Permanent vs. Temporary

Permanent vs. Temporary

Which One should I Choose?



Which type of display do you think is best suited for your particular product?  Would it be a corrugated temporary display, or a permanent custom display?

According to the latest research we have seen, most consumers make their decisions at the actual point of purchase. Slightly over 60% of total purchases are attributed to the retail display as the major promotional element within the store.  Because consumers are “bombarded” with competing information, it is more important than ever to know how to compete for the customer’s dollar.

So, the answer here may just be either one.  The type of retail display that will best make your products sell actually depends more on your products features, your particular program with your retailer, as well as your goals for this particular promotional campaign!

Let me give you a few important features of both to help you decide.


Pros:  Piece Price, Versatile, Durable, Light Weight, Customizable

Corrugated Wallet DisplayCorrugated Book Display

Cons: Price of Cutting Dies Pattern, Somewhat Plain, Looks Inexpensive, Product Weight, More tooling 


Pros: More Impressive, Claims Retail Territory, Used For Years, Unique to Product, Increased Perceived Value of Your Product

Flip flop display


Cons:  Initial Cost, Retail Space is Difficult to Acquire, Periodic Update of  the Appearance, Product Perception May Seem too Expensive

Giving Thanks


The Thanksgiving holiday is rapidly approaching, and there is so much going on, so much to do:  Out of town guests, groceries to buy, meal preparation, cleaning, and shopping.  Most families get together, gorge themselves, find a comfortable couch to relax on, and watch the football game.

“Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare. They are consumed in twelve minutes. The “Half-time” of a football game takes twelve minutes. This is not coincidence.” ~Erma Bombek

At Sharn Enterprises, we are grateful for many things:  Our employees, customers, and vendors.  It’s what makes us who we are, and has allowed us to be in business for 38 years.  With that being said, we are also thankful for our family and friends.  They are our rock; our foundation.   In a sense, we are all one big family.

Yes, it’s easy to get lost in the holiday craziness, and this time of the year is just a reminder to give back, not just now, but all year long, whether through church, or local civic organizations.  It what keeps us grounded.

“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them”.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

So, on behalf of the entire Sharn Family, we would like to wish you and yours a very

Happy Thanksgiving

It’s time to come together………

Well, the election is finally over (whew) thank goodness!

I was really tired of all of those campaign commercials.  How about you?  If you believed even half of them,  given the chance, you probably would have voted for “none of the above”.  The election is history now; it’s time to put the partisanship, and gridlock behind us and move on.

Even though the election tends to highlight the divisiveness in America, we have many common interests.  I believe all of us are concerned with the looming “financial cliff” that we will be facing in January; we are deeply worried about not only our own future, but also the future of our Grandchildren as well.  Concerns for healthcare in our aging population burden us.  The shortage of good paying American jobs worries over 23 million of us, and of course concerns about social issues like immigration, poverty and education are always present.

So, now that the elections over, the question becomes “What do we do now?”  Well, whether your candidate won or not, the first thing to do is to “Get over it”.  You’ve had your chance to express yourself through voting.  Government changes occurred this week, not with civil unrest and bloodshed, as in some countries, but rather by you and me going to the polls and peacefully expressing our preferences.  We have also elected a number of other Federal, State and local officials who also now represent us.

Congratulate them, pray for them, but most of all, continue to make your concerns known to them.  I believe a society gets the type of Government they deserve.  So, don’t just vote and quit, rather vote and continue to participate in the process by making your concerns known to those whom you have just  elected.

To make it easier for you to do this, I’m placing two links below.  One is for the White House, while the other is for Congress.  These folks have recently have been asking for your vote, it’s time for you to really tell them what’s on your mind.

The Sharn Advantage

Why you should choose Sharn for your product display needs

Because of our 35 years of experience in the POP  industry, we can provide your business with more economical ways to manufacture displays.  This results in lower costs to you, while giving you exactly what you want to promote to your brand.

While we realize that cost is an important factor, so is maximizing the space that your retailer allows you to have.  Because your display will be custom-made for your specific product, it will allow for the maximum amount of items in the smallest space possible, which in turn will yield a positive return on investment (ROI).   

Sharn offers free design assistance as well as nominally priced prototyping services.  We offer a wide array of materials, and eye-popping colors, in every size imaginable.  All displays are manufactured in our plant, and custom-made specifically for you.  Obviously, you won’t get that with “standard” stock displays.

Your display will arrive in as little as 3 to 4 weeks.   You can also order smaller quantities of what you need, resulting in less investment, and less time on your part.

We are a proud U.S. manufacturer, and a “privately owned” company who can offer you unique flexibility regarding lead times, pricing and terms.  Sharn is “Made in the USA” at its finest.

Give us a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
