Get Creative With Corrugated Cardboard Displays

Looking for a new way to display your products? Corrugated cardboard displays are not only an environmentally- and budget-friendly option, they’re also an ideal blank canvas for any custom design and branding ideas you might have in mind! We’ve pulled together this list of inspiring, and out of the box, cardboard display ideas to help get your creative juices flowing. If you’re especially drawn to a particular idea, feel free to contact us to discuss how to build one for your own product or store.

Build a Tree—Or An Entire Forest!
You’ve seen metal earring “trees” before—but what if you could hang the jewelry your store sells on an actual cardboard tree as a display idea? Why not choose several different colors and sizes and create a cardboard “earring tree forest” on a display table? Customers will love the whimsical idea, and your jewelry won’t get lost on a dull backing shade—instead, it will stand out on a green base.

Make Sure You’re Playing Word Games
Another fun, seasonal idea? Depending on the time of year, or the product you want to feature, why not spell out a word and display your items in three-dimensional letters? For sandals, you could place (organized by size for even more ease) shoes inside individual letters spelling out the word “beach” or “sand.” For water bottles, heart rate monitors or headbands, the word “run” could do the trick. Just be sure to aim for smaller words—you don’t want the display to take up half your floor space!

It Takes A Village To Raise A Child—And To Keep One Entertained In A Store!
Parents are often at a loss about what to do with their children while they’re shopping—a conundrum that can often lead them to choose to do their shopping online as opposed to in-store. Help make things a little easier on parents by reusing old cardboard shipping boxes, or, better yet, creating a display for child-friendly products that kiddos can actually walk through. Display toys inside a cardboard barn, fake police station or post office. Not only will you let children try your products before their parents buy them, you’ll also be encouraging parents to stay and shop inside your store longer by making an interactive display that children can get lost in! Just be sure not to place items that children may choke on in the cardboard displays. Think big blocks, larger toys and action figures or coloring pencils, markers and paper for the kids to draw on while their parents shop the hours away! Trust us: parents will notice you’ve thought of them, and will certainly return to your store when they want to shop in peace.
