We offer a great selection of multi-pocket brochure holders (found here). This includes plastic, acrylic, metal and wood brochure holders. So which should you use? Here are a few models that have proven to be best sellers over the years.

I would like to start off by saying there are several types of brochure holders. While I am going to list of 5 bestsellers, we offer literally dozens of other models that are just as solid and well priced. Keep in mind that brochure holders come in desktop, floor and  wall-mounted configurations and are made from a wide variety of materials. Some brochure holders are multi-purpose, capable of holding magazines and other literature as well. I am going to focus on holders that are designed specifically for brochures only.

Eight Great Outdoor Trash Cans & Garbage Bins

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Outdoor Trash CansWhile you definitely want the inside of your office building looking good, it is also a good idea to promote a clean outdoor entrance as well. One great way to do this is by using an outdoor trash can. These waste bins are designed to stay put, look good and withstand the elements. Many of these outdoor waste bins look great, add to the overall building decor and even include ash collectors for smokers.

There are three types of outdoor trash cans that are especially popular. This includes metallic trash cans, neutral waste bins (brown or black) and natural garbage bins that usually feature organic elements such as stone or rock patterns. The can you use will depend a lot on the outdoor landscaping and the architectural design of the building.

An outdoor trash can should be durable and solid. You don’t want something that is top heavy or features a small base. Remember, these garbage cans will be impacted by the elements, animals and even some people. A garbage can or bin that can be blown over by the wind doesn’t deserve to be outside. A tipped over garbage can creates a mess and can be environmentally damaging. An outdoor garbage can should also be covered, preventing rain from pooling in the bottom.

At ABC Office, we offer several great options for outdoor trash cans. Here are 2 types of outdoor garbage bins that have become classics with our customers, totaling 8 different models.

Outdoor Garbage BinsBest Outdoor Trash Cans:

Canmeleon Outdoor Trash Can – This line of trash cans (4 different versions) feature a fluted panel design that, which has a highly professional appearance. These trash cans are molded from high-density polyethylene as well as UV inhibitors for optimal outdoor use. The design of these trash cans hides the bag. The Canmeleon line of garbage cans are some of the most popular available and we can ship these cans to you in a matter of days. Place 1 or 2 outside the entrance of your building.

Canmeleon Stone Outdoor Garbage Bin – The Canmeleon Aggregate Panel outdoor garbage bins (4 different versions) are extremely durable and feature a design that blends in with the natural environment. The molded-in stone aggregate looks classy and is especially nice in front of buildings with a stone or concrete design. The telescoping base helps hide the contained back. The recessed bottom looks great, yet does not detract from the stability of the bin.

Both of these options are reliable, high-quality options for your building. Both of these lines of outdoor trash cans are Greenguard certified. You won’t be disappointed.

Reviewed: Straighten Up! Literature Display Inserts for Magazines

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Safco StraightenUp! Magazine & Literature Rack InsertsDo you have a magazine display rack or holder, but can’t seem to keep the magazines standing up straight? This poses many problems. For one, your customers can’t see the displayed magazines and second, magazines could potentially fall onto the floor and become ruined. There is a very simply, quick and affordable fix for this problem.

To begin with, many magazines simply do not have the ability to support their own weight when positioned on end, especially at an angle. They begin to curl and flop over. This is also a problem when only a few magazines remain in a single pocket. There is one quick way to remedy this situation. Try using our StraightenUp! display inserts from Safco (found here). I’ll explain how these work.

StraightenUp! literature display inserts, unlike many cheaper alternatives, actually slide in behind the magazines, keeping magazines and literature in an upright position. Because they fit in behind the magazines, the actually don’t obstruct any visible material.  The spring-like design of the StraightenUp! insert works even when there is just one magazine left in a pocket.

These inserts are made out of plastic and are 100% GREENGUARD certified by the GREENGUARD Environmental Institute (GEI). This means they are both safe for human use and are safe for the environment.

The StraightenUp! literature inserts measure in at 8 ½” W x ¼” D x 10 ½” H. They can be inserted into most letter-size or magazine-size literature display pockets. This includes wood, plastic and wire magazine displays and holders.

We sell a lot of these inserts and I have to say that our customers are always happy with the results. If you have problems keeping your magazines standing up, you should definitely give these a try.

Top 3 Best Collapsible & Foldable Platform Trucks

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

Safco Collapsible / Foldable Platform TrucksPlatform trucks are extremely useful to have on hand in a warehouse. They can be used to haul equipment, boxes and more. One big problem I have found with many platform trucks is that they can be bulky and get in the way. One solution to this is to use a collapsible platform truck.

Collapsible platform trucks allow the operator to take the handle and fold them down so that they’re level with the bed of the platform truck. This makes them easy to store, slide under workbenches and more. At ABC Office we offer several different foldaway-style platform trucks from Safco. Here are three of the most popular models.

Top 3 Best Collapsible & Foldable Platform Trucks:

  1. Safco FoldAway Platform Truck – This platform truck has a very traditional look to it, yet still features a folding handle, making it easy to store.
  2. Safco HideAway Convertible Hand Truck – This truck can adapt from a hand truck to a platform truck. It also features several other configurations. This is a great all-round platform truck to have on hand.
  3. Safco Stow Away Platform Truck – This handy platform truck is one of the heaviest-duty models around, capable of holding up to 1,000 pounds of material. The handle folds down for easy storage.

So there you have it. Three solid, compact and reliable platform trucks. We have been selling Safco brand hand trucks and platform trucks for years now and they have a great track record with our customers. You can find our entire selection of hand trucks and platform trucks here.

Keep The Office Clean – Trash Cans & Wastebaskets

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Safco Canmeleon Outdoor Trash CansOften times the simplest things can make work so much better. This may be the way an office looks or how it is used. One thing I recommend doing is using a stylish trash can. This may sound a little silly up front, but the environment an individual works in often affects efficiency, moral and energy.

The type of wastebasket you use depends on the profession, business and architecture of the building. Just as clothing needs to match, so does office furniture. At ABC Office we offer a few different options for disposing of trash. This includes indoor and outdoor trash cans.

One of the most popular indoor office wastebaskets we offer is the Onyx mesh-style trash can. This type of wastebasket features a crisscross netting of metal that blends in nicely with existing furniture, especially with wooden and dark furniture. You can find our Onyx mesh office trash can here.

A popular option for use outdoors is our Safco Canmeleon outdoor trash can. With a recessed panel design, and four designs to choose from, these cans are often placed at building entrances or in busy lobbies. Aside from looks, these trash cans are especially popular due to their durable design that can take a beating and still look great. You can find our Safco Canmeleon outdoor trash cans here.

A third popular option is our recycling bins. With people more environmentally conscious, many businesses, schools and organizations want to recycle bottles, paper and aluminum cans. This is made easier, and much more convenient, by using a recycling bin. We offer several different recycling bin options. You can find our recycling bins here.

Whether you need a wastebasket, are building a new office or simply need a replacement, you should stop by our site and take a look at our entire selection of trash cans found here.
