exhibiting.  They can ask the questions that are most important to customizing your booth to fit your specific needs like:

  1. Do you plan to set this up by yourself? How many people will be setting it up, or will you need hired help?
  2. Do you have products to display and, if so, what is the best way to get your customers to interact with those products?
  3. Do you need extra storage space inside your booth?
  4. How do you want your customers to interact with your staff?
  5. Are you planning to use technology (e.g. TV, iPad/tablet)? How important is an internet connection in accomplishing your goals?
  6. How often will you use the display?
  7. How must the display be shipped? Does it need to fit into the backseat of a car?

You may be surprised that a custom booth doesn’t need to be expensive. As mentioned before, our experience shows that you can likely meet your needs with a custom booth priced between $50 to $60 per square foot. That’s only slightly more than buying a stock set-up off a standard website; however, the benefit of building something specific to your needs ensures that you will stand apart from those around you and be set up specifically to meet your unique goals.  Most distributors, through their build process, will do an excellent job of supplying design feedback and are knowledgeable about what works for the greatest impact in a small display space.



A Note to Trade Show Distributors

The true value of your work is found in what makes you different. Yes, it’s important to have cool stuff for your customers to choose from, but in the end, it’s the experience you bring to the table that can make the biggest difference for first-time buyers.

Partnering with a manufacturer who can support your efforts to provide custom designs should be a critical component of your growth strategy.  As important as a distributor is to the end customer, a manufacturing partner who knows how to say “yes!” and can roll up their sleeves is just as important.

Hamilton New Nation Library Exhibit

The New Nation Library Exhibit

Some of the most interesting jobs we do are museum-type exhibits. Our most recent example of such is the New Nation Library exhibit. The New Nation Exhibit at the state capitol contains fascinating accounts of the stories kept by Utahns. The exhibit was created on the premise that Utahns are great at documenting their lives. They have compiled some incredible stories and works of art to highlight some impressive Utahn stories. The exhibit includes captivating works of art such as photo collages, family history sculptures, and even Hmong story cloths. 

The exhibit draws you in to make you feel as though you are watching the history depicted unfold in front of your eyes. One example of the exhibit is a story of Motoki Yatabe and Mitsue Ozeki. The two fell in love in the Topaz internment camp in the 1940’s. Motoki was recruited by the army a short time after as a translator but he never forgot Mitsue. He would continually write her to tell her how much he missed her. The story of Motoki Yatabe and Mitsue Ozeki give you a powerful glimpse into the life and hardships of Japanese-Americans at that time. 

Between heart-wrenching stories of separated lovers and stories about the Hmong people sewing story cloths to make a living for their families, there is plenty of captivating material at the exhibit. If you can make it to the exhibit you should, this is something you do not want to miss out on. If you can’t we have included a gallery for you to see the work we did and get a glimpse of the exhibit.

Fusion’s Contribution

For this exhibit, ThomasArts asked us to provide the printed material. At first, the plan was to go with a gatorboard solution for all of the freestanding materials. However, we thought that wouldn’t be the best solution for a couple reasons. First off, it’s a high traffic area so it is already at risk for getting bumped and toppled. With that in mind, also with the fact that schools are constantly taking field trips to the capitol, we recommended a fabric solution instead. We ended up wrapping fabric around SEG type frames. This way you can’t really break the freestanding elements, it’s easy to clean, and it was a cost-effective solution.
