Cut Costs and Save Inventory with Simulated Stone and Paver Sample Boards
No one wants to purchase multiple stones or pavers to lug to a customer or end-user location to determine which works best. The solution up until now has been to use smaller pieces of stone or paver on a sample board to reduce weight and product expense while still allowing the customer to get a feel for the product.
The problem is that even in smaller pieces, stones and pavers are still heavy and, when reduced in size, don’t necessarily correctly represent the actual product due to variations in color and texture. In addition, these sample boards can still be quite cumbersome and challenging to set up and take down for showroom or tradeshow installations, with robust fixtures needed to hold the boards in place. Trekking them to and from tradeshow to tradeshow also increases the risk of chipping or breaking the product.
Lastly, inventory lost to product boards and samples quickly adds up, and the cost of freight to ship samples board continues to rise. With no better solution, the costs impact the manufacturer or retailer’s bottom line or are passed on to consumers.
