  • Greeting card display stands

    Hi,

    I am due to exhibit at some craft fairs in the summer, and I wondered if anyone knows where to get good quality reasonably priced display stands from. I have seen some card board ones on the internet, but are these sturdy and durable?

    Also, is it worth getting these display stands, or are there other ways that people display their cards?

    Thanks in advance for your advice!

      I used to sell the cardboard ones that I think you're talking about (if they are the tiered ones) and yes they are very sturdy. The only downside is that they don't hold that many cards and it's only the very front row that are fully on display.

      Other ways to display their cards are in mini wicker baskets or covered shoe boxes (so customers can flick through) or if you want to showcase any particular cards use the tiny wooden easels or the wire thingies people display china plates on.

      Hope that gives you a few ideas but I'm sure more card makers will be along soon with their display ideas.

        I have a table top carousel - it accommodates square cards, or mixed sizes are OK but not as neat, 20 in all (can comfortably get 4 - 5 in each section), and takes up very little table space.

        I used to use (and still have) the cardboard display cases/boxes (now no longer used coz the edges got tatty a bit too quickly).

        I use the 'laid back' card racks - they do take up space but can make a nice display. got them off of Ebay - they are black, which I like as my biz colours are black, white and lime green.

          I have a small card rack and a larger one, which get used depending how big my table space is. I'm on the lookout for a cheapish carousel too. I also have baskets and containers that people can flick through....it seems a common thing people do - perhaps they are anxious not to miss out on something special?!

            I've found that the Stand Store on the net are really good, they have wire and cardboard stands.

                  I tend to use the cardboard ones and I find them sturdy enough but I like the idea of the wicker baskets. I think people like to have a good rummage

                    I think that is absolutely true! By having a rummage the customer is actually touching your cards and is more likely to pick them out to look more closely....and hopefully buy. Gives you more opportunity to engage with the customer too

                        Hello there - when we sold handmade cards, we went to a local wholesaler of printed cards and we were able to buy a plastic covered wire stand that had five tiers and we could display loads of cards in it.

                        We've seen other stall holders display their cards on coloured string with miniature pegs, but you'd have to make sure you had somewhere at the craft fair to tie both ends to - or you could pin the string along the front of your stall - like bunting.

                        Another idea, do you have any of those stands that people use at Christmas to display the cards they've received?

                          I have a mix of all of the above... and there are pros and cons to them all. I am sure you will quickly find what works for you and your product line. Craft fairs themselves are a great place to pick up display tips form looking at the other stalls...even those selling totally different lines.
                          Would love to see a pic of your stall display

                            I got your message through my website, but thought I would reply on here. That is a really good idea - the bunting idea - I really like it!

                            I will put a picture of my stall when I do my first fair in June (if I can work out how to add pictures here). Thanks for all your advice!
