Custom Plastic Extrusion for Retail

Many retailers use custom plastic extruded products for rail strips, display channels, price tag holders, and more to convey product and pricing information to customers around the world. The products created through custom extrusion are durable, safe, and most importantly, cheap!

Using custom plastic extrusion products for retail shelving offers a lot of benefits most people never think about. Let’s take a look at why every serious retailer should user custom plastic extruded products (and why you may already be using them without knowing).


Plastic extrusion products are known for their durability and resistance to wear and tear. Shelf tags, price tag holders, and shelf edging made from plastic can withstand frequent handling, cleaning, and exposure to various environmental conditions without deteriorating, ensuring long-lasting performance in a retail environment.


Custom plastic extrusion products are often cost-effective compared to alternative materials such as metal or wood. Plastic extrusion allows for efficient manufacturing processes, resulting in lower production costs, which can translate to savings for retailers without compromising on quality or functionality.


Plastic extrusion offers flexibility in design, allowing for the creation of custom shapes, sizes, and colors to meet specific retail requirements. Retailers can customize shelf tags, price tag holders, and shelf edging to match their branding, store layout, and merchandising needs, enhancing the overall visual appeal of the retail space.

Ease of Installation & Use

Plastic extrusion products are lightweight and easy to install, making them convenient for retail staff to set up and maintain. Shelf tags, price tag holders, and shelf edging can be quickly attached to shelves, racks, or display units using adhesive, clips, or other mounting methods, saving time and effort during installation.


Plastic extrusion products offer versatility in application, allowing retailers to use them for various purposes beyond shelf tags, price tag holders, and shelf edging. Plastic extrusion can be used to create signage, display fixtures, labeling systems, and other retail accessories, providing retailers with multifunctional solutions for different merchandising needs.


Plastic extrusion products are easy to clean and maintain, making them ideal for retail environments where cleanliness and hygiene are essential. Shelf tags, price tag holders, and shelf edging made from plastic can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or disinfectant, helping to maintain a sanitary retail environment for customers and staff.
