Create a scene and be the talk of the town!

Make a Strong First Impression

Your window displays are as valuable as an ad in your local paper, the design of your home page, or a post on your social media when it comes to attracting customers. Whether you’re located on a busy street or in a pedestrian mall, your windows provide an amazing opportunity to:

  • attract attention
  • sell your brand
  • send a message
  • entertain
  • inspire, and
  • ultimately sell your products and services! 

Are you making the most of your window real estate?

The leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and the days are getting shorter, but autumn displays can brighten up any window or interior!

Our Displays are Game-Changers

Window displays should work for you year-round – not just for the holidays. If you don’t have the time or resources to design and maintain powerful window displays, we can help. Our talented display artists will get people talking and wow customers before they even walk through your front door. We can create a one-time display or seasonal displays (generally 5x/year). Our displays will surprise and delight, and draw conspicuous attention!

Here are some of the window display services we offer:

  • display planning
  • prop fabrication/procurement
  • graphics/signage
  • lighting
  • display installation (which includes cleaning the display area, washing the windows, and even changing out burned out lightbulbs!)
  • display maintenance
  • take down

  • “I have had many great comments like – ‘WOW the black and white color combination with the green made me stop in my tracks, I have never been in your store before but the window display drew me in’…there have been countless, ‘LOVE THE WINDOW’ [comments]. It cracks me up to see people just standing outside looking at the window, watching their heads go up and down, right to left, they are trying to take it all in. I will be calling you AGAIN, your team is great”

Interior Displays & Visual Merchandising

Bring new life to your products and your selling floor

Attention-getting displays create focal points that lure customers throughout your store.


A successful display exhibits good composition, incorporates props & simple signage, and is well illuminated. It tells a story, inspires, entertains, and/or engages the senses. Ultimately, it sells the product!

How dynamic and productive are your interior displays?

Our talented display artists can plan, create and install displays throughout your selling floor. They’ll bring the props and make the signs. They’ll make sure the displays are illuminated 2-3x brighter than the surroundings to really draw attention. Whether it’s end caps, showcases, nesting tables or larger vignettes, our team can make your store’s focal points look great!

How you visual merchandise your fixtures to showcase your products is directly tied to product appeal and consumer decision making.

The number of products, and the way you put them on fixtures, affects how your customers see and interpret what you’re selling. Our visual merchandising experts use key elements and principles of design to fill your fixtures in a way that showcases products to encourages sales. They make sure your fixtures are stocked right as critical mass is imperative! They’ll review your techniques, teach you new ones, rotate product lines, reset some fixtures, and voila(!), your space will look great again! Whether you need us once, or on a regular basis, we’ll help you create a merchandising system that works for you and your team.
