sandwich has 2 parts...a face and a back...both made of acrylic.
Shown below is a sandwich that uses a
front 1/4" thick piece with a nice bevel on the edge.
is 1/8" and has no bevel.
This is an effective and beautiful way to display pieces without having
a frame involved with the design.
Sandwiches come with hangers (or easels as in the above photo)
that are hidden by your photos
or poster on the back.
All that needs to happen is to unscrew the plastic
screws that hold the front (or face) to the back. Then you would
remove the face,
position and tape your photo with double sided tape
within the confines of the back piece and replace the front sheet using
Glare issues can be dealt with by using non-glare acrylic on the
front piece. Ultra-violet and fading issues can be addressed similarly
with a front
piece of having UV filtering qualities. One further note as to
the Non-glare & UV sandwiches...on these
set-ups, the face (or front) is the
1/8" un-beveled piece and the back
is the 1/4" beveled...(just opposite of the one pictured above).
These are completely customizable in sizing and even thicker acrylic
stock can be used to
increase the bevel width if needed.
