Name Plate Holders and CAALA 2019, the Largest Trial Lawyer Convention

Untitled designUnsafe 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 37th 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 Poster Holders, cutting edge designs.

Office 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. Desktop and Counter-top Name Plate Holders 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.

Amazing Office Name Plate Holders and their many Wonderful Benefits

PNH SSS Desk Setup Green BIt might not be the first item on your list of workplace accessories or interior office décor items. Yet, the traditional Name Plate Holder delivers a uniquely vital function that nothing else can. In fact, Office Nameplates are also taking on a new look to keep pace with today’s changing work environment…and the benefits are many!

Why is the Office Nameplate Holder so important? For one thing, it serves as the standout spotlight for personnel identification. Each Name Plate is the one personal identifier that gives employees a sense of identity. It might seem like a small token, but the Name Plate also gives the individual a sense of belonging within a larger family.

In a busy office, the Name Plate Holder as a People Spotter also helps with office navigation, especially in sectors frequented by unfamiliar foot traffic. To the uninitiated, a maze of cubicles can be daunting. Using dynamic Cubicle Name Plate Holders adds clear, distinctive visibility and diminishes bewildered confusion.8e95b9a5dc132ce158e819b26d4b3f34

Beyond the individual workstation, Office Name Plate Holders add aesthetic appeal and organization to a company’s overall appearance. Plain and simple, neatness makes an impression on visitors. Name Plate Holder People Spotters not only define individual workstations, they create a more uniformly designed office in general.

One more benefit of Name Plate Holders? Longevity. Tough, premium thickness acrylic is a fine investment because it virtually lasts forever, standing up to re-use and relocation. This is a key factor when personnel changes, transfers, and gets promoted.

As for those eye-catching new looks? Colored Border Cubicle Name Plate Holders are a prime example. Bold color options are taking that traditional look to brighter new levels in silver, black, bronze, and white.  Select orders also come with free card stock for do-it-yourself inserts to match easy installation of the Name Plate Holder itself – no tools required!

In addition to cubicle styles, Desktop and Wall-Mount Name Plate Holders are also hitting high marks in today’s modern office. Click a few pix and see for yourself!


Cubicle Name Plate Holders for a Better, More Cooperative Office Environment

54ff0f9fd01ff-8ghk-bad-work-habits-talking-in-cubicle-s2Ever work next to a cubicle nightmare? You know, someone who’s oblivious to the volume of his or her own voice? What about that special co-worker who feels compelled to start a random, meaningless conversation with you, disregarding even the possibility that you’re just trying to do your job? Partition walls may generally be four to six feet high, but it’s amazing how some either treat cubicle walls as invisible or think of themselves as invisible within them.

Debby Mayne recently discussed “Cubicle Etiquette” for The Spruce, a publication geared, in part, for interior design. Noise awareness was high on the list of violations. Earbuds have minimized overzealous music invasions, but not the humming or urge to sing along. And workers who adopt a “phone voice” seem to forget that everyone within ear shot can hear them. Mindfulness of others and better self-awareness make simple remedies.

Smells matter, too. Exorbitant amounts of perfume or microwaved fish brought back to the cube for a working lunch? No good…try to avoid such extremes. Cubicles don’t seal out smells-next-door. Personal grooming? Remember that cubicles still have openings visible to any passersby.IMG_0057

Which leads to maybe the most important aspect of cubicle etiquette: privacy. Technically, a person’s cubicle is their office, their private work domain, and should be treated accordingly even if it has no door. Mayne even suggested fashioning a “busy” sign as a reminder. Making cubicle signage more visible? That’s what the PNHT2 Tiered Cubicle Name Plate Holder accomplishes.

Easy to install securely atop partition walls, this clear acrylic Name Plate Holder elevates displays with a view from both sides. It’s not only the perfect spotlight for Name/Title inserts framed in stunning silver, the Tiered Cubicle Name Plate Holder can also guide passing foot traffic with Directional Signage and Combination Suite Identification. You can use your imagination if you want to express your need for privacy.

Being double-sided by design, this Name Plate Holder can also foster a sense of camaraderie among cubicle neighbors, giving each individual recognition in one shared “People Spotter.” Nothing showcases that symbiotic working relationship more than a Tiered Cubicle Name Plate Holder, especially with Silver Borders!


Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders and the COOL Summer Cubicle

Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders and the COOL Summer CubicleStuck inside working on a beautiful summer day? If you find the ear-worm refrain of “Summertime Blues” in your head, it’s perfectly understandable. It’s also time to give the interior a little summer lift, especially in cubicle layouts.

Beyond the obvious 9 to 5 outdoor escapes for lunch and breaks, what else can you do? Comfortable enough to open a window for fresh air? That is, if you’re not windowless or hermetically sealed-in. The sure-fire key to happier summer workdays involves brightening up your indoors.

There are subtle ways to lighten your mood…flowers, different lighting, and even a new background on the computer screen can get the ball rolling. If you listen to music during the day, switch up the playlist – with or without Summertime Blues.

A change in décor should also include cubicles. Traditional partition walls and modern uptakes on cubicle design both look better with the latest in Name Plate Holders…premium thickness acrylic in dynamic new designs with colored border options to match.

In addition to eye-catching “People Spotter” Cubicle Name Plate Holders, new multi-tier options are elevating exposure for name/title inserts just in time for summer. Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders with Silver or Black Borders (Style PNHL SSS and PNHL SSB, respectively) also add a highly functional element with 2, 3, 4, and 5 slot variations.

That puts many flexible display options in your control. Bold color borders deliver the ideal frame for custom name and title inserts, with plenty of room for more name plates. Department identification and directional signage also slide into place, all in one convenient Name Plate Holder with multiple slots.

While looking around the workplace and imagining a more summer-y look, picture the added possibilities available in clear Acrylic Multi-Tier Name Plate Holders with Colored Borders. Whether the insert announces a VP or Marketing head, specific department, or simply Enter and Exit, chances are, the aesthetic appeal of Combination Suite Identification Name Plate Holders can play a part in a summer interior upgrade!



Name Plate Holders and Workstation People Spotters – Welcome to NeoCon 2019!

AIS-ShowroomEvery June since 1969, “The Mart” in Chicago has been home to NeoCon, a premier destination for commercial design innovators. NeoCon’s 50th anniversary trade show June 10th – 12th is expecting big numbers in design professionals (50,000) and 500 leading manufacturers.

Companies represented include some emerging new hotshots in areas ranging from fabrics and flooring to furniture, interior building products, finishes, and technology. Also exhibiting is Herman Miller, the company that started the cubicle office layout revolution with the “Action Office” in 1968.

New open-floor office trends have inspired professionals to take a closer look at next-generation cubicles, like those being unveiled by Herman Miller. The modern workstation looks much different than those original partition panels. Now more streamlined, airy, and unconfined, today’s cubicle is a comfortable, ergonomic workstation that uses space and storage more efficiently for collaborative AND digital work environments.


Going hand-in-hand with contemporary office workstations and any cubicle style are the latest “People Spotter” Name Plate Holders. The blend of crystal-clear acrylic with a splash of color options has really been grabbing attention lately. These Colored Border Cubicle Name Plate Holders are in high demand as a perfect match for new interior décor and the modern professional aesthetic.

A stand-out look for standard 8-1/2” x 2-1/2” name plate inserts, bold-colored borders give a new twist to Name Plate Holders, thus earning its People Spotter designation in the dynamic office of tomorrow. Customizing inserts can also be accomplished quickly and easily with perforated heavy gauge card stock included free on select orders for cost-effective DIY printing. Polished edges and premium thickness material add durability to style.

As NeoCon celebrates show number 50, we thought you might enjoy a quick look at a Herman Miller NeoCon entry from the funky days of 1974: Don Chadwick Modular Furniture, five units connected in a “sinuous configuration!”

Cubicles Then and Now: from Name Plate Holders to People Spotters™

Untitled design(3)We recently touched on the origin of the office cubicle, first introduced in 1968 as an “Action Office” system by the Michigan furniture manufacturing company, Herman Miller. Herman Miller, which opened in 1905, turned to Robert Probst for a design “not to keep us apart while at work, but to set us free.” The Action Office was thus proclaimed as the world’s first open-plan modular system of flexible panels…with a revolutionary ability to reconfigure in changing office layouts.

Ironically, it was the changing office landscape that led to conflicting reviews of the Action Office. In the 70s and 80s, those who chose a partition pattern that simply crammed more workers into a smaller footprint brought about a stinging rebuke among discontent staff.

Today’s push for newer, more open-air floor plans is helping inspire another look at the trusty cubicle. Imagination and ingenuity are creating interior office designs unlike anything around when Action Office was first introduced.

Cubicle Name Plate Holder


Innovative office designs now approach cubicles much differently. No longer a mind-numbing labyrinth of partitions, technological developments have made it possible to create independent work pods out of cubicles. Wireless and paperless work environments offer more freedom and require less cumbersome forms of storage. Modern workstations are increasingly taking the form of a mini-living room, not a cage.

One element that’s still essential, regardless of partition layout? That’s the Cubicle Name Plate Holder so key to identification. New People Spotters are keeping pace with office dynamics, adding style and distinction to spotlight the individual. Polished acrylic with bold Colored Border Name Plate Holders makes name and title inserts pop!

Silver, black, bronze, or white, Cubicle Name Plate Holders provide a fine showcase for personalized 8-1/2” x 2-1/2” inserts with polished edges and superior color detail. That makes a sharp contrast against the partition wall and an aesthetically appealing addition to the cubicle.
