These systems can be custom designed as well which is why they’re so great for retail spaces who’s displays are constantly changing with trends and marketing campaigns.

Why Corrugated Cardboard is a Great Option

  • Custom corrugated displays are much less expensive than other display alternatives.
  • Corrugated cardboard is recyclable & an eco-friendly option for displays.
  • Corrugated cardboard ships out flat which allows for more displays to fit on a pallet.

Benefits of Working with Modern Retail Solutions

  • We are American Made & Veteran Owned
  • We offer short sample turn around
  • Our products are consistent

Disadvantages to Corrugated Cardboard

  • In order to create custom corrugated cardboard displays, cutting dies are required. Due to the piece being custom, the cost can vary depending on how many pieces the display needs.
  • If you plan on changing the display at any point, not all cutting dies can be adjusted.
  • Wear and tear can cause the displays to last about 1-2 years.

If you have decided that corrugated cardboard is the route you would like to go for your custom displays, here are a few things to think about:

  1. How many products/pieces would you like to fit on the display?
  2. How many displays are you looking to purchase?
    • Note: purchasing in pallet quantities is suggested. the more displays purchased, the cheaper each display will cost.
  3. Are there any size limitations in the stores/locations these displays will be going in?
    • Note: tall displays are easier to tip over and could be a safety issue if people are going to be walking around it.
  4. If you are interested in putting art on the display, work with a designer who can create what you are looking for. We accept art designs in the form of an adobe art file or an EPS file.

If you have further questions or are looking to place a customer cardboard display order, please reach out to us here!

Preparing for the New Year: Making Your Business Better in 2020

Ready for the New Year?

Preparing for the New Year:

Making Your Business Better in 2020

The end of the year is approaching quickly and now is the best time to start improving your business! We’ve put together a few helpful tips to get you ready for 2020.

1. Balance Your Books

Nobody enjoys crunching the numbers all day long, but having a good understanding of your business’ financials can help you manage your priorities and hopefully save a few dollars. Now is a great time to go back through your company’s spending over the year and eliminate unnecessary services or subscriptions. Have an ex co-worker that quit a few months ago? You might want to make sure you’re not paying for their unused email or Google services.

 

2. Master Your Digital Presence

As we move into 2020, more and more of our customer base will become younger, tech-savvy adults. Today’s modern consumer expects quick, 24/7 service. The best way to make their experience seamless is by offering your services and information online. 

  1. Make sure you have a website and that it looks good on mobile devices (iPhones, Androids, iPads, etc.). 
  2. Remove the roadblock of requiring your customers to call you for things like quotes or information. Many consumers won’t be viewing your website during normal business hours and won’t wait to call you — they will simply bounce to a different website.
  3. Use contact forms, chatbots, or pricing pages to allow your customers access to information instantly.
  4. Keep your business address and hours of operation up-to-date. These are typically shown in Google’s search results and it is crucial that this information is correct.

 

3. Update Your Storefront

Whether you’re an established retail business with multiple stores or an avid flea market pop-up shop, you’ll want to keep your storefront looking fresh. 2020 is the perfect time to get rid of those old and drabby product displays for a fresh updated look. Your customers are bettering themselves for the new year and so should you. Modern Retail Solutions is here to help you into the new year. Check out our online store to start planning your 2020 experience today.
