Tabletop Brochure, Business Card & Magazine Display Options

Tabletop Revolving Display, Magazine & Literature RacksPresenting literature on a desk or table is sometimes one of the best ways to get your material out to customers, clients and others. This is especially the case in a lobby, reception desk or table where people frequently pass by. You can use tabletop displays to present literature such as business cards, pamphlets, brochures and magazines. So what are some of the best tabletop literature display options? I’ll go over a few customer favorites.

To begin with, you should make your literature easy to view. I recommend using a display holder or rack with a clear plastic front. This will protect literature while making it easy to view and access. If you have a lot of literature, you may want to consider a display with a carousel / revolving option.

Here are the three most common tabletop display solutions our customers use to display their literature:

  1. Tabletop Carousel / Revolving Displays – Revolving displays look nice and allow you to hold a lot of material in a relatively small amount of space. Some of our carousel tabletop literature holders are made from PETG plastic, which is extremely durable and safe. Others are made from wood and metal. Racks range from pamphlet holders to magazine holders.
  2. Tabletop Business Card Holders – Business card holders look professional, are easy for customers to access and look far better than simply sitting a stack of cards on a desk. If you have a reception desk in a lobby, you can use a tabletop business card holder with multiple pockets for a variety of different people. We offer one model of desktop business card holder that has 12 different pockets!
  3. Tabletop Literature Racks – Tabletop brochure, pamphlet and magazine holders look great, take up little desk space and come in metal wire, plastic and wood designs. Some models, designed for larger tables, can hold a combination of brochures and magazines.

Our plastic display racks are made from durable PETG plastic, which is shatterproof and safe. Our metal racks are made from heavy-gauge wire, designed to stand the test of time and our wood display racks are available in a variety of different wood stain finishes.

These three categories cover all the most popular options for displaying literature from a desk or table. With literally dozens of different models available, we are sure to have something you will like. You can find our entire selection of display racks and literature holders here.

Metal, Wood or Plastic Display Racks?

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Metal Wire Wall Mounted Magazine HolderWhether you need a magazine, literature or brochure rack, you may be wondering if you should go with metal wire, wood or plastic. Each of these styles of racks looks great and each has their benefits. I am going to cover the pros and the cons for owning each one of these display racks.

Wooden Display Racks – Wood display racks and literature holders look great. The wood grain and color has a more traditional looks and fits in well in offices that have a more natural look and feel. Wooden display racks also blend in well with existing furniture.

You will find wooden display racks in doctor’s offices, school lobbies, waiting rooms and more. These racks come in freestanding, wall and desktop designs.

Metal Magazine Racks – Metal magazine racks are some of the most durable racks available and often find their place in retail environments. These racks come in revolving / rotating, wall mounted and desktop designs. You will also frequently find these in libraries and schools. They can be used to hold magazines, books, brochures and other literature.

Plastic Literature Racks – Plastic magazine and literature racks are extremely popular in offices, lobbies, waiting rooms and other locations that need to display magazines, brochures and other material. These racks are especially popular because they are affordable, make literature easy to read and are extremely easy to clean.

Plastic racks are commonly found in buildings with a lot of children. You can find these racks in desktop and wall-mounted designs. These racks developed a bad reputation years ago because they broke so easily. Materials used today are shatter proof, durable and safe (Acrylic & PETG Plastic).

The rack you choose to hold your literature will help mold the ambiance of your waiting room, lobby or store. You can find our entire selection of magazine and literature racks here.

Clear, Acrylic, Plastic or PETG Display Racks?

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

We get asked by many of our customers what the difference is between clear, acrylic, plastic and PETG display racks. These are a lot of the common “sales” terms floating around on the Internet. Many retailers use all these terms interchangeably and it can seem a little confusing a times. The simple answer is that they are all very similar if not the same thing.

Acrylic (Plexiglas) and PETG (glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate) display racks are both clear and are made from a type of plastic. Most display racks are now made from PETG. This is because PETG plastic is more durable, resists cracking / scratching and is safer.

All of our clear plastic display racks are made from PETG. Acrylic, although not used as much now, is still a perfectly acceptable term and we will certainly understand it if you call or e-mail us. PETG plastic is designed to be shatter proof and eliminate the jagged cracked edges that used to be commonplace in older plastic displays.

There are three major types of clear display racks. These are wall mounted, corner mounted and countertop designs. The wall-mounted models, as the name states, are mounted on the wall. These are probably the most common style of clear display rack. Corner mounted are used in tight spaces because they make use of the often forgotten corner. Countertop racks are usually free standing and sit on a table or counter.
