  • Displaying Jewellery Photos at Craft Fair

    I thought it would be worthwhile putting together a 'portfolio' showing photos of my jewellery, which people could flick through at my stall. The obvious answer is to put these in an album. Has anyone got any ideas where I could get a cheap, but attractive photo album from? I don't want to spend a fortune, but on the other hand want it to look in keeping with the rest of my stall & not look too cheap & cheerful.

    I recently bought a smallish album from Ryman the stationers. They were on off and they had quite a few different ones. The one I bought had a nice suede finish and had space at the side of the photo sleeves you could write on. Cant remember how much but was definitely less than a tenner.
    I have displayed pictures of my cards and written at the side some of the alternatives that could be considered with each of the designs. I take it to craft fairs with me, only wish I had more time to photograph and print out more of my designs and fill it up! Am just putting commissions in for now.
    Hope this helps, worth a look anyway

            What about a digital photoframe then you don't have to go to all the expense of printing your photos, it will also take up less space and you can change the pictures as often as you like, they often take SD cards so you could just have a couple of them with different albums on

              Hi.
              I bought a very cheap one from The Range as an experiment. Used it at the last pamper evening I did and not 1 person looked at it, even though it was open in the middle of my display!
              Hope you have better luck with yours.

                Thanks for all your suggestions. I had a look in TK Max today and they have some really nice ones at good prices. But most of them seemed a bit on the big side in relation to the available space on my stall. So I've opted for the Hobbycraft spiral bound option (thanks Mrs G!!) - might customise it with a purple ribbon on two to tie in with the rest of the display (assuming I have time!).

                  I have all my pics in a nice leather album from Tesco. It cost £5 and its been great! I dont take it to fairs but iv had LOADS of business with people taking it into their work.

                    I've been thinking for a while about having an album of all my jewellery 'cos I've got loads of designs that I don't do any more and quite often get asked at craft fairs for something not in stock. If I had an album, they could order from that. I probably wouldn't display it as it would take up too much space. One more thing to carry though! I may get an album published as it might not be so bulky.

                    I also use a digital photo frame at bigger craft fairs, which has images of me making jewellery, to demonstrate that it's hand-made by me. It's surprising how many people stop and look.
                    Best wishes

                        I think the digital photo frames look great on craft fair stalls and make quite a talking point too.

                        Although a nice portfolio is great too. I really like the idea of doing a portfolio lin old fashioned photo albums from junk shops and the like.
