Are you ready for a little Christmas cheer… in July? We know it may seem a bit soon to start talking about the “C” word, but if you work in retail, it’s never too early to start thinking about glitter vinyl & festive prints.
It’s reported that the average UK consumer plans to start Christmas shopping in November, with 16% finished buying their gifts by the beginning of December. So, for your brand to stand out from the crowd at one of the busiest times of the retail calendar year, then your festive displays need to be front and centre of their attention by October (at the very latest).
How early is early?
Timing is key, too early and shelves may stay full and untouched. Too late, and you may miss out on sales while the competition scoops up the revenue.
Early planning allows you to stay ahead of the game and at 3WD we recommend starting your preparations in July. This gives you ample time to brainstorm ideas, collaborate with creative design experts, print, fabricate and install your festive displays in good time to impress your customers once the festive season rolls around.
One of our standout projects was a delightful clock display we created for the iconic Selfridges. In true Christmas spirit, they unveiled their holiday windows a whopping 69 days before Santa’s arrival, proudly claiming the title of the first department store in the world to do so. We were thrilled to contribute to their ‘future fantasy-themed’ display, adding a touch of fairy-tale enchantment to the Oxford Street retail landmark.
