What to Consider When Choosing a Card Display Stand

Greetings cards can be an excellent way for your business to generate some extra revenue. If you are involved in any kind of retail, you will be able to find greetings cards which suit your niche and your brand, providing you with a great retail option for your customers – cards don’t take up much space and generally don’t have an expiry date, and they’ve never been more popular among customers.
With a huge range available, you’ll be sure to find some bestsellers to stock your card display unit with – but just what kind of display should you set up? There are several types of greeting card units, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages – what you ultimately choose will be a question of your needs and the retail space with which you are working. At UK Shopfittings, we stock a range of card display racks and greetings card display stands to make sure that you can always find what you’re looking for – if you’re not sure, just get in touch with us on 0800 2707615 or use the contact form on this website for more information!

Card Display Stands & Card Racks

If you’re planning on selling greetings cards at your business, you should invest in a card display stand or a card rack to make the most of the available space and present your cards in an eye-catching, easy-to-browse manner. The types of greetings card stand available from UK Shopfittings are diverse enough to fit any store and make it easier than ever to sell cards to your customers, and include:

Counter Greeting Card Units

Your business is all about sales and profit so keeping track of every transaction taking place is crucial to stock control and the sales process. Cash registers do just that, register and log sales to provide a daily journal of all cash events so that stock levels can be monitored and replenished where necessary.

3. Professional Image to Customers

A standalone shelving unit, this card display stand can be placed anywhere and provides an excellent view of all the cards on display, with easy organisation and the ability to categorise the cards and browse through them quickly and efficiently. While more prominent than other card racks, and with a higher capacity for greetings cards, these bulky shelving units are more difficult to manoeuvre than other, lighter racks, and take up more space in your retail area – something to consider in smaller spaces or premises where space is at a premium. With this in mind, corner card units are available from UK Shopfittings which can fit into the juncture between shelving units and make the most of any available space!

Revolving Card Racks

Revolving card racks (or “card spinners”) are a common sight in smaller stores or shops which need to carefully use their available space. Light, easy to move and occupying the bare minimum of floor space for a free-standing card rack, revolving greeting card racks allow you to display cards on all four of their sides, so customers can turn the rack to browse at their leisure. Excellent for converting small empty patches of floor into retail real estate, revolving card racks come in all sorts of shapes and sizes to fit any retail setup.

Wall Card Racks

Available as slatwall accessories from UK Shopfittings, wall card racks (sometimes called “card pockets”) are the ideal space-saving display option for your greetings cards. Made to fit perfectly into your slatwalls, these card racks and their slatwall mountings turn stretches of empty wall into valuable retail real estate. As well as creating space, these slatwall accessories have the advantage of being easily moved and replaced, simply sliding out of their slatwall when necessary. This makes your wall card racks into a versatile display which can be easily adapted to new arrangements and displays to fit the seasons – whatever you need, your slatwall can adapt to fit it!

Acrylic Card Stands

If you don’t need much space to fit your greetings card racks, then a countertop acrylic card stand might be perfect for you. Ideal for small displays, these lightweight, inexpensive card stands are made from sturdy acrylic, and will fit with any retail aesthetic thanks to their clear plastic design.

Of all the card display units available from UK Shopfittings, the most versatile and cost-effective is the slatwall card display unit – made from clear acrylic, these display units have the same advantages as the rest of our slatwall accessories range – advantages that help give your business the edge over its rivals.

Slatwall Card Display Units

Usually taking the form of a card pocket made with clear acrylic, these display stands are easy to clean and maintain, and are durable and long-lasting, and can display your cards effectively, so customers can always find what they’re looking for.

The Advantages of Slatwall Units

A slatwall is unique in the world of retail in the adaptability and space-efficiency that it brings to a business. By converting empty stretches of wall into retail space, it raises the efficiency of the business and decreases the need for bulky shelving units, making more space within the retail space for customers to browse.

A slatwall card display is also benefited by the versatility of slatwalls – because the displays and mountings simply slot into place, they can be moved and rearranged in a matter of moments, making it extremely easy to adapt to changing conditions, like seasonal and holiday arrangements. With greetings cards in particular, adapting to changing holidays is a huge advantage to your store!

Choosing the Perfect Card Display Unit for Your Business

When you are choosing a card display stand, you should think about the size of the space which you have to work with, what your needs are and what your other products will need. If you have lots of space or you want to feature cards as a main display, then a greeting card display stand may be perfect for you. With one of these stands, you can make the most of the available space and put together a large card display, perfect for any customer!

Alternatively, something smaller and more space-efficient may be the solution your business needs – acrylic card stands or card racks that fit into your slatwalls will turn even small even amounts of available space into a revenue-generating area.
