Dale Rogers Training Center, Inc. (DRTC) recently opened its doors for state agencies and businesses around the metro to learn more about branding items through Prism Place, a division of DRTC, which provides training and jobs for people with disabilities.
Some of the nation’s top promotional items suppliers setup various displays at the nonprofit’s main campus for the Dale Rogers Training Center Round-Up, showing attendees the newest items. Many left with new ideas to help advance their agency’s/company’s brand.
Prism Place places orders through suppliers, who then ship the items to DRTC. The “Swag Team,” comprised of people with disabilities, performs a rigorous quality check on every item, which is not the industry norm; typically, promotional items are “drop shipped” to the customer where errors with the order may be discovered. DRTC’s Swag Team catches these issues before the customer receives the order and works to fix any errors that may arise.
Kathy, Shon and Waneta, members of the Swag Team, explained to attendees why they would reject various items, from incomplete logo, to non-functioning zippers, to missing components and more.
Visitors also toured parts of the nonprofit agency, learning more about awards and trophies, also through Prism Place, as well as picture framing division Wyman Frame, and Robin’s Corner Gift Shop, featuring items packaged/assembled by people with disabilities.
Dale Rogers Training Center, and its divisions, are open Monday-Friday, from 8:00am-5:00pm. To schedule a tour, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
