PLEXIGLASS BOXES AND VITRINES

When you have a three-dimensional object that is too large to go in a frame, or you need to be able to see the object from many different angles and not just head-on, what do you do? You have us make a "plexi-box", a plexiglass or acrylic construct that completely encases the object and provides you with a way to view it, while keeping it away from dust, environmental pollutants and strangers' hand.

Usually, these plexiglass boxes or "vitrines" sit on a shelf, a ledge or a desk to be viewed. More often than not they can have the top easily removed for ready access. In some cases, they protrude off the front of the frame (known as a "flanged lip plexibox").
