Store Display Competition
Makedo Cardboard-Building System
 

This past month, 17 of our stores received a new and exciting product called the Makedo™ Cardboard-Building System (shown above). These kits include simple fasteners and tools that are designed to expand the possibilities of cardboard as a creative medium. The kit includes 1/2" long reusable screws for joining up to three layers of 1/8" thick corrugated cardboard, and 3/4" long screws to fasten up to six layers or for thicker cardboard.

Employees were asked to set up an interactive display in their store to encourage customers to try out the new product. Because it was such a fun project, we decided to make a competition out of it. Each store received four Makedo kits and some cardboard to build any project of their choice. They were also allowed to use other materials found around the store. Each store submitted photos that we shared on social media, and our followers were asked to vote for their favorite. Here are the examples of what our creative staff came up with. Enjoy!
