Creating Impulse Sales with an Effective T Shirt Display- Part I

Posted by Jim Hollen on May 12, 2016 2:30:00 PM

You probably know the story of brothers Bert and John Jacobs who started a T-shirt business after graduating from college. They sold their t-shirts out of their van, in college dorms, and at street fairs. After 5 ½ years they had just $78 in the bank. It was at that point they decided that our country was in a national funk driven largely by negative media messaging. That insight led them to create a t-shirt with positive messaging: Life is Good. They printed 48 Life is Good T-shirts, took them to a street fair, and sold out within the first hour. They went on to build a $100 million company that sells t-shirts, hats, apparel and other items online and in 4500 retail stores. Yes, the T-shirt industry is big business. In this first of a two-part series, we’ll discuss why in-store merchandising of t-shirts is becoming increasingly important.  We’ll also review a number of conventional but relatively ineffective ways to display t-shirts. Then in our next blog, we’ll share what we think are better, more visual appealing more ways to display t-shirts, and we’ll discuss how the right t shirt display can help to drive impulse sales.

Point of Purchase Design for Convenience Stores- Part I

Posted by Jim Hollen on Apr 12, 2016 2:30:00 PM

We had an opportunity to leverage our point of purchase design experience to improve the merchandising effectiveness in a growing chain of convenience stores in the Northeast. The primary advantage that this chain had over its competition was store size. Its stores average 4500 square feet compared to less than half of that for its competitors. Because of their larger format stores, they viewed Wal-Mart and dollar stores as their direct competition in addition to their smaller format convenience store rivals.

POP Retail Displays Built for Configurability and Modularity

Posted by Jim Hollen on Mar 24, 2016 2:30:00 PM

We are big fans of POP retail displays that are designed to be highly configurable and modular. There is huge benefit in designing a basic display that can accommodate a variety of accessories in order to meet specific retailer needs or product requirements. While we could share dozens of examples, we thought today we would just focus on 1 display we designed that can be configured in multiple ways. We’ll look at just 4 variations although there are many more possibilities.

If you have a high-end product and are looking to create a POP retail display to go on the counter, on a shelf, or in a display case, you might want to consider creating a custom display box to showcase your product. In some cases, these display boxes can also function as the product packaging. In other cases, the display box can simply be used as a merchandising vehicle, and the product can be sold or shipped in its own box. In today’s blog, we’ll share some details about a high-end display box we created for a perfume brand House of Sillage that retails or $1000 a bottle.
