Book & Leaflet Vending
Book and leaflet vending machines have a wide range of applications and can add value to many operating environments, including schools, colleges, universities, museums, libraries, tourist advice sites, airports, bus and railway stations, festivals and exhibitions etc.
Most floor standing machines can be adapted to vend paper and card items up to approximately A4 size. There may be technical problems vending books and leaflets that are larger than this; plus, the larger the product, the less capacity there is within the machine to sell other items. Ideally, books and leaflets to be vended should not be 'floppy' as this can affect the delivery process but, in our experience, any such problems can usually be overcome with a little planning and a degree of creative thought!
Machines offer considerable flexibility for selling books and leaflets, and it is possible to include a range of titles and formats within the same machine. In addition to selling books and leaflets, the same vending machine could also be set up to deliver associated products eg pens, pencils and other writing materials and stationery. Book and leaflet vending machines offer benefits in both staffed environments, by reducing distractions or deviation from normal duties, or in unstaffed locations, eg to provide a service and maintain sales outside normal opening hours.
The ability to brand machines with a company design or theme provides added benefit from a marketing and promotion perspective, and a well designed book and leaflet vending machine can contribute significantly to overall aesthetics and presentation within a sales environment.
