Free Standing Display Units, Sustainable and ECO Friendly

FSDU stands for “Free-Standing Display Unit,” which is a type of retail display that is self-supported and can be placed anywhere in a store. It is used to showcase products in an attractive and attention-grabbing way to drive sales. An FSDU can come in various shapes and sizes and is often made of cardboard.

FSDU Sustainable and ECO Friendly


At Digital Plus we understand that not everyone can design a fully functioning display unit that can be delivered flat and put up with ease, that is why we have designed a variety of “off the shelf” solutions which include artwork templates for our clients to use to create their own designs.

In response to the increasing demand for eco-friendly materials, Digital Plus has extensively evaluated various materials for creating Free Standing and Counter Display Retail Units, considering factors such as strength, print quality, and recyclability.

We made these hassle free

The flat-pack design, with units that will fit together without the need for tape or glue, is a positive step towards reducing the environmental impact and easing any transportation issue. The robust stability of these units also enable our customers to display their products with confidence.

The benefits of displaying a Free Standing Display Unit or Counter Display Unit in a retail store include:

  • Increased visibility: An FSDU is designed to be eye-catching and noticeable, making it an effective way to draw attention to a product and increase its visibility.
  • Product differentiation: FSDUs can be customized to reflect the brand’s identity, helping to differentiate a product from others on the shelves and make it more memorable to customers.
  • Maximised space usage: FSDUs can be placed anywhere in the store, allowing retailers to make the most of their available space and create a more dynamic shopping experience.
  • Increased sales: By attracting customers’ attention and making a product stand out, an FSDU can drive sales and increase revenue for the retailer.
  • Cost-effective: FSDUs are usually made of low-cost materials and can be easily assembled and disassembled, making them a cost-effective solution for retailers who want an impactful display.

We have designed these to be ECO-friendly, Sustainable, sturdy, and easy to assemble, with the flexibility to change the overall size to allow the use of various products within the client’s retail environment.
