Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it, hear what our clients have to say…


Lynn and 1st Straw Marketing & Promotions just finished the largest marketing piece I have taken on yet in my career both in number of units as well as content. The job was a challenge for both of us but Lynn and team met the challenges head on- never showed me or my staff the “hard part” of the project as she handled all of the issues on her own so that the process appeared smooth to me. She and her staff were well organized and creative throughout the project. Very professional and expert in every step of the process and resourceful as well which was key to the completion on budget and on time. The final product has been exceptionally well received with lots of kudos from the public. I expect there to be good residual business as well as strong consumer relations as a direct result of this project.

Thank you for your great service and apparel you provided the Philadelphia Zoo over the past seven years.  You and your team routinely meet and exceed our expectations.  We greatly appreciate all of 1st Straw’s generous donations over the last two years.  Because of the support from partners like you, the Philadelphia Zoo is able to remain one of the premiere attractions.  We highly recommend 1st Straw Marketing & Promotions.

You get a lot of insight into a person when they are put in a position of being out of their comfort zone…Lynn is very smart, focused, able to adapt to new information/circumstances, and able to listen and hear what others are communicating. She is very aware of what clients need and is very customer-service oriented. Two thumbs up!

I recommend them without qualification for any promotional program and marketing assignment. In addition to serving the needs of my business, Emergency Preparedness Partnerships, I have also worked with the 1st Straw staff for two non-profit groups that I am associated with – New Jersey Emergency Preparedness Association (NJEPA) & the National Association of Women Business Owners – South Jersey Chapter (NAWBO-SJ).

Lynn’s creativity and follow through with the marketing premiums and materials she has provided us has been a huge help to American Executive Centers for over 10 years. She is a true professional – an expert in her field with a customer service attitude that doesn’t quit. Thanks, Lynn!

Lynn is a great source for marketing and promotional material. She listens to the requirements, makes great recommendations and provides a great price. Her customer service is beyond expectations. She is highly motivated and is a true professional.
Jack Palmer, President, Jersey Datacomm and Cable
We have asked her to research and create personalized high-end corporate gifts, design annual holiday gift towers, and regularly order various logoed business items (i.e., shirts, golf balls, stationary, etc.). When I have been at a loss as to what would fit in with a theme that was chosen, Lynn has always been able to come up with various ideas for me to choose from. Additionally, even when our requests were rush orders, Lynn has always come through for us. Her work is consistently professional, high quality and always within our designated time frames and budget – no matter how strict.
Susan Ferlicchi, Marketing Manager, Matrix Development Group
Lynn provided promotional material for Harbor Technologies during my services with them. Her work was always perfection, and she provided me timely and valuable input on all of the requests I brought to her. Lynn has integrity and an exceptional knowledge about how to market your company’s value as well as ‘the personal touch’ in all that she does.
