The choice to do it yourself or to work with a dedi- cated outside vendor will help guide your profitability. As Effective As Ever While we live in an age where elec- tronic advertising has revolutionized the way that people are influenced to buy everything from toothpaste to televi- sions, old-fashioned point-of-purchase displays are still a critical tool in the retail world. P.O.P. Printing New opportunities for satisfying commercial clients B Y A N D Y S T O N E H O U S E Andy Stonehouse is a Colorado- based freelance writer. From colorful refrigerator-case lami- nates beckoning you to buy the newest soda at your local convenience store to the giant, colorful window displays announcing this season's new fashions at the mall, it's a sign-making avenue that promises a nearly endless cycle of production and updates.
