“Impact marketing” is the focus of Lezlie Ann Kinney’s business, BRIGHT IDEAS Promotional Products Galore!. She helps clients select terrific promotional products (custom imprinted items such as pens, mugs, tee shirts and awards), and has the bright ideas to make them really work for them.
Lezlie Ann started Bright Ideas in 1989, and has shepherded the company’s growth from the kitchen table in her home, to three busy locations. She was the first to start a retail store-type site in Albuquerque, and was one of the first in the country to do so. The company earned the National Showroom of the Year award three years ago for the creativity of the store design. Bright Ideas also operates an imprinting facility, which was just outfitted with the latest banner and sign making equipment this week.
