In the world of retail, physical displays and signs are crucial, and for maximum impact, they need to be changed out frequently. Designing and printing displays are just part of the equation—you also need to get these displays to your stores on time and free of any quality-compromising issues. This is where kit packing comes in.
Kit packing—or simply “kitting” as it’s typically called in the industry—involves packing related items (in this case, visual marketing display pieces) and shipping them to their destination.
In other words, when you place an order, your logistics partner carefully packs the correct display pieces stored in their warehouse into boxes and sends them to the correct place(s).
Sounds simple enough, right? Well, not if you’re ordering hundreds of displays of various kinds and sending them to different locations. In these cases, kitting is a major undertaking and subject to all sorts of potential problems that can cost you time and money, like shipping delays or damage that occurs in transit. For larger brands, it’s critical to have a kitting solution that can handle their needs at scale. In some cases, this could mean kitting thousands of retail displays every week!
Kit packing is important because it can ultimately make or break your success with in-store marketing displays. You need to get the right signs to the right places in tip-top shape.
