It’s no secret the pandemic has impacted nearly every industry, the promotional product industry is no exception. With shipping delays, inventory scarcity, and employee shortages on-going, ensuring an in-hand date is becoming near impossible. We recently wrote a blog detailing the mounting concerns impacting the industry and how to mitigate setbacks. However, we didn’t touch on the approach discussed here – buying USA-made products. It’s not foolproof but it will help reduce many of the risks associated with buying overseas.
Below we listed just a few vendors who carry incredible American-made products. We tried to vary the product mix so you could see the wide array of options available.
If you’re interested in learning more about the products and vendors listed below or any other USA-made vendors – get in touch!
