Hello! My name is Valerie Atkin, and I am the President of dkspecialties. You have landed on the single best website for promotional products in the world. This is my story – the story of a hobby that became a company. A company that lives by a Mission.
Once upon a time…I was a radio newscaster and theater actor. As is so often the case with radio and acting, I found myself working the front office more often than working in front of an audience. Radio stations are notoroius for promotional giveaways – t-shirts, sweatshirts, mugs, jugs, pins, pens, key-chains, hats, caps, you name it, the radio station put its name on it. Part of my job was to find the people to supply these promotional giveaways. It didn’t take long for me to discover that quality of the products we purchased was dismal. Even worse we put our name these inferior products and gave them away. On top of the poor quality was the exorbitant price the station paid for these inferior goods. I took on the challenge of finding high quality products at sensible prices – from vendors who would deliver. I don’t just mean physically deliver, but deliver what we asked for, in the way we asked for it and looking as we expected it to look. I mean who wants to get 10,000 t-shirts with your call letters upside down and backwards?
I found I enjoyed the search - a bit like being a detective but without the constant danger. I located the suppliers that met my company's needs. Suppliers who delivered as promised, no surprises. I shared my new-found skill (well, my obsession really) with friends and "dk" was born. I had plenty of work, turns out there are lots of people who need somebody like me. These friends, small business owners and colleagues, recruited me to do the work of finding excellent personalized promotional items of the highest quality at reasonable prices. Who would have guessed that this would become the #1 provider of promotion giveaways called dkspecialties.
dkspecialities, for all your professional and personal promotional needs.
