Around The Office

I thought I would make Around the Office a regular blog feature (I have tried it a few times here and here) showcased on the last Monday of each month highlighting some things that have gone on around our offices.

Friday Inspiration: Becoming an Expert


I defiantly started out as a beginner over 40 years ago with selling just a vinyl apron. As I have researched products and slowly added as I go along I'm still continually learning. I'm happy to now offer a new line of products geared toward entertaining to complement our disposable products like our bibs and banquet rolls. As someone who has grown up and lived in the Midwest her whole life I don't know a ton about eating/cooking seafood so I plan on doing lots of research this summer. It's a tough job but someones got to do it. 

It's helpful to remember that even though we may be a beginner everyone who's an expert started out that way.

Friday Inspiration: Smile When It's Raining

It's been raining literally every day around here but I'm choosing to look on the bright side. April showers bring May flowers, the grass is no longer brown but bright green and lush, winter is behind us, and at least once a week we have a perfectly lovely day.
Enjoy the Weekend!

Set of Two Doggie Bags

Our #475 plastic doggie bags are purchased as a set of two designs.

They both measure 7"x12" and are sold in packs of 100 or by the case of 1,000. These doggie bags do not have the full gusset side seam like our #476 & #470 doggie bags.

Friday Inspiration: Achieving Goals

{An image taken at a local park last year}

The quote for today is a reminder to keep on track with the goals you may have set at the beginning of the year, or to encourage you to start setting some new goals. With a third of the new year already behind us it's a good time to reassess how far we've come, and where we want to be before the end of the year. 

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. 
- Thomas Jefferson

Spring Cleaning

To get a jump start on Spring Cleaning I started at the beginning of the New Year, but now with the weather getting warmer and the days growing longer, I've found more energy to pick up the pace and keep going. I find it hard to let things go but the added stress of the clutter does me no good, and less clutter gives me more energy that allows me to enjoy my home and business more.

Friday Inspiration

"You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming."
-Pablo Neruda

Spring is an exciting time around here. The grass turns green and flowers and trees start to bud. It's hard to imagine right now but these beautiful pink tulips are (an Easter gift from a friend) a nice reminder of what's to come.

A Little For Later

Our plastic doggie bags printed with a "A Little For Later" on the front measure 13"x5"x3". They are sold in packs of 100 or by the case of 500. The doggie bags have a full gusset side seam which allows the bag to open up and hold more. Our doggie bags are great for restaurants, parties, weddings, or perfect for home use to send guests on their way with leftovers or a special treat.
