It can get pretty crazy around here during the holidays. In-between sales meetings, rush orders and shipping madness our GBD elf is always looking for ways to give us a break and promote some friendly competition within. This year we had a cookie decorating contest and the most GBD themed cookie won!
Gifts By Design Recognized as one of Washington’s Best Places To Work
Leading distributor of branded merchandise and apparel, employee recognition programs, and company web-stores named one of The Best Places To Work In Washington by the Puget Sound Business Journal.
Gifts By Design, Inc., a creative merchandise company that is not only dedicated to the success of its clients, but also to the success and well-being of its employees, was recently named one of The Best Places To Work in Washington by the Puget Sound Business Journal.
“We all work hard to exceed our clients’ expectations every day, and to do that, you need to be in an environment that allows the best idea to win, no matter whose idea it is, and that encourages open communication and collaboration,” says Jamie Stone, president of Gifts By Design.
“There is always someone willing to help, and we’re frequently celebrating each other’s victories. We have the opportunity to think outside the box and dream big! The sky is the limit when it comes to what we can do for our clients, and where we want to take our careers. It’s an incredible feeling to really enjoy going to work each day!”, says Kylee Wilson, senior account coordinator.
GBD emphasizes the importance of work and home life balance and believes that you need good time away from work in order to come back each day and give it your all when you are at work.
Puget Sound Business Journal (working with Quantum Workplaces) surveys every employee at each nominated company, asking them a wide range of questions about the job satisfaction, personal growth and development, job training, teamwork, compensation, and other issues that are at the core of what makes a person happy and feel good about their workplace.
“We’re honored to have been nominated and selected based on the surveys from our employees. It renews our commitment to making Gifts By Design a great place to work and grow your career. We have several employees that have been here for more than 10 years–which is pretty unique in this day and age–including one going on her 17th year and one going her 16th!”
The nominees will be honored at an event at Safeco Field on August 11, and we’re excited to participate.
Congratulation to all of the nominees for providing great places for their employees to work, and for making a difference in our community!
GBD is proud to partner with such an amazing organization!

We just found a great article on the Huffington Post about Why Promotional Products Still Matter.
One of the best parts of the article:
“Promotional products allow people to see your brand, associate your brand and recognise your brand. All these things are important as the more people who become aware of your brand – the better results you will see in business and sales.”
Go check out the article for more tips about what kinds of products work, and where to distribute them!

fūl bags are really popular among musicians. Why are these bags so hot right now? Partly because it’s rumored that Justin Timberlake is one of the company’s owners, but these are also really cool bags! They’re also surprisingly reasonably priced and really well made.
And if you haven’t heard about their revolutionary Powerbag, then you really need to see it in action. You can charge all of your electronic toys while they’re in your bag, so you’ll never run of power.
