Picture Flap uses retro analog technology – turning the page past digital displays. Each display is custom built and catered to your desired images, frame color, orientation, and function providing you with a one-of-a-kind display. Our Picture Flap Displays are modularly designed in 12”x12” or 9”x9” units and can be combined to form any shape. Grabbing attention in retail spaces, art galleries, marketing installations, hotel lobbies, and more – just got easier.
Picture Flap in Action
Designed and Built in Philadelphia
Every Picture Flap Display is built by hand for your specific project. Oat Foundry’s team of engineers design every Picture Flap in our shop in Philadelphia — from locally sourced sheet metal and PCB design to the mesmerizing analog function. This allows us to offer a wide variety of sizes and customizations while maintaining the highest levels of quality control. Your display will be shipped directly to you – ready for on-site assembly.
As members of the Philadelphia Zero Waste Partnership, we produce every Picture Flap Display with the environment in mind. Monthly commercial waste reports, composting, sustainable product purchasing, and donating excess stock allow us to take pride in each display we ship out the door and feed a sustainable production environment. We always look toward sustainable technology to foster a healthy planet and to continue innovating for many years to come.
The possibilities are endless with our Picture Flap Displays. We have worked with a range of industries – each use is special in its own way. How will you use Picture Flap? Check out our inspiration document to get your creative juices flowing!

Using the WebApp, you can program images to run on a schedule throughout the day or even all day! With this, you can set it and forget it, Picture Flap will know to rotate through the images you set in place. You can create and save any number of scheduled queues.
Picture Flap has the ability to flip through images using different flip styles. Users can choose from a number of animations such as the basic Left to Right or more complex animations like Matrix and Snake Down.
Change images on your schedule
Our Picture Flap Displays are customizable, even when you have them installed in your space. Updated portfolio? New product line? Replace your existing flaps for a brand new set to have a fully refreshed sign with all new content. Recycle those old flaps! Our clients typically swap out their artwork every six months or once per year.
We offer two module sizes:
12×12″ = 20 Flaps
9×9″ = 30 Flaps
Displays have a Cat5e or Cat6 Ethernet port and connect to a router. It can be accessed via the local wifi network or via a nano router that generates a local signal.
Displays are typically built in any number of columns (across) and rows (down) but can also be oriented in other polygonal shapes like a plus sign or pyramid.
Displays operate on 110-220V power depending on the size. Displays can also accommodate international standards.
Each flap is digitally printed on rigid plastic with your choice of high-resolution images. If you decide to update the images on your flaps, the old flaps are recyclable.
Displays can be installed on a wall, from a ceiling, or from a freestanding mount. They can also be recessed into walls or placed into frames.
