I intend to get some kind of display case/frame for my 2D pre production pieces next year but I am not quite sure how best to display them, any opinions on the following:

Framed

Displaying proofs.. Pbucket

Acrylic case for each piece seperately:

Displaying proofs.. 01-swvint-GPR-2

Custom Acrylic case holding 2 or more pieces

Displaying proofs.. 01-swvint-DBL-2






At the moment I am thinking either the single cases or some kind of custom case for 2 pieces side by side, I do however like the look of framed proofs I just don't have anywhere to hang them!

What do you guys think ?

I like the acrylic cases joe, the frames look great too but need to be hung.

I agree Del, a framed display would be great but then where am I going to put them without a collecting room, and all rooms here have windows that are open daily so sunlight will be a factor!

I definitely think either separate acrylic cases or some kind of custom job would look pretty good, and they double up as protective cases when being stored.

Can't wait till 2010 to update you all with what I have and what I finally decided!

(Jimmy - I WISH I had wall space of my own LOL :opps: - I don't think anything I have would fit in your display room, its definitely way cooler than anything I have Wink )

I think both ideas work well but it all boils down to space i guess.

I framed my Mecanno Luc Bepsin cardback (its almost proof condition lol) and im happy with the result Smile

Are you gonna go with Oscar for the custom case Joe? (If you chose that option)

I don't like the custom cases for 2D, it looks like it is missing something- like a bubble and a figure Laughing I know you don't have space on a wall for picture frames but I remember Bryan using a comic book case thing for his cardbacks. You could then use stands that they use for displaying plates to put them on a shelf. I'll take a picture of what I am talking about when I find them.

I never knew you had all these Joe. They impress the hell out of me. cyclops

I'm puzzled about you getting this on a £20 budget though. :scratch:

Oh they aren't mine, I just put the images up to show the different ways I had seen proofs displayed lol!

I only have 2 2D pieces and both feature a robot :cool laugh:
