The Port Colborne Museum just ordered our very first custom designed display case for our museum in an 1860s house. We couldn't be happier with how it turned out. Justin worked with me to design a perfect mix of modern and traditional to fit our Museum's aesthetic. He was very knowledgeable and professional and easy to work with. We look forward to working with Obsidian again for our next display cases.

Justin was excellent to work with. He was able to get our project done within our limited timeline. We considered doing an IKEA kitchen, but working with Justin was so much simpler. He took care of the details, and his price was very comparable to IKEA.
The owner Justin was awesome to deal with. He really took his time to work with me on the design that would work best for what I was trying to accomplish. As a sports memorabilia collector, I knew I wanted the best showcase to display my items. I absolutely love what we came up with and would highly recommend Obsidian Manufacturing to any other collectors or even retail outlets out there. Top notch for sure!

Showcase Your collectibles

Protection and Preservation

Glass display cases protect collectibles from dust, damage, and in some cases, UV light. This helps in preserving the condition and value of the items.

Customization Options

These cases can be customized in size, shape, and design to fit specific collectibles, such as models, figurines, or antiques. Customization also includes choices in glass type, like tempered or UV-protected glass.

Visibility and Display Quality

High-quality glass provides clear visibility, enhancing the display of the collectibles. This is particularly important for detailed items, allowing viewers to appreciate their intricacies without handling them.

Security Features

Many custom cases come with security features like locks, which is essential for high-value collectibles. This adds an extra layer of protection against theft or tampering.

Lighting Options

Integrated lighting, such as LED, can be included to highlight the collectibles and enhance their visual appeal. This is especially beneficial for display in dimly lit areas or for creating a focus on specific aspects of the collectible.

Aesthetic Integration

Custom glass cases can be designed to fit the aesthetic of the room or space where they will be displayed. This includes matching styles, colors, and materials to the existing decor.

Maintenance and Durability 

Glass is relatively easy to clean and maintain, but it’s important to consider the durability of the glass and the frame, especially in high-traffic areas.

Cost Considerations

Customization and quality of materials can make these display cases a significant investment. It’s important to balance budget with the desired features and quality.

enhance the aesthetics of your collection

Collectors often have unique requirements based on the size, shape, and nature of their collectibles. Custom glass display cases can be tailored to meet these specific needs, whether it’s accommodating a large model ship or creating individual compartments for a series of small figurines. This ensures that each item is displayed optimally. 

Enhanced Presentation: Custom glass display cases are designed to showcase collectibles in the most visually appealing way. Their clear, unobstructed view allows every detail of the collectible to be seen and appreciated. The transparency of the glass ensures that the focus remains on the collectibles, making them the centerpiece of the display.

Our cases can be designed to fit seamlessly with the collector’s existing home decor or thematic presentation. This includes choices in frame materials, glass type, and overall design, ensuring the case complements the room it’s in.

Integrated Lighting: Custom cases can include built-in lighting systems, like LED lights, which enhance the visual appeal of the collectibles. Strategic lighting can bring out colors, textures, and details, making the items more striking and attractive.

By going with a custom solution our cases can be designed to efficiently use available space, such as fitting into corners, hanging on walls, or being built as freestanding pieces. This helps in maximizing display areas without cluttering living spaces.

Well-maintained collectibles displayed in quality cases often retain or increase their value. The display case itself can also add to the perceived value of a collection, making it more attractive to potential buyers.

protect and secure your collection

UV Protection: Some custom cases offer UV protection, which is essential for preventing fading and degradation caused by sunlight. This is particularly important for items that are sensitive to light, such as paper-based collectibles, fabrics, or colored items.

Protection from Environmental Factors: These cases provide a barrier against environmental factors such as dust, dirt, and humidity, which can be damaging over time. For delicate or aging items, this protection is crucial in preserving their condition and value.

Custom glass display cases are an excellent investment for collectors. They not only protect and preserve the collectibles but also enhance their display, ensuring that each item is shown in its best light. This makes the collection more enjoyable for the collector and more impressive to viewers.
