As the world changes, we change with it.
Two entrepreneurs who sold advertising to companies located near colleges and universities founded the Colad Group in 1947. The ads were printed on paper textbook covers, which college bookstores provided free to students. In fact, the name "Colad" is derived from "Collegiate Advertising."
Today, Colad's products have evolved to include everything from paper folders and binders to highly creative custom packaging solutions, many of which feature patented designs and introduce the most cutting-edge construction styles available. Colad designs and manufactures custom presentation and promotional packaging for a diverse client base.
We serve the nation's top colleges and universities, advertising agencies, publishers, Fortune 500 companies, as well as design studios, professional sports teams and resellers.
In 1997, Colad moved its manufacturing operations from a charming old soap factory to a modern, 80,000 square-foot, climate-controlled facility designed and built to our specifications. To provide the outstanding service our customers expect, we constantly reinvest capital in equipment and technology upgrades in all areas of pre-production and production.
Colad provides world-class products and services by dedicating itself to customer satisfaction for all markets served and continuously improving our products, procedures, customer-based quality systems and operating systems.
