The Benefits of Pallet Stands and Pallet Signholders for Retail Stores

The Benefits of Pallet Stands and Pallet Signholders for Retail Stores 

One segment of the retail market that has grown significantly in the last decade is big box stores like Wal-Mart, Target, Costco, and Sam's Club, which has created a new retail environment designed around a "bulk shopping" experience. Supermarkets have also embraced this format, including for produce and seasonal merchandise.  With this new shopping experience comes new visual display requirements including the need to incorporate merchandising pallets into the visual merchandising plan.  In this blog post, we will discuss the many ways to incorporate pallets into the visual merchandising plan, the benefits of using pallet stands and accessories in retail stores and the types of pallet stands, pallet signholders and pallet accessories that are available.

The Growth of Big Box Stores

Bulk retail consumer shopping has been consistently on the rise over the last twenty years - 26.6% to be exact, according to Food Institute, even during a pandemic.  And retail stores like Home Depot, Sams Club, Wal-Mart and Costco have created a visual merchandising experience that accommodates the bulk shopper.  
One of the tools that these big box retailers use is retail pallet sign stands, a simple way for stores to display bulk items while reducing handling time for associates.  Unfortunately, studies show that About 60% of promotional displays, like retail pallet stands, aren’t executed properly, but when they are, the right retail displays can bring a 193% sales lift.  
“As the demand for bulk shopping continues to increase and retailers look for ways to optimize the in-store shopping experience, the need for smart, functional, and versatile visual display solutions is vital,” says Testrite Visual President, Jeffrey Rubin, “We believe our pallet stands, signholders and accessories are going to provide retail visual merchandising designers with a versatile, simple and effective tool that seamlessly integrates with how retailers sell today.”   

Visual Merchandising With Pallets 

In today’s busy retail environment, businesses are looking for ways to streamline the process of getting products off a delivery truck, onto the sales floor, and into the hands of paying customers.  Many products arrive in bulk on pallets.  In recent years, it has become increasingly popular to utilize the existing pallets on the sales floor to reduce the processing time, especially in retail settings and “big box stores”.  
Stores have also invested in ballet shaped merchandising displays, whether for produce, drinks, or showcasing larger merchandise (e.g. coolers and grills). 
While wood pallets are not very aesthetically pleasing, with the right visual display products, retailers can make their pallet displays pop with graphics, hardware, and accessories that engage the customers, maintain a clean and safe shopping environment, and help drive more sales.
One of the best ways to make your pallets appropriate for the retail environment is with affordable pallet stands, pallet signholders, and pallet accessories that will streamline the handling of new palleted merchandise in stores. Now businesses can create a professional visual display with the existing pallet storage units that the product will arrive in when it is delivered to the final destination.  

Visual Display Products for Pallets

When using pallets in your visual display plan it helps to use the right products and accessories.  

Fixed Pallet Display Solutions 

Fixed pallet stands and fixed pallet sign holders are perfect for static installations where a stationary height will suffice.  This type of economical pallet stand offers a quick and easy way to display products to make sure they are seen by customers.
Because pallet stands are lightweight, it is important to have a heavy shovel base that will easily slide under the pallets. Fixed pallet stands are economical and easy to set up and take down when not in use.

Adjustable Pallet Stands 

Adjustable pallet stands and adjustable pallet signholders use square telescopic tubing so the visual display unit can be easily adjusted to different heights.  Telescopic pallet signholders are ideal for retailers as they allow for maximum flexibility in terms of height and positioning. 
Telescopic pallet signholders are also great for creating visual merchandising displays in tight spaces where other display solutions may not fit.  With their adjustable height and width, these signholders provide a cost-effective way to increase sales, enhance customer experience, and provide better visual merchandising solutions for retailers. 
The adjustable features make it easier to adapt the steel pallet stands and accessories to the specific needs of each individual store, allowing for unique product placements that can draw attention to any item. Furthermore, the use of telescopic tubing adds another layer of convenience since it allows you to adjust the height quickly and easily.  Adjustable pallet signholders with graphics allow the retailer to create dynamic and eye-catching visual displays which can entice potential customers into the store. In conclusion, the use of pallet stands and pallet signholders is an excellent way for stores to add value and convenience to their retail displays.

Pallet Stand Accessories 

 Do you want to sell reusable bags from your pallet signholder? Or to add brochures, sales flyers, credit card application offers, or other sales tools next to your pallets?  Pallet stand accessories help you maximize your visual display hardware! 
One of our new, unique Pallet stand accessories is an attachment to add an arm to hold reusable shopping bags. These can be added to Testrite’s Pallet Signholders, or customized to fit existing pallet signholders made by other manufacturers.
Accessories might also include literature display solutions so you can include pamphlets, trifolds, brochures or rack cards with your pallet.  Now your pallet stand becomes an information center to assist with lead generation and as an valuable sales tool.  With Testrite Visual we offer both a catalog holder, and 4” x 1 ½” acrylic snap on pamphlet holder.  If you need to integrate any other accessories just ask, custom is our speciality
At Testrite Visual, we can combine accessories to truly customize your pallet stand for any application!   
Benefits of Pallet Stands and Sign Holders 
Pallet signholders are an invaluable tool for big box stores, grocery stores, and retail stores alike. 

Increased Sales

Using retail pallet stands and accessories as a visual merchandising tool is proven to increase sales in retail stores. With telescopic pallet signholders, retailers can maximize the visibility of their products to ensure that all items are clearly visible to the customer.  These pallet signholders, able to go up to 79” High, can be positioned above large and bulky merchandise to ensure visibility. The telescopic tubing of these adjustable pallet stands also helps to maximize floor space and improve customer communication by making it easier to locate products so customers to find what they are looking for. By utilizing pallet stands and accessories, retailers can create a visual display that entices customers to purchase, leading to increased sales.  

Improve Visual Merchandising  

Telescopic tubing allows the retailer to adjust the height of the pallet stand and customize the size of their retail display, Additionally, adjustable pallet stands offer retailers the flexibility to move and reposition their displays as needed, giving them a competitive edge over other stores. 
Telescopic pallet signholders allow for visual merchandising and retail display without the need for bulky tertiary hardware or extra shelving. Pallet stands also increase safety by reducing the need for product handling, allowing locations to work with existing pallets and get product onto the floor faster.  This streamlined approach helps to create a more efficient and organized retail experience.
Enhance In-Store Customer Experience 
Online and ecommerce shopping accounted for about 14% of sales in 2022 so creating a in-store customer experience remains important to retailers.  Our metal pallet signholders and pallet stand accessories are perfect for displaying product information, promotional materials, sales flyers and more to customers as they visit a retail store.   Easily integrate graphics using our J hooks or Framettes ™ and swap out graphics as needed for sales, specials or product changes. 
Use single arm pallet stands or double arm pallet stands and supply reusable shopping bags to shoppers as they shop.  This is a convenience to shoppers and could contribute to new revenue streams.  Pallet stands work with vertical or horizontal installation and are available in various sizes and heights, allowing you to customize your display according to the space and layout of your store. With pallet stands visual merchandisers can create a clean aesthetic that will appeal to in store shoppers and deliver valuable information that support their shopping experience.  

Ease of Use for Associates 

Our products are designed with convenience in mind.  Associates can easily set up these pallet stands in just a few minutes, with just a few simple tools.  Order your pallet stand with our 11 x 14” Framette™ accessory so as products change from day to day, or week to week, it is so easy to swap out graphics.  When not in use, units disassemble very quickly and easy with compact storage.  


 The most durable pallet stands are going to be made from 100% metal construction with a heavy steel base that easily slides under the pallet.  Plastic pallet stands and plastic pallet signholders may be more affordable early on but they can discolor, and break easily,   Testrite’s pallet stand solutions are made from 100% all metal construction with a heavy 4x14” square space or shovel base - depending on the model - that easily attaches to the hardware.  These units are durable, yet still lightweight and easy to set up and take apart.

What are Snap Frames

When it comes to visual display hardware and graphics, there is one solution that sets a whole new standard and never goes out of style - Snap Frames and SnapFrame Light Boxes. Today, we are going to explore Snap Frame solutions from Testrite Visual, how they have developed over the last seven decades, and the solutions we are bringing to market today to brands all around the world.

What are Snap Frames

Let us begin with the most basic question? What is a Snap Frame? Snap frames are front-loading media frames. Snap Frames are typically designed to be Wall Mounted with a hinged, spring-loaded frame profile. This design allows the end user to snap open the wall mountable snap frame from all four sides to easily insert the desired media without having to remove it from the wall. Art changes are fast and easy. Because the graphic is held on 4 sides, you can also use a thinner and less expensive graphic. Whether you choose to use paper, styrene, or another thin graphic media, there’s no need for a thick rigid graphic with a SnapFrame, allowing for lower cost graphic changeouts.

Snap Frames are one of the most popular visual display solutions available today to display sales, specials and other marketing messages in retail stores; to display menus and messaging in restaurants; to communicate with guests in hospitality applications; to communicate with employees and customers in entrances and break areas; to share hours and options in elevators; and much more.

When it comes to SnapFrames, you want a frame that has a really strong graphic grip. When you walk into a store and see a frame ¼ open on all sides, it just doesn’t look right. At Testrite, our customers have told us that our SnapFrames have the strongest grip in the industry! We also offer a wide range of SnapFrame profiles and style options.

We have the quick graphic change snap frame you are looking for!

What is a Snap Frame Lightbox?

Niche Cosmetics 1

Snap Frames offer quality and convenience. What could make this solution even better? Lighting!

The Supraslim LED SnapFrame Lightbox delivers the beauty and convenience of a Snap Frame with the stunning companion of 6500k color temperature lighting. This lighting is ideal for bringing retail and brand graphics to life.

These ultra slim SnapFrame Lightboxes are ¾” thick and ¾” profile. These are Made in USA lightboxes and are available in standard sizes, and also as custom Snapframe Light boxes. Custom snapframe lightboxes are available in a minimum quantity of one for maximum convenience!

Anytime you add light to your visual display solution you immediately help grab attention and make your messaging stand out. Need printing to go with your SnapFrame lightbox? We can help with that too!

The Snap Frame Market

Testrite Visual is a family-owned and operated American Manufacturer. We have seven decades of experience manufacturing lightboxes in the United States.

Before we entered the SnapFrame Lightbox market we took a look at what was available to our customers.

  1. Importing Snap Frames and Snap Frame Light Boxes
  2. Dometic Snap Frames and Snap Frame Lightboxes

We brought in a range of samples, and frankly, we didn’t like the quality or aesthetic of either option.

Imported lightboxes were finicky and subject to easy damage by touching them the wrong way. Imported lightboxes are also a challenge especially when you consider the long lead times, cost, and inconvenience for imported goods. Lightboxes at full size are large and need to be protected, so importing them takes up a lot of room. Domestic lightboxes made by others lacked the performance we would expect from a high-quality LIT lightbox or LED lightbox.

So, Testrite Visual set out to manufacture a “Made in the USA” solution snap frame lightbox that delivered quality, value, convenience, and a great aesthetic. We’re proud to say we’ve won every “bake off” we’ve been in, where customers selected our product after extensive testing of multiple solutions.

Standard Solutions

When it comes to visual display solutions we know customers want options! This is why we have three standard solutions available for our SupraSlim Lightboxes.


Customers can select their desired size and choose from a horizontal or vertical orientation. We also offer the frame in Satin Silver or Matte Black. Since graphics integration is at the heart of everything we do, customers have the option to purchase a Backlit Graphic to pair with their LED snap frame or lightbox, with custom graphic printing available.

Construction & Design

We take great pride, and great care, in the design and construction of our snapframes and snapframe lightboxes. When you look at a Testrite SnapFrame or Snap Frame Lightbox you will notice a modern, clean design created by the precise miters, a super thin ¾” depth and an equally thin ¾” front leaves design with a ¾” profile.

Our units are made from lightweight aluminum alloy construction which makes it easy to work with and install. These units will accept Duratranse graphics up to 1/32” thick and a clear protective lens is included with every order along with the wall mounting hardware.

We offer both LIT snap frames and LIT lightboxes. These are illuminated poster snap frames that utilize LED bulbs and an acrylic Light Guide Panel (LGP) to disperse light evenly across a displayed sign or poster. Standard, we perimeter light our acrylic panel on the two longest sides, and include a built-in reflective back panel. This combination offers fantastic light dispersion while still providing low voltage and energy efficiency, 6500° K color temperature and utilizes a low 24V external power source.

Non-LIT Snapframes and Non-LIT lightboxes offer the ease of front-loading graphics with the beauty of a slim frame profile. Our LIT Snapframes are UL Certified and bear an individually numbered holographic UL sticker on each frame. While our lightboxes are ideal for wall mounting, they are not for use in high heat environments nor in direct sunlight.

Customers are eager to pair custom backlit snap frames with non-lit frames because LIT SnapFrames and LIT lightboxes can be used to really grab attention, especially in retail; while Non-LIT Snapframes and snapframe lightboxes can be used to inform and deliver custom messaging. It is a perfect combination! We offer our ¾” SupraSlim in both lit and non-lit options, so your frames will match!

Custom Solutions

Speaking of custom… Testrite is your go-to solution for US-made custom light boxes and custom snap frames. We have expanded our custom capabilities for lightboxes and snap frames due to increasing interest from the retail industry. SnapFrame Lightboxes are becoming more and more popular for retail store fixtures, but for regional and nationwide rollouts, every store is a little different, so they may require a different size or configuration.

Because of our advanced design and manufacturing capabilities, Testrite Visual is able to offer the following custom solutions:

  • Custom widths and heights SnapFrame lightboxes
  • Custom frame depth from the wall with custom bracketry
  • Custom design to suit custom graphics
  • Custom colors including PMS color matching and RAL color matching
  • Choice of style
  • Custom sizes with a standard color
  • Custom frame finish
  • Choice of custom brackets to attach to your fixtures
  • And more.

We are also able to offer custom SnapFrames and custom SnapFrame Lightboxes starting at quantity one for the most flexible custom solution available today. We are just as happy to make a custom solution as we are a standard size, and we encourage custom requests.

New Podiums Offers Affordable Brandable Marketing Solution

flair perimete frames

Hackensack, NJ, USA - Testrite Visual, the industry leader in American made visual display hardware, is excited to introduce two new products in its line of high-quality hanging graphic solutions. These products are being rolled out as part of an effort to help printers and SignShops grow their sales. 

The two new products being rolled out are the Floating Stand-Off Mount and Flair Perimeter Frame.  The Flair Perimeter Frame and the Floating Stand-Off Mount are both designed to disappear behind the graphics which is why Printshops and Signshops love them.  

The hardware takes a back seat to the imagery so high quality prints and graphics can stand out.  The Floating Stand-Off Mount offers a frameless design, while Flair Perimeter Frames offer a thin 1/16” bevel.  Both products are made with lightweight aluminum. Use for permanent graphics, or order with Hook & Loop closure, so graphics can be changed again and again.   Testrite Visual ships these products unassembled allowing for cost efficient packaging and easy storage.    

This hardware is ideal for retail and hospitality applications especially for corporate and hotel artwork.   

“Testrite Visual has been a go-to partner for printers and SignShops all around the country for over five decades,” says Testrite President, Jeffrey Rubin, “ We know that printers and sign shops are empowered with more capabilities than ever before in terms of being able to print onto rigid media, and these are the ideal graphic mounts to highlight their beautiful work.”

Testrite Visual is actively looking for distributors and partners to wholesale these frames to local printers and signshops.  With a secure portal for shopping, ordering, tracking, Testrite Visual makes it easy for Printers and SignShops to resell hardware to their customers to expand product offerings and increase revenue. 

Testrite Visual has strategic partnerships with hundreds of printers and SignShops all around the country.  Testrite offers Printers and SignShops a 103 year history, consistent quality, American made manufacturing and craftsmanship, with exceptional service, and modern conveniences like QuickShip, online order tracking, dropship fulfillment and more.
