In 1997, Rama Beerfas, founder and Chief Solutions Specialist of Lev Promotions, started a finished hand-craft business named Lev Designs. Rama designed and produced t-shirts, tote bags, aprons, magnets, jewelry and more and sold these items at craft fairs, community events and online.
One day, one of our regular craft item customers asked if we could design and produce a custom t-shirt for her organization's event. They only needed 6 shirts for the staff - and no one really wanted to produce only 6 custom designs screen printed shirts for them; or, if they were willing to do it, the cost was exorbitant. Using Lev Designs' professional-grade heat press, Rama was able to fufill their request at a reasonable price.
Well, 6 months later, this same organization needed imprinted balloons. They asked Rama if she could do it and she said yes. Of course, using a heat press to print balloons was not going to work, so she did some research and found a way to get it done. This was how Lev Designs became a promotional products business.
From the start, Rama felt that a promotional product should be more than just something you give away; it should have marketing value. Combining her business background with her creative side allowed Lev Designs to offer promotional solutions that provided not just "fun stuff," but the possibility for tracking ROI and/or ROO because the items were chosen with thought to the business side of them; not just the fun side.
In 2002, Lev Designs became Lev Promotions, a full-service marketing agency offering promotional products, marketing consulting services, and marketing and customer service training programs.
From imprinted promotional products (over 600,000 items to choose from), to trade show planning and training, to graphic design, to designing stragetic marketing plans, to branding/rebranding, to online marketing, to publicity to pinpointing your target market and much more, Lev Promotions can provide or help you round out your marketing solutions.
