Benefits of Buy One Get One Free

Roaming through shops its seems to be the Buy 2 for £X has replaced the Buy One Get One Free offers, even the buy 3 and get the 4th half price is becoming ever more popular. Retailers and supermarkets seem to always have some sort of offer on the go allowing consumers to disregard their brand loyalty for those that are on offer. More often waiting  for when their brand is on offer and bulk buying.

One complication from replacing the Buy One Get One Free is allowing the consumers the time to work out if this is an affordable matter, will they need to replace something in their trolley or basket? Sometimes to afford the offers on the go they are not as always cost effective and other such questions. This is giving the time to abandon the idea all together. Buy One Get One Free allows the consumer to recognise the saving they are making and create the positive emotions that come with the word FREE making the rest of their shopping experience enjoyable.

In larger supermarkets walking up and down the aisle the deals are very clearly displayed at eye level with Clip Strips and customers are drawn to their proposition whether it is 2 for £X, Buy One Get One Free or many other promotions, Jumping out from the shelves using shelf wobblers or neatly hanging in between store offers by Hang Tabs are now everywhere.

Call 0191 2697810 or email to discuss your needs to get the consumers attention and our team of experts will help you out. Or why not take a look at products online

Customised Tape

Here at POS Tapes we pride ourselves in all our products and our high quality of customer service. When a customer has a problem we do everything we can including designing and manufacturing new products to solve their display issues.

Recently we were approached by a well-known high street retailer with over 400 store country wide with a problem they needed fixing. They had a specific request for a crystal clear removable product that would be able to stick heavy posters of 500g to the glass windows for their in-store displays for long periods of time and would also be able to withstand all types of weather changes.

Collecting all their requirements the POS team had an internal discussion with our technical and manufacturing team to find a solution. In doing so we decided that we could use our 3257 removable ProLINK and transform this from a Pad of 22mm x 22mm x 0.5mm to rolls of 50mm x 10m as we manufacture those onsite.

By doing so we were able to give our client a product that could accommodate for the weight requirements and was easier to handle in small roll form both for shipping and for their display teams.

However the main reason in choosing the ProLINK 3257 over any other POS Product was the fact it is a removable product. The ProLINK 3257 will remove cleanly from the glass after 4 weeks in the window and it will remove from the poster without damaging, therefore saving them a lot of time and money on reprints.

After our client tested the product for themselves we are proud to say this was a success and will be in-store for the Christmas displays.

This is something that we are more than happy to do for any client here at POS Tapes, Should you require any bespoke adhesive solutions please do not hesitate to contact our team to discuss on or 0191 2697810.
