Why do I need a Leaflet Dispenser?

Nothing looks worse than a stack of leaflets sprawled on a reception desk or waiting room table, it doesn’t look professional or indeed inviting for your customers and clients.

How do I look after my leaflet holders?

Most of our leaflet and brochure dispensers are manufactured in either high impact acrylic Perspex or styrene, so they are made to last in even the busiest of settings. To clean your leaflet holders, just use a same cloth and a bit of warm soapy water. Avoid using any strong cleaning chemicals or alcohol as this can cause the acrylic to crack. A micro fibre or cotton cloth is best to use, as this stops your holder from being scratched.

Helpful Hints and Top Tips:

  • Keep your holders well stocked at all times. There is nothing worse than a leaflet display with very few leaflets in it.
  • Try “hot spotting” your leaflet holders around to measure the take up and work out the best place for them to receive a permanent home.
  • Add your corporate branding to the leaflet holders, this helps build your brand but can also stop rival companies from using your dispensers!
  • Try and stick to standard size leaflets, bespoke leaflet sizes can make them stand out but it can also be costly to have bespoke holder manufactured for them
  • Keep them up to date, having last year’s price list still floating about isn’t helpful for you or your customer.
