Countertop Displays for The Golden Rule Coloring Book

I spent quite a bit of time designing a cardboard countertop display for The Golden Rule Interfaith Coloring Book, to put into stores. I had a big old box, and was measuring and cutting away, customizing it to hold the coloring books, and enough room on top to display an opened book.

Then I thought that somebody must make these displays! So I typed in cardboard counter top displays in my browser and up popped and after a few minutes found EXACTLY what I was looking for.

They came flat, and easy to assemble. They were plain and I just printed up the information and glued it on. Ta Da! They also sent me shipping boxes to send them assembled to stores.

Today I'm getting three displays ready and full to send to my first three stores!

I used to work for a couple of different companies that make these
displays. I generally got the finished artwork into camera-ready position for the displays, and also illustrated and wrote the directions so the stores would know how to set up the displays. Some were a bit complicated. I give you credit for 1. figuring out a good display (people get paid for that) 2. making it yourself (again, people get paid for that) and 3. realizing that there are companies that do that!
