Kathryn is now the creative force in our Graphic Design Department. By providing Graphics in-house we are able to do custom design, make changes to existing artwork or use the artwork as is, to ensure the best visual impact on the promotional products we sell. This is a service that makes us stand out from other promotional distributors.
We also ensure that the artwork is in the camera-ready format that manufacturers require to produce the specific imprint layout. This saves our clients time as they get to proof the artwork before it goes to the vendor and it saves time in that the vendor has the artwork ready to proceed.
We are members of SAGE Technologies Inc. All the products we supply our clients with are top rate and we have an excellent rapport/relationship with all the vendors that we choose to use.
We would love to hear from you. Please feel free to call or e-mail us.
