Neighborhood House’s mission is to provide quality, affordable day care and supportive services to children and older adults based on their ability to pay. Preschool, afterschool, and summer programs for children and supervised care for adults are available to low-income families on a sliding fee scale, which determines the cost of care based on household income. Since opening our doors in 1894, Neighborhood House has remained committed to supporting low-income families in their efforts toward self-sufficiency and enhancing their quality of life.

Molly Neral, the Development Coordinator at Neighborhood House, said, “Name tags were donated to help our organization keep costs down while enhancing brand standards and brand visibility. They are used primarily for Tent Party, our largest event fundraiser of the year. They are to help differentiate committee, board, and staff members for guests.”

Logo Name Tags

Engraved in plastic, these name tags come in a variety of colors. Each name tag featured someone’s name, title and the Neighborhood House logo. These name tags are a great representation of how versatile Coller Industries’ products are. Each name tag is individually inspected to make sure it meets our quality standards. After that, we then send them to the customer.

No matter the choice for a logo name tag, it will always meet our high-quality standards. And it is sure to match exactly what our customer needs.

“The event was wonderful, and the name tags look great!” said Neral. “Thank you so much again for this incredible donation! The event these name tags were used for was a record-breaking year for Neighborhood House with funds raised!”

We are grateful for organizations such as Neighborhood House. All of our donations are sincerely something that helps us stand out from our competition.

Corporate Gifts Worth a Wow

It’s easy to give perfect corporate gifts that everyone will enjoy.

corporate gifts help to sustain relationships and deepen the personal connection between businesses and clientsShowing appreciation with corporate gifts for your customers, clients and employees doesn’t have to be complicated. And, most importantly, it doesn’t have to be a gift that is mundane. We all have several promotional mugs, t-shirts and other items that we receive as thank you gifts. So, what makes you stand out from your competitors?

Deciding on a product to give can be a difficult choice. And at this time of year, it’s important to start thinking about those corporate gifts. Not only is gift giving one of the best ways to improve office morale and grow and maintain your business, but it has become expected as a way to acknowledge a working relationship.

Corporate gifting is an opportunity to connect with your clients, strengthen employee ties, and share your holiday cheer. Recruiting, retention and business development are three other great reasons to give a gift. But don’t just give a gift because you think someone expects it. Give because you want to maintain these relationships.

What are you giving this year?

While fruit baskets and other homemade treats are enjoyable, why not make it something unique to the receiver? Go with something personalized this year. From custom shaped name tags to executive desk wedges, find and create something that will truly make your employees and clients feel like you care.

Does your vice president have a favorite quote? Make them a unique acrylic desk block that they are sure to display proudly. What about your customer service department? Do they need new name tags? Choose from our large selection of custom shapes and material colors so that they know you notice them. Whatever the department or work environment, personalized gifts are sure to make the difference.

name plates and personal identification are great ideas for corporate giftsWhether it’s a new name tag for you, a desk wedge for your associates or other personal identification products for your clients, custom-made gifts are always appreciated. And, we’re sure to have the right gifts for your needs!

P.S. We suggest this every year, not because we make them, but because they do make a great gift even better. So, recognize each employee for a job well done this year with a specially wrapped gift and some branded, personalized ribbon!

Giving to Kids to Inspire Our Community

Sometimes it isn’t about the name tags, but rather the giving of ourselves!

Coller Industries has long been giving back to our community. And those who follow us know that frequently giving donations is just something we love doing. Our most recent donation was to a fantastic company who gives everything back to their community.

Jane Elizabeth Macioci, Digital Media Volunteer for Clothes To Kids, explains how CTKF works.

giving back to our community through donations to our customers helps us to be better

Clothes To Kids is unique in how it provides clothing to those that are eligible for their services.

“Imagine shopping, with the assistance of a personal shopper, in a department store, trying on various articles of clothing, choosing those items that fit well and look good, checking out but not having to spend any money. Remarkable. Children who shop at CTKF leave with clothing of their choosing and their self-esteem intact. Families do not need to forgo the necessities of food, clothing and housing to purchase clothing that their children long to own to fit in with their peers.”

Clothing can change a life. Our mission is to provide new and quality used clothing to low-income or in-crisis school-age children in Fairfield County, Connecticut – free of charge. Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County envisions a community in which every school-age child has quality clothing so that he or she may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success.

“We envision a community in which every school-age child has quality clothing so that they may attend school with the confidence and self-esteem needed to achieve academic success,” said Macioci.

Adding a logo to a name tag emphasizes the professional side of your business. Full-color printing brings logos to life in colorful detail. There are no limits to the number of colors, color blends and shading. Premium UV printing is the best way to highlight your logo. The logo is printed on a plastic tag, and the text is engraved into the two-ply plastic.

Creative Kids and Custom Signs

Sometimes all you need is a creative mind, and you’ll have an instant piece of art.

Crafting and being creative at home is a treat when it comes to being a parent. But, sometimes it’s hard to let your child be themselves with their creativity. Here’s a project that will encourage each child to reach deep inside to discover their truly unique self.

Adding a door sign to a child’s room is the perfect touch to help them be themselves. Custom signs are perfect for bedrooms, playrooms, bathrooms and even a nursery.

Design custom signs with your text, logo and graphics. Use for your business, name a cabin or room, present an inspirational quote. Choose the size, color, font, text and an optional logo or graphic to create the perfect sign for your office, home, or to give as a gift for a friend, loved one or yourself.

This project takes these custom signs to a new level of creativity.

being creative and making a sign for your door is a fun at home craft

Both of these signs were drawn entirely by hand! Once the drawings were complete, a little bit of clean up was necessary. By tracing the lines with a permanent marker, the lines became clearer and sharper so that it was easier to engrave into an actual door sign.

As no other adjustments were made other than the tracing, these signs can be customized to meet any bit of creativity. Just sit down with a pencil and eraser and have at it! While these drawings are the musings of preteen boys, it isn’t a project limited to just a child. Make a sign for an adult’s room, the laundry room or even your garage door.

Each custom sign created this way must go through a particular process. We started with a plain, white piece of paper which was trimmed to the size of the sign we wanted. The children then drew away with a pencil and had an eraser handy for correcting. Once the child finished their artwork, a parent used a black permanent marker to trace the drawing onto a new, cut to size, blank, white paper. The tracing was done to create a clean, black and white image that could be scanned into a digital format. If you would like to attempt such a project, please call for more information before submitting an order.

These signs were hung with a strong, double-sided tape. Other fastener options include magnetic tape and Velcro. But, no matter what adhesive is your choice, these fun and unique signs are sure to be a hit with your child. And remember that when making a custom sign, being creative is the name of this game!
