History of Innovative Catalog Covers


Since 2011, Innovative Office Solutions has been featuring company employees on the catalog cover and marketing initiatives used throughout the year. Each summer the team heads to the studio for a full day of outfit changes, makeup and striking poses! For our 2018 theme – the Gold In Globe Awards, we are featuring our very own Account Executive, Director of Furniture, and System Analyst on the catalog front cover. Check out the fun we had creating this masterpiece!



Now.. let’s take a stroll down memory lane!


2017  | Clued In

We took the beloved game of Clue and brought it to the modern workplace. Each month we featured a Clue character to represent one of our category offerings, oh and we couldn’t forget the true essence of the game – solving the crime each month!


2016 | All IN 

The All In 2016 theme included fun campaigns to reduce “election fatigue” and provided our customers with solutions to make businesses thrive. Bringing the theme full circle, we incorporated our All In theme into numerous marketing initiatives, culture in the office, events/activities our company is involved in and so much more!


2015 | Personalized Productivity 

The theme for 2015 was all about Personalized Productivity. Customizing office solutions to increase productivity for our customers was at the forefront. We selected 10 office personas and created a highly unscientific online quiz to determine your office persona! We found that the Coffee Fanatic had the highest result for our quiz takers.


2014 | Innovative On Tour

The theme for 2014 was Innovative On Tour – showcasing a few of our many employees that take center stage and perform for our customers. We printed multiple versions of the cover to feature more employees and put a few more faces to names. Equipped with Post-it Note covered guitars, banjos, fiddles, and mandolins, our team is ready to perform for you. Are you ready to come on tour with us in 2014?


2013 | Hometown Teams

For our 2013 covers, we decided to showcase a few of our local sports partnerships. We’re the official office products supplier to the Minnesota Wild, Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins. They’re our hometown teams and we are your hometown supplier of office products, so we brought that idea to life on the 2013 covers.


2012 | Innovative GQ


In 2012 we decided to feature two “Best Dressed Men” in Post-it Note suits, inspired by a GQ magazine cover. The men featured in 2012 were Account Executive John Townsend, and Director of Educational Furniture Bob Nelson.


2011 | Post-It Fashion

In 2011, we thought we’d mix things up a bit and instead of pictures of office products on the covers, we’d feature our employees in a fun way. Our 2011 cover featured Account Executive Sarah Johnson showing off a custom made Post-it Note dress. This cover was inspired by a Vogue magazine style, and a dress that another Account Executive, Karla Gunderson, made for Sarah to wear in an employee “fashion runway contest.”

Thanks for taking a stroll down memory lane! Join us in 2018 for a year full of Gold In Globe Awards!
