A&E MARCH 2016 • a-e-mag.com 43 are available to stick on the back of the aluminum panels. The blocks are keyed for easy hanging using a nail or screw in a wall. For a higher end look, standoffs or edge gripper hangers can be used. Standoffs are available in different sizes, finishes and lengths. If you do multiple panels, you can use different length standoffs to give the pieces different depths for a unique high- end display. You will need to drill small holes into the panels for mounting the standoffs. If you prefer not to drill holes in the panels, you can use the edge grippers. They are similar to the standoffs, but the panels slide into the edge of the grippers. The bonus to edge grippers is that you can easily slide the panels out and slide a different one in quickly. If you like to live outside the box, you can search thrift stores or garage sales and find old frames. Take the frame and insert a Chromaluxe panel for an amazing- looking finished piece. Bonus: If you use the glossy panels, you can also use them for message or dry erase menu boards or signs. If you have large-format equipment, you can do high- end products easily in a short time that command a high price from customers. MINE SOME DIGITAL GOLD Your existing customers already have an abundance of digital gold on their mobile device or computer. Jump into that market with Chromaluxe photo panels and mine your own gold.
