5 THINGS YOUR E-COMMERCE STORE NEEDS

How often has your team sat around the table kitting promotional materials for an upcoming event?

Have you ever had to go through the sky high boxes of t-shirts to find the appropriate sizes only to have to polybag and label them before handing them out to your sales team?

How many phone calls do you receive from employees wanting to know how to get a polo shirt or a padfolio with the company’s name on it?

An online packaging or promotional product store brings you comprehensive tools and features that allow for end-to-end integration with your systems. Whether you need a basic site with just a few packaging and promotional items or a full blown, completely customized site for multiple users and brands that allows you to order variable print, corporate stationery and promotional products, City Paper Company can support you with an easy-to-use platform that satisfies your specific needs.
