How to Choose the Right Corrugated Display Company

Corrugated creative displays and designs are undeniably amazing tools for selling in retail spaces. They help attract attention, set products apart from the competition, and ultimately, if they’re well-designed, can move product. So, how can you ensure your retail display manufacturer will develop a durable display that lasts, has quality imagery and is good value for money?

First and foremost, you need to make sure you’re working with reputable corrugated display manufacturers. We understand the challenges of finding corrugated display companies that produce high-quality, premium displays. That’s why we put together this list — to help you find a retail display manufacturer that’s known for craftsmanship and quality work. So before you order your first (or next) display, be sure the display company you’re partnering with holds the same values and pride in their work that you do in yours.

Top 6 Considerations for Finding Good Corrugated Display Companies

Excellent retail display manufacturers provide high-quality point-of-purchase (POP) displays that can help move product. With the right partner, you can enjoy a display that establishes your brand and encourages purchases. If you want high-quality custom creative displays and designs, there are various factors to consider. Below, we’ve compiled a list of six of these essential features.

1. In-House Experts

There is a time and place that outsourcing makes sense, but when your display company is sending your project off-site to be designed, manufactured and assembled, they (and you) risk losing control of the final outcome. Companies that invest in hiring experts to assist with production have a better chance of ensuring quality results. Experts also can ease the stress you may experience as you’ll have a qualified, knowledgeable, experienced partner to help you along the way.

2. US-Based Manufacturing

Display companies who manufacture on-site or at various locations across the U.S. can better control time, cost and quality. You want your project completed on time and on spec. And the chance of that happening increases when you work with a company that understands the necessity of quality control. Also, you’ll want to look for a display company that owns and operates its own corrugator.

3. Design and Printing Capability

It goes without saying that high-quality printing is a must when it comes to a display that sells. Seek out a company that’s capable of offering more than one option for your printing. Ideally, you would want the choice between litho laminating, flexography (or flexo) or digital printing. Find a company that understands the importance of printing and has experience in color management and creating a captivating structural design to really print and deliver a superior product.

4. Prototyping Capability

Prototyping capability display manufacturing

Be sure to contact a custom retail display manufacturer that gives you the opportunity to try before you buy. Prototype services are important so you can see and approve your display before the manufacturing process begins. Creative Displays Now provides a structural prototype at no extra charge, to confirm sizing is perfect. A physical, full-colored prototype of your display can also be purchased to get an idea of what the display will look like with print. Benefits of quality visual prototype services include confirming that the POP display and design meets your visual and performance standards, reviewing its function, strength and assembly with your staff and narrowing down your choices before you commit to one.

5. Distribution Services

Good corrugated display companies understand that the last step of the process is distribution — and they know this is the most important step of all. A great display company will offer you hand packing with protective methods to keep your materials safe, assembly for retail-ready packaging, and secure, protected product transportation.

6. Sustainability

Corrugated cardboard is among the highest recovered packaging materials available. This makes corrugated retail display manufacturers a great choice to attract eco-conscious consumers. Alongside being easily recycled, corrugated cardboard POP displays are strong and long-lasting, making them a worthy investment. Considering how urgent climate change and global responsibility are today, reducing your carbon footprint with eco-friendly retail displays is an effective value to promote.

When considering the above, finding a retail display manufacturer you can trust can be simple. Understanding the differences between what each can offer is the first step toward working with someone who can see your vision and execute a beautiful, striking, high-quality display that will hold and sell your products.
