You may remember our blog post from the beginning of 2011 about a new development in our industry - the Quality Certification Alliance or QCA. The QCA is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit accrediting organization for the promotional product industry. It was founded to certify promotional products in the following areas: Quality Assurance, Supply Chain Security, Environmental Stewardship, Product Safety and Social Compliance.
What does that mean to you? It means that when you purchase items that are QCA-certified, you are also purchasing credibility and responsibility for your branded promotional products.
With that in mind, we'd like to present the QCA: Protect Your Brand video (featured above), which explains more about the benefits of purchasing QCA-certified promotional products.
As you browse our site, look for the QCA logo on accredited items. You can expect the number of QCA-certified products to grow over the next year. Stay tuned to our blog for more information on the Quality Certification Alliance as it grows and establishes itself in the promotional products industry.
