I network with a lot of small business owners – there are something like 40,000 businesses in Portland with 5 or fewer employees – and one of their frustrations is the high minimum order quantities for some of the ‘basics’ like custom logo’d pens, post-it notes, etc.
That’s why I was pleasantly surprised to learn this morning that one of our suppliers – Carlson Craft – offers custom-printed Post-it brand pads in VERY small quantities. The minimum order is something like 10 pads, so this is a great resource we can now offer our small business clients.
If you’d like to visit the Carlson Craft site and take a look, here’s the link to the section with the custom Post-it notes: http://www.ccbusinesssolutions.com/Page.cfm?intMenuItemID=11199&blnReload=0&intSiteID=114
Advance Promotions is a Carlson Craft dealer, so you can order anything you see on their site though us at the same price you see on their site.
Another line we work with – Elram – offers EVERYTHING in their catalog at a minimum order quantity of 12 pieces. I’ll be the first to admit that on a per-item basis, the pricing isn’t what you’d call great… but if you only need a dozen of something, it is a good resource.
