How to Do a Performance Review of Your Corporate Promotional Products and Awards Supplier

Doing a performance review of your corporate promotional apparel supplier will help you determine their effectiveness. Your corporate apparel and promotional choices can raise or lower the visibility of your business and can be either very effective or seriously detrimental in improving your profitability. Unique Embroidery & Promotions has accumulated years of experience in supplying clothing and promotional items to a wide range of businesses. Use our experience by applying the following steps to help you analyze your current supplier's effectiveness.

Does Your Supplier Have Experience in Promotional Activities?

Ask your supplier open ended questions about their experience. At Unique Embroidery & Promotions we have over 30 years of experience in brand promotion. We have supplied quality products for businesses, charities, sports teams and educational organizations. You have spent a lot of time, effort and money promoting your brand to entrust your promotional product requirement goals to an inexperienced vendor. We have a solid reputation in the community for attaining those goals.

Does Your Supplier Have Access to an Exceptionally Large Product Network?

Choose a supplier that can deliver the products you need. Unique Embroidery & Promotions is a member of the PPPC - Promotional Products Professionals of Canada, providing us with access to a vast quantity of online catalogues and promotional items numbering over 300,000. Whatever your company requirements are we can find the right product - on time and on budget!

Ask Your Supplier Questions About Quantities and Turn Around Time

Take a look at your current supplier's quantity requirements. At Unique Embroidery & Promotions we have the flexibility to specialize in smaller quantities and we can offer a very fast turn-around time. For garments & embroidery no order is too small for us and we can handle orders from 1 - 5000. Our new flat rate set up fee is $48 for logos up to 4.5 inches wide and up to 10,000 stitches! Embroidery set up fees should not cost you an arm and a leg! Can your current supplier offer you that?

Check Promotional Product Effectiveness

One way we can help you at Unique Embroidery & Promotions is by using our online ROI calculator tool to judge the cost effectiveness of your selections. This useful tool will help you determine just how effective your promotional products are. You can find instructions on how to use this calculator in our previous blog at: How to Use the Unique Embroidery Online Calculator Tool.

Ask Questions About Service Levels

How well does your supplier treat you? Empty promises can waste time, sap energy and drain dollars. We like to keep our promises, and our staff are passionate about what they do. They are dedicated to providing you with a positive experience that is about more than simply turning over products. We believe that your needs should be met with in a timely, appropriate and professional manner, and we will ensure that you are satisfied with your experience at Unique Embroidery & Promotions. The biggest measure of a good supplier is how do they handle a situation when something goes wrong? Nobody is perfect, we all make mistakes along the way - sometimes in house, sometimes our suppliers, sometimes shipments are delayed due to unforeseen circumstances. The big question is does the client get left in the lurch? Too bad so sad? Not with Unique Embroidery & Promotions. We guarantee your satisfaction every time. We always have a plan B in effect. No one will ever be left without an award to hand out at a banquet even if it's a temporary one.
