When we set out to make a beautiful, eco-conscious picture frame, we knew it also had to be easy to hang. For anyone who has tried to frame and hang your work before, you know how challenging it can be to get it just right. That’s why all our bamboo and maple art panels come ready-made with a nifty keyhole slot on the back for easy hanging on your wall. All you need is a nail or screw, and you’re good to go. Unless, of course, the idea of hammering another hole in the wall doesn’t sit so well with your landlord, gallery director, mom, or other authority figure.
While we designed Plywerk to be as easy to set up as possible, we also realize that many people might not be able to hang it as we intended. We put our best wall-art engineers to the task of figuring out how to hang Plywerk without putting a hole in the wall, and the solution they’ve come up with pushes the boundaries of photo-mounting science. What’s more, they did it entirely with materials scavenged from dusty closet shelves, forsaken bottom drawers, and old pants pockets, eventually coming up with a bolt, a large washer, a couple of nuts, and an S hook. You might be wondering how any of these items can help hang a picture on the wall without putting a hole in it, but it will be easier to show you rather than tell you. Head over to our Flickr page to see how some basic household hardware items can become an elegant, wall-preserving hanging solution for your Plywerk.
Turns out, our engineers aren’t so easily stumped, and you can rest easy knowing that your Plywerk can hang beautifully without upsetting your mom.
