“We love these 4imprint products! The Mini-Grip Tape Measure and the Power Clip have been so popular at our graduate fairs and school visits, we have ordered them a second time (and plan to order more in the future!). The pennants are a first for us. Already they are becoming popular to the point that we are having to hold them in “secure” location to make sure we have them for our events! The color on every item is great and holds true to our university colors of black and gold. Thank you, 4imprint, for always making the ordering process easy and the products quality!” – Graduate Studies in Education
“I give these laptop briefcase bags to our college choir students, with an additional iron-on tag on the back of the bag, which has their name and folder number, at the beginning of their time at Jackson College. These bags not only hold and protect their assigned oversize folder, but also hold their laptop and other materials as they wish. The students immediately feel like they are part of a very professional organization and carry these bags with pride almost every day!” – Richard from Vocal Point Jackson College
“The cups were a huge success at our campus-wide event! The students were so excited about the cups changing colors that they started using them immediately! We were surprised to see the straws changing colors as well. Such a great item and 4imprint was a dream to work with. Their team was so wonderful, and their customer service was impeccable. We are definitely going to use 4imprint again and are recommending them to our friends and colleagues. Thanks again 4imprint!!” – Karen
