Hula Hoop POP PrePack

Hula Hoop Point-of-Purchase PrePack CloseUp

Hula Hoop Temporary Point-of-Purchase Retail PrePack

Hula Hoop Point-of-Purchase PrePack CloseUpThe box these Hula Hoops ship in easily converts to this freestanding temporay point-of purchase floor display. Simple but clever given the space otherwise required to display Hula Hoops in normal retail like the Gondola and Pegboard seen beyond. The carton automatically conveys that there are different diameters for different size and age Hula Hoopers. I’m not sure this was the case when I was young. I think then it was one size fits all.

Skull and Swissted Rock Posters as Fitting Room Reading Material

Skull and Swissted Rock Posters DetailI’m not sure if you consider this light or heavy reading material for the Fitting Room, but the skull did add an edgy feel, while the rock poster book a slightly artsy tone. But don’t make your fitting room amenities too interesting or involving or you’ll reduce turnover and slow try-ons and sales. For example Fitting Room Jigsaw Puzzles might be counter-productive. CLICK the thumbnail to get up close and friendly with the red skull, and scan the book title and cover description.

IKEA® Stair as Staging

Stair as Staging Main Combo

Luckily this prop stairway probably would hold the weight of a child, while adults would be unlikely to be tempted to climb. The safety warning is small and out of the way, but even at a glance the IKEA® staging does not seem to lead anywhere enticing. A great visual merchandising concept for the desk-in-a-nook concept. Bur nervous Nelly that I am, I might have roped off the stair and hung a warning at waist height just in case. CLICK the gallery for a series of zooms.

IKEA® Step-Stool Staging

Stool and Step Sales at IKEA Main

Stool and Step Sales at IKEA SideviewA combo of three standing fixed, and three hung folding step stools has the visual mass to attract attention, and the ability to communicate finish, function, carry handle and storage benefits. I see many ladder and step stool displays, but all are seemingly for mass merchandising. This IKEA staging is less crass commercialism. CLICK the thumbnail for alternate view.

Top-Shelf Step Stools

Top Shelf Step Stools Main

Top Shelf Step Stools DetailEvery item has its day in the sone in retail. Like these Step Stools elevated to top-shelf status. And having an existing thread on Ladders and Step Ladders, my OCPD requires that I document this variation regardless of distinction or lack thereof. Humor me. And do visit the Ladders Index Page and Pinterest Board. I think you will find at least a few unusual posts to contrast with this one.

Apple-esque Literature Nest®

Nest Hinged Literature Holder Main All

Staff from Apple® leap to the fore to create a paradigm-shifting auto-regulating thermostat to fill an obviousl need. Even I hate my complex-to-program thermostat and long for a Nest®. At first glance their literature holder may seem ordinary, But low and behold it too offers more, by hinging to swing up. I’m not sure the full advantage, but it might be more forgiving of sideswipes, and would swing out of the way if positioned above shelf items. CLICK through the gallery of images for a better look. Pay particular attention to the mounting tabs in the last frame.

If you have multiple pamphlets on a complicated product line, how might you organize and offer?

Yes the literature offer is recessive, but in this case should be to allow maximum outreach by the items themselves. CLICK through the gallery to engage from various distances. See that pamphlet title were designed specifically to be visible when used in this display and are offered in multiple languages.

Circular Hold-Down Bar

Circular Hold-Down Bar Main 2

Literature Hold-down Bar CompositeCirculars, flyers and Sunday Newspaper inserts are often printed on the lightest weight papers to save on the massive quantities required and delivery weight. The slightest breeze or daft from passing customer can set such promotional materials aflutter and aloft. This Circular Literature Rack employs a Hold Down Bar to keep circulars in place and well-displayed. With the decline in print as a media, this Hold Down harkens back to a bygone advertising age. But effective enough here to merit special design and fixture attention.

Grid Hook Anchor in Chrome

Grid Hook With Bottom Backplate Anchor Main

Hooks designed for 3″ and 4″ Open Wire Grid are often designed with Backplate bottom anchors to reduce the chance a hook is jostled off the display. Many manufacturers have their own preferred design. A full service manufacturer can make any and all. But it is rarely the manufacturer who can tell you which is best for you. All the more reason to ask for samples and test, even informally, in your environment. I found this bottom anchor interesting, as well as the strict right-angle inside of the top lugs. Remember that well-equipped manufacturers can also provide Safety Ball-End Tips to the frontwire, reducing retail risk. CLICK the gallery for various views and angles.

Grid Hook Anchor in Yellow

Grid Hook in Yellow Flat Metal Backplate

Compare and contrast this design with “Grid Hook Anchor in Chrome” for a hint at the range of solutions from various manufacturers. The straight Backplate Bottom allows quicker mount. The sloped angle of the wrap-over top lug encourages the hook to seat itself on a broader range of Grid wire diameters. A Scan Hook offering, both lower Product and upper Scan Arm Frontwires are made from a single wireform. Label Holder is of the trendy Frip Front design. The Rabbit Ear ICC helps forward the merchandise and mark re-order points . Yellow powdercoat makes this visually perky, and Eco-friendlier than Chrome. CLICK the Gallery for assorted views.

Grid Hook in All-Wire White

Grid Hook in White All Wire

Grid Hooks in wire just might save you money. All Wire Hooks can be manufactured on a single piece of equipment in a single process. All elements are fed, bent, cut and welded at a single station. Grid (and other hooks) with Flat Metal Backplates, require a separate metal stamping operation. Frontwire assemblies are also made separately. Both must be merged in a final combining step. If there is an All Wire version of a hook type you need at least price it. It might be your lowest cost solution. This All Wire Grid Hook sports a Flip Front Label Holder and environmentally friendly White Powdercoat.

Shelf Jog Change Order

Shelf Jog Main

Shelf Jog AuxThis Shelf Jog looked so stylish that I am certain it was part of the design. But then again having been through construction and remodeling projects, I am familiar with the ebb and flow of decision making and paperwork and “mission creep,” particularly with my wife.

Miter Outside Corner Endcap

Mitre Corner Endcap Shelf Main

The Miter corners of this Endcap ease the visual severity while still fitting in with the rectilinearity of store fittings overall. The miter also visually encourages traffic to flow around a bit more that a traditional squared Endcap. I suspect depth is sized for the range of Gondola Base Caps expected in this retail channel. Individually tiers stepped back on each shelf make a better impression when fully stocked … see the corner-view detail in the Gallery below.

Miter Inside Corner Wood Shelf

Mitre Inside Corner Shelf Main.jpg

Mitre Inside Corner Shelf AuxIf the inside corners of perimeter shelf runs seem a bit dead to you, it is because they are. Jammed in from two straight-run sides, items at a right-angle corner can be visually overpowered. This inside-corner Shelf Miter in wood improves corner merchandising … a lot … via simple upgrade. The contrasting metal Front Productstops are unique too. CLICK the thumbnail for an angled view.

Label Strip Miter Embedded

Embedded in the surface of wood shelves, this Label Strip is mitered to make the corners and enclose the entire display. The recessed surface makes for a more finished display but if you look closely, dirt seems to be easily trapped beneath the window.

Rhinestone Hamburger

Hunger for Rhuinstone Hamburger Main'

Rhinestone Hamburger as Jewelry Attention Compeller

Hunger for Rhuinstone Hamburger FrontI assumed Rhinestones were used for this intricate piece, surely not diamonds … too tacky …. and not a Swarovski-esque style. Far too large for personal wear, and without carry handle or shoulder strap can’t be a bejeweled handbag bag. No matter what, it was a traffic stopper. Maybe a personal gift whipped up for red-headed “Red” of Wendy’s® fame

Insects as In-Store Insecticide Icons and Navigation Aid

Insects as Insecticide IconA good end of summer navigation marker for household and garden insect defense. Just don’t make your Insect Icons too, too cute. You don’t want to imply that the remedy will harm cute beneficial bugs like Lady Bugs. Coackroach icons would be motivational but ugly and scary. How about Ants. Just the right combination of “keep em out” but no need to “Nuke” em. CLICK the thumbnail for a broader departmental view.
