How to Pick the Right Size for a Display Box

Whether you are an antiques or sports memorabilia collector or you want to draw attention to a rare piece of art, selecting the right size display box is essential to the success of your exhibit. Below are some basic guidelines and suggestions to help you select the right display box and base for your item.

How Big Your Custom Display Box Should Be

To select the ideal size for your acrylic box with lid, you must carefully consider a few key factors. Always measure the item you wish to display. For items that are 16 inches or less, we suggest adding 1 to 2 inches to the item’s height and width to acquire the right acrylic box measurements. Please be advised that in order to get the proper size box for items greater than 16 inches, you may need to add 3 to 4 inches on each side. Your acrylic box should be used to provide your product with the ideal environment that promotes both balance and clarity.

In the image above, we’ve chosen a vintage teapot that measures 6″ H x 7″ W. As seen from left to right, the teapot precisely fits into the 8″ x 8″ box, is somewhat too tiny for the 10″ x 10″ display box, and gets buried within the 12″ x 12″ display box. In our opinion, the teapot fits best in the 8″ x 8″ area.

Different Box Groupings

You might eventually want to add one or more coordinating components to your display box, depending on what you are presenting. Whether you want to construct a constantly-changing exhibit or already have a huge display box, there are many ways you may improvise with various acrylic display boxes sizes.

In addition to being paired with a matching saucer in the 10″ x 10″ box and a matching teacup and saucer in the 12″ x 12″ display box, the same 6″ x 7″ teapot that only works on its own in the 8″ x 8″ display box can also be displayed with a matching teacup and saucer in the larger display boxes.

Different Bases for a Personal Look

Prior to selecting the best base for your display box, you might want to decide on the particular design you want to achieve. With so many bases to pick from, it could be difficult to know where to start. The several kinds of bases you might want to think about when buying your display box are briefly explained here.

Black Foundation

If you want a modern, sleek appearance that will help highlight the colors of your item, a black base may be the ideal option for you. Black bases are best for complementing into any contemporary setting and serving as a contrast for objects that are vibrant, bright, or light in color.

White Base

A white base is what you need to give your object a clean, uncomplicated basis. This base is ideal for any modern environment and is ideal for bold items that call for a polished surface.

Do you wish to bring attention to your thing from all sides? Mirror Base With a mirrored base, you may exhibit your item’s parts in the best possible way. When illuminating your goods, a base with mirrors improves the aesthetic of the room and adds more color and light.
