Organizational Benefits of Desktop Wire Display Racks

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Wire Display RacksIf you’re like me, you probably have a lot of literature sitting on your desk. This clutter is annoying, and if you directly work with customers and clients, it can be equally frustrating for them. Information should be organized and presentable, if not for you, for your customers. Simply put, it’s professional.

One of the best ways that you can clean up and organize your desk is by using a desktop display rack or literature holder. One of the most modern and classy ways to display literature on a desk is to use a wire display racks. I’m not talking about coat hanger wire; I’m referring to tough heavy-gauge wire.

Wire displays are designed to hold up through daily use. Among many benefits, they are often available in a variety of different powder coat finishes, with black being the most common color. Not only can they be used to display literature to your customers, patients and clients, they can also be used to simply organize material on your own desk for your own use.

Benefits of Wire Display Racks

Durability – Wire display racks are tough. They can hold a lot of material, without any wear, and can withstand many types of direct impacts (i.e. falling on the floor) without suffering damage. These types of racks are more durable than wooden or plastic displays.

Visibility – Wire displays make literature, magazines, brochures and other material extremely easy to view. This is because the design of wire, by nature, is easy to see through.

Accessibility – Wire makes literature extremely easy to access. If you can’t grab the material from the top, you can often lift it out or access it from the side.

Affordability – While you might think wire displays would be expensive, they are actually competitively priced, right around the same price as a wood or plastic display.

Where to Find:

We have been selling wire desktop display racks, freestanding wire displays and wall-mounted wire display racks for years now and they have all been a huge hit with our customers.

Tabletop Brochure, Business Card & Magazine Display Options

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Tabletop Revolving Display, Magazine & Literature RacksPresenting literature on a desk or table is sometimes one of the best ways to get your material out to customers, clients and others. This is especially the case in a lobby, reception desk or table where people frequently pass by. You can use tabletop displays to present literature such as business cards, pamphlets, brochures and magazines. So what are some of the best tabletop literature display options? I’ll go over a few customer favorites.

To begin with, you should make your literature easy to view. I recommend using a display holder or rack with a clear plastic front. This will protect literature while making it easy to view and access. If you have a lot of literature, you may want to consider a display with a carousel / revolving option.

Here are the three most common tabletop display solutions our customers use to display their literature:

  1. Tabletop Carousel / Revolving Displays – Revolving displays look nice and allow you to hold a lot of material in a relatively small amount of space. Some of our carousel tabletop literature holders are made from PETG plastic, which is extremely durable and safe. Others are made from wood and metal. Racks range from pamphlet holders to magazine holders.
  2. Tabletop Business Card Holders – Business card holders look professional, are easy for customers to access and look far better than simply sitting a stack of cards on a desk. If you have a reception desk in a lobby, you can use a tabletop business card holder with multiple pockets for a variety of different people. We offer one model of desktop business card holder that has 12 different pockets!
  3. Tabletop Literature Racks – Tabletop brochure, pamphlet and magazine holders look great, take up little desk space and come in metal wire, plastic and wood designs. Some models, designed for larger tables, can hold a combination of brochures and magazines.

Our plastic display racks are made from durable PETG plastic, which is shatterproof and safe. Our metal racks are made from heavy-gauge wire, designed to stand the test of time and our wood display racks are available in a variety of different wood stain finishes.

These three categories cover all the most popular options for displaying literature from a desk or table. With literally dozens of different models available, we are sure to have something you will like. You can find our entire selection of display racks and literature holders here.

Metal, Wood or Plastic Display Racks?

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Metal Wire Wall Mounted Magazine HolderWhether you need a magazine, literature or brochure rack, you may be wondering if you should go with metal wire, wood or plastic. Each of these styles of racks looks great and each has their benefits. I am going to cover the pros and the cons for owning each one of these display racks.

Wooden Display Racks – Wood display racks and literature holders look great. The wood grain and color has a more traditional looks and fits in well in offices that have a more natural look and feel. Wooden display racks also blend in well with existing furniture.

You will find wooden display racks in doctor’s offices, school lobbies, waiting rooms and more. These racks come in freestanding, wall and desktop designs.

Metal Magazine Racks – Metal magazine racks are some of the most durable racks available and often find their place in retail environments. These racks come in revolving / rotating, wall mounted and desktop designs. You will also frequently find these in libraries and schools. They can be used to hold magazines, books, brochures and other literature.

Plastic Literature Racks – Plastic magazine and literature racks are extremely popular in offices, lobbies, waiting rooms and other locations that need to display magazines, brochures and other material. These racks are especially popular because they are affordable, make literature easy to read and are extremely easy to clean.

Plastic racks are commonly found in buildings with a lot of children. You can find these racks in desktop and wall-mounted designs. These racks developed a bad reputation years ago because they broke so easily. Materials used today are shatter proof, durable and safe (Acrylic & PETG Plastic).

The rack you choose to hold your literature will help mold the ambiance of your waiting room, lobby or store. You can find our entire selection of magazine and literature racks here.

Space-Saving Tips: Rotating Brochure Holders & Revolving Magazine Racks

Monday, December 13th, 2010

Revolving / Rotating Book Displays, Brochure Holders & Magazine RacksAre you looking for a way to get your literature maximum exposure while taking up as little space as possible? If this sounds like a situation similar to what you need, you may want to consider a revolving / rotating literature rack. This may be for books, brochures or magazines. Here are a few reasons why.

To begin with, revolving and rotating display racks have a very small footprint. They typically don’t take up more than 4 to 9 square feet of floor space. This is ideal for retail stores, libraries, comic book stores and others that need valuable floor space for other material and products.

The revolving design of a rotating literature rack allows a lot of material to be contained in a small space. Because the footprint is small, much of the display area is gained by height and rack design. A revolving rack makes it possible to see up to 3-4 times more material than a standard freestanding or wall-mounted rack.

Revolving brochure holders, magazine racks and book displays come in a variety of shapes and designs. This includes floor models and tabletop designs. Most revolving literature holders are made out of heavy-gauge wire, although some desktop models can be found made from plastic / acrylic. While most come in black, several are available in different color options.

Here are a few of our most popular revolving / rotating literature racks:

  1. R WIREworks 24PPCR Tabletop Revolving Book Display – Saves space and allows you to display books from a checkout counter or a table.
  2. R WIREworks 3284SR Revolving Book Display – Perfect for displaying books for retail sale.

Top Five Best Magazine Racks for a Doctor’s Office

Thursday, July 1st, 2010

Plastic Wall-Mounted Magazine RackMagazines are a great diversion for patients waiting to see the doctor. Magazines are often left on a table or desk, but they usually become cluttered and messy. A great way to offer your patients quality reading material is by using a magazine rack. Here are a few options you may want to consider.

To begin with, almost 90% of our customers who purchase magazine racks for a doctor’s office use wall-mounted magazine racks. This is because wall-mounted magazine racks are out of the way, take up little space and don’t get moved around or damaged. Wall mounted magazine racks come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Here are my top five best recommendations for a doctor’s office magazine rack:

  1. Plastic Wall Magazine Racks (found here) – Plastic wall magazine racks are especially popular with doctor’s offices because they are cheap, durable and make it easy for a patient to see the contents. They hold up well in lobbies and waiting rooms with a lot of children. These racks are also very easy to clean and maintain.
  2. Wooden Wall-Mounted Magazine RackWooden Wall Magazine Racks (found here) – Wooden magazine racks are very popular for use in lobbies and waiting rooms with existing wood furniture. Most wooden wall-mounted magazine racks are available in a variety of different wood stains. These racks often have a clear front, making it easy to see the contents.
  3. Corner Magazine Racks (found here) – These racks are ideal for use in lobbies where there is limited space. Most doctor’s office waiting rooms don’t make use of the corners, making corner magazine racks ideal.
  4. Tabletop Magazine Racks (found here) – These magazine racks sit on a table, counter, reception desk or other solid surface. They are convenient, easy to set up and can hold a wide variety of literature. Tabletop racks, however, usually don’t have the capacity of a wall-mounted rack.
  5. Free-Standing Magazine Racks (found here) – These racks are probably the least common racks found in a doctor’s office. They are often used to hold pamphlets and other medical literature and not for holding magazines (although magazine rack versions are available).

Make your doctor’s waiting room a pleasant place for your patients with one of our magazine racks. You can find our entire selection of magazine racks here.

Clear, Acrylic, Plastic or PETG Display Racks?

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

We get asked by many of our customers what the difference is between clear, acrylic, plastic and PETG display racks. These are a lot of the common “sales” terms floating around on the Internet. Many retailers use all these terms interchangeably and it can seem a little confusing a times. The simple answer is that they are all very similar if not the same thing.

Acrylic (Plexiglas) and PETG (glycol modified polyethylene terephthalate) display racks are both clear and are made from a type of plastic. Most display racks are now made from PETG. This is because PETG plastic is more durable, resists cracking / scratching and is safer.

All of our clear plastic display racks are made from PETG. Acrylic, although not used as much now, is still a perfectly acceptable term and we will certainly understand it if you call or e-mail us. PETG plastic is designed to be shatter proof and eliminate the jagged cracked edges that used to be commonplace in older plastic displays.

There are three major types of clear display racks. These are wall mounted, corner mounted and countertop designs. The wall-mounted models, as the name states, are mounted on the wall. These are probably the most common style of clear display rack. Corner mounted are used in tight spaces because they make use of the often forgotten corner. Countertop racks are usually free standing and sit on a table or counter.

You can find our entire selection of clear display, literature, pamphlet and magazine racks here.

Magazine & Display Racks – Plastic, Metal or Wood?

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Magazine racks and display racks come in all shapes and sizes. These range from floor standing to wall-hanging designs. Although these are available in different designs, they are also available in different materials. The most common materials used in building display racks are plastic, wood and metal.

The least common of the three is metal. This isn’t because they are ugly or don’t work, but most metal display racks are created in a wire design. These styles are commonly used for displaying books, DVDs and other material for resale. They are not as common for displaying magazine and brochures. The most common color for metal display racks is black, although some chrome designs are available. You can find our metal display racks here.

Plastic display racks are commonly found in office lobbies, grocery stores, churches and schools. They are good for use with multiple products and are especially popular due to the transparent properties of the plastic, which makes it easy to see material. Magazines are especially popular for use with plastic (acrylic) display and magazine racks. They come in wall mounted, corner and desktop designs. You can find our plastic magazine racks here.

Wood display racks and magazine racks fit in very well with an office environment. They look very professional and match well with existing furniture. You can find wood display racks in floor-standing, wall-mounted and countertop designs. Wood magazine racks fit in well with a lobby, waiting room, church foyer or business office. You can find our wood display racks here.

Some magazine racks are available in a combination of wood and plastic. Buy your display rack today by going here.
