Flash Display Stands
Tattoo artists need flash display stands, especially those who operate in small shops. After all, not only will you be showing your own designs, but chances are, you’ll be displaying designs that you’ve traded for or commercially purchased ones that inspire you. Fortunately, there are a number of customizable options out there for tattoo artists.
Tattoo Flash That Is Solely for Display
Most artists display flash art solely to help customers decide what kind of tattoos they want—in addition to giving them as sense as to the artist’s aesthetic. If that describes you, then read on.
Wall-mounted displays. Wall-mounted racks are perfect for those artists looking to maximize space. These racks will allow you to stack your flash art in vertical trays and still have it be accessible to your customers, who will be able to flip through them in and search through your flash art. In incredibly tight spaces, you can even install these into a corner to save more room.
Self-standing displays. These displays are still efficient uses of space, but require a bit more floor space to install. They also tend to be the largest display option, meaning that you can cram a whole lot of flash art into these; however, that also means that if you tend to create sheets of display art (rather than individual pieces of flash), you need to size your work accordingly, or mix and match.
Tabletop units. These units come in handy if you have a particularly large space or travel a lot and need portable display stands. They require a table on which to set up the units, and they tend to store fewer (and smaller sized) flash art, but these are a must if you’re a frequent guest artist.
Tattoo Flash That You’re SellingMany tattoo artists will sell their art in their shops; making tattoo flash display stands an essential product for them. When placing your stands, be sure to consider where they’ll have the biggest impact on your customers; the more prominent the placement, the more likely you are to make a sale.
You’ll likely want to select from one or more of the above options for display purposes, but here are some tips:
If you’re only selling a handful of flash sheets, size your display accordingly. You don’t want your work to be dwarfed by the display stand—and conversely, you don’t you’re your work to spill out of the stand.
Make sure that there’s a plastic sheet in front of the tattoo flash, and boards behind it. It’s the only sure way to protect it from damage brought about by excessive handling.
Look for display units that have pockets in front for pricing or informational sheets.
Consider using poster frames instead of stands. If you only have a small amount of flash art—or if you have a large amount of wall space—then poster frames ought to do the trick nicely. Just be sure that they’re displayed front and center in your shop.
