  • Retail sign holders at Wrights GPX Plastics

    Retail sign holders holds prints in place so that you can promote and advertise in the most efficient way possible. Most sign holders are made from plastic, usually acrylic or PVC. A sign holder can be wall mounted, hanging or freestanding and are often seen in shops, offices, reception and waiting areas, hotels and catering locations.

    The term sign holders and posters holders are often used interchangeably. Sign holders tend to be smaller than poster holders as they are used to hold notices, prices, menus and statutory information. Poster holders are larger, usually A3 size and bigger, and are used to display larger posters, photographs, imagery and notices.


    Choosing sign holders

    Retail sign holders include traditional framed print holders or snap frames but increasingly they refer to a plastic sleeve in which the poster is placed. 

    PVC sign holders are the cheapest option.  PVC offers less clarity than acrylic and is brittle and liable to break or crack if dropped but for day-to-day use for sign holders that are not required for aesthetic purposes they are ideal.

    Acrylic sign holders offer greater clarity, durability and UV resistance. Although perhaps twice the cost of their PVC equivalent, they are still inexpensive and are the most popular choice.


    Types of retail sign holders

    Here at Wrights Plastics GPX, we have many different types of retail sign holders to choose from.

    • Hanging sign holders - designed to hang from ceiling or shelving. The construction may include holes for hooks so they can be hung from the ceiling or a recessed groove that fits over risers or epos on shelves. Hanging sign holders are ideal for displaying important signs from available ceiling space or on display shelves.
    • Wall mounted sign holders - attached to a wall or upright surface (display panel, door etc). Some are constructed with keyholes for attaching over screws or hooks. Others may be attached by suckers or self-adhesive stickers. Wall mounted sign holders make use of valuable wall space to display essential print – brand or product info, price or promotional info etc.
    • Free standing sign holders - requires no fixing but supports itself on a base. There are a number of different designs that can include front or side opening options and a double sided version. They can be used across any location. Placed on shelves, in window displays and on counter tops they can display essential print comms to customers, staff, visitors, etc.

  • Everything you need to know about what Slatwall is and how you can use it

    Slatwall is a common term used when speaking about retail solutions, but actually, what is Slatwall? Slatwall is a building material that is often used to create retail displays. Using different panels with t-shaped grooves, Slatwall displays can be created. Slatwall shelves, hooks, and trays can be inserted into the grooves and completely bespoke shop displays can be created.Most Slatwall is manufactured from MDF, although other materials can be used. 


    Retail Slatwall - the benefits 

    Slatwall has proved to be a very versatile system for retailers. It is relatively inexpensive, can be fitted easily and offers a flexible display option. Other stores might use fixed display products such as shelving or bespoke display units. These need to be replaced to create a new display. 

    Slatwall allows retailers to more easily reconfigure displays and promotions. Slatwall shelves, racks, trays and hooks are used to create a display. However, once this has grown ineffective or a new product range needs to be promoted and displayed, these accessories can be easily removed. By swapping and changing Slatwall accessories, a newly configured display can be created. 


    What is Slatwall?

    As leading Slatwall suppliers, you’ve come to the right place if you want to know what Slatwall is. Slatwall is an off-the-shelf display solution so it does not come with the cost of bespoke planning and installation. Panels in the required combination are fixed to the walls and are ready to be ‘accessorised’ straight away. Joiners and builders can install – no specialist retail installation services are required.

    The huge range of Slatwall shelves and accessories are also a huge advantage for the retailer as it offers maximum display flexibility at a reasonable cost. Individually these accessories are not expensive so it’s not costly to build up a collection of accessories. As with any such display, imagination and visual flair are important but the accessories will allow any retailer to achieve stunning PoS displays.


    Is Slatwall recyclable?

    Even at their low cost, Slatwall and associated accessories are durable and safe for a retail environment. Most of the shelves are made from acrylic which is safe, shatterproof and recyclable when it reaches end of life. 

    Slatwall can also be painted in almost any colour. So it’s easy to create a uniform colour across a store or zone colours to help develop a customer journey.

  • Using a wall mounted leaflet dispenser effectively

    A wall mounted leaflet dispenser allows you to make the most of available wall space in your store. It also ensures leaflets are seen exactly where customers, clients, members and staff are looking. Here at Wrights GPX, we manufacture a range of leaflet holders for walls to help customers find the exact literature display they need. 


    Store leaflets

    Printed leaflets play an important role in any organisation. Whether they’re for pricing, product and brand information, updates on events, news, or promotions leaflets are still essential. Even in a digital age, physical literature still remains effective. But, they are ineffective if they are not seen by the very people you are reaching out to. So leaflet holders and important – and well placed leaflet holders are even more important.


    Choosing your wall mounted leaflet dispenser

    Choosing the correct wall mounted leaflet dispenser depends on a number of factors. The print size of the leaflet will decide the configuration of the leaflet holder. However, the amount of available wall space will determine the actual size of the leaflet holder.


    Different sized leaflet holders

    A large wall space will allow for a multi-tiered leaflet holder that will hold large amounts of the same leaflet or, ideally, lots of different leaflets. You’ll find multi or maxi tier leaflet holders in hotels, B&Bs, bars and gyms for example. These are an ideal way to store and promote a large number of leaflets or a variety of leaflets.

    Sectional wall mounted leaflet holders do a similar job but work horizontally instead of vertically. Choose from 3 or 4 sections and for A4 /A5 or DL leaflets holders to suit your needs.

    For smaller spaces or fewer leaflets our premium wall mounted leaflet holders offer a durable solution. Made from 1 piece construction, they are manufactured to last and have a crystal clear clarity. This enables the leaflets to be seen clearly at all times. With keyhole fixings as part of their construction, they are easy to install (and remove) and offer great value for money.

  • Snap frames for posters: how do they work?

    Snap frames for posters are incredibly popular across a wide range of stores and restaurants. Snap frames have hinged sides that open and then ‘snap’ shut to hold print in place. They can sometimes known as clip frames, grip frames or snapper frames. These frames are incredibly easy to use and update, making them a popular frame for businesses. 


    Snap frames for posters and other advertising materials

    Businesses use snap frames for posters, signs, menus, price lists, businesses notices, photographs & images, and product information to name a few. They are a quick and easy way to relay information to a consumer without verbally doing so. They can be used to grab people’s attention, whether it’s to inform, educate, or promote. When it comes to display poster frames, it’s important to use a frame that is simple in its design, but high in quality. 


    Good value poster holders

    Snap frames are visually more attractive than most poster holders. However, they are not as expensive as photo frames. Therefore, they have proved popular for businesses and other organisations. Visit any pub, club, gym, library or shop and there is likely to be a snap frame used to frame important print in that location. 


    Are all snap frames the same?

    If you are looking to buy clip frames it’s important you are going to a quality supplier.  Firstly the quality of the hinged mechanism on the frame edges is essential to the quality of the frame, especially if you will be updating them regularly. A high quality hinge is designed to be used many 100's of times. A poor quality hinge will not last as long and means the whole snap frame will need to be replaced. That makes them a poor investment even at a lower initial cost.

    The quality of the finish is important too. Used inside or outdoors, a poor quality finish will tarnish and peel quickly making the snap frame look cheap. A high quality finish will last much longer – again avoiding the need to be replaced.

    A good quality snap frame will also be robust enough to be used in even the busiest environment. Look for snap frames made from natural anodised aluminium. A good profile width should be used too. This is because it should provide a snap frame with the ability to withstand the knocks and bumps of everyday life – even if used outside. 

    Smart, great value and available in a huge range of sizes, snap frames offer a great way to hang print in any organisation.  


    Buying poster holders

    Here at Wrights GPX, we’re proud to be one of the leader manufacturers and suppliers of snap frames. We sell them in a wide range of sizes so whether it’s large snap frames or small ones you need, we’ll have the perfect print holder for you.

    Using a readily available range of off-the-shelf POS display products, retailers can maximise the use of space within the store. They can do this by adding branding, price,  and product info at the most important stages of the buying process.


    Shelf space optimisation

    In the world of retail, shelf space comes at a premium. Point of sale stands such as free-standing display units (FSDUs) counter top units (CTUs) and dump bins are ideal for maximising a store’s merchandising potential. POS display stands are ideal for maximising the use of available space on the shop floor. More products means more revenue -  bulk-buys and impulse purchases have the potential to be added to every basket.


    PoS Accessories 

    As well as introducing more shelf space, POS and POP displays can be used to draw attention to your current offering – introducing visual merchandising into the mix. Hanging signs, display cubes, posters and window clings can all be used to attract the attention of passers-by and highlight key promotions and products on offer. As highly established Point of Sale display manufacturers, we have a wide range of accessories available. With our retail solutions, you can create the perfect retail display to optimise your sales. 


    Choosing POS display solutions to boost sales

    There are a wide choice of POS display products to choose from.A successful store, showroom, salon or other retail environment will have a mix of products that are used either continually, occasionally, or seasonally. 


    Free standing display units

    Most Point of Sale display manufacturers will supply all sorts of retail units to equip your shop with. Free standing display units are perfect for catching the customer’s eye and expanding your shelf space. They are ideal for retail hotspots or queuing systems, and for putting large amounts of stock in the customer’s line of sight.

     In a survey conducted by POPAI, 90% of consumers saw a wellbeing display unit displayed in Superdrug compared to the 80% of consumers who saw a one in Boots. 



    A great way to drive impulse buys or clearance items is by using  dump bins. They support the ‘pile ‘em high, sell ‘em fast’ principle and can be used across the store to boost sales. At Wrights GPX, they are available in a range of sizes, even down to counter top versions.



    Effective signage is important for any retailer. Not only can it move customers around the store to make the most of your floor space, it also offers the chance to communicate with customers – supporting your VM activity. Done well it is also a way to support brand, too. Poster and sign holders will deliver these important messages in exactly the right place – as part of VM displays, hanging from the ceiling or walls or on counters and checkout areas.
