Thanks to the advise and recommendations of Ralph Fahringer and Ron Carabotta I have successfully reworked my art booth display.  Here are the before (first picture) and after shots (second picture).  C&C welcomed.

Steve,

Just looked at the pictures more closely, I really like the "1/2 shelf" idea, I may just "borrow" that idea from you! Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I also like the added touch of the carpet. Now that is inviting!

Did you manage to get a couple of photos of you working for the walls?

Thanks everyone.  Still trying to figure a fast and effective way to hang the pictures.  Got some ideas just need to decide and finalize the plan.

Ron--got the ideas for alternating the shelves on one of the websites that sells booth display merchandise.  Decided on the single bi-fold and just alternate the shelves.  I think it adds a little more class to the booth.

Ralph--I have one picture of my hand with shavings on it while I'm holding the tool and the bowl is spinning.  Need to get one that you can really see the shavings flying out of the tool.  Even those these were high res jpg's, I think I need to convert them to vector files.  Of course, didn't know anything about vector files until about a week after I had the pictures enlarged and mounted on the foam board.

What is really interesting in comparing the two pictures is that the new display holds the same number of bowls and HF and only about 5 pens less.  It just doesn't seem as crowded and thus more appealing.

Converting to a Vector file makes a photo look more like an illustration than a photo.
Converting a photo that isn't very high quality to a Vector file isn't going to help sharpen it.


If you are seeing the image starting to fall apart from being enlarged too much, then the file wasn't as large of a file as you thought.

There is a photoshop plug in that allow me to enlarge a file to larger than normal. 

Plus, try to shoot them in the TIFF or RAW option instead of JPEG. The tiff is usually a larger file  than a jpeg.

As for hanging them, put a couple of pieces of velcro onto the side of the tent and again on the back of the foamcore.

The other possibility is to add grommets to the corners about an inch in and then hang them from the frame at the top of the booth.

Seriously, send me the file and what size you are trying to get it to and i'll see what I can do for you. Thumbs Up

You got to be kidding me? Both of these hold the same amount of product? What an improvement in looks! Thumbs Up WOW!!

And it looks like it will be easier to pack and transport, also.

WELL DONE

Steve I am very impressed you have taken a normal booth display and turned it into a gallery quality look. Maybe you could post a few pic's of how you made you booth shelves and display etc... Thumbs Up

Breck, they are really easy.  For the back shelving unit I purchased two 30" bi-fold doors and used 10" x 6' boards for shelves. (This idea I got from Ron Carabotta here on WTR.) I kept one of the bi-folds perpendicular to the shelf and the other bi-fold I set off at an angle.  The tow side shelving units are 36" bi-folds and I used a 12" x 3' board for shelves.  These shelves I alternated the large display area back and forth to give it a little different look.  On these shelves, I had the bi-folds open to the back, where on the longer shelves, I had the bi-folds open to the front.  Let me know if you need more info are still want some up close pictures.

Since posting this, I had a friend who does a lot of shows and puts on workshops on displays review my display.  She said I needed to create a little warmer tone to the booth by adding some color to the walls. So, that will be my next improvement.

Make it soft, subtle warm tones. Nothing strong like you had used on the table skirts.

Really looks good and i'm sure it will draw people in to buy!

Did you make a sign for the front of the booth?
