While name plates are common in most workplaces, we all need them for different reasons.
And, many of us have a desk or cubicle at work, so it’s easy to display that coveted piece of personal identification. And while most name plates have a name and title, some are used for other reasons around the office.
Name plates easily sit on a corner or small portion of your desk.
There are many ways to accomplish this useful tool. Use a traditional metal desk holder for your plastic or metal engraved name plate. These sit conveniently on the corner of any desk so that they are visible to passersby. Another option is to choose an acrylic desk block or executive desk wedge. These options, while a little less traditional, actually offer an upgrade to your name plate look.
Another option for a desk top is the plastic desk base. This classy item fits most designs and still allow the nameplate to sit on the corner of your desk comfortably. Or, be a little less traditional and set it on your computer monitor or tower.
Attach a name plate to the front of a desk.
Using either a wall mount or adhesive, attach the plate on the front of your desk. This idea is perfect for the current trend of standing desks. That way, no matter the height of your desk, your name plate will always be visible. Choose from Velcro, magnets or double-sided tape to accomplish this simple, yet effective presentation.
Using an adhesive also enables you to attach name plates to other objects on or near your desk. Use the double-sided tape to mount the plate to stacking desk trays or a white board.
Mount the plate on a wall or door of your office or cubicle.
From Contemporary Name Plates to traditional engraved name plates, one of the most popular ways to display room names and numbers and directions is to hang them on the wall. Accomplish this easily by using a wall mount or an adhesive. We also offer partition pins to hang your plate on the side of your cubicle conveniently.
Maybe you need to label a section of a wall for different types of forms? Simply attach this useful item next to the section, and just like that you’re done! And everyone in the office can see what they need and how easy it is to get it.
What creative way do you display your name plate?
Do you have yours hanging from the ceiling? Maybe it’s secured to your desk in a different way. Or is it in the hallway outside your office? We want to hear how you have your name plate displayed!
We’ve had another great year here at Coller Industries. 2016 brought a few changes, but they were all needed, and we have benefited from them greatly!
We have also seen more growth to our inventory. Not only does this increase mean more options for our customers, but it means strength to our brand. We released three new products this year to meet the requests and needs of our customers.
Conference Name Tags
These new name tags are a perfect solution for any meeting planner’s need for inexpensive name badges. Instead of spending your time printing inserts and stuffing vinyl name badge holders (which are still available), we print your attendees’ names on custom laminated tags.
Contemporary Name Plates
These name plates are the perfect solution for desks, cubicles, front counters and reception areas to provide instructions and identification. They are made from quality eco-friendly materials and are a cost-effective solution. The plates are easy to customize in any office. Just print a paper insert and assemble the professional looking name plate.
The partition pins easily hang a name plate from a cloth covered cubicle wall. Just attach to the back of any name plate or sign for easy visibility.
As with previous years, we have also seen growth inside of our company. We have a new Customer Service Manger and a Senior Account Manager. Hannah and Aimee (respectively) are here to serve our customer’s every need. Of course, we still have the best customer service around to help anyone with their personal identification needs.
Due to some of our new products, our production and shipping department has seen an increase in our machinery. This includes a laminator as well as a new, fancy printer for our name tags. Production and shipping also do a fantastic job with making sure all customer orders are produced and shipped appropriately and promptly.
It was also recently announced at our annual employee Christmas party that our error rate is still under 1%! Here’s a quick review of our current year-to-date statistics:
Since January 1, 2016, Coller Industries has had a total of 122 errors coming from 31,694 orders total. Our overall error rate is 0.393%. This means that 1 in about every 255 orders may contain a mistake; great news for our customers!
Coller Industries would like to thank all of our wonderful customers for an outstanding year! You are the reason we are in business, and we want to acknowledge that. And with that thank you, we also wish you a wonderful and happy New Year!
Last week we announced a new name plate product. This week, we have another one: partition pins!
Not only are name plates common in office settings, but they are often seen in retail and other settings. The conundrum, however, comes when trying to find the right type of name plate and fastener or holder to use.
There are many different options for name plates. We offer a basic laser engraved name plate, which is great for a quick name and title. This type of name plate is the most versatile and can be moved around with a person from office to office, or cubicle to cubicle. But what happens when they need to be hung on a cubical or movable wall? We’ve all seen those wonderful fabric walls! So, we’re introducing our new Partition Pins!
Partition Pins are designed for attaching name plates and small office signage to fabric, cloth or carpet on walls, doors, cubicles and partitions. These pins are perfect for a do-it-yourself alternative to other fastener options such as Velcro, adhesive or screws. Simply attach these pins, which come in pairs, to the back of a name plate and slide the pins into the cloth on a cubicle wall. These pins securely hold the name plate up until it’s time to move it. They are also easily used on a wall mount instead of directly on the back of a name plate. These pins are also made so they don’t damage partition or cubicle walls.
These partition pins can be attached to all of our name plates and most of the wall mounts. Simply peel the backing off the adhesive on the back of the pin and press firmly down onto the desired surface. They prevent slipping and falling!
So, the next time you need to hand something on a cubicle wall, think of the wonderful new addition of Partition Pins to the Name Tag, Inc. line!
