  • Logo Entrance Mat – not just for Businesses

    Logo Entrance Mat and Custom Oak Sign in situ Our competition winners custom oak sign and logo entrance mat were used in the outdoor learning area of their school

    Corporate businesses are increasingly recognising the importance of having a logo entrance mat that displays and promotes their company branding.

    Logo Entrance Mat:

    We produce a variety of types of logo mats for businesses but we’ve also realised the versatility of logo entrance mats in exhibiting other images for non-business situations.

    School Competition:

    A brilliant example of this was when we recently sponsored a competition at a local primary school. The children, aged seven and under, were asked to create a design for their new outdoor learning area. The winning image would be printed onto an All Weather Outdoor Logo Mat and engraved into a Custom Oak Sign.

    The children put lots of thought into what would make striking and informative logos to identify their special new learning area. They submitted some fantastic designs.

    We are really proud of how closely we were able to keep to the children's designs and how well they transferred onto the mat and sign.

    Because our All Weather Logo Mats are super hard wearing and are not damaged by the elements, the mat can stay in situ all year long for everyone to enjoy.

    Custom Oak Sign:

    The Logo Entrance Mat, paired with the Custom Oak Sign is an effective way of helping visitors know that they’ve arrived in the right place. As shown by the competition entries, we can pretty much produce anything on these products. This means you can be as creative as you like.

  • Music Department Mat

    Over the years we have made some amazing mats!

    Music Department Piano Key Mat Music Department Piano Key Mat

    A while back we were approached by a music teacher to help her design a mat to be used as a teaching aid in the primary school music department.

    What we made for her was a real beauty, with a musical stave running the length of the may and a piano key design around the edge.

    The children sit around the edge of the mat for the lesson and the teacher finds it a real help with teaching music.

    As you can see, the mats we make are not simply limited to being used to wipe your feet. Do you have an idea you would like us to help you with?

    Simply call our creative team on 020 8819 5869 and let us see how we can help you.

    Check back soon for our new post where we reveal a beautiful outdoor mat we created in a schools competition.
