Items4Action specializes in helping companies, non-profits, individuals and candidates build and manage their political advocacy and campaign programs with branded promotional products. But we’re different than most companies that merely offer promotional products.
We started Items4Action with the goal of helping people find ways to promote political advocacy once we discovered that there weren’t a lot of places (or any) where people could find advocacy-based promotional products. When clients are looking to grow their programs and leverage promotional items to get people to take action, that’s where we come into play.
The benefit to you is that we do the work for you. Rather than hand you a catalog or post thousands of items on our website, we’ll talk about “why” you need promotional products, then we’ll hand-select a grouping of items that will be perfect for your upcoming support campaign or thank you gifts. No more hours poring over boring catalogs. You simply choose the items you want from our “short list” and we’ll order and deliver them for you.
