Eco-Friendly Materials

Falconboard and conVerd Board, our two most commonly used sustainable substrates–are both 100% recyclabe while maintaining superior quality.


Polymershapes is our trusted partner for all things materials. All PVC materials are sent back to Polymershapes to be repurposed. We also send our waste ink to Giant Resource Recovery, where they recycle it responsibly.

Recycling Procedures

We have firm recycling procedures in place, both in pre-production, post-show disposal, and at all branch locations. If items cannot be recycled, we look for other ways to repurpose the material, such as using the old materials for packing and to protect equipment.
