Display bed cards effectively
Bed cards are an essential part of most garden centres' plant labelling strategy
The 8in x 6in bedcard or bed label has been around for years.
Pre-printed bed cards are available from plant labelling
specialists and are sometimes furnished to the retailer by the nursery
supplying the plants.
This "inch" size is close metric paper size A5. Many retailers
also produce bedcards of their own, two to an A4 page i.e. A5 size.
These paper prints are then sealed in a laminating pouch, once more making the finished size slightly bigger.
When we developed our Slim Frames an important consideration was that the frame should accommodate all these variants.
Having achieved this we then produced a clear plastic U-channel
called Grip Strip (pictured right) which could be screwed onto plant
benches to grip Slim frames which are simply pushed into place.
