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.

giving back to our community through donations to our customers helps us to be betterPush creative boundaries by adding a multi-color logo to your name tags. 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.

We are grateful for Clothes To Kids of Fairfield County, Inc. and the work they accomplish. Each donation helps us not only stand out from our competition but helps us to be who we are.

Deluxe Magnetic Fastener Benefits

A magnetic fastener holds everything in place!

Not all fasteners are created equal. As our most popular fastener choice, the deluxe magnetic fastener is an excellent choice for almost every name tag!

This magnet fastener consists of two parts: a metal plate with indentations and a plastic bar that holds two strong magnets. The plate holds the magnet in place and adheres to the back of most name tags. And the bar holds everything together and in place through multiple layers of clothing.

Our deluxe magnetic fastener is the highest quality fastener available.

The strong magnets attach easily, even through thick clothing, while preventing holes and clothing damage. Among the many fastener types offered, the deluxe magnets are best for wearing with professional clothing as they do not leave holes. Something to consider when ordering name tags for your company is that these fasteners work great on loose clothing or expensive fabrics. Unlike pins, they do not leave holes or snag on softer pieces.

Magnets also give employees the opportunity to wear a single name tag with different uniforms or clothing choices. Wear one on a shirt collar or pocket. Try one on a jacket or suit coat. Wherever is most convenient to wear it, a magnetic fastener will make sure that a name tag is instantly visible.

deluxe magnetic fastener for a name tag or name badge with or without logoWe offer two choices for magnets. We have them available with or without our logo to match your needs and style.

And, there will never be another worry about losing a name tag. These magnets are strong enough to ensure all day wear without any damage to your clothing.

Remember, your fastener choice will impact the name tag’s appearance, so choose carefully. Don’t make this decision too quickly. Make sure to weigh all possibilities before adding a fastener to your order. (Including to remember never to use magnets with a pacemaker.)

Should A Realtor Wear A Name Tag?

Amplifying your brand as a Realtor starts with wearing a name badge.

In a recent vlog for Real Estate Raw & Uncut, Byron Lazine and Tim Bray discuss the importance of why a Realtor should wear a name tag.

realtor name tags can be essential for amplifying your brandShould your chest be a billboard?” questions Lazine.

There are times when you should definitely have a name badge. Like when you are going to a national event or a local chamber meeting or things like that. I think somebody remembers your face, but they don’t remember your name,” said Bray.

Here’s the question: Does it increase your chances of getting business?” said Bray.

I think it does!” exclaimed Lazine.

So that’s the answer. It kinda goes against the grain of what I’ve thought about in the past,” stated Bray.

The question is:
Does it increase your chances of getting business?

Remember that everyone is a possible client. So wearing a name tag does have the potential to increase brand awareness and get your name and reputation out there.

Lazine also spoke on the importance of amplifying your brand as a Realtor. He compared the use of a name tag to using a business card with a picture. By wearing a name tag, prospective clients, as well as current clientele, will not only remember your face, but they will associate you with the brand you are representing.

realtor name tags can be essential for amplifying your brandBut should real estate agents wear name badges on a daily basis? Many other professions don’t wear them so that it could be perceived as cheesy or corny. And, in many cases, it depends on someone’s style. The most important thing to consider is to do what makes you feel the most confident!

Here at Coller Industries, we agree with Lazine and Bray. Name tags are important for everyone! But don’t just take our word for it. Check out the vlog (video blog) for yourself!

Fun in the Sun with Coller Industries

Summer is always a wonderful time here at Coller Industries!

playing at the park with coller industries at the summer bbq and partyWe’re busy getting out orders and making sure we stay on task so that our customers get what they ordered. But, we also know how to have fun! Every year, Coller Industries throws a Summer BBQ Bash for the employees. And every year it seems just to get better.

The party is held at Germania Park (a local park here in Utah) every year. It’s a great place with plenty of space for all the employees to come and enjoy the food and company. There is always fun for all ages, and the employees were encouraged to bring their families.

This year included a bounce house for the kids and water guns for anyone who wanted to play. We also had fantastic food provided by Joe Morley’s BBQ. The spread they brought was fabulous and fed everyone till they couldn’t eat anymore.

As employees, we would like to give a special thank you to Coller Industries and especially the Coller family for providing such an enjoyable activity for their employees.

And here’s how we do that:

Mathew, Web Design and Development, said, “Being with family and friends was the best part. I love being with people that I can socialize with and be comfortable around.”

Lydia, Customer Service, said, “The food was my favorite part because it was all really good and there was nothing I didn’t enjoy.”

Charles, Sample Requests, said, “The ribs were delicious!” He also said, “I think we have an exceptional staff. I work for a very special company who really cares about its employees. And the result is that the employees have developed long lasting relationships.”

Amanda, Solutions Manager, said, “It was really HOT! But, my favorite part would have to be the BBQ. Coller Industries always tries out new and exciting BBQ places every year.”

Pet Rescue, Coller Industries and Donations

Our customers are amazing!

And, once again, we’d like to say thank you to them by highlighting our most recent donation activities. Coller Industries prides itself on our contributions to our community. Donations to repeat customers make our work completely worth it.

one of the newest donations from coller industries was to paws and claws rescue and resortBrenda Bray, a volunteer at Paws and Claws Rescue & Resort, “We are passionate about animals. We build our new shelter with state of the art sanitation and ventilation. This ensures that the animals remain healthy and thrive. Our new solar array helps us with energy efficiency. The boarding and grooming services of Paws and Claws will fund the no-kill shelter. We will also provide community programs for young and old alike and eventually have a program to provide service animals to veterans.”

Paws and Claws has received more than one donation from Coller Industries. The first donation was for the resort’s board members. The name tags aided in recognition to spread awareness and raise the needed funds to build the shelter.

“This second donation will be used for our newly hired employees and our volunteers as we open the shelter in July,” explained Bray.

Coller Industries was happy to help!
