5 Creative Retail Display Ideas for Powerful Impressions

5 Creative Retail Display Ideas for Powerful Impressions

Marketing success starts with creating an impression that connects to customers. This blog will provide five retail display ideas that will help your brand make an impact on your target customers.

When a customer is within the vicinity of your store, office, or event, you have ample opportunities to make a connection.

One of the best ways is to use retail displays with messaging that wows or delights your intended target and draws them into the possibilities your brand creates.

When successfully implemented, a good retail display will cause customers to leave with a package, gift cards, agreements, or at the very least favorable impressions that last.

Here are five key ways you can make an impression that amplifies your connection to your customers:

  1. Expand your brand outside your retail space
  2. Use retail display ideas that immerse customers into your brand’s lifestyle
  3. Invite customers to step into a new world with large format displays
  4. Convey your brand’s values with bold signage
  5. Create an upscale environment with wall murals

#1: Retail Display Ideas That Extend the Natural Pathway to Your Door

Go beyond a retail banner and get your foot and drive-by traffic to stop in its tracks by extending an inviting environment beyond your four walls. To capture more local business, create outdoor displays whether you’re new to the area or you’ve been there for decades.


This type of large format printing that creates signage and custom, permanent window wraps allows everyone in the vicinity to get a glimpse of what’s inside.

Any type of business would benefit, from a spin studio that wants to demonstrate the energy and community in their classes to an accounting or tax service that wants to convey calm, reliable professionalism and clients who are happy with the service.

We partnered with an acupuncture practice to amplify its connection with future prospective customers with an external retail display.

Graphics that share the promise of a welcoming practice environment combined with practical information, such as office hours, gives passers-by the information they need to act. Custom permanent wraps and vinyl lettering are a successful way to grab attention and encourage more people to visit your business.

Extend Your Brand Into Homes

Adding marketing collateral with the same theme offers clients and prospects reminders of the acupuncture practice, extending the retail display experience even further beyond their door.


#2: Product Display Ideas That Drive Lifestyle Experiences

Each time customers step into your store or office, your retail displays should be aligned with your brand. When a cutting-edge golfing lifestyle brand offered Artisan Colour the opportunity to translate its energetic brand into a retail display experience, the creative team at Artisan knew exactly what to do.

PXG is Bob Parsons’ latest enterprise, a golf equipment manufacturing company that is innovating club design and fashion for the committed golf fan. The team was challenged to create the “18 Ways Holiday Campaign” by translating a digital marketing campaign into in-store marketing that embraces the PXG brand.

The team sought to understand the brand, campaign goals, and consumer behavior to develop the right strategy to create a show-stopping display campaign.

Bringing a High-End Golfer’s Experience to Life

The immersive lifestyle means that shoppers can imagine themselves on the links in the most stylish outfits and clubs that are customized to their body type, athleticism, and swing.

The team also worked on a demanding production timeline, delivering on time while optimizing the client’s spend. Here’s what Artisan delivered and how they did it:

Product Display Ideas & Signage

The multi-dimensional display embodies a golfing lifestyle that draws shoppers’ attention. The display and signage medium was selected to create a smooth, wrinkle-free surface at an affordable price. The medium helped to save time because they didn’t need to re-do a wrinkled image.

Hangtags & Retail Gift Receipts Take Your Brand Into Homes

Experts at small-format printing, in addition to large format design and printing, the creative team designed hangtags and receipts that can travel to shoppers’ homes to extend the memorable brick-and-mortar environment.

Prototyping  Innovative Retail Display Ideas

In addition to sourcing the right material, the Artisan team used the latest print production techniques and ensured quality during the prototyping step, fabrication, and when the project was rolled out. The quality control process is embedded into the production process at Artisan Colour, starting when production begins and ending when the project is installed and on display. The project was delivered on time and under budget.

Delivering Quality Consistently

The campaign’s sophistication hit the right note to deliver the best tactile experience and PXG’s marketing and creative team has requested Artisan Colour’s expertise on subsequent campaigns. 

#3: Retail Display Ideas That Get Visitors Into Your World

Some environments call for an immersive experience, namely locations where the crowd is an important part of the experience—bars, sports arenas, and conference centers are all good examples.


Environmental graphics and signage help guests become part of your brand’s story. Here are just a few ideas that you can apply to your space.

Guests Get Into the Game with Custom Floor Coverings

The Gila River’s Sports HQ at Vee Quiva Casino took on a brighter life with an amazing G3 floor mat vinyl. It’s only 12’ X 22’ but it transforms a bar floor into a football field! You can see the end zone and the yardage markers, inviting you to act out gameplays so you can feel as if you’re part of the game.

Hockey fans love the rink-inspired flooring made of adhesive vinyl that is scuff-resistant environmental graphics printing. The adhesive is strong and adheres to carpets, vinyl, and tile, which is perfect for the hockey rink.

A Nissan SUV was showcased on the vinyl floor and displayed in the casino; you can see it’s tough as well as beautiful. Want to know more about how floor graphics add to the experience or can be used for advertisement? 

Frosted Decals Transform a Space

During football season, Arizona’s home team was featured in frosted cut vinyl decals that were put on the windows to add energy to the space. Both the  Cardinals’ logo and outlines of football players decorated the space.


Environmental Graphics Printing Makes a Statement for #YouDoYou

As part of the “Reclaim What’s Yours Campaign”, Artisan printed #YouDoYou signage that completely enveloped Wild Horse Pass casino. OH Partners created the campaign and graphics, while Artisan printed the environmental signage.

Slogans decorated escalators and bulkheads, and a 20’ mural brought the campaign to life.

In addition, die-cut slot toppers were used throughout the casino.

All the elements united to elevate the theme, making an incredible impact on visitors.

The mesmerizing effect of environmental graphics and signage would be lost in smaller images. By allowing oversized images and meaningful slogans to dominate the space, visitors can easily connect to the space.
