Cardboard Displays & Fixtures in visual merchandising

Cardboard Displays & Fixtures in visual merchandising

Cardboard ticks all the boxes of a trendy and cost effective display. Cardboard is eco friendly, recyclable, low cost and gives a raw, unfinished look to your store.


At the Euroshop 2014, the visual merchandising trend that stood out was the raw and industrial look, which appeals to an increasingly environmentally conscious consumer.  Cardboard fits perfectly within this year’s store design trends.

Cardboard displays are one of the most cost effective in-store advertising mediums. Cardboard can be designed as point of sale displays, counter displays, dump bins and even furniture. The benefits of cardboard displays allow them to be custom designed in any shape or size, branded, as well as strengthened to suit their required longevity. Further benefit of cardboard displays is the shipping price. Cardboard can be folded into a flat pack considerably reducing the freight cost.


It’s important to note that while regular, unwaxed, cardboard — made of two layers of cardboard with a crimped layer in between also called corrugated board, can be recycled, the waxed corrugated fibreboard variety cannot.


When we talk about cardboard, we think cheap, tacky, temporary and fragile but now, they are making incredible things with cardboard. Some displays can hold up to more than 200kgs.


SI Retail is looking at sourcing cardboard displays from its factory in China and maybe adding them to their range. If you are looking for something specific or if you are simply interested in cardboard displays give us a call on 1800 211 122 or email us at While we don't offer cardboard displays as part of our range of shopfitting products yet, we stock a range of corrugated board accessories and hooks.     


See below a selection of amazing store layouts, which incorporate cardboard as an essential material for displays and fixtures.

2014 Visual Merchandising Trends: Raw And Industrial Look

2014 Visual Merchandising Trends: Raw And Industrial Look

Stores, brands and retailers are always on the lookout for creative ways to attract and engage customers. It's no secret that the look and feel of a store influences the perception customers have of a retail space. What are the design trends for 2014, what '€˜sort of feel' are the customers looking for?

The retail trend for 2014 is a combination of old and new with digital signage associated with recycled and vintage fixtures. Retail design is going for raw materials, natural and industrial look. The trends are back to basics, with a move towards Eco-friendly and natural materials being used for store fixtures.

The vintage look evokes nostalgic feelings; there are often warm memories of unforgettable past moments. The vintage look follows the eco spirit with the uses of recycled materials. The store becomes a nostalgic place where we celebrate the past, antique furniture and iconic historic items such as an old bicycles or dial up phones.

The industrial look evokes feelings of ingenuity and comfort.  The industrial look is also Eco-friendly as it uses salvaged, recycled industrial materials and re-purposes them.  Think of old warehouses, factories and laboratories, exposed pipes, high ceilings with exposed beams, exposed brick walls, concrete or wood floorboard and accessories such as wheels, wires, pendant lights... This trend is urban & gritty; it has a youthful feel to it with attention given to lighting, monochrome colours, linear structures and urban backdrops.
