In a world full of technological gadgets, the easel stand is still the ideal display and presentation solution. Whether it is for home use, a business application or in a teaching environment, there is a stand that will serve you better than any other type of presentation aid. What is the right easel stand for you?

In the home, we use them every day, often without even thinking about it. Our photographs are exhibited on brass stands that take pride of place on the mantel. We use a wire stand to hold open a cookbook while we work. Our kids may have a chalkboard mounted on an easel or do their finger painting on one. These examples just scratch the surface - you can probably think of many more.

In the office, secretaries use them to hold papers for transcribing. Another may display the company calendar. At the reception counter, a small stand holds business cards while a larger one contains informational brochures. A floor easel in the reception area displays company information or a promotional poster.

School teachers and other educators swear by the superior value of easels as teaching aids. They remark that it surpasses even new technological teaching aids, saying that a simple whiteboard easel creates a more dynamic connection between teacher and pupil.

This is equally true when using an easel stand as a teaching aid at business seminars. While viewers tune out the speaker during powerpoint, video and slideshow presentations, they focus on him and everything he has to say if he is using an easel as a teaching aid. It engages their active attention and encourages them to take notes and ask questions as he goes along.

Retail businesses, from cafes to five star hotels, find numerous uses for display easels as powerful advertising tools. Portable, sturdy and versatile, they can be used in any setting. A decorative stand can create a mood or enhance a setting. A functional stand can make an important announcement that is sure to capture the attention of every passerby.

The fact that there are so many different types and styles of easels available is proof of their popularity as presentation aids. There is an easel stand for every conceivable need. A wedding photograph is cradled in a brass tabletop easel. A modern collapsible stand holds everything a business man needs for his presentation.

Can you think of anything else? No doubt you see them everywhere, every day. As you pass by a theater, you see the announcement of an upcoming attraction. Outside your local bookshop, the latest thriller gets a plug. The list of uses for an easel stand is virtually endless.
