Where most pedestals are designed to sit on the floor, a more economical display option are acrylic risers. These display options are also available in a variety of other materials and provide a featured product to stand up and out from the ordinary inventory on the shelf or display table.
Although pedestals could be used on a display table, a smaller riser version is sometimes all you need to make your featured item the first thing your customer sees when they walk into your store or up to a display table.
Try using multiple levels with acrylic risers to feature different colors of an item. Like a pedestal, an acrylic riser allows you to lift up items above the rest of the display. However, the display footprint is usually smaller. So, acrylic risers are best suited for smaller inventory items or grouped products.
Tips to remember when using acrylic risers:
- Use multiple levels when featuring products that are available with multiple features. For example, you have a new silver picture frame that you want to feature and it is available in three sizes. Use three different levels of risers on a display table to show your customers the differences.
- Consider the display space required. Don’t put large items on a small platform that may be damaged if knocked over.
- Consider placement in your store. Where most acrylic risers are sturdy, if your aisles are narrow, you still run the risk of a customer knocking over your display with their bags.
- Don’t go overboard. Although acrylic risers are great at creating focal points for your products, if there are too many focal points in your store, you lose your customer’s attention by overloading them. They don’t know where to focus their attention and therefore walk away without making a purchase. Unless your store is a gallery or museum, consider using only a few risers and pedestals strategically placed throughout the store.
Acrylic risers are considered economical display fixtures and can be added at any time compared to purchasing larger display tables and shelving which need to be figured into your store’s layout. Acrylic risers can be moved in and out of the store, offering many options for your seasonal and new inventory items. So consider rising to the occasion and add these functional displays to promote your inventory and see the pedestals pay for themselves.
