For some time here at Printworks we have been using the very versatile ‘Klemetric’ clamps with 8’x4′ MDF boards to put up extra display areas when we do occasional workshop shows. A pair of white emulsioned 15mm or 18mm boards and a pair of these great clamps and you have a nice, unfussy display surface you can screw, nail or glue to. The clamps are like super strong hinges and can be adjusted to any angle between 90 and 270 degrees. You can create flat display walls, zig-zags, corners, square or triangle boxes etc (more ideas on the Klem website). These clamps are about £14 each to buy. We now have a stock of fifty clamps suitable for 15-18mm boards (enough to make up ten or twelve decent three-board displays etc) and a current stock of around twenty boards.
