Display Signs & Sale Signs for Retail Stores

Sale signs and displays provide retailers with an opportunity to promote their products and services, advertise special offers, and encourage upsells and cross-sells throughout their stores.

From outdoor signage such as sidewalk signs, window graphics, and banner flags to indoor signage like POP and POS displays, wall signs, and more—display signs and sale signs work to engage customers, build your brand, and grow your business.

So, let’s take a look at how to use retail display signs and sale signs throughout your store.

Sale Signs for Retail Stores

Sales, promotions, and special offers for your retail store should be plastered everywhere—and signage is a great way to do just that. As a retailer, your goal is to attract customers and drive sales, so it is important to make all of your prospects and customers aware of your sales so that they will take advantage of them.

From outdoor signage to indoor signage and displays—there are numerous ways to communicate sales and special offers with customers in different locations of your retail store.

Types of Retail Sale Signs 

Some popular ways to promote sales and special offers include:

  • Window graphics
  • Sidewalk signs
  • Menu boards
  • Floor graphics
  • Wall signs
  • Sale posters
  • Hanging banners
  • Banner flags
  • Display signs
  • And more!

Placement of Retail Sale Signs

Sale signs for your retail store should be used strategically both inside and outside of your store. For example, be sure to incorporate outdoor retail signage—like sidewalk signage and window graphics—to grab people’s attention and promote sales as they walk by your store. And use indoor retail signage and banners—like point-of-purchase displays and hanging banners—to entice customers to buy more and advertise promotions.

Be sure to also test your signage from a variety of potential viewpoints and angles, and even consider doing some A/B testing. With A/B testing, you can test both the design of the sign and the location. Design two signs and place them in a similar location; whichever sign drove the most sales should then be tested in different locations.

Display Signs for Retail Stores

Retail product displays are the fixtures in your store that hold and promote your products. When it comes to visual merchandising, retail displays are where a lot of the action takes place, and they are typically the first point of contact between your product and customer.

Retail displays can vary from standalone point-of-purchase (POP) or point-of-sale (POS) displays, to store shelving displays, all the way to clothing displays—and how effective these displays are depends heavily on the signage used.

Regardless of the types of displays you leverage in your store, retail displays and display signs can help attract customers, retain their interest, and increase sales. 

Types of Retail Display Signs

Some popular retail display signs include:

  • Retail shelving display signs
  • Isle display signs
  • On-shelf display signs
  • Endcap display signs
  • Modular display signs
  • Display case signs
  • Window display signs
  • Entryway display signs
  • Freestanding display signs
  • Shelf stopper display signs
  • Countertop display signs
  • Dump bin signs
  • Garment rack signs
  • Display table signs
  • And more!

Placement of Retail Displays

The key to creating effective displays for your retail store is to find the best store locations that will do a lot of the work for you. In other words, if you have a top-notch product and beautiful signage to promote that product, placing the display in a low-traffic area of your store will be counterproductive. 

So, here are some great places for your custom retail display within your store:

  • The front of your store
  • Anywhere customers are lined up
  • At the end of your aisles
  • Beside items that make it easy to cross sell or upsell
  • Near the check-out line and registers to encourage impulse buys

It is important to remember that the best location for your display will vary depending on the type of retail store. For example, and endcap display might be the best location for a grocery store where shoppers linger, while taking advantage of the front of the shop might be a better idea for convenience stores. 

Be sure to crunch the numbers and measure the ROI of each display to ensure you’re seeing the desired results. If you’re not getting the ROI you’d like to see, you may need to reevaluate your strategy, your signage, or try a different location.
