American Express Shop Small

Case Study

Progressive Promotions was asked by American Express to produce over one million bags for the 2014 Shop Small event. Our client requested that the bags be made of 100% cotton canvas twill, of superior quality and strength, and “Made in America”. We greatly enjoyed rising to the occasion and surpassed our client’s needs. Not only did we find a supplier that met the requirements but we found a supplier that uses US-grown cotton that is then spun into canvas twill, which was finally assembled at a sewing factory in the northeast. The bags were entirely “USA made”. It was a fantastic project that not only pleased our client but also allowed us to contribute to the Shop Small mission of engaging local businesses.
