Using A 360 Angle Display

April 4th, 2011

Some stores choose to display their items across the walls of the store. This makes a lot of sense, as customers are able to walk in the middle empty space and choose which display interests them the most. Retail display could be creatively set up. But the basics stay the same. You have to make the products the focus, and make it easy for the customer to reach, glance, and feel the product. However, not all stores are located between walls. In malls and airports, some of the most successful businesses were not even stores. They were kiosks and stands that attracted customers as they walked by. That is when store displays get creative. Selling in a 360 angle environment allows for a unique display of jewelry or watches (or anything else you would need a display for). Airports enjoy the constant foot traffic and can have their display set up in a way that has the most prominent products angles towards the food court, or waiting area – wherever people are sitting and waiting. It’s a unique opportunity for many retailers that have the advantage of a constant customer base. Selling in a complete circulatory environment can be a great asset. You just need the right display for it.

Creative Jewelry Display Ideas

March 7th, 2011

When you showcase your products you want them to stand out. You want their actual display to represent the uniqueness of the products themselves. That’s why when creating jewelry showcases you should always combine the reliability of a traditional display, with the creative touches that influenced the pieces. Remember, you can change the displays according to the seasons, holidays, special events or just to get a new vibe in your store. Here are some ideas for you to try out:

Start with traditional and elegant jewelry tower.

Then, fill it with special holders, trays or colorful plates that will go well with the jewelry pieces you’re presenting. Here’s an example:

The most common natural elements that are used in jewelry displays are wooden pieces. But try to add some dry leaves (especially during the fall season). Leaves have so many colors and can add that classic look to your store display. You want to try something completely new? Go local! Find something that makes your neighborhood or city unique. Add local elements to your display and see how your jewlery display suddenly becomes relevant.

Some stores create a store-wide display, making the customer walk through a story during their visit. Think about taking a children story like Alice in Wonderland, and applying it to your store. place pictures of the characters and divide your store display according to the story. You can do this with many different themes and with any theme, you’re creating an experience for your customer. And customers remember that for a long time.

Add School Spirit With Trophy Showcases

February 28th, 2011

trophy showcasesSchool spirit is heavily dependent on its athletic program. In the same way that a city without a sports teams or a winning sports team will not take itself seriously, neither will a school without a good athletics program.

There are different avenues to take if you want to amplify school spirit. One would be to invest in good coaches. Cultivate a youth sports league in the neighborhood. And invest in trophy showcases. Empty trophy showcases are saddening. They will make your students want to contend and fill it up. Winning a district or state championship is difficult, but afterwards the student body will never be the same. A sense of pride will pervade the halls even if there’s just one trophy in the glass showcases. Because there will eventually be another.

A good way to build support for the team is to have pep rallies, assemblies that showcase a comical burlesque act.  A break from the monotony of classroom education is a great way to rile up the students and remind them to support their team during after hours. With the student body behind them, your teams will surely bring in trophies to fill your new trophy showcases.

Showcase My Baseball Cards

February 21st, 2011

showcaseGlass showcases make a big difference in the presentation of your goods. They are clean, professional, and well-lit. One of the definitions of showcase is “a setting in which anything may be displayed to best advantage.” Throughout all of the definitions, the word that keeps popping up is “advantage,” as in if you showcase your products, it will give you a big advantage over others that haven’t showcased their products.

I dream of one day setting up a showcase for my baseball cards, not necessarily to sell them, but rather to show them off. I have Mickey Mantles, Ted Wiliiams, Derek Jeters, and Ken Griffey Jrs. I’d value the entire collection at around ten thousand dollars. Right now they’re sitting in a black box, hidden from sunlight. Since some of them are antiques, I guess it’s good to keep them out of sunlight, but other than that, I think it’s about time to start showing them off. Ideally I’d like to give them to my grandchildren, but it’s no fun to hide them as though they are taboo. If I invest in  glass showcases, everyone will be able to admire them. And priceless as they are, that will give the cards the advantage they deserve.

Show off. We all like attention, and we all like to flaunt our goods every now and then. Do it the right way.

Because memories are precious enough. These relics of our past help us to keep us alive. Besides memories, the moment is all we have. So seize your goods, and store them up, protecting these personal valuables from the decay of time. That way you can store your memories safely.

The Two Sides To Streamline Showcases

There are two sides to Streamline Showcases: retail displays and the glass showcase. Let’s talk about the former first.

Retail displays are necessary if you sell anything of value. They help to protect your items from theft, damage and any other kind of loss. They are especially helpful if you need a jewelry showcase or a showcase for priceless items like antiques, china, or coins. There are many different styles from which you can choose if you want to draw your customer’s eyes to a specific product.

The glass showcase can be used for more personal items. If you have a valuable collection of family heirlooms that you want to preserve while displaying them you can choose one of these trophy cases and feel good about the safety of your precious items. Everything from sports memorabilia to ivory carvings will look good when protected in glass. Much better than stowing away these items in a dark box, no?

So if you have any concerns about objects worth protecting, streamline showcases are just the thing to help you relax. To inquire about or choose from a particular glass showcase, visit our site, where you can find an exact specification to your needs.

The Proper Way To Organize A Jewelry Showcase

January 24th, 2011

jewelWhen setting up your jewelry to go in display, there’s a few different things you’ll need to keep in mind. The arrangement of the display is going to either work for or against you in selling your pieces.  No matter what jewelry showcase you use, you need to know how to set things up inside.

First, you are going to want to pad the shelves, especially if you are placing pieces directly onto the surface as opposed to hanging on stands or kept in boxes. A nice velvet material is a popular choice and easy to come by. This will make sure no stones or materials get scratched, especially if constantly removing and replacing the jewelry.

Secondly, you don’t want to clutter your shelf with too much for the eye to take in. Choose pieces careful and organize them either by designer, stone type, or metal. You can also organize them by separate types; rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and so on.

Last, you want to showcase your best pieces either in the store fixtures near the front window to entice buyers or near the cash wrap. Always have employees ready to show off the pieces should anyone ask.  Being able to handle jewelry always means a better chance of buying.

Safety Comes with Sturdy Store Displays

January 17th, 2011

broken-ornament1Anyone who has worked in a retail environment with something fragile can tell you how nerve wracking it is. I’ve worked in stores with glass ornaments, snow globes, and figurines that would break with a gust of wind. It was tough working in a particular area with fragile materials because it stressed me out, trying to constantly be on watch and keep people from touching too much. And when something did break, it was an ordeal. I had to call over another co-worker to watch the mess and warn people not to step in glass while I got a broom and dustpan to clean it up. Not a single part of it was without worry.

But if you find yourself in the same situation, Sturdy Store Displays are exactly what your store may need. First, they are going to keep your items better organized. But they are also going to keep them inside a glass case that won’t be touched my customers.  This can leave the ability to show off fragile items to the employee only, who will be a lot more aware of how to treat a certain piece. This also keeps accidentally bumping into things a non-existent issue.

A glass showcase will take the stress off your shoulders as you won’t have to worry about you or anyone else getting hurt, or the damaging on valuable merchandise. It’s a win/win situation!

Streamline Showcases for Your Collectibles

January 10th, 2011

buffyGlass showcases don’t have to be just for stores. If you are someone who loves to collect things, like sports memorabilia or statues, a glass showcase may be just the thing you need.

I myself have a few statues, of the geeky variety. I have several busts and a couple of cool Electric Tiki Buffy the Vampire Slayer statues that are my pride and joy. Right now they just sit on an open shelf, so I’ve been seriously considering a glass showcase to keep them safe.  No one wants to spend that much money on something, only for it to be broken.

A square or hexagonal Freedom Tower  display would be perfect for anyone who has multiple pieces to display like myself.  Think of how awesome your signed Yankee baseballs would look all in a row. Or maybe you like collecting period pieces, like Egyptian statues.

The great thing about the towers is they have enough storage to hold everything, or to encourage you to keep on collecting. They also are incredibly sturdy so you don’t have to worry about the cat knocking everything over.

Investing in display cases is a smart way to show off your prized possessions without the worry of them losing their value or getting destroyed.

The Cash Wrap: The Hub of the Store

January 3rd, 2011

sturdy store displayAs your customers are busy browsing your retail displays, chances are high that most employees can be found circling near the cash wrap. Well, it’s good that your employees are anxious to ring someone up, but are they really waiting or are they just all hanging out together? I used to work in a retail store and the cash wrap was literally the “hub” of the store. Everyone would converse there and chitchat. Naturally, most of us got yelled at and were told to disperse. Then when I became Assistant Manager, I was the one getting frustrated and telling everyone to move away.

Train your employees to watch the cash wrap, but not to just stand there the entire time. I’m sure there are plenty of store fixtures to straighten up, merchandise that needs to be put out, and of course, customers that need help. Sturdy Store Displays sells plenty of cash wrap counters to store either supplies or more merchandise. They have corner counters, as well as full wrap-around counters. But after installing and stocking them, keep a watchful eye on the employees and make sure it doesn’t become your store’s next hang out spot.
