When distributor Lori Bostdorff at Red
Promotions in Bellevue, Washington, received a
phone call from one of her largest clients asking
for gifts for a virtual event just a few weeks away,
she knew exactly who to contact. Experience had
taught her that PowerStick was the only supplier
that could pull off the high-quality attendee gifts
needed and get them delivered to recipients’
doorsteps in time.
The event was a three-day virtual conference for
a major corporation’s engineering department
and the client wanted three gifts for each of the
245 attendees. The plan was for attendees to
open one gift together at the start of each day to
promote camaraderie. Timing was the biggest
challenge on this order as Bostdorff’s client made
the request in January and the gifts had to be
delivered to recipients no later than February 4.
Bostdorff got right to work. She contacted
PowerStick’s Cassidy Shaw and they selected
three pre-set kits each packaged in a medium,
white SILKEN box with a custom sleeve
indicating Day 1, Day 2 or Day 3. A card from the
department’s directors accompanied the mailing
thanking recipients for taking part of the event.
Inside the boxes were products to ensure a
successful virtual conference experience and
all products were decorated with the team’s
full-color logo. Day One was a TuneUp Kit with a
PowerPad wireless charger and Luna Bluetooth®
speaker. Day Two was a Boost Box including a
Wave wifi extender, FoldStand adjustable phone
stand and CableCatch desktop cable organizer.
Day Three’s box contained a Spot Pro Kit with
Spot Pro Bluetooth two-way finder, Ultra Buds
wireless earbuds and Aura light ring.
The packages were drop-shipped to recipients’
homes on January 31 using three-day ground
service to ensure delivery by the deadline.
“I chose PowerStick and these kits because of
the quick-turn time,” says Bostdorff, who says she
uses PowerStick frequently. “It was a last-minute
request from the client and we put all of this
together in less than three days.”
Bostdorff was delighted to learn that her client
loved all of the gifts, especially the quality of the
products. “It made my client look like a super
star,” she says. “Cassidy knocked it out of the park
and Production totally nailed it. Everything was
received right on time.”

She was so grateful that she later sent pizza to the PowerStick team at its Ottawa, Ontario, headquarters in appreciation for their flawless execution of this crucial and complex order.
Asked why she chose PowerStick for this particular order, Bostdorff says, “You guys are the only ones who can turn orders like this in record time and Cassidy is just a wizard. All of your products are quality and you were able to make it happen. It was pretty impressive!”
