Qualifications for Becoming a SAGE Supplier

  • Must supply to promotional product distributors.
  • Physical presence within the U.S. or its possessions, Canada or Mexico, which might include, but not limited to: a warehouse or a sales, manufacturing or distribution facility (virtual addresses and mail houses do not qualify).
  • Residences are subject to additional verification.
  • Sell decorated or imprinted products (exceptions include blank apparel companies or premium/incentive companies).
  • Provide industry coded pricing (exceptions include service providers, blank apparel companies, or premium/incentive companies).
  • Website should contain promotional product information. If the entire website is not geared towards promotional products, there should be a section or tab with this information.

How to Get Started

  1. Send us your PPAI, UPIC, or PPPC number. If you don’t have a PPAI, UPIC, or PPPC number, you must submit two invoices or purchase orders from verified promotional product distributors over $100 and dated within the last 12 months. Sample orders do not qualify. Invoices/POs must include the same company name, address and phone number as what is listed in SAGE. Invoices/POs should be from two different companies -- different locations or different store numbers with different account numbers wouldn’t qualify as two invoices/POs.
  1. Submit a product sheet showing industry-coded pricing, product number with image, decoration method, setup charge, and imprint area. See an example here.
  1. Send us your website containing promotional product information, or a promotional product section. If your website does not contain promotional product information, you will need to add it or create a separate website. Supplier must have an end buyer safe website or a separate area letting distributors know they can contact you for wholesale pricing. Distributors will be notified if website is not end user safe.

What Happens Next
