  • Where did you find the Stairs riser? That one seems like it's perfect for me, yet I cant seem to find it online.

    plasticrhombusIl y a 6 ans#2088800Another resource to add: TAP Plastics! (i work there but don't make commission lol just trying to share, I make my own risers/custom cases whenever I feel like it)
    www.tapplastics...
    We have those on the shelves (we're west coast united states) and ship world wide, and we'll custom make the same thing to any specifications if you come in, perfect bubble-less glue joint or heat-bent, square or cylindrical.
    We can also make seamless acrylic display cases if you want a special case for a bigger figure or something.
    Hope to see some figure people come in haha


    Added it to the aricle, thank you!

    raptorxIl y a 6 ans#1989798I actually found out today that a company not too far from where I live also has these items available: musdeco musdeco.nl/inde...
    I have no clue if they offer discounts for larger amounts, but at least it's close enough to drive there to see if I can get some stuff that I can use :)


    Oh! Never seen that shop before! I'll add it to the article! :) Their prices seem around average and some parts a bit more expensive.

    maggieIl y a 6 ans#1957012Sorry I wasn't clear! I meant to say, many people use step risers (I have some black ones in my Ace collection picture that I display keychains and small figures on). I feel like the long, thin risers are a good method as well because you can place figures under the riser, whereas in step risers they are usually solid and you are not able to do this, you must place a figure in front.

    Ahhh~ Like that! I use those really high risers myself to make steps from seperate risers. Old picture, but a good example: PICTURE #409291 :)

    I don't really understand what you mean with substitutes for risers? I see normal risers in your picture...? ;)

    maggieIl y a 6 ans#1941360Totally love this article. I've been buying random risers when I see them for a while now, and they completely transform a collection. I agree to buy more than you need, when you have a pile of them it allows you a lot of creativity when organizing. I especially love things like this for keychains and small figures: www.containerst... (good for small figures and some that have larger bases and smaller bases to be displayed together), www.joann.com/a... (good for keychains from the same series/size). You can see an example of an organizer/container in this picture: picture/903031&... and here: picture/556969&....
    Fabric and craft stores (Jo Ann fabrics, Michaels in USA) carry the above examples in their organization sections, and many times have 50% off coupons and discounts running. From experience, these are better picked out in person because some of them have hinges that don't allow the box to be displayed on its side. Best to buy something that is like a drawer organizer with no lid. Also, takes some of the guesswork out of if the thing you want to display will fit or not. I usually bring a few various sizes of keychains with me when I know I'll be shopping for displays.
    My favorite risers are often ones that aren't very wide, but are long (as in, 2" wide, 6-7" long. They can substitute as risers, and you can display something underneath the riser as well. You can kind of see this in my character shrine: picture/194679&... (very old outdated picture of the shrine, but it illustrates my point better).
    Thanks again for the article, hope I offered a little bit of input!
