Displaysense Is Introducing A New Range Of Hanging Body Form Busts After Significant Demand From Customers

During this recession, businesses are learning that they must adapt quickly as well as work smarter and more efficiently in order to make the most out of every pound. Such companies are hoping the strategy of supplying more to customers in the way of product choice and services will ensure they are leading the UK’s economic recovery.

Displaysense, the country’s leading supplier of display cabinets and leaflet holders believe they are doing their part in offering more to businesses and consumers by introducing more than 200 new products over the past month alone as well as offering more in the way of information to existing and prospective customers.

One such new product launch that is offering more to the companies customers is their new range of hanging body form busts. This range is a first for Displaysense who are now supplying value sale packs in the form of “mega deal” packs as standard across the range of busts that offers greater savings to customers.

The company has already received a number of enquiries for the mega deal packs of hanging busts throughout August, from a number of clothing retailers through to a paintball centre wanting to use the items for training and target practice, which has made the company think broader when it comes to promoting these products

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on this new wave of product launches by saying “We are incredibly proud of every new product that we introduce as we fully understand that in a market such as this we cannot afford to stand still for very long. We are hoping to launch further mega deal packs in the future that could offer even greater savings, which is a much needed considering the current fragile nature of the retail sector.”

Not only have the company been introducing new products on a regular basis, but Displaysense has also been improving its new website with a faster site search function, allowing for easier customer access to products such as business card holders and whiteboards. The business has also embraced customer self service as another area to improve efficiencies, with the introduction of service forms, so customers can make enquiries or raise issues at any time of the day.

With new customer feedback and returns processes also recently introduced by the company in a bid to aid their customers, proving that Displaysense is not only pushing the message of economic recovery, but are also far from going bust anytime soon.

Leading Online Jeweler Presents Modern Palladium Rings From Coge And ArtCarved

Titanium-Jewelry.com, a leading online retailer of men’s wedding bands, tungsten rings, titanium rings and unique contemporary jewelry, is proud to be at the forefront of the stylish and cost efficient precious metal palladium, with a full line of wedding, engagement and anniversary rings. An alternative to platinum with its strength and sophistication, palladium rings are priced comparable to white gold and serves as a bold and stylish choice for shoppers looking for a lasting choice in fine jewelry.

“In this economy, people are being more prudent with their dollar, looking for cost effective alternatives in every purchase,” said Ron Yates, founder, Titanium-Jewelry.com. “The jewelry market is no different and because of this we are pleased to bring a full line of Palladium wedding bands to our customers. At just one-third of the price of platinum, palladium makes a wonderful alternative boasting the same high quality and value, without breaking the bank.”

While many consumers look toward white gold as a cheaper alternative to platinum, many are not aware of some of the fundamental differences between the two precious metals. While platinum rings stand at a 95% purity level, white gold can only claim a purity level between 41%-75%. Also, because of the additions of coloring to white gold rings, fading and tarnishing can occur during the life span of the ring. Palladium, however, not only matches the strength of platinum, but also its 95% purity level and will not tarnish or fade like white gold. Unlike white gold it is also hypo-allergenic and, most importantly, at around a third of the price of platinum, it serves as one of the best metal values on the market. To learn more about palladium watch an informational clip, visit http://www.titanium-jewelry.com/palladium-wedding-bands-video-comparison.html.

Titaniun-Jewelry.com brings cutting edge designs to market offering affordability and stylish value to couples in search for unique rings and contemporary jewelry.

Halloween Safety Kit Introduced By Leading Photo Luminescent Product Developer

According to statistics, children are four times more likely to be injured on Halloween night than any other night of the year.

Each year, more than 650 children are hit and killed by cars while another 20,000 are injured. On Halloween that ratio rises dramatically.

This year FotoLum – a leading developer of photo luminescent products and Solutions – is offering an inexpensive, yet effective safety kit designed to increase children’s visibility without compromising their costumes. Fotolum products are far superior to novelty glow in the dark items. They are the result of years of research and testing on high-grade, proprietary, materials yielding photo luminescent performance unmatched in the industry.

The same material used in the FotoLum Halloween Safety Kit is used on helmet and equipment patches implemented by the Fire Department of New York and many other fire departments across the nation to which FotoLum supplies.

FotoLum also provided the photo luminescent vinyl used in shoes sold to help promote the August released movie G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

The company is involved in a broad range of industry applications ranging from photo luminescent, non-slip stair treads for public stadiums; to photo luminescent indoor and outdoor signage; to the boarding (skate board, long board, surf board, etc) market with its newly released board protection and illumination product – Board Brite.

The company’s well-known After-Lite product which attaches to a compact fluorescent bulb is widely embraced by the “green” community for its energy-free emergency lighting capabilities.

Equal Strategy Helped New Balance To Project A Total Sensory Experience With A Retro ’50’s And ’60’s Look And Feel In Their World’s First New Balance Experience Store In Beijing

Asia’s leading ‘environmental branding consultancy’ Equal Strategy has helped New Balance to project a total sensory experience with a retro ’50’s and ’60’s look and feel in its World’s first New Balance Experience Store in Beijing’s historic Qianmen Avenue.

Equal Strategy Helped New Balance To Project A Total Sensory Experience With A Retro '50's And '60's Look And Feel In Their World’s First New Balance Experience Store In Beijing

The store, New Balance’s first ever Experience Store™, showcases the company’s century-long heritage over two floors amidst framed archival photographs, vintage New Balance advertisements and brand paraphernalia dating as far back as 1910.

A DNA ribbon which extends from the first floor entrance all the way to the second floor takes the consumer through a chronological journey documenting the brand’s rich past, present and future. The detail in the overall store design is further complimented by audio, visual and olfactory experiences throughout the store including the unique smell of natural woody notes, with a touch of leather, reminiscent of a shoe store’s scent from the mid-20th century.

What does New Balance sound and smell like? To create the right atmosphere for the brand product highlights, Equal Strategy’s sensory marketing guru Simon Faure-Field deployed a woody scent coupled with 1950’s style “be bop” music. Customers can“bop while they shop” to the supplied sounds of Bill Haley and the Comets, Little Richard, Fats Domino, The Everly Brothers and Jerry Lee Lewis.

In addition, Equal Strategy’s programmed in-store messaging directs customers to check out the store’s second floor merchandise and repeatedly highlights New Balance’s unique Performance DNA concept. Scientific research has found that 40% of shoppers who listen to in-store audio messages are influenced in their purchasing decisions.

According to Equal Strategy, Scientific studies found the sense of smell is the only sense directly connected to the brain’ centre for memory and emotions. More than 80% of customer decisions are influenced by what we smell! Scientific olfactory studies conducted in the United States found that training shoes which had been lightly scented with a barely-perceptible fragrance sold more pairs and for a higher premium than unscented trainers.

Bob Neville Regional Retail Manager for New Balance in Asia Pacific commented “we are very pleased with the way the music, messaging and specially formulated New Balance ‘aroma’ integrate within the built three dimensional aspect of the New Balance Experience Store. We want to create a brand experience that is totally reflective of the brand essence and as such this has to go beyond what you see and encompass all of the human senses. This first Experience Store in Beijing marks the first of a global role out and will for the first time see, hear and smell the New Balance brand in an integrated and total experience”

About Equal Strategy
Equal Strategy delivers “music”, “fragrance” and “recorded telephone messages on hold” to businesses in a scientific way that enhances the overall customer experience of the brand and causes the customer to stay longer and buy more! Equal Strategy is the only company in Asia that specialises in deploying “music” and “fragrance” solutions to business where the two senses are stimulated in synergy with each other.

Sound and smell deliver stimuli directly to the memory centres of the brain, influencing behaviour and creating suggestion at both the conscious and unconscious levels. Decades of behavioural research into the habits of consumers has found that “consumer arousal” can be either stimulated or suppressed through the use of mood settings like music and fragrance.

Displaysense To Sell Relaxation And Motivation

Displaysense, the Hertfordshire-based retail display provider, is looking to play its part in stimulating the UK by sourcing office display equipment that provides a healthier, enjoyable working environment.

Displaysense To Sell Relaxation And Motivation

Displaysense, the country’s leading supplier of shelving units and display cabinets, is encouraging businesses around the country to create more home like environments for their employees to work in, in order to encourage productivity and increase motivation.

To do this, the company is launching its “Late Summer Break Out” campaign that will see the introduction of ergonomic computer desks as well as other display items that might be expected at home such as plants, comfy sofas, paintings, lamps and other relaxing display equipment.

In order to spread the “Late Summer Break Out” message, Displaysense will also be sending leaflets out to a selection of their business customers highlighting the importance of a relaxed, fun working environment. The leaflet will show how they can make the most out of their office space by using some of the new Displaysense display systems, as well as ideas to assist in motivating the workforce.

Steve Whittle, the marketing manager at Displaysense, commented on the concept, “A lot of people spend the majority of their days at work and constant exposure to these stressful environments can not only lead to a loss in productivity, but also serious health issues. Having fun is a basic human requirement and we believe that businesses should do more to make employees comfortable and provide a slice of home and pleasurable places to escape within their office environment.”

Motivational theorist, Abraham Maslow, noted in the 1940’s that employees have certain criteria that need fulfilling in the work environment and the basic psychological needs, such as having fun, are the most important requirements of all.

Regardless of the size of the business, the UK is reportedly working longer hours than other countries in the EU, emphasising the need for a more relaxed workplace.

Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes By Clinique

Clinique has announced the launch of new Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes, which is its latest defense for men who want to effectively address the look of the multiple signs of ageing around the eye area.

Long hours squinting at the computer screen, late nights, not enough sleep and sun damage eventually take their toll on the sensitive skin around the eyes of unsuspecting men. Upon the first signs of ageing, an increasing number of men are seeking immediate measures to restore the look of vitality to this vulnerable skin. Men now understand that maintaining their youthful appearance requires the right de-ageing tools.

Created exclusively for men and conveniently packaged with a flip-top cap, New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes is the latest addition to the men’s skin care and grooming range.

Men often don’t show signs of ageing until their 30s. Then, loss of firmness, lines and wrinkles suddenly appear. The skin around the eyes is roughly ten times thinner than the skin on the rest of the face and is extremely sensitive, so it’s important to take action.

Clinique understands these concerns and has formulated a lightweight men’s eye cream that delivers intense moisture and advanced treatment properties to combat the frustrating signs of ageing. Upon application, the look of dark circles and puffiness is immediately diminished and the eye area is instantly hydrated. With continued use, the appearance of firmness and elasticity is restored, reducing the look of lines and wrinkles. This powerful all-in-one eye cream helps build the skin’s barrier and contains soothing antioxidants that help protect against future damage.

New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes contains a cocktail of ingredients designed for moisturising, visibly reducing puffiness, diminishing the appearance of dark circles and protecting against future damage.

The new launch partners up with the mens 3-Step Skin Care. System, as well as Skin Supplies for Men Age Defense Hydrator SPF 15 for the most comprehensive anti-ageing routine for men.

New Clinique Skin Supplies For Men Age Defense For Eyes is Allergy Tested, 100% Fragrance Free, Ophthalmologist Tested, Dermatologist Tested, Non-Comedogenic, Oil-Free and will be exclusively available at www.cliniqueformen.co.uk from 1 September 2009 and Clinique counters nationwide from 1 October 2009.

New Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula By Clinique

Clinique has created a next generation of loose powder with foundation coverage. The Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula is the companion to Clinique’s best-selling liquid foundation, Superbalanced Makeup and is to be launched at the start of September.

New Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula By Clinique

Clinique’s Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula doesn’t require all the work and buffing other mineral makeup brands do to achieve a smooth, flawless application. To develop this powder makeup, Clinique used a unique processing machine which refines the powder into uniform platelets that are evenly distributed on the surface of the skin. The colour-true, finely milled powder provides an even application requiring less touch-ups throughout the day with its long-wear formula. Users simply shave the powder in a clock-wise direction for the desired amount and the powder can be applied with the conveniently housed, anti-bacterial brush. Oily areas and shine breakthrough are controlled throughout the day due to the mineral-rich formula which is sweat and humidity-resistant.

Superbalanced Makeup is the answer to the perplexing combination-skin dilemma. The foundation formulas know exactly where to go and what to do to solve the problem of oily skin yet its smart enough not to strip the drier facial areas in the process. In fact, the powder actually hydrates these dry areas at the same time.

Additionally, broad spectrum SPF 15 sun protection is provided with 3:1 UVB/UVA protection, meaning the UVB protection is three times proportional to UVA protection. This 3:1 ratio ensures UVA protection is provided and this all-physical sun screen is suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

Clinique has used minerals in a range of products since the brand’s inception. Blended Face Powder, which contains minerals, was created the very same year Clinique launched 40 years ago. The Superbalanced Powder Makeup SPF 15 Mineral Rich Formula is Clinique’s newest mineral infused creation touting a mineral composition including Magnesium, Calcium, Potassium and Zinc incorporated into the formula to promote healthy skin.

Credit Crunch Is Good News For Online Retailer Right Price Furniture

Furniture buying is recognised as a good barometer of economic activity but as more people search for bargains online it has been good news for a South Wales-based internet retailer, Right Price Furniture. The company reports that turnover is actually up by 62% compared to 2 years ago and it now employs more staff to cope with the demand.

Right Price Furniture

Right Price Furniture was established by furniture entrepreneur Darren James who recognised the opportunities to sell furniture online after many years experience of operating traditional furniture showrooms. “Critics said no-one would buy furniture online, but this has been proved not to be the case,” says Mr James. He set out to‘extend’ his Bridgend showroom by adding a virtual shop display that could be seen across the whole of the UK. The process was not without difficulty, and he has become an expert on solving both the tangible problems, such as reliable nationwide furniture delivery, and the less tangible but equally formidable challenges of achieving a high prominence on the internet.

Right Price Furniture was one of the first UK companies to break the mould of traditional furniture retailing by going online and using the cost savings to offer furniture at prices up to 60% lower than on the high street. Not surprisingly, the move was not popular with other retailers but since the Credit Crunch more of them are turning to the internet in search of sales.

Mr James believes Right Price Furniture’s success is due to getting the balance right between traditional high street retail and internet-only retail – which has mushroomed since the Credit Crunch. Right Price Furniture retains a showroom at its Bridgend headquarters and also has its own furniture workshops to provide wax and lacquer finishes to customers’ specifications and undertake minor repairs.

“High Street retailers that go online are still trying to support high overhead costs. Internet only retailers may – or may not – be reliable and they have no way of dealing with the inevitable percentage of returns occurring with this type of operation,” explains Mr James. “Customers are reassured by the fact that they can visit us in person, while our workshops mean we are able to provide a professional finishing and repairs service. Customers feel confident they can return any purchases they are not entirely satisfied with.”

Right Price Furniture sells traditional and contemporary styles of wooden furniture through its website, in oak, ash, pine, dark and painted finishes. It is also the UK’s largest retailer of solid oak furniture from West Country-based Devonshire Pine Ltd, one of Britain’s last remaining commercial-scale furniture makers. “Selling on the internet will continue expanding in the future,” predicts Mr James. “And we have proved it is possible, even with products such as furniture, to be successful. There will always be some who try to use it as a quick way to make money, but we aim to be here for the long term and believe competitive prices and good service are the keys to success.”

The matching necklace, cufflinks, key ring and bracelet complete the collection. The EM Wellington ring and companion pieces are perfect for the stylish man who desires an understated yet timeless addition to his wardrobe. In addition, because the Wellington collection is made of Edward Mirell’s proprietary Black Ti™, which resists minor scratches and has a high luster shine, the jewelry will keep the new look much longer than a gold, silver or platinum ring.

Known for its distinctive designs that blend art with the science of metallurgy, Edward Mirell is the brainchild of jewelry designers Edward Rosenberg and Mirella Connor. Rosenberg, CEO of Spectore Corp., the parent company of Edward Mirell, pioneered the use of titanium in high-end jewelry design and fabrication more than 30 years ago when the material was used primarily in aerospace. His foray into the use of contemporary metals led to Edward Mirell becoming the authority on titanium jewelry innovation.

In addition to carrying the Edward Mirell collection, Titaniun-Jewelry.com offers sophisticated designs from ArtCarved, Benchmark, COGE, Diana Classic, Formotion Watches, J.R.

New Research Reveals That 31 Million (73%) Shoppers Are Taking Matters Into Their Own Hands By Opting For Supermarket Own Brand Labels In Order to Save Money

As food price increases start to slow down, it’s not just the supermarkets that are busy battling the pricing war. New research from uSwitch.com reveals that 31 million (73%) shoppers are taking matters into their own hands by opting for supermarket own brand labels in a bid to save money on the weekly shop. This figure has tripled since August 2008 when just a quarter (25%) of shoppers were ditching premium labels to lighten the financial load of the weekly trolley dash.

Much of this increase can be attributed to supermarkets expanding their own brand products in a bid to stop consumers switching to cheaper chains. This includes the launch of the Waitrose ‘Essentials’ own label range, Tesco’s ‘Discounter’ range and Sainsbury’s ‘switch and save campaign’ which calculates own brand savings. Not only has this activity secured repeat visits from existing customers, according to the recent TNS Worldpanel report it has also slowed the rapid growth of overseas competitors such as Aldi, Iceland and Lidl over the past few months.

Overall, this research has revealed that nine out of ten (90%) UK adults now use recession-busting shopping strategies when they do the weekly shop. Money off vouchers have also reached the top of the shopping list with the number of frugal consumers’ regularly using these has also shot up to 74%, compared with 26% last year. In addition, a fifth of shoppers (20%) now compare prices online before taking a trip down the aisles, this has more than tripled from just 6% in August 2008.

When it comes to shopping online 6.4 million consumers now claim to avoid the hustle bustle of their local supermarket by carrying out their weekly food shop online. Again, this has tripled from just 5% of consumers in August 2008. In fact, this is becoming so popular with consumers, industry commentators predict that the value of online food sales could hit £8 billion by 2011.

These recessionary cut backs could also have positive lifestyle implications for many savvy shoppers as they revert to the good life. Almost a fifth of consumers have now taken to growing their own fruit and vegetables, up from just 8% in August 2008. This has created a waiting list for allotments across the country amongst those who do not have the option at home. Just this week, Tesco has applied for planning permission to create allotments for rent at its Dobbies Garden Centre – they also plan to sell allotment starter kits.

As a result of ‘pinching the pennies’ becoming very much the new ‘splashing the cash’, figures suggest supermarkets may turn out to be one of the few winners in the recession. For example, Morrisons has just surprised the market with an unscheduled trading update indicating full year profits would be £70 million ahead of expectations. Share prices in Sainsbury’s and Tesco have also experienced a rise.

Rumina Hassam, personal finance expert at uSwitch.com, says: “In the face of uncertain economic forecasts, continued volatility in the housing market, and worrying increases in national unemployment, Brits are making savvy cutbacks to their fundamental spending routine to beat the recession at its own game.

“The number of Brits making basic changes to their weekly food shopping patterns has increased dramatically since last year, as the effects of the recession continue to amplify. However, despite the economic outlook remaining uncertain, consumers may find they have the last laugh – as the lessons learnt from the schooling in savviness they are currently experiencing as a result of the recession will remain vital, even long after the economy recovers.”

The UK’s Leading Retail Display Provider, Is Hoping To Tap Into The Wave Of Celebrity Success By Launching A “Celebrity I-Doll” Mannequin Competition For The Summer

Displaysense who sells a wide variety of literature holders and other shop fittings, has received requests in the past for alternative mannequin styles such as mannequins with bigger rear ends, but never has the company considered celebrity style imitation mannequins.

The retail display provider is set to launch the competition over the coming months by emailing existing customers, encouraging them to email and write in to Displaysense and state which celebrity they would most like a mannequin designed to look like and their reasons why.

The idea for the competition came about after an eager customer who had previously purchased a display cabinet from Displaysense, wrote in half way through July asking if a Marilyn Monroe mannequin could be created so he could kiss and fantasise over the fibreglass celebrity imitation.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager at Displaysense commented on the unusual competition by saying “We are hoping that our customers will see the funny side of the celebrity I-doll competition, especially during the summer holidays where kids are also encouraged to take part, although we feel that it is the parents that might be more occupied with the competition than the kids. As for the inspiration behind the competition, we are happy that customers are using our mannequins for a number of uses but we do not recommend getting too personal with a mannequin as there could be some undesired side effects”

Once the competition winner is announced, Displaysense will be contacting the celebrities agent to discuss the possibilities of producing mannequins of the celebrity.

According to numerous online celebrity polls, Displaysense could expect to receive requests for the likes of Megan Fox, Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney and Jude Law mannequins, thanks to their award winning legs, bums, tums and good looks. There can however only be one winner in the search for the UK’s first and only “celebrity I-doll” mannequin competition and entrants who feel they can supply Displaysense with that star quality, will need to email or write in to see if they can be this year’s winner.

About Displaysense
Displaysense was established in September of 1978 as a manufacturer of quality point of sale displays. Displaysense has a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and has been able to develop an ever growing standard range of more than 5,000 displays for retail, exhibitions, office and home.

Displaysense Equip Retailers In Their Fight Back Against Shop Lifters

Displaysense has reported a large rise in demand for its security related products as retailers seek security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.

displaysense

In better times, retailers would be happy to see products ‘flying off the shelves’. However, the recession has lead to an increase in the reported cases of shop lifting, which is costing the economy billions of pounds a year.

In order to stop shop lifters in their tracks, retailers are turning to companies such as Displaysense, for security equipment and alternative preventative methods that can be introduced to aid in the fight on crime.

The Hertfordshire company, which sells a variety of shop display equipment through to lockable security display cabinets has reported a 46% increase in the demand for security related products over the past year, emphasizing the changing demands on retailers.

After receiving numerous requests f r o m customer, Displaysense has recently introduced a new range of security equipment including safes, locks and security mirrors that should help act as a deterrent in the nations’ stores against would be thieves.

Steve Whittle the spokesperson at Displaysense commented on this worrying trend by saying, “The demand for security related items has really shot through the roof, with a large proportion of these products being purchased by retailers who had previously never had to worry about protecting their wares. We are looking to source further security products based on the types of customer enquiries we have had, but the worrying thing is that a lot of people are looking to go far beyond the solutions we currently supply”.

Steve went on further to say, “We have even seen an increase in demand for our range of sign holders and snap frames f r o m the likes of supermarkets, who have had an equally tough time f r o m shop lifters as of late with increasing petty theft, and are presumably having to warn customers about their policies on theft”.

Not only have retailers had to contend with the obvious drop in sales associated with a recession, but are now having to invest extra into security, reducing their profit margins even more – a worry for any store manager and company director during these critical times.

It is hoped that with these extra security measures in place, the threat of shop lifting could decrease dramatically and allow retailers to concentrate more on stock shifting rather than shop lifting.

Known for its distinctive designs that blend art with the science of metallurgy, Edward Mirell is the brainchild of jewelry designers Edward Rosenberg and Mirella Connor. Rosenberg, CEO of Spectore, the parent company of Edward Mirell, pioneered the use of titanium in high-end jewelry design and fabrication more than 30 years ago when the material was used primarily in aerospace. His foray into the use of contemporary metals led to Edward Mirell becoming the authority on titanium jewelry innovation.
