Point-of-Purchase Signs and Graphics that Drive Brand Awareness and Increase Sales- Part I

Posted by Jim Hollen on Mar 5, 2019 2:30:00 PM

Point-of-purchase signs and graphics are critical components of effective point-of-sale merchandising and sales generation. Without them it is extraordinarily difficult to create the level of brand awareness necessary to compete in the busy world of brick-and-mortar retailing, particularly if you are an emerging brand or find yourself trying to survive in an intensely competitive product category. The focus of today’s post is to share more than 15 examples of different types and treatments of POP signs and graphics so as to create a universe of possibilities to consider when you embark on your next retail display project. It’s worth noting that our examples do not represent an exhaustive set of possibilities. We’ve tried to focus on relatively common and highly manufacturable treatments. We deliberately excluded a number of perfectly good approaches like foil stamped signs with embossing in favor of more mainstream treatments. In Part II of this blog series we will cover 9 more sign categories and 13 more example so we hope you will explore that post as well.

Point of Purchase Displays- 11 Examples of How to Use PVC to Create Effective Retail Merchandisers

Posted by Jim Hollen on Dec 11, 2018 2:30:00 PM

The most common materials used to create point of purchase displays are metal, wood, and plastic. Within the category of plastics, the most common types are acrylic, PVC, vacuum formed plastic and injection molded plastic. Vacuum formed and injection molded plastics require an upfront investment in molds and are therefore most commonly used for larger production runs that allow for the mold cost to be amortized across the larger number of units produced. Acrylic and PVC are typically manufactured in 4’x8’ sheets of varying thicknesses. Acrylic is considered a higher-end material and is more expensive than PVC, but it has the advantage of being available in clear which enables better product visibility.

Posted by Jim Hollen on Nov 13, 2018 2:30:00 PM

In today’s blog, we’ll look at 10 recent examples in which we used different types of materials to create POP displays that are affordable, functional, and effective from a merchandising standpoint. We get a lot of questions from customers and prospects regarding the best materials to use so we thought it would be helpful to show a variety of examples of how different materials can be used. The answer as to what materials are best to use in creating your POP display can be summed up in two words: it depends. It depends on durability requirements, aesthetic objectives, functionality goals, holding capacity, store décor considerations, budget availability, project timing, and much more. Let’s look at some practical day-to-day examples of POP displays to see what materials we used and how we used them.

How Customizing Stock POP Displays Can Help You Avoid the Impact of Tariffs

Posted by Jim Hollen on Oct 9, 2018 2:30:00 PM

We’ve recently heard a lot of concern about tariffs on POP displays manufactured in China. The current 10% tariff is inclusive of all of the HTS codes that are typically used to import POP displays from China. On January 1st, tariffs are expected to increase to 25%, which will certainly have a greater impact on display manufacturers who manufacture in China as well as their customers who are likely to see price increases.

Muhammad Ali and the Value of Incorporating Storytelling in Your POP Display

Posted by Jim Hollen on Sep 18, 2018 2:30:00 PM

It started with an elementary school writing assignment. I was probably 8 years old. Our teacher asked us to write a poem about someone we admired. I still remember the opening lines of my poem. It went like this: “There once was a boxer named Cassius Clay, Muhammad Ali as he would say.” It was my way of introducing one of the most famous sports heroes of all time. The poem chronicled Ali’s triumphant victory in which he won the World Heavyweight title in an epic fight with Joe Frazier. I still remember the beginning of the final stanza of the poem: “In the 15th round Ali saw, an open path to Frazier’s jaw.”
