  • Write letters, send emails, post blogs, leave online comments supporting our positive contributions.

  • Honor a local official with an award ceremony, press release and media photo op.

  • Go to city hall or your state capitol and share a display, hand out information and stump for our industry!

    Send us your Promotional Products Work! Week success stories, videos and pics, and they will be posted on PPAI’s social media pages.


DAY 5: ADVOCATE FOR THE INDUSTRY!

Partner with other industry suppliers or regional associations and host a major customer appreciation day.

• Personalize products as thank-you gifts.

  • Send handwritten thank-you notes, hand-delivered

    themed baskets or unique promotional packages.
