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

    I’m excited about PPW!W because not only do I believe in promotional products, but this wonderful industry has given me so much these past 14 years. It’s the only thing I know and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    I love getting any kind free things and if it helps to promote a logo that is ok too. My husband likes to get the custom golf shirts and has made use of them for a lot of years thus giving him something to wear and also having a logo seen in many different places.
