I really want to come up with different, out of the ordinary, perhaps even abstract ideas on ways to display/frame photographs. I just want to offer clients something a little unusual rather than the standard frames etc. My first ideas are these two below. Basically they'd be used to display "off cut" photographs from shoots, detail shots, abstract crops etc. They are old mini CD jewel cases, i've got about 200 unused. 1. This is the wall mounting with a "3D" centre image protruding about an inch from the four base photographs. The prints are 3.25" x 3.5".

2. This is basically a cube with six photographs, simple idea, but a little different.. is it too gimmicky? (excuse the prototype blu-tack)

I want to offer the wrap around canvas type prints, say a set of 5 or 7. Again these would be "3D" mounted on the wall, perhaps protruding at 3 different lengths from each other. One set would include say a centre canvas of 12"x12", and 4 surrounding canvases at 7"x7". I'll have to get some canvases done and make up a mount to get an idea. I think it's Venture that offer some really nice frames, frames inside frames, marble, the 3D canvas thing etc.. It's a great idea and i think around my area if i were to offer something a little different i could definitely use that to my advantage.
sorry about the formatting, i have trouble with this forums post editing thingy.

I think you've got a good idea there.

Perhaps rather than the cube idea.. Have them so they can mount onto the wall?

So.. Have one stitch of a photo in each CD case, so that put together, it shows one big image? They do it on canvas, etc, etc... But hey, if I could buy some puzzle thing that was in CD-format or something along the lines, I would.

Yeah the puzzle thing is a good idea, do you mean with several cubes? where they slot into a 2x3 frame (6 cubes) which will make 6 different photographs which they can sort out like a puzzle? I like that a lot!

I think another idea with the cube is maybe just have 5 photos on it and on the left over side i'll have my company logo and details on.. I'll give one (or two) away free to parents if it was a family shoot, just to give them something a little different to put on their office desk at work.

I'll give it a go.. Just thinking about what the best material and way to make the frame with, metal, wood, etc.. I'll do it though and post the photos and i'll take it around get some feedback on it, too.. let you know what people think.
