Selecting the Right Personalized Mat for Your Facility

Material Matters

Personalized welcome mats can be made for indoor or outdoor settings. Most of the indoor custom mats are made with nylon or polyester fiber.  Outdoor rugs are made with polypropylene fibers. Check out our custom indoor logo mats, including Digiprint HD and Prestige Style.  We make outdoor custom mats with the Waterhog style and Piazza mats.

Size and Placement

Consider the size of your entrance and where the custom mat will be placed—indoors or outdoors. A larger mat can be more welcoming.  Be careful not to use a too small mat at your door.  It will look like a postage stamp.

Design and Personalization

  • Text and Fonts: Choose a font that complements your home or business exterior. Keep the text simple for better readability.  Do not use small fonts; they don’t show well on pile-type rugs.
  • Graphics and Colors: Select graphics that match your home or business aesthetic. Opt for colors that stand out yet harmonize with your doorway.

Maintenance and Care Tips

Regular Cleaning

For outdoor-style mats like Waterhog and Piazza, vacuum, sweep, or spray with a garden hose to clean the Waterhog mat. You can also dry it with a damp cloth or shake it vigorously to remove surface grime.
The indoor mats, such as the Digiprint and Prestige mats, can be put in the washing machine if they’re small enough, steam cleaned, spot cleaned, and swept to keep them looking new. These custom mats are easy to care for and help keep your entry clean.

Custom personalized welcome mats also help keep your establishment clean and secure. A Carpet & Rug Institute study found that door mats trap up to 80 percent of moisture and grime that would otherwise seep into a building.

Weather Considerations

Over one million people in the US suffer from slip and fall accidents annually. These staggering numbers can be significantly reduced by investing in personalized welcome mats, which increase traction between feet and floor. The custom floor mats also reduce impact in case of a fall, reducing the possibility of serious injuries.  consider using the Two Mat system to keep your home or facility clean.

These custom doormats keep your entrance clean and warmly greet your guests, reflecting your personality and hospitality. When selecting a custom mat, consider material, size, design, and maintenance to ensure it serves your home well for years.
