“Nature does not rush and yet everything is accomplished.”
In 2014, National Manufacturing Day became an official holiday. A day that we are very excited about and a day that gives us an excuse to tell everyone our story. (Because it’s actually a pretty cool story to tell.)
It all started with 2 brothers that vowed to go into businesses together when they were just 12 and 16 years old and that vow turned into an international corporation. 64 years later we are still here and still going strong.
We started out as a company that made plastic badges to now having over 900 products (and that doesn’t even include all of our other custom products with our Promo division, but we will revisit that later on).
We soon moved into producing our own three-ring binders.
Yes, binders. Those things on every back to school list. Or the thing that organizes your paper in the office. Or you may have seen them holding important documents at your doctor’s office. A product that most of us probably use daily and goes a little unnoticed. You probably have a binder around you right now! The coolest thing out all of our binders is that they are made here in the US…right in Fort Worth, Texas. We pride ourselves on this fact about us and something we hold close to our hearts. Few items we purchase or need aren’t made in the US anymore.
And like most items they go beyond our attention…. they still have a story. Our story continues through many developmental ideas. We even have a few firsts in the binder market including curved back binders, antimicrobial, 6” D-ring, 5” round ring, biobased, and speedy spine.
We bet you didn’t know there were so many different types of binders huh? We also have the largest selection of binder colors on the market!
We mentioned earlier that we have over 900 products but that didn’t include all the custom items we have. We know how important it is for people to market their brands and we help promote those brands through our custom binders, padfolios, journals and more. We customize all of our products in-house and we take great pride helping other brands promote themselves.
We aren’t done bragging just yet, our latest and greatest patented products include our DUO and TRIO series. These two organizational tools are a fan favorite. They have so many contributions to paper organization and we are still finding and hearing new ways in which people use them.
One last item to add to our story. We developed 2 other brands, Pop n’ Store and Altego. Pop n’ Store is our beautiful line of storage boxes, while Altego is for your backpack and laptop protection needs.
Our story is far from over and we look forward to sharing with you each chapter of our journey! We are always working towards the latest and greatest things. Be sure to keep up with us on social media for all the new products we have up our sleeves.
