February 11th, 2015

Often times, our customers look to us to make suggestions on how to use our items. Whether they need help for a particular situation or just want more information on how to best use a product, we at C-Line are happy to guide them in the right direction!

Here is a recent question we received from a customer.

Question

As an event planner, my team and I are always looking for new things to do at the events that we are hosting. Over the holidays, we organized a fundraiser with silent auction and raffle items. Some of the feedback we received is that people were unaware of items that were being auctioned since they had no description to make the item stand out. Do you have any suggestions on how we can improve our set-up for the next fundraising event?

January 14th, 2015

After becoming familiar with using a product, sometimes people will always continue to use it. Organization methods that we learned in school and supplies that we used can be carried over into the professional world.

Products like Two-Pocket Portfolios, which were once used to hold class notes, can still be beneficial when organizing information at work. Although the products work in both scenarios, C-Line has a developed a professional look to separate classroom supplies and office products.

Teacher Explains How Sorter Keeps His Classroom Organized

December 10th, 2014

A customer favorite, C-Line’s Sorter is a tool that many individuals use to organize their paperwork. The sorters have different labeling systems on them, so almost anyone can benefit from using it. It even comes in a left-handed version so everyone can easily file!

The sorter is also commonly used by teachers. Initially, I assumed teachers would organize homework and tests alphabetically within the sorter. Although that still would work, I have always wondered what would happen if there were 5 students with a last name ending in ‘C’.

New Dry Erase Pockets Perfect Storage Place for Weekly Meal Plan

November 19th, 2014

Planning ahead is a helpful way to get organized and stay on track. Prior to grocery shopping, I have always tried to plan ahead what I was cooking throughout the week. Recently, I began writing the meal plan out at the start of each week. Doing this has kept us on track and helped avoid detouring from the plan.

In the past, I was using C-Line’s Reusable Dry Erase Pockets to store the weekly plan. Every week I would insert a schedule printed on letter-size paper into the holder. Next, I would write out the meals for the week directly on the dry erase surface.

Create an Ideal Coaching Portfolio with the 8-Pocket Portfolio and Dry Erase Sheets

October 22nd, 2014

Taking up new projects is something I have always enjoyed doing. A few months ago, I decided to start coaching for a grammar school volleyball team. Having only played and never coached before, I was not aware of what to expect, but I was definitely excited about the opportunity.

Within a week of signing up to coach, I was provided with a packet of documents that included emergency contact information, registration and medical information, schedules, etc. Each coach was required to have all of this information on hand for every game and practice, so I needed to get it organized quickly.
