    Please bring back the samples. But, don't make it that you have to order $100.00 or more to take advantage. The $25.00 range was perfect. I tried out some garbage bags that weren't very thick and wouldn't work for us. I liked that there were multiple items that you could choose from however there has only been 1 item on the page.

    I would love to be able to purchase gift cards from Quill to other retailers such as Macys, Target, Best Buy, etc. I would also like to be able to purchase Mastercard or Visa gift cards.  This would save me so much time!

    As a marketing director I am always looking for a next great promo item. So many sites offer samples of the items before you purchase them and yet Quill does not. I would like to to use Quill for all our office needs, however, if I cannot see something first hand, I will not order it. We need to be able to check for quality, color, size, etc., before we order. If you would please consider offering samples of the promotonal items so that we can test before we buy it would be great. 
    Making the samples free is also a must!

    I’m always interested in new and fun office products, but don’t want to spend the money on a product before I try it.  There are so many subscription boxes out there today, such as Birchbox, Graze, BarkBox, that I wonder if Quill could offer a subscription box that includes a variety of products in sample form so I can try them before I buy them.  I’d be willing to pay a nominal fee to receive the box each month or quarter, as long as the items in the box were items we could use on a regular basis.

    I like to try samples of products to see if they work in my office environment.  I'd like to be able to buy a sample of the product.  I don't need to get a free sample with a certain purchase amount, but rather a sample of a product to try out for a fair price that can be added to my order.

    Our company orders from Quill at least once a week and we spend quite a bit of money each time, but it seems like every time we order we will get a coupon the following day for one of Quill's promotional gifts. I would like to see Quill honor the gift even if I placed the order the previous day, especially if my total purchase meets the requirements. For example, if I place my order on Monday and it totals $400.00 and then I receive the promotional gift email on Tuesday I think Quill should honor the promotion gift.

    If there was an option to give my Quill cash to my favorite charity, I would do it!  Create an enviromnent for people to bless others by using your company to facilitate donations.

    1.  Quill allows customer to setup their charity of choice as a recipient.
    2.  In the check out window, show the charities logo as part of the check out process (use their logo and say "Thank you for supporting your favorite charity through Quill)
    3.  Send email notices of the amounts the business has donated through their puchasing history.
    4.  Give incentives to the customer to use Quill that benefit their charity.
    5.  Make it an option for the charity to receive CASH from Quill in honor of the customer.

    We love the free gifts, especially the cookware that comes with the ink and toner.  They make great "surprise" gifts for the employees but it would be great if the greater gifts were not only for the higher priced ink and toner but for the whole shopping experience.  There are times our company will spend a few hundred dollars but it is not on ink and toner.  I just say spread the wealth a bit to the other products.

    We shouldn't have to pay an extra $20.00 to see a final proof of our cutom orders. If we have designed it through the website (ie. pens, mugs) we should have a final proof automatically sent to us at no charge. It's pretty much fool-proof.

    Our county does not take the plastic air bags used in the packaging process at our recycling center.  It would be nice if Quill would offer to send us a box we could fill with deflated air bags that we could return to you or someone else at no cost, otherwise all that plastic ends up in the landfill.

    Send us coupons that we can use. I don't purchase any snack items or water from Quill. Forget the safety coupons. Quill moniters our purchasing anyway so send us those coupons and have the other random coupons in a coupon redeeming window. For the odd chance I do purchase from those items.

    Maybe still have the option to purchase bulk items in less then 100 items at a time.  Example. Plastic Hurricane cups..... Maybe 144 quantity is ok for a bar... But if you are having a party maybe quantity 25 or 50??  Why soooo many.  I have a party for work and 144 is way too many.  Maybe cut some of the bulk items in half.  I will have to purchase from a different company becuase we don't plan on ever using these again and don't plan on having a turn out of over 100 people.  50 is our plan and less than that show up.  So my idea.... Cut down on the bulk even if lower quantity will be more expensive.

    Offer healthy food gifts instead of Candy and Sweets.  Many people like me who are trying to change our diets, eliminate sugar and eat heathy are not remotely interested in having those kinds of temptations around the office.  I would love to have an offer for some healthy alternative, however, Quill cash or percentage off usually wins over gift items.

    I would LOVE to see more Christmas items (mainly cards) that say "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays" or "Season Greetings." I understand Quill is trying to be poltically correct, but believe or not there are alot of Christain based companies that are still out there that would love to see more options.

    It would be nice if there were a place to get a sample of an item that you would like to see customized.  I have gotten a lot of awards, and some fall very short of their pictures.

    We use a lot of shipping boxes, and can't find the ones we need through Quill.  It would be great if we could special order the sizes we need, if we didn't require them in a hurry.  The shipping costs we pay with Uline are astronomical!!!!

How do voting and comments work? 

As a registered user, you can vote on every idea once.  A voting icon is shown next to the idea. Just click to vote on your favorites. It’s that simple.  Each vote is worth 10 points.  A vote up will add ten points and a vote down will take away 10 points.  The idea’s score can be found beneath the voting icons. The higher the points the more popular the idea is.

Our site moderators will leave comments as well.  These users are identified with a User-added image icon.

Does every idea get a response?

Due to the amount of posts, we won’t be able to respond to every posting. If your idea is moved to the formal review step, you can expect to receive e-mail updates from us.  We will keep you informed if your idea is recommended for implementation and notify you of any status changes. 

Do I get recognized if my idea is selected?

If your idea is implemented, we may give you credit on the site, but there is no monetary compensation. Take a look at our Terms and Conditions to learn more.

Is there a moderator on Quill Ideas?

Profanity will not be tolerated. A filter for profanity is in use. Ideas or comments that include profanity will be blocked from posting until the profanity is deleted.
