Posted March 20, 2018 by Mike Wilkos

Distributors benefit with free shipping to any Vantage decoration facility

AVENEL, N.J. (March 20, 2018): Vantage Apparel, award-winning decorator and industry top source for custom logo apparel, is now an approved decorator for the SanMar PSST program at each of its locations in Avenel, New Jersey; St. Louis, Missouri; and Santa Ana, California.

Distributors will benefit from free shipping into Vantage, no restocking fees, and a spoilage protection plan among other great benefits.

All three locations are approved to decorate on The North Face® items. At its New Jersey facility, Vantage will decorate SanMar items with embroidery, sequin embroidery, laser applique, reverse applique, and laser tech patches. Distributors can also take advantage of single-piece embroidery in New Jersey, which is a perfect solution for on-demand webstore programs.

"The market continues to shift to small orders and faster fulfillment," commented Vantage President, Ira Neaman. "When distributors select Vantage as a PSST decorator, they will benefit from SanMar's efficiencies and Vantage's award-winning decoration at our three strategically-located decoration facilities. This will make it easier and more cost-effective for distributors to get a large variety of brands and products decorated and in the hands of their clients in less time."

Vantage Apparel has been a leading innovator in the promotional apparel industry since 1977. With over 1,200 embroidery heads, Vantage is the largest contract decorator in North America and has won the PPAI award for embroidery for 22 years in a row as well as the ASI Distributor Choice award for decorated apparel for 10 years.
