Crankworx 2016 in Whistler B.C.

Crankworx Custom Bike Booths

Crankworx has been an annual tradition for LPTent since the company started in North America. With the majority of our staff previously involved in the bike industry or involved in riding on a regular basis we are always innovating ways to customize our pop up canopies and custom event gear to fit this industry.

Shimano, Scott Bikes, YT Industries, Kranked, Pinkbike and many others in the bike industry at crankworx rely on us to help put together awesome set ups for these events that will exhibit their branding and draw in a crowd.

10x10 bike rack popup tent

As shown above is one of our inventions, the integrated bike rack that attaches and detaches to the frame itself, this makes for a great use of space in your booth especially when you have a large amount of bikes to exhibit. It also packs down small with your pop up tent.

10x20 pop up canopy custom tentcustom printed pop up canopy tent

The majority of crankworx attendees appreciate high quality products and are at the event to see the latest technology and innovations in bikes, and the exhibitors appreciate the same high quality when it comes to their booths. All the pop up tents we provided last year were our virgin aluminum with fibreglass connections giving you a step ahead in strength and weight compared to steel frames with plastic connections. This difference makes the frame able to withstand up to 95km winds when properly tied down and is most likely why these companies still have their pop up tents a year later without any issue in needing new frames or parts for this year.

All aluminum frames also have a 2-5 year service warranty.

If you would like more info on our pop up tents you can find all models listed on our home page HERE, or if you have any questions you can contact our knowledgable staff HERE.

Is your custom canopy set up ready for 2016?

With the amount of brands competing for visibility at events your custom canopy is a focal point of your brand to make you stand out, draw in a crowd as well as be memorable to the attendees of your event.

There are also a variety of benefits with inflatables. An entire booth can be packed and fit into a carrying bag that fits in the trunk of a car or checked as luggage on a flight. It is easy to set up and take down with one or two people as you just lay the airtent frame out, attach the top and connect the pump, fill and close the valve. After that the structure requires no maintenance.

Custom Canopy Star Tents

Star tents are an underused custom canopy that has a large surface that is well seen for branding and graphics. As they are only available in large sizes (27′ & 36′) star tents are designed for events or festivals where you have a large space available.

These models are easy to set up with one to two people, as the only process required for set up is layout out the stakes, attaching the top canvas and erecting the pole to the required height to make the top canvas tight and proper looking.

Custom Canopy Full Digital Prints

As shown in the image above, the top canvas and walls are fully printed to make their pop up look like a house to promote their heating system at trade shows.

Poly

10×10 Pop Up Canopy w/ Poly Top

 

Our polyester is a flexible and resistant Technitex 300g/sqm blend. It is composed of nylon polyester with a PVC coating on the outside making it completely waterproof. This material meets US/NFPA-701 and CAN/ULC-S109 fire rating standards for anywhere requiring this info and it is featured on a tag on the material.

Read Full Article

As seen in the photo above, the poly material gives a matte finish look and for custom print on the canopy or walls you have options of screen print for 1-3 colour logos or for complicated or images involving a variety of colours/gradients dye sublimation is available on white material involving either a full or partial sublimation.

PVC

popup canopy, pop up, canopy tent,

Inflatable Airtent 10×10 w/ PVC Top

Our PVC is flexible, resistant and meets US/NFPA-701 and CAN/ULC-S109 fire rating standards. It has an ultra violet treatment which ensures durability and makes it resistant to mold, salt damage or fading from sunlight. It is also 100% recyclable.

For the popup canopy PVC look, as it is more of a plastic material it gives off a bit of a shine in the sun like seen in the inflatable Airtent photo above. Printing on the PVC can be done with screen print on a coloured  fabric like the poly, or for complex images or ones featuring gradients or a variety of colours digital printing is used on white in a full or partial print.

When it comes to facing any weather the PVC is the way to go. As it is waterproof and fade proof it can survive winter to tropical climates and with its resistance to mold it is more likely to last years and still look fresh.

If you are interested in any more info on our materials or would like a quote on how much your logo would cost for print contact our staff HERE and someone will be happy to answer your questions.

Star Tent Set Up by LPTent

Featured in the video above is one of our demo star tent models being set up showing  how easy it is even compared to a pop up tent or inflatable of the same size. If you were wondering how the feet get evenly spaced out this video answers that question. Each canopy comes with a kit where you place the centre pole and lay out each foot in triangles evenly spacing out the stakes. Then the top is laid out and the centre pole put together and slide under and put in place.

This tent also gives you a great surface for graphic print with 6 open surfaces you can logo and the possibility of full digital print or full dye sublimation making it a blank canvas to get creative with. The top canvas is available in a Polyester or PVC material depending on the look and climate you will be in.

Inflatable Chair, Stool, Arm Chair and Sofa

Moving into 2016 we have new models of furniture released also, the arm chair and sofa models in the photo above are new and ready to get custom branding for events indoors and out.

For indoor use staking or weighing down the furniture is not necessary, but if you are looking to use your inflatables outdoors we make all models with straps that can be connected to weights or stakes so these inflatables can be used even in windy outdoor conditions for events.

With the ability to custom design any of these models with print, connect multiple canopies and add awnings you can create a stunning booth for trade shows or out door events at a relatively low cost and super easy to transport or ship as all these models deflate and package small enough to fit into the trunk of a car or checked as luggage on a flight.

Inflatable Communication-Closed System vs Continuous Air

Inflatable Communication (Airtents/Spider Tents, Arches, Totems and Furniture)

10×10 Inflatable Air Tent

If you have been to an event lately you have most likely noticed the growing popularity of inflatable communication products, but not all inflatables are the same. Some inflatable air tents, arches, totems, furniture or any other inflatable communication need continuous air flow to stay inflated, while some are sealed systems.

All of LPTents inflatable communication products are self contained systems, meaning you use a pump to fill the product, seal it and it is set until deflated.

Read Full Article

This style of inflatable has a variety of benefits. First it does not need continuous electricity to stay inflated, which is convenient for use anywhere where continuous electricity is not available. Continuous air systems are also liable to collapse due to power complications or being exposed to high wind conditions that the systems blower can not combat against.

inflatable communication, inflatable air arch, inflatable arch, archway, race arch,

20′ Single 5 Sided Arch

Being a company that focuses on innovation and making the highest quality inflatable products we have focused and added features to our closed system inflatable air products to make them the best on the market.

All of our inflatable communication items feature an inner tube, similar to a bicycle tire that contains the air sealed underneath the PVC outer layer of the inflatable. Usually one of the benefits of continuous air is that even if there is a hole in the product the inflatable stays upright as it is constantly blowing air through. But with this inner tube feature the closed air system is resistant to holes and wear to the outer layer of the product.

The final benefits of closed air systems are the ease of set up, most of our inflatable products are fully inflated in approximately 15 minutes and then you are done, you just need to secure the structure and you are ready for your event, and especially if you are setting up an area for interactions and networking you do not have to deal with the noise of a blower being on the whole time at your booth.

Custom Event Tent Printing Techniques

A custom event tent is a great way to market your brand at events. A lot of companies go with a basic one or two colour logo to meet brand guidelines but a lot of people don’t know the possibilities with the latest innovation in print on both the Poly and PVC canvas material.

Screen Printing

Custom screen printing pop up tent

Screen printing at the LPTent Factory

The first printing option for your custom event tent is screen printing. This process involves setting up a screen and passing ink across the logo or graphic leaving it imprinted on the tent canvas.

This process can be performed on any colour of material and is very durable and long lasting. Usually this is a good option if your logo is a one or two colour design as three or more colours can be expensive for screen set up.

One colour screen print on blue PVC

Sublimation

Sublimation is a process done on our polyester canvas material. It involves transferring an image dying it permanently onto the tent top, which makes the amount of colours unlimited so it is good for complex images involving shading and multiple colours.

Sublimation can only be done on white polyester, meaning a fully sublimated pop up tent will be white on the inside, or a partial sublimated canopy will be white with logos/graphics.

10×10 and 20×20 Inflatable Airtents with Full Sublimation.

Digital Print

Digital Print is a similar option to sublimation, but done on the PVC material of canopy tent top. It also has unlimited colours and graphics and prints on the PVC material similar to how a desktop printer works but at a much larger scale.

Full Digital Print on a 10×10 pop up tent

Full digital print has a great impression to really make your custom event tent stand out from the crowd, it lets you get creative and make something unique taking full advantage of the printing space available.

Another great thing about digital print is it is available on inflatable structures such as inflatable arches, totems, cubes or anything made of PVC.

Temporary Custom Event Tent Print Options:

Vinyl decals cut on plotter applied to PVC and can either be used permanent or temporary.

Phototex

Phototex is an option that is becoming more popular for applying graphics on our event tents. It is a product that is a reusable sticker on PVC so it is great for putting sponsors logos on your canopy and change them as sponsors change making it so you don’t have to print a new top every year or when sponsors or logos change.
