With Independence Day around the corner, we wanted to highlight a specialty category of promo items: Made-in-the-USA. 🇺🇸
The promo world has experienced their share of challenges with overseas manufacturing in the past few years, whether it be tariffs, ongoing supply chain issues or challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has led to the search for impactful (but also affordable) promos right here in the United States.
But the benefits don’t stop there! Below you’ll find 3 additional reasons you should choose USA-made products for your next promotional project.
1. Quality Standards
With domestic labor laws, and strict health and safety standards to comply with, American manufacturing standards are high. It’s not as easy to track the quality standards that foreign manufacturers have to follow.
When purchasing domestically, you pretty much know what you’re getting, and the conditions the product was made in. You can trust in the fact that you’re investing in a well-made product.
2. Supporting a Larger Mission
By investing in American-made products, you’ll support job creation in the U.S., boost the American economy, and help prioritize American companies.
A Consumer Reports survey found that almost 78 percent of American consumers would rather buy a USA-produced item than an imported one. So you can align your business with a larger cause, and leave a lasting positive impression on your end-user!
3. Increased Sustainability
Sustainability has become a huge factor in many company’s purchasing decisions, and promotional products are not an exception. Companies want to support brands that make responsible decisions regarding environmental impact.
With products from a USA-based manufacturer, the products take a shorter journey and therefore, release less carbon emissions than overseas manufacturers. If reducing your carbon footprint is important to you, USA-made promotional products can contribute to that.
Below are some of our team’s current favorites, all made in the USA!
