How to make display from PVC?

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to make a display out of PVC pipe?

I'm going to a few comic book conventions - exhibiting in artist's alley - and I'm trying to come up with ways to make my space more eye catching.

I have an idea for creating a kind of display rack for behind my booth made out of PVC pipe. I was thinking of something I could use to string up a banner and maybe hang some t-shirts from.

Has anyone done something like this? Can they give me any tips? Maybe where to shop for materials, cost estimates or schematics?

Let me know!

Y'know, it's been a while

Y'know, it's been a while since I submitted my original querey. But since then, I managed to sit down and sketch out a very useful design for my PVC display. I actually added onto it later in the year! All it took was a trip to Lowe's, a little measuring tape and borrowing a friend's table saw!

I would be happy to share a sketch of the display plus the measurements of my piece if it would help. I could probably take it out of storage and take a few photos of it as well.

xerexes - perhaps this could be an article for the front page? A small "how to" guide for construction and assembly?

e-mail me at if you're interested!

You know this is a convention-must (or at least a mostly-must). Does anyone know of a good how-to on the web for making banners/displaying banners/ etc for convention appearances?
