Label Holders

Information is another important part of the museum experience so free standing signs and wall signs are widely used. Wall hung label holders are commonly used next to artwork to identify the artist and describe the artwork.

 Sleek Simplicity

The Label Holder is an industry standard. Absolute has completely re-engineered it to make it slimmer, stronger and cost effective.

Inform Effectively and Discreetly

The objective is to offer information in the simplest, least distracting manner possible, and the Label Holder does this by displaying information about the artwork in an easy to read and discreet manner. Close enough to inform but not so close as to distract. The Label Holder works by sliding the cover to one side and inserting the information ‘label’.


Dimensions and Finish

The Aluminium-Backed version of our Label Holder has a thin extruded aluminium backplate with a clear acrylic cover. It has the advantage of being extremely slim, robust (it will last far longer than the all acrylic version), cost effective and comes with a single screw fixing (on the smaller sizes) to aid positioning and leveling. Sizes range from 2x4 to 11x14 Landscape. 

Useful Tips and Guidelines

For the smaller sizes of Label Holder with a single screw fixing, displays that may be subject to touching by the public can be ‘fixed in place’ by putting a small dab of blue tack in one corner on the back of the Label Holder. Then when the holder is level and the screw tightened, it will remain in that position.

When installing on a fabric-covered wall, a screw fixing will probably damage the surface of the material. In this instance we recommend using one of the hardened steel pins with a shallow brass head from picture hanger hooks, as these will sit within the countersink and pierce between the fabric threads, leaving little or no damage, even, when done carefully, on silk covered walls.
