About the Industry

The promotional products industry is a $16.9 Billion industry annually that covers a wide spectrum of products used for marketing, human resources, promotional, and other purposes.  The industry got itís start as the Advertising Specialties industry and after years of trying to explain what special kinds of advertising itís members sold, the industry association changed itís name and with it that of the industry, to better reflect the nature of the industry.

In most cases, a product must be decorated or customized to advertise for a particular organization to be considered part of the promotional products industry. The buyers of promotional product in turn uses the decorated merchandise with itsí customers, vendors, and employees.  There are exceptions in the areas of gifts and incentives (though purists would argue differently).
