Ecommerce Solutions

Large companies have lots of moving parts — with that comes a huge need for promotional and branded products. If you’re doing big business, you’ll have salespeople who need incentives; clients who need loyalty rewards, and potential customers who want promotional items. Your product and printing needs are plentiful and important.

If you’re looking for a streamlined way for your sales force and staff to order promotional products, City Paper has you covered. We’ll create an ecommerce site featuring only your branded promo products; your staff can order from the site, and City Paper handles everything from stocking the online store to the printing and fulfillment of products.

You want consistent branding every time. You don’t want to quote each project separately, reinventing the wheel for every department and every new initiative. You want a point person who’ll make sure everything is running smoothly and support when you have questions — if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll love City Paper.

A base site can be as little as $1,500 for a one time set up fee, plus $150/monthly hosting charge.
