At Soapbox, we work with all sorts of companies from across many different sectors. Recently, though, we completed a project for a very special client indeed- the Citizens Advice Bureau. They do extremely important work helping those in need, so we’re proud to have supported them in launching their new office in Maryhill. More than just standard print work, we played an integral part in opening their office- by providing them with eight of our awesome fabric booths!
These fabric booths are a great way of splitting up a larger space into smaller sections, which is essential at the CAB. They have all sorts of people coming through their doors, all wanting to discuss their issues privately. Instead of having to restructure their new office by building individual rooms, fabric booths allow the CAB to keep things nice and simple. As Sarah Erskine, their CEO, says, “The booths are amazing, much more affordable for our charitable organisation, fully branded with customisable design inside and out, and flexible and spacious in our new, large open plan offices.” Not only does it give them the sort of office space that their organisation needs, but they also let the Citizens Advice Bureau keep their branding front and centre.
You might be surprised at just how private these spaces actually are- one visitor to the Glasgow North West CAB had this to say about them:
“The booths are fantastic, and I felt much more at ease and able to bring a companion with me when seeking advice for support as they’re so spacious. The booth was very well kitted out, and I felt more at ease, making me feel more relaxed and able to talk to the adviser. I also felt the booths are very private, and when sitting down no one can see in that it’s me and I cannot make out words coming from the booths beside me either.”
Not only is this a huge advantage for the Citizens Advice Bureau, but it also makes our fabric booths a great choice for virtually any office space, too. Whether your staff regularly meet with members of the public and require some privacy, or simply need a place they can hide away in to hunker down with their work, the booths let you make much more efficient use of the space in your business.
We’re delighted to say that the launch event- hosted by local MSP Bob Doris- was a huge success. The new CAB office has benefitted massively from their new booths, and people who access their services love them, too. Another visitor said, “The booths are very bright and nice, and I love the CAB logo and the quotes from other people that have come into use CAB for advice!” More than just being functional, the fabric booths play a vital role in the entire visitor experience- making people feel more welcome when they pop in to see an advisor.
Of course, the Citizens Advice Bureau is a particularly customer-facing organisation- at the end of the day, their job is to speak to people who walk through their doors. However, virtually every business can benefit from the warmth and friendliness that comes with from a fabric booth. In fact, we even use one ourselves in our Eglinton Street store, since it lets us take customers away from the hustle and bustle of the printing works to chat with them in more relaxed surroundings. Rather than adding a new room to your office, fabric booths create an oasis of calm in the midst of even the most hectic of businesses. That makes them an excellent choice for new companies who want to put their unique stamp on their premises, but don’t have a massive amount of money to spend on renovation. In just minutes, even an empty room will suddenly be filled with fantastic designs- and you’ll have all the space you need to get to work, too!
Our fabric booths are an excellent choice for exhibitions, too. They’re so simple to put up, as the frame can be assembled in just ten minutes. With that done, all you need to do is slip the canvas cover over and zip it up- and you’re ready to go! You could save a fortune in the long run, since you can simply hire the exhibition space instead of an expensive stand. When you’re done, just pack the booth away, take it back to the office, and pop it up again. The only limit to how you can use them is your imagination, making booths an incredibly flexible and cost-effective solution.
What’s more, having your own fabric booth is a much more eye-catching option. As we’ve already seen with the Citizens Advice Bureau, the booths are completely customizable, and we’ll come up with a design that gets your brand identity across perfectly. Don’t fade into the background at exhibitions- instead, let our booths help you to truly stand out from the crowd!
These fabric booths go above and beyond anything you’ve seen before. Using the very latest printing technology, we can create booths that are incredibly high-resolution. Say goodbye to blurry or stretched images, and hello to pixel-perfect clarity across even the largest fabric booths. They come in a whole range of sizes, too, so whether you want to make a big impression, or make the most of a small space, we’ve got the ideal solution for you.
Our fabric products aren’t just limited to booths, either. We also offer a wide range of other great solutions, all printed to the same outstanding quality. From advertising banners to table covers, and even footstools and beanbags, we’ll gladly splash your brand over any free surface you can think of. That way, your identity will always be front and centre- and you’ll get plenty of practical use out of all these products, too!
So, whether you’re looking for a way of making a big impression at a trade event or want a more intimate space to retreat to within your office, a fabric booth could be just what you’re looking for. They are an incredibly flexible solution, so you’re sure to get plenty of use out of your new booth however you choose to use it. Best of all, as design experts, we can create booths that will really wow your customers. From backdrops of cityscapes or sedate stately homes to putting your company logo front and centre, we can provide exactly what you are looking for. As Sarah Erskine from the CAB said herself, “I am delighted with the booths and would recommend them to anyone looking for break-out rooms for staff, meeting spaces, or places to see the general public in privately in any open plan office environment. The service from Soapbox Design was second to none.” Get in touch today, and see for yourself why the Citizens Advice Bureau were so delighted with our services!
