Our History

    Regis Sobinsky and Gary Bates collaborated on a strategy to create a promotional products distributorship from an end user perspective. For over fifteen years, they utilized promotional products to augment their marketing efforts in the computer industry. Most of the promotional products were purchased via direct mail-order catalogs. Some purchases were made through local distributors as well. Regis and Gary recognized the opportunity to bridge a gap between the largest distributors in the industry and much smaller local distributors. The largest distributors often require customers to do business with them more-or-less anonymously via mail-order or by calling long distance. And you often have to speak to someone different every time you call. The local distibutor often provides lots of personal attention but is too small to have the resouces to find the item you want; create the art the manufacturer needs; or get you the best pricing. So with this goal of offering the resouces of a large distrubutor and the service and attention of a small distributor, and noting the potential growth of the promotional products industry, Promotional Solutions was launched in April, 1996, as a division of S&P Solutions, Inc.

Our Mission

     Our mission is to serve you as an extension of your marketing staff. The resources we make available to you via our website, in-office product search database, and customer service make us your "one-stop shop" for promotional products and apparel. We will do everything in our power to provide you with any product you desire. Browse our online catalogs from our home page at www.promoteyou.com to discover the wide variety of apparel and products available.

Promotional Products

     There are over 150,000 products online that our search engines can help you find. However, they do not include absolutely every item available. Therefore, we can also suggest alternatives or compatible items based on the type of product you are seeking, the quality you require, or the pricing you need to meet your budget. If you can't find what you're looking for, give us a call at 216-642-9900 or 800-380-9911 and we'll help you find it. We also have available in our showroom a more complete database of products that you are welcome to stop in and use to help generate ideas for your upcoming events - especially useful when you aren't even sure what kind of product you want. Clicking here will open a new window and load our search engine page.
     When you "order" an item through one of the product search engines, we will always contact you to confirm your order, pricing, and specifications you require for the product as well as the logo/imprint you want to put on it, before we actually submit your order to a supplier. If we know of a comparable item from another supplier that is better in quality or pricing we may suggest that alternative as well. This ensures that you receive exactly the product you expected, on time, without errors.

Corporate Apparel

     Our Corporate Apparel E-store is designed to let you browse for apparel by brand name as well as by the type of garment - i.e., sport shirt, jacket, casual wear, etc. All prices listed are MSRP. Upon receipt of your order we will contact you with your special pricing and any embroidery charges. Custom in-house embroidery and digitizing services are available. Some items can also be rushed in as little as 2-3 business days. If you have the need to develop, simplify, or consolidate your corporate apparel program we can set up and maintain an online store for you - at no additional charge! Call us for more information about this program at 216-642-9900 or 800-380-9911.
