We started in the mid-80s as a three-person branded merchandise company known as Corporate Incentives. It wasn’t long before our clients asked us to store those branded promotional items, and our warehousing and fulfillment capabilities were born. Pretty soon, they were asking us to store, fulfill and even print their collateral as well. Along the way, we designed and built digital tools to help us serve those clients more effectively and efficiently. With each passing year, we acquired more space, more employees and more capabilities — always thinking “Think Solutions,” looking for ways to support our clients and their needs.
With the marketing support services humming along, it was time to add the front-end branding and marketing expertise — so in 2009 we acquired a small, smart advertising agency that shared our cultural obsession with client service and quality-driven work. That agency has now evolved to a full-service, strategically and creatively driven B2C/B2B branding and marketing agency that can seamlessly take you from the initial brand discovery session through to the flawless execution of a fully integrated sales support solution.
Today, we have over 60 employees and offer a robust suite of integrated marketing services that continues to evolve. We are about service, quality and doing what’s right for our clients. And we’re pretty proud of that. With an award-winning advertising agency, a creatively driven branded merchandise group and a meticulous warehousing and fulfillment operation all under one roof, we offer an approach to your brand and marketing efforts that no one else can.
Put 60+ passionate people in one building and amazing things can happen. These are the conductors who turn all that energy into client success.
Values drive your culture. They determine the kind of employees, clients and partners you attract and retain. These are ours. If you share them, we should talk.
Everybody who works here gives a damn. Seriously… if you’ve worked in other places, you might find it a little disorienting at first. But if you’re passionate too, you’ll think it’s pretty cool. It’s universal here. Every one of us cares. About the quality of our work. The people we do it for. The people we do it with. And the world we do it in.
Every day, we get up and try to live the values on this page. We call it integrity and it’s the most important value here. It’s about being open and honest. Choosing to do the right thing, even when that’s the most difficult thing. It’s about honoring our commitments — to our clients, our vendors, each other and ultimately, to ourselves.
Mediocrity sucks. It’s not good for business. And it’s not good for your soul. We believe there is enormous value in reaching for extraordinary in the work we do. Whatever that work may be. We push ourselves, our vendors and our clients, because we want to look back at the job we did, and the lives we lived, and feel good — like what we did matters.
We call it responsibility. Being a grown-up. It means looking out for — and being accountable to — our clients, our coworkers, our community and ourselves. It means taking ownership. Learning from mistakes. Giving credit. Leading by example. And doing whatever it takes to get the job done right.
The goal of business is to grow and thrive. To evolve and improve. The same goes for people. And we’ve found that when our people grow — not just in their skills and capabilities on the job, but personally as well — our business does too. So we invest in, encourage and reward growth — through mentoring, continuing education, seminars and more. Our people are our greatest asset and it would be crazy not to try to help them get better.
Thinking solutions. Solving problems. Creating opportunities. Finding new and different and better ways. This is what we do. For our clients. And for ourselves. It takes curiosity. Mental sweat. Daring. Imagination. And a willingness to fail. But the result is better work. Smoother processes. Increased efficiency. And ultimately, greater success for everyone.
Two things. We are fortunate to do work we love, with people who are smart and kind and fun and a little wacky (at times). And we’re good at a lot of things and have some pretty cool gadgets.
This adds up to an opportunity — and a responsibility — to give back. Sometimes through pro-bono work. Sometimes through fund-raisers. Sometimes through mentoring and internships.
Yes, we have a business to run and it can be a very crazy business at that, but we never want to lose perspective on the fact that when we pay it forward, we can make this world a better place.
