Trident and Dentyne take a “new twist” on Retail P.O.S.

Take this one for a spin

Traditional dump bins are common among skus that need to be piled into one location. They are usually easy to assemble and easy to fill. But the word “easy” was nowhere to be found on the briefing for this one.

Trident and Dentyne are two complimenting brands that like to turn their Retail Point of Sale positioning inside out from time to time (just to keep consumers engaged and on their toes). The result is a retail dump bin that is a little different than what consumers are accustomed to seeing.


Retail POS Twist Bin – Trident / Dentyne

Twist and shout

This innovative Retail P.O.S. Twist Bin is an eye-catching solution that is shoppable from all angles. It also carries strong branding areas in a relatively modest retail footprint. An abstract approach with strong retail impact. *Not to mention: Pretty cool to look at.


Always have. Always will.

At a max sheet size of 83” x 60”. The “Giant” truly lives up to it’s name. But this big fella has more than size going for it. When it comes to high-speed die cutting presses – there is no equal.

Fee Fei Foe Fum

Young Shin Giant


The bigger they come the better they cut

We had to get a look at one for ourselves. And we found one knocking out projects at Proprint. You gotta see this thing go, it’s really impressive.
The highly skilled Proprint Pressmen and Presswomen proudly pointed out some of the secret weapons on this beautiful beast. And you can tell by the way that spoke about it and handled it that there was some genuine respect between man and machine.

Richard Krakower of Proprint has really done his homework when selecting equipment to put to work for his clients. With 20 years of Point of Sale Production behind him, Richard has earned an industry reputation for investing in people and technology that you can depend on.

And there’s no doubt he had to pull out a measuring tape just to see if this Clydesdale would even fit on the floor.
– It did. And now, it’s pulling it’s weight for some of North America’s top retail brands.
“The Giant” (as it is lovingly referred to on the production floor) has been challenged with some large quantities and creative tasks. Hitting targets and exceeding client expectations.
