About 4imprint

Learn what makes us who we are & what we're passionate about.

Our History

The original principle behind 4imprint has always been about making the process of buying promotional products easier and less expensive for our customers. So in 1987, we started our mission to sell promotional items in a direct fashion. At that time, ‘direct’ meant a catalogue and a toll-free number. We were sure this more efficient and convenient process would save customers' time and the absence of a visit by a commissioned sales person would allow 4imprint to pass substantial savings on to our customers.

That first catalogue was 12 pages long, went to 250,000 businesses and it wasn't much to look at by today's standards — but it was a thing of beauty to us — and it marked the beginning of a journey that has allowed 4imprint to become the largest direct marketer of promotional products.

Also, critical to our vision for the company has always been the belief that in order to offer incredible value, we must provide incredible service — and service is all about people. We strive to create an environment where people are valued and respected. After all, associates who are passionate about their work are naturally inclined to share that enthusiasm with everyone they encounter.

Our Philosophy

In essence, we run the company by "The Golden Rule" — treat people as you want to be treated.

This philosophy is evident in everything we do. It's in our guarantee to you:

  • Lowest prices or double the difference back
  • On-time dispatch or your order is free
  • 100% satisfaction
  • Free samples
  • Free art
  • Free proof of your imprint

4imprint Today

Today, 4imprint employs over 1,000 people and our offices are located in downtown Oshkosh, Wisconsin. We're part of 4imprint Group, Plc, a publicly traded company on the London Stock Exchange. Kevin, a 32-year company veteran, is now CEO.

That single, original 12-page catalogue has evolved into several catalogue titles covering the entire range of promotional items — everything from giveaways, to embroidered apparel, to trade show displays and beautiful logo’d business gifts. Our websites allow you to view thousands and thousands of additional products — more than we could ever fit in one of our catalogues — and give you the chance to look at additional images of the product, zoom in to see the detail, request samples and much more!

The business has grown substantially over the years as well. Today we serve well over 100,000 businesses throughout the U.S. and Canada. Our Manchester, UK based team serves the UK and Ireland. Last year we carefully handled more than 1,000,000 orders for promotional products — all with an ‘on-time or free guarantee’. And we work with organisations of all shapes and sizes — from most of the Fortune 500® to small family businesses and from small churches and schools to major universities and hospitals.

In 2004 we unveiled our Blue Box® mailings. They're loaded with FREE samples, special offers and information about the newest promotional products. And only our customers get them. That's because we want to help your promotions and events stand out from the crowd.

Even though the times and the tools have changed, our basic philosophy has not.

Next time your business or organisation needs promotional products, contact one of our friendly representatives and you'll see what we mean.
