At Ironmark, we love to entertain. Each year, we’re proud to host several open-house client events; from production tours to "Lunch & Learn" seminars, we really believe in an open door policy. We’re already planning our 2018 agenda, so stay on the look-out for news of our next big thing.
In 2017, our signature event was something truly memorable. In vintage Oktoberfest fashion, twenty vendors and several hundred invited guests gathered to raise a glass together at our Suds & Swag Corporate Gift Show & Beer Tasting.

The event, which took place on October 19, transformed Ironmark’s print production area into a bustling trade show floor, where visitors browsed through a highly-curated selection of corporate gift vendors – while sampling tavern fare and sipping local microbrew samples, of course!
It’s never too early to start reviewing corporate gift options for the holidays, and October is a great time to begin the process. Orders placed before mid-November are more likely to be in stock, arrive on time and avoid rush charges.
“The goal was to get business owners thinking about their end-of-year gifts for clients, customers, employees, etc.,” sales account executive and promo product expert Karen Ward said. “There are so many options out there when it comes to corporate gifts that it can be a little intimidating sometimes. This event is fantastic because it gives people an opportunity to see product samples in person, talk to some true gift experts and really hone in on the perfect item for their needs.”
The event featured a wide variety of drinkwear, writing instruments, tech items, gourmet chocolates, custom journals, crystal awards, outerwear and name brand apparel, just to name a few. Attendees were also encouraged to participate in a social media contest and enter a raffle to win high-quality promo items and sporting event tickets.
“We’re always excited to bring people in the door,” said senior vice president of sales and marketing Matt Marzullo. “We really want our customers to feel that we appreciate them and that we’re here to serve their needs. Corporate gifts are on a lot of people’s minds right now, and we want to help them through that selection process as best we can.”
