[SOLVED] Command to Bulk Archive / Compress

I'm looking for a command that will compress every folder within a directory separately with the name of each archive reflecting the original folder name. I know that

tar czvf example.tar.gz example/

will compress an entire folder. However, I have not found a command to bulk archive. Is there such a command?
