About

Poppy Promos is a true labor of love. 

After over 14 years in this industry, I still genuinely enjoy what I do, and Boy Howdy does that feel good!

It’s all pretty simple:  We work with local mom & pop businesses to Fortune 500 companies – many of whom I’ve worked with since 2005.

I can produce or source just about anything you might want customized:  screen printing, over 800,000 promotional items, and embroidery work.  Great ideas and excellent communications and service are all part of what you can expect when you work with me. I guarantee your satisfaction with your order. Period.

Community is a priority:  I first and foremost collaborate with Bay Area and California-based vendors.   This not only supports our local economies, it also saves on shipping costs and reduces the overall ecological footprint of an order.  Dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have 3x the impact on our community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally we simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement, and promote community development.  And that just seems like the right thing to do.

I look forward to partnering with you!

Sincerely,

Mimi Thomas

PS   In case you were wondering, we’re named after the state flower of California – yes, the Eschscholzia Californica – or the California Poppy.

 From “Education through Recreation” by Lawrence Pearsall Jacks (1932):

“A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play; his labor and his leisure; his mind and his body; his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. To himself, he always appears to be doing both.”
