Magnetic Partition Nameplate Holders – Meet the Executive Series!

photo_corporate-executive-board-meeting-evaluationPlastic Products Mfg unveiled multiple Name Plate Holder styles over the last few months, great-looking designs that also feature incredible durability, affordability, and ease-of-use.  The next generation is now here: Executive Series Style PNH3 Magnetic Partition Nameplate Holders!600px_PNH3085025020_Insert

This new launch is exceptionally unique, a modern presentation that truly showcases names and titles in a befitting way for your most valued staff members.  Essentially, name/title inserts are simply placed between two acrylic panels, then snapped together and held firmly in place with four neodymium magnets located in each corner.  The edges are polished with a 30-degree bevel for a clean, professional appearance.  And with 1/8” premium thickness, the Style PNH3 Magnetic Partition Nameplate Holder really stands the test of time, maintaining a crystal clear view with outstanding endurance.

Wondering what neodymium is?  Neodymium magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet commercially available, according to Wikipedia.  It was developed in 1982 by General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals…a “rare-earth” magnet made from an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron.  Its reputation for strength makes it popular in motors for cordless tools, hard disc drives, and magnetic fasteners.600px_PNH3085025020

With your Executive Series Acrylic Name Plate Holder securely magnetized, it then slides easily over any cubicle/partition wall.  It makes a dynamic spotlight for your most valued employees and introduces a nice accent to office décor.  Plus, custom sizing is yours upon request.  Plastic Products Mfg has perfected the manufacturing process with premium material thickness, so flexibility in customization is no problem.

Like all acrylic Name Plate Holders in the PNH Series, Style PNH3 is cost-effective and easy to install, straight out of the box.  Check out introductory pricing on the new Acrylic Executive Series in Magnetic Partition Nameplate Holders.  It’s a solid investment for serious businesspeople!

Material Thickness and Why Size Matters in Acrylic and Styrene Sign Holders

CastFluoedgeIt may not be the first thing you think about with your Sign Holders, Poster Holders, and Point-of-Purchase (POP) Literature Displays…but it IS a significant factor: material thickness.  Mere fractions of an inch can make a real difference in endurance, toughness, visual acuity, and, to some extent, price.  Every dollar counts in retail budgets and investments in signage are no exception.  Which is why those fractions matter!

First, what to look for…

As a rule, .080 is the industry standard thickness.  Plastic Products Mfg offers .098 as a standard thickness.  Slightly slimmer .080 and .092 thicknesses are also available in Sign Holders and Literature Displays…as well as higher gauges of .114, .117, 1/8”, ¼”, and 3/16”.  All these configurations apply in Acrylic and Styrene.

Why is thicker better?

In bustling showrooms and on retail floors, more foot traffic is always better.  It also requires more durability to withstand hard knocks and close contact.  Busy environments like these typically showcase frequently updated POP specials and featured items, too.  And that means more Sign Holder handling by staff when those specials rotate.  Thicker gauge Acrylic and Styrene are more rigid and capable of standing up to repeated force.

Thickness boosts quality.

Speaking of repeated force, thinner, lesser quality Literature Displays and Poster Holders tend to lose their luster over time.  Each thicker gauge Sign Holder from Plastic Products Mfg delivers a tenacious defense against scratches, cracks, breakage, and a faded appearance.  Material thickness makes a huge difference, in the long-run especially.  You wouldn’t send a featherweight into the ring against a heavyweight, right?

The Bonding Process.

How exactly are Acrylic and Styrene Brochure Holders, Sign Holders, and POP Displays formed in thicker materials?  A stronger bond is created in the gluing process, which really isn’t like the glue most people typically think of.  In the manufacturing process, a chemical solvent that’s actually very water-like is used, creating a thicker, stronger seal and a tougher finished product.  It’s a refined process that results in a crystal clear product…only thicker.

Planning to place an order for signage?  Be sure to take thickness into consideration to cement your investment in quality.  A Customer Service Specialist will gladly answer any questions on thickness and material composition.

Use Thick Picture Frames for Maximum Sales This Summer!

maxresdefaultSummertime and the living is easy!  Cue up the Beach Boys and start thinking about busy summer vacation days and weeks ahead.  From ice cream and yogurt shops on the boardwalk to swimming pools, casinos, and cruise lines, vacation season is practically here.  Families, couples, and adventurous travelers will soon be lining up, eager to spend and indulge in everything you have to offer.  Show them what they want to see, taste, and buy in the perfect showcase: Style WFT Thick Picture Frames in ¾” acrylic!

Thick Acrylic Picture Frames are truly among the elite in literature and signage displays…and for good reason.  First of all, the exceptional design is geared to catch the eye in busy environments.  And where there’s heavy foot traffic, tough acrylic thickness stands up to hard knocks.  Plus, Style WFT Thick Picture Frames deliver versatility as either countertop or wall-mount displays with keyhole attachments in the back.WFT Yogurt Shop 2

Another attractive element of the design is also what makes Thick Picture Frames so visually appealing.  Magnets seal the panels and provide an additional aesthetic “wow” factor.  As a menu holder, stand-up picture frames like these are ideal for counters and table-tops where customers congregate.  Mounted on walls, menus and advertising displays can be changed out easily as promotions evolve daily, weekly, or monthly.

If you really want to make a splash in sales through this key selling season, don’t let picture frame size inhibit you.  Plastic Products Mfg can customize Thick Acrylic Picture Frames to accommodate promotional literature, menus, and specialty advertisements beyond more standard sizes of 3-1/2” x 5”, 4” x 6”, and 5” x 7”.  Regardless of the dimensions, it’s the ¾” thickness of the acrylic that gives Style WFT Picture Frames solid muscle while also making a bold statement with crystal clear visual acuity.picture frames, acrylic picture frames, sign holders

By the way, if you ever wondered who first came up with the concept of yogurt, thank the Neolithic peoples of Central Asia circa 6000 B.C.  Herdsmen discovered that the yogurt-making process helped make milk last longer…and they liked how it tasted better too apparently because the practice continued over the centuries.  And because it was considered healthy and preserved well over time, yogurt was also a hit with the armies of Genghis Khan!

You likely won’t contend with hordes of Mongols this summer but business optimism is high for upcoming seasonal demands from smaller armies of fun-loving families and travelers.  Get that foot traffic to stop and see what’s in your spotlight.  Promotional literature, menus, and promotions never looked better than they do in Clear Acrylic Thick Picture Frames.  Catch the wave and get cash registers cranking with a little help from a Plastic Products Mfg Customer Service Specialist!







Brick n Mortar Furniture Store Displays – Still Vital After All These Years

storeWhen it comes to buying furniture, customers still want to see and feel what they’re getting.  No matter how great the impact online shopping and e-commerce have on certain market sectors, investing in furniture still gets done largely as it always has: in a brick-and-mortar environment.  It’s just not the same as buying music, books, or cookware.

Furniture Today’s Clint Engel wrote about this very subject in March 2017.  Citing Doug Stephens’ “Reengineering Retail: The Future of Selling in a Post Digital World,” the hard question is addressed: do physical stores represent overhead or a clear advantage over e-commerce sites?  In the case of furniture, Stephens points out that a massive showroom can be designed to give customers a tangible, tactile, and meaningful experience…showcasing products with a look and feel simply not available via online shopping.  But Stephens also warns that such physical space can be a waste if not set up properly!

That’s where details count.  How are you presenting merchandise to your customers?  Are you using Point-of-Purchase (POP) Displays to your best advantage on the floor?  Give them a crystal clear, aesthetically appealing view with acrylic Sign Holders, Poster Holders, and Literature Displays.

Style CTC POP Display


Style A Sign Holders deliver durable thickness and optimal viewing with a slant that greets the eye.  Combine a classy look with call-to-action functionality in Style CTC POP Display Holders.  The center display creates the draw…additional brochure pockets on either side invite the kind of consumer interaction that leads to sales!

Floor layout and the best ways to utilize physical space should include visual guides for browsing customers.  One aspect of online shopping that consumers appreciate is the fact that they are in control.  You can give shoppers that same sense of control as long as you give them informational aids in their search.  Eye-catching displays greatly enhance those opportunities.  Style CP Sign Display Holders with a Brochure Holder provide that same kind of draw with “grab-n-go” capability.  Customers get the big picture from your sign display which pulls them in.  The 4” wide brochure pocket provides the interaction that turns a possible sale into real revenue.

No matter how cool a website looks, interior store design and layout gives furniture a more prominent display because it showcases each actual piece that buyers can see better in a way that more closely resembles how it will fit in their own personal space.  Sure, you can apply tape measure mentality and a little guesswork to online shopping, but discerning buyers just might prefer to see for themselves.

Help them along.  Enhance the décor of your store and give your sales force a boost with strategically located Literature Displays in appealing acrylic.  Style AP Acrylic Sign Holders with Brochure Holders lend a classy look with a slant in the sign holder portion that makes eye contact perfectly.  Exceptional clarity can make a huge difference!

Clint Engel might have said it best when considering “…the kind of out-of-the-box thinking that leads some stores to offer up more than just product and price to encourage consumers to move from the small screen and into brick-and-mortar theaters to buy.”  In other words, success is at least based partly on the “in-store experience and what it takes to get consumers off that sofa and into the store to buy a new one.”  Your display holders count!  Find out more from your Plastic Products Mfg Customer Service Specialist and see the difference for yourself!
