So, you’ve decided that you want to order a mat for your business. It is important to remember that not every mat is the same. In fact, there are dozens of varieties available each with a different purpose and appearance. Here are four questions you should ask yourself before you order a mat for your organization.
- Where will you use the rug? Will you be using it indoors or outdoors? Will customers see it or only staff members? This can help you determine exactly what type of mats you will want to look at during your shopping stage.
- How will you use the mat? Are you choosing a mat to reduce stress on your employee’s feet or to absorb water? Is the mat a promotional tool? Knowing the function of the mat helps you choose the right one for the job.
- What is the traffic level? A mat for a high traffic environment is drastically different from one for a low traffic area. You need to think hard about where you will place the mat so you can pick one that will stand the test of time.
- What is the artwork? For promotional mats, you want a bright, colorful design. Spend some time looking over the different types of artwork processes available. Spot color and 4-color process are both common methods of transferring art onto a rug.
These are just a few of the questions you should ask before buying a rug. Put plenty of thought into the process so you have a rug that will serve you well today and for years to come.
