Big Dot Culture

Occasionally we take time out of our busy day of providing you with impeccable customer service and unique and original products to get a little wild! One of our company motto is ‘work hard, play hard’ and we do both down to a T. Sometimes we bust out the sidewalk chalk and cover the parking lot with our artistic creations, cram into a bus and take in a ballgame or play games in our break room. Whatever we’re up to here at work, we always strive to give you the best possible customer experience we can offer...and still have fun!

    Menomonie Wisconsin Party Room: Big Dot of Happiness Local Events

    This canvas painting event was done in our Owl Girl party theme to celebrate Paige's 10th birthday. With painting instruction for 8, complete photo booth, balloons, tableware, custom decorations and party hats, as well as cupcakes and snacks, this event was a total hit!

    The best part was seeing the smiles on everyone's face. The girls loved the private art class and the option to make their painting YOU-nique while Mom loved showing up to an impressive birthday party that her daughter will never forget.

    May marked the 15 year anniversary for Big Dot of Happiness and because we are party fanatics, that meant ONE WHOLE MONTH of celebrations!

    We began with a smashing good time and let you vote on who had the biggest office faux pas. The "winner" was met with a cake in the face. But, because we are Big Dot and do everything bigger and bolder, the rest of the guilty Big Dotters met their match with a cake as well.

    Then came your turn to show off your favorite cake smash photos followed by our own cake eating contest. Wow...we really like cake!

    Next was a few weeks of reminiscing and looking back at how far we have come. Big Dotters are a unique bunch and we love any excuse to celebrate. Check it out and see what we have been up to.

    Finally, we ended the month with an employee picnic and Scott, our fearless leader, grilling everyone lunch. What will year 16 and beyond bring? Who knows - but you can be sure we always have a surprise hidden up our sleeve at Big Dot.

    Customer Moments with Yvette #BigDot #HappyDot

    Did you know about our brand new updated Concierge program?? It is awesome!! We have all new colors to choose from and font choices. You can change any of our personalized items colors or fonts. For example we just had a customer call and stated that she was viewing her invitation proof and she was disappointed that her font was not easy to read. She has several older guests that would have trouble reading the invitation. We simply switched her font to Centry from the CK Daydream (that is a bit more whimsy) and made the text larger and it was much better for her. She saw her proof and was ecstatic that they were easy to read and we got them shipped to her right away. She also emailed us once she received her invitations and said several of her guests had called her to let her know that the invitations were really nice too…concierge success!

    As for color changes- if you need a purple monkey- we can do it. The only items we cannot change the color of is our plates, napkins and cups. We have had some amazing changes happen that have turned out so nice for customers- and we really owe that gratitude to our designers who do amazing work. Pretty much anything you can dream with our items- we can do. For example- we just had a customer use our Blue Elephant Birthday Theme- but added one of our cross designs to it. I have included a picture below to check out. Adorable idea!

    We look forward to working with you to plan your next special event and don’t forget to checkout our Concierge program too!

    It sure has been a wild ride with 15 years of celebrations and adventures. Our Throwback Thursday company photos are just a sampling of what goes on inside The Dot.

    BUT - we wouldn't be us without you, our Boss. Thank you for helping to make us who we are. Without the inspiration of our Hostess Heroes everywhere, we wouldn't be here. It is you, our boss, who drives us to do better and be remarkable. Everything we do is for you - to help make life's occasions fun. To make memories. And to celebrate all the joy in everyday. Thank you.

    Throwback Thursday Big Dot Of Happiness Company Photos #BigDot #HappyDot #TBT

    There are three things to learn from our Throwback Thursday of photos:

    1. Be prepared ... for ANYTHING.

    2. Have costumes. LOTS of costumes ... and hats.

    3. We have FUN - and that's what makes us BIG DOT.

    This year marks a huge milestone for Big Dot of Happiness - 15 years of celebrating life's moments by providing YOU-niqe and original party supplies to Hostess Heroes everywhere. We have gathered our favorite memories to share, a sort of sneak peek into The Dot and how we celebrate.

    Big Dot of Happiness Celebrates 15 Years - Our Favorite Memories #BigDot #HappyDot

    "Hearing the Boss Man play his favorite football team's rally song over the PA before each big match-up."

    "When Steven surprised Sherri by jumping out of a box wrapped in bubble wrap - Absolutely hysterical!"

    Big Dot of Happiness Celebrates 15 Years - Our Favorite Memories #BigDot #HappyDot

    "I've been at Big Dot for a little over eight years, so there are many memorable moments: the time I dressed up as a pregnant momma and went bowling (much harder than I could ever imagine), a blindfolded bus trip that took us to the mall, madly grabbing for dolla-dolla bills in a money machine and company-wide dancing to the tootie ta. For me, there is not one particular memory that I hold near and dear to my heart, but a particular place... the Creative Room. It became my home away from home, a place that brought out the crazy (fun) in all of its residents. A place where an afternoon Flarp dance could relieve all the stress. (Side note: never heard of Flarp? Do yourself a favor and get some. You're welcome.) When the days got long and someone needed a break, or a little inspiration, an impromptu fashion show occurred. What are these fashion shows? Grab whatever you could find: some fabric-turned-babushka, a Funfari paper plate crown, monkey rattles as a belt, then strut your stuff down the runway. By now you might be thinking, "When do they work?" We work extremely hard, but also know how to play hard  (company value #3). A large part of the reason I love my job is the people I do, and have, worked with. We make a great team. One last note: What happens in the Creative Room, stays in the Creative Room."

    Big Dot of Happiness Celebrates 15 Years - Our Favorite Memories #BigDot #HappyDot

    "My favorite memory is when we were surprised with a road trip to Eau Claire. We were blindfolded and ended up at the Oakwood Mall, and told we had money to spend and we had one hour to do it! I bought a special necklace in memory of my Dad who had just passed away. What a generous, fun gesture provided to the Big Dot employees."

    "When my team dress up like bees for my birthday (my nickname is 'Bee'), gave me a black & yellow tutu and a tiara, and let me be "Queen Bee" for the day. Amazing ladies I work with!"

    Big Dot of Happiness Celebrates 15 Years - Our Favorite Memories #BigDot #HappyDot

    "When Beth put me in a box and told Steve to carry the box to ship out. He was questioning why it was so heavy, then opened it and Beth and I laughed because I was in there!"

    "Our trip to the National Stationary Show in NYC. It was my first real business trip & my first time on a plane ever! We got to see the FRIENDS fountain, Times Square, Rockefeller Center and the Empire State Building. We had a ton of fun! Oh, and the show was pretty great, too. :)"

    Big Dot of Happiness Celebrates 15 Years - Our Favorite Memories #BigDot #HappyDot

    "Hmmm…..it is not possible to pick one because over 15 years there have been so, so many! But certainly one of my most favorite memories would be the very first online order that Sherri received 15 years ago! I can remember it like it was yesterday. I was in the basement of our house doing sheetrock work, and remember Sherri running down the stairs with a piece of paper in her hand screaming 'Finally, finally, I got my first order!' She had worked for months without any success…..but now look at us 15 years later and 100,000’s of customers later…..WOW!"

    Customer Moments with Yvette #BigDot #HappyDot

    We just recently had a customer call in regarding our teddy bear theme. She was planning a baby shower for her best friend that will be taking place in a month. She needed invitations yesterday! She loved, loved the teddy bear theme but she was in desperate need of another color scheme. We do have our teddy bear available in pink, blue or yellow for a neutral party. Her best friend whom the party is for- her favorite color is red so our colors schemes did not work for her. She was very excited to hear we have a concierge service for a small design fee so it was no problem to switch the color for her. We took the Baby Girl Teddy Bear theme and changed the pink to red and also changed the accent colors to coordinate with her red, white and black scheme. The design turned out absolutely perfect for her and we were so thrilled to help!

    Concierge Service - Teddy Bear Invitations

    If you see a design you love and you really want the items to coordinate with your special event please call us! We would love to help you create the color scheme you need! The only items we unfortunately cannot change is the tableware that arrives at our facility complete. However we can give you lots of ideas to decorate your tables with your needed color scheme and make sure you are a hostess hero!

    Customer-Moments-with-Nicole

    We are so excited to introduce our newest member to our Expert Expert Team! Please welcome Nicole!! She comes from the design department just across the hall. We are so excited to have her join us and bring her brand new ideas!

    Here is the scoop on Nicole:

    HelloOoOoOoo! Let me fill you in about Me..

    I’m 27 years old, I have a 2 year old daughter, Avery, and another little girl on the way (due in January)!  I’ve grown up in this area but have traveled and moved around a bit to figure out where and what I want to be.  My boyfriend and I just bought a fixer upper home and have been very busy making it special.  I love to decorate, craft, bake, collect rocks, take photos, and be with my family.  Some random things most people don’t believe about me is that I REALLY enjoy listening to Tom Jones music, love Disney movies to the point of reciting, could eat pizza every day (or chocolate), would like to meet Goofy, I have a huge crush on the singer Chris Cornell and I love tulips.

    I’ve been part of the Big Dot family for years now.  I started off working in the Assembly/production area putting together orders then I went on to the Print Shop to help personalize, print, and cut orders.

    Since the beginning of December I have been training in Customer Service.  Woo!  It’s pretty exciting going through all the different areas, learning more, and helping be part of people’s parties in different ways.  I really enjoy coming to work every day, especially knowing everyone I work with personally.  Being able to work in now three departments has made me get to know everyone and have a lot of fun with what I do.

    This week I have been starting to take phone calls!  I have been pretty nervous but it’s been exciting!  It’s not as scary being in a customer service position when you do whatever you can to make the customer happy!  It’s actually really rewarding since most people get surprised or don’t believe what we are willing to do.  Hearing the sighs of relief or giggles of excitement and the heartfelt thank you's--is so gratifying it makes me want to try even harder to go above and beyond more and more!  It’s been exciting and I can’t wait to get more interesting phone calls to help and guide you the best way possible.
