Bulletin Sign Holder
BULLETIN SIGN HOLDER
A bulletin sign holder in the workspace comes in many sizes and shapes that include an angled sign holder for single side viewing, a vertical sign holder and an open top sign holder made from plexiglass or acrylic, a suction cup sign holder, a floorstanding sign holder, a wall mounted sign holder, sign holders with pocket, and a snap framed sign holder.
Using bulletin boards within the workspace is one aspect of the workplace communication tools, methods and techniques approach for increasing productivity levels and helping the company run smoother. Workplace bulletin board ideas from each member of the staff will make for a happier working environment. It is always nice to know that your input is appreciated. Communication board ideas can flow more freely.
The staff can have fun with different bulletin board themes:
Garage Sale Day
This board would be for everyone that has something they no longer use but would like to sell it. You would line the border with "for sale" yard signs. Everyone that would want to sell their item would need to post a printed photo or actual photo with their first name as seller, info on the product as well as what shape it is in and how much they want for it. This is much safer than online classifieds and Craig's List. There needs to be a list by teach product, where any person interested can leave their full name so the seller can go see them during lunch, break, before or after work. The seller needs to remove the item from the board once it is sold. Let everyone know that if they do not see the item on the board, it is sold.
Red would be a good background since it promotes energy. Show groups of teams that inspire and really make things work when they pull together. This would mean posting pictures of NFL teams (high-fives, scoring a touchdown and other positive moments), MLB teams, Olympians, etc. Then post a message like, ‘what we can accomplish if we work as a team?' or something to that nature. If you want to go the extra mile on this one, you can take new or old group photos of the workplace and put them on the board as well.
Are You Smarter Than a 5th-6th-7th-8th Grader?
Of course, the background should be black or green to resemble a chalkboard. For fun title the bulletin board with the "Are You Smarter Than a..." Underneath the title, put up 4 big cut-out blocks of paper. On the first block write big and bold "5th" (with "grader" a little smaller underneath the number); on the second block write "6th" (with "grader" a little smaller underneath the number), etc. Next, take 4 whole sheets of colored construction paper or something similar and colorful, and fold them in half. On the outside you will put the question (which will require a little internet search to find 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade test questions) then on the inside under the question flap, put the answer. For fun cut out ABC blocks and 1+2=3 simple math problems for the border.
Black or another dark color would be good for the background and contrasting with the white. Cut out of magazines or print out from free sites online pictures of popular stars, current and past. Cut white paper into bubbles that you see when comic strip characters talk. Find some good, interesting or crazy quotes and write them in the bubbles. Make sure to put a hyphen after the quote in the bubble and give the quote proper credit to the star. An example would be "Blah, Blah"- Mick Jagger. You could just put up a solid color border and add a few star shapes from construction paper that you have added glitter to. Put a title at the top such as "Famous Quotes" to promote the theme.
Use a bright colored background that gives a warm feeling. Cut out some magazine pictures for the bulletin sign holder of star couples or singles that have done charity work or even given money to good causes. The more they got their hands dirty and really worked the better. Then, post large construction paper hearts beside each photo. Write on the heart their contribution to society or planet earth. A good example would be Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt that went out of their way to help needy children, or even Microsoft guru, Bill Gates, who gives a large part of his fortune to charity. Put a title at the top of the board like "Real Stars" to promote your theme.
These Books Rock!
Ask people to bring their favorite books that they are passionate about to work and photo copy the covers. Place these in a bulletin sign holder. If they are on a Kindle or Nook book, you may have to print the cover art out online. If there are too many people in the office, pull the top 10 books online and there will be different categories also. It will be much easier if people can bring their favorite books, because then you can have them write a review on an index/note card without revealing the ending. Next, post the review beside the book cover and give people a chance to see what they may be missing. Cut reading glasses and generic book shapes out of construction paper for the border. Put "These Books Rock!" for the title at the top of the bulletin board. People can sign their first name only to the review if they wish. Think privacy! We don't want someone going to the reviewer and saying "your book sucks" or anything negative like that!
