Studio Eleven reaches milestone in 2017


For the Sidney Daily News



FORT LORAMIE — Studio Eleven Promotional Products achieved a major milestone in 2017, celebrating 25 years in business. The company began operations in 1992 as a screen printer providing custom screen printed apparel to area organizations and businesses. Studio Eleven has since evolved and grown into one of the region’s leading suppliers of custom branded promotional products, screen printed, and embroidered apparel. The company is located in the Fort Loramie Industrial Park.

Company officials have offered the following report for 2017 and also a report on its industrial signage division, the Vivid Manufacturing Group.

Both sales and profitability for 2017 were up as a result of companywide initiatives to improve new customer acquisition efforts and focus on cost control. The economy continued to be strong in the manufacturing markets within our customer base. Our products are discretionary in nature, so when the economy is down, the market tightens and becomes much more competitive. Due to investments in capital equipment over the years, we were positioned well in 2017 to manufacture the majority of our printed and embroidered orders in our facility which helped us to be much more competitive and profitable. Our solid reputation for quality products, reliable service, unique ideas, competitive prices, and on-time delivery continued to help us grow. Our diverse customer base has been very helpful in maintaining strong, consistent growth over the years. We continued to expand our marketing efforts to corporate clients and manufacturing firms, event organizers, and colleges. Another pivotal growth area has been the expansion of accounts with nationally recognized brands requiring promotional products for branding purposes. We have extensive experience in promoting our customer’s branding initiatives through the use of imprinted promotional products and wearables. In many ways, we function as an extension of our customer’s marketing team.

The Vivid Manufacturing Group, (a division and registered trademark of Studio Eleven, Inc.), continued to experience strong growth in 2017. Vivid is a custom designer and manufacturer of engineered graphics. Product lines include Product Identification (nameplates for equipment manufacturers), Architectural Signage, and Corporate Recognition Awards and Plaques.
