When I think of bamboo, I usually don’t get too far past the image of a big panda chomping on a stick of green bamboo. So to imagine bamboo as anything beyond this comes as a challenge for me. But in reality, bamboo is one of the most amazing renewable resources in the world.
So when I was given the task of writing about about our bamboo signs, I gladly took on the challenge to learn more about this material. Here’s what I found….
- Bamboo is the fastest growing renewable resource on earth. And, it’s actually a grass, which is part of the reason it matures so quickly. But we’re talking three feet of growth in one day.
- Bamboo is a great replacement for wood. It is lightweight and flexible, yet stronger than hardwood and steel. Seriously, this stuff is no joke.
- Bamboo can be found all over the world. South America, North America, Africa, Asia…it can be found on almost all continents.
- Bamboo is an incredibly diverse material. Its uses range from culinary to medicinal, to construction, textile, weaponry, musical instruments and even can be used as a writing surface.
No we may be biased, but our favorite way to use bamboo is for office signs. Using bamboo as a substrate for office signs or any signs for that matter, is a great way to elevate your sign game. By using this renewable resource for your office signage needs, you are being kind to the environment, while also creating a unique feel for your conference room signs, restroom signs, medical signs, ceiling signs, door signs, and window signs.
While we love making signs here at Office Sign Company (obviously) we also love to make all sorts of smaller items out of bamboo. We make anything from name badges and name tags to bamboo coasters, bamboo recognition plaques, bamboo personalized grill sets, bamboo cutting boards, bamboo bottle openers, and bamboo travel mugs…if you can think of it, we can make it.
