Most people may not know what they’re called, but almost all of them recognise them when they see them: the small cubes that can be found on clothes hangers in shops, and which give easy-to-read information on the size of a corresponding garment. When one is investing in all of the fittings that are necessary for a clothes shop, it is important not to ignore these size cubes and the sheer convenience that they provide for customers.
Such cubes are likely to be handled a lot, so they will need to be fairly durable to avoid the need for common and therefore expensive replacement. They will also, naturally, need to look good, but not so good that they are no longer affordable to buy in bulk! Shop owners who need to purchase shop hanger size cubes will also be assisted in their buying decisions by a basic familiarity with the various types of cubes that can be purchased.
These types include black minicubes, ranging from gold on black unisex and womenswear options to silver on black and white on black cubes. A shop owner may choose cubes like this to match existing ones in the store, or merely feel that a certain text colour best suits the image that they want to project for their store. Fonts also tend to vary, while one can also choose between letters and numbers for their cubes, the former including the ever-familiar ‘S’, ‘M’ and ‘L’ denoting ‘Small’, ‘Medium’ and ‘Large’. Some cubes are also naturally larger than others, which gives greater scope for more detailed markings.
Alternatively, to make it easier for customers to pick out clothing of a certain size from a distance, many retailers opt for colour-coded minicubes. One may even wish to buy plain cubes for any of a range of purposes, while promotional minicubes, featuring words like ‘Sale’, are also popular for those occasions when big discounts are on offer and stock needs to be shifted.
