Custom Sourcing

As a result of our extensive factory and agent relationships over seas, K2 Creative specializes in sourcing custom products not featured in standard promotional products catalogs and in working on OEM programs based on the specs you provide. Additionally we are happy to provide overseas pricing on larger than catalog quotations on any item in our standard catalog of products providing that your lead times are flexible enough to allow for a longer production time.   Standard overseas production times are approximately 9 weeks for vessel shipments and 5-6 weeks for air shipments. Further, almost any item in our standard catalog can be customized in color or with special imprint options if done overseas.  NOTE: Rush production may be available.  Please inquire.


We handle all of the freight forwarding, customs brokerage and logistics.

Requirements for overseas programs:

  • Please email a color photo or link of the product that you want us to source.

  • Please be specific about the color of the product that you are looking for if a custom color is desired.

  • Please indicate the quantity that you are looking for. Minimum quantity guidelines are as follows:

    • Hats - 500 units

    • Writing Instruments - 10,000 units

    • Bags & Blankets - 1,000 units

    • Umbrellas - 1,000 units

    • Stress Balls - 5,000 units

    • Key Tags/Amenities/Miscellaneous Items - 10,000 units

    • Stainless - 2,500 units

    • Ceramics - 2,500 units

    • Electronics - 1,000 units

  • Please indicate the delivery schedule you require. This will enable us to determine whether overseas sourcing is an option and whether to figure our pricing based on ocean or air freight (where feasible)

  • Please let us know where the product is shipping to. We will quote fob your final destination.

  • Please be specific about the imprint - number of colors, process (e.g. silkscreen, embroidery) and location(s).

  • Please let us know if special packaging is required.

Upon receipt of order and artwork we will immediately request a sample for approval from our overseas supplier. 


On products in our catalog, we can in most cases provide overseas price quotes same day. On existing products, not in our catalog where we have been given a sample or clear email photo as well as the above required specifics we can normally quote within 2-3 business days.
