One of the most important things to consider when choosing a donor wall display system is whether or not it would have to be regularly updated. If names have to be constantly added to the wall, it is imperative that the technology be available to make the process easier. Sometimes it can be quite difficult to add names on the wall, particularly if there is limited space on the donor wall. That being said, this does not mean you have to compromise on the aesthetic appeal of the donor wall. For this, it is important that you choose the right donor wall display system . Here are the options you can choose from:
As the name shows, the nameplates bearing the donors’ names are stuck to the wall using magnets. It gives the impression that the plates haven’t been mounted, which provides a neat look to the donor wall. The magnets used are quite powerful so you don’t need to worry about the names falling off. The names of the donors are engraved on the nameplates so there are plenty of customization options available to you in that regard.
The names of the donors are printed on a Mylar sheet after which the sheet is set up using two substrates. The substrates keep the sheet in place. This is a convenient option if the names have to be updated. You simply have to print a new Mylar sheet with an updated list of names and you are good to go.
Tracking systems are installed on different levels on the donor wall. The nameplates bearing the names of the donors are slid into place by placing them on the track. Blank nameplates can be added to the wall and then names can be engraved when more donors make contributions. This is another great option as far as updating donor walls is concerned.
Data management software is used to update electronic interactive donor walls. Updating names is easier and the digital display allows for the use of more sophisticated visual aids. Donors’ pictures can be added to the wall along with their names. The organization can also share its mission statement and success stories. The wall can be updated from any computer as long as it has internet connectivity.
These are some of the types of donor wall systems you can choose from. As you can see, each one has its benefits. It is up to you to decide which one suits your needs and budget the best.
