Our journey to the Promotional Products industry began in our first full year in business. During the holiday season of 2019, we started to fulfill large volume orders for direct clients who reached out inquiring about our volume capabilities. We successfully completed those orders and it certainly perked our ears to the opportunity in the promo products space, but then came the global pandemic at the beginning of 2020. During that time, we had to shut the doors of our retail store and it was at that point that we needed to find a new avenue for consistent revenue in order to keep the lights on. Luckily, we had something in mind!
Starting around March of 2020, we began to work consistently with SwagUp. One to two orders turned into four to five orders a month and we were beginning to cook with fire. As we grew our promotional products channel we started to expand our partnership network. Along the way, we learned many hard lessons and saw a ton of great success. In growing our business we were able to keep the lights on and create new employment opportunities and build our amazing team. Along the journey, we have stuck to one main principle which is to be as customer obsessed as possible. We believe in our products and we are constantly looking for ways to improve and grow our product line, but we can’t do any of that unless we stand behind our mission with solid customer support.
In 2021, we started to take our business to the next level in the promotional products space by joining the two leading industry organizations in PPAI (797124) and ASI (49451). Since joining those organizations, we have been connected with some amazing people within the promotional products industry and our business has continued to explode to the point that we have decided to solely focus on this channel as our main line of business moving forward. In May of this year, we opened up a new fulfillment facility that can handle not only our plant fulfillment but other dropshipping projects as well! Our main goal in the promotional products industry is to provide sustainable wellness products for people’s workspaces because we believe we can all better our work environments, and t-shirts and pens aren’t going to do much for that cause.
As we continue through the end of 2021 and into 2022, we look forward to connecting with more people from around the industry as we build on what we have already accomplished in the last couple of years. As we like to say, we will continue to provide extraordinary gifts for extraordinary teams!
