We Made a Shiny New Website Just for YOU!: QLP’s New Website

Hi friends! Have you been to our website lately? If not, you are in for quite a treat! And if you have, well, you may have noticed things are looking a little LOT different these days!

I’m here today to break down all of the cool new features on our site, and I’m really excited! Why don’t you start by checking out this great video made by my friends over in the media department? They’ll go over most of the things I’m about to tell you!

For starters, our refreshed website is a lot easier on the eyes.

Keep in mind, this is our first total cosmetic redesign since 2003! Since this update was long overdue, we pulled out all the stops to make our website sleeker, cleaner, and more intuitive than ever before. Just take a look at this baby!

One of MY personal favorite new additions in the new design is that when you hover over my head with your mouse, I get to share a special message with you! You know me, I’m pretty chatty. So I have all sorts of fun things to say, like this:

So don’t be shy!

Moving right along, this update ain’t all about physical appearance. We have all kinds of new features and functions to make shopping for promo items easier for you – including three patented new search functions.

Now, onto those new search functions!

We’ve added several new search filters to help locating the perfect promo item easier than ever before. Some of these new filters are even complete firsts in the promo product industry!

priceThe first of those new tools is our price and quantity filter, which allows you to enter in your budget requirements and the quantity of items you’re looking for to narrow the search results down to only the products that fit your budget. Most other sites only allow you to either search by bulk price or the “as low as” price, but we’ve made it simple to locate items in your price range at the quantity you need!

deliveryThe next feature we’ve added to make your life easier is the option to search our catalog by delivery date. We’ve taken out all of the guesswork so that calculating production and shipping time no longer falls on your shoulders. All you have to do is enter the date you need your items on your doorstep, and we’ll only show you the items that can get to you on time!

decorationLastly, we know how important it is that your logo looks as good as possible. Does your logo need to be printed in 3 colors? Well, not all of our products allow for multiple color imprints, so we’ve added a new search filter that allows you to search our products by imprint type and the number of imprint colors you need.

We’ll go into more detail on those brand new features over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned!

In addition to those three new options, you now have the option to filter your results by item color, product type, industry, material, and even USA made! All of those filters make it easier and faster for you to find the perfect promo item. You’ll be able to narrow down what could have been a list of 500+ items that meet your needs to a much more manageable search result of 10-15 items. Phew! Muuuuuch better!

Maybe you’re not searching for a particular item, and you’re just browsing for ideas. We’ve made that easier, too!

Allow me to introduce you to our new browsing options.

You’ve always had the option to browse our items by product category, but now you can also browse by industry, holidays, or causes.

browse by

Just hover over one of the options in that top navigation menu and a handy little drop-down will appear with a list of possible industries, holidays, and causes to choose from.

So now if you are hosting a fundraising event for Breast Cancer Awareness Month but aren’t sure which promo items to choose for your event, you can easily find product suggestions! All you have to do is select the “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” option from the “Causes” dropdown menu, and you’ll get an entire list of items perfectly suited for breast cancer awareness.

In addition to those new categories, we’ve also improved our related item feature on each product page. Now when you view any item page on our site, there will be a list of related items at the bottom of the page that you can filter based on items that are similar, items that are less expensive, items that have a lower minimum quantity, or items that can get to you faster than the item you are viewing.

related items

The last feature that I’m going to talk about today is our new and improved footer!

On our old website if you needed some information and resources, you really had to dig. Now we’ve put several of our best resources right in the footer of every page in our site! So whether you want to know more about our shipping information, need some tips on vector artwork, or are looking for our PMS ink colors, all of that information and more is just one click away.

That’s all I have for today, folks, but I’ve just barely scratched the surface of all of the cool, helpful new things our website has to offer! Why don’t you go ahead and check it out for yourself? And don’t forget to stay tuned the rest of this month for even more details about how to use all of our new features!

What do you think of our new site? What’s your favorite new feature? Let us know in the comments!

Bubba

Bubba is the Quality Logo Products mascot. He may have started out as "just a stress ball," but he's come a long way since the company's launch in 2003. Bubba has been immortalized in numerous vector artwork designs for internal and external promotions, and you can see him change outfits on the Quality Logo Products homepage whenever a holiday rolls around. Oh, and he thinks pants are for the birds. You can connect with Bubba on

    The new website looks amazing and the functionality is better than ever. There are so many search functions that it’s impossible not to find exactly what you’re looking for. Want a specific water bottle ounce size? No problem! Need a specific color tote bag? Piece of cake! Want to know which tumbler offers full color imprint? You got it! Quality Logo Products just took they’re new website up to “11”. Promotional product shopping should be fun and easy. This new website does both. You will not be disappointed.

      Erik is spot on with his comment about the search function. I love that you can search by any and every criteria the item can be classified by. My favorite criteria of the search functions is the “When do you need it by”. It helps a lot when you have 300+ options and some don’t have a rush production option.

      The Spinal Tap reference is pretty accurate of how QLP operates…..always at 11.

  2. Kat D.

    I <3 the site redesign!! My FAVORITE change is the search ability to narrow down your options. For instance, I can find a red tumbler available with a full color imprint in just a few clicks. *LOVE* Makes my day so much easier and opens up more time for me to spend with my happy customers. Go Bubba!

    The QLP website has always been one of the best in the industry. Now it’s so intuitive it makes finding exactly what you want almost effortless. You can easily navigate to the products you are looking for and if you have any questions that you can’t find the answers to or need some opinions on the products just contact one of the AMAZING QLP sales reps to talk to someone in person. :)

  4. Matt

    I really didn’t get the chance to work with the old website very much but the new website is AWESOME. All of the search differentiation makes it super easy to find anything you might need.

  5. Jon

    I am loving the new website, and so are the customers. Our new search function is so intuitive, I feel like we must have stolen technology from Google.
    My customer’s are especially digging being able to seach by color of the piece – so often we used to have to look at each item’s page to find out if a product came in a preferred color … now all they have to do is pick a product type and select a color and they can see everything available.

  6. Greg

    Great blog! The new site is very user friendly. A must see!

  7. Jaimie

    You guys did such a great job on this website. This makes everything so much easier for us and the customers when trying to get the PERFECT product for our customer’s events. Sometimes it can be difficult when staying within a budget, but also meeting an event date for a client. With the help from the new website, though, taking care of our customers’ needs will be so much easier! :)

  8. Chase

    The new website is the greatest thing since sliced bread! Not only does this help our customers find the products that they are looking for more quickly! BUT, it helps us Sales Reps assist our clients in a more efficient manor. The new options for find items that we can print full color on might be one of the biggest improvements (IMO). The new trends of how Logos are created have gone toward full color images. Finding the products that suit the customer’s logo is essential to making sure a promotion goes off without a hitch! I personally love the new site! I hope other do as well!!!

  9. Rondell Caraos

    Our new website is really awesome and very detailed! I work with it everyday and find something new and cool everyday! My favorite part of it is the detail for searching items that would meet your Event Date, budget, color, etc! Truly awesome!

  10. AG (A.K.A. Myrtle)

    I must say… seeing the company evolve over the years has been quite the experience. Who knew we’d come so far from the humble beginnings at NCC :) The new site is absolutely fantastic! Search functions, are accurate, quick and give results that meet the needs of today’s (and tomorrows) online promo shoppers :) I may stare at a computer screen all day… but it’s sunny and the sky is blue 365 days a year in QLP land :) HOLLA!

  11. Chuck Sullivan

    ALL OTHER WEBSITES BOW DOWN TO US! One of the features I like the most is for example you need a blue stress ball. Type that in the search bar, and all the stress balls that come in blue actually show up in their blue color so you can see them all at once instead of having to click in and out of each item to see it in blue. If you have an event and are thinking it’s impossible to find something to hand out with you logo on it, give us a call. We will make it happen!!

    • Alan

      Searching for specific product colors used to take a lot of my time…now it doesn’t!

  12. Angie

    Way to go team! Thanks for all of the hard work. We always appreciate the on-going site improvements, as do our customers. The search functions really do make our job easier.

  13. Serenity

    I love the new site! I think it is so user friendly! Everything looks crisp! TOTAL GAME CHANGER with the item specification search fields! SO great! The website instructional video is pretty fantastic as well! ;)
