Easy Staff Picks Displays

Sometimes, when you have a lot on your plate, creating new and exciting displays falls by the wayside. The good news is, we're here to help!

Everybody loves a good Staff Picks display - I mean, who doesn't like like tried-and-true book recommendations? - but how do you make your display really stand out?  We've got you covered.


Print out one of these signs and stand it on top of your display. Done and done.


Tuck a bookmark inside each book explaining why you enjoyed it. Books can go up on display this way, or, if you're not in the mood for a big display, you can even have them on the shelf with a special bookmark tucked inside.


This one stands out, even though it's tucked away on the bottom shelf.

For your convenience, you can choose between "Staff Selections" or "Staff Picks," or use a combination of both.


A shelf-sitter is a tag that you slide under your book, with the front folded down so that it hangs over the shelf. These are great for books in your display, and also work well for highlighting specific titles that may otherwise be overlooked on your shelves. How you use them is up to you.

I designed these shelf-sitters so that you can cut around the shape, and fold the rest down. This makes the star or sunburst designs really stand out against your books! 

To use these designs, simply right-click on the image and save. They are all sized to easily be printed on 8.5 x 11" paper (though I recommend cardstock). Please enjoy and feel free to share! All designs were made in Canva by Kat Ealy.
