To say that Seattle is a “little” football crazy right now is like saying that M.C. Hammer’s pants were a little baggie. We are a city sieged by normally sane folks, happily dressed in blue and green clothing, with faces painted, and hair coloring that looks like the love child of the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch. And it is pretty wonderful actually. Seattle is not known for big sports with a capital S, that gain national attention. We are more known for the length of time it takes us to order our morning espresso, but it doesn’t diminish our hometown team love. What is most wonderful about all of this is that whether the team is doing well or not, this is just what we do—we our love our teams—consistently with pride.
I think consistency is the key to most things in life. Keep at it, do it well, and things generally work out in your favor. As a packaging company that has been around since 1985, we have seen a lot of players come into our little arena and offer similar product lines. So what sets PBi apart? Our consistency. To quality, to service, to innovation. We continually seek ways to maintain our high-level of excellence in our product lines, to improve and grow our service to our customers, and invest time and resources toward the goal of truly sustainable packaging options. We are a company of local people who take pride in what we do and enjoy it. We consistently give back to the industries we serve and our communities. We wear blue and green, we paint our faces, and we love what we do—we love the “game” we are in.
Come by and meet us if you’re in Seattle or catch us at one of the many tradeshows we exhibit at, we would love the chance to say hello, share a smile, and hopefully teach a little about packaging. Blue and green face paint optional.
