FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
JP PROMOTIONAL PRODUCTS CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY
Ossining, NY —As JP Promotional Products celebrates its 20th anniversary, a journey that began from a small storage space in Elmsford, there’s a lot that this family-owned business is thankful for.
Building a thriving business starting with no customers and no revenue has been the most gratifying aspect of the company’s success.
President Shari Pulver and Chairman Bob Rosenthal will tell you that their resilience in the face of change was key to their growth, especially over the past three years when the pandemic broke the traditional supply chain. Their ability to pivot and look for new opportunities, even when shipping delays, production issues and price increases wreaked havoc on the market, was also crucial.
Still, it hasn’t always been easy to survive in a competitive business environment where consolidation has been common, pushing many small promotional products companies out of the market.
The father-daughter team owe much of their growth to acting like a big company while operating a tight ship, with less than 10 people on staff.
Their nimble approach has allowed them to grow their offerings as an authorized distributor of many leading brands, which now amounts to hundreds of thousands of quality products.
These include everything from traditional pens, t-shirts, and tote bags to eco-friendly items, work-from-anywhere office gadgets, as well as technology products and name brand products such as North Face and Bose, to name a few.
But perhaps the reason why Pulver and Rosenthal have been able to successfully steer their company over the past 20 years is their customer-focused approach, treating clients like family and closely listening to their needs and expectations.
"I've been working with JP Promotional Products for over 4 years now, and I couldn't be happier with the service they've provided,” says client Kerriane Eames, art director of New Visions for Public Schools in New York City.
“Their dedication to meeting our needs and providing high-quality promotional products has made them a trusted partner for our organization."
While anyone can place an order, it’s the service and follow-up that Pulver and Rosenthal are noted for, especially among local clients like The Business Council of Westchester, the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, and Feeding Westchester, among others.
Reaching this pivotal 20-year milestone is not only a testament to the hard work and determination that Pulver and Rosenthal have put into the business, but that good customer service works every time.

JP Promotional Products
This is the go-to promotional-products firm for many companies in Westchester and throughout the U.S. Creativity, quick turnaround, competitive pricing, and 40-plus years of combined industry experience are what set JP Promotional Products apart. The firm also prides itself on being able to provide both regular-rush and 24-hour rush services for a variety of key products. If you need to up your company’s profile with branding merch that ranges from hats, tees, backpacks, and coasters to thermoses, mousepads, and lanyards, this woman-owned, family-run business has what you’re looking for.
From chocolate, stuffed animals and Christmas ornaments, to snow plow services and road salt, goods and services posted this year on Ariba Discovery auger well for a robust holiday shopping season. Not to forget those buyers in search of 150 frozen turkeys, aluminum foil, and perhaps for vegans, $50,000 worth of protein powder.
Just like consumers, savvy business buyers are on the hunt for the best deals on items that top holiday shopping lists. This year NRF expects 2015 sales in November and December (excluding autos, gas and restaurants) to increase 3.7 percent totaling $630.5 billion -- exceeding the 10-year average of 2.5 percent. Online sales on Cyber Monday in the United States alone are predicted to reach $3 billion for the first time.
To take advantage of what could be a banner profitable year, many companies have already turned to Ariba Discovery, where they can immediately connect with nearly two million global sellers able to help them stock their shelves with the right products in time for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and beyond.
I recently talked with Robert Rosenthal, Chairman and CEO of New York-based JP Promotional Products, (pictured below with Shari Pulver, President), to find out how the holiday shopping season is going. His company sells a full line of imprinted promotional products that companies use to gift clients and employees. Rosenthal said Ariba Discovery has provided his organization with unprecedented access to customers of all sizes, extending sales from local insurance, real estate and other businesses to larger corporations like Lockheed Martin.
JP Promotional Products has been awarded one of 914INC.'s 2014 Small Business Awards!
The magazine whittled down the tall stack of nominations by searching for firms with consistent and significant success, a loyal customer base, and a devotion to their community. We're proud to be among the winners and recognized for the work we do! Congrats to all the winners!

Around 8:15am June 20th, we received a call from a frantic prospect.
She had ordered mugs from an online vendor for an event on June 21st.
When she received the mugs they were late and incorrectly done
She asked if we would be able to get her 72 white “C” handle 11 oz. coffee mugs for later that same day.
We placed her order with our vendor at 9:30am and the customer was able to pick them up at 5:30pm that same day.
The mug crisis was averted and another customer was satisfied.
