Counter Cards Custom Printed
Double-Wing Easel-Back Counter Cards
Counter cards are also known as easel-backs or tabletop easel signs. And they're definitely having a moment now! Although Dilco has printed them for decades, they've become very popular in the last few years. So much so, we've decided to add 3 pages to our website devoted entirely to custom printed counter cards.
Counter cards are as incredible as they are simple and cost-effective for marketing your product. They're compact signage that can be placed on any counter or table near your product or as a point-of-purchase display. We make them in various sizes and substrates, depending on where they'll be used; and include durable double-wing easels on the back to make them stand on their own.

WHY COUNTER CARDS ARE SO EFFECTIVE AT BOOSTING SALES
Now that you get the idea of where to use counter cards, you can probably think of about 100 more uses that would make your marketing campaign or promotion stand out. The reason they work so well is that they're so simple. Not only will Dilco print your counter card, we'll attach the double-wing easel to the back. All you need to do is pop them open and stand them up on a tabletop or counter. There's nothing to attach or affix; counter cards are stand-alone signage. They're effective because they are either the last thing a shopper sees at your display or the at the register. In other words, they're right there, front and center, at the point of purchase.
EXCEPTIONAL FULL-COLOR COUNTER CARD PRINTING
Since easel-back counter cards are, well, in your face, the printing has to be pigment-rich, vibrant, and tack-sharp. It has to be photo-realistic quality whether you're depicting a woman's face, makeup color, food or car parts. Remember, your customer is thisclose to the sign. That's why Dilco invests in the newest printing technology and equipment. Our product is on the line because yours is. We never forget that.
FLIMSY = FAILURE
Ever seen a counter card fall over? Could be a gust of wind when a C-store door is opened. Maybe when a shopper bumps it reaching for a makeup sample. Seen one that's dog-eared because it fell over before? That means their printer cheaped out with a substrate that was too weak/light to handle the job; or used a single easel where they needed a double. There's really no excuse for this. At Dilco we don't print counter cards on any stock lighter than 24 or 48 point, or less than 3mm Sintra® or Komatex® expanded PVC. And we only use double-wing easel backs. This ensures the proper rigidity and weight to keep your counter card upright and stable in high-traffic areas.
EASEL-BACK COUNTER CARD SIZING
Not sure what size you need or which substrate will handle the job? Don't worry; we got this. You can either use one of our handy templates on the pricing page, or upload your artwork directly to us. Tell us what you want, how many, and where they'll be used, and we'll let you know which easel-back counter card will work best.
We offer stock sizes in 5x7, 8.5x11, and 11x14. They can either be used portrait (vertical) or landscape (horizontal). We can even custom die cut special sizes or contours to make your counter card really unique.
