Our Frequently Asked Questions will help answer common questions that we get asked, but if you have a burning question please don’t hesitate to call us at 1-888-424-5133.
What’s your turnaround time?Depending on the supplier typical turnaround time is 5 to 10 business days after proof approval. If you forgot about an event and need stuff NOW don’t fret! If you waive the proof we can ship in as little as 1 business day for no extra charge. We can even ship Same Day for a nominal fee, and the order will even come branded with your logo!
Do you have Minimums?It depends on the item! If you’re interested in a recognition gift that doesn’t require a logo (for example a SONY Bluetooth Speaker or Le Creuset cast-iron cookware) then there are no minimum quantities required and you can buy just one. If you’re interested in some pens or water bottles with a logo then minimum quantities do apply; typically lower priced items have higher minimums and higher priced items have lower minimums. We also always have items on clearance and they have lower minimum quantities. Awards and trophies have a minimum of only one piece.
Do I have to put a logo on everything?No you don’t! If you’re giving away promotional marketing tools such as leave behinds for potential clients then we would recommend putting your logo and/or contact information. However if you’re sourcing a gift for a retiring colleague or want to congratulate someone for an achieved milestone then we have a wide variety of brand name gifts available that would ship without a custom logo.
What if I only have a set amount of budget, can you work with me?Absolutely, one of our first questions to you will ask about your budget. Over the past 30 years we have established some amazing relationships with key suppliers and have achieved sales targets which give us further discounts than the MSRP pricing you’ll see in their catalogues. We pass these discounts on to you! We also have a wide variety of clearance items available at all times which can produce savings up to 90% off but we’ll have to act fast because inventory is limited.
What are your hours?Our office is officially open from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Friday, however we have all been known to reply to e-mails and send quotes as the sun is rising and on weekends. We value your time and interest and aim to reply to your request as immediately as possible.

I only recently met Ashleigh and her business Needham Promotions. I was looking for some apparel which could be custom branded. After giving her a brief description of what I was looking for she was able to suggest some items that would work making the selection process, which looked daunting, be very very easy. Ashleigh exceeded my expectations in terms of speed to get me my product, quality of the products, and quality of the customer embroidery. All for an incredibly fair price delivered to my home. I’m already looking at additional items.
Ashleigh was great to work with you. She had great communication and was able to place an order for us on a time crunch. Great service, great prices and fast turn over
