Showcase Your Unmissable Offers With Strut Cards

strut cards

Strut cards (also known as show cards) are a powerful tool when it comes to point of sale marketing. These handy display signs are particularly effective when it comes to letting your customers know about special offers they can take advantage of. They’re also ultra portable, which is ideal for on the go advertising.
If you think strut cards can work for your business (and we believe they work for all kinds) then check out our top tips for making the most of your strut cards with Cheshire Packaging.

Bespoke Strut Cards Help You Stand Out

The main purpose of a strut card is to bring a customers attention to products or offers quickly. Brochures and leaflets have their place but a display board is great for catching the eye of impulse buyers. Designs are available in a range of sizes from A5 to A3 depending on where they’ll be displayed, but what’s most important is your message.

Take some time to come up with a simple but effective message to attract consumers. If you want your strut card to prompt a customer to make a purchase consider the questions they’ll be asking:

  • Why should I buy it?
  • What’s the benefit of the product?
  • How big is the discount?
  • Can I get it anywhere else?

There will be a huge range of questions to think about, but a clever headline with a clear call to action is paramount.

Get Creative With High Quality Designs

At Cheshire Packaging, we pride ourselves on high quality design. How your brand looks is as important as the message you’re sending, which is reflected in your POS packaging. Why not try getting creative with your point of sale packaging?  For example, if you would like customers to visit your website you could add a QR code leading to a discount code or coupon. Or you could promote your social media accounts such as Facebook, Instagram, or Snapchat. The possibilities are almost endless!

Comparing Film and Liquid Lamination for Strut Cards in Bolton

strut cards in bolton

Strut cards in Bolton from Cheshire Packaging use film lamination which provides reliable protection from the elements such as moisture, fingerprints and dust.
For over 25 years we’ve been the leading manufacturers of strut cards in Bolton and Greater Manchester and we are going to look at the difference between film and liquid laminations, that are used for different applications.

Film Lamination
The film lamination is the application of a film substrate and adhesive to an underlying layer.
Benefits of laminating your strut cards include protection against premature degradation against the effects of abrasion, handling, rolling, installation and finally from the environment it’s installed.
Film lamination adds rigidity to the print and enhances the colour and the visual effect, plus Cheshire Packaging designers can also add UV protection which protects the inks against premature fading, scratches, water, chemicals and extra exposure to handling or touching.

Liquid Lamination
Liquid lamination is a different type of finish that is used when film lamination isn’t possible to use. This is used on PVC banners, fabrics and textiles as well as finishes for automobiles.

Using Strut Cards in Bolton Effectively

Strut cards are a simple and cost-effective way to grab the attention of your audience at an event or for your products in-store.

The Most Common Questions about Transit Packaging in Huddersfield

transit packaging in huddersfield

Transit packaging in Huddersfield is just one of a host of services offered by the leading packaging solutions providers – Cheshire Packaging!
We often get quizzed about our range of transit packaging, so we’re going to share some of the most popular questions from our customers, plus the answers.

What Materials Work Best for Transit Packaging?
The choice of packaging material depends on the size and the products you want to ship. Your shipping boxes need to be robust and give the maximum amount of protection to your goods whilst in transit. For higher loads using the recyclable corrugated board is generally the most popular option.

Does Transit Packaging Undermine the Product’s Sale Packaging?
Not at all. If you’ve decided to have bespoke designs for a special or new product box, this won’t be affected by transit packaging. The ideal way to get the best of both worlds is by talking this through with our team during the design stage for your packaging.

Can My Transit Packaging Be Printed On?
Yes, this is another opportunity to extend your brand awareness and spread the word about a new product subtly.

Is My Packaging Environmentally Friendly?
Here at Cheshire Packaging, we are extremely conscious of our commitment to the environment, which is the reason why all of our packaging solutions are made from recyclable materials.
By working with us you will be doing your bit to help create an eco-friendlier world.

How Eco-Friendly Packaging in Bolton Works

eco friendly packaging in bolton

Cheshire Packaging prides itself on producing eco-friendly packaging in Bolton for a wide range of customers.
The environment and climate change have hit the headlines recently with Greenpeace activists protesting outside BP’s head offices in London earlier this week.
Once you have finished with your cardboard packaging you may be wondering what’s the best way to recycle it, but don’t worry we’ve got you covered.

Recycling Eco-Friendly Packaging in Bolton

Cardboard is easy to break down so it can be easily stored ready for recycling or in preparation for compost.

  1. First, you will need to remove all plastic and vinyl packaging tape from the box, which is used to seal it shut. This can also be disposed of the same as regular rubbish.
  2. Once this non-recyclable tape has been removed you can easily flatten the box out, ensuring the top and bottom flaps are straight and push the opposite corners together.
  3. The box should close up making it flat and easy to store or transport. If you’re recycling the packaging it needs to be kept in a dry place ready for collection, as wet cardboard is harder to handle when wet and recycle.

Here’s a couple of questions we are asked regularly regarding eco-friendly packaging.
Is Cardboard Packaging Biodegradable?
Yes, cardboard is biodegradable because it will break down and decompose naturally, although the time it takes will differ depending on the environment it’s in.
Can Corrugated Carboard be Recycled?
The best thing about corrugated cardboard is that it’s completely recyclable and used again for other cardboard packaging and boxes.

Impress Impulse Buyers with Strut Cards in Chester

Strut cards in Chester are one of the best ways to entice impulse buyers towards your latest range of products.
The design of your strut cards is crucial and our innovative designers will create something truly special in any shape or size.

Strut Cards in Chester Sell Dreams

One of the industries where show cards are a great marketing tool is in the beauty and cosmetics sector.
Sometimes referred to as selling dreams, makeup and cosmetics offer shoppers a chance to better themselves and enhance their wellbeing and confidence. Your advertising of these products needs to communicate your brand’s key messages in seconds.

“Eye level is buying level” in retail. Locating your displays and products at a point in-store where customers can see without looking up or down increases the number of purchases.
Retail industry statistics reveal that just one-third of in-store purchases are planned, which in turn means the other two-thirds of purchases are impulse buys – a major opportunity for stores!

How do you drive sales conversions? The positioning of advertising and product placement is key to catching your customers eye with lower priced products or sale items working better nearer to till points. Creating a tailored space for a new must-have item will help it stand out from the crowd.

The final push for your customers will be the striking design of your strut cards with an exclusive offer. The retail industry takes no prisoners, make sure your advertising captures attention and instantly persuades. It is the difference between good or poor sales.
