help! photo display

Post by wiggles on Thu Apr 28, 2011 4:48 pm

i am still "wet behind the ears" on fp. i just started to use a tri fold display board that i bought at walgreens. i have only used it in doors. my question is i need some input as to how to keep the wind from knocking it over when used out doors. i thought i would try to use some sort of device that has a long base (some type of prop)to keep it from being to top heavy with any kind of wind. the problem is i can't think of anything.

thanks in advance

I use an easel & tape my pics to it. It's also a marker board, so I can write prices on it.

I have a 5'x3' hand made and painted A-frame sign with velcro strips were I just interchange pictures according to the festival or event. I'll get a pic soon. I also get good high quality pictures and get them laminated then add velcro for stickage.

Before you make a wooden anything- make sure it will fit (easily) into your car! I made two lovely wooden displays for myuself and my partner to use at events with a full length mirror on the back and big nice frames on the front. No problem if we're taking his miniVan- but in my Corrolla? Forget it!

I bought some plexiglass sheets at Hobby Lobby (the kind they use to make faux stained glass crafts), cut them to the size of my boards and taped them on using long strips of colored duct tape that frame the boards, along all four edges.
They protect my images from smudgy fingers, weather and add weight so they won't blow away. If you needed to make your boards changeable, you could just tape the plexi to the top, making the covering hinged.
I also tape a sturdy triangular piece of tag board to the back for an easel that folds flat for travel.

I was so stoked last night. I had to make a late night drive to the grocery to get some milk for the baby, and what did I see in someone's trash pile? An A-frame sandwich board! Helllll yeahhhhhh!!! It was used as a yard sale sign, so I was out in my driveway for 20 minutes spraying primer on it at 11 o clock at night. Hubby was laughing at me. "Only you", he said. I think this will be great for photos or signage. I am going to use the plexiglass sheets over it like FlashM suggested to protect my photos! Awesome tip, FlashM, thanks!!!!

You're so welcome! Good luck!

Here's something else that might help anyone making a design sample sign-- paint it some shade of beige to brown skin tone so customers will see how the result looks on skin. As you know, many colors look very different on skin than on a white background. I paint my boards in acrylics for durability on beige foam core board and add the liquid bling sparkles with a sparkle-y fabric paint.
