Social Media Photo Booth

We wanted to hire a photo booth for our summer party but we wanted to have the ability to upload the pictures to social media.  So we did a search online for social media photo booth and were surprised to find that most photo booth companies don’t offer the service.

But we did find a couple and after comparing the offerings made our choice.  So the party was a huge success and the photo booth was a blast and everyone really enjoyed uploading their pictures to Facebook, emailing them and of course they enjoyed the prints too.

Glass Cubicles Rock

Used glass cubiclesWent to see a friend at work the other day and met him at his “desk” which was actually a cubicle but this was not your average cubicle, it was a floor to ceiling glass cubicle.  My impressions of cubicles had always been the dull, cookie cutter type you would expect to see side by side in the hundreds covering an entire floor.  This cubicle and the rest around him made the entire floor look almost futuristic.  I wanted to say beam me up Scotty, really.

It is easy to understand why this new model of cubicles is popular.  Using glass cubicles not only provides a more aesthetic look but allows for greater lighting and easier visual communication.  I guess the days of the humdrum cubicle are numbered.

Used Office Furniture Garland, TX

Used Office Furniture Garland TXWe moved our offices to the city of Garland, Texas and with the addition of several new employees we had a need for office furniture.  Have you taken a look at the cost of new office furniture lately?  Well a friend suggested we look at used office furniture and after a quick online search we found a great Garland used office furniture store within a few blocks of our new digs and gave them a call.

We were in need of a conference table, a couple of reception area chairs, a break room table, some cubicles and office chairs so our list wasn’t giant but not small either and surprisingly the fine folks at Continental Office Group were able to fill every request along with some service needs like installing the cubicles and moving our office furniture.  As you can tell, they have practically become a one-stop shop for all of our office needs.

Photo Booth DFW

I was at a wedding not too long ago and spent most of my time in the photo booth.  Sure I had some dinner and a couple of beers but mostly I was dressed in crazy hats, glasses, boas and yes even a tiara or two.  Why?  Because it was just dang fun!  Photo booth rentals Dallas is the way to go.

Dallas Recording Studio

Legal Audio EnhancementI had a need to transfer a bunch of cassette and vinyl records to digital tracks.  A quick search found a cool little recording studio in Dallas called Orb Audio Recorder.  I called the owner, Bobby Hoke, and got his pricing (very reasonable) and set a time to drop off my recordings.  It took about a week (a few days faster than he estimated) and I couldn’t be happier!  Great work, reasonable price and absolutely no problems.   I would highly recommend Orb Audio Recorder to anyone.

Downsizing a company isn’t all about getting rid of employees.

Downsizing is a word that has been used frequently during this long recession. Typically you hear it in business but these days it’s not uncommon to hear it from ordinary families. When a company decides to downsize the first thing that most people probably think about is how many people will lose their jobs. But with every employee there is probably a desk, a chair, maybe even an office full of furniture. So what happens to the office furniture when the office is downsized?

Used Office Furniture - Continental Office GroupUnless a company decides to store their unused furniture or move it to another office location for use there really the only viable option is to sell it. Now the chances they will sell it to the public is rare at best instead what a company normally does is engage with a reseller who deals in office furniture. These resellers try to get the biggest bang for the buck by offering pennies on the dollar and depending on how desperate the company is they may just get it. Once the sale is completed the reseller will clean, repair and restore the inventory and then offer it for resale. The easiest way for them to do so these days is online through various channels including Craigslist, their own website via advertising on search engines, directories and via lead generation websites. A majority of used office furniture dealers do most of their business online and that environment is changing daily with the increase in popularity of mobile and the melding of television and the internet.

To find a used furniture dealer is as simple as doing a Google search. In my case I would use the term used office furniture dallas to begin my search. From there I would want to find a website that shows what is available and when I can get it. I probably wouldn’t buy online as I would want to inspect the piece before I bought it but I expect that online buying is not far away for many of these dealers.

Make sure you check references, the Better Business Bureau and online reviews so you are comfortable dealing with them and double check their return policy as you never no what might happen.

While businesses continue to downsize and will do so even when the economy picks up, what may be unfortunate for the employees can many times be good fortune for those looking for a quality piece of used office furniture.
