In 1990, Robert Albert started Impressive Imprints out of his house at the age of 19. His original mission of providing a quality product with personal professional service, which is still driving the company today. In 1996 he expanded, and moved into the Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda. As business continued to increase, he brought the embroidery business "In-House" with the purchase of a 4 head embroidery machine. This expansion was over $80,000 and lead to additional machines in 2002 and beyond.
In 2004 the company grew to 8 employees, and in order to handle the growth, a new 6500 facility was built. This half million-dollar investment greatly improved their ability to expand and handle large national accounts. By 2010 the company has over 20 employees. In 2015, the company reached over 2.5 million in sales and has served thousands of companies.
In 2017 we strategically aligned our company with HALO (an industry leading Promotional Supplier with over 100 millions in sales) to handle our order processing and billing. The relationship also brings stronger relationships with our vendors, which allows us to offer more competitive pricing. In addition, we have the expertise and experience of the HALO team, to bring in on large projects and our customers special needs.
Today, the company is investing in it’s web technology that will compete with the large companies, but give you the advantage and personal touch of a small business. The site will focus on using technology to delivery web base solutions to make your internal operations more efficient and save you time and money.
In the future, Impressive Imprints will continue to be a leader in their industry, combining technology and new techniques, while providing you with the best possible service.
