Free Standing Display Units (FSDUs) are the ultimate way to strengthen your brand, boost your sales, and obtain prime retail position in major retailers.
Are you looking for someone to create a custom cardboard display stand from scratch?
Or maybe you have a good idea of how it should look, and just need a price?
Either way, you will benefit from our inventive FSDU design team!
The FSDU Design Team will take your concept, whether this is a
professional 3D visual, or a simple hand-drawn sketch, or even just a
verbal outline of what products need to be displayed, and then work out
the most practical way to construct your free standing display unit.
Practical aspects such as the weight of your products, the
stability of the stand, how long it needs to last for in-store, what
materials we can afford to use within your budget, etc; will all be
considered as we work on your design.
We can also advise on visual improvements you may want to
consider, and come up with a totally unique custom-made cardboard
display stand that really gets you noticed!

Cardboard Display Stands (Off-fixture displays)
Bespoke Free Standing Display Units or Floor Standing Display Units
(FSDUs) are the perfect way to create a fully branded oasis within a
crowded retail environment. Your product can shine without the
surrounding clutter of rival brands, and you can guarantee your product
will always be presented in the same way due to the unique design of the
stand. ‘Off fixture display’ (or OFD) is simply another term used to
describe a free-standing cardboard display unit.
Envoprint’s bespoke cardboard floor display stands are built to last,
we use premium grades of card, build strength into the key strain
points, use special moisture-resistant coatings, etc. Helping you to
stand out from the crowd, custom-built FSDU stands greatly promote
impulse buying and assist consumers in selecting the product amidst an
abundance of alternatives.
Isle end stands are particularly sought after, and Envoprint will
work with you and the retailer every step of the way to ensure you
FSDU Design Services
With a custom designed FSDU, you have full control of how your product is presented to your potential customers.
Some of our clients are able to send us finished artwork, set-out on a
cutter guide template for their display stand, that is virtually
print-ready. However these clients are very much in the minority, so we
offer differing levels of design service according to your
Our 3-star design service includes an initial consultation to assess your ideas (after all you know best what you want to achieve and the requirements of your target clients), we then create a practical, strong, easy-to-assemble template (which is of course our area of expertise as that’s what we do all-day every-day). We can then send you a 3D visual of how this will look, and if you are happy with this, we then send you a template for the printable areas of the stand for you to set out your artwork onto. Once we have this back from you we will then create a further 3D visual including the print design. If required, a physical prototype can be produced and sent to you at any stage during the design process, this is a chargeable extra, however usually all or part of this charge will be credited later when you go ahead with the bulk order for a number of cardboard display stands.
Our 4-star design service includes everything in the 3-star service above, the difference being we also design the print graphics to go on the stand,
using any images/logos/text you may supply, we’ll take your suggestions
on how it should look and work with these, however if you want to give
us a free hand we’ll add in a few extra features you may not have
thought of and create something really stunning that sells hard for you
and promotes your brand image. If you don’t have a specific idea in
mind how the stand should look, then as part of our 4-star design service we can create a brand-new design concept from scratch, to display your items in the most effective and practical way.
Our top level 5-star design service includes
everything in our 4-star service but goes deeper at the initial
consultation stage, not only will we discuss your needs very carefully,
but we will conduct in-depth market research on your behalf,
speaking to both the retailers and the potential end users you are
trying to reach as needed, to assess the retailers requirements and the
desires and motivation drivers of your target audience. We will then
present back to you the results of our research and our proposals
leading out from the data collected, to check it fits with your industry
knowledge and the goals you wanted to achieve with the Display Unit.
As well as being beautiful or striking to look at; all of our display designs incorporate many practical
design features, your requirements for needing an FSDU that is easy to
assemble, stable, strong, and durable, are all carefully considered.

Expertise, artistic design, and rigorous testing are what sets Envoprint apart.
All our FSDUs stands are custom built to your exact requirements.
Envoprint can guide you through the regulations of the retail
environment, weight test for durability, help you select the correct
euro hooks for your product, advise on mop trays to prevent the cleaner
lady making your stand go soggy, fit shelves to the size of your
products, brainstorm the best way to display pricing and offers, etc!
High speed prototype production is another service
Envoprint offer, even complex floor standing display units can be
produced in just a few days, allowing you to meet tight deadlines for
exhibitions, retail tender opportunities, or simply just help you to
keep your marketing manager happy! Having a stand look good on paper is
quite different from seeing and handling a physical sample. A
prototype is often the only way to ensure the design concept is actually
going to work in real life, particularly where visionary new design
concepts are used.
Whilst 100% cardboard display stands are most popular; we can also
create foamex free standing display units, correx floor standing display
units, or design FSDUs using a mixture of these and other materials to
give the best combination of appearance, strength, and
cost-effectiveness. For example our free standing tablet stands are
proving very popular, these are constructed mainly of cardboard but have
a tamper-proof foamex insert at the top to prevent theft of the
touch-screen tablet that we build into the stand. The cardboard and
foamex tablet stands also have weights in the base for incredible
stability – we’ll source whatever materials are needed to make your
stands 100% fit for purpose!
A recent 3 storey expansion within our Chesterfield production
facility in 2016 makes us one of the most advanced FSDU manufacturers in
What should I expect to pay for an FSDU Display?
Another commonly asked question!! Prices range from as little as £15 to over £400 depending on a number of factors, including:
a) The quantity required
b) How much design time is needed – simple copy-cat ‘I want one like
that one’ stands don’t need much design time, but a really stunning
‘Wow, I’ve never seen a stand like that before’ takes a lot longer. This
is because not only do we put a lot of effort into getting them to look
right, but we also extensively test all our new designs in real life,
to ensure they are strong and easy to assemble, as well as looking
c) Print coverage and special finishes such as lamination and reflective foils
d) Accessories required, such as euro hooks, mop trays, pricing
strips, and any bespoke fixtures that we include as part of the display
