Just like in any other exhibit , proper labeling and presentation is important especially if you want to let observers and masses convey a sense of history or a bit of an info about your collection . Or maybe brag that it’s a complete set or it was sourced from far away wherever. The exhibitor may also want to answer all queries from onlookers. But since the exhibitor can’t stay with your display all the time, these labels will help your admirers to learn more about your collection and answer some of their questions . Some exhibitor also leave their contact numbers maybe if they wanted to answer the questions of the people or just wanted to sell some of their excess collection.
