I've been asked to come up with ideas for a display for three record album covers that could easily be changed by the customer from time to time. My first & I think easiest idea is to use turnbuttons or some such so that the display can be dropped out the back. 2nd might be to hinge the front. His idea was to be able to slide it out from the side like a drawer but this seems more difficult & impractical to me. Anyone done something like this or have other ideas? Maybe there are premade displays that might work? I think it would be ok with the customer if this didn't cost an arm & a leg though he realizes the arm will definatly have to go. For you youngsters out there a record album is much larger than a CD and often featured very colorful artwor... Whats a CD you ask... oh, never mind.

I did a couple dozen for a local restaurant and I used turn buttons and acrylic instead of glass.

It doesn't seem like they ever change them out though. Maybe it was just a philological thing.

A sliding drawer design may be a little over the top in price and difficulty.

If you do design such, could you share some photos?

This company does that for posters and will do them to the size you want. I believe you can buy components or the full package. Read through their website or give them a call. Try Swingframe

Best,
Tim

SHH! Don't want to mention the "M" word but they have 12x12 LP frames simple black moulding with flextabs on the back. EZ in and out, I think they cost $14.99 hard to compete with that but you may look at them for an idea.
I will deny ever mentioning "M" if asked! :D


PS. Bainbridge/Nurre Caxton has some nice simple black frames with CC glass in them that would work with a removable back. Take out the double archival mats and the would work as they are 12x12. Seems like you buy them by the six-pack and they retail at either $44.95 or 49,95 and the trade gets a 65% discount.

For the frame, a shallow shadowbox or liner with background, attached to wall. A deeper frame with fixed flazing slides over - no hardware needed.

For the mount, a clear film overlay attached to the back of a mat that falls out when the frame opens.
