“We are excited to forge a partnership with a company that has a track record and reputation as strong as Productions Graphics,” said Eric Belcher, CEO of InnerWorkings and a member of Counselor’s Power 50. “As a result of this acquisition, InnerWorkings will have an even more powerful global footprint.

As part of its deal with InnerWorkings, CEO Christophe Delaune has agreed to a long term contract to remain with the organization. “Joining the preeminent global print management provider, which shares our vision for growth by servicing the needs of major corporations, is a tremendous opportunity,” said Delaune. “Partnering with InnerWorkings allows us to offer additional services and global solutions to our existing roster of large multinational clients.”

Making You Money: What ASI is all about.

Promotional products, also known as ad specialties, make up a $20.5 billion dollar industry and are used by virtually every business in America. Why? Items like mugs, pens and t-shirts are memorable and provide a better cost per impression for advertisers than almost every major marketing effort like prime time TV, magazines and radio.

With so many businesses buying ad specialties there is a huge opportunity for professionals looking to make great money running a promotional products distributorship. It’s easy and inexpensive to get started and you can work from home.
