Do You Know the Difference Between Inlaid and Printed Logos on Commercial Door Mats?

One of the many decisions you must make when investing in commercial door mats with your logo added on, is whether or not you should purchase inlaid or printed mats. All of the logo mats at Source Floor are inlaid, which is the more durable choice. Here’s what you need to know.

What Are Printed Floor Mats?

Printed floor mats refer to any type of commercial or industrial mat in which a logo or design is printed on top of a preexisting mat. While printed mats look stunning, the printed design often begins to wear or fade before the mat itself degrades. It can even smudge in high temperatures. In other words, you may find yourself stuck between keeping a mat with worn letters and design elements, or replacing the mat even though it is still providing the comfort and traction you require.

What Are Inlaid Floor Mats?

An inlaid floor mat may not look visibly different from a printed mat, but the technology is far more advanced. Your inlaid mat is designed from scratch. Each and every piece of your design is computer cut in the precise color of matting required to achieve your design. Your logo is hand-inlaid, and chemically welded to the base. The remainder of your mat is seamlessly inlaid around your logo in your preferred neutral or contrasting color. This ensures strength and durability and even wear, and eliminates the worry of your design smudging, fading, or wearing out before the matting degrades.

The Quality Of Your Mat Matters Too

Now that you understand the difference between commercial door mats with your logo inlaid, you must also consider the quality of the mat you select.

Be Strategic When Ordering Your Mats

One of the most popular spots to place your mats is before or after your single and double doors, but that certainly isn’t your only option. Also consider placing mats:

  • At your cash register or point of sales.
  • In front of your elevators.
  • At the entrance of your internal office door.
  • Anywhere your employees or customers will stand for long periods of time.
  • In areas of high traffic as a method of minimizing the wear on your flooring.
  • In front of or throughout your pop-up shop or convention display.
  • In strategic indoor and outdoor locations as a method of guiding traffic, creating a focal point, or complementing your design.
