What are shelf talkers used for?
Shelf talkers (aka shelf barkers) are designed for retailers to add additional information to their shelf edges. These are commonly used to display special offers and prices, as the addition of extra signage simultaneously attracts and informs customers, increasing their likelihood of spotting a deal that appeals to them.
What different types of shelf talker are there?
Our shelf talkers are designed to fit onto retail shelf edges in different ways, giving you more options over what or how you display to customer. Some shelf talkers and data strips are designed to sit flat against the shelf edge, whereas others are designed to sit at an angle, making them easier to read from above.
Some are supplied with adhesive so they can stick onto your shelf edge, but others are designed to hook into your data strip. First identify what kind of shelf you own, and then you will be able to figure out which shelf talker you want.
What are hinged shelf talkers for?
Hinged shelf talkers allow you to display a slightly bigger sign without obstructing the products below. As it is hinged, it easily moves out of the way when lifting products, without risking the shelf barker falling off, breaking or damaging your products.
