What is Material for Banner?

Point of sale displays are an essential marketing tool used in all retails stores for a range of products, by not using them brands are missing a huge opportunity to encourage buyers and therefore increase sales. These displays aim to attract the attention of customers and alert them to current promotions, offers and deals and encourage them to buy the products that are on display.

The most important or one of the most important things to remember when setting up point of sale displays is their positioning, if the positioning is wrong, the chance of the display encouraging sales is low. The idea is to position the displays on, next to or near to the till, this way, while the customer is waiting and thinking about paying they will see the products that are on display and be more likely to buy them, after all, these displays are designed to encourage impulse buying. Products that are placed on shelves amongst many other products are less likely to be picked up if a shopper was not initially planning on buying them, so the likelihood of impulse buying is increased when a product stands out. Often the products on these displays are smaller, cheaper items that people will pick up and not need to think twice about purchasing, or they are new products that people may see and want to try, so the displays are used to improve awareness of the product. But whatever the product on display, the goal is to grab the attention of customers in the hope that they will make some last minute purchases.

So we know that the main benefit of point of sale displays is product exposure, through these displays customers will be made aware of new products, informed of offers or deals on existing products and even reminded of older products that are perhaps easily forgotten about when they are simply stacked on regular shelves amongst many other products.

Another excellent benefit of point of sale displays is an increased aesthetic appeal, by creating an aesthetically pleasing display customers will be more attracted to the products that are on display and therefore will be more likely to buy them. If a products display looks good it will also look to be of a high quality, the chance of customers then wanting to buy the product will be higher than if a products display is dull or ugly. As the only way these displays will work is if they grab the customer’s attention, it is vital that they are well designed, stylish and eye-catching. It is also crucial that the displays contain any important information about the product, such as brand, pricing and any details of offers etc. If this information is not clear and easy for the customer to read, the chances of sales increasing are lowered.

A combination of an eye-catching design and the correct positioning of a point of sale display can be a great way of promoting and marketing products and therefore increasing sales, if you ensure that your display ticks all the boxes then it should be a very simple way of reaching out to your customers and encouraging them to make more purchases, which can only be a good thing!

There are another few materials that can be used for Point of sale displays such as:

Corrugated Card Board

Corrugated cardboard is the packing material of choice for many brands and industries. Its high-tech construction ensures the material can carry a wide range of weights, protects against moisture and provides sustainable packaging solutions. Furthermore, corrugated cardboard is highly customizable and very cost effective. Corrugated cardboard is made from arched paper known as fluting. It’s a fairly high-tech solution that uses advanced computer design and manufacturing systems. It’s this design that makes corrugated cardboard the best choice for many packaging designers.

PVC Foam Board

PVC Foam Board is an innovative cellular board with a hard, smooth surface manufactured through Inteplast’s unique celuka process. Because PVC Foam board is waterproof, lightweight, and does not splinter, it is an excellent alternative to wood. PVC Foam board is used in signage, arts, crafts, and for interior and exterior building materials. PVC Foam Board is manufactured by utilizing a combination of expanded polyvinyl chloride (EPVC) and wood flour. The addition of wood flour in the formulation offers greater stability to the PVC sheet and a denser composition which provides greater “pull-out” strength when using fasteners. It also creates a tan, wood-like color. PVC Foam board is designed to replace wood in housing construction and other wood applications. PVC Foam board can be cut, machined, nailed, glued, and screwed just like wood. The panels can be finished with a quality primer or paint. They are fire resistant, and exhibit superior machining qualities when compared to wood.

White Paper Foam Board

White paper foam board is a strong and lightweight material that is easily cut with a sharp craft knife or picture framing mat cutter. It is commonly used for the mounting of prints and photographs and as backing in picture frames. White paper foam board is easily formed into shapes that can be used for interior design and architectural models. White paper foam board usually consists of three layers, an inner layer of polystyrene foam that is clad with an outer facing on each side of either white clay coated paper or common brown Kraft paper.

Poly Methyl Methacrylate (Acrylic)

One of the most common thermoplastics is acrylic. The chemical name for it is poly methyl methacrylate (PMMA). PMMA was invented in 1933 by Otto Rohm, the founder of the plastics company Rohm and Haas. Rohm tried to create a lamination between two glass plates to increase the glass resistance, but instead he found that he had developed a completely new glass-like material. Acrylic sheets are easy to glue and are good for milling, bending and hot forming and is therefore a material suitable for many different applications. The material became available for commercial use in 1936 under the protected trademark Plexiglas.

Corrugated PP Board

Corrugated PP Board or PP flute board is available in eye catching, attractive colors and shades. PP flute board is printable available both in Matt & Glossy finish. PP flute board is reusable due to better hinge strength and stiffness, hence more economical. Corrugated PP board can be replaced in place of cardboard corrugated boxes due its toughness, and low weight even than wood which enables savings on Freight. Besides, cushioning Corrugated PP board has an excellent bursting and punctures resistance. Being thermoplastic PP flute board is waterproof, resistant to chemical and heat, free from fungus and termites. Easy to process, cut, bend, stitch, staple, print and handle. PP flute board is made of melted blended Polypropylene copolymer and extruded in monoblock. There are upper wall and lower wall, and partition in between. It features light-weight, durability, high impact, anti-frost, and reusable.
