Index Dividers with Pockets Keeps Documents in Order to Home Renovation

October 15th, 2014

After contemplating for months about whether or not to remodel her home, a coworker has decided to start making plans to renovate her kitchen. Knowing that the planning process would be extensive, she wanted to be sure to stay organized so that all of her research would be in order.

Keeping track of quotes and vendors she contacted, in addition to tracking all of her final decisions would be beneficial in the long run. Not only would she be able to recall what colors were used to paint the kitchen, but she could also fall back on another company if her contractor ever fell through.

Extension Cord with Cover is Valuable Trade Show Tool

September 10th, 2014

After attending a trade show last month, I gained a new appreciation for one of C-Line’s products.

The Lay-Flat Power Extension and Cord Cover is a unique industrial product, which was first introduced to the line earlier this year. Originally, our plan was to display this product on a table at the show, but it ended up being a valuable tool while setting up.

Name Badges Used to Identify Important Things in Classroom

August 14th, 2014

When it comes to name badges, I think it is a pretty safe bet that everyone has had some interaction with these ID products. Often used at trade shows and group gatherings, the badges help communicate who you are to someone without having to verbally say it.

A friend of mine tried to apply this same logic to her classroom when she began to prepare for the new school year. Her goal was to help her students get acclimated to their new classroom without having to constantly stop class to demonstrate where things were located.

No-Hole Sheet Protector Provides Clean, More Professional Appearance

August 6th, 2014

Being in the office product industry, I tend to pay attention to how people or businesses choose to use our items.

Someone deciding to use an expanding file over a document case or folder instead of a report cover often comes down to a personal decision. However, there are sometimes that a different product within our line can make much more sense.

One of the biggest examples of this is when individuals use sheet protectors that are hole punched to protect documents even though they are not storing these pages in binders.

Security Wristbands Help Indicate Price Levels at Garage Sale

July 30th, 2014

To me, one of the staples of summer is weekend garage sales. Once the weather starts to warm up, it seems like one can be found in almost any neighborhood. This year, I decided to participate in our subdivision’s annual garage sale in hopes of getting rid of some clutter.

Since I have never prepared for something like this before, I did not expect the amount of preparation that was involved in getting organized for the sale. The biggest element was determining how to price and label items.

Ideally, I wanted to create a price system that was easy for our garage sale crew to interpret. I decided to use color as a way to identify what price range items should be sold at. This would allow our helpers to know how low they could go when negotiating with potential buyers.

July 9th, 2014

Welcome to our final addition of this blog series! It has been lots of fun taking a different look at how and where our products are being used. This post idea comes straight from the owners of C-Line.

During a recent vacation, Jim and Judi Krumwiede went shopping at one of the boutique stores located on their cruise ship. While at a store, they began looking through a binder the employee had, allowing them to see different styles and variations of items that were available.

Presentation Book Stores Travel Documents for Upcoming Trip

June 4th, 2014

My husband and I are in the process of preparing for a 10-day trip abroad. Being a tourist in a foreign country can sometimes be overwhelming with what sites and tours are available to see.

In order to narrow down what we want to visit, I have been doing a lot of research about what our options are. Additionally, as with any trip, there are a lot of important documents that come with your confirmation paperwork once the vacation has been booked

Quickly, my carry-on luggage was getting full between all my research and our travel documents. At first, I used a project folder  to store all the information, but I thought it might be easier to organize the pages in a way that kept them more visible.

How to Create Your Own Address Book

May 21st, 2014

It was not until my wedding last year that I realized how important it is to maintain an address book with people’s updated contact information. Tracking people down for correct addresses took a lot of time, and I wanted to avoid that in the future.

Post-wedding, I officially had everyone’s current contact information so I decided to spend some time and create an address book. I was disappointed in the standard books available at the store because I did not feel like they included everything I wanted, so I ultimately ended up choosing a C-Line product to use.

Sometimes DIY projects can take some time, but luckily the Mini Size Binder Kit came already assembled. Once it was reorganized, I was ready to start filling it with people’s contact information.
