Have you ever wondered what we really do every day?
We’re often asked, so we thought we’d put it out there for those that are truly curious.
Yes, we supply branded merchandise – but anyone can take your logo and drop it on a hat, right? So how exactly are we different? What sets us apart from others that offer promotional products?
Our niche is to source product that is specific to your brand and your current marketing needs; to find quality merchandise that features your corporate brand in a way that excites; assisting you with swag that your recipients want to keep, and that will remind them of the awesomeness of your company. We are consulting, every step of the way.
We ask questions to make sure we understand your overall company mission because that’s the foundation to everything you do. Only then can we really understand your ultimate goals for each marketing project. Once we know your business and project intentions, we work to source unique products that exemplify those corporate objectives. With over 150 years of collective experience on our team, we like to think we’ve got it down to a bit of a science.
It’s a daily mission for us – we live and breathe “swag” 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Different factories visit our office nearly every week with new and/or top-selling merchandise. We also brainstorm as a team every week to really broaden the playing field, because we believe in collaborative results.
We look at retail trends. What is the hottest new thing? Sometimes it’s a product, sometimes a color, and sometimes it’s an actual experience that develops in the retail market. Whatever that may be, it creates the FOMO that brings energy – we love to recreate that excitement for brand awareness.
In addition, at the beginning of every year, we attend PPAI Expo, the largest tradeshow for our industry. It’s always in fabulous Las Vegas, where we meet with thousands of factories on the show floor to research new and captivating products for our clients, often fresh off the design floor.
It’s our passion – to take your marketing efforts to new heights by offering products that engage and excite your audience – whether that means internal employees or external clients/prospects. Let us do the work for you.
We consider ourselves an extension of your current marketing team.
