Carpet Log Mats – It’s Your Customers First Impression!

Posted on: January 9th, 2013 by
Logo mats are washable, durable, and fade resistant! Branding is considered absolutely essential when diving into the world market place. Your brand is the representation of your product, your service, and in many cases, the owners, and the individuals that actually make up the company. Being such a powerful badge of representation in the world marketplace, everything from a small business to international conglomerates rely on their brand to speak to the world on their behalf.
Logos and presentation of this logo at tradeshows, meetings, on business cards, or entrance mats helps to burn in the capitalist values of our world into the psyche of the individual thus promoting your business in ways that a brand-less company couldn’t even compete.
Our carpet logo mats can be customized to present your brand and logo on anything from a commercial lobby to your small mom and pop shop and everything in between. These also fit very well on top of our tradeshow flooring should you not want to outsource a third party to produce vinyl or print directly onto your interlocking floor mats. Also, there are no artwork or set-up fees for our Carpet Logo Mats so the price you see online, is the price you pay.

Indoor Entrance Mats To The Rescue!

Posted on: January 8th, 2013 by

Entrance mats can be custom made as carpet runnersI love being a host.  There’s so much more to a party than a group of people and food. To me the point of a party is to get away from the daily norm and relax. Whenever I host a get together I try to transform my house as much as possible. Decorations are an important part.  There is just something about decorations that makes everyone want to celebrate. Decorations makes a party, well, seem more like a party. 

Aside from decorations I make other slight alterations to my house, from rearranging furniture to taking down things that can be broken.  In the bathroom I put hand sanitizers, gum, lotion and anything else a good bathroom attendant might provide. It’s also pretty common for there to be Dry erase markers next to every mirror in the house so you can leave messages or draw pictures, silly string so you can just be silly. Basically I like to give my guests the feeling that they can let loose and not worry about messes. Silly string can be cleaned up, dry erase markers wipe up, spills on wood wipe right up and couch covers protect the furniture.  I try to just let people have a fun experience. But the one part of my house that is forever being damaged by my get togethers is my hallway carpet.  Being white, it shows every drip or drop or sneeze and I hate it!

I tried towels and plastic but both look so unbelievably tacky, that I would rather have dirty carpet. I usually put strobe lights and a smoke machine in my hallway to hide the carpet and the walls I need to paint. Problem is, I think that causes more spills.

Entrance matscould be the answer. I thought about buying a carpet runner, but they can be so expensive! I’ve spent years trying to solve this problem, all the while having the perfect inexpensive product here!  Our Standard Olefin indoor entrance mats would be perfect for my hallway! The Standard Olefin mats are typically entrance mats, but with  a customizable length up to 60’, it can easily be a used as carpet runners.  Plus! The colors are not only darker, but kind of two toned which will help hide dirt.  Come to think of it, this might be a good permanent solution to my hallway (since replacing the carpet isn’t an option right now). Although I would probably go with one of our nicer mats, like the Plush Olefin or rubber floor mats like the Royale,  if it was going to be permanent.


Indoor Entrance Floor Mats To The Rescue!

Posted on: October 24th, 2012 by

We’re now entering our 8th month of summer here in So Cal.  You Easterners probably think we’re spoiled, complaining about the perfect weather, but too much of a good thing… Plus, not having regular rain really makes us unprepared.  I’m not even going to discuss the fact that people out here suddenly become crippled when it comes to driving in the rain. Â

I exaggerate, of course, but it’s so perfect all the time that I’m not properly prepared when it does rain.  I don’t own an umbrella.  I seriously lack proper footwear.  Thank goodness I have proper entrance mats to clean off all the gook my shoes collect!  I have hardwood floor, so cleaning up is no problem.  But, I HAVE HARDWOOD FLOORS!!  Water and ick can’t possibly be good for it.  The grains are starting to look a little darker next to my doors.

 I had a customer call me the other day who was from Georgia.  She said her door mats get so saturated with water, they are useless.  She wanted something that would help keep moisture and dirt off her floors, but didn’t have to be hung to dry every day.  I suggested our Sponge Mat, which got me thinking about my own house.  They look pretty nice and actually trap up to a gallon and a half of water per square yard! Â

The other thing I love about indoor entrance floor mats, well this one, is the grippers on the back.  I already have a problem with my furniture slipping and sliding, and it’s heavy!  I think I’m going to get matching indoor entrance mats for my front and back door, which has a dog door on it and leads into my laundry room.  My dogs coming in and out all day is really taking its toll on my tile.  I would think since the “channels” in the Sponge Mat can trap water, it stands to reason they can trap dirt and hair and dust (instead of my grout!).  If I had it my way I’d have my whole house optimized in MatsMatsMats.com stuff.


Interlocking Floor Mats, Playground Mats, Entrance Mats, I See Mats Everywhere!!!

Posted on: October 22nd, 2012 by

Interlocking floor mats have many usesAllow myself to introduce…myself.  I’m Stag, the most recent addition to the ‘matstastic’ world of MatsMatsMats.com.  Over the last few weeks I have been introduced and educated on the very wide variety of playground mats, yoga mats, entrance mats and all kinds of mats and other products that we have to offer.  As I learn more and more about our wonderful products I find myself in an almost hyper-vigilant state of awareness.  Almost everywhere I go I find some type of door mats or an exercise mat that we offer.
Simply visiting restaurants and markets, and walking over the entrance mats; taking a second glance downward and thinking, “Hmmm, that looks like a Stayput Gripper Indoor Entry Mat”.  Or realizing that the playgrounds that I visited as a child were covered with Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles EPDM Playground Surface Tiles.  The more that I learn our products the more I see them everywhere I frequent.  I quite literally see mats everywhere!
So as the weeks and month progress I look forward to brining you more of my experiences, insights and folly’s.  Till then fellow travelers.

Entrance Mats and Cats…

Posted on: September 10th, 2012 by
I’ve got a bad, bad headache today.  I mean really bad.  You know why?  Because I recently became a father.  It wasn’t planned really.  I just got caught up in the moment of my girlfriend moving in and before you know it… I agreed that I would help her take her CAT, Bobby!
Bobby, at least for now, is just like a newborn Entrance mats can be fun for catsson.  Constant liter changes, 4 hours sleep cycles, and nothing but noise come 2:30am. This has made it considerably hard to keep it together after an eight and a half hour workday then coming home him while he gets adjusted to his new home.  Lots of clawing.  Lots of spraying.  It’s not so much the meowing or the constant roiling of cat liter at night, but the continuous scratching sounds of this fine, young feline specimen using our very nice rug (a gift from my mother) as a if he were kneading pizza dough has to stop!  My girlfriend suddenly got the bright idea that since I work at MatsMatsMats.com, there HAS to be some kind of ‘cat rug’.  Something that he can scratch into all he wants, but won’t completely destroy as he’s on his way to doing with our nice plush rug.  Little does she know, we’ve yet to truly tap into the pet market.
The headache persists, and as I thought of what to convey to all you fine people in the blogosphere, I found myself taking twelve aspirin and then it happened… a moment of clarity.  I scurried over to our Maxima Mat samples (typically used as entry floor mats or door mats) .  All of a sudden, I found a durable mat with no ‘loose’ fibers that a cat would have a hard time ripping through. This mat will be put to the test this weekend and we shall see how well it holds up against this adorable ball of orange-white animal anxiety.  Obviously, a product that is traditionally used as entrance mats isn’t spray-proof (if you own a male cat, you know…), but it is made of 45 oz. extra coarse polypropylene fibers that can scrape the smart off a string-theorist (file under poorly executed astrophysics jokes).
I’m confident it will hold up against the rage of a cat removed from his home of 6 years and into the abyss that is the recording studio/love shack/pin-pong death-arena that is ‘Casa de Benigno’.  More as it develops.

Home Door Mats

Posted on: September 4th, 2012 by

The Cleanscrape Welcome Iron Front Door Mats in Coffee ColorI just moved into a new home and feel very lucky that I work for a company that sells, among other things, home door mats.  We needed a front door mat and also a mat for the back door.  I forgot how important these mats were until I noticed how much dirt was being tracked inside our new house.  I thought about going to Costco or something to get a mat, but I didn’t want to settle on just anything, so I spent some time to look through the huge selection of entrance mats we have at MatsMatsMats.com. 

Cleanscrape home door mats - Celtic Lattice in CoffeeI decided to go off a customers recommendation whom I had recently spoken to.  She bought a couple different patterns of our CleanScrape Mats.  She had a friend that had bought our mats and they told her how excellent they were holding up.  So I sat down and picked out a couple different CleanScrape styles and sizes I liked.  I received them at my house about a week ago… delivered to my “front door.”  They look awesome.  Being in our early 30′s we play all kinds of sports and get plenty dirty.  We got the Celtic Lattice mat for our back door so any water can drain all the way through as it is not a covered area.  For the front we purchased the Welcome Iron mat.  We were able to get them in matching coffee colors.

People have different tastes (styles, colors, etc.) and different needs (sizes, quantities, etc.), but whatever your needs are I’m sure MatsMatsMats.com will have what your looking for… and if not, they can always make custom door mats (custom sizes or custom logo door mats) to fit your needs.  So, whether you’re moving into a new house or apartment – like me – or just need to replace your existing door mats, it might behove you to check out the selection of mats offered by MatsMatsMats.com.  They also offer a huge selection of quality commercial and industrial mats for the workplace, so keep that in mind too!


Logo Door Mats

Posted on: October 5th, 2011 by

Logo Door Mats for office, retail or restaurantLogo door mats are ideal for any place of business.  Whether you are a restaurant owner, the owner of a retail store or a hair salon you will undoubtedly purchase a door mat for the entry of your establishment.  So, why not let entry mats do a little advertising for you too? 

There are many different options when it comes to custom logo mats.  The mats that are designed exclusively for outdoor use are typically made entirely of rubber.  Generally your color options and logo design options are very limited on these types of entrance mats.  There are usually limited sizes available as well.

That being said, most businesses purchase entrance mats that are placed on the inside of the entry.  The logo mats for this use is typically a vinyl or rubber backed mat with a carpeted to surface (rubber backing being preferred due to better durability).  Most manufacturers of these types of mats are able to produce the logo in virtually any colors and almost any design.  The mats can be a combination of colors and a large selection of mat sizes (and even custom sizes) are available.

A minimum quantity of mats is not required – you can order a single logo mat.  The mats are generally a very inexpensive way to protect the floors at your entrance, prevent excess dirt and debris from entering your establishment and market your business at the same time.


Attractive Kitchen Mats

Posted on: June 16th, 2010 by

decorative home use matsI think, very soon, I will—admittedly—for the first time, will buy some decorative door mats and a nice kitchen mat for our home.  But not just yet.  Why?  Well…right now we don’t have a kitchen in our home.  No, really.  The walls are mostly exposed.  The sink is gone [thank goodness with new plumbing], no cabinets, we’re down to sub-flooring, and we’re waiting on a guy to come finish framing out the back wall for the sliding glass door that put our entire project on hold for nearly two weeks. Everything revolves around that sliding door being installed: the flooring, the cabinets, the sink…everything but the texture on the walls.

Now, in case you’re saying to yourself, “He doesn’t have to wait for the kitchen to be done to buy a couple of entrance mats to help keep the dirt out of his house as he and workers traipse in and out,” and you’d be right; I just want the mats to serve as some sort of “closure” on the whole remodeling ordeal.  Maybe I’ll just buy some plain, inexpensive door mats and replace them with the decorative kind later.


Sticky Tacky Mats

Posted on: June 16th, 2010 by

trade show flooringHave you ever bought one of those two-sided rolls of 4” wide masking tape designed for removing lint from your clothing, or for whatever purpose double-sided tape can be used? I LOVE those things! Well, what if you could have something like that for your shoes, or for the shoes of visitors to your home or work place that requires dirt and other contaminants not be tracked into a certain area? Sticky, or tacky mats are among the greatest of inventions in the world of commercial or industrial trade show flooring products.

These pads of sticky, two-sided mats are fantastic for capturing grime that invariably clings to the bottoms of our shoes. The pads of sticky mats come in a wide variety of dimensions, from 18” x 36” up to 36” x 46” [with several sizes in between], and peel off just like those rolls of lint tape you use on your clothes. These would be a great “post mat” to put down, just after visitors step onto your entrance mats, which will catch heavier grime and moisture.
