About Us

There are a number of promotional item companies available online, and dkspecialties is the right choice. Why? We have reliable sources, from concept to completion for any ideas and products our clients are looking to have produced and delivered.

Our family-owned company has a reputation for delivering world-class service and it’s because of the commitment of the company's leadership to its mission: to offer the best client care and personal service.

The vision came from President and Owner Valerie Atkin, who started her career in news casting and theater. And as part of her responsibilities, she would purchase giveaways to promote the station, like T-shirts, mugs, pins, pens and more. When sleuthing, she was seeking quality – she wanted to give away items that everyone would keep. This way, the recipient would enjoy the gift and he/she would see the brand and associate positive thoughts with the item – textbook marketing, and on a greater scale.

She found that relationships were the key to getting the best products in a timely fashion. And, she built rapport with vendors and that network enabled her to shift her focus from the entertainment industry to developing a thriving business sharing promotional products with people who wanted to improve their branding and recognition from the local community to world-wide.

We wear many hats – both literally and figuratively, as those are one of the thousands of items our clients order.

Within our network, Valerie has brought in graphic artists, factories and freight companies who each will contribute top-level service. It’s an expectation that each deliver their best performance, as the customer is the priority for all of us in this cooperative system.

Return customers and referrals are what keep our organization busy, and we are grateful for their loyalty.

“I’m always impressed with the superior service that Valerie and her team deliver. They treat me like I’m their only customer, and surely they have several clients. Because of her commitment to finding us the best products, everyone tells me that we have the best promotional items,” local credit union employee Alethia said. “We have worked with dkspecialties for more than a dozen years and we know that the quality is in our relationship, the hand-picked items we purchase and the dedication to excellence.”
