Branding Beat - Cut Through the Noise
2019 Supplier Awards

Congrats to the Winners of the 2019 Supplier Awards!

Peanut butter and jelly. Ren and Stimpy. Batman and Robin. These are some of the greatest duos in history. Now it’s time to add another to the list – promo product distributors and suppliers!

promotional product distributors and suppliersFor those in the industry, you know this relationship is what keeps the wheels turning. As a distributor, we’re extremely fortunate at Quality Logo Products® to work with some pretty dynamite suppliers. They put in the hard work every day when it comes to sample requests, keeping up with stock, and so much more. They’re heroes in disguise!

Every hero deserves their day, which is why it was an honor to pay tribute to our top suppliers in the 2019 Supplier Awards. This is an annual event, hosted by Quality Logo Products®, that awards the vendors we work with directly based on their customer service and overall awesomeness.

Let’s get to it! As it stands, here are our top five suppliers of 2019:

  1. Primeline
  2. Hit Promotional Products
  3. PCNA
  4. Illini
  5. Gold Bond

If being recognized isn’t cool enough, there’s also the added bonus of receiving sweet prizes. The first place winner, Primeline, will receive one Echo Show. This savvy device lets you connect to Amazon’s Alexa, stream music, read ebooks, watch live TV, and make video calls to friends and family.

Hit is also receiving their very own Echo Show, while PCNA will receive two Echo Spots, another nifty device that relies on voice recognition to turn on lights, lock doors, see to-do lists, listen to podcasts, hear weather updates, and more!

That isn’t to say Illini and Gold Bond aren’t just as deserving of these cool prizes. Who knows? Maybe next year they’ll secure top honors! After all, every vendor is just as great as the last, making the decision tougher and tougher each award season.

The 2019 Supplier Awards, and the prizes that come with it, are a little way for us to show our suppliers how much they’re appreciated. In the end, it’s the least we can do. They sprinkle fairy dust on every order and make it special for our customers. We can’t wait to continue working with these awesome folks in the future!

Alyssa Mertes

Alyssa loves food. A LOT. Particularly pizza and popcorn, but she knows beggars can’t be choosers. When she’s not stuffing her face (which is rare), she loves watching movies, playing volleyball and softball, and engaging in any number of interesting shenanigans. If she had to pick a spirit animal, she’d be an otter because they are playful and love to laugh. Most of the time she’s laughing at herself, whether other people are laughing with or at her is to be determined.
