As the world changes, so does Colad.

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.
