Advantage Emblem Takes Customer Service Seriously

“We’re All About You” is not just a slogan for Advantage Emblem & Screen Printing; it’s a philosophy, tightly woven into everything the company does. Nobody knows this better than Grandma's Marathon, for which Advantage Emblem is the official merchandiser and screen printer.

“In my 36 years as director of Grandma's Marathon, I have never experienced the caliber of customer service that Nathan and his team provide,” says Scott Keenan, executive director of Grandma's Marathon.

Advantage Emblem joined the Grandma's Marathon sponsorship team in 2002. Each year the company produces over 17,000 finisher shirts for the marathon, half marathon and 5K, 6,000 volunteer T-shirts, 4,000 promotional shirts that will be worn by local hotel employees, and thousands of lapel pins given to volunteers. “The crew at Advantage Emblem goes above and beyond the call of duty to make sure every item they produce for us is of the highest quality. It’s clear that their top priority is making sure their customers are 100% satisfied,” adds Keenan.

“We strive to consistently reinvest in our company by purchasing state of the art equipment and providing ongoing training for our staff. Doing this drives costs down and allows us to pass on savings to our customers,” says Nathan Bentley, owner of Advantage Emblem. Bentley adds that even in these hard economic times, Advantage Emblem continues to be a strong, vibrant company that is fully staffed and ready to take on any project that is handed to them no matter how big or small it is.

For the past four years, Advantage Emblem has been the official and exclusive retailer of Grandma’s Marathon Merchandise. According to Bentley, the response from runners and race fans has been tremendous. “Being the official merchandiser has been a great experience for us. We are looking forward to unveiling our 2012 line that features fresh new designs and styles that reflect the latest trends in clothing for men and women. There will be something for everybody!” says Bentley.
