What is honeycomb board?

FunDeco’s “honeycomb board” is a corrugated, low-density fiber substrate with a closed-cell honeycomb core. Both lightweight and extremely durable, honeycomb board is a rare blend in the furniture industry. Backed by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative, our boards are made with 100% renewable resources and contain a minimum of 20% recycled fiber. The SFI is a responsible, fastidious company which utilizes rigorous third-party certification audits to ensure proper care is being taken during the production of their products. In the wake of a green ecology takeover, this versatile board uniquely responds to the market need for a combination of form, function, and sustainability.

Our honeycomb board is so strong that it ships to us on palets made of… you guessed it, honeycomb board!

Lightweight durability is a daily obstacle faced by the engineers at Ferrari S.p.A., the luxury sports car manufacturer based in Maranello, Italy. For several years Ferrari has been experimenting with cardboard in their side panels and dashboards to help make their vehicles more aerodynamic. The material has also been used in the production of Recreational Vehicles. In our book, if it’s good enough for Ferrari’s cars, it’s good enough for our coffee tables!

How It Works: Wall Graphic

The third installment of How It Works is a real eye-catcher. Unlike many of the prominent items sold by FunDeco, the Wall Graphic is not constructed of honeycomb board; instead, it’s made out of 6 millimeter vinyl based film with a strong adhesive. Just like other popular versions, our Wall Graphics can be reapplied a multitude of times while still retaining their stickiness. However, our Wall Graphics won’t leave a $100 hole in your checkbook — because they’re being offered for the incredibly low price of just $40! Yup, less than half of what you’d spend with ‘those other guys.’

Our Wall Graphics are  46″ x 46″, a perfect size that immediately draws attention to the vibrant colors and collegiate logo. Check out the awesome schools we’re officially licensed for:

The Pub Table comes in three pieces, as shown above.

After interlocking the legs of the table, you’ll have a solid base (which comes with four “feet” (not shown) to keep the table elevated off the ground and help prevent the bottom from scuffing).

Social media keys company growth

The wizard behind the curtain? Social media.

The success stories are abundant – go ahead, google it. Time and time again, social media has aided organizations and taken their achieved success to a higher level. But just how exactly can tweeting, posting, and pinning increase your company’s revenue stream?

The concept is simple: enhance your brand, establish reliability, and your following will grow. It’s been said, “If you build it, they will come.” In reality, that rule is actually more applicable in today’s business world than for fictitious baseball diamonds (see the Miami Marlins).

With social media, the marketing possibilities are literally endless. Take this Twitter QR code for example.

With social media, the marketing possibilities are literally endless.

Take Color Ink’s very own FunDeco furniture & decor for example. From humble beginnings, FunDeco has transformed into a well recognized, popular brand now seen in campus bookstores, Marquette basketball games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, tailgates throughout the United States, and even heard on ESPN Radio – all within a six month span. Over that time, FunDeco has seen its “likes” on Facebook rise from twenty-something to a whopping 2,490 and counting. Each “like” represents a unique fan who now receives FunDeco updates, promotions, deals, and games right in their Facebook news feed. As a result, FunDeco has enjoyed a dramatic spike in sales.

Interacting with individual customers via social media platforms is one of the best ways to get a leg up on the competition.  If you’re unsure about starting or improving your own social media efforts, we’re here to help!
