Personalized Graduation Gifts

Posted by Kyle Design on May 17, 2011

With graduation just around the corner, the entire staff at Kyle Design is gearing up for the celebration. Each year we engraved hundreds of graduation quotes commending students all around the world for their perseverance and dedication as they conclude one chapter in their life and begin the next. Whether they are graduating from law school or high school, graduates deserve a memento to remember this milestone and look back at it with a sense of accomplishment.

A great gift for graduates is a beautiful ornament honoring their achievement with a congratulatory engraving that they will be proud to display during the holidays or even year round. Finding the perfect gifts for grads can often times be complicated, but at Kyle Design we do our very best to make sure that whatever item you choose will be one-of-a-kind and special.
For English Literature or Creative Writing majors, a unique bookmark with our graduation cap design is a useful gift idea that they will continue to use for years to come. This bookmark is durable and just the right size and can even be engraved on the back with a graduation date or the graduate’s initials.

If your graduate will be setting out into the business world, choose from our many occupational designs to adorn a sophisticated business card case that they can use at interviews or mixers. These professional business card holders are one of our top-selling gifts for graduation and can be given to any student who is about to enter the corporate environment.

If you know anyone who is graduating from a nursing school, consider surprising them with a practical custom badge reel that they’ll use well throughout their career. Available with a nurse cap or RN design, these reels are one of our most popular graduation gifts for nurses.

The graduation of a family member or loved one is a momentous occasion for families and friends everywhere. This year put a little bit of thought into the gifts you give by personalizing them with your graduate’s name, favorite color or future occupation for an unforgettable surprise.

Designer Dilemma: Oil Rubbed Bronze Switch Plates

Posted by Kyle Design on May 2, 2011

If you’re anything like us here at Kyle Switch Plates, then you notice the small details in everything and every where you go. From flooring, to wall art and cabinet hardware, your eye is trained to pick up the beauty in every room and see hidden potential in even the “ugliest” of things. When you first enter someone’s home or business you are immediately introduced to their sacred space. A home and even a small business are a true representation of our inner and outer self, and our choice in metals, wall color, furniture and accessories say more about our personalities than you may think.

Recently, oil rubbed bronze has been a popular metal choice for homeowners and small business owners when choosing light fixtures, faucets and door hardware. But let’s not forget the most obvious and necessary accessory: switch plates. What many don’t know is that you can customize switch plates to match all the fixtures in your space so that they fit right in and contribute to your personal style. Oil rubbed bronze switchplates are the perfect finishing touch in any work area or social space because they add a hint of elegance and enhance your room without being intrusive.

Gone are the days when a homeowner had to settle for boring, white plastic wall plates which stick out like sore thumbs against patterned wallpaper or faux finished walls. Plastic plates are infamous for cracking and severely yellowing over the years. But with metal plates, you don’t have to worry about damage issues and replacement for years to come, allowing you to enjoy your home (and purchase) without concern. Investing in bronze wall covers is like proclaiming a fashion statement for your personal or work space while showing off your attention to detail.

If you’re worried about configurations and mismatching electrical devices, Kyle Switch Plates offers a wide array of switch plate sizes and openings as well as flattering brown electrical devices to blend seamlessly. From oversized to hard-to-find switch covers, you’re likely to find all the plates you need for a designer look at Kyle Switch Plates.

Building a custom home or launching a new business? Consider these desirable wall plates if you’re investing in oil rubbed bronze hardware or decorating in an “old world” or vintage style. In example, a hip local coffee shop with bronze pendant lighting and antique furnishings would be a great fit for this timeless finish. Oiled bronze plates will demonstrate to your customers that not only do you care about your public image but that you don’t mind going the extra mile.

So whether you’re remodeling your kitchen and aiming for a “rustic” look or opening a trendy coffee shop, if you’re worried about mixing metals and want to stick with a theme we highly recommend these affordable oil rubbed bronze switchplates to complete your vision. And when you have people asking whether you worked with an interior designer, you’ll proudly be able to proclaim that you did this all on your own.
