Ideas for Kids’ Craft Projects Using Clear Acrylic Photo Frames

Posted on

Clear plastic picture frames are a great item to use for crafts for children in preschool,  kindergarten, or daycare centers.  Even children of ages up to 10 or 11 years old can really get involved in a fun craft project using acrylic picture frames.

Craft Project for Kids Using Picture Frames

Decorating picture frames is not a new idea however making these clear acrylic picture frames into fun 3 dimensional keepsakes is a great way to keep the kids busy and to send them home with something their parents can really appreciate and treasure forever.

Today those flat paper projects just don’t get displayed on the refrigerator doors as before because so many people have stainless steel refrigerators these days.

Acrylic photo holders, which are also referred to as sign holders, come in various sizes: 5 x 7 and 8-1/2 x 11 are the most popular sizes. These clear plastic picture frames stand on their own on a shelf or tabletop. Because of our low wholesale price this is a very fun and affordable project to do with children.

Buy Wholesale for a Cheap Yet Memorable Activity and Keepsake

Similar acrylic frames retail for approximately triple the price at major retail office supply and craft stores. Our low minimum order makes it so you can buy just what you need for your classroom or group.

In this video observe how we incorporated child-safe glue stick, macaroni, pipe cleaners, craft pom poms, and water colors paints to make a fun activity. These are a 3 dimensional memorable keepsake children and their parents will treasure forever.

Installing Peel & Stick Tile Over Old Tile Floor

Wholesale Peel & Stick  Floor Tiles

This is a video contributed by a repeat customer.

People often ask us if they can lay our self-stick vinyl tile on top of their old linoleum or tile floor.

I always tell people that the manufacturer does not recommend it.  However, we have seen many successful installations.  Since Marty has done this before and he’s come back for more, this is the perfect case study.

Marty works in a manufacturing plant with several offices. He installed our black and white tile in a checkerboard pattern on top of 30-year old vinyl tile.

His company recently acquired 2 more offices in the same building and Marty was put to the task of installing new tile in these old restrooms too.

When placing the order on the phone, Marty was telling me how great his first experience was with our peel & stick tile. Then he offered to take video.

I said, “Marty, no one can help us sell tile better than our satisfied customers. If you will take video and share it with our future prospective customers, that would be fantastic!”

Marty does a great job showing and telling so….take it away, Marty! And thank you.

Garage Floor Tile Installation

Thank you for sharing, Ruben B from the great state of Georgia.

Black and White Pattern Tile for Cement Garage Floor

Ruben called to ask how I think our tile would work out on his garage floor in Georgia.  He explained that his floor was in very good condition and that he was in preparations to making his new “Man Cave”.  I directed him to check out my video because I’d installed the tile in my garage a few years back on a floor which was much older and a little bit grimy with ground-in dirt and oil stains.

People always want to get information about the product but no one can tell the story like satisfied customers. Ruben placed the order and a few days later generously supplied us with these photos of his garage floor tile project in-progress.

In an email, Ruben described his experience with the installation and suggested a product called Henry’s Bond Enhancer (sold at most any major hardware store or flooring retailer).  The bond enhancer is not an adhesive but rather provides a chemical substrate which seals the porous concrete to establish a better bond between the adhesive-backed tile and the cement.  I have never used this product but I’ve had other customers who also recommend it.  It surely can’t hurt.

Ruben adds one more tip: “When making a man cave, do NOT show your wife the floor until AFTER you put all your stuff back in the room because if she sees it empty, she’s gonna have a whole mess of new ideas for your space.”

Thanks again for sharing, Ruben.  Please keep in touch and don’t forget to tell your friends where you got a great deal on a great floor!



Installing Vinyl Peel & Stick Tile on Wood Stairs

Posted on

We get such wonderful feedback from the women who purchase and install our vinyl self adhesive tile.  This project is contributed by Linda W. of Pennsylvania.  Linda is one of our resellers and she’s also very experienced installer having done many of the rooms in her home.  Most recently this project in her basement which was necessitated by a flood.

We invite everyone to to share their stories and pictures of their flooring project.  This contribution demonstrates

Wood-Look, Self-Adhesive Vinyl Floor Planks on Staircase Installation

These floor planks measure 6″ wide and 36″ long.  In this installation, Linda’s stairs were exactly 36″ wide (as is often the case) so she had a perfect fit-no cutting required.

Planks are laid next to each other to fill each step and she used a strip of brass stair nosing to finish off the nose of the step.  What a great job!

Linda has also used our 12 x 12 vinyl tiles to cover other areas in her home.  Thank you, Linda….for sharing your story and photos with us.

Black and White Checkerboard Pattern Tile for Garage Floor

black and white checkerboard tile
This image was shared by a satisfied customer. Our tile can even make a shabby old car like this look good!

When people began to discover our low-priced solid black and solid white floor tile on our website about 5 years ago, we started getting calls from all over the country from consumers.

One of the most frequently asked questions was, “I want to put make a black and white checkerboard pattern with your floor tile.  Can it be used on a cement floor in my garage?”

One of my employees had previously installed the tile in an area of our warehouse on bare cement floor.  The floor there was about 100 years old.  It was smooth but the dirt was ground in deep.  My employee scrubbed the floor with a brush then mopped it which took off the surface dirt.  The tile installed in a couple hours and the job has lasted for years.  No problems whatsoever.

My Philadelphia warehouse is hot in the summer and cold in the winter, so I knew it would closely simulate any typical garage climate.  It was a good example I could speak of from experience, but it wasn’t a garage.

I decided to install the tile myself in my own garage just to make sure and I made a video of it.(see below)  I did this for 3 reasons.

  1. I wanted to show that I would use the tile in my own garage.
  2. I wanted to show how it looks in a garage (it looks great).
  3. I am not a handy person.  I sell the stuff but I’m not the kind of guy who gets into home projects and I wanted to demonstrate just how easy it is to install this peel & stick floor tile.

The installation was easy.  It looks great and as of this post, the tile is firmly in place for over 3 years.

Full disclosure: I do not park my car in my garage.  I do believe that the tile is so firmly in place, it would hold up to a parked car.  I also can tell you that we have sold our tile to dozens of customers over the years who have used the tile for this purpose and we have never had any complaints come back about the tile failing.

Although this tile is not rated nor is warranted for such use, I stand firm that this product consistently outperforms expectations and I sell it with confidence.
