Postcard Holder

In promoting my latest body of photographs, I decided to get postcards printed instead of color business cards to make more of an impression. But now I had to find a way to display the postcards in my booth so people could take them without having to ask. All the acrylic brochure holders I found were 1/4 of an inch too narrow because they're sized for tri-fold brochures. After spending days researching and calling acrylic display companies, I decided to take my design to the same carpenter who builds my display boxes. The postcard holder is lighter than it looks and also lighter than the postcards it can hold.

The bottom and sides are made from 1/2" plywood and the front and back are 1/4". Interior dimensions are 4-1/2" wide by 2-1/2" deep to hold vertically standing postcards. Outer dimensions are 5-1/2" wide by 8-1/2" high by 4-1/2" deep at the bottom. There is a double back wall with the inner standing straight up (for use on a desk) and the back slightly leaning in so that when it hangs on the wall of my booth, the cards will be angled slightly back and not fall forward. I drilled holes for hooks in the back and intend to use Velcro to give it additional support on the wall. I've also painted it black (right photo) to match my display.
