Offering Information via Brochure Displays

You can’t just explain everything about your business in a sentence or two. No matter what services or products you offer, there is always complex information that demands a more in-depth explanation. While a few sentences in a commercial or print ad are perfectly fine, there are customers that will want to be better informed about the products and services you offer. This is where the brochure comes in. The brochure your company or business puts out for potential and existing customers should have all the information they need to make an informed decision on whether to purchase or continue to purchase from you.

Getting It Out There

Once you’ve created an informative brochure that not only educates your customer on what your company is, but also provides specific information about each of your products, you need to have a way to display them that will attract as much traffic as possible. The more hands you can get your brochures into will result in more business. Benchmark Displays has several options to choose from to help you display your company’s brochures.

Each type of business will have completely different needs when it comes to displaying their company information. If you are the proprietor of a toy store, you can be sure that you will be flooded with rambunctious kids, so you will want to look into the chipboard displays and chipboard brochure holders. They tend to be less likely to be destroyed by little kids bent on destruction. You can also go with a wall mounted brochure case that you can put out of reach of little curious hands.

Maybe you are a doctor with your own private practice. In this case, you might want something that looks a little more professional. Benchmark Displays also have acrylic magazine sleds as well as custom acrylic brochure displays that add a touch of professionalism that cardboard displays just can’t do. That isn’t to say cardboard brochure holders haven’t evolved into a much more modern look; there is just a level of class that clear acrylic has that can’t be beat.

Eco-Friendly Options

If you run a health store specializing in organic and vegan products you will more than likely be interested in the more eco-friendly options Benchmark Displays has to offer. This is where cardboard and chipboard show their worth. They provide a sturdy and useful display for any product brochures you want to display while still showing your attention to the environment.


No matter what services or products your company has to offer, we have the ability to provide you with custom brochure displays. This will put the necessary product information at customers’ fingertips allowing them to educate themselves about the things they are purchasing. Let Benchmark Displays work with your marketing team to come up with brochure display solutions that are stylish, functional, and ideal for your business setting. There are plenty of options to choose from that will not only reflect your professional and creative background but also can attract the attention of future consumers.

For this particular experiment into the future of marketing for your business, we will say your company specializes in hobbies.  Your particular store has an amazing selection of model cars and specialized paint along with arts and crafts for every age group.  It may also include several delicate pieces for dollhouses or larger items for a detailed model train town.  Even though there are a large amount of people that have needs that can be fulfilled by your store, there is still an untapped well of consumers that  you have yet to reach.  By creating a custom marketing strategy for your displays and other business related signs and promotional items, you can improve the visibility of your hobby store by leaps and bounds.

First Impressions

When it comes to your hobby store, your customer’s first impression can lead to repeat business if you approached it properly.  The first thing your customers should see when they walk in the door is an exceptional custom display.  Benchmark Displays can work with you to create a quality display that you can put at the front of the store for people to see first thing.  You can use this display to alternate products for certain specials throughout the week.  There are multi-level custom plexi displays and custom acrylic displays that are not only functional but stylish as well.

Easels are another way to advertise to your customers while inside the store.  You can have them at the front door or placed strategically around with special sales and pricing. They are easy to move around from place to place depending on your store layout.

Additional In-Store Options

Once your customer has made it in the door and is making their way through the aisles, you can have detailed product information as well as pricing for each item in our channel sign holders.  We also carry Vinyl products in the way of hanging sign holders to direct customers to a particular section of the store.  This helps with customer service so they don’t have to stop and ask where each product is.

Once your customer has made their final selections, they will be heading to checkout.  This is where POP, or point-of-purchase displays come in.  With their strategic placement by the registers, you can place specialized items that grab a customer’s attention.  These can be holiday specific items or just items that you happen to have on sale.  This is your last chance to acquire additional sales, so they need to be carefully thought out.

With a proper display setup throughout your store, you can increase your sales in ways you may have never thought possible.  Benchmark Displays has the ability to create personalized marketing strategy no matter what your business model is.  We have the ability to customize your POP displays, hanging signs, and custom display cases with your company logo to offer a professional marketing setup that can work with businesses from the level of a small toy store on up to a large retail clothing store.

Boost Your Business With Custom Displays

If you are in the business of offering a product in retail stores, one of the best ways to attract customers to your product over a competitor’s is by implementing a custom display.  If you product stands out and really “pops” so to speak, it will catch the eyes of your potential customers.  Studies have shown that visually appealing products on the shelf attract consumers attention, and increase the amount of time spent looking at these products!  The best part?  A custom display can be designed to target your ideal customer base.


Putting your Display to Work



 So let’s say that your company is looking to put your product up for sale, and let’s say for the sake of argument that you sell cosmetics, and you want to put them in a retail location, or maybe your product is a specialty beverage that you want to sell in an upscale liquor store.  A well thought out custom display can, and will increase visibility.  Taking into consideration the amount of time a customer will spend scanning the sales floor before heading to one display or another, keep in mind that consumers unconsciously tend to search for environments that create a positive mood and are inviting.  Why?  Because most purchasing decisions are emotion driven.  Using the most optimal display type, whether it’s acrylic, plexi, vinyl or chipboard, and being mindful that size, shape and color can all be deciding factors for increasing sales, you want to give your display a great deal of thought.  Given the fact that according to POPAI (Global Association for Marketing  at-Retail) 60% of purchases are decided right in the store, why leave it to chance?  Give your brand the boost that it needs!  Put Benchmark Displays to work for you and let us show you what we can do to increase your product’s sales!

Eco-Friendly Display Options

With all the news about global warming and climate change, it is time to start considering ways to reduce our carbon footprint in personal and work life. Statistics show that 70% percent of Americans believe that global warming is very real.  Off course, 92% percent of all statistics are made up on the spot, so take it for what it’s worth. When it comes to your ability to contribute to the betterment of the world in relation to your business, it’s vital to sit up and take notice

Brochure Displays

Benchmark Displays began way back in 1983 as Taymar Plastics.  Successfully designing, making and marketing virtually millions of plastic brochure holders, promotional literature racks and product displays was the mainstay of our business for more than twenty five years.  Then, the national conversation turned to bulging earth-fills and environmental sustainability.  First a few and then many of our customers in the pharmaceutical, financial, food, retail product manufacturing, automotive and national retailer industries told us that new, internal company policies required that environmentally friendly and recyclable materials be used for their point-of-purchase brochure holders and custom product displays.  Acrylic and Plexiglas displays were no longer welcome in certain settings.

Paperboard packaging was the obvious and simple solution.  Chipboard or cardboard can be made from recycled newspapers and corrugated shipping containers or made from virgin wood chips but in either case, it’s biodegradable and eco-friendly.  Benchmark Displays, our new brand and identity, quickly added the capacity to furnish all types of brochure holders and product displays produced in our family-owned factory.  These displays can be screen or digitally printed with company logos and product advertising if the requirement is small in quantity or litho printed if the quantities are larger.  

Retail Displays

So, if you are looking for ways to display your products and promotional literature while still being conscientious of the environment, then cost-effective paperboard displays are a great bet! 

We only have one world to live in, (unless you know something that we don’t) so it might be time we all try a little harder to take care of it. While recycling has long been touted as a way to help the environment, we are finding out ways to reduce our carbon footprint in everything that we do. Cars are becoming more economical in regards to fuel consumption, for example, you can now get a car that is the size of a large shoebox, which reduces the amount of fuel you will need (for obvious reasons) and more people are choosing mass transit or carpool as a method of transportation. There are more and more packaging options being made out of recycled products, and because brands typically update their packaging every couple of years, cost is no longer a large company’s biggest concern.


The good news? It is possible to do your part when it comes to your business, Benchmark Displays is more than happy to do its part in reducing our own little carbon footprint!

5 Marketing Benefits of Custom Displays

CrestOralBPallet WhiteI was talking with my sister on the phone the other day, when she interrupted me from her excitement over her recent impulse buy of black, glitter nail polish. She had gone to the store for some soda, when she explained that she saw this new nail polish sign. She’s not terribly familiar with all of the display marketing lingo. Anyway, after some probing, I found out that she was attracted to this new color of polish because of the display.

Custom displays help by providing that “wow” factor. Visuals convey the power of ideas in a way that words alone cannot. The personality of a retail store is not determined by merchandise alone. Custom displays provide the following benefits when properly designed and deployed.

Brochure Holders Provide Excellent ROI

Today’s economy and retail market place has forced business to be vigilant about capital and marketing investments. Choosing the most purposeful and cost effective method of  either displaying product or disseminating marketing information is imperative to a business investment.

Brochure holders are a great organizational tool to enhance the marketing strategy of any business. A brochure holder is an extension of your marketing and sales team to display important information about your goods and services to consumers. Customers can easily and without intimidation take your literature to learn more about your business, services or product.

Brochure holders are made of many different types of materials. There are floor stands, counter top and wall or window mountable holders. Many businesses use wire, metal or acrylic holders. Stores, medical offices and especially food outlets like to use economical and environmentally friendly holders made of  cardboard or plastic. Ultimately, your choice depends of  what provides you the most visibility and suits your branding.

As I have said before, choosing a display should be specific to your needs and where you are going to locate the display is important. Consider the longevity of your display. Will you keep and use your display for a year or more, then consider materials that are more rugged. Will your display be temporary or in an environment where it may be damaged easily or possibly taken, choose a disposable material. You will want to consider all possibilities, such as, will the display be on a counter, hanging on an entrance door, placed on a retail end-cap or free standing on a floor. Your brochure holder and literature needs to be attractive and eye-catching to consumers. You will attract more takers and traffic with quality brochure holders that include your branding.

Versatile holders, also known as convertible brochure holders allow you a variety of ways to be used. You can place convertible holders on counter tops or walls, eliminating your need to buy several different styles of holders that a designed for specific use. There are holders with multiple pockets, business card holders and combination literature frame and brochure holders.

There are a variety of brochure holders available online for both large quantity wholesale purchases and smaller end-user retail purchases. Most all brochure holders can be imprinted with your branding, depending on the quantity desired. If you have a non-standard size piece of literature, you will want a custom designed display. Take time to research what is available before making your purchase. Most customers find working with a display company with outstanding customer service benefits the bottom line. Remember all of  the points previously mentioned and you will receive a beneficial return on your investment.
