To save space I'm debating on getting a wall mounted or table top swinging panel photo display. Does anyone know the cheapest place to get one or have any alternative suggestions on what to do? I've got sixty some signed 16x20's and they would take up too much wall space. Below is the one I'm leaning toward purchasing. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or recommendations.

Steve, I'll post a link to the place I've been talking to. If it's against the rules of the forum I apologize and I'll take the link down. The Free Standing and the Table Top Display's only have 60 views. The Free Standing's smallest panels are: 37"H x 26"W which is too big and the one Table Top Display has a one with panels: 28"H x 22"W which is still too big. They have two smaller sizes but the width is only 14"W and 18"W which won't fit the 16x20's. I talked to a guy there and they design the displays so I can get one made that measures 16x20 and add additional panels. The archival-mylar-4mil-sleeves I have the photos in measure 16 1/2 x 20 1/2. So that is the size panels I will need. I've got 60 16x20's autographed but of course I plan on adding more to the collection. I asked him to give me a price for 35, 40 and 45 panels which will give me 70, 80 and 90 views. He is supposed to give me a call back tomorrow. Mylar sleeves themselves cost quite a bit, something like $225 for 75, but they are a must.

EDIT: I'll also add a link for where I get the mylar sleeves. You can get ones with a flap and without. http://www.bagsunlimited.com/c-701-photo-sleeves.aspx

One other thing. I really don't like the looks of the double decker. I guess some people would, some won't.

Ok, I got the quote a day early. This is the price without the acetate. He thought I was going to just use the mylar sleeves but I told him that I think there will be problems without the acetate. So I will update with the price with the acetate along with a price for the 45 panels tomorrow. This does not include shipping which will be around $80.

I ended up going with the Free Standing, 45 panel. That way I'll still have room for another 30 some 16x20's. Shipping from Delaware to New York will be around $80.
