VM-SHELF™ and VM-DRYerase™ MNW Win 2015 SGIA Product of the Year Awards

Press Release from Visual Magnetics

Atlanta, GA, November 5, 2015 - Visual Magnetics has been honored with its ninth award in eight years at the SGIA Expo, winning two prestigious SGIA Product of the Year Awards for its innovative magnetic receptive products. Yesterday, VM-SHELF and VM-DRYerase MNW were both honored at the country’s leading print and graphics event.

VM-SHELF™, Visual Magnetics’ modular magnetic shelving system, won in the Finishing – Display Exhibit Hardware Category. This product’s ability to simplify merchandise displays in retail settings like footwear and athletics stores, and its ease of application made it unique compared to other fixture and display offerings at the competition. The innovative magnetic shelf is easy to apply, reposition and remove by store-level staff without the need for tools, adhesives or hardware, and can be skinned with printed MagnaMedia® magnetic receptive graphic overlays. VM-SHELF is completely unique and a first-of-its kind magnetic application that allows quick and easy design transformation, minimizing costly and time-consuming installations of shelving systems as stores change out campaigns.

Used primarily for dynamic ideation surfaces, Visual Magnetics® VM-DRYerase™ MNW is a white, 30-mil UV printable magnetic receptive dry erase film with a non-ghosting surface for use with dry erase markers. VM-DRYerase MNW – which won in the Films Category of the awards – has a non-woven backing accepts most wallpaper pastes or adhesives for application to a wall or board. A Micro-Iron™ layer in the material attracts magnets and allows users to pin up notes, blueprints, plans and more. Architects, designers, creatives, educational spaces, offices and hospitals, all use VM-DRYerase™ MNW in their spaces for brainstorming, note taking and organizing ideas, since this material increases productivity more than a traditional dry erase thanks to its printable, magnetic qualities.

"We would like to thank the awards committee at SGIA for continuing to recognize the innovation in our products," says Joe Deetz, CEO and President of Visual Magnetics. "Both VM-SHELF and VM-DRYerase MNW are game-changers that save time and help spur creativity in their respective environments. VM-SHELF helps shoe and athletics retailers be creative and flexible with their merchandising on the store floor, and VM-DRYerase MNW let’s all kinds of people in office and educational environments brainstorm more productively.”
