Plastic containers are some of the most popular display tools around. They’re versatile, durable, and work with numerous kinds of merchandise. However, before you order bulk plastic containers for your store’s merchandise display, take the following tips into consideration.
Tip #1: Before you order bulk plastic containers, consider your merchandise and display space.
It’s easier to determine what kinds of – and how many – containers you’ll need if you first determine which merchandise you plan to display and the amount of display space you have to work with.
You can find plastic bins in a wide variety of sizes (see below), but even the largest container will place a size limit on the kinds of merchandise you can store in it. Candy, small children’s toys, accessory and convenience items like eyeglass repair kits and traveling manicure kits- these are the kinds of products most shop owners display in their containers.
Once you’ve determined which merchandise you want to display, take a look at the amount of display space you have to work with. Are you creating a countertop display, or are you situating your display on a shelf or a convenience store rack? Understanding your display space will help you further determine the number and size (see below) of the containers.
Tip #2: Browse a variety of plastic container sizes.
As mentioned above, plastic containers come in a variety of sizes. Naturally, you want to choose the containers that will work best both with the kind of merchandise you want to display and the amount of display space you have to work with, but if you need some help getting started, note that one-gallon plastic containers are generally the most popular among shop owners.
Tip #3: Don’t forget to check out fun plastic container shapes!
Not only do they come in a variety of sizes, but these containers also come in a variety of shapes! You can find these containers in traditional square, hexagon, and round or “fish bowl” shapes as well as in holiday-inspired shapes like Christmas trees and Santa Claus boots.
Tip #4: Consider colored plastic containers.
Clear plastic containers are excellent choices because they work with any decoration theme and they allow you and your customers to easily view the merchandise inside; however, colored containers add a little something extra to your displays.
Give colored containers a try by selecting containers in colors that match your shop’s current décor or “theme,” choosing holiday-inspired colors or the colors of your area’s local sports teams, or matching the container colors with the colors of the merchandise (such as using yellow containers for lemon-flavored candy).
Tip #5: Check out other display tools to use with your plastic containers.
Note that these containers work well as stand-alone display tools, but you can also pair them with other display fixtures like wire display racks or convenience store racks. Using additional display tools with your containers helps you maximize the amount of display space you have to work with or, in some cases, create display space where there was none before!
