Wilsonart, a leading manufacturer of decorative surfaces, and Canadian-based manufacturer of high pressure laminate, Arborite, announced their combined sponsorship of the Save a Sample! program. The program collects unused brochures, fabrics, finish cards and samples that are then delivered to design schools and students to use in their projects and design work. Arborite and Wilsonart’s combined Platinum sponsorships assist Save a Sample! with its commitment to the environment and to continue to help developing designers as well. The program expanded to Canada in 2014 and this is the first year of sponsorship for Arborite. Wilsonart has supported the program for more than five years. Thousands of pounds of materials have been donated by some of the busiest design firms since the program’s inception. As a result, design students have a more extensive set of resources to choose from as they cultivate their skills.
