Las Vegas, NV [April 1, 2021] — A merger of two Deaf-owned businesses, Promotional Works and Route 66 Promotions, has led to the establishment of Route 1 Promotions. With an impressive array of marketing and advertising offerings, Route 1 Promotions is a convenient, one-stop creative solution marketing and advertising company. Services include branding, product development, web design, video production, graphic design, digital advertising, and public relations. Route 1 Promotions also provides manufacturing and distribution of promotional and corporate giveaways, trade-show booths, banners, table covers, apparel, collateral, and supplies.
On Route 1’s new website, people can do several things, including designing their own logos and products, choosing from thousands of promotional items, create their own company stores with branded products, and even establish a fundraising page with branded products. Another enhancement is featuring work by community artists. “For a combined 30+ years in this industry, I’m excited that Route 1 now has new services and products, and is featuring diverse talent through special collections,” co-owner Thomas Otto-Bruc said. “It’s important to me that we support our communities and are inclusive. This is one of the best ways to giveback to the community that has long supported our work.”
Todd Bader established Promotional Works in 1993, while Thomas Otto-Bruc established Route 66Promotions in 2012. In recent years, they realized that their combined forces would bring out the best in each company and decided to rebrand their companies as one. Bader said, “Customer service is so important, because we want each and every customer to be satisfied. So, this has been a priority for us and I think our new business model will achieve greater customer satisfaction and loyalty.”
Route 1 provides customer service in English and American Sign language (ASL). Another innovative feature of the new, user-friendly website (www.route1.promo) is the“ASL Now button.” By clicking on that button, people will be immediately connected via videophone to a Route 1 expert fluent in ASL who can then answer questions. “We want to become the premier place for individuals, organizations, and companies in the community to maximize their marketing and promotional success,” Bader said. “We have the expertise, customer service, high-quality standards, and knowledge of the multilingual and diversified community.” For more, visit www.route1.promo.
