"Photopop" is an 111/2x121/2" black imitation leather album
that holds 24 4x6" prints in six pages. When opened, the pages pop up
in three dimensions similar to children's pop-up storybooks. Many of the
frames hold multiple photos on several dimensions, creating depth. The "annex"
is a desktop model made of metal that accepts one 4x6, one 21/2x21/2, and one
31/2x31/2" print all at different heights and planes.

Mounting And Display Products
Pres-On introduced two new mounting/presentation products. First is a frameless
framing system that offers good rigidity and stands away from the background.
Lengths of clear plastic strips with a beveled sloped edge can be nailed, screwed,
glued, applied with a hook or adhesive tape to the background, then one or more
of these cleats are mounted to the back of the mounting board. They are easily
lifted up and off to change. By adding a spacer the print can be positioned
so one can overlap another for added depth. New folding display boards fold
down to 2x4 ft for carrying or shipping but fold open to 4x8 ft for display.
