QLP Named One of Top 50 Distributors of 2015 by Promo Marketing Magazine

We here at Quality Logo Products® are super excited to announce that we have made Promo Marketing’s list of the Top 50 Distributors for the second year in a row!

Promo Marketing is a leading industry publication that is dedicated to helping both distributors (like QLP!) and suppliers succeed by offering product and marketing information.

The Promo Marketing Top 50 Distributors list comes out every year and ranks the industry’s highest-selling companies. The winners are ranked based on sales numbers from 2014.

This year QLP ranked #38 on the Top 50 Distributors list!


We’re thrilled to be included on the list again especially because the bar was higher than ever this year! Last year companies needed to have made more than $18 million to be considered for the list; this year companies needed to make more than $24.5 million.

So here’s the good news: the entire industry is growing and it’s a great time to be in the promotional products business.

We’re stepping up to the challenge to get higher on the list next year. We are expanding our customer service team, we launched the Give Your Brand a Hand giveaway, and we’ve hired a new Marketing Director.

QLP knows that we couldn’t be here without our customers, so we’d like to take this moment to thank you all! We know that you could go to a lot of different companies for your advertising specialty needs, so we thank you for trusting us with your promotions and special events. As always, we’re looking forward to working with everyone again in the future.

Let’s make the rest of 2015 our best year yet!


We would like to thank Promo Marketing for all of their continued support and recognition.

Thanks to everyone involved!

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

    Wow! This is awesome! Great job everyone! Getting 38th is great! I expect QLP to jump up next year! With all the great work QLP does I cannot see it going any other way! What a great team lead by great people! Keep up the good work and keep it going!

    This is AMAZING! 🙂 I am glad to be a part of a team that keeps pushing forward and succeeding past their goals each and every year! And most of all, let’s keep on having fun and making customer’s happy! QLP is still growing and learning each and every day! Let’s keep up the awesome work!! Great Post!! 😀

    This is really cool to see the hard work of everyone here paying off two years in a row! This is perfect to show customers that we are good at what we do, and we do it well enough to find ourselves amongst the top companies in the promotional marketing industry.
    Another point to make is that the industry as a whole is growing. This is a testament to how well promotional products work. You can say a lot with a pen that has a logo, or a bag that somebody wears in the subway everyday. Billboards and television are good ways to get your name recognized but promotional products allow potential customers to interact with a product that is branded with your name and information. What better way to expose yourself to a client then by giving them a sticky note pad that they use three or four times every day? Companies are recognizing that promotional products are invaluable to earning new clients, and the growth within our industry reflects that.

    UGH. This is based on sales volume and not kickassitude. If it were, I think we all know who would be #1. HOWEVER, not bad for a group of rag-tag workaholics like QLP! I can imagine that we’ll continue to climb up that list with the more exposure we get as a company. We have a reputation for getting business from a client who has previously dealt with another company (or two) on that list and then never losing them. Our reputation is more important (at least to me!) than how much so-and-so did in sales last year. I bet if they did another ranking according to customer satisfaction, retention and year over year growth, QLP would be #1! Our Yelp, Better Business Bureau and Trust Pilot reviews speak for themselves. I’m not so worried about the other guys, but kudos to them for their success. It’s a cutthroat industry and we all do a heck of a job. Keep up the good work QLP, no reason to stop now!

    Way to go, QLP! Hugs all around to everyone that made this possible with all of their hard work and dedication. It is so cool to watch businesses grow and realize that promo products really do something!! I am honored to be a part of the QLP team!

    This is amazing!!

    I am not at all surprised that we made it on this list. This company works extremely hard to be successful and to make sure each and every customer is happy and has the perfect giveaway for their event.

    it is so rewarding knowing that our customer’s event was very successful and that promo products were the key to that success. I did an order for a little girl who had Cancer and to this day, that is still one of the most rewarding times in my career here.

    I could not be happier with my job here and to work in this industry. Each day there is something different. You hear about so many different events that go on and get to talk to a variety of different people. It’s just so refreshing and exciting with all the new stuff we get to learn about and do here.

    Upcoming blog posts : Grass is green, and Sky is blue.

    I am just kidding, I am not surprised to find us on the list . . . but I think we should be a lot higher. QLP is always striving to take that number 1 spot and I think we can get there based on how much I have seen this company grow in the past few years; look out 4imprint!

    As was mentioned before, we couldn’t have done this without our great customers, so the thanks goes to everyone who has placed an order with me as well as my team here that helps us fulfill every order. If you read this and want to help us take over that #1 spot, please give me a call!

    I’m very proud to be a part of this tight knit, kick ass community of awesome that is Quality Logo Products!

    I mean, being ranked top 50 is pretty damn sweet. I just KNOW we will climb that list and get to the top eventually!

    Great news! I’m not surprised to hear this! We have a great team here at QLP that love what they do and, are really good at it! Having great leaders that help push and encourage our team is a big plus. It wont be long until we are topping that list.

  10. Ashley Hoban

    Congrats QLP! Two years in a row! Woot, woot!

    There’s a sense of pride knowing that I get to come to work for a great company like QLP. We deserve the recognition! A lot of determination and hard work walk in and out of these doors every day, and I’m glad to be surrounded by my colleagues. I can always count on them to strive for excellence.

    It is wild to see the statistic that there was a $6.5 million jump required in order to make the list. It’s a growing industry that is going to continue to be more highly competitive for distributors to make their way into the top 50. Honestly, knowing this will give me the drive I need to continue aiding in QLP’s phenomenal business.

    I like the shout out you gave to our customers, Mandy. We have tons of fantastic customers who continue to believe in the QLP way. I’m sure I speak on behalf of the whole team here when I say I am grateful to be a part of a business with such wonderful customers. It will always be about them here.

    #38 is a major accomplishment, but I know the QLP team won’t stop until we reach the top.

    Here’s to climbing the list next year!

  11. Angie

    High fives and hugs to the QLP team. What a great accomplishment to be recognized. With hard work and positive attitudes, I can only see us climbing our way to the to top of this list within the next few years.

    A big thinks to our customers. With so many choices for your promotional product needs, the QLP team is so thankful that you chose to work with us. If you are not already working with QLP, give us a try. You will be happy you did.

    Obviously this should come as no surprise. It is a great feeling though to be recognized as a top 50 distributor! We do have a great group of people here that make it an fantastic place to work. Keep being awesome and kicking ass!

    Here is to another great year and making it up higher next year.
