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?Â

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

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

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.

door matsAre you looking for durable, luxury, indoor carpet mats to protect interior floors? Most people naturally think of welcome mats or outdoor entrance mats for walkways and front porches; but what about something for just inside the doorway, or even a breezeway, for when people are in a hurry to get out of the rain, sleet, or snow, and they don’t take enough time to wipe their feet on your decorative welcome mat?

Then, once inside, they apologize for getting your floors all wet and/or muddy, and you keep thinking, “Boy…we sure need some mats for just inside the door for people to clean their feet off!” It’s at times like those you realize you have no one to blame but yourself for not putting down some good entrance mats to catch not only the water and grime, but also to protect your own liability against falls due to slippery floors.

Outdoor Entrance Mats

door matsDecorative welcome mats aren’t appropriate for most commercial settings. Maybe you’re a commercial professional developer who has just built a nice facility to serve as your model office space, and you want to make a nice presentation. Are home-style door mats going to be the appropriate choice for your situation? Well…not likely; not if you want to make an impression of professionalism that doesn’t smack of real estate agent, when you’re dealing with a different group of professionals.

Thank goodness, then, there are tough, sharp-looking, commercial entrance mats that will provide nice footing to every entryway, will pick up impurities on people’s feet, and will even be suitable to place in your breezeway, and just inside the door, before visitors and employees step onto, perhaps, nice, hardwood floors.

Custom Logo Door Mats

Posted on: May 21st, 2010 by

door matsTypically, the most attractive or impressive door mats most of us see are something ornate on the front porch of a highbrow residence or perhaps multimillion dollar business, or…maybe at the entrance of a Hollywood studio.  If you take a stroll through an upscale business park, you will most likely run across a few businesses that have had their own custom logo door mats with the company logo embroidered, stamped, or painted on the entrance mat, or mats in the breezeway.

If you own a business and have always wanted your own company logo mats for your place of business or as promotional items, you can have your own mats custom made in either bulk orders or single mats; no order is too big or small.  Custom logo mats really ad that bit of pizazz your business has been missing all along.  So why not trade out your conservative entrance mats for some distinctive, custom logo mats with your company logo or motto deeply embedded in the mat material?

Rubber Outdoor Entrance Mats

door matsWe’ve said the older, time-tested, rubber outdoor entrance mat is still around in the world of door mats, and we meant it!  The reason being?  Rubber mats for outdoor use, are very practical and desirable; some basic needs just don’t change, and durable, rubber door mats are appropriate for so many situations.

For instance, if you have a patio or some stone or brick steps where you would like to place a large, rubber mat to protect against slips when your patio is wet, covered in ice, or simply where you’d like a softer place for people to step, or a where a need for people to wipe their feet, perhaps decorative front door mats aren’t really what you would look for to suit your needs.  That’s one instance when the “good, old-fashioned”, rubber outdoor entrance mat just can’t be beat!

entrance matsWhen you’re looking for entrance door mats with carpet top, rubber welcome mats just don’t cut it, now do they?  Sure, recycled rubber door mats are gorgeous and are great for greeting guests, who need to wipe their shoes, but you can’t expect those arriving at your business or even home to stand out in the rain, if you don’t have a covered porch, wiping their feet—especially if they don’t happen to have an umbrella, now can you?

And you don’t have to worry about spending an arm and a leg for decent entrance mats, either.  Low cost entry door mats are readily available and come in a variety of colors and appearances to fit most any taste and need—typically in conservative profiles, so as not to draw unwanted attention to them selves.
