Magellan Promotions is a rapidly growing promotional advertising specialty company that is located just outside of Milwaukee in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin. We opened our doors in 2005 with the goal of being a world class resource for schools, companies, and other organizations with which we work. We have a collaborative environment (with an open concept office space), working together towards our common goals. Our company has more than doubled in size since 2011, and we are really excited about our future.
We specialize in helping market colleges, companies, and non-profits through three-dimensional custom imprinted goods. Examples of the products we provide include pens, t-shirts, lanyards and flash drives. However, we are so much more than a provider of products. We position ourselves as an idea company by helping on the creative side through finding the right items to engage, create awareness, reward and /or incentivize for each partner’s need.
Promotional products is a $20 billion dollar industry and our sales rank in the top 5% of all the distributors! Magellan Promotions is a member of PPAI (Promotional Product Association International), an industry association that promotes and supports the growth of the industry.
In March of 2015 Magellan Promotions diversified the business and purchased Transfer Times (www.transfertimes.com). Transfer Times advertises four year colleges to transfer students at community colleges and tech schools. Currently Transfer Times is focused in nine Midwestern states.
Magellan Promotions is a company that prides itself on the culture that we have created. We have a professional atmosphere but still take time to have fun. At Magellan Promotions we enjoy what we do and work really hard to provide the best service to our clients.
