25 Years of Marketing Fulfillment: A Look Back as OnFulfillment Celebrates its Silver Anniversary

This year—April to be exact—OnFulfillment will be celebrating its 25th anniversary. That’s a quarter century of helping companies around the world meet their marketing fulfillment, event management, printing, promotional swag, shipping, storage, and training needs, among others.

Of course, it didn’t start that way. Our origins were actually quite modest. But we’ve grown over the years, constantly honing our skills and enhancing our capabilities to offer the latest, most advanced marketing fulfillment services available.

It’s been quite a journey, and over the next several months, we’ll be using this blog space to explore where we started, how far we’ve come, and where we’re heading with respect to a number of disciplines, including printing, shipping, promotional products, event fulfillment, warehousing, pick-and-pack, and kitting.

Want to Be a Conscious Consumer? Consider Buying from These Companies

Many businesses today are engaging in “conscious consumerism”— making purchasing decisions based on their perceived social, economic, or environmental impact. In fact, we wrote a blog about this behavior last year (“What is Conscious Consumerism, and Why is it So Popular?,” Feb. 22, 2023).

Fortunately for these businesses, a number of well-known brands have also embraced this practice, donating a percentage of their profits to charitable organizations or modifying their manufacturing methods to minimize their impact on the environment.

In this blog, we’ll provide an overview of some of these socially responsible brands and how they are expressing their conscious consumerism. This is not an exhaustive list, just a random sampling of some of the larger brands (each of whom OnFulfillment has a relationship with). If your business has a mandate to practice conscious consumerism and you’re in the market for branded apparel or other giveaways, you might want to give these vendors a look.

Looking for Branded Apparel? Learn to Speak the Language First

In a recent blog, we defined the various types of fabrics used in apparel production and offered suggestions on which are best for certain applications.

Today we’re going to turn our attention to the various types of apparel available for corporate branding purposes. While the categories are pretty basic—essentially shirts and outerwear—there are certain styles and treatments that impact the look and feel of the final product, which ultimately affects the perception of your brand. Much of what follows may be common knowledge, at least for some, but it provides a nice summary you or your team can consult when considering future purchases to ensure they are investing in the right items for the right audience.

Let’s get started.
