Display or retail packaging is the exterior presentation of a product designed to attract consumers’ attention when presented in retail environments. It is important in marketing and branding because it acts as a silent salesperson communicating the product’s worth. Businesses invest in strategic packaging design and execution to leverage its influence on consumer behavior and brand perception.

Benefits of Display Packaging

The following benefits make retail packaging a cornerstone of successful marketing strategies:

Versatility in Retail Environments

Display packages offer unparalleled adaptability, seamlessly fitting into diverse retail environments such as supermarkets, convenience stores, and specialty boutiques. Their ability to be displayed on shelves and countertops or hung from racks ensures optimal visibility and accessibility regardless of the store layout. This maximizes exposure and potential sales opportunities.

Increased Brand Visibility

Display packaging is a dynamic billboard for brands, elevating their visibility and presence within the crowded retail landscape. By featuring eye-catching designs, vibrant colors, and prominent branding elements, it commands attention and reinforces brand recognition among consumers. It also ensures that brands stand out from competitors, whether displayed strategically at eye level or in high-traffic areas.

Effective Product Differentiation

Well-designed packaging is a powerful tool for product differentiation, allowing businesses to highlight their unique selling points. It helps consumers make informed purchasing decisions and cultivates loyalty by delivering memorable and satisfying experiences. Additionally, it communicates the product’s value proposition through innovative design elements, such as distinctive shapes, textures, and graphics.

Cost-Effective Marketing

Unlike traditional advertising channels, which require ongoing investment and reach limitations, display packages offer a one-time cost for design and production. They also maximize marketing ROI and drive sales without the need for additional advertising expenditures. This can be achieved by effectively communicating key brand messages and promotional offers directly during purchase decision-making.

Types of Display Packaging Solutions

Here are the different types of packaging solutions and their respective applications:

Point-of-Purchase (POP) Displays

POP displays are strategically positioned near the checkout counter or other high-traffic areas within retail stores. They are designed to capture consumers’ attention just before they make a purchase decision, often showcasing small items or impulse buys.

Counter Top Displays

Counter Top displays are placed on countertops or other flat surfaces near the point of sale, such as cash registers or checkout lines. They mostly showcase smaller products or promotional items, offering convenience and visibility to customers as they complete their transactions.

PDQ Displays

PDQ displays are typically placed on endcaps. There can be several of them taking up the entire endcap as well, or just one as premium product placement. They mostly showcase smaller products or promotional items, offering convenience and visibility to customers as they complete their transactions.

Floor Displays

Floor displays are freestanding installations positioned on the sales floor, typically near aisles or entrances, to attract shoppers’ attention. They come in various shapes and sizes and can accommodate an array of products, from beverages and snacks to electronics and household goods.

Pallet Displays

Pallet displays are large, sturdy structures designed to hold multiple product units and are often placed on pallets for easy transportation and setup. They are commonly used in warehouse clubs, supermarkets, or big-box retailers to showcase bulk or discounted items, such as beverages or seasonal merchandise depending on the store requirements.


Standees are life-size cardboard cutouts or three-dimensional displays featuring brand characters, product images, or promotional messages. They are typically placed in high-traffic areas or near product aisles to grab shoppers’ attention and create a memorable brand experience.

Dump Bins

Dump bins are open containers filled with discounted or promotional merchandise, allowing customers to sift through and discover hidden treasures. They are placed at the end of aisles or near checkout counters to encourage impulse purchases and clearance sales.
