PMSI offers great products, prices, and timely delivery. Their factories both here in the U.S. and overseas do an excellent job when it comes to customization and logo colors. I consider Julia Gagnon, whom I have worked with for over 10 yrs., a great asset and partner! She has come up with some great ideas when I wasn’t sure what direction to go. Julia has also been able to help me with any last minute request while working within my budget and delivery time frame. PMSI is my #1 go to place for my promotional needs. - Kanwal Saluja - Manager, Registration & Meeting Services - BOMA

As purchaser of promotional items for the Ocean City MD Convention & Visitors Bureau/Dept. of Tourism, I often need a variety of items to present to our CVB members,  tour groups or meeting and tour planners. PMSI offers me great pricing on these items but also important to me is the service. I can ask for ideas from my representative Erica or just select something from the site. I am able to request as many samples as I like and receive them within two days in most cases.  Erica gets me estimates on price, shipping and set up usually within the hour! I get accurate proofs and the project is moved forward immediately. There is just such an ease of use and service with PMSI that keeps drawing me back for any of our needs. - Norma Dobrowolski - Destination Sales Manager
Imagine the comfort in knowing that things will be taken care of. Well, that’s how I feel when it’s time for me to start ordering supplies for my annual conference through PMSI.  For the last couple of years, I have built a professional relationship with Erica Sylvia who has been fantastic to work with getting things for me when I need it. Having this kind of confidence makes my job much easier. Thank you PMSI and Erica for being there for me. -  Nina Humes - Conference Manager - Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC)

The Florida Association of Mortgage Professionals, “FAMP” has used the services of Professional Marketing Services for many years.  They are our “Go To” team for all of the promotional items we need to add punch and name recognition at our largest annual event, the FAMP State Convention and Trade Show.  The word “Professional” in their name says it all.  Their service is always timely, the staff is cordial, skilled in their tasks, and communicate well.  The team consistently strives to please and always delivers more than promised.  Add their competitive pricing on top of all that, and you’ve got a winning combination.  - Frank Cicione, CMC, CRMS - Florida Association of Mortgage Professionals
I have been working with PMSI for the past 7 years. Whenever my company is looking for a new promotional item, PMSI is always my first stop. They have the best selection and customer service. My rep Erica is always extremely quick to respond, and if they don't happen to carry the item I'm looking for, she will take the time to talk to their other vendors to see if they can supply the item. Every order always arrives on time and in perfect condition. - Kara Noble - - Marketing Director

We have ordered conference bags and lanyards for our conferences from PMSI for many years now.  They have been extremely accommodating and flexible with our orders and their prices can’t be beat!  It’s a pleasure working with Julia and everyone at PMSI and makes the task of ordering items for our conferences less stressful as I know we are getting the best quality at the best price. - Deborah (D.J.) Haman, CMP - Senior Meetings & Exhibits Manager - American Association of Orthodontists
I have been in the Events industry for about 15 years and I have worked for a variety of companies, from non-profits to Wall Street event management, to associations.  Although my job level and responsibilities have varied from smaller events to managing every event the organization has in place throughout the year, one thing has always been the same - the need for promotional items.  Whether it was small "trinkets" such as keychains or larger sponsor items such as tote bags, it continues to be an overall, integral part of the event industry.  As such, I have worked with many different "promotional" companies and there is only one company that I have used consistently for at least the last six years out of the eight years that I have worked for my current employer.....and that is PMSI.  It's not just the products that draw me but also the quality and most importantly, the customer service.  That, customer service is the one thing that really truly keeps a customer loyal.  I want to thank Mary Barrios for all of her hard work and assistance with my orders and general needs. Another important factor is that I can count on PMSI for ideas, suggestions.  When you work with a company consistently, they understand who your members are and what they expect in terms of promotional products.  I know that when I email Mary/ PMSI, I will not only get the highest level of customer service but also a range of quality suggestions, which lead to quality products. - Alana Alissa Yoshiko Anderson - Director of Events - SNAME

Nolan, CAE, IOM, AMC Source
 PMSI has been a loyal supplier to the American Diabetes Association for nearly 10 years. Their pricing and service are unsurpassed.
