The fastest way to install
a cardboard display in retail

We designed the Presto Cardboard Display to be fast & easy.

Cardboard display stands are the most used point of sale item across Australian retail. They are relatively cheap, simple to use and can be designed to fit into lots of different places of a retail shop environment.


Most brands will opt to create flat packed cardboard display stands that are sent out to retail stores and then have either the retail shop staff or a merchandising team visit the stores to build them.



The time and associated merchandising cost required to assemble common point of sale displays can be significant, particularly when you have hundreds or thousands of stores to execute. Often the window of time available from retailers to rollout POS programs can be very tight, so the ability to get more done in a shorter time frame is desirable.


We created the Presto Cardboard Display Stand to be the fastest, most simplest way to get a stand installed in a retail store. It means instead of paying a merchandiser for maybe 20 or 30 minutes a visit, a stand can be set up in less than 30 seconds.


This saves thousands in paying for staff costs, resources and time. It means you can execute your in store marketing strategy for your product much faster than normal.

  • Off location displays for seasonal promotions.
  • End cap or aisle end cardboard display locations.
  • Display stands for checkout areas or bulky goods


As you can see in the video, the result of our design work speaks for itself. You literally pull it out of the flat pack and pop it up, there is no messing around trying to get bits to fit. Then you simply place the products ready for sale and the header board if that is part of the design.



The challenge was about increasing the number of stores a merchandiser can complete in a day and how to reduce the required skill level to build a stand. Our design department created the Presto Cardboard Free Standing Display Unit and it was received enthusiastically by the market.


We produced and tested dozens of prototypes and it has been used over the years for everything from baby formula, coffee, health, beauty and sports products. Another advantage is that in many cases assembly is so simple that these displays can be sent direct to store without the need to send a merchandiser at all. This is particularly helpful for retail stores in remote locations.
