We’re info junkies here at The Creative J. I have never seen a staff so committed to learning and researching than we have here. Whether it’s learning the latest in apparel decorating techniques, researching how much weight a bag will hold, or testing the quality of a pen, our staff is constantly striving to provide our customers with the information necessary to make informed decisions.
Part of our learning quest is to become fully certified specialists in our industry. Did you know there is a certification process for promotional product distributors? By attending various classes, seminars and educational events, certification can be earned through our international industry association, PPAI (Promotional Products Association International).
Currently, we have two staff members who have received their T.A.S. designations (Trained Advertising Specialist), with the rest of our staff working to attain their certifications this year. Over 25 credits of industry training was completed in order to receive these certifications.
Classes include subjects spanning a range of topics covering the promotional products industry – everything from ethics and proper business practices, to artwork and decoration techniques, to product safety and compliance.
And, we are not stopping there! Our next step is to receive the C.A.S. certification, a process which requires over 75 credits and at least 3 years experience in the industry.
So why should you use a certified promotional products consultant for your promotional marketing? Easy! We have the best knowledge to help guide you in making the right decisions for marketing your company or brand. We can advise you on a variety of things such as what items and artwork will imprint best, what products or suppliers are the quality you need, and how to make the most of your budget. Once you work with us,  you’ll see how we can make the entire process much simpler for you by allowing us to do the legwork and research. We know what works, and what has failed. We know how important it is to make sure the products you receive will work for your marketing purposes.
We’re not just sales people, we’re true consultants. We’re here to help you reach your marketing goals, solve problems, and find the best possible way for you to present your brand – which is a reflection of yourself.
