Tampa Bay Area Promo Items Catalogs for Local Government

Local governments try to buy locally to support the local economy. Sometimes they contact Pacesetter Media about promotional items, awards, gifts, signs, and printing. However, promotional items are sold by local businesses, but they’re typically produced in other states and in other countries.

Here’s what I suggest to keep more of our tax dollars local.

How The Promo Items Business Works

Promotional items are sold by local distributors, BUT they’re imprinted by suppliers located throughout the country and throughout the world.

A good idea for local government is to choose promotional items that are imprinted locally. This isn’t always possible, but when it is, here are some suppliers (imprinters) with operations around Tampa Bay.

Tampa Area Promotional Items Suppliers (imprinters)

You can’t buy from the following companies directly; they sell only through distributors. But you can look at their online catalogs and know you’re supporting both a local distributor and a local supplier when you select items from their catalogs.
