We believe that an outrageous deadline and having fun aren’t mutually exclusive

DELIVERING ANOther dimension of delight

We’ve been around for nearly 60 years and our beliefs are still the same: creativity with focus, hustle with heart, make it better and integrity always. We believe that every piece of a promotion matters equally, right down to how every box is packed, because each detail—big or small—contributes to a delightful, engaging experience.

OUR HISTORY: EXCEPTIONAL FROM InCEPtion

Promotional Spring has come a long way since our early days as a garage shop. That was 1955 and Promotional Spring was named Mound Printing. It wasn’t until 1984 that Wade Riggs bought the company, having a vision for what it could become: a premiere printing source. Wade began the company with three employees and three local customers, growing over the next three decades to over 30 employees and hundreds of customers with national and international footprints. He passed the torch to his son, Dennis in the early 2000s, and Dennis has built upon that strong foundation adding technology, capabilities and expertise with the same goal in mind: to delight the customer.
