What We Do

Design

Taking cues from emerging trends we look to design artwork that will put your brand in the fashion forward category. The best way to communicate your brand message is to make promotional products that stand out in a crowd and become part of your customers every day use. Please see our online catalog for examples. 

Source

We have a variety of sources we can search to find the perfect promotional product or apparel type.  We specialize in finding the high quality fit and fabrics people have come to expect in apparel. We also work with any other product category you can think of including pens, koozies, hats, stickers etc. 

E-Commerce Set Up

As a Shopify partner we are familiar with the platform that will allow you to increase sales by offering customers an online alternative. 

Online Order Fulfillment

Instead of wasting time packing up individual orders, let us do it for you. Save time you could be re-investing in your business. We will bill you monthly only for orders shipped.

Tour Support and Forecasting

With a history of retail buying services, we can watch your inventory levels and alert you when re-orders are needed. This saves time and money, which is especially important to touring bands who need to keep costs trimmed down.
