We Had a Year to Celebrate in 2021
2021 presented challenges, but we chose to lead with kindness, creativity and resilience that served our clients, employees and community.
To our clients, we want to say thank you! We are so blessed and grateful for your support, patience and loyalty. We love working with you and helping promote your businesses.
There were obstacles in 2021, like supply chain issues involving inventory, stock and delivery of items. Even with these challenges, our employees rolled up their sleeves and made last year our best sales year ever! Supply chain issues will likely continue for the foreseeable future and there will continue to be increases due to inflation impacting the industry. We are so proud of our amazing team and vendor partners that helped fulfill our clients’ orders — including kitting promotional items.
Artina Promotional Products is a family business with a strong family culture, and our foundation is an extension of our core values of caring for others and doing the right thing. Created in 2019, the Choose Kind Foundation honors the inspiring legacy of our family’s matriarch, Sue Bouzounis. The foundation’s mission is to spread hope, strength and joy. In 2021, Artina Promotional Products donated $25,000 to the Choose Kind Foundation.
Reflecting on 2021
As we continue to ring in the new year, we want to take a moment to look back at some of our company’s highlights from 2021.
It Was All Smiles at the Playhouse Project
Our Choose Kind Foundation was a sponsor for the Habitat for Humanity-MidOhio Playhouse Project at Huntington Park in Columbus, Ohio in May 2021. We built and decorated a playhouse for two wonderful kids, George (7-years-old) and Lucy (6-years-old). It was a fun day!
Today’s Kids Are Choosing Kindness
10-year-old Elise of Dublin, Ohio ran a lemonade stand this past summer in her neighborhood with her friend, Lillian. In addition to serving sweet lemonade, they also sold some of our Choose Kind Foundation products. They donated their $875 earnings to our Choose Kind Foundation!
30 Years of Service Milestone
On June 7, 2021, we celebrated Margot Engle’s 30th year working at Artina! In 1991 she joined our Support Department doing accounting and currently serves many of our valued clients as a Senior Account Executive. She is the second-longest serving employee behind founder Chris Bouzounis. Margot’s commitment to our company and clients throughout the past three decades has been amazing and inspiring.
Making Someone’s Day
Is in Our DNA
For the second consecutive year, our Choose Kind Foundation was a sponsor for the Make-A-Day food truck and community event. This event helped the homeless and provided food, haircuts, COVID vaccines, health assessments and legal assistance. Matina Zenios and Michael Zenios volunteered at the event this past September, which also included volunteers from our clients Southeast Healthcare and Primary One Health.
Let the Artina team connect, amaze, and inspire you! We present our Signature Collection, carefully selected promotional items that we refresh daily with the newest, hottest and trendiest products.
