Ever look at a display in a shop and see something that catches your eye but doesn't show a price? Do you walk away? A lot of people do. Retailing is all about telling a story and food retailing is no different. We don't have time to ask a shop attendant the price of every article so correctly labelling food displays is an important aspect of food retailing.
The good news is no matter what type of fresh food outlet you have, within our range you'll find the correct type of ticketing for your store. Your first decision is what type of ticket? We carry 2 styles of food tickets:
Spiked Food Tickets - have a spike incorporated into the ticket which pushes directly into the product.
Standard Food Tickets – These tickets have connectors to allow the ticket to be attached to trays or bowls for example.
On the bottom of a standard ticket is a little bulb that is made to accept a Hinge Block. Once you have a Hinge Block on a ticket, you can then use one of our many accessories to, attach the ticket to a bowl or tray (using a Tray Clip), or to free stand the ticket (using a Round or Square Base). You may also want to raise the height of your ticket, to do so, simply push an Extension Rod onto a Hinge Block and push the other end on one of the previously mentioned accessories. Our tickets have been used in the food industry for more than 25 years so every application for displaying a ticket will be covered.
A most popular method was to write on a ticket using a spirit marker and some people may still do this but they are in a very small minority. Today the easiest, quickest and most attractive way to label food tickets is by using an electronic labeller such as the Brother P-Touch. This produces a self adhesive laminated tape that is waterproof and extremely durable. You can use the P-Touch to produce either the product name, description or price ...or all three if you choose. On our Standard Tickets, another option is to use Push-In Numbers. Most of our Standard Tickets have 4 pairs of holes in them to accept the Push-In Numbers which are available in 3 colour choices.
All of our food tickets (spiked and standard) are made from polycarbonate plastic which is an extremely durable type of plastic. It is scratch and impact resistant and is virtually unbreakable. Polycarbonate is quite often used in bulletproof windows in banks and drive throughs. In addition, it is extremely temperature resistant and will not even start degrading till above 150 degrees Celcius which is much higher than a normal bain marie temperature for example so for food ticketing applications it is ideal and can be used anywhere.
Our food tickets are stain resistant so blood, vegetable juices etc will just wipe off. Usually, washing a ticket in warm soapy water should suffice. If tickets do get covered in fat or oil, use of something like isopropyl alcohol or even window cleaner is recommended. However to keep your tickets in pristine condition, never use scourers or steel wool and also avoid strong solvents such as acetone as this will react with the plastic removing the high gloss surface.

We had nothing but a positive experience with Blazon Displays. Their team are efficient and wonderful to deal with and their prices are extremely competitive in the marketplace. Looking forward to seeing the new site!
After recently refurbishing our store we needed a fair bit of display equipment to improve our look in all our departments. Blazon Display’s range covered all our requirements and some of their new products gave us further inspiration in our display designs. The service we receive from the whole team there is outstanding and they understand what we need for our store to have that edge.
