If you're looking for promotional merchandise for your company, product or brand, there is no shortage of promotional products stores to shop at. Action Printing, Inc. is one such online retailer. Since the mid-1990s, Action Printing has offered hundreds of thousands of promotional products. Everything from T-shirts, hats and tote bags to jewelry, tool, pens, calendars, mugs and much, much more. They've earned a spot in our review of the best branded product manufacturers.
While Action Printing offers a wide range of products, there are some problems with the service. The one that almost leaps off the screen is that Action Printing's website is in dire need of modernization. At the bottom of the page, the company's footer reads, "Providing custom promotional products for over 17 years!" – and it feels like the website hasn't been updated in several of those years. The truth of this feeling is revealed when you click on the Master Catalog tab, which takes you to the page that reads, "The New 2009 Master Catalog is here." Action Printing is literally a time capsule of itself.
Action Printing offers all types of imprints, including engraving, screen printing, embroidery and full-color printing. Unfortunately, the website does not offer a search for items by printing method, which means that if you're looking for an item to engrave or embroider, you may be searching for a long time. To make matters worse, some items that can be imprinted in a number of different ways often only mention one printing method. For example, many metal products only mention screen printing options, even though they can also be engraved.
The company also does not offer graphic design services, which most of its competitors do. This means you'll have to have a print-ready image to send them or you will need to hire your own graphic designer to get the logo ready for printing, which can add a significant amount onto your promotional products bill.
Action Printing offers a vast amount of quality logoed products. If you can forgive the antiquated website layout and lack of graphic design service, this company will fill your promotional product needs.
Action Printing has been in the business for more than a decade.
The company's website is outdated, awkward and in need of an update.
Despite its shortcomings, Action Printing will fulfill any order you send them to your satisfaction.
