4 REASONS YOUR ORGANIZATION NEEDS A COMPANY STORE
1. COMPLETE CONTROL OVER YOUR BRANDED PRODUCTS AND ARTWORK
Create custom branded products with pre-approved pricing.
Track spending and maintain budgets easily because your organization’s promotional products are sold in the same place.
Limit access to products or collections to specific employees, offices, or departments.
Ensure consistency when your organization uses pre-approved logos and products.
2. CONVENIENT SHIPPING OPTIONS
Items ship from our CA warehouse at least three times per week (daily for expedited orders).
Your team can order merchandise direct from our warehouse. Orders are shipped within 24 hours of order placement.
3. SAVE TIME AND MONEY
We guarantee that the right promotional products will arrive, on time and at the correct location.
Save time by not having to design from scratch whenever team members need new custom-branded promotional products.
Your departments or offices can share information about your promotional product designs and sales.
4. REAL-TIME REPORTS (SPENDING AND INVENTORY)
Track monthly, quarterly, and yearly merchandising spend by department and office location.
Real-time reports tell you exactly how many items of each product are currently in inventory, with complete order details.
C. Department Microsite
If a full-blown company store seems a little overblown right now, you should consider a microsite. A microsite is a scaled down version of a company store. Microsites can be used to manage on-boarding, recruitment, special event and pre-order distribution and fulfillment activities.
In-House Pick and Pack
Your product is created! What now? Social Imprints’ in-house fulfillment services offer you the quickest possible process for getting the merchandise to your customers. We’ve got you covered for additional finishing services such as packing and shipping. You can sleep soundly knowing your delivery pipeline is in experienced hands.

Products with Purpose
“People don’t buy what you do. They buy why you do it.”
Let’s talk about connection. Today’s customers prefer brands that have a mission. People don’t just connect to a company’s products or services – they connect to the story behind those products and services. If you want to build a thriving enterprise, you have to identify, embrace, embody, and articulate a brand purpose that inspires your audience to connect with you.
A recent example of this trend is Airbnb’s recent World Tour merchandise program. An Airbnb team member asked Social Imprints to provide Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky with customized luggage tags and scarves that would be handed out during his tour of London, New York, Cape Town, New Delhi, Beijing, and Shanghai. These high-quality items would need to be printed to match very stringent artwork specifications – and they had to be completed within two weeks.
Inspired by Airbnb’s 2017 Super Bowl ad that featured the hashtag campaign #WeAccept, Social Imprints blended the ad’s poignant social messaging into this project.
Social Imprints selected the Knotty Tie Company as our vendor of choice for the project, not only for their ability to produce full-color printing on scarves in the allotted time, but because of their powerful mission. Knotty Tie Company creates dignified employment opportunities for resettled skilled refugees.
Choosing Knotty Tie demonstrated Airbnb’s commitment to social responsibility. Social Imprints created a custom insert card highlighting Knotty Ties’ social mission as well as Social Imprints’ mission to provide higher-paying professional employment to at-risk adults in need of a second chance. Partnering with socially responsible vendors such as Knotty Ties and Social Imprints powerfully enhances Airbnb’s corporate image as a socially responsible company.
Social Imprints has become the go-to printer for many of the nation’s top brands that employ high-quality merchandise as a meaningful part of their marketing strategy.
We are masters at product development and international sourcing and logistics. We will curate the perfect product mix for your event, product launch, or corporate identity giveaway. We pride ourselves on creating strategic merchandising plans and branding packages that will enhance your brand awareness and boost employee engagement.
Social Imprints takes a highly collaborative approach to helping our clients solve their creative branded merchandise issues. We’ll craft the perfect products for your unique needs.
When Google was looking to engage its employees and their families on “Bring Your Parents to Work Day,” they called on Social Imprints for branded merchandise. Instead of creating the typical swag bag giveaways and handing them out at the event, Social Imprints built a custom online store that allowed parents and employees to pre-order items for pickup the day of the event. We created an interactive swag experience instead of just another swag give-away.”
Social Imprints has created memorable retail stores and pop-ups for some of the nation’s top brands. We do it all – from product creation and point of sale, to merchandising and signage. We even created an on-site staffing plan for Maker Faire, where more than a hundred thousand makers descended on the San Mateo County Event Center for this must-see two-day Bay Area event. Maker Faire offers a family-friendly celebration, a showcase of innovative projects, and a meeting place for the creative minds behind them.
Social Imprints created and helped staff dozens of pop-up stores that sold a full line of retail products. The products ranged from T-shirts with fun quotes such as “Void Your Warranty,” to beaker mugs and industrial drafting pencils.
