Home / About Us
We have been manufacturing and supplying the floral industry with a quality product that is affordable, easy to use, attractive, and complimentary to floral design for over thirty years.
It first started in Texas in 1978 when Carolyn Stoughton realized there was a need for florists that wasn’t being met. While helping a florist during football mum season working in the mess of glitter and glue, an innovative idea was born. A new adhesive, peel off press on, non-shed glitter lettering was introduced and immediately welcomed by the floral trade. At an FTD trade show, one florist was so impressed she comically remarked,
“It’s the best invention since the wheel!”
The company’s beginning was modest, but with Barrie Stoughton’s sales talents and Carolyn’s creativity and desire to “free” the florist from a messy, smelly, time-consuming production, the company grew rapidly.
Over the years, Barrie Stoughton’s charismatic, fun personality at the trade shows created a lot of positive buzz and entertainment as he was a friend to everyone. Many of our loyal customers remember his signature “GOOD MORNING” shout upon entering the show.
From those early days it has been our honor to keep our customers happy and satisfied with an excellent product and service that is guaranteed and goes unmatched! Our biggest compliment is welcoming new customers simply by word of mouth and referral.
Whether you are involved in floral or craft, you’ve come to the right place where it all began. We have beautiful and exciting adhesive products in a variety of colors especially made for you!
Your floral designs and craft projects deserve the best – they deserve Colorco!
