What Do Your Clothes Hangers Say About You?

Posted by on 7/20/2018

If you’re in the retail industry, you’ve probably had nightmares about buckets and buckets of clothes hangers, all tangled together. With hundreds of different kinds on the market, how can you decide? The professionals here at Joslin Displays can help you figure out what style best fits your business.


The first decision you should make is material. The most inexpensive hangers are made of plastic. These are perfect if you have to hang a lot of product, or you make a lot of sales, and you give the hangers to the customer. You don’t have to worry about them being a considerable expense, and you can go through them quickly without much trouble. Wooden hangers are a little bit more durable and are perfect for more high-quality items. Further, velvet hangers are perfect for things that are delicate, as they won’t get crease lines.


The material of clothes hangers you choose is also reflected in the material you are selling. Merchandise made from lightweight material can easily be hung on a plastic hanger because it won’t be too heavy. Dense winter coats or other heavier objects may snap a plastic hanger, and the item will then be on the floor.


The design of the hanger is also important and dependent on what you are selling. Pants are best displayed on hangers with clips because they can easily slide off traditional shapes. Shirts are best hung on conventional hangers, but be careful. If there is a zipper or lower neckline, it could slip off if not properly secured. Slide top hangers are the perfect choice for blouses or clothing made of “slippery” material.


In the retail business, presentation is paramount. You want your customers to be able to see all your products without your displays looking cluttered. The professionals here at Joslin Displays are dedicated to providing you with the best choice of clothes hangers.
