This Spring, the University of Colorado spent a few afternoons digging into the notable sustainability efforts Bloomin has helped pioneer in the promotional products industry. This video is a brief outline of the many products and processes that Bloomin developed 22 years ago. With hundreds of thousands of seed paper products sold around the globe each year, Bloomin has been recognized as the originator and true authority on all things seed paper.

Bloomin still makes paper the old fashioned way, one sheet at a time, in the Shadows of the University of Colorado. We are proud of our close ties to the community and appreciate CU taking the time to recognize our efforts to operate at the forefront of environmental sustainability. Go Buffs!

A Word from the Bloomin' President

Posted by on in Our Community

 

Ask me what makes our company great, and I'll tell you its the people who work there. Our current team of All Star Rock Stars is constantly striving to build a better company for our valued customers every day. Be it back in the die cutting department, paper making, printing, accounting, assembly, shipping, customer service, sales, or the art department, we all are working hard to make Bloomin' the best it can be. It's the people that work there that make it so fun and exciting to come to work everyday. It is inspiring to see the diverse backgrounds and interests that make up our complex, yet ever so simple company fabric.

 

I am a big fan of Malcolm Gladwell books. Having read the Tipping point and Blink, I was excited to find his latest release "Outliers" traveling back from one of my recent promotional products trade shows. He delivers many insightful accounts, including one of the Chinese rice farmers of the 15th century. He describes their work as particularly meaningful and entrepreneurial. "They weren't just planting in the spring and harvesting in the fall, they autonomously ran their own small businesses - renting the best land they could find, juggling the family workforce, hedging uncertainty with hearty seed selection, building and maintaining sophisticated irrigation systems, and coordinating the complicated process of harvesting the first crop while simultaneously preparing the next". Sounds a lot like the challenges and rewards we face at Bloomin!

In Outliers, Gladwell talks about how today's very best hockey and soccer players are people who are not only talented and work hard but they also benefit from weird and peculiar ways in which their world is organized. I am certain the Outlier phenomenon occurs within many of our own key people, and has been instrumental in our ability to pen our own "Story of Success". A good read, as are all of his books.

Winter in October: a cold weekend in Boulder

Posted by on in Our Community

 

Here is Tia and Naomi, my two 7 year olds enjoying a wintry Sunday morning. We broke a weather record the experts say, I believe it, brrrrrrrrrrrr. Is it because of climate change? I suspect so but I sure hope not. Anyway, I hope these two beauties will brighten your day, they brighten my day everyday. Our kids are the best thing that ever happened to us. It is so much fun looking at the world through their bright eyes. If you have kids, you know what I am talking about huh, if not, I'm sure you have plenty of other great things you enjoy. I hope it gets back up in the 70's soon, I'm not done with fall yet.
