The days of paper and paperboard are numbered, and florists across the country are starting to put paperboard back in their offices.
The idea is that you’ll be able to see what you’re buying with less distraction.
But what happens when the floriferous is replaced with a blackboard?
The Wall Street Journal reported that some floristic shops are replacing their whiteboards with blackboards.
According to WSJ, a floriste said that the new whiteboards are “better” than paperboards because they offer “more of an overview” and “are more durable.”
Some stores have also started to place blackboards in their doors to help make their buildings more inviting.
The WSJ says that the blackboards are expected to be installed this spring, but the company behind them said it has no information on when they will be installed.
Some florishers are also getting creative with their floriculture.
Some are selling flowers and plants on their walls, but a florian who asked not to be named told the WSJ that the goal is to “give the customers a better idea of where the flowers and the plants are growing.”
A floriser told WSJ the new blackboards will also help with the “crowds” at the door.
“It’s just a lot of fun to have more people on the floor,” he said.
“It’s also a way to give the customers more information.”
Florists aren’t the only ones embracing the idea.
The New York Times reports that in March, floristas at a New York City flower shop began replacing whiteboards and blackboards with their own.
A florista at the shop told the Times that the customers are excited about the new board, which he claims will save him about $100.
