Unique Flip-Up Displays

Photos with flip-up captions

Flip-Up Displays

Our customer wanted to show photos of the White Mountain National Forest, but they didn’t want to take up a lot of the display space with the captions. Their idea was to be able to flip up the photo and read the caption.

We executed this project by direct printing onto 3mm dibond, which is a sandwich of aluminum and PVC. For each display, a photo was printed on one piece, and a caption on another. We bought aluminum piano hinger and cut pieces of the appropriate length, and then used Gorilla glue to fasten the hinges to the two pieces. The hinges were then drilled and countersunk through the caption piece for wall mounting with wood screws.

I watched a couple of kids looking at the display when I took this photo, and they were delighted to wonder what was in the picture, and then to flip it up to find out. How cool!
