How a Custom Mat Can Kick Off the Holiday Spirit

by Chris Martin on November 27, 2013

The holidays are a special time of year. Because so many people are in good spirits, it’s wise for businesses to get into the swing of things and join in the good cheer. This helps them cement their ties to the community and contribute to an atmosphere of fun and merriment.

But what’s the best way to get into the holiday spirit? String hundreds of colored lights everywhere? Blare holiday tunes at full volume? Have employees dress up in Santa Claus and elf suits?

Perhaps the best way to strike a balance between festive and tasteful is by erring on the side of subtle – say, by proudly displaying a custom holiday-themed custom mat outside a business door or on the interior floor space.

Designing a Custom Holiday Mat

There are plenty of approaches to take when ordering your very own custom holiday mat. You can simply place a familiar holiday image on the mat (like a holiday wreath, a Christmas tree, or a Hanukkah menorah). You can adorn the mat with your holiday slogan of choice (Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or ‘Tis the Season). If you want to get creative, you can print your business name or logo in a holiday theme, either combining it with a holiday image or slogan or otherwise distinguishing it as a holiday mat (the business name written in Christmas lights, wrapped in holly leaves, etc.).

Advantages of a Custom Holiday Mat

A holiday mat is especially useful if your business is located in an office complex or shopping center which has stringent rules on holiday adornments. Whereas overly-ostentatious displays like lights, faux snow, or Christmas trees might be discouraged, a custom holiday mat is aesthetically-appropriate while still communicating the message of tidings of comfort and joy. Similarly, if the interior of your office prevents you from constructing elaborate holiday displays because of a lack of space or practicality, you might be better served by laying the custom holiday mat down to show your devotion to the season.

Another advantage to utilizing a custom holiday mat is its storage-friendliness. This type of accoutrements will take up much less space in a closet or storeroom than an artificial Christmas tree, a stand-up holiday display, or even ornaments and Christmas lights. After all, you don’t want to be tripping over your holiday decorations during the other 11 months of the year, right?

Get Into the Holiday Spirit!

Most importantly, displaying a custom holiday mat sort of makes you “scrooge-proof” — in other words, it allows you to demonstrate that you embrace the joyful time of year along with the rest of the world. This display allows you to bond with your customers, which in turn helps bolster your image within the community. And when customers make a personal connection with businesses, they are much more likely to patronize that enterprise (or increase how much they purchase from it).
