More About Price Card Hardware
Johnson Bros. has been manufacturing Shelf Label Holders since the 1950`s. Label Holders for Shelves are commonly used in the Display Industry, Store Fixture Industry and the Storage Industry. In the Display Industry you may find Price Tag Holders which are Channels attached in the front of a POP Wire Displays, where labels that are made to spec, show product identification along with prices. In the Store Fixture Industry you will see a Shelf Label Holder channel at the front of shelving used around the store that will hold labels or that may hold clips that hold the labels that show prices. In the Storage Industry, a Label Holder or a Card Holder are channels used on the outside of a rack’s Shelf Edge for holding a designated code or number for the parts going onto that particular shelf. In each case, the channels are used to hold labeling. Johnson Bros. holders are produced in a safe, economical way, using either a standard channel or a custom channel to meet the customer’s need.

Our standard Ticket Holders are mainly used in the Display Industry but can be used most economically; anywhere you may need an economical Label Strip Holding Channel, and for any industry. The standard parts shown in the prints below, can be made from any metal. However, our standard Display Strips are made from stock steel material in .024" 24ga., .030" 22Ga. and .036" 20Ga. thicknesses. A standard Ticket Holder shown in the long horizontal prints below as #s 829 thru 836 below, will still be produced to order at your finished length dimensions. The raw material used comes from stock and the tooling producing these parts remains on our Roll Forming machine year round for a very quick turnaround at any length you may need. As you can see in the prints, each standard Card Strip shown has an inside face of 1.250". End Corners may be made with several radii and still have a standard Tag Strip price and availability. The end corner radii are to provide safety to the public that may brush up against the channels. When in a different application That does not leave the ends exposed, the radii are not usually included as you can see on print #834. The Standard Ticket Holder channels are made from one metal type-Steel, as stated earlier. This steel is meant to be painted or powder coated but can be plated if the matte finish of this steel will be to a customer’s approval after plating. Zinc plating is common in these cases. Our standard 1 1/4"I.D. Shelf Edge Moldings shown above are typically coated or finished after the entire display has been assembled, using them in the matte finish form. You may notice grooves down the length of some of the channels. Those grooves are made to weld to the wire in a wire display. Whether you want those grooves or not, the parts will still be standard. Finished measured Lengths are cut inline on standard and custom parts from 2.5" long through 25 feet long but parts are most commonly requested between 9" and 50" lengths. Samples and prototypes of our standard 1 1/4" I.D. Price Holder can be sent from stock or made and sent very quickly, as well. Finally, High Annual Volumes of our standard channels can bring better than standard pricing.
Custom Tag Holders are like the above, but will be made from any other thickness, any different face dimension, any other groove design or end radii, any other type of metal, or any other steel finish than our standard 1 1/4" I.D. parts discussed above. A custom Tag Holder or Ticket Holder with differences to our standard 1 1/4 parts, may be produced with any of the differences shown below, as optional:

A Price Tag Molding`s profile can be completely different than the prints shown above but still be used for the same purposes, along with potential other functions at the same time. CAD prints of some of those special channels, may be seen below.
If your annual volume for custom parts is high enough, pricing may be as good or better than the pricing for our standard sized parts.
Whether Standard or Custom, no matter which industry your parts may be used in, Johnson Bros. will strive to give the highest quality, with the most economical prices, in the quickest time frame possible.
