I present here an easy to make 'Z Fold Display Standee' which is compact to carry and can alternatively be displayed on a flat surface using double-sided tape.

This Instructable has two novel features:

  1. It reuses old scrap foam board material form discarded No-Parking/Advertisement signs
  2. Presents a method of providing stability to the opened-out display by incorporating a method to weigh down the bottom edges.

Step 1: Materials

The Standee is built using low cost Foam board (graphic art board) re-purposed from old no-parking/advertisement boards.

The Z-Folding is implemented using cloth hinges and stability to the display in standing position is provided by metal rods inserted into cloth channels glued to the bottom.

Materials:

  1. Foam Board 12" x 18" Six Pieces
  2. Cloth for Hinges 1.5" x 5" 30 Pieces
  3. Synthetic General Purpose Glue (Fevicol general purpose white adhesive used)
  4. Stapler
  5. Steel rod 3/8" X 10" six pieces
  6. Display printout sized to 12" x 18" Six Sheets
