Display Supplies

November 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

I thought I’d talk a little about the materials that you should get to make some basic displays.  We’ll start with what I would consider to be the most indispensible:

  1. Books Easels – To display your books.  They come in wire or acrylic.  I like the wire ones since they fold up and are easier to store.  Either way, just make sure that the size you get fits the size of the books you’ll be displaying.  You can get these from any major library supply store.
  2. Sign Holders – While you could create displays without them, I use these all the time.  If your display area is on a flat surface, rather than in a case, it allows you to create easy signs that stand up on the table top.  They can come in horizontal or vertical.  Again, you can get them from any major library supply store.
  3. Cloths – I often use cloths on the table for displays.  It doesn’t have to be a tablecloth.  You can just go to a fabric store and get a yard or two of fabric.  It’s best to stick with basic, solid colors.  That way, you can reuse the cloths for all different kinds of displays.

There are quite a few more things that you can gather and use, but you can create quite a variety of displays with just these items.
