A business, no matter what they do, cannot survive without their suppliers. Think of a restaurant. Where does all that food, napkins, and condiments come from? Suppliers. How about a well-known company like Apple? The tech, electronics, and circuits all come from… you guessed it – suppliers.

You wouldn’t have your smartphone or that delicious hamburger without suppliers. Simply put, they make the world go round.

That’s why we here at Quality Logo Products® love to pay tribute every year to these heroes via the Supplier Awards. This honor goes to the best of the best, and we show our partners love with not just high fives and compliments, but with something much cooler… prizes!

We’re happy to announce that our top 3 suppliers for 2020 are:

  1. Primeline
  2. Gold Bond
  3. Ariel

Quality Logo Products® has proven to be a champion in the industry and we are thankful for the continued partnership and friendship.”
– Joanna Keeling, Business Development Account Executive at Gold Bond

What Did They Win?

Our suppliers deserve something that allows them to have fun and let loose at the office. The Nintendo Switch Lite, which made its debut in 2019, is the perfect choice!

The Switch is a must-have for any gamer, or really, anyone that likes to have a good time. Nintendo sold nearly 3 million of these consoles in the first month of its launch alone, and the Switch Lite is shortly behind with 1.95 million sold to date! And it’s no wonder why – the games are crazy addictive and the system has the luxury of switching (see the name there) from being stationary to portable.

As our #1 supplier, Primeline walked away with not just one, but two Switch Lites. They also got a couple awesome games to go with it: Mario Kart 8 and Super Mario Odyssey!

The Nintendo Switch is pretty awesome. Just watch how Joe Dworkin of Primeline reacted to his new gift!

Gold Bond is also getting in on the Switch action, with a regular version of the console. They were also pretty happy about this prize. It’s a lot better than just a round of applause or a pat on the back!

Gold Bond was geeked over their new Nintendo Switch. They also loved their mailer, custom made by the Quality Logo Products marketing team.

A Nintendo Switch creates pure joy!

At the end of the day, a Nintendo Switch and a cool mailer is the least we can do for these amazing suppliers. They work hard every day and make us look good as a result!

Primeline is always ahead of the curve and is well-known for having their finger on the pulse of what’s hot and trending.

#3: Ariel

Ariel is just a baby as they were founded in 1993. Still, that doesn’t mean you should shake a rattle in front of them and make “goo goo gaga” noises. This Midwest supplier is a serious contender in the world of promotional products, with thousands of products to their name and a Global Resource Centre that allows you to design your products from scratch!

We are so proud to partner with Quality Logo Products® all these years and are honored to be recognized as a top supplier.”
– Jeff Lederer, President of Primeline

The 2020 Supplier Awards was a tight race, but we are beyond thrilled to recognize and honor the top 3 finalists: Primeline, Gold Bond, and Ariel. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you all these years, and we can’t wait to see what next year has in store!
