Pixologie RFP for Marketing Campaign

March 19th, 2015

Pixologie is seeking a company to produce our first marketing campaign. We are the first company of our kind in the country with a DIY studio location and we are a national leader in the photo organization field.

Pixologie services include photo sorting, restoration, scanning, slide, negative, videotape and film conversion. Products include custom photo books and slideshows. In addition, consumers can take advantage of do-it-yourself options including open studio time, classes, workshops, photo gatherings and retreats.

Our two major challenges are lack of consumer awareness of photo organizing services and the long sales cycle of a prospective client from first hearing of our services to bringing their project to us.

Polka Heartland: Photographs by Dick Blau at MOWA

February 5th, 2015

Polka. It’s Wisconsin’s state dance, but it’s more than merely a musical genre—polka is a lively culture unto itself chock full of customs and personalities and lore. Today, polka is thriving in myriad and exciting ways. The Museum of Wisconsin Art (MOWA) is excited to announce the opening of Polka Heartland: Photographs by Dick Blau. On view through March 29, Polka Heartland offers a window into a vibrant world full of foot-stomping, accordion-squeezing, horn-blowing energy. The 30 photographs in the exhibit capture both the traditional spirit and the current live performances of a simultaneously enduring and developing musical format.

“Recently on the television show Jeopardy contestants were asked to name the state dance of Wisconsin. The answer was, of course, polka. It’s undeniably part of our heritage,” says Laurie Winters, MOWA Executive Director | CEO. “Yet polka is also changing in interesting ways that reflect evolving demographics as well as a younger dance club audience that showcases who we are today. Polka is new again and Dick Blau’s photography captures this changing culture in some really interesting ways.”

“I got into polka music by chance and by design,” says photographer Dick Blau. “I developed a fascination with a certain kind of art – photographing the moments when ‘ordinary’ people gather to perform and play, such as in a gospel church, at a Romani wedding, amidst a Dionysian carnival, and, of course, at a polka dance. Polka Heartland is the result of this fascination.”

What's in a name?

January 29th, 2015

At Kloiebr Jewelers we pride ourselves on not carrying any brand name jewelry. Because in the end, you're paying for a name, not necessarily a quality piece of jewelry. We've been in business for almost 90 years and never carried the big names. We work with smaller companies and our goldsmiths to bring you unique pieces of jewelry and custom designs. When you purchase from Kloiber Jewelers you also benefit from personalized customer service and continued care. You won't get that from purchasing a designer ring, online.
