We’re Branding Studios, a different kind of promotional products company. We don’t just slap logos on stuff. We find and create items that make people feel great about your brand. Promotional products, when done right, forge an emotional connection. They turn into things that people use every day. And that’s powerful stuff.

Founded in 2009, Branding Studios is a boutique shop with big-firm experience. We’re sticklers for getting right back to you, making sure every detail is correct, taking stress out of the equation, and hitting deadlines. We never wing it. We’re always on it. We like to blur the lines and imagine we work right next door to you.

We are proud to be a Preferred Premiums Supplier to the National Hockey League.
