Preeping for a busy convention season! I’ve always wanted a really nice way to display my stickers but everything I have bought has fallen flat. There was one from Clear Displays that @johnwills posted but it was a bit big for the stickers size i do. The shelves @caribis2 posted in the free designs category were closer to the size I was looking for but still not quite right. So I took their design and flexed my illustrator muscles (small as they may be) and got to work.
I ended up making a TON of prototypes out of cardboard (luckily we have a bunch laying around as we just moved into this place last month). Some of my initial ideas weren’t translating from 2d to 3d well, but I managed to work it out.
But in the end it all worked out. The first cut with draftboad was a tad loose in the joints but try 2 was perfect!
They came out great! And if you decide to decorate them at some point, I’ve had great success with engraving a design on Draftboard and coloring it in with colored pencil (Prismacolor). You can seal it afterward with a spray sealer or fixativ.
I have a lot of small items that I’ve been slowly trying to work out how I would present them. I think you have just helped me solve that problem!
I’ve been approached by a few small business in my community that offered to help sell some of my stuff, but the display was the only piece of the puzzle I had been missing. Thanks for the inspiration, and awesome project!
