Backpack Marketing by Colad

Colad’s Custom packaging serves as masterful marketing tool with a WOW factor for Appleton Learning!

Appleton worked with Colad to create a custom marketing piece to reflect who they are as a company.  These custom boxes were sent to carefully selected franchisees, educational facilities and prospective partners- complete with a handwritten message from the Appleton’s CEO!

This custom paperboard box with EPS Foam insert had 8 wells designed to hold 8 rubber-band style bracelets that read: Aristotle, Da Vinci, Locke, Monet, Picasso, Plato, Rembrandt, Socrates [which coincides with the company’s eight learning styles].

Farewell, Au Revoir, Arrivederci!

Today marks the final day of Diane Durham’s 15 year reign as Production Coordinator of The Colad Group.  She has trained many of our employees, worked with most of our customers, and has made countless friends during her years here.  She will be missed greatly by all!!!

To lighten the mood- let’s take a look at what was happening in the U.S. the year that Diane started here at The Colad Group:

– Bill Clinton was our president
– Titanic won best picture at the Academy Awards
– Elton John topped the musical charts with Candle in the Wind
– The nation’s favorite television show was E.R.
– The price of gas was right around $1.36/gallon
– Dolly the sheep was cloned
– The first cell phone to have a ‘vibrate’ feature was introduced

Best of luck on life’s next chapter, Diane!

By giving students the supplies they need to learn!

Mixed emotions are natural on the first day of school for kids and parents alike. But nobody should have to feel nervous because they do not have adequate school supplies to get through their year!
