  • Don't Neglect Your Exhibit! Check Out These Sign and Banner Supports

    A dazzling exhibition has a lot of thought and careful curation go into the final results, but have you neglected the small details to make your exhibit come to life?

  • 3 Benefits To Museums Using Hanging Systems

         Every museum must eventually mount something on the wall. Blank walls would just be wrong in a venue full of art. But when they put up their art, many museums reach for the old standbys: tape, hammer, and nails. These are fine, but there is a better way. You can purchase a hanging system consisting of tracks and fastening clips. You simply mount the track on the wall, slide your artwork onto the clips and click the art into place. This has three benefits over the traditional methods.

    Interchangeability

        There is no need to get a new nail when you want to change your art display. You can unhook the last piece from the clips, apply them to the new piece, and you are ready for your new exhibit. This saves the people setting up the display the hassle of hunting for a nail. It will let you conserve your nails for other projects, too, which saves you a lot of hassle when buying supplies for your exhibits.

    Preserve The Walls

         Artwork can get heavy and that means that putting the full weight of the work on one or two nails can strain the wall. The wall-mounted tracks spread out the weight of the artwork over a bigger area, making it far gentler on your walls. Plus, you don't have to find a new spot to hammer a nail into the wall when you hang a new picture. This means fewer holes in the plaster.

    Preserve The Art

         Wall-mounted rails are gentle on the frames. There isn't any straining against wire and gravity while it hangs. Most importantly, it's a secure way to hang the art so there is less of a chance that your pieces will get knocked over by careless handling or tremors. You don't want to have your piece's glass front cracked.

         If you think your operation could benefit from a hanging system, contact us. We have great art hanging systems that your museum will love.

Whether you are considering a Zurich suspension kit, a classic suspension kit or a self-gripping support set, it is important to take a closer look at our own personal needs to ensure compatibility. Some may need to hang items from one designated location and others may require suspension systems that are a bit more complex in nature. This is definitely something to bear in mind.

    Minimalism

Choosing a minimalist suspension system is a great ideas because it allows the art to remain the center of attention.

  • Do Your Home's Lights and Artwork Complement Each Other?

    Turning living rooms into art galleries is becoming more and more popular. Maybe you have a photo wall you want to emphasize. You might have a growing art collection you want visitors to see. No matter what attractive displays you want to showcase on your home's walls, make sure your decorations and your lighting work together.

    Do you have a track system for your artwork?

    If you have more than one frame you want to highlight, a track system is the best way to get a straight and aligned arrangement every time. It also keeps the visible hardware to a minimum. Even better, it limits the risk of wall damage, which is great if you're renting an apartment or leasing a house. Depending on the type of artwork you have, ranging from lightweight four by six photographs to heavy oil paintings, you might need different structural elements to stop it from falling. Look for a high-quality track system that has standard pieces and a range of hardware strengths so you don't need a completely different assembly for every change.

    Get track lighting to match your track system.

    You need ambient lighting that puts the focus on the art display. Interior designers are focusing on the idea of layered lighting for residences. Not only does your home work best if you have a consistent base layer of lighting that reaches every corner, you need task lighting and ambient lighting fixtures that make your home more functional and inviting. Having an art gallery and lighting it up with track lighting that draws the eye is a great way to make your home interesting and attractive to your visitors. 

    Don't use nails and hooks to secure your artwork. It can take hours to make everything hang straight and to repair the wall when you want to rearrange. Instead, go to Systematic Art here for hardware and long-lasting equipment that looks great.

Picture rails also give the homeowner a tool to frame their artistic vision on the wall, quite literally. For more information about art hanging, contact us today!

    What are picture rails?

    Picture rails are a thin piece of molding that runs along the wall parallel to the ceiling. The rail is slender and not cumbersome to the room. The homeowner can choose a different style of rail to his or her own artistic choice; the two mounting options of the picture rail are a ceiling mount and a wall mount.

  • Three uses for acrylic pocket displays

    If you have a pile of acrylic pockets stuffed in your office supply closet, it is time to bring them out and put them to good use. Whether you are a teacher, an activities director in an assisted living home, or an office manager, acrylic pocket displays can both enliven the walls of your facility and efficiently display information. Try one of the following suggestions to get the most out of these versatile holders.

    1. Inexpensive Artwork Displays

    Teachers love watching kids blossom during an art or photography class and showing their work is a great way to encourage them. These classes often result in many different artworks of a uniform size. An acrylic pocket display easily turns a blank wall or hall into a student art exhibit.

    It is quick and easy to insert the artwork into the pockets and simply tape them to a wall. Or, you can make a clothesline from colorful string and hang the acrylic pockets with brightly hued plastic clothespins. After the exhibit is over, the durable acrylic pocket preserves the artwork until the young artist is ready to present it to a loved one.

    2. Protect Frequently Handled Documents

    Menus, training materials, procedures, and other frequently handled documents get the information across better if they stay readable as they pass from hand to hand. An acrylic pocket display can help make important information accessible and visible. Use a cable suspension system with clips to display the documents on a wall, encouraging people to read and return the items. Or, store multiple copies of the document in the pocket itself so it is easy for people to take one.

    3. Make information more visible and accessible

    An acrylic pocket display can help you provide efficient and inexpensive signage during a temporary event, such as a hiring fair. Place your maps, directional signs and other orientation material in the acrylic pockets and hang as needed. This inexpensive approach ensures that you can hang as many signs as you want, allowing your clients or employees to get easily to the correct spot. The streamlined frameless look ensures that there is less clutter than with other display methods.

  • Two Things That Should Always Be in Your Store's Windows

    Attracting customers who are passing by can be hard to do. There are a lot of distractions outside, people are looking at their phones more than displays, and your store has to compete with nearby businesses. But attractive window displays and attention-getting graphics are one of the only ways to secure new business to your physical store. Here are two must-have details that need to be in your windows:

    Have clear signs and banners.

    Window displays don't just highlight your featured products. They are a platform for communicating with potential and recurring customers. So dedicate a large portion of your open window space to banners with clear-cut messages. You should be advertising semi-annual sales, new product lines, and new benefits of your loyalty program. If there is any seasonal or time-sensitive information that you think shoppers need to know, this is the place to post it. Make sure you have the tools to hang large ceiling-to-floor banners so you can maximize the use of the space without compromising on design.

    Stage your products.

    More and more stores are creating scenes in their front windows instead of just laying products out or displaying manikins. This is even more important if your store specializes in home goods and clothing or accessories. Shoppers are looking at how products can integrate into their lives, not just how the products themselves look. That means every scene needs a background, and it shouldn't just be a blank partition to separate the window from the store. Invest in good hanging hardware and art display tools so you can arrange everything from artwork to faux shelves and furnishings in the background.

    It's important to have displays that are interesting without being busy. Go to Systematic Art for reliable, invisible hardware that fades into the background while helping your store stand out.

  • Three Problems with Traditional Art Hanging Tools

    Hanging photographs in your home is a great way to personalize the space. But if you have an iron-clad lease around your rental home or apartment, the potential loss of your deposit might make you think twice about making the space your own. There's a good reason for that concern. Even the most conscientious inhabitants can damage the walls and risk their good record. Here are three problems to watch out for with traditional art and photo hanging procedures:

    A single point of contact puts too much pressure on the walls.

    Drywall isn't a sturdy substance. It can muffle noise and helps break up a space, but it's not strong enough to support much weight or tension. Frames that hang from a central point put the aggregate weight of the frame, enclosed artwork, and the hanging support itself on one narrow point. Over time, the hole will start to widen. That also makes the nail or screw increasingly loose, and it can tear through more of the wall when it eventually comes loose.

    Frames with two points of contact will require a lot of adjustments.

    Frames with a nail or a hook at each of the top two corners help divide the weight so each point only has to control half of the total. But it can be next to impossible to get the display fully level. That means you're going to be repositioning the hooks over and over again, and leaving multiple holes in the wall can make picky property managers respond poorly. 

    Sticky tools leave residue and can't be reused.

    If you forego nails and screws entirely, you might turn to sticky patches. These won't poke holes in the wall, but they often leave brightly colored residue. If you have textured walls, they also won't stick correctly and your art can fall down. If you need to re-level a photograph or part of a larger display, most of these products won't restick to the wall, so you're buying new supports every time you make a change.

    Instead of damaging your walls or buying one-use-only tools, go to Systematic Art for supports and display tools that will work just right over and over again.
