Film Displays, Ideas

So gentlemen,

We recently moved into a bigger location and remodeled a showroom, when it came to displays I couldn't wait to have something that looked great hanging there, but (you may have experienced this before too) I was totally blown away by how much film manufacturers were charging for displays. Which forced me to be creative, and I think we've come up with a pretty decent, versatile, customizable film display, and it could probably be done for less than half of what I was told the manufacturers was. So I come to you with the thought of possibly doing a little side business making window tint, PPF, and vinyl wrap displays. This is only a feeler right now, so any input is appreciated! Based on responses perhaps i'll pursue it a little more.

 

I've attached a couple pictures. The displays are made of 5mm thick acrylic. They measure 14" x 27", and I have them mounted to the wall using a 1/2" x 1 1/2" brushed nickel standoffs. They look super professional in person. The acrylic and standoffs I bought, but the pictures/images I made. See we do vinyl graphics and wraps as well, so it took no time to whip up the text/images. Which means that I can also customize anything and everything about the display and the information on them. Add your logos, remove manufacturers logos, use a different background picture, etc. I also like this because even though I use a couple different manufacturers films all my displays look the same. I don't have SunTek over there and Xpel for example over there. 

 

Like I said, just gauging interest as of now. I don't have an exact idea of price yet, but if we get that far I'll be happy to do some number crunching. Let me know what you think!

Those look nice Mpameno81!

Unlike a lot of the other film companies out there we don't use our promotional products as a profit center.

As an example, we sell our tshirts for less than $8 each. Our 3'x8' outside banners are $11, inside 5' tall floor standing banners $14, and our 18"x24" wall displays made from polycore aluminum are $59.

Here is an example of our wall displays and banner:

The image below reminded me of a high end home we did work in years ago. Only his was painted in the Tromp l'oeil  style and very realistic. Looked like a warehouse full of cars but the true garage walls were kind of a "y" shape allowing parking 3 cars to the left behind the one car in the garage entrance .

His head of security said the best security system in the world allows putting something right in front of you and you cannot see it.

I thought about real glass tintmeister, and I could have had a couple made up glass, but for the sake of cost (and a little safety, I worry about a random kid grabbing and pulling them or something) I decided to go acrylic. But for an interior application and for the displays purpose acrylic should work just as well as real glass.
