Vinyl Record Frames
Lots has been happening here at Records On Walls, but unfortunately, I have been a bad updater and haven't written anything in sometime. So today, I'm going to try and make good, and share with you some pictures of the vinyl record displays that have been sent to me over the last few month. As well, I can also give you a hint that we'll be adding another product to this website in the next week or two. Unfortunately, it's not the 7-inch record frame that people have been requesting, but it's something cool, nonetheless. Before I bust into a picture jam, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank all the people who ordered some ROW frames for the back to school season. I hope your dorms / apartments / man caves are rocking wicked, and I'm sure they are!
This first set of photos comes from Michael in Michigan. He takes advantage of one of the coolest features of Records on Walls vinyl record frames, and uses them to easily display gatefold artwork. He also wrote me a nice email, which I have included below, followed by his pictures:
I received my order of your Records on Walls frames a couple days ago and have wasted no time in mounting them on my wall and getting some satisfaction out of them! Although I originally intended to space the three of them a few inches apart in a way similar to the tutorial video on your website, I ultimately decided to put them all together so they essentially function as a single frame. I did this for two reasons, the first being practicality: it was a lot easier to align them properly edge-to-edge (and keep them straight) than it was when they were a few inches apart. And the second, and probably more important, being flexibility: this set-up allows me to display a gatefold and a cover right next to each other, not just three covers as I originally intended. I absolutely love your frames and the creativity they enable! I've attached some photos so you can see exactly what I've done, and right below I've provided some explanations for what you're seeing (if you need it: some of the artwork is pretty iconic!). Thanks again and take care!
This next set of photos comes from Lori in Colorado. She has a set of 8 record frames with some nice classic covers:
This last photo comes from Dixon in Maryland, and is just awesome. He used 16 frames on a wall using the popular 'checkered records' display pattern. But he also mixed it up by having a nice oil painting breaking up the pattern a bit, and also added a column of 3 which works nicely. I think the effect is simply amazing. Very nice work, Dixon!
Thanks again to everyone for sharing their vinyl record displays, and I look forward to adding pictures / updates more frequently in the future. All the best, Steve
