A point-of-sale display (POS display) is a specialized form of sales promotion that is found near, on, or next to a checkout counter (the “point of sale”).
As virtually everything can be customizable, there is a huge range of options when it comes to POS displays. For a POS display everything from the brand name, the number of shelves, shape, colour to the material used can be customized. Materials used can completely transform the look of the display, and in turn, the customers view of the product or brand itself.
The main point of POS displays is that these are not only meant to sell and advertise your product but to sell your brand to prospective customers.
