Product Description

I love to collect post cards, and prints from my favorite artists! In the workplace, or dorms, the only good space to display art and pictures is on a bulletin board or cubical walls. Traditionally push pins are used to hold the pictures up. The down side is, push pins do not look nice, and they damage your picture or prints! Even if you do not put holes in the art, the push pins still dent your prints. So, I have designed a simple frame that sits over any standard push pin. The frame adds a clean look to your hanging prints, but also keeps the prints in prefect condition!

Prototyping is something very important in creating functional designs. Because I was able to print out a prototype, I could test the design, and function of the piece.

My original design ended up looking too bulky when printed out, and tended to fall off the pushpins. By testing with prototypes, I was able to iterate on my design, and make the changes to give a much more functional finished product!

My final product ends up using much less material, is lighter, is stable sitting on the pins, holds the print securely, and looks more streamlined. For example, I angled the inner walls of the pin holder so that gravity naturally holds the frame on the pins. For larger prints, you can also hang a frame upside down to hold the upper edge. For the smaller prints I found that usually the upper frame is not needed (unless you are in a more breezy spot) because I designed a small groove and lip on the frame for the print to naturally sit into and be stable.

The final product could be printed in a variety of colors to compliment art or photos.

PS. Art shown in these pictures: Little Red Riding Hood, and Monster Hug by Emma SanCartier. Batman on Unicorn by Paul Friedrich.
