Finding The Best Display Case For Your Treasures
Maybe you have a bunch of collectibles sitting in your closet
gathering dust. Or perhaps you've been storing your fine China in
the kitchen cupboards instead of a hutch. Far too often we
sequester our prized possessions rather than place them where
they deserve to be... on display.
Finding a good display case and setting it up is probably a
lot easier than you think it might be. Yes, there are many
display cases to choose from. Occasionally you may have a need
for a specialty case. Fortunately there are some easy steps to
follow to find the right case to show off your treasures.
Finding The Right Case
If you truly want to show off your valuables, first you have
to find the right case. There are certain circumstances that
warrant a specialty case. If you aren't sure if you need a
specialty case, here are some examples of cases that will help
- Die cast car display cases
- Flag display cases (military flag burial cases)
- Football jersey display cases (and other sports
- Jewelry display cases
- Sword display cases (and knife cases)
- Commercial pet display cases
If your prized possessions don't fit into any of the above
categories, chances are you can get away with ordinary wooden
display cases. This is good news because there are dozens to
choose from. Even if you need a specialty case rest assured you
are bound to find the right one to meet your needs.
Before deciding the right display case you first have to
decide what exactly you want to display. Some people prefer
displaying coins and other similar collections, while others want
to show off their favorite jersey or an award from some memorable
event. Keep in mind there are display cases large and small to
accommodate each of these needs.
Once you decide what you want to display, figure out how much
of it you have. This will help you decide the size of the case
you need. If you want to show off your coin collection and have
more than 100 coins, you'll need a larger case than a standard
size small display. Keep this in mind when shopping.
When picking your display case, also keep in mind where you
plan to display your treasures. You'll want to place them in a
prominent place, but likely you don't want to waste too much room
overall. Fortunately you can select an elegant yet compact case
many times to suit your needs.
When looking at display cases, you should have in mind how
many shelves, hooks, mirrors or other accessories you'll need to
showcase your items. A mirror is always a great bonus because it
can reflect your treasured collectibles within.
You should review several different models of display case
before you decide the one that is best for you. Keep in mind when
selecting your display case you will likely also need many
accessories. Some of the more common accessories include
anchoring wax, polish, self-adhesives and stick on feet. If you
plan to hang your china you will need the proper hooks to do so.
You also want to be sure to select a case that is sturdy. A
sturdy case will last a lifetime.
Display Your Items Correctly
Once you decide the right type of case you'll want to display
your items correctly. You want your collectibles to look great
and put a smile on your face. Whether an expert or novice, you
can do this following a few easy steps.
First, group your collectibles together. Next, be sure you
place small objects together. Remember that when it comes to a
display, less is more. The more items you try to jam pack in your
display, the more distracted the onlooker will be. Try to select
a few key pieces or even one piece to highlight if you can. This
piece can form the center of your display. Then, if you choose,
you can surround this object with others.
Remember, your display should reflect a little of your
personality as well. Have fun when creating your display. Pick
and choose accessories as you see fit. And remember, you can
always change things around to spice them up over time!
