Why should we choose to work with Ethical Profiling Ltd. over any other promotional products supplier?
Ethical Profiling Ltd. vets all of the products we offer for the purposes of guaranteeing quality and ensuring social and environmental responsibility at manufacturing. Most promotional products suppliers simply link their websites to the 10’s of thousands of products offered through industry platforms such as ASI and PPAI or PPPC. We won’t and can’t do this as there is no way of vetting all of those products through our social compliance requirements and/or of knowing what quality these items are without first seeing them and then asking the supplier numerous questions about them.
This varies from product to product but most of the items we offer have a 4-6 week production time and 1 week for delivery. If you need your goods faster than that, let us know and we will try our best to accommodate that.
We are always interested in learning what other suppliers are able to offer products for and are willing to price match provided that the product and quantity is the same. If we need to send an audit team in to ensure that a product you must have comes from a compliant manufacturer, we are transparent with the cost of doing so and may even absorb that cost if we recognize that this supplier provides opportunity for future business.
We do not include shipping costs in prices quoted as we service clients all over the world, some need them express shipped, some incur duties, etc…
Yes, we regularly work with clients to conceptualize, design and produce custom pieces. Wherever and whenever possible, we encourage our clients to look at their waste stream and we help them upcycle that waste into a viable promotional or gifting item. We are also a leader in the industry for custom apparel – especially for items built from recycled pet, organic cotton, modal and other environmentally conscious fabrics.
Yes, we firmly believe in designing “closed loop” programs and we encourage clients to send back any items that they no longer have any use for. We are partnered with *De-Brand for the responsible recycling, upcycling, or disposal of our clients programs bearing in mind that protecting their mark is of utmost importance.
Yes, we need all logos in vector format. A high resolution EPS file or a vector based PDF or AI file are the preferred formats.
