    Lightbulb construction of display

    Mayby interesting to know is how to construct your own display.

    Especially for younger collectors whom don't have the money to buy them.


    you can leave your ideas here.
    if you've got a workdesign added to it, they can get to work quick.

    simple display in wood and plexi

    buy/make a wood box in the desired size and place on top a plexi glass .

    cost: about 20 for a 60 * 40 * 14 display box

    ive just modified my ikea detolf to give it more shelf space....

    I bought more glass from ikea, its not for the detolf but about half width, for the book shelves, but my way of installing it is ingenius haha not seen anyone done it before, more than likely have but its classy


    Originally i used a plant pot... nice

    then i was thinking of toliet roll tubes..... mmmmm no

    then i got some plastic tubes that recipet rolls from shop tills use... works great

    but the icing on the cake are now in.... its original German items, not cheap unfortunatley but can you guess?

    Pics to come

    How do people display photos?

    currently i have a A4 folder, which has postcard sleeves in, this is ok, but the photos can move about

    Obviously photos come in different sizes, sometimes interesting writing on the back

    i know you can get different sized plastic sheets but that doesnt seem to be the best solution

    for pics I'd use a postcard display with a piece of glass in front. that way you can see them all the time an,d they still stay save from stains. they're hard to find but easy to make if you know how to weld. other manner: wood

    or you could use a stand in plexi glass for displaying medals. works fine for me.

    I do what Stuart suggested for photos.
    Very nice photo albums with the correct material plastic sleeves.
    I have photo albums that have individual plastic sections on good paper (ok for photos to be against). My wife sells scrapbook supplies so she tells me what to get.

    This is also how I display (store) my poilitical leader armbands.
    Each armband is in a 8x10 inch clear acid free clear plastic "folder".
    Then all of them are in a nice leather photo album.
    Takes up very little room, and easy to look through.

    That's an expensive looking album Kevin!!! Great way to store them and you can still look at them without handling. I like this method.

    Thanks Darin,

    I really enjoy P.L. armbands, the craftsmanship is great.
    But then can be pretty offensive looking to non-collectors (much more so than district triangles). So this hidden method is great.

    I have them in a bookshelf with my collecting reference books. No labels, just black leather photoalbums.
    No one is the wiser.
