“The ELA (Environmental Leadership Award) event went over with huge success on Tuesday night and everyone was very happy to receive all of the awards and gifts you provided for us. Thanks for helping make the recognition and memories of our event a positive and lasting impression for all the winners and attendees.”
David Lewon, Corporate Sustainability, Chrysler
“I’ve worked with Promotional Impact for several years now. My criteria for using a promotional vendor includes: exceptional servicing of the client (me), a definite interest in what amenity I’m trying to buy, deadline and budget oriented, and an ability to find unique, “out of the box” amenities. Karen has consistently provided me with all the above in spades. “Her energy and enthusiasm truly charges up the process of seeking out amenity items. Their organization has never failed me - even if a product wasn’t exactly what I wanted, they made sure I was happy or made it right. It’s a joy to work with Promotional Impact and my department will continue to use them as our premiere promotional vendor.”
Libby Ferin, Steelcase Health
Green Giftz has been wonderful to work with! They are a great partner in helping provide gifts that are environmentally friendly, great quality and very timely. I love the creativity of the girls we work with and are always willing to go the extra mile in making an item customized to our brand.
Hilary Messink, Steelcase Health
Over the past eleven years, I have been the program leader for the Steelcase Merchandising/Customer Visit Program. In that capacity, I have had the pleasure to work closely with Promotional Impact on numerous promotional materials and projects. In all instances, Karen and her team have met or exceeded my expectations, and I feel very confident recommending them.
Specifically, we have worked closely together on a redesign/update on our Steelcase merchandising program, which resulted in a cohesive, vital merchandising blend that supports our global branding. The success of the program is further evidenced by both the continuing strong demand from our internal and dealer audiences, as well as allowing us to achieve “break-even” from a cost perspective.
I have been particularly impressed with the friendly, professional approach I have come to expect from Promotional Impact. At any given time, we have had multiple promotional projects in development and production, and they have always managed to deliver high quality products and services, on time and on budget. In addition, they have demonstrated their commitment to sustainability by meeting Steelcase’s high environmental standards. I have also witnessed firsthand their strong commitment to the West Michigan community through their involvement and support with numerous local non-profit causes, such as the American Heart Association.
Based on these experiences, I recommend Promotional Impact / Green Giftz whole-heartedly. I am confident that they would be an excellent choice for any of your marketing and promotional needs.
Kathleen E. Redder, Steelcase Inc.
Green Giftz has been a great partner in helping us find solutions to best execute the Amway signature. Because of their understanding and support of our brand standards combined with their commitment to excellence, we have branded merchandise we can truly be proud of.
Jaida Vaught, Amway
Green Giftz has worked diligently to produce high quality products through the reuse of "scrap" materials from West Michigan companies. By combining creative product design with skilled local resources they emulate sustainable business practices to minimize waste, transportation and landfill. I have seen how well these products are received by clients at local Sustainable Business Events. In addition, the pride that is shown when a company is able to explain to their clients the sustainability story imbedded in the products brings an added dimension to reusing materials.

Rod Larsen, Geiger International
“Promotional Impact/Green Giftz has been a constant, strong, and viable supporter of Local First and our West Michigan communities for years. It is with their support that programs like our Local First Sustainable Business Conference have become a successful event – reaching and educating over 600 locally owned businesses and business owners within the past three years. It is businesses like Promotional Impact/Green Giftz that make our community an engaged and diverse one – ready to support the neighborhoods in which we live and work.”
Meghan Disselkoen, Local First of West Michigan
“I have been working with Promotional Impact for some years now, and of course, just keep going back. They understand my needs from an International perspective and are able to work flexibly to accommodate different time zones, along with delivering a high quality product. Karen has gone out of her way to help me out with tight deadlines and last-minute changes. It is a great comfort to know that I am able to rely on Promotional Impact so I can concentrate my energies elsewhere.”

“I just wanted to let you know that your tumblers were a big hit here at Chrysler headquarters today, and the culmination of our ‘Earth Week’ activities. We passed them out at our two main cafeterias and they were gone in no time at all! We’ve received a lot of great feedback. Thanks so much for pulling this together so quickly for us – we really appreciated it.”
Mary Gauthier, Chrysler Group LLC Sustainability Communications
“I just wanted to write to say what a great job your staff does over there and how friendly and efficient you all are. We love our totes and they will be given out to homeless teens I West Michigan with “survival” items in them like toothpaste, tooth brushes, emergency blankets, granola bars, etc. Again, thanks to Lauren especially for your updates on order status. I’m sure it is a small order compared to others. Hats off to your staff! No wonder you keep winning awards!!”
Christina Scarpino, Every Woman’s Place
"We are so pleased with the Broadway Grand Rapids recycled banner tote bags. Thanks for diligently and patiently working with us. This is an exciting re-use of a whole lot of promotional material that otherwise ends up in a landfill."
Mike Lloyd, Broadway Grand Rapids
"We absolutely loved working with Green Giftz. She was very responsive and helpful. The product was of the highest quality and our employees loved the tumblers. They were a hit! We will be using Green Giftz again in the future - a great company with a fantastic mission."

"I can not tell you how much I appreciate Green Giftz. They are by far the best promotional gift dealer in Grand Rapids. Their customer service team is responsive, creative and easy to work with, and their products are equally as impressive. They offer a great variety of "green" eco-friendly options, as well as high-end apparel and gifts."
Kalena Rouse, A.J Veneklasen
