Promotional and advertising materials include a wide variety of products carrying some form of "to-order customization," ranging from small items such as pens, stationery and coffee mugs to larger items such as apparel, sporting goods, and building signage.
All of these products typically undergo a final stage of operations such as painting, screen printing, embroidery or other customizations to meet specific and unique consumer requirements.
