In the Promotional Products Business New Ideas are Your Life Blood!
Let’s face it, your competition is not the guy across town sitting in a similar office, a guy that is driving around with a bag full of pen and mug samples. No your competition is 4 imprint.com !
You Can Defeat 4 Imprint. Here’s How!
Let’s be honest, if you’re client is looking for crappy coffee mugs or leaky pens they are just as likely to go to 4 Imprint. That is what 4 Imprint (and others like them) do really well. They slap a logo on a basic promotional product and the buy does not need to get up from her desk.

Here are a few innovative ideas that can be logo’d and sold! I guarantee 4 Imprint does not have them and you will look awesome if you show them! Call 1-888-908-1481 or email us for info. [email protected]
