The Holidays are Almost Upon Us, Not Those Holidays

October 9th, 2019

During my research on National MFG Day I found out about the MOST important and under celebrated holiday in the universe. National Doughnut Day. Once I read about it, I couldn’t stop thinking about it, and I was sure you would want to learn more. So, I Googled for more information.

National Doughnut Day is celebrated on the first Friday in June. Many doughnut shops give away free doughnuts on this date. I love doughnuts. I want a doughnut right now. While I’m sure I heard about it in June, somehow, I didn’t mark my calendar. I can’t believe, especially for anything as important as doughnuts! Damn it. As I read, I realized that there are TWO, yes that’s right, TWO National Doughnut Days. The second date is right around the corner on November 5.

A New Holiday to Celebrate

October 2nd, 2019

I read about a holiday named National MFG Day and I had to find out more about it. A Google search produced this website: https://www.mfgday.com/.

The holiday started in 2014 was created to inspire young people to go into manufacturing or engineering as a career. Manufactures encourage students, parents and educators to take a tour of participating facilities. Over 1600 manufacturers participate each year. It is celebrated on the first Friday in October (in 2019, it’s October 4).

C-Line is a manufacturer of plastic storage, identification and organization items that include shop ticket holders, poly sheet protectors, and name badges (including the iconic, “Hello My Name Is” pressure-sensitive badge). We just celebrated our 70th anniversary at our corporate headquarters and distribution facility in Mount Prospect, IL. We wish to recognize our fellow manufacturers and applaud their diligence and entrepreneurial spirit. We encourage all manufacturers to participate as they can on National MFG Day. Please use the hashtag #MFG19 on social media to get the word out about this day.

Before and After: Self-Laminating Magnetic Style Name Badge Kit

February 28th, 2019


This past weekend I was at a friend of mine’s house.  When I walked in the door she was writing a list of chores each person in the house had to complete that week.  Between herself, her husband and two kids they each have their own responsibilities to keep the house in order.  Doing the same chores every week can get boring so every week she assigns different chores to each person.  Rewriting the list every week was getting to be a hassle, so I suggested her to use C-Line’s Self Laminating Magnetic Styles Name Badge Holder Kit to create a chore board.
