Our story starts where most great stories start... in the basement! Founders Bret Bonnet (left) and Michael Wenger (right) were two broke college kids looking for their big break. They started Quality Logo Products® in the basement of Bret's house in Naperville, Illinois. They had one phone, spotty cable and power, and cats as their co-workers.
In 2007, Bret and Mike moved out of the basement and into their first real office at 724 N. HIghland Ave. in Aurora. They also started building their team by hiring more human employees, because you know, cats are cute, but they don't make the greatest sales representatives.
Today, Quality Logo Products® is 2 offices and 100+ employees strong. We've built a team of fun-loving, hard-working people who will make your experience ordering stress balls and water bottles fun, easy, and totally stress-free. Great people like this are hard to come by, but we're happy to hire only the best personalities on the planet!

Bret has been involved in the promotional products industry since he was 16. It's literally in his DNA.Bret's Bio
Bret has been involved in the promotional products industry since he was 16. It's literally in his DNA. He doesn't know how to do anything else. Bret never stops talking, and when he does, it's usually to hum the Meow Mix song. Bret works primarily with the technology and marketing departments at QLP. When he's not at QLP, he's usually out pretending to know how to play golf, binge-watching Netflix, or playing with his adorable bulldog puppies.
At the age of 7, Mike found a genius way to turn a profit selling fresh produce to the people in his neighborhood.Mike's Bio
At the age of 7, Mike found a genius way to turn a profit selling fresh produce to the people in his neighborhood. Things were good until one day his grandma found out from the farmer next door that there were "some" vegetables missing. Mike had always planned to pay the farmer back for the produce he was borrowing. The farmer just did not know it at the time. Sales and negotiation came naturally; understanding supply chain intricacies took time.
Fast forward to college. During his last year, he and his buddy, Bret, secured a loan from the Coleman Foundation of Chicago. They took that money and started a little promotional goods web business called Quality Logo Products. Since then, the company has evolved into a $39 million operation with 2 offices and over 90 employees.
Michael fills many roles here but still finds himself spending time doing the things he loves most: leading, teaching, and selling. Michael credits the success of the company to its incredible team of employees and suppliers who tirelessly work to challenge, improve, and add value to the industry.
Quality Logo Products begins with a used laptop
Quality Logo Products was started by Bret Bonnet and Michael Wenger. The Coleman Foundation, Inc. granted them an interest-free loan. The two used old equipment and worked out of Bonnet’s basement.
Total number of employees: 2
The company started as a two-man operation with co-founders Michael Wenger and Bret Bonnet. The two did everything, from writing product descriptions to processing orders to learning just how to run a business!
Total number of products on website: 594
There are now more promotional product offerings available to customers, almost 600 different and unique promo items (594 to be exact). More selection meant more variety and that meant more attention-grabbing items for our customers to pick from!

Three's a crowd! Three employees were toiling away at Quality Logo Products this year to make the company as streamlined and efficient as possible and get our customers the best products at the best prices. There were now six hands doing the work of many!

The S.S. QLP was going full steam ahead to bring as many custom products as possible to our customers. We jumped up to 1,088 promotional products available on our website and were showing no signs of slowing down, not even for lunch!

Everything big has to start small, and with five employees, Quality Logo Products was on their way to big success! The employees were still able to fit into one car for lunch runs, but they were ready to bring in some more help to really provide the best promo ordering experience possible.

Created a Scholarship for NCC
Founders of Quality Logo Products, Bret Bonnet and Michael Wenger, met and dreamed up their business idea at North Central College in Naperville. It only made sense to give back to their alma mater in a big way! Any student majoring in Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management can apply for $2,000 through the Dr. Gary Ernst Entrepreneurial Scholarship Fund presented by www.qualitylogoproducts.com.
Started Hope Chest Toy Drive
To gear up for the holidays, Quality Logo Products partnered with local businesses to support the Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation. This inspiring non-profit collects donations of toys, coloring books, clothes, gift cards, and more. These items are then chosen from a treasure chest for kids and teens battling cancer.
Donated Teddy Bears (2nd Year)
This was our second year in a row donating over 200 teddy bears to Blackberry Farm's Holiday Express Special Needs Night. We love coming through with huggable friends for the holidays!
Great Places to Work 2018
We are over the moon to be named a Great Place to Work for another year. This honor is always exciting and makes us want to always provide an awesome work environment for our incredible team. They deserve it!
PPB's Greatest Companies to Work For
We're kind of a big deal. At least, PPB seemed to think so by honoring us as one of the "best places to work for 2019." With people this cool, it's hard not to give them the very best. Taco trucks for everyone!
Featured on CBS News
CBS Denver, Boston, and San Francisco featured our study of the most and least hygienic cities in America on their respective news channels. They weren't the only ones! ABC News, Fox News, USA Today, and 103.5 KISS FM also picked up this piece!
Made Fortune's Best Places to Work
It was really exciting for Quality Logo Products to make Fortune's Best Places to Work in Chicago for the first time. From a fully stocked snack room to exclusive movie screenings (Star Wars!), we believe our employees deserve an awesome place to come to every day.
ASI Top 40 Distributors
Quality Logo Products is proud to be on ASI's Top 40 Distributors list for another year. There are over 30,000 promotional products distributors in the world, making this accomplishment nothing short of amazing!
Voted #1 Place to Work
Woo-hoo! Quality Logo Products was named as the #1 place to work by the Advertising Specialty Institute. Counselor Magazine ran an article about this achievement where President Bret Bonnet was quoted: "Work is work, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be fun." Well said!
PPAI Best Bosses
Bret Bonnet, the President and Co-Founder of Quality Logo Products, was honored by PPAI Media as one of the best bosses in the promotional products company. Bret and his marketing team thought it would be hilarious to take an "awkward family" photo for the article.
Kat's Honored as a "Service Superstar"
Kat Dlugolecki is definitely an awesome sales rep. PPAI Media totally agreed when they chose her as one of 15 "service superstars" for 2019. You rock, Kat!
Chicago Tribune Best Places to Work
There are thousands of businesses in the Chicagoland area, which is why we were over the moon to hear we made Chicago Tribune's list of the Best Places to Work in 2019. We celebrated this milestone achievement the only way we know how - snacks, good conversation, and Moscow Mules in the office.
Ranked #17 Distributor
Print+Promo, an industry publication, released a list of top 50 distributors in the United States. Quality Logo Products was extremely happy to be ranked #17 on the list. In an industry with over 30,000 distributors, that's definitely not too shabby!
Website 5.0 Launches
Website 5.0 was a top to bottom redesign of our interface, meant to bring you a better online experience. This new web design includes intermediate categories that help you find what you need faster and a shopping cart that keeps your purchases organized.
Over 1K PPE Products
As Americans slowly started going back to work during the COVID-19 pandemic, we met the demand for safety equipment with over 1,000 new PPE products. This included essentials like custom face masks, hand sanitizer, plexiglass shields, thermometers, nitrile gloves, and more!
Ranked #38 Distributor
It was a crazy year, but the Advertising Specialty Institute still released their annual top distributor list. With over 30,000 distributors in the industry, it was an honor to be ranked #38!
Record Breaking Sale
It was an honor to work with Cabela’s/Bass Pro Shop on their custom hot cocoa mugs. Every customer who signed up for their credit card got one as a free promotional gift! This was a record breaking order for QLP in 2020.
This was such a simple process and communication was easy for my custom order. Would definitely order from Quality Logo Products again.
