Here at Coller Industries, we pride ourselves on our high-quality workmanship, our culture of quality and our perfect name tags and ribbons. And, while we like to boast about our less than 0.05% error rate, we also want to boast about our nearly perfect employees.

Ramona, the Marketing and Web Services Manager, said, “It’s amazing just how much everything works together. We have such a culture of quality in this company. And, it is so impressive that we are less than a half percent in our error rate.”

All in all, Coller Industries strives in every way possible to get each order not only out the door quickly and efficiently, but correctly! And our low error rate proves this, not only to us but to our current and potential customers.

Aimee, the Senior Account Manager, said, “It has been a fun and exciting year getting to know our many customers and I would like to thank all of the employees, everyone from every department for their assistance and support in ensuring the satisfaction of all of our customers.”

Having a low error rate increases sales and increased sales translate into happy customers. And with happy customers, Coller Industries remains in business to continue to serve everyone and their personal identification needs!

And, part of this happiness needs to extend to our family here at Coller Industries.

Hannah, the Customer Service Manager, said it best, “What makes Coller Industries stand out, is that it feels more like family than work. We all support each other and care about each other, and I think that is such a big contribution to how well we do as a company. Obviously work is work, but it is so much easier to do when everyone you work with is a friend, and everyone cares about each other. I think that is part of what keeps us so motivated to do well.”

Our annual tradition of the Christmas party includes a giant luncheon hosted and catered at a local hotel. This year’s meal included prime rib, chicken, salmon, asparagus and other sides for a feast fit for a king. There were also delicious appetizers of crackers and spinach dip with prosciutto wrapped asparagus.

Vance, the Design Manager, said, “I enjoyed the appetizers, I was nearly full by the time the main meal was starting. And I liked that this year’s party was smaller, with only the one guest it made the party feel more about our accomplishments as a group than a meal with families.”

Playing games at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas partyWe also played games and gave out prizes for raffles. From a holiday word scramble to trying to remember who had played the jolly man in red, the games were a blast and the presents even better.

And, every year each employee receives a personalized gift from Coller Industries. This year was a water bottle decorated with the CI logo which was full of candy. We also got a custom embroidered jacket with the CI logo.

Employee Awards at the Coller Industries Incorporated Christmas partyThis year we also had a special treat and recognized the hard work of several employees. From perfect attendance to most efficient, each of these employees received one of our new custom plaques engraved with their specific talent and name.

Here are more thoughts from several employees about our fabulous annual Christmas party:

Crystal (Shipping Clerk) “Everything about the party this year was just so amazing and fun. I wouldn’t have changed anything. And, I really like how plaques were given out for employee appreciation.”

Mathew (Web Design / Development) “The people and environment are the best part about the annual party. It is a nice casual setting where we can enjoy one another’s company and socialize.”

Leslie (Shipping Clerk) “My favorite thing about the Christmas party was getting together with all of the employees and just having fun.”

Charles (Sample Requests) “I always enjoy the company of my coworkers as we are also friends. And it isn’t very often that we get to chat and hang out throughout a workday.”

We just want to say thank you to everyone who works for Coller Industries. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for our wonderful employees. And, to all of our customers, have a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!

Custom Signs, Ribbons and Holiday Decor

After creating your custom signs, use personalized ribbon rolls to hang them.

Decorating for the holidays just became easier! Are you one of those people who prefer to decorate with a theme or use uniformity in your colors and style? Using engraved holiday custom signs is a great way to keep a theme going. And using personalized ribbon rolls to hang them takes it one step further.

From choosing your favorite holiday color and text to making a unique colorful statement, designing ribbons to go with your Christmas decor is sure to make everyone smile. Just add your favorite carol lyrics, or any other festive text, to a holiday ribbon and hang a fun themed sign on your doors and windows. Or, use that same ribbon to hang ornaments on your Christmas tree.

Here are three great tips for hanging your custom signs and decorations this year!

using personalized ribbons and custom signs for holiday decorations for home and officeBraided Ribbon Chains

Try to keep your ribbons as flat as possible, and just start braiding. Remember that your ribbon length will shorten as your braid gets longer, so either pre-measure with that in mind or work directly off your ribbon rolls. Secure the braid with a small, tight knot once your braid is long enough. Once this is complete, attach your ribbon to the back of your sign or other decoration with double-sided tape.

Want something a bit more decorative? Take two of your ribbon colors and make a big circle with the long ends sticking out from underneath. Then take the third ribbon color and tie it around the middle of that circle and the top of the braid. Doing this will make a bow without a lot of trouble. The ends of the third ribbon color will get used as a tail with the other colors.

Using this option will require pre-drilled holes in your custom signs. However, the effect is something quite extraordinary! Measure out the length of ribbon that is necessary to hang your sign. Make a loop with each end of the ribbon and stick one end through each hole in the sign. Pass another piece of ribbon through the loop and tie that ribbon into a bow. This bow can be any size you would like. It can also be another ribbon color to add to your festivity. Then, tie the loop shut on the backside of the sign, and hang.
