Brand Advocates

Brand Advocates


Our Sales teams are made up of experienced brand advocates, marketers and communicators.

They work as extensions of your marketing, event planning and branding specialists. Our reputation as a Top 50 supplier has been built on the expertise of our sales partners most of whom have been with MadeToOrder™ for more than 10 years.

Our sales partners aren’t simply employees, they own the company. MTO’s partner ownership model allows for decentralized decision-making with centralized back office support and economies of scale in accounting functions, technology use and development.

Our collaborative environment encourages the sharing of sales and support resources and the efficient sharing of office and warehousing locations making sure that all of our customers get the benefit of large scale operations without losing the intimacy of small team relationships.

 

Promotional Products

Promotional Products


Successful promotional products do what their name implies, which is to add a dimension of ‘motion’ to your brand. Print, radio, television, and Internet media all offer short-lived brand experiences; promotional items send your brand out into the world to play golf, write a novel, attend an important meeting, or go on a business trip. Tangible objects give your brand body and permanence.

Corporate and team apparel sales have exploded over the last decade due to the casual environments many organizations have adopted. With this explosion, the corporate apparel industry has made massive changes keeping up with current trends and life styles. Employees and clients can now look good and feel comfortable while becoming a “walking” advertisement.

MadeToOrder™ offers a wide range of apparel options to match anyone’s budget. From t-shirts, golf shirts, and hats, to sweatshirts, jackets, and workout gear, we can fit your corporate team.
