Action Plus Ideas is considered a “distributor” in the promotional products industry.

What Is A Distributor? (As defined by PPAI) In the promotional products industry, a distributor develops ideas for using promotional products in a marketing or promotional campaign, buys the items from the supplier and sells them to end buyers. Distributors act as independent agents and sell products to their clients. There are more than 30,000 distributor firms in the industry.

Because distributors are managing multiple accounts, purchasing hundreds of thousands (if not millions) in sales, and have established relationships with the suppliers/decorators, distributors can then help with customer service resolution if anything goes wrong with an order and they can help get priority for special or rush projects, among other great services.

The larger and better the distributor, the better it is for the end buyers, because the suppliers/decorators want to continue good relationships, in order to receive their business.

With all of that said, you may still ask, why work with Action Plus Ideas? Well, we hate to brag (but we are about to do just that…)

Action Plus Ideas was recently named Distributor of the Year Award for North and South Carolina. This award was voted on by the suppliers/decorators that we work with on a daily basis. We are very excited for this award, because it confirms that our team is doing right by our customers.

We have a team of 25 members that manage small and large accounts, and we were founded over 30 years ago in Charlotte, so we have the experience to handle any project.

If you are looking for a company that can help you produce a small run of t-shirts for a charity golf tournament, API can handle that project. If you are looking for a company that can manufacture 100,000 items overseas with custom branding, and then make sure those items are kitted and fulfilled around the world, API can also handle that project.

We would love to work with you and your company as well. Contact us today and we will send you one of our custom kit of trending products, along with a presentation on WHY API.
