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!

For 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

What Did They Win?

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.
