QLP Placed on Counselor’s Best Places to Work List for Third Year!

We sell tons of customized awards here at Quality Logo Products for companies to give out. Whether an individual sales team member has shattered their quarterly numbers or your advertising and marketing team did a fantastic job on an outreach campaign – trust me, there’s an award for you recipient and your budget. We’re used to selling them, but now we have the pleasure of receiving an award from The Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI)’s Counselor Magazine and their “Best Places to Work” list!


We’ve been honored to be nominated for three years in a row, but for those who don’t know exactly how you receive this award this is how it all goes down: 90 companies in the promotional products industry were nominated to partake in an in-depth survey developed by Quantum Workplace, Counselor’s research partner. The survey explored and asked QLP employees about 10 different areas including: team effectiveness, retention risk, alignment with goals, trust with coworkers, recognition of individual contribution, manager effectiveness, trust in senior leaders, feeling valued, satisfaction with current role, and people practices.

After the results were tallied we landed on their list at number 63 and are so excited to share the news with our readers, fans, and customers!


We run on the, “Work Hard, Play Hard” mentality here at QLP and the balance seems to work perfectly. We strive to make sure that our customers are taken extremely well cared of so their items arrive in time and look exactly as they hoped they would. When all the orders are taken care of and we can step away from our computers and our phones for a few minutes, we love to have some inner-office fun – which you can see on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

A big ‘Thank You’ goes out to all our customers for making our jobs so enjoyable that we want to continue to produce only the best service possible. Thank you, we couldn’t do it without you!

    HECK YEAH!!!!!!!!!! An amazing cast of characters here. The workplace should be a joy to go to, not a place to hate going too. AMAZING and so happy to be part of the growing goodness which is QLP!

  2. Kat D.

    SOOOO happy to hear that QLP made the list!!! It’s true, QLP is one of THE BEST places to work in all aspects that you can think of. It’s an honor to be able to work for a company like this.

  3. Matt

    Coming from previous jobs to working at QLP I can say that this is very well deserved. We have a great environment here that serves to not only keep the employees happy but certainly keeps our customer’s happy. Wouldn’t work anywhere else!

  4. Jen

    WOOO! Congratulations everyone!

  5. Jon

    I have only been here 2 years, but I would like to think that I am the driving force behind this award – who wouldn’t think working alongside me is the greatest thing ever?

    Seriously though, this is my favorite job I have ever had, Congrats and Thanks QLP for being such an awesome place to spend my Monday-Friday 8am – 6pm (and sometimes later).

      John is the source of my motivation and the reason why I wake up each morning and scream “Hello World!”.

  6. Chase

    Wow! I didn’t know what this list exists! That is awesome! I love working for QLP. True story I bleed blue and orange. I love it here! Best work environment I have ever been in! I think only Google has us beat! OK that might be a stretch, but still! And this is a construct of the owners! They make this environment possible with their ideas and attitude! Hats off to those men! Thank you for letting us all still work here! 🙂

  7. Jaimie

    QLP is definitely the best place to work for! Love coming in here every day and wouldn’t trade it for anything! 🙂

  8. Erin

    Woohoo!! It’s the amazing QLP team and our awesome customers that make each day so enjoyable!

  9. Erik Steinbrecher

    This is a no brainer. We all have a lot of fun at our jobs and that’s what makes us good at our jobs as well. We all have a passion for what we do. It shows in our work and in the satisfaction of our customers. Good job QLP!

    How were we not #1?!?

    I could care less what the rankings are. I have never had a job (for almost four years now!) where I woke up every morning and didn’t think “NOOOOO!!!” and was actually HAPPY to go to work. It has everything to do with how we hire and the culture it creates. We don’t take ourselves seriously, but we take what we do VERY seriously. I don’t know how there could possibly be a better ‘get stuff done yet have a LOT of fun at the same time’ balance anywhere else. Thanks to everyone but Jon for making this possible.

  11. David

    The list is not accurate. QLP should be way higher up than where we are. Having worked “jobs” before that I strongly disliked, I can tell you that this place is awesome and it’s not forced. Everyone legitimately enjoys being here every day.

  12. keith

    Absolutely. This is a work hard, play hard atmosphere. I have more fun here everyday than I have had at previous jobs. I get to wear basketball shorts and hoodies all year round at the office. Where else can you do that at?

  13. Greg

    Well deserved for sure!!! Love working for owners who care! Great environment and people to work with and for!

  14. Serenity

    I did not know this list existed, glad to be a part of it! QLP is definitely a great place to work! 🙂

    Not a day goes by without laughing about something. I truly enjoy coming to work everyday. It’s never a dull moment.
