Seven PPAI staff members from across the Association recently visited the downtown Dallas headquarters of business services member OrderMyGear (PPAI 704581, A1) to learn more about the company’s distinctive business model, meet team members and tour their offices housed in a remodeled 1908 building that was once Dallas’s first Cadillac dealer.

The ecommerce company was founded in 2008 around an online platform that ultimately makes it easy and efficient for small groups to order decorated team apparel, from branded tees for runs to benefit a cause, sweatshirts for school football players, and caps promoting a school’s science club. It entered the promotional products industry in 2017 and now employs nearly 100 people. Read more about OrderMyGear’s model and success story in PPB’s October issue.
