From Beginning to End: How We Create Your Custom Display


Creating a custom display from start to finish is an exciting, yet difficult task for a designer and a manufacturer.  Unlike a stock display store, Sharn Enterprises, Inc. builds custom displays out of various American materials and is a one-stop shop, with everything made in-house and on-site.

That is where our American made promise comes in.  Everything manufactured in our plant is Made-in-America, which helps support the local economy and provide jobs here on U.S. soil rather than overseas.  Many people also feel that American made products are of the highest quality.

That’s why we here at Sharn wanted to give you a little bit more insight on how we handle a custom display project.

Although every experience with a new or current client is different, these are the usual steps taken in order to complete a custom point-of-purchase display made just for you and your products.

Consult

A customer might have a design in mind for their custom display, or have no idea at all!  And that’s quite alright, because our designers have the experience to come up with a design idea that reflects your brand. After an initial call, we usually schedule a meeting with you to get a better idea about what you are looking for.

Shaking Hands

Conceptualize

After a meeting (either in person, Skype, or on the phone), a designer will come up with a few different display concepts according to the client’s specifications. We know you have a budget, and the designer will keep that in mind when choosing types of material and the kinds of customization required.  We use the latest AutoCAD software to create your display and render it out to make it look like it will in-store.

Estimate

After a client decides which custom display they like for their brand, we will estimate the cost of the display based on the quantities he/she may be looking to order. More often than not, the more displays ordered, the more the price per display will go down.  Below is an example of a quote we will send for your approval.

Prototype

Now this is the fun part.  You actually get to see your display come to life!  We manufacture your prototype in-house and then ship it to you so you can see it in person.  Does it reflect your brand?  Does it catch your eye?  Is it everything you hoped for and dreamed of? If we don’t get it right the first time, we will revise.

Re-Engineer & Build

Sometimes your prototype is exactly what you are looking for. Other times, it needs a few revisions.  And that’s okay.  We want your display to be perfect!   If you are looking for a nip there and a tuck there, we will redesign and re-prototype until both parties reach a mutual agreement.

As you can see here, three different designs were prototyped until an agreement was met.

Make Decisions

You decide on the display concept and prototype and place your order with us.  You choose what quantity are you looking for and when the you need the project needs to be completed by.  Our manufacturing plant starts producing your parts and puzzle is almost finished.

Ship

When we say we are a one-stop shop, we mean it!   We fabricate a custom box for your display along with an instruction sheet for whoever is putting together the display in-store.  Once you let us know your date, the display will be ready to be filled with your product.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2015


Each year, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday.  It is a day to promote equal rights for all Americans, regardless of their background.  We recognize this day because MLK was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement and he successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law.

The most prominent leader in the movement to end racial segregation in the United States, he was also the youngest man to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.  There are a few things you also might not know about MLK.

Did you know Martin Luther King Jr. also…

  1. Changed his name from Michael?
  2. Started college at the age of 15?
  3. Got a C in public speaking?
  4. Was the first African American “Man of the Year”?
  5. Loved Star Wars?
  6. Was arrested almost 30 times?
  7. Is globally revered?

Martin-Luther-King-Day

Martin Luther King is known for his “I Have a Dream Speech” but he also once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?’”

MLK Day is also known throughout the United States as a day of volunteering and service. This tradition was started by former Pennsylvania Congressman John Lewis, also a significant advocate of human rights in the 1960’s.   The day challenges Americans to transform the King Holiday into a day of citizen action and volunteer service in honor of Dr. King.  So, if your New Year’s resolution includes helping out others, Martin Luther King Jr. Day also might be the best day to kick your year off right.

As we begin 2015, it would be good to remember the words of another advocate for human rights:

Day of Service

“There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why?  I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

-Robert Kennedy

And that’s exactly what Martin Luther King Jr. did.

Personal & Business Resolutions: 7 Ways To Reach Your Goal


Deciding what kind of resolution to make at the beginning of the New Year is not an easy task.   One might even decide not to make a resolution because they know they will break it right off the bat!  But this year…This year is going to be different.

You have to dive in head first, and the first step is to really reflect on what you want to achieve and not let yourself fall off the wagon.  Because what really is a resolution?  It’s a solution to a problem you are trying to fix.

Reach-goals

Your resolution may be to lose weight, get a promotion or maybe just to spend more time with your family.  But achieving a goal like any of the former isn’t an easy feat.  My mother always told me a good piece of advice when trying to reach a goal, “You can’t rise to the top of the ladder without hitting a few rungs.”

That’s why, whether a business or personal New Year’s resolution, take these things consideration.

Make a plan of success

Think about your resolution carefully and write down the steps you will need to take to reach your goal.  For example, if your goal is a promotion, maybe decide to stay later at work to complete a new project or  set a goal to finish your to-do list every single day.  Coming up with a plan will allow you to see the future and what is next in your professional and personal life.

Resolutions

Set realistic expectations

Let’s say you want to lose weight. You can’t set your goal to lose 100 pounds because you will not see results quick enough.  That is why making mini-goals for yourself is a must.  Try setting a goal for 2-3 pounds each week, which is healthy, and actually do-able.  You will be more likely stick to the program if you see the small results, rather than having that 100 pound huge number looming in the back of your mind.

Write down your resolution, EVERYWHERE!

Keep a reminder in your phone, write your resolution with a dry erase marker on your mirror, or keep a post-it note in your purse.  These constant reminders will keep you from forgetting the goal, especially during a time where you feel as though you need extra motivation.

Don’t look back

As easy as it may be, do not fall back into the same patterns you were in before. Success rarely comes from comfort zones!

But forgive yourself

If you fall off the wagon and are unmotivated one day, don’t let that discourage you from your success. Everyone has off days, but it’s the people that power through the hard times that reach their goal.

Celebrate

Once you hit your target or maintain your resolution, whether it happens in weeks or a year from now; treat yourself to something you love to do. Having a reward to look forward to gives you an extra boost of encouragement and keeps you on the right track.
