hi,

I’m Paul Boulais, Sales Rep Manager for Blue Q and I want YOU to call your local sales rep!

Why?

We want you to knock the socks off of your Blue Q sales, and the first step on that yellow brick road is to visit the well of good ideas available only through your rep. 84% of Blue Q’s top accounts work with their sales rep. That ain’t no coincidence, baby. Their broad view of your local area, your competition and your target customers comes from hitting the bricks every day. They know your neighborhood! If that weren’t enough, Blue Q often has deals and specials you can only get through your rep! It literally pays to work with them. Does that sound like a bribe? It kind of is. Don’t know who your rockin’ Blue Q Sales Rep is? What a shame! Give us a call on the toll free 800-321-7576 to get the phone number and email address of your new best friend!

Sales Rep/Blue Q Fan Club President Nancy Barile of Candace & Co. in the Pacific Northwest has been repping Blue Q for a long time. You might think we paid her to write this little list, but we swear she did it on her own!

10 Reasons I am Thankful for Blue Q

My orders always ship complete! 6. I can spot your orders in any back room because of the cheerful boxes you use to pack the orders! 7. Well, I know for sure that you really do just want me to be Happy! 8. Any secrets that you keep turn out to be awesome surprises, and increase my sales! 9.

I do adore you all, thanks for yet another great year and so many reasons to be happy!

Things we believe: One piece of chocolate cake has half the calories of two pieces of chocolate cake Be original Share the credit LOVE IS POWER Don’t go to bed with dirty dishes in the sink Never use a big word when a diminutive expression will do It’s not what you say, it’s what people hear People will forget what you said, but not how you made them feel A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow All pets are adopted Wise men change their minds Simplify, then add lightness When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go Fair and softly go far Take the time to make it super bad-ass Life is short, but wide DID YOU KNOW Blue Q is the largest private employer of individuals with disabilities in our community?

Yes, we are. For the past 15 years, Blue Q has had the pleasure and incredible benefits of an employment program for individuals with disabilities. Thanks to the Berkshire County ARC, which operates a program called the Advantage Employee Network, individuals with developmental disabilities are placed and supported in productive, satisfying jobs in the real world.

Roy culls images from his extensive collection of ephemera, books and scrap material and also photographs elements for his artwork.

EVERYTHING WE MAKE IS MADE ETHICALLY. For 25 years, Blue Q has been collaborating with quality factories for the thousands of products we have designed. We’re proud to say we’re unusually involved in this regard; the “fit and finish” of everything we make has to be highly awesome, and Blue Q-ish. After all, we print “Very Best Quality” on everything we make. But more importantly, we’re committed to partnering with expert factories who are good to their employees and the environment. We visit and vet everyone we work with, and vouch for their integrity, so you can, too.
