DYR – Diamond Acrylic

I went to the St. Louis City Museum not too long ago. If you have kids, or are a big kid yourself, I highly recommend it. It is basically a giant indoor/outdoor playground with interactive (and educational) exhibits.

But what in the world does the City Museum have to do with DYR’s Diamond Acrylic?

Well, when I walked up to the front desk, I noticed a few things.

  1. The person behind the counter taking payment and giving out tickets.
  2. The glass panel separating us.
  3. The two desk signs. One talked about how they were rated as one of St. Louis’ top attractions while asking for us to go online & rate them on the that same site. The other was promoting “The Roof.” It seems if you pay a little more, you can get into another area of the museum that is only open during certain times of the year, depending on the weather.

How smart is that? The desktop signage didn’t take up much room, looked professional, and caught my attention.

Picking the Right Present

Posted by Kristina Hublar on Dec 26, 2018 8:12:00 AM

Estimated Read Time: 8 Minutes


The holidays are finally here (and over for some of us).

The eggnog was bought, the halls were decorated, and the endless holiday parties were (mostly) attended.

With all that running around, from setting up your out of office to wrapping up any last-minute projects, I want to take a moment to discuss one of the most thought-about subjects this season – presents.

Yes, you heard me.

We want to end the year with specials that make you feel special (it’s the holidays, we can be corny).

Don’t Fear the Tariffs

Posted by Kristina Hublar on Dec 11, 2018 1:57:00 PM

I was inspired by Dave’s blog – in topic and imagery. The main image of the blog has a reaper, which is rather poignant for his argument.

Despite the perfect symbolism for the blog, I can’t help the Blue Oyster Cult song “Don’t Fear the Reaper” playing in my head each time I look at the photo.

Thanksgiving – Ways to Show Your Employees You Care

Posted by Kristina Hublar on Nov 20, 2018 1:52:00 PM

Estimated Read Time: 10 Minutes

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Having too much turkey and pumpkin pie? Spending time with your friends and family? Rushing from house to house, trying to make all the different get-togethers while wondering why you do this to yourself? Or is Thanksgiving just the day before Black Friday?

Thanksgiving means something different for many people; however, it did not start as all of those things. Thanksgiving started as the most basic definition – giving thanks.

Being thankful and celebrating what you have by giving thanks for it.

That’s the definition I want to remind everyone about – be thankful for what you have; whether that’s your friends, your family, your health, a roof over your head, or even your employees. Everyone has something to be thankful for.

Meet The Box

Have you met The Box yet? It’s a nice box.

But seriously, this is not a box that you ship things in and then hand over to your cat. The Box is new to our lineup and has quickly become a popular DYR item.

This could be because of its ability to define a brand in a small but professional manner or due to its recognition prowess while taking up minimal desk space.

Storytelling might have changed through the years, but it certainly is not dead. Every person, brand, and product has a story behind it. Whether it’s about a group of people starting a company in a garage and growing into a multi-billion dollar company or if it’s an artist inspired by the world around him with an entrepreneurial spirit; every brand has a story to tell.

 Why do you ever need a plaque?

  • Giving one to an employee to recognize their years of service or for a job well done?

Business Christmas Gifts

Posted by Kristina Hublar on Sep 18, 2018 12:49:00 PM

The passage of time seems to speed up once school starts back up. We jump from bathing suits to hanging up Halloween decorations and then we are having family over for Thanksgiving. In between it all, we’re rushing around doing our typical day-today, holiday shopping sprees, and all of the family and friends’ gatherings. During that time, when everyone is so wrapped up and sprinting between social engagements, Christmas pounces.

No one has time for the impending holiday, at yet it’s the holiday we all prepare for and buy, sell, and sell more. It’s one of the most profitable times of the year for a reason.

So, what are you doing for Christmas? Have you talked with your partners, contacts, and clients yet? If not, then you’re already putting yourself at a disadvantage this season.
