Custom Shelf Talkers from U.S. Press

Shelf talkers are used to convey prices and benefits for specific items on retail store shelves and are offered in three standard sizes, with or without a tape back. The tape back allows the shelf talker to stay in place on the store shelf. U.S. Press shelf talkers are printed four color process, one side, on 12 Pt C2S gloss cover stock and are UV coated for maximum gloss to stand out from other displays. They feature a 1.5" flap to allow the product on the shelf to hold them in place. Custom shelf talker sizes are available by request.

Proofing: After you place your order and upload your artwork, our prepress team will begin inspecting your files to ensure your document size, bleed lines, margins, image resolution, and more are correct in order for the best print quality. They will email you a soft proof (PDF) for your approval prior to printing. Most proofs are sent within 1 business day of order placement; more complex art files can sometimes take longer. Soft proofing is an easy way to see what your finished product will look like and make sure the content is correct. However, soft proofing is not intended for exact color matching. Every monitor displays color differently, and on backlit screens, colors may appear lighter than the actual colors contained in your files. If color matching is critical, please give us a call at 800-227-7377 to order a hard proof.

Production Time: Production time begins after proof approval and is the time required to produce your order before it ships. It is calculated in business days, starting at the next occurrence of 9:00 AM Eastern on the 1st business day after the proof is approved. U.S. Press is closed Saturdays, Sundays and all major holidays; thus, these days are not included in the production schedule.
