Description of Products/Services: Big Dog Promotional Products puts your name in front of customers and keeps it there. We don't give our customers catalogs. We work with our customers to develop the perfect imprinted promotional item that fits their budget as well as their advertising goals. With more than 700,000 items available through Big Dog Promotional's vast product lineup, we can assist in locating just the right ones. We're not just a supplier; we're part of your sales and marketing team. Big Dog Promotional Products has assisted customers from local Chamber of Commerce events to federal agencies like the U.S. Army and everything in between. We are a veteran-owned business and employ disabled veterans as part of our national sales team. It's our way of giving back to those who have given so much. Businesses buying promotional items from Big Dog Promotional Products are helping us provide meaningful jobs to those who deserve and need them desperately.
What makes your business unique? Big Dog Promotional Products works with customers as an extension of their marketing team. Our customers know their businesses and who they want to reach. With more than 700,000 items to pick from, we help select the one that keeps their name in front of those customers longer. We're here to help our customers spend their advertising dollars wisely.
What new things are happening in your business? Big Dog Promotional Products has expanded our digital design and graphics department. We can now help small to midsize business with logos and artwork digitizing.
In the past, when a customer had a T-shirt (or other product) design done, the image remained with the printer, not with the customer. Big Dog Promotional Products not only digitizes the logo, but supplies it to the customer free with a purchase. That can save the customer hundreds of dollars.
Are you collaborating with any other regional businesses? Big Dog Promotional Products has partnered with local charities to help not only save them money, but raise needed donations considerably. Our Help Us, Help Them program makes it possible for corporate sponsors to help their charities by buying products from us. It's a win-win for everyone.
