Counter Top Display Units (CTU) or Counter Display Units (CDU) are small, display units that are perfect for displaying examples of your products, capturing attention and strengthening brand awareness.

Why choose a bespoke Counter Display Unit?

Counter top display units are extremely effective at encouraging impulse buying as they are right in your consumers’ eyelines and push sales at the point of purchase.  A great CTU is eye-catching and informative and can maximise brand awareness and recognition.  CDUs are lightweight and portable so make the perfect retail display solution.

A customised counter display unit allows you to show off your products in their best light and allow your products to stand out in a busy retail environment. Our CTUs can include integral LED lighting and extremely vivid digital printing to stunning effect. Our great design solutions will ensure that your brand ethos and product quality will be consistently reflected in the display units.

Countertop Display Units can display a variety of products or a whole product range, as well as provide information and working demonstration models to really tempt consumers. We design our high quality counter top displays to be versatile, robust and extremely effective. With years’ of experience we are guaranteed to find the perfect solution for you.

Do we make cardboard counter top display units?

Yes we do! Cardboard retail displays are a cost effective and environmentally friendly way of producing high volume CTUs. Cardboard CTUs are easy to assemble and to disassemble and can be flat-packed for ease of distribution and storage. They are perfect for displaying cosmetics, pens, keyrings, e-cigarettes and vaping products and other smaller, less premium products.

Do we make plastic or metal CDUs?

Again, yes we do! In fact we make our CTUs out of many materials including acrylic, steel and timber.  Acrylic retail displays are particularly popular as they can be edge-lit with LED lights which makes them especially eye-catching. An acrylic counter display is more durable than cardboard CTUs and perfect for more premium products and product launches.  We can make sure of vacuum forming to create high volumes of CDUs at a great price.

Our most stunning CTUs have been created with steel or timber and are perfect for displaying heavier products or when looking for an unusual design solution.
