intensiTiles™—Reconfigurable Wall Displays
(Bay Photo Lab)
For something a bit different, check out Bay Photo Lab’s intensi Tiles. These unique
displays are not only attractive but can easily be changed by removing the top tile and
replacing it with a new one (which is great for clients who have growing children). The
top image tile is attached using a mounting block, so the image floats above the background, creating a three-dimensional display. Photos can be printed on Lustre, Glossy
or Metallic Photo papers, and finished with a protective coating or laminate, and then
mounted on a ¼-inch back board. Complete packages are available but individual tiles
can be purchased as replacements.
Prices: Trilogy Package, 3-6 x 6 Tiles on a 9 x 24 Back Panel, $91.33; Quad Package, 4-8 x 8 Tiles on a 24 x 24 Back Panel, $194.62; 3-piece Package, 3 progressively larger Square Tiles: 1-12 x 12 on 1-18 X 18 on 1-24 x 24, $215.95
