3Quality Guaranteed
After more than six years in business, we are proud to say that we are 98.9% error free. There is no shame in confessing that we have made mistakes. In the rare occasion that there is an error, we take the necessary steps to fix it and ensure that it never happens again. We audit steps in our processes and set requirements such as a supervised reviewing of a step before a task can be moved down in the production process. We stand behind our products and services 100%.
424 Hour Rush Services Available
If your needs require a rush production to meet an event date, we have many products such as custom t-shirts or promotional products that can be produced within one day or sooner. Please contact us to inquire.
530+ Years Experience
With offerings that exceed 1,000,000 products, we have partnered with the absolute best in our industry. Our combined experience far exceeds 30 years. We understand the ins and outs of the promotional marketing world and are trained to handle just about any request. What makes us stand out is not only the experience in business, but also the continuing education that Zee Group provides to its team members to help serve you better.
6Prompt and Timely Delivery of Orders
We offer 100% on-time delivery for orders and we mean it. For example, if there is an in-hands date for an order of custom polo shirts, we make sure to communicate with production in advance and calculate the time in transit to ensure that your order arrives on time. If there are any issues with the timeline, we are sure to communicate that. If we have to personally hand deliver an order, we will do that.
7Accurate Order Fulfillment
All merchandise is checked for proper color, size, item number and is verified once it arrives from our supplier to ensure that it is exactly what was requested. Each order is carefully checked with a packing slip to avoid errors.
810,000+ Supplier Network
To avoid any liabilities, all of our vendors go through a vicious screening process before we carry their product line. We source the majority of our promotional items from our supplier network because it is impossible to fulfill the capacity in house for any marketing company. There is no firm that is large enough to offer the depth of product offering as we carry. We work with expert factories for each product category to deliver you the best final product.
9Competitive Pricing
We are in a billion-dollar market and it seems like there are about two competitors on every block in America. Some are one person shops and some are multimillion dollar agencies. Despite how big or small, they are all in the market to compete. We are proud to say that we are not the cheapest promotional product company in America. We are in business to make money. With that being said, we deliver results and can compete with any company if we need to. However, we would much rather work with clients that understand the value in having a marketing partner versus a company who sells “stuff” to them.
10Variety of Product Selections and Options
With over one million product offerings we are confident we have a solution for you!
11Proofs Provided with Every Order
We supply each and every project with a proof. A proof will be supplied in a digital format which is most common. For larger orders, we provide preproduction samples of the final product and require approval before the order is placed into production to ensure that you have reviewed all the details of the project.
12Availability of Samples
We encourage ordering samples with all of your orders so that you can physically see and feel the products. It is also encouraged to verify the product color to make sure that it is consistent with your brand guidelines. Ask about our free sample program.
13All Charges Clearly Explained
With so many companies offering online ecommerce, it is easy to fall into their trap. The website may read a certain price, but at the end of the checkout there are surprise set-up fees, artwork fees, handling fees, and other fees that you did not expect. Investing so much time in designing your custom t-shirt and not going through with the order makes you feel like you wasted your time. We clearly outline all the charges with full transparency. We understand what it is like to be on the other side.
14Ability to Supply Custom Work
We have a phenomenal in-house graphic designer! Ann has the ability to create, alter and make any changes you would like to your design. We can create custom designs from scratch with call to actions and messages. We have designed trade show booths, t-shirts, banners, conference books and entire company year-books from scratch.
15Time Saving Benefit
Your account rep will work closely with you to understand the objective of your marketing campaign and then provide recommendations to suit your criteria. We will save you an enormous amount of time from searching online, trying to figure out who is reputable and taking a risk on whether the product will actually sustain your logo imprint for more than a few weeks or if they will be reliable and deliver your order on time. We manage everything for you- from cradle to grave.
