Examples are shelf banners, wobblers, and talkers. Shelf frame is another example that we always see in retail stores.

Sets Brand Apart

The blue cardboard frame was an interesting little touch on the shelf. It makes the products pop as it creates an eye-catching color contrast. Because of this on-shelf marketing display, it has become easier to find this particular brand.

Creates an Immediate Call to Action

Without the frame, the bottles of cooking oil will just be another item on the shelf. But the frame diverted our attention toward the products and away from its competitors. It creates an immediate call to action that is hard to ignore. In addition to that, their social media accounts are also posted on the frame so that customers may be enticed to check out their online page.


When faced with rows of similar-looking products, buyers tend to buy products that easily catch their attention. I did take one of these cooking oil bottles simply because I felt the display had made an impact on me. The products were located in the back with less foot traffic, so adding the frame was a smart way to make that section of the store livelier with a pop of color.


Our Key Takeaways…
