Pile In Style With Custom Cardboard Dump and Bin Displays

Looking for the perfect way to display smaller items or overstocked goods? Want to de-clutter your floor plan? Custom cardboard dump displays are not only one of the easiest ways to organize items that can’t—or don’t need to be—stacked; they can also be an enticing display in the center of your storefront. Concerned that, when placed in a giant basket, your cardboard bin displays might look more chaotic than chic? Don’t worry…we’ve got the top ideas about how and when to use cardboard dump displays, as well as inside information on how to customize their look to fit your branding.

Dump Bin Display

What To Show Off
When utilizing bin displays, sometimes figuring out which items are best suited to them is a difficult task. Remember that these displays are extra durable, so they’re perfect for heavier and individual items.

Think: bottles of lotion, CDs, water and sports equipment. These dump displays are also the perfect way to give customers the chance to sample smaller items that they might return to buy in bulk later.

Think: individually-wrapped snacks, bottles of nail polish, lip balms, pairs of socks and even school supplies. The idea is to give your customers the chance to “grab and go”—which is why we recommend they be placed close to your registers.

Break It Up
Don’t let the “dump” fool you—it’s actually easy to achieve the clean and streamlined look with custom cardboard bin displays. All you have to do is utilize cardboard dividers to break up the bin into several smaller, more manageable sections. If you’re selling a snack that comes in several different flavors, then organize them individually in the bin. You can even color-coordinate multiple products for an ultra-sleek look.

Use The Space For Marketing
Another great reason to use dump bins to store items? They offer more space than just a tiny label or aisle marker to explain the benefits and uses of the products inside. You can advertise about an individual product, use the space to let customers know about upcoming store events or offers or, of course, take the opportunity to focus on your own brand by adding your logo.

You can also incorporate coupons into the display. Just ask to include a smaller coupon holder that connects to the bin, so your customers have a reason to return to your store. We also recommend displaying information relating to your company—who you are, your mission statement or even satisfied customer reviews are all great marketing opportunities! Don’t let any extra space go to waste.
