Cool Cubicles and their Adjustable Cubicle Name Plate Holders


Google Office in Zurich

Have you seen the unique approach some companies have taken with their cubicle layouts? Some are rather…imaginative, like those at Google Zurich.


More privacy? How about a unique design with four walls, vaulted ceiling, bookshelves, and look-out portals?

Whimsical design aside, chances are that cubicles in most operations tend to be more traditional. What they all have in common is the need for proper identification in Name Plate Holders and the need to adjust them when cubicles are modified.

Introducing Adjustable Cubicle Name Plate Holders. Universal Single-Sided Name Plate Holders deliver a clearly defined spotlight on individual name/title inserts. Adjustable Double-Sided Cubicle Name Plate Holders are comprised of premium thickness acrylic with crystal clear visual acuity…on both sides of the display.

What sets these Name Plate Holders apart is the Magic Tape that makes each style adjustable over and over with no residue. This clear, removable Magic Tape does not yellow and gives users added flexibility from 2” to 3” wide. Polished acrylic catches the eye and conveys a professional looking image – no matter how conventional or outlandish the cubicle.

Regardless of style, maneuverability and the capability to remove and adjust the size of the holder makes both single-sided and double-sided Cubicle Name Plate Holders a wise investment.

Speaking of office floor layouts that go beyond the conventional, have you seen the Madrid office of Selgas Cano Architecture?

Nestled in a forest setting, this aerodynamic tube incorporates a long, curved window/wall that reaches into the ceiling. Cubicles there are more like stations without walls…and all part of the Spanish woods, brought indoors with plenty of natural light.

Redesigning your own work environment? Don’t forget the Name Plate Holders, adjustable for cubicles time and again!


Magnetic Sign Holders, Picture Frames…and their Magnetic Attraction to the Eye!

Untitled designMagnetism has fascinated mankind for centuries, even before research into magnetic fields began in the year 1269. That’s when French scholar Petrus Peregrinus de Maricourt used iron needles to cross at two points, making the first recorded correlation to the Earth’s north and south poles.

Fast forward to 1982 when General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals developed neodymium magnets, considered the strongest available for commercial applications and use in everything from cordless tools and hard drives to fasteners…which in turn makes them ideal in merchandising with Magnetic Sign Holders and Picture Frames.

Communication is key in retail sales and branding…that’s no secret. How that form of merchandising is approached can determine success or failure. An effective, modern look using Magnetic Sign Holders and Picture Frames offers many benefits. These acrylic POP displays deliver tremendous eye appeal as promotional showcases. They complement retail décor. And they are easy to use.

Here are two prime examples. Style A3 and A3B Slant Back Photo/Sign Holders are comprised of two premium thickness acrylic panels that seal promotional literature securely between them. Four neodymium magnets hold those panels (and promotions) in place. The back panel in A3B is black for an even more distinctive look. Both have a beveled, polished look.

Upgrading to Designer Series C3 Clear Acrylic Picture Frames also has its benefits. The upright double-sided exposure in a free-standing picture frame atop a ½” thick clear acrylic base grabs attention, accentuated by polished edges and four silver, flat neodymium magnets.

WFT Thick Magnetic Picture Frames also use those 5/16” flat silver magnets to spotlight promotional material between two ½” thick clear acrylic panels. No doubt this free-standing Sign Holder can stop busy foot traffic for a look at its contents and uniquely special offers.

Other good reasons to consider Magnetic Sign Holders? They are easy to reposition strategically throughout the store. No special tools for mounting are needed that could potentially damage walls or fixtures. Broad appeal makes them ideal for practically any retail décor. Plus, they’re very cost-effective!  Talk about magnetic appeal!


Cubicles, Name Plate Holders, and a more Collaborative Office Atmosphere

Untitled designDo you believe that an open floor plan in the office encourages a more collaborative team effort? Tech companies in particular are known for open-plan concepts, largely based on the premise that brilliant young minds will interact and spark even greater ideas.

But a recent Harvard study indicates quite the opposite! According to the research, interaction in wide open spaces actually makes many diligent workers self-conscious and unwilling to disrupt the work flow of others.

That research revolved around two Fortune 500 companies making the switch to open-plan offices. Interactions of 150 employees were measured before and after using a “sociometric badge,” a device that recorded wearer movements, locations, and conversations with colleagues via infrared and sound sensors.

The results? Over 15 days prior to the office redesign, participants averaged about 5.8 hours of face-to-face interaction a day. After switching to an open layout, the same participants’ interaction dropped to only 1.7 hours.

One could argue that maybe TOO MUCH time is spent interacting…i.e., messing around and gossiping. But those numbers are still significant, even if every second is not spent brainstorming. At least the opportunity is there.

If you’re considering ways to make your office more conducive to collaborative thought and creative ideas, one approach to be drawn from this Harvard study indicates a need for the semi-privacy cubicles deliver. An essential requirement for every cubicle is the Name Plate Holder that distinguishes each one.

Acrylic Picture Frame Designs for September’s Save Your Photos Month!

2abd3efbd7b942e8_Product-squaresheldsHeard the news?  September is National Save Your Photos Month. Don’t scoff: it’s a real public service outreach campaign; an initiative designed to teach people how to “preserve life’s irreplaceable photos, videos, and documents, in case of unforeseen accident or disaster.” September is designated to raise awareness about the benefits of safeguarding photos for future generations.

Personal photo organizers are a traditional family favorite, especially this time of year. The transition from summer vacation to a new school year tends to strike a sentimental chord, and while there are plenty of digital images, social media posts, and selfies to go around, capturing actual photographs of these memories for physical viewing is important for posterity!

Organizing and cataloguing photos might conjure images of large, hardbound photo albums. Indeed, the endeavor itself goes hand-in-hand with a similar and highly popular hobby often geared toward preserving family histories: Scrapbooking.

Another outstanding approach to photo preservation? Sturdy, reliable Acrylic. Crystal Clear Acrylic Slant Back Picture Frames have the kind of long-lasting characteristics that keep pictures in pristine shape. They also deliver aesthetic appeal that makes photos proudly displayed in prominent places.

Standard photo sizes find a perfect fit with Style A2040060ST and A2050070ST Acrylic Photo Frames, 4” wide x 6” high and 5” x 7” respectively. The exceptional clarity is accentuated by four Stainless Steel Posts, one in each corner with the lower two serving as a base.

Acrylic Sign Holders, POP Displays, and Retail Upgrades for Shifting Demographics

Beware-Loyalty-Marketers-Don-t-Forget-the-Baby-BoAccording to a recent Bloomberg report, the global Generation Z population (born since 2001) will nudge ahead of Millennials (1980-2000, the range used in this study) for the first time in 2019. As the future progresses, this is increasingly good news for higher tech “gig” industries and gadget makers trending upward with online sales and services like “final mile” delivery.

But what about the Baby Boomers? Forbes Contributor Tom McGee reported in mid-August that this demographic segment is very much alive and well in the US, as 10,000 Baby Boomers turn 65 every day. Citing a 2016 Visa projection, “consumers over age 60 will continue to dominate U.S. consumer spending in the coming decade.”

McGee also points out that “the generation that grew up on Main Street” is retiring later and spending more. Downsizing empty nesters, for example, are helping drive a resurgent housing market. That, in turn, helps drive sales of everything from tables and chairs to pots and pans.

This where retailers need to pay particular attention to store layout and making featured products attractive, desirable, and accessible. Making the shopping experience pleasurable and a breeze to navigate can prove to be a winning formula when appealing to this growing consumer market.Rigid Vinyl C with Sale Insert

Part of McGee’s thesis speaks directly to floor layout in an area we know well: updated signage. More specifically, how to make that signage resonate with buying eyes.

One of the keys to locking shopper focus on product specials depends on eye-appealing point-of-purchase (POP) displays. And sometimes the most effective display employs the KISS method – Keep It Simple Stupid. Literature should be easy-to-read and prominently showcased in strategic foot traffic patterns.

If you’re in retail and looking to capture sales in the Baby Boomer demographic, take a look at the latest in Clear Sign Holders and eye-catching Acrylic POP Displays, including multi-sided options. Such selling opportunities are not to be missed!


CAALA Vegas 2018 – The Nation’s Largest Trial Lawyer Convention

catch-the-wave-36l6ns5qu0m21jbv3jm7swUnsafe products, bad medicine, shady business practices, negligent corporate conduct without scruples…it’s a sad-but-true fact of life that not every product and purveyor is 100% reliable. When consumers are wronged by practitioners who engage in unethical practices or with a purchase that’s not what was promised, it’s nice to know that there’s a vital segment of the legal community to help fight back.

Consumer Attorneys focus solely on the protection of ordinary consumers from those who try to take advantage or simply get away with nefarious products and/or services. In response, Southern California is home to the nation’s largest local association of plaintiffs’ attorneys, the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles (CAALA). It’s a powerful group of advocates united in one purpose: to protect victim’s rights with equal access to justice.

On Labor Day weekend, the CAALA 36th Annual Las Vegas Convention takes place. Over 2,000 visitors are expected to attend, including attorneys, law firm staff, trial lawyers, and legal consultants. Besides vendor exhibits and product demonstrations, the goal is to give attendees the latest educational advantages, networking sessions, and brainstorming opportunities…covering crucial areas from insurance and medical services to publishing and production.

Once finished, it’s back to the firm and business as usual, only with a sharper edge in a legal area that offers a valuable benefit to our society-at-large.

Also valuable inside each firm’s walls? New Acrylic Sign Holders and dynamic new Name Plate Holders in modern, cutting edge designs.NPBR with Silver Insert

Cubicle Name Plate Holders are also in especially high demand right now. Colored borders have been incorporated to deliver a clear view and sharper focus on 8-1/2” x 2-1/2” inserts. Countertop and desktop Name Plates in slant-back clear, glass green, and Executive Series designs are also gaining popularity for blending function, style, and a nice complement to the décor.

By the way, did you hear about the case of the runaway hit-and-run cow in Sacramento County? Indeed, an escaped cow charged a 70-year old neighbor woman “at full speed from approximately 300 feet away.” The plaintiff did recover however, and in Paynter v Romano this past January, a confidential settlement was reached as the result of a “high/low verdict.”
