I started Bento's Promotions in 2008 with my husband, Mark. We attended promotional product sales and print training for distributors in the industry to sell and produce our own products. We intended just to produce promotional products from home; screen-printing shirts and pad printing cups, mugs, pens, etc., while my husband maintained his full-time job. I would sell and together we would print most of the items ourselves. Well, we couldn't produce product fast enough for the orders we were getting so that's when I decided to start ordering more products, direct from industry suppliers, to save time and be able to produce more orders.
Well, fast forward 12 years and I am a full-time Certified Advertising Specialist (PPAI certification) and an Account Executive with Halo Branded Solutions. Halo is one of the largest and most successful distributor networks that enables me to buy like the "Big Guys" to be more competitive on price but still work with quality suppliers who value great service as well. It's gives me a competitive edge and resources that I just didn't have on my own. I run my business from home where we do still produce some of our own goods as well. I serve local businesses but I also have customers outside the my local area, even in other states. I also help non-profit or fund raising groups and even small personal orders for your family or group event. Either way, I take pride in the quality of products provided, timely production and great service.
What I can do for you??
My goal is to come up with creative marketing solutions to grow your business. I have access to thousands of suppliers to put your logo on almost anything. Custom items also available if you truly want a one-of-a-kind product. I care about how your logo looks on every product. Your logo is important and should look good and be consistent on your advertising. With the industry training I have I can make sure that happens. I can save you time by helping you take the guess work out of your promotions with my knowledge of required artwork and product selection. I have on hand or have access to samples so you can know pretty much what you are going to get. (Samples may vary)
I have invested time into my business to help yours. I attend the largest promotional product trade show in our industry, annually, to stay on top of "my game". I always stay up to date on industry changes and news every year and further my training. The video (to the right) is just a little snap shot of how I can help your business. Please let me know if I can simply answer a question, it doesn't cost a thing. :)
I feel truly Blessed that God has given me the opportunity to do what I do. Please call me or send a message from this website so I can help you with your marketing and promotional needs.
Thank you for visiting my site and may God Bless You in your business endeavors as much as He has in mine.
