_smcoroplast2Why Is Coroplast a Good Choice?

Although there are better choices for long term signs, Coroplast’s adaptability makes it an excellent choice for many short-term uses – both indoors and temporarily, outdoors. The product is cost-effective yet provides a strong visual presence. Its benefits include the fact that it is a lightweight product, making it easy to handle, yet effective in a variety of situations. Coroplast’s light quality can be attributed to its corrugated plastic structure. This innovative structure allows the product to blend both strength and durability with a lightweight construction. Read more about Coroplast’s benefits on our products and services page.

Indoor And Outdoor Use

This versatile product is suitable for both indoor and temporary outdoor use. Simple vinyl graphics can be applied to the product, allowing you to present your message to your customers. The product can be cut to a wide variety of sizes and used in a variety of ways. It can be placed in sign holders, attached to walls, hung from ceilings, attached to stakes, or attached to wired stands. Its rigid plastic construction makes it durable enough to be used outside – even in Canadian winters!

coroplast_lawn_signSome of Coroplast’s Advantages

Coroplast is tougher than cardboard, fibreboard, and card stock. It is also considerably lighter than solid plastic signs. Although often used as temporary signage, Coroplast is durable enough to last for up to two years in the outdoors, although due to its lightness, it can be susceptible to extremely high winds. The product can be cleaned easily, is stain resistant, and waterproof.

What Should My Coroplast Sign Look Like?

Coroplast can be cut to any sign size you require and comes in a variety of colours. This allows you to create a simple design with a simple message or let your creative juices flow with something more intricate. Signs can be used to display your business name, advertise a special, announce an upcoming event, provide directions, direct business traffic, provide temporary information, display restaurant specials, and so much more. Bring your design to us at Westmount or, if you are unsure of what you want to do, talk to one of our design specialists.

What Should You Look For In a Supplier?

When it comes to looking for a supplier for any business product, there are some critical factors that should be present. Here we examine some of the following factors:

  • Reliability
  • Quality
  • Value
  • A Good Reputation
  • Strong Customer Service
  • Teamwork Approach

business meeting room Are They Reliable?

Will they get the job done on time and as requested? It is one thing for a supplier to make a commitment to do what is requested, but another to get it done as requested and on schedule. Check to determine whether they have a record for reliability.

Do They Provide Top Quality at a Reasonable Price?

A great price is not so great if it is followed up with shoddy workmanship and poor quality. Can the supplier provide both a great price and a quality product? Ask to review their work. Can you visit one of their customers? Does their work meet the standards you require?

“From the initial meeting to the design of my signs to the final completion it was one of the best experiences I have ever had dealing with a company in my 18 years in business. If you need a company to trust that has your best interest in mind at all times call Simon and I promise you will not be disappointed.”

-A. Marks

business meeting roomTip #1 – Create A Stand-Out Sign

Do you want to create a stand-out sign? Check out this simple dimensional signage that nevertheless, sends out a clear message about the purpose of the room. We wonder if the idea for this sign was hatched in this room? The stark surroundings offer few distractions, and accompanied by the sign, give a clear indication of what is expected here. The lesson  is to ensure that the design expresses the primary role that the room is intended to carry out.

This is a great example of a dimensional sign making a strong impact. Dimensional meeting room signs can be created  in a wide variety of methods including cut out, cast,  moulded, and fabricated. This example comes to us courtesy of www.design-milk.com

business meeting room signsTip # 2 – Name Your Rooms

Here is an effective, clear cut, acrylic meeting room sign that accomplishes a couple of things effectively. First, it indicates the name applied to this particular business meeting room – in this case, Tofino. Having specific names ascribed to multiple business rooms is more effective than simply using a series of numbers.

You can choose a series of names that has particular significance to the business. For example, name rooms after  former board members, place names that have particular significance to the business such as satellite locations, or products and brands. Your choices are only limited by your imagination. If you are lacking ideas or are looking for something unusual and memorable, browse through this list from www.davincimeetingrooms.com.

Secondly, the slider at the bottom moves in either direction, indicating whether the room is in use. This can prevent double bookings and unwanted intrusions.

Tip #3 – Consider Your Corporate Culturebusiness meeting rooms

What is your corporate culture? Is it serious or dignified? Choose business meeting room names that reflect this aspect of your business. Are you a brash and bold – an up and coming start-up? Your business meeting room names might want to reflect that, like this one referenced in an article about Microsoft’s new app, and entitled “Meeting Room Of Destiny.”

Is your corporate culture innovative, technological, and creative? Choose names that demonstrate that this is who you are. Think of your meeting rooms as places to showcase your cultural symbolism.

reception signsReception Hall

Bold, stand-out signage in your reception hall is a must for business meeting room signage. When your visitors enter your building, meeting room signage is one of the first things that they should see.  Clear wayfinding signage information that points to the business meeting rooms, and makes a strong impression will convey a positive impression on your visitors telling them that this is a business that knows where it is headed and has the interests of visitors at heart. These signs should be subtly colourful, yet eye-catching,  blending with your company’s colours and logo while providing guidance. Don’t skimp on reception hall signage.

Wayfinding signs will direct your visitors to the business meeting room as they begin to negotiate the corridors and hallways that may be well-known to you, but are new territory to them. These types of signs can direct people to meeting rooms and also provide information along the way, such as directions to lunchrooms, washrooms, exits, etc. Signs like these can be used in indoor and outdoor spaces.

Door Signs

Make sure that your business meeting rooms themselves are clearly marked. Clear, bold fonts are best. The signage may also include information that is changeable,  to facilitate the different groups that might be visiting at different times. For example, you may wish to show scheduled meeting times, and the name of the group that will be using the room at that time. This will not only help to assist your guests in finding the location but will also help to avoid double-bookings.

Your business meeting room itself should have signage in the interior of the room. In-room signage that displays company logos reinforces branding. If it is a large room and a large meeting, it may be appropriate to have custom event signage. This could include banners and posters that direct people to displays and promotional materials.
