Temporary vs. Permanent Displays: Which is best?

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. Just 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 make your products sell best actually depends more on your products features, your program with your retailer, as well as your goals for this specific promotional campaign!

Let me give you a few important features of both to help you decide depending on the type:
