I got stumped (which is easy being new) yesterday after delivering a new framed piece to a customer . She thought piece looked beautiful and asked me how she could hang it in her office cubicle. I told her I was not too sure but I would do some research and get back to her. This particular framed artwork measures 15.75 x 17.75 and not too sure about the weight. Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 
Depending on the material covering the walls, Velcro may work. Otherwise, there are s-hooks that hang on the tops of the cubicle walls.

I have opted for the Velcro solution to decorate my own mini-office.

I agree with Ron regarding the options, however in my mini cube I opted for the plastic hook. It hangs over the top of the cubicle and it has a hook shaped bottom for the wire. These are also used to hang coats so it can sustain the weight. They can be bought at most Targets, WallMart, etc.....
 
Wow, Ron, I’m surprised … you didn’t suggest Wall Buddies.
 
We have a fellow Grumbler that sells a nice hanging system for Galleries. They also sell these for Panel walls. Near the bottom of the page is an item called HT2/HT3 for the tops of panels.

Also check out the Memo rails. I am considering them to hold work orders for my workbench. The price from his site is better than I found from other suppliers, like Staples and restaurant suppliers.
 
I have had customers use velcro, but to recommend feels kind of unprofessional, like suggesting repairing dustcover tears with ducttape! Or Bondo for compo repair. (I'd use Bondo, but wouldn't give out the trade secret!)

Bob, the Velcro works just great with my 4x6 acrylic snapshot frames from Wal-Mart.

I didn't even have to remove the magnets from the back.
 
Ron, you could atach the Velcro to the magnetic strips you can cut out of "dead" refrigeratrs at the <strike>dump</strike> local recycling/transfer station. Then you could use the magnets that come on the frames.

I didn't say I don't use velcro, just trying to imply that when I hand over a $147.50 framing job I would like to offer the customer something more substantial than velcro and magnets! Maybe it's just me (usually is:) )!

For a really different office decor theme you can get a fridge door from the dump and attach that to the cubicle wall and stick your magnetic frames to it! An older 50's style White Westinghouse Fridge with the compressor top and the ice box door handles do make nice conversation starters.
Guaranteed that within two days people will start reminiscing about their favorite Lassie episode!

Thank you!

The HT hooks are a good solution for panels. We also have the Classic Line "SPECIALLY DESIGNED
C3-RODS" (bottom of page) that can be suitable for this kind of application.

In the right environment that would be a fun thing to do, then all they would need is some magnets, and no framer....Wait a minute!
