    I’m curious what others would suggest for temporary and simple print hanging displays. Does the hanging system seen in Kevin Raber’s videos (screenshot attached) leave claw marks into the paper?

    No, they do not have any texture to leave marks.  These are very cool frames and I have had to put the manufacture of these on hold due to losing all workshop income for the rest of the year.  Is anyone interested in an investment/partnership?

    Here’s what I do. I pulled one of the pictures partway out so you can see how the frame works. It’s just glued and polished Lucite. I got these frames about 35 years ago at KSP in Palo Alto. Gosh, that was a good store.

    They are pretty cool.  Wonder if we could make them today.  Any idea who manufactured them?

    Kevin: That’s unfortunate…

    Jim: Nice. Those look quick to use and update prints regularly.

    Has anyone considered magnetic wall paint and tacking prints up that way?

    Sorry, no. The company was in San Francisco, and it was small.

    Not as elegant, but maybe look at foldover frames?

    Jim, When my parents lived in Palo Alto, I would spend quite a bit of time at Keeble and Shuchat Photography, and I always enjoyed looking at the displays upstairs.  It was quite sad when they closed.  Also, going to Bear Images was a treat and the staff was quite friendly.

    K&S was a great store.  Bear Images was a fun place to visit.  It was a pretty messy place but they always knew where things were.

    It’s not the nice black finish Kevin is using but these look relatively similar https://www.picturehangingsystems.ca/stas-poster-strips

    Stephen, I’m using those poster-strips here and they work well despite being expensive for what you get 🙁

    More recently I’ve found a company here in the UK who does an almost identical product at a much cheaper price. 🙂

    Not sure I understand. Does this mean that you had them specially made for you?

    I had been looking for something like this because framing can be prohibitive for a moderate-sized exhibit.

    Yes,

    I had them made by a carpentry friend.  I was going to manufacture a bunch to sell but then COVID hit.  Without workshops to supplement my income I am watching my dollars. I am always willing to talk to an investment-minded person.  I think these would sell really well.  Email me if interested.
