Boost Sales With Flexible Solutions

With the autumn/winter season upon us and the promise of winter sales and indeed the sedentary housing market motivating consumers to make a house a home, UK Point of Sale is helping retailers to get the most out of their furniture displays with its flexible wallets.

Retailers can control the ambiance of their store with lighting and music, but navigating the aisles can be a frustrating process when consumers don’t have the information they need. Designed with style and clarity in mind, flexible wallets are the perfect solution for the display of full product specifications and pricing, while not distracting from the design of the product.

The flexible wallet is easy to update with only a ticket or label printed on paper, meaning it is reusable throughout the store for a variety of displays. Perfect for furniture displays, lighting, Christmas decorations and even January sale displays the flexible wallet is durable and versatile.

Debra Jamieson, Sales and Marketing Director of UK POS, commented:
“Our flexible wallets are an essential part of a retailers’ point of sale kit, particularly in the furnishings sector. The clear non-invasive design makes them perfect for any product line, from beds and pillows to dining tables and lighting departments, and at a time when retailers are looking to maximise sales by expanding product ranges, the wallets can be used throughout the store and reused across different product lines.”

The flexible wallets are available from sizes A7 to A4, with other sizes available on request, and are manufactured in 190 micron clear PVC.

UK POS has been manufacturing point of sale products for over 20 years and is continually adapting to changing market trends when it comes to working with retailers to market their offers. Best selling products include banner frames and snap frames.

UK POS Believes In The All Important Finishing Touches

Behind any retailers strategically designed POS should be a fixing which adds a suitable and discreet finishing touch, according to leading UK manufacturer of point of sale materials, UK Point of Sale Group Ltd (UK POS). Offering a varied range of display accessories and fixings is important for customers to complete their POS packages whether that be a bespoke or off the shelf product.

It is necessary to highlight the value of quality display accessories and fixings, such as suspension fixings, ceiling fixings, wobbler strips and suction cups, to retailers. As Sales and Marketing Director of UK POS, Debra Jamieson, explains:“Retailers will have a process from which they design and print their POS to how and where it is displayed. But how is it going to be attached and fixed without the fixings looking unsightly and intrusive? The answer is to offer a variety of options whatever the shape, size and weight of the POS and an experienced customer services team who can advise on the best option. As a manufacturer of these products, we can even design and manufacture unique items especially for customers.”

“For example a leading furniture retailer approached us in the hope that we could solve a longstanding nuisance. It found that flexible wallets were always supplied with white adhesive buttons, which really stood out when placed on furniture. Having tried to source clear buttons for a while, our design team went that extra mile to mould clear alternatives to the retailer’s desired specification.”

UK POS’ range of ceiling, wall, window and shelf fixing options ensures retailers have the accessories to finish the job. The range includes suspension and ceiling fixings, which come in a variety of designs to offer uplifting promotions or to guide customers around stores.

UK POS Launches Innovative A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder

UK POS is sending customers in a new direction by developing an innovative product that it not only suitable for promotions, but is also ideal for directional signage and displaying information. The new A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder allows customers to easily interchange between portrait and landscape formats for the same cost and quality as a floor standing sign holder with fixed poster position or Show Card Stand.

UK POS Launches Innovative A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder

The A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder is multifunctional and as such, can be used in a myriad of sectors. Debra Jamieson, Sales and Marketing Director for UK POS commented: “It is often easy to focus on the promotional attributes of point of sale materials, however we believe it is just as important to consider their use as directional signage and displaying information. The Floor Standing Sign Holder is ideal for such purposes as well as being cost effective and atheistically pleasing.”

Finished in silver anodised aluminum and with smooth, rounded corners, the A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder is quick and easy to assemble and as such, can be used in either a landscape or portrait A4 option. The poster can be rotated using fastenings at the back which keeps it secure.

Suitable for internal use only, it stands at a fixed height of 1m with a weighted base for stability. Signage can be swapped with ease due to its snap shut front opening mechanism. The anti-glare poster cover sheets will make information inside clear to see.

Key components are fully recyclable including the aluminum leg and frame, polystyrene (HIPS) back panel and steel base, as well as the PET front cover.

As a reworked version on UK POS’ Single Post A4 Frame, Debra Jamieson explains why there is a constant push to improve products: “UK POS’ research and design team is constantly looking to innovate to benefit our customers. Seeing that we could create a more dynamic version of our current Single Post A4 Frame product, we decided to produce the alternative A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder which can easily be adjusted between portrait and landscape poster displays by the customer – all without a hike in cost or quality. We expect it to be a popular option due to its multifunctional characteristics.”

To promote the launch, UK POS will be offering the A4 Floor Standing Sign Holder at a special introductory price of £27.95 per unit plus VAT and excluding carriage until stocks last. These are usually priced at £36 each.

UK Manufacturer Of Point-Of-Sale Products Highlights Must-Have Display Items For Christmas Promotions

Stuck for inspiration this season on how to display any last minute seasonal point-of-sale? Well there’s still plenty of time to order items for the run-up to Christmas, and to make product selection easier, UK Point Of Sale Group Limited has come up with a quick-fix solution – a Christmas wish list.

The UK manufacturer of point-of-sale (UK Point Of Sale) materials has created the must-have list as it has been reported that consumers can look forward to seeing significant promotions and early winter sales this year. So UK POS believed a quick call stating the Christmas wish-list would assist retailers with their orders during this extremely busy period.

With UK POS’ best possible prices and next day delivery available, the list features six point-of-sale options, including:
– A1 Pavement A Boards Sign to get customers in store
– A4 Snap Frames to promote Christmas special offers and deals with interchangeable posters
– Shelf Talkers for stand out pricing displays
– A4 pallet Stacking Card Holders for large displays of product promotions
– Flag Sign Holders to catch the customers attention with special offers and deals
– Extending Wire Hooks for ceiling posters to guide customers through the store

It was Rob Templeman, the chief executive of Debenhams, who predicted that consumers can look forward to significant promotions this Christmas with retailers looking to boost revenues after a somewhat turbulent year*. However UK POS fears that retail outlets could soon become over run with offers or overcrowded sales, when in fact retailers should be taking the less is more approach.

UK POS’ sales and marketing director, Debra Jamieson advises:
“Overcrowding shelf space with various offers and promotions can be off putting for consumers and leave shoppers confused as to what product is truly the best value for money. Being clear and concise about your brand offerings is more important than ever this Christmas to ensure retailers secure those all important sales.”

“Retailers need to make consumers feel that an offer is too good to be missed. As such, we are advising our customers to rotate displays during the run up to Christmas, creating first come first serve offers that encourage that immediate impulse response.”

UK POS’ next day delivery service means that retailer’s can select their must-have display products and have them delivered in time for the Christmas rush. For further information call UK POS on 0161 431 4400 and quote: Christmas Wish List.
