Silent Auction display?

Have always kept our GC until paid for. After years of using space-hogging page holders for certificates, we came upon the perfect solution--not fancy but effective. We key (in large type) name, address, donor, and amount of gift card or service; then neatly cut entries into strips, and neatly afix each to a black foam poster with rubber cement (making them easily removable to use posters the following year). Item numbers are written on circles made with a large craft punch and glued to the left of each entry on poster. The two posters are affixed on each wall, at the ends of the tables, with bid sheets on table below. We "tent" the third poster on the middle row of tables, bid sheets next to it on each side. An added convenience is that the GC are confined to three areas and are easy for auction attendees to find!

Collage photo frames are a fast & easy way to do this. One of our chairs was always concerned that someone may steal a gift certificate/card, so she was militant about holding them until auction amount was paid. We took photos of the cards/certificates & placed them in the photo slots, and listed an inventory next to the auction sheet.

We've done a photo serving tray (one card in each photo section), a small card holder (similar to a Christmas card holder), a photo tree (looks sort of like a tree with several wire clips hanging down, perfect to hold the cards), and even a simple easel back collage frame.

I have several restaurant gift certificates, they are all small $ amounts, anyone have any ideas on how to group them? I don't want to buy a lot of display props....

I have agreed to join our church school auction committe and reading all of your leads will be so helpful!

I was wondering if everyone had much success with e-mailing or better response by mailing your request. I have been e-mailing the request and stating that I will send a formal letter and tax receipt upon their response.

If anyone has additional companies that are very willing to donate, I would appreciate the information.
