What Display Type Do I Need?

Retail displays come in all shapes and sizes. Some types of displays are best suited for particular product categories, while others are best for specific retail environments. A spacious club store may have room for a larger setup, while a small convenience store may only allow for low-profile inline displays with smaller footprints.

After accounting for your retail partner’s requirements, you have a few more considerations. A heavier or high-turnover product will need a larger structure that’s sturdy enough to support the products. Likewise, exhibiting several items will require a display with enough room to let each product shine. Space-saving and low-profile display designs usually work best with smaller goods.

Next, you’ll want to consider the locations available within the stores where you want to showcase your products. Some displays are shaped and sized for particular retail locations. Additionally, some areas of the store are known for being particularly effective for sales because they offer high visibility and more foot traffic. To take advantage of these most coveted locations, you’ll need the correct type of display.

The Importance of Speed and Quick Turnaround Time for Custom Displays

The Importance of Speed and Quick Turnaround Time for Custom Displays

In the consumer packaged goods industry, merchandising and marketing move on tight deadlines. To thrive in the retail environment, brands like yours need to develop effective point-of-purchase (POP) retail displays on a faster schedule than ever before. Getting your retail displays on-time helps you get your product to market faster. As marketing campaigns and launch dates change, companies demand tight deadlines from their custom display suppliers.

The process is accelerated if a supplier falls through. Not all suppliers can meet aggressive deadlines or provide top quality service. When that happens, you need a supplier who can swoop in and get your project done right under your urgent time requirements.

At Creative Displays Now, we deliver industry-leading speed, quality and customer service. Our customers rave:

Benefits of Point-of-Sale Displays


What tends to be two of the top concerns for retailers? Whether big or small, regardless of industry or product, no matter what price point you’re at, most retailers agree on the same two issues as being most pressing when it comes to retail success: 

  • getting the most out of every square inch of space in your store
  • maximizing the potential in human buying behaviors

Luckily, you can achieve success in both areas with just one useful, creative tactic: point-of-sale (POS) displays. Point-of-sale displays allow you to best-optimize the time your customers spend while they are otherwise just standing in line, waiting for their turn to check out.
