Dry Erase Surfaces – An Easy Whiteboard Solution | Innovative Office Solutions

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 10.57.54 AM

Dry-Erase boards are practically indispensable.  For meetings, brainstorming sessions, or just doodling – they are useful in more ways than one.  Sadly, they only have so much life to them before they start to look stained.  Until now.  With their innovation, 3M has yet again saved the day.

Take The Nerdery, for example.  An interactive software development company who’s culture thrives on collaboration, The Nerdery continually puts their whiteboards to the test.  “We are a huge whiteboard culture,” says Nerdery sales director Alan Kramer.  Because of that culture, The Nerdery needed to upgrade their white boards situation as their older whiteboards just weren’t cutting it.

“Just about every square inch of the perimeter is white board,” says the Jason, facilities manager at The Nerdery.  “We have some portable whiteboard walls that we’ve had for a long time that we’re considering getting ride of because they’re ghosted out – and now we can just resurface them.”

“We’ve resurfaced a meeting table that had a big scratch in it and we were ready to throw it out – and now its a whiteboard table.”

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 10.05.15 AM

The act of actually installing dry-erase boarding material or resurfacing older white boards isn’t as daunting a task as it may seem.  “The process of installing it was way easier than I thought it was going to be.  It was very smooth; it went on there perfect,” says Alex, an interactive program manager at The Nerdery.

Screen Shot 2014-11-24 at 10.58.30 AM

 

The Post-It® Dry Erase Surface goes on in 3 easy steps:

  • Can be cut to fit custom surfaces or existing boards
  • Peel-and-stick construction sticks securely and removes cleanly
  • 3M’s stain-proof material cleanly erases after every use

See for yourself the in the video below what these new surfaces from 3M can bring to your business.  And if you think your business could use some new whiteboards – or dry-erase surfaces – visit our Innovative Office Solutions website or contact Customer Care 952.808.9900 for more info!

Top 5 Things You’ll Need for Your Next Big Meeting or Event | Innovative Office Solutions

Everyone likes S.W.A.G. – or Stuff We All Get – as made famous by Michael Scott.  That being said, how do we make sure people actually want to keep our S.W.A.G.?  Well, we’re here to answer that question – and to be your go-to when it comes to all of your meeting/event/company get-together needs!

When planning an event, it can sometimes feel like you need to prepare an incredible amount of documents for attendees.  Sure, this is partly true – but fear not!  We’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 things we think you’ll need for your next big meeting or event, and best of all – we can take care of everything!

1. Pre-Conference Mailers

By sending out a pre-conference mailing, you can better gauge the amount of people who want to register for your next event.  Think of it as an RSVP or “Save the Date” – and it never hurts to know this information as soon as possible.   Another great reason for these are for informing your audience of sponsorship opportunities

Innovative Office Solutions Print

2. Speaker Material and Handouts

Hand out speaker material and information as soon as your audience arrives so they know what to expect – material and time-wise.  Things like daily itinerary and a program of speakers can be handed out prior to events starting, helping keep the event moving as smoothly as possible – while keeping everyone on the same page.

Follow-up your event or meeting with a questionnaire.  What could you do better next time?  This is viable information that can be utilized for the planning of future events, and to get a general idea of how attendees felt about your get-together.

Innovative Office Solutions Print

3. Program agenda/ Event Schedules

When talking about event or meeting take-aways, presentation, oftentimes, is everything.  The nicer the presentation of documents, the more referred to they will be – and the more your company will be remembered.  Bound program books are a great option when looking into easy to use and eye-catching materials for your audience.  Not just program books, but also bound event schedules – again making the event or meeting as memorable as possible, and something to which attendees often refer.

Innovative Office Solutions Print

4. Signage

Proper signage is essential for any meeting or event.  Easel board signage, directional boards and banners are all items that can sometimes be overlooked, but are greatly appreciated by those visiting for their first time.  Clearly marked registration areas are also helpful as they point newcomers in the right direction, and once registered – can focus solely on the event and enjoy their time.

Innovative Office Solutions Print

 

5.  Attendee Materials

Once attendees are all signed in and settled, now it’s networking time.  Things like ID Badges and Labels are crucial for even attendees as they clearly identify the attendee, and allows them to mingle with other like-minded folks.  Not to be forgotten are dinner and drink tickets, as these items are crucial to helping folks kick back and become more comfortable during your meeting or event.
