Magnetic Name Plate Holders…The NEW Kids on the Block


New Kids on the Block

What’s in a name?  When it comes to putting names in the spotlight, there are two new kids on the block that make every name a star: Executive Series Magnetic Name Plate Holders from Plastic Products Mfg.  These Clear Acrylic Desktop Name Plate Holders lend a chic look with magnetic attraction…literally.


Looks aren’t everything but let’s start there anyway because Style NPA3 is runway stylish!  This Name Plate Holder was born to play the countertop with edges polished at a 30-degree bevel; boldly strong and confident at 1/8” premium thickness.

Among Style NPA3’s other stunning features?  Each corner is accented by four neodymium magnets that not only add to the aesthetic appeal, they also deliver a key strength component as well.  Those magnets provide the muscle that seals front and back acrylic panels together with your name/title inserts held firmly in place.

The beauty of the countertop presentation with this new design in a Magnetic Name Plate Holder?  It’s the combined overall effect of the slant-back appearance, thick clear acrylic plates, and four magnetic posts that pleasingly draw the eye…just like the biggest stars to the screen.

That same star appeal of Style NPA3 can also jump from the desktop and countertop to your wall of fame.  That’s where the second new kid hits the block: Style NPW3M, Plastic Products Mfg’s Wall Mount version of the Magnetic Name Plate Holder.  This athletic model also loves being looked at…with its polished, beveled front edges and crystal clear acrylic acuity.  Like its counterpart, Style NPW3M Wallmount Magnetic Name Plate Holder is available for custom sizing requests.  The significant difference in the two styles is that Style NPW3M has a mounting bracket on the back for easy wall mounting.

By the way, those other New Kids on the Block?  They’re attempting a comeback on the music scene with the new release of Thankful and accompanying tour.  Back in their zenith in 1991, the Wahlberg brothers Mark and Donnie along with the rest of NKOTB sold an estimated $400 million in merchandise alone, including lunch boxes, comic books, and dolls.  The group even beat out Michael Jackson, Madonna, Prince, and Bill Cosby on Forbes’ list of highest-paid entertainers in 1991.

On a more personal level, look at it this way.  If names and/or titles are deserving enough to be on your inserts, don’t they also deserve to be shown in the best possible light?  These new kids in the Executive Series Magnetic Nameplate Holder line will put them in the limelight like superstars with magnetic appeal!


Nameplate Holders, Menu Holders, and a Smart Marketing Plan Calendar through Summer

Pineapple-compositeReady or not, Summer’s here.  Are your promotional campaigns intact?  Have you begun planning for back-to-school and early fall promotions?  The most effective marketing plan starts with a comprehensive look at the calendar NOW!

The first stop on the calendar is Memorial Day Weekend, the unofficial start of Summer.  It’s the lead-in to summer vacation and outdoor pop-up displays, particularly in food establishments and markets going al fresco.  It could be patio dining with burgers and margaritas.  It could be retail shopping for designer sunglasses or summer dresses.  Either way, the ideal showcase for each is in the Menu Holder…like a Style G three-sided Menu Holder or Style Q for a clear four-sided display.  If your campaigns have not yet accounted for the great outdoors, consider the added revenue potential.  Sturdy, premium thickness acrylic that can stand up to the elements is also a nice benefit.

June’s spending spotlight falls on Father’s Day and retailers will want to focus eyes toward special product roll-outs in a masculine fashion.  Retail trade estimates for 2017 predict an average of $113.80 spent for Father’s Day, and here’s a great new way to create your share of the appeal.  Style A3B Magnetic Black Sign Holders combine a glossy black back panel with a clear acrylic front panel…a real head-turner in 2nd quarter marketing campaigns.

Next on the calendar, the 4th of July and a general shifting of gears into August.  Food service again should capitalize, as will the hospitality industry at the peak of travel season.  Going hand-in-hand, commerce flows heavily in trade show season during July and August: August is the third busiest and July the fourth busiest trade show month of the year respectively.  Otherwise, traditional holiday-related spending is relatively slow then, but for those in hospitality and the restaurant/bar industry, it’s a juicy opportunity to incentivize!  May we suggest Style WFT Magnetic Picture Frames?  This Thick Acrylic Picture Frame is the new gold standard…the elite among literature and signage displays.  It’s exceptionally tough in busy venues like those described above, and really grabs the eye!A3B085110

Labor Day is September 4th and Back-to-School marketing will already be well under way.  University and College campuses will also spring to life as fall term commences for the 2017-2018 school year.  Planning ahead for a lot of new names and faces should include the next generation in nameplate holders: Style PNH3 Executive Series Magnetic Partition Nameplate Holders.  It’s the latest of many new Nameplate Holders from Plastic Products Mfg, and especially unique because name/title inserts are held firmly in place between two acrylic panels with four neodymium magnets.  Check out some other 2017 releases, like Style NPWS Wall Mount Name Plate Holders with Standoffs.  Faculty, students, staffs, valued new employees…don’t leave anyone behind!

As for those Back-to-School promotions, did you know that families with children in grades K-12 plan to spend an average of $673 on apparel, accessories, electronics, shoes, and school supplies, according to the National Retail Federation?  Show them the way in your Point-of-Purchase (POP) marketing with the effective use of Sign Holders and Poster Holders.

And don’t blink!  It’s never too early to think about what’s at the end of the calendar…yes, Halloween and the Holiday Season.  Get your POP Literature Displays in line now, then relax and reward yourself with a drink from a Style BD Table Tent Menu Holder.  Acrylic is your clear seasonal choice the rest of the year!

Magnetic Black Sign Holders…THE Summer Blockbuster in POP Displays!

Illuminated stage podium for award ceremony vector illustrationAs retailers, foodservice operations, the hospitality industry, and entertainment venues gear up for Summer promotions, a revolutionary new look in POP displays is really getting rave reviews!  Introducing Style A3B Magnetic Black Sign Holders, the latest addition to Plastic Products Mfg’s new Magnetic Series.

Summer movie releases are coming soon and Hollywood hopefuls have fingers crossed for the next big blockbuster.  It’s that kind of red carpet spotlight that’s also turning heads toward this incredibly sharp looking Photo/Sign Holder…a dynamic blend of Clear Acrylic with a Black Acrylic back panel.  Style A3B’s Clear Acrylic front panel edges are polished at a 30-degree bevel for added movie star good looks.  Your promotional literature, signs, and photos are placed simply between the two 1/8” thick panels, with four neodymium magnets sealing those panels in place.  The slant-back design creates the perfect angle for grabbing attention and holding it, especially with the stunning Clear/Black Acrylic effect!  The visual appearance speaks for itself.

A strong supporting cast can make a huge difference in both on-screen success and effective marketing.  Eye-catching displays deliver that support in promotional advertising, drawing foot traffic to countertops and tabletops for true revenue-producing results.A3B085110

But the value of Style A3B goes beyond aesthetic appeal.  That 1/8” premium thickness is tough and durable for the long haul, making your investment a sturdy one.  It’s also flexible so your custom sizing requests are easy to accommodate going into the manufacturing process.  Strong Acrylic stands up to hard knocks and maintains that crystal clear viewing acuity with high resistance to scratching, smudges, and cracks.

By the way, curious what’s hitting the theaters over the next few weeks?  Johnny Depp’s back in the next Pirates of the Caribbean installment and a new Baywatch team led by The Rock heats up the beach for the big screen.  Wonder Woman is getting a lot of attention; Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe are featured in Universal’s reboot of The Mummy.  Action?  Check out King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.  Comedy?  Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn team up in Snatched.  There’s plenty of horror flicks like 47 Meters Down, 2017’s take on Jaws.  The third Cars and Despicable Me should also be huge draws with kids and families.

Want to take your Summer big-ticket sales promotions to blockbuster heights?  Give them the perfect backdrop for your audience.  Magnetic Black Sign Holders offer ideal screens with a magnetic combination of clear and black acrylic.  And that enhanced visual appeal can also be a major benefit at non-profit Summer events and fundraisers as well as busy trade shows, outdoor festivals, and special events.  It’s time for stars to shine…on the big screen and at your place!
