4 Tips for Easy Assembly of Retail Point of Purchase Displays

easy-display-assemblySome assembly is required.

When hearing this phrase, you may think of vague directions, missing screws or a final display that does not resemble the one that was promised.

It doesn’t have to be that way. There’s no reason a retailer assembling a point of purchase display should have trouble. We’ve compiled some simple principles to keep in mind to take the pain out of the process.


Quickly and easily assemble retail POP displays whether in the backroom or on the retail floor. Here how:

1. Take inventory of your items before starting.

Before starting on the assembly, go through the parts list to make sure all of the pieces arrived. This is also an opportunity to grab any tools you might need and place them nearby for easy access.


2. Envision your finished product.

Do you know what your finished product is supposed to look like? This may be particularly helpful if the person assembling the display was not involved in the design process.

At McIntyre, we include a detailed instruction sheet with photos of each of our displays. Knowing what the display will look like when finished will help you keep track of your progress and better visualize the instructions.


3. Design the display with minimum components in mind.

Assembling a POP display should not be a difficult, time-consuming process. We also make sure that your display is professional, eye-catching, and assembly requires a minimal amount of components.

When designing your display, try to implement spring buttons and holes whenever possible. This eliminates the need for extra tools and helps ensure a speedy set-up.


4. Consider sending your display already assembled.

Perhaps the easiest way is just to send a display already completed and tailored with your exact specifications. That’s why at McIntyre Manufacturing, our dedication doesn’t stop when the display is built. We offer to pack and ship your customized retail displays how you want, whether that’s to your product representatives, a warehouse or to a retail store.

Our designers consider every aspect of each product they create. We provide the highest level of service for our clients and make assembly much easier by:

  • Providing detailed, easy-to-understand instruction sheets with photos
  • Designing displays to minimize the components, and as a result, reducing the number of steps required to assemble the unit
  • Limiting the number of tools needed to assemble the unit
  • Including a check list so customers can be sure they have received all of the parts before assembly

We also go the extra mile by looking at cost-savings measures on freight due to reduced shipping size.
