ePromos has excellent connections with manufacturers overseas, so we can make some of our already budget-friendly products even more affordable. Our overseas manufacturers make the same high-quality, functional products you’ve come to expect from ePromos.

Customize Your Merchandise at Every Step

Besides saving money, one of the major benefits of sourcing your promotional product manufacturing overseas is the customization options. While we always work to make all your special requests come true, overseas sourcing takes it a step further. Because your products are being made from scratch, you can customize nearly every aspect of them to fit your brand’s style and your personal preferences.

Here are a few of the customization options available with overseas sourcing. Be sure to speak with one of our sales representatives to learn more!

Our Customization Options

If you explore our website, you’ll notice that every product has a selection of available colors. While some of our products have upwards of 60 color options, others may only have one. When you choose overseas sourcing, you get to decide on any color you want.

We suggest using the Pantone® Matching System (PMS) to decide on colors so they can be perfectly recreated every time. CMYK or RGB coloring is also available, but the final shade may not be the exact one you’re looking for. PMS colors use a specific formula of inks to create each hue, providing the most consistency across platforms and applications. The right choice for you will depend on your preferences.


When it comes to decorating your new product with your brand’s logo and artwork, our already wide variety of printing options expands even more for overseas merchandise. You could choose to have your logo printed or woven into the fabric of your hats, apparel, and bags before they’re even assembled, or you could create a custom label to be sewn into the fabric.

Or, choose from our most popular decoration options for any product you customize or create:

  • Screen printing: This method involves depositing ink onto the product. It’s a great all-around choice for putting vivid colors and designs onto apparel, pens, drinkware, and accessories.
  • Heat transfer: This method uses heat and pressure to move your design from transfer paper to your apparel, mugs, and other heat-resistant promotional products.
  • Laser engraving: For products with hard surfaces, your logo can be etched into the surface using laser precision. This process adds a clean, distinguished appearance to your logo and, by extension, your brand.
  • Embroidery: Add a special touch to your hats, bags, apparel, and other canvas products by stitching your logo into them with a needle and thread.


If you have an idea for a product that doesn’t yet exist, our overseas manufacturers can bring it to life. When you choose to create a new product through our overseas distributors, we’ll manage the entire process — from conception to development, production samples, proofs, and final runs.

We’ve helped create new products in practically every promotional category, including apparel, bags, ceramics, and toys. Whether you’re looking to make a T-shirt with a particular cut for a team or a figurine of your company mascot to hand out at your annual picnic, we’ll work to make it a reality.

To start this process, we’ll review any initial designs, sketches or photographs you have. If you’re not at that stage, we’ll talk with you until we understand your vision and come up with something together. Then, our talented product design team will create digital renditions of your plans so you can see what your final product should look like.

Once you approve the design, we’ll send it to the manufacturer so they can create a prototype. You can evaluate the product and make sure it meets your expectations. If you’re happy with it, we’ll complete a production sample before the final run to make sure the quality is just right.
