Impact Promotions/Uniform Pros
Promotional Products Make a Lasting Impression
It all started when John Phyllis was 18 years old and he got a pen with a logo on it. That was when John decided he wanted to be in the promotional advertising business. Shortly after graduating with his business degree from Lakehead University John started PJS Marketing and entered the embroidered and imprinted clothing, promotional products and uniform industry. After leaving the industry for several years John started Impact Promotions 8 years ago as a home based business. Two years later the company grew substantially and John moved to the current location at 1018 Victoria Avenue East and added Uniform Pros.
Today Impact Promotions is moving down the road to the old Fitness Plus building at 1008 Victoria Avenue East. The move will allow the business to expand. Included in the new building will be a large production area with a new multi-head embroidery machine and a six colour, six station screen printing machine adding to the existing embroidery and digital printing equipment. Also, the new building will have a large showroom, expanded office space and a large parking lot on the corner of Victoria Avenue and Vickers Street.
Embroidered or imprinted clothing, promotional products or uniforms are used for brand or team awareness, employee recognition, customer incentives, trade show giveaways or corporate apparel.
Impact Promotions new location will increase speed of delivery while maintaining quality products and great service as they grow. Leaving a lasting impression through promotional products can be done with the organizations logo on travel mugs, usb drives, golf balls, bags, pens and trade show items like tablecloths, lanyards and name badges. For clothing Impact Promotions embroiders or imprints items like caps, toques, t-shirts, sweatshirts, polos, jackets and hi-vis safety apparel.
Uniform Pros is staying at the existing location and expanding into new brands like Koi and Barco. The core focus for the business is uniforms for healthcare, including items like scrubs, lab coats, stethoscopes and other accessories. Uniforms for hospitality including chef wear, server wear, aprons and accessories. Uniforms for work including hi-vis shirts, jackets, vests and hats.
As well Uniform Pros does uniforms for fire departments, police, paramedics, security, and aviation to name a few.
Uniform Pros stocks many of these items and will be expanding their inventory for a larger retail space and stock for their online orders from uniformpros.ca.
Uniform Pros does many uniform programs including sizing, hemming and cresting, embroidery and imprinting the organizations logo.
The new Impact Promotions and expanded Uniform Pros will be complete in the summer of 2015. Currently both businesses are operating at 1018 Victoria Avenue East next to Holland Bakery.
