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!

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.

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.)

Personal Identification Reinvented

Name tags and other identification products are in our lives to stay, no matter what we think of them.

reinventing the name tag and other personal identification Most professions these days make you wear or use a personal identification product. From name tags to name plates and even lanyards and ribbons, these items are becoming more and more popular in the workplace. And with that popularity comes the opposition of using these standard tools.

So, how can you, as an employer, make them a bit more bearable for those that you require to use them? Let’s take a moment and reinvent this usage.

First and foremost, a definition needs to be provided for why you are using personal identification products.

What is your primary purpose for using these tools? Are you looking to provide company branding or making your employees more visible to your customers? There are several different ways to use identification. Office security, quick acknowledgment of employees, and office/desk labels are among the top reasons.

A couple lesser known, albeit not lower in value, reasons are for identifying an individual for a job well done or to make it easier to remember someone’s name and their face simultaneously. But, no matter what the goal of this personal identification, there is always a way to make it better.

The second step in reinventing this tool is to make it appeal to those who have to wear it.

adding logos to reinvent personal identification and name tagsMake it flashy, but not so flashy that it’s an embarrassment to put on a name tag. Add a logo and some fun colors to make a name tag pop. Or add a title to a name plate to make someone feel a bit more important in your office.

Remembering the primary reason for personal identification will aid in making this second step easier. Once you put the required information onto a name tag, don’t forget the flair. Make it unique to your company or exclusive to the person wearing it. But keep them in mind when considering your design techniques.

The final step is involvement.

Keep your employees in the loop as to why they are being required to wear or use personal identification. While “it is part of your uniform” is a good reason, it isn’t the only reason. Make sure to communicate the importance of what that name tag means. Keep them informed, and they will be happier to continue to wear their name tags!

So, name tags, they are here to stay, and it’s your job to help others to see why they are so important!
