  • Get Happy With Snap Frame Poster Holders

    Sales of snap frame poster holders are growing – and we take a look at the reasons for the growth in this feature.

    For the uninitiated, snap frames are photo or poster holders whose frame ‘snaps’ into place to hold the print. Usually an acrylic cover protects the print – but this is not compulsory. Buyers find snap frames are easy to use initially and then to update the image when required.  They are usually wall mounted using pre-drilled holes but freestanding snap frames and A-frame snap frames are also readily available.

     

    Why snap frames are on the up

    There are a number of reasons why snap frame poster holders continue to grow in popularity.

     

    Firstly, it is easy to buy high quality snap frames that will last. When buying, look out for frames manufactured from anodised aluminium. Using anodised aluminium adds to the strength and durability of the frame. Look out for a smooth shutting operation. If buying online look for a reputable retailer and check their Returns Policy and any product reviews.

     

    Snap frames are also very popular due to the wide range of colours that they are available in. Although silver snap frames have been considered the ‘classic’ look they can also be purchased in colours such as white, black, red, green & blue. This has meant they can be used in lots of interiors. Kids love the bright colours that look great in their bedroom, and retailers have been able to incorporate the colours in their displays.

     

    Another reason for the expanding sales is their sheer versatility. In homes, in offices, in shops and just about everywhere else snap frames offer a great way to display photos, posters and other print. Smarter looking than standard poster holders, and better value than traditional picture frames snap frames can be used in loads of locations. In standard sizes such as A4 snap frames and A3 snap frames, you can be sure that you’ll be able to find the perfect frame for your print.

     

    More reason to be snap frames happy

    A complete snap frames range might also include tamper resistant and lockable snap frames – ideal when security and peace of mind are important. And silver snap frame light boxes are ideal for retailers, hoteliers, salon owners etc etc – allowing them to create a stunning light-filled display that can be updated really easily. They incorporate high powered LED lighting and can run without servicing for 10,000 hours. For receptions areas, waiting room, exhibitions and trade shows floor standing snap frames are just the job.

     

    Who buys snap frames?

    Firstly, they are perfect for the home – a really smart way to display posters that you love and family photos you treasure. They are ideal for framing memories that last a lifetime – exam certificates, good news letters and newspaper articles. They are brilliant for kids’ bedrooms and playrooms – as one boy band fades away, their posters and pics are easily replaced by pictures of the very coolest new pop sensation.

     

    For businesses, snap frames are invaluable. They are a smart way to frame essential info such as insurance or professional certifications. They complement photos, posters and brand communications. They look brilliant in shops, build brand in cafes and coffee shops and add a smart touch to waiting rooms and reception areas. Exhibitions and trade shows also benefit from snap frames as they can be a durable and smart finishing touch to your exhibition space.

     

    Great value snap frames

    Another reason for their continuing popularity is their price; they have dropped in price as demand grows and competition keeps prices competitive. Beware of cheap imitations, though and look for high quality snap frames – they might be more expensive initially but will offer the best value over the long run.

    Great prices? Loads of colour and sizer options? Lots of uses? Great quality? What’s not to love about snap frames?

  • Why Slatwall is a smart choice for retailers

    Using Slatwall in our shop fitting services means that you pick up the keys to your new shop and realise that the shell has to be turned into a shop – and fast.

    Fitting the shop out has many possible solutions but Slatwall (or Slatfix or Groovewall) remains a popular display system choice for many good reasons – including the huge (and growing) range of Slatwall shelves and accessories that will enable you to display, promote, and sell a limitless range of products.

     

    Shop fitting services

    The shop fitting scheme that you choose will determine the potential retail space available within your store, as well as how it is laid out, how customers move within it and how products will be displayed and advertised to customers. The choice of design affects the entire interior of your store so it is important that you choose the right shop fittings company to execute your plans.

    Slatwall is a little like the ‘open source’ of shopfitting systems – there is a whole community of happy Slatwall users offering advice and inspiration and a whole range of specialists developing Slatwall shelves and display solutions that keep up to date with the latest products and consumer behaviour.

     

    What is a Slatwall?

    Slatwall is a type of shop fitting which uses thin panels (or slats) of wood or acrylic, each separated by a thin gap, to create a versatile, space-efficient and cost-effective display solution. Thanks to the gaps between the slats, it’s possible to attach shelving, hooks and other display accessories quickly and easily, sliding them in and changing them as necessary by sliding them out or lifting them free of the gap.

    Once fitted the Slatwall shelves and display products hold themselves in place by the force of gravity, and don’t require additional work to affix them. This makes Slatwall easy to use (no specialist installation is usually required after your initial fit-out), and makes Slatwall quick to use: it won’t take long to create an impactful display. Acrylic Slatwall shelves are incredible value for money – it is inexpensive to build up a sizeable collection of display items that means you can keep developing your shop display at very little cost. Maintaining customer interest in your display is important – and Slatwall allows you to this easily.

     

    Why Choose Slatwall for your shop fitting?

    Using Slatwall in our shop fitting services means that we can offer unmatched versatility, space efficiency and ease of use. With Slatwall there are no empty spaces and no space that cannot become invaluable retail display space. For retailers of all sizes and types, maximising the available display space is essential for profitability – and Slatwall helps you create a bespoke shopfitting that will achieve this and more.

     

    Can I add Slatwall Shelves

    As mentioned, the sheer range and cost-effectiveness of Slatwall shelves is another reason to opt for Slatwall display.  High quality acrylic shelves are made to be used in even the busiest retail environment and the range of sizes, shapes and styles is a real bonus for smart retailers looking to make the most of their current product range – and to add new products that grow in popularity.

  • Our #XmasJumperDay raises record amount for local charities.

    Our #XmasJumperDay raises record amount for local charities.

    On Wed 19th December many of the team at Wrights Plastics wore Xmas jumpers to help us raise money for two great local charities – and our total of £320 was our highest ever!

    The jumpers ranged from the stylish to the pretty gruesome but they were all worn in a good cause. Even those who couldn’t wear the jumpers for taste or H&S reasons made generous donations and of course there was lots of Xmas chocolate and cake to add to the fun.

    In an act of Xmas generosity, the amount collected by the staff was matched by Wrights Plastics  – helping us achieve our highest ever total.

    Both charities are close to our heart:

    Birmingham Dogs Home aim to “rescue, reunite and re-home the lost, abused and abandoned dogs from the streets of the West Midlands and South Staffordshire” and hope our donation will help them continue this work in 2019.

    St Basils works with young people aged 16-25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, helping over 5000 young people per year across the West Midlands region with specific services in Birmingham, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, the Wyre Forest and Coventry. This is the 2nd year we have supported the charity.

    Thankfully the jumpers, hats and t-shirts can be put in the bottom drawer for another 12 months.

  • Sarah’s 25 years with Wrights Plastics

    Sarah celebrates 25 years with Wrights PlasticsWrights Plastics were delighted recently to recognise the long and outstanding service of accounts all-rounder Sarah Norton.

    Sarah joined Wrights Plastics in May 1990 and has seen the company develop over her 25 years (so far) with us. Not only has she seen us move from Willenhall where she started with us to larger premises in West Bromwich in 1997 she has also witnessed growth that has seen the company double in size since she started.

    The omens were always good, Sarah believes. When she was told she was being made redundant on Tues, her first boss suggested she speak to the company who had relocated into premises where she originally worked. Interviewed on Thurs, she started work the very next day – back where she started her working life and with a company she would be with for the next quarter of a century.

    When she joined the company was smaller and Sarah sometimes misses the job roles were more flexible. “In some ways, I miss the closeness of the early days as many of the team got involved in many different areas of the business and everyone knew everyone else. But the growth has been brilliant. The company’s financial stability has ensured it survived recessions and downturns – and I hope I have contributed to that.” When she started Sarah had sole responsibility for day-to-day financial aspects at Wrights Plastics as invoicing, purchase ledger and wages. Today she oversees a team of four.

    When Sarah and husband Rob decided to start a family, there was no-one who could replace Sarah so we set up a computer and phone at her home so she could continue to work for us – no long maternity leave for her. But she has also benefitted from the flexibility the company is able to offer – allowing her to continue with her career while also raising a family. “Wrights Plastics remains a family run business and I think that means they understand the importance of family perhaps more than other organisations.”

    As recognition of her 25 year service, the company presented her with a travel voucher and for Sarah the timing was perfect as it allowed her family to fulfil a long-planned trip to Dubai. Sarah explains “Our son Sean wanted to go to Dubai for his 18th and by the time our plans came together I had received this holiday voucher from the company. It meant the whole family could enjoy a very special time together. In fact, we’d love to go again.”

    Wrights Plastics MD Mike Wright said “Amazingly, Sarah has worked with three generations of our family. She has shown dedication and commitment to the business and we were so pleased that our recognition of her long service meant the whole family could enjoy an unforgettable time together.”
