See how these promo pros turned products into works of art. By Kristina Valdez The Art of Promo Thoughtfully made merchandise is the bread and butter of the industry. These cherished products bring campaigns to life and inspire loyal customers. Either they’re lovingly used or they’re cherished – placed on a shelf with the other keepsakes. For promo pros, finding that sweet spot is a combination of skilled craftwork, attention to detail and client dedication. This year, 17 suppliers and distributors, often working in collaboration, are being recognized with PPAI’s 2023 Pyramid Awards in Supplier Decorating for their creativity and expertise, delivering innovative “sweet spot” solutions. Working with clients to brainstorm imaginative products, these suppliers turn ideas and goals into profitable realities with proven results. Since 1958, one of the industry’s most-coveted company distinctions has been the PPAI Pyramid Awards, sponsored by Pacesetter Awards. This year, 24 awards were given across 12 decoration categories. Some suppliers will take home several awards this year, such as Terry Town and Visions, which both received two. Opti Print and Fulfillment will take home four awards, and Indiana Metal Craft is a triple honoree, but all the winners displayed excellence in product design and technique.
