Announce a Name, a Number, a Message and More

Monday, July 12th, 2010

If you are having a special event, like a school fair, speaker panel or birthday party, you can easily and inexpensively create formal name tents. Name Tents & Holders, from C-Line Products, provide a look for your event that is a step above the rest.

Rather than just using a piece of paper folded in half, the cardstock name tents are designed to fit in the heavyweight plastic holder.  Not only does this create a durable sign, but it also looks neat and clean.  Plus, the rigid holder helps the sign to keep from falling.

The name tents can be designed using your computer, then printed to your inkjet or laser printer. The name tents are letter size so they will conveniently print using any standard printer; not special formatting necessary. Then fold in half, along the scoring, and insert into the reusable plastic holder. Now, display the sign prominently to let people know a speaker’s name, a table’s number or where a check-in point is located.

A good suggestion for using the name tent in an office – as an “out of the office” sign. Place the name tent in your inbox. I realize many people rely on auto greetings and replies, from their email or phone, to let people know they are out. But many people forget about their co-workers, who sometimes don’t know the vacation schedules of others. Let them know you are out and when you will return.

A New Craft Idea for Children, in a Convenient Roll

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

We are a few weeks into summer now. Are you already finding yourself looking for new arts and crafts projects for your children? Look no further than GoWrite Self Stick Dry Erase Rolls.

Although the rolls may be commonplace in school and office, it can easily be used as a fun, creative project for kids. Take this product, combine it with an idea that restaurants have used for decade, and you will have hours of entertainment for your children.

Roll the sheet onto a table top and set out dry erase markers in a variety of colors. Then, tell your children to draw what they did the day before, what they see outside or what inspires them. While drawing, if they don’t like something on the picture, they don’t have to start over. Because the rolls are large, but portable dry erase boards, they can wipe the marker off that one spot and continue on.

If you like this idea, it travels well too. If you are planning a vacation this summer, throw a roll and some dry erase markers in a backpack. You’ll be able to take the art project with you wherever you go.
