Silver (2): Badges & Buttons, Health & Beauty
Finalist: Sports Bottles
SnugZ USA has had some advantages during the pandemic. The supplier, based in West Jordan, Utah, makes and decorates many of its own items, helping it avoid delays associated with bringing in finished goods from overseas. It has a diverse product offering, allowing it to adapt to demand and build up stock in top-selling items. And, perhaps most importantly, it never stops innovating, launching several new drinkware lines, a custom packaging line and a fulfillment service over the past year. Those advantages translated to customer satisfaction, with Supplier Excellence Awards voters selecting SnugZ as the Gold winner in Lanyards and a Silver winner in two categories (Badges & Buttons, Health & Beauty).
What’s New: “We continue to be optimistic for Q4 gifting with our new Boxcar Custom Packaging and Piggyback Fulfillment Services, as well as heading into the new year with Thermos and QNCH drinkware items,” said Brandon Brown, vice president of marketing for SnugZ. “Jumping into these two new categories has been extremely exciting, and we will be continuing to add to and enhance our offering in addition to our core lanyards and personal care products. We also are excited to get out to shows again to interact personally with our customers again. And stay tuned: We have a few pretty big surprises up our sleeve for the new year that we think are game changing.”
