Setting Up Your Display Case
One of the best ways to display photographs, memorabilia and
other prized possessions is by using a display case. When
properly done, a display case can showcase your collectables for
all to see in an elegant manner. Man has used display cases since
the dawn of time to show off private possessions. Fortunately
today there are hundreds of different styles to choose from.
Your first step toward creating a display masterpiece?
Deciding the right display case. To do this you simply need to
sit down and think about not only your collectibles, but also the
space you have to display them in. Below you'll find some extra
tips for selecting and setting up your ideal display case.
Display Case Tidbits
Whether you plan to display one treasured item or multiple
items, it is important you set up your display case correctly.
Doing so will ensure that visitors see your collectibles in the
best light possible. You will also look on your display fondly
for years to come when you take the time to set it up correctly.
Here are some tips for setting up your display case
- Select the best style display case for your items. Remember
there are many different kinds of display cases. Some examples
include flag display cases, football jersey display cases,
sword display cases, die cast car display cases and more.
- Select from the many different cases available including
wooden display cases and metal ones.

different items, you may consider more than one display

items with like.
- Make note of the size and width of all items you plant to
display. Plan to place smaller objects in front of larger

- Avoid placing too many items together as this will make
your display seem overcrowded.
- Use a mirror to reflect images in your display.
- Clean items and display regularly to prevent dust build
Remember that less is more when it comes to a display. Often a
single object looks wonderful when on display all by itself. Keep
in mind if you are setting up a commercial display, like a
commercial pet display case, you may use a different tactic for
setting up your valuables. In this case you want to load your
display with as much information about any items you are selling.
You also want to make sure that your display case is kept need
and orderly at all times. The better your display looks, the more
customers you are likely to attract.
Keeping Your Display Case In Top Shape Year After

case once and then leave it. As with anything however, your
display case will need monthly and annual upkeep. The most
important thing you can do to protect your valuables is keep you
display clean and free from debris. Remember dust loves to
collect on anything that sits for a long period of time. Be sure
to clean not just the surface of your display and outer corners,
but also the inner nooks and crannies.
If you plan to display antiques or other prized collectibles,
you may have to take great care to ensure you don't damage any
items while cleaning. Check with a seasoned professional about
cleaning any antiques before doing so. You want your display to
look good, but you definitely also want your collectibles in top
Be weary of fingerprints. More likely than not most of the
time you will be cleaning fingerprints off your display case.
This is especially the case if you own a commercial display
Last but not least, consider rotating the items in your
display case every now and again. If you have several items you
want to display you can always change them out, keeping your
display looking fresh. Alternatively you can add some accent
items every now and again to help keep your display fresh. These
may include silk or real flowers or other items of
