Packing
We treat every order as if it was our own. We prioritize eco packaging, such as kraft tape, in all we do. If you need custom packaging or even hand-written notes, we can do that too. Your swag is in good hands.

Shipping
Whether you need 5 or 5000 items sent out, we have the crew to support you and the carriers (UPS, FedEx, USPS, DHL, LTL). We understand what it takes to comply with all the nuances of proper shipping.

Inventory Control

  • We look to ensure the material, the logo, the size, etc. not only match what was expected, but that the quality matches as well.
  • We count 1% of the order to ensure it matches spec. If that % fails, we count 2% more.
  • If the incoming count does not match the expected count, a second person counts.
  • We won’t check anything in that does not have the correct paperwork.
  • Pickers use tablets to ensure to the item being picked matches what was ordered.
  • Cycle counts: we blind count every day, meaning our team counts items without knowing the quantity that should be there, ensuring our team does not lead with a number they expect.
  • We count items with stock under 50 ensuring the items you use regularly and are close to being out of stock are always accurate. An item that has 10 left will cause you problems if you need those 10, but only 8 exist compared to an item that has 50,000 in stock and you need 100 for the tradeshow tomorrow.
  • Our packer is a different person than the picker, meaning every order is double checked.
  • Each picked item is individually compared on screen to the item ordered.
  • Any discrepancy is set aside for a 3rd person to review

Speed + Shipping Intelligence

  • If your order is placed by noon, it ships the same day.
  • Our software calculates the cheapest provider while still considering shipping speed, saving you money on every shipment sent out.
