How the business was founded
When looking to buy a house one fall evening in 1988, finding it challenging to see the house numbers, Jim asked himself why don't houses have numbers that light up? With market research and some ingenuity, Creative Concepts & Consulting Corporation® was established in 1993 with a working concept of making it easier to find house numbers at night for emergency personnel, FedEx Ground, friends and even the pizza driver! On May 9th, 2000 they were delighted to find out when the United States Patent & Trademark Office issued a utility patent #6,060,838 for the illuminated invention. In 2000 with the economy in recession, finding it hard to obtain capital to bring the invention to market, Jackie and Jim started selling promotional products and logo apparel from their basement and 2003 Creative Concepts relocated to an office building in Glastonbury CT.

Wanting to give back with a vision to create a foundation to help children with special needs in tribute to their son Nathan, in 2005 Jim and Jackie launched "GivaGeta" which is fun ways to Give and Get smiles and share kind messages and values.

Creative Concepts counts their blessings and readily acknowledges Jim's Godmother Barbara Wilkes for lending her experience in getting started and to Bob LaPerla, Glastonbury resident, friend and owner of LaPerla's Fine Jewelers in West Hartford for their first order.
While visiting their large showroom in Glastonbury people are often heard to say, "I feel like a kid in a candy store". When you are there, be sure to ask Jackie or Jim to show you the working prototypes for their Illuminated House Numbers and get your complimentary GivaGeta Kindness Message Pen.
We look forward to being of service.
