Hello Columbia University!

You’ve been directed to this page because you need a cool giveaway for your upcoming project or event.

This page will help you start a custom product project with Fairware, an authorized supplier for Columbia University’s promo supplies. Fairware is North America’s leading supplier of ethically sourced and sustainable promotional merchandise and corporate gifts. They have suppliers and decorators across North America, and will find you products that reduce your environmental impact where possible. Fairware believes promotional merchandise should inspire the recipient to connect to our brand and our values. They act as brand guardians to help tell our story through cool promotional product programs.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Complete the form below to get a quote. The more detail you provide the better job Fairware can do sourcing on your behalf.
  2. Fairware will weed through the 1000’s of products available and provide a proposal with a number of options that fit your needs.
  3. You look at the proposal and select an option.
  4. Fairware orders the product and provides a proof of the item for sign off by you.
  5. The product is delivered within the timeframe and you have a great event.

A few pro-tips to keep in mind:

  • The standard lead time is 3-4 weeks depending on the merchandise (add 3-5 days shipping). Rush orders may be possible if necessary.
  • Product pricing depends on three things:
    1. quantity ordered (more product = lower costs)
    2. number of colours in the logo (more colours = more cost)
    3. number of locations (more locations = more cost)
  • Consider collaborating with other departments or leverage multiple campaigns or events to purchase higher quantities of one item (this also helps get the costs down). Fairware will help manage your budget so you get what you want at the price you need.
