    Eliminate Your Apparel Competition 
    Presenters: Paul Sprunk and KC Fields

    In this webinar we will discuss:

    • Designing custom apparel your competition cannot quote, under cut your price, and steal your orders
    • Custom made apparel with a very low minimum quantity order of (50) pieces. You can mix mens' and ladies' sizes to reach minimum order
    • Custom private label for 10 cents - will eliminate all competition. Competition cannot identify your supplier!
    • Never lose another order again!
    • 21 Calendar DAY Delivery after approval. Pre-pro proof sent in 2-3 days
    • Reorders over 40%

    "Hey Buddy" Regional Association Challenge

    Many in the industry knew one of its most respected leaders, the late Francis “Fran” Ford, Jr., CAS and his memorable greeting, “Hey, Buddy!”. In remembrance of this industry icon, the Hey Buddy™ Bear was born. This adorable, fun loving teddy bear was designed with hearts on its paws, a “Hey Buddy™” imprinted t-shirt, and comes with a hang tag with an image of Fran and a special heartfelt message.

    CPPA is participating in a regional challenge that with every bear sold, we will donate the proceeds to the Promotional Products Education Foundation (PPEF) which provides college scholarships to promotional products industry employees and their children to support general studies and industry-related educational goals. 

    Help CPPA in this friendly regional challenge while also donating to a great cause.  You may purchase a bear for $10 and the following options are available:

    • Purchase a bear and have it donated to a child on behalf of your generous donation
    • Purchase a bear and pick it up at our Pints and Promos event in Brookeville, MD on 4/30/19
    • Purchase a bear and have it shipped to you
    • Donate a monetary amount to be given directly to PPEF

      Outsource Like a Supplier All-Star
      Presenter: Scott Nussinow
      (a webinar for Suppliers)

      Once considered only for large Suppliers, outsourcing back-office functions is now preferred for even Small-to-Medium sized companies. Outsourcing allows you to focus on proactive, sales-centric efforts, while a professional team manages these back-office functions:

      • artwork validation & manipulation (vectorizing, digitizing, redrawing, etc.)
      • proofing & approval process (prepare & send proofs, manage approvals, etc.)
      • order entry (in real-time, directly into your system)
      • printer file preparation (specific to your print processes)
      • mailbox & communications management with virtually seamless process integration

      Join industry veteran Scott A. Nussinow, MAS for this enlightening and educational presentation, featuring an overview of outsourcing, how it works, and how it can simplify your operations – and your life.
