20There are many different materials that can be used when constructing custom permanent displays. Just a few to consider are vacuum-formed plastic, injection-moulded plastic, metal, wire, acrylic, styrene, wood, glass, and corrugate. With so many options to choose from, how can you decide which will best suit your needs?
There are actually four things to consider during the selection process:
- Your budget- You shouldn’t just look at your overall budget for your custom permanent displays, but also what should be allocated to each one based on the product’s retail price. It is always great to have something that can last for a long time, but if it takes months or even years of sales profit to cover its cost, it doesn’t make a great deal of sense.
- Desired lifespan- Each material has a set reliable lifespan under normal use. For example, you wouldn’t want to use corrugated cardboard if you need custom permanent displays. The longer you want to use it, the more important it is to invest in the most durable material you can find.
- Weight load requirement- The heavier your products, the more you need to focus on choosing a strong material for your custom permanent displays. In addition, even though you may have items that are fairly light, if they are fragile, you may want to strengthen your display.
- Consider shipping costs- Don’t forget to factor in shipping costs when ordering your custom permanent displays. Often shipping goes by weight, so a stronger, heavier option is going to cost more to ship. When you are going with custom permanent displays, you can discuss a combination of materials that could lighten the display without affecting its structural integrity.
