“Skyward Promotions will “move mountains” to get you (the customer) a product to fill the needs of your organization or event. I know when I call or email Skyward that I will be treated like a friend, not just a person calling in. When the need arises for a “rush job” I can count on Tim and his crew to help me out and find the item that will fit the bill and get me out of a jam.”

Sue Cadie, Alpine Bank

“Tim and the rest of the Skyward team are always responsive to our needs, ensuring that we receive our orders on time. They are quick to point out any potential issues and offer suggestions to solve the problem to make sure we get what we need.”

Caren Adami, Fehr Graham

“Skyward is one of the very few vendors I know will bend over backwards to make sure I have exactly what I have when I need it.”

Dave Szyp, Ingersoll Cutting Tools

“I like the personal attention you provide. You have NEVER let me down with any item, and you are always prompt, courteous, and do whatever’s in your power to get things done! I am highly satisfied with Skyward Promotions.”

Karen Weis, Rockford Park District

“I can’t tell you how many times Tim has come through for our organization. Just last week he made a decision that will allow me to have my items in time for my event date. He is creative, imaginative, and has taken many of our requests a step above what we were even thinking about.
I count on Tim for creativity and to enhance our ideas into something great. He has a knack for listening to what you are thinking about doing and turning it from good to spectacular. Thanks to Tim and Sandy and all of the wonderful people who work for you who continuously strive for excellence and bend over backwards for your high maintenance clients such as myself. I truly enjoy working with your company and know that you will turn my thoughts into reality.”

Cindy Thompson, Rockford Park District

“Thanks for doing another great job with the premium promo items for another one of my events. You continue to deliver on time within tight timeframes, produce great-looking items, and provide the usual excellent customer service to which I have grown accustomed. The shirt design and color selection were big hits with the participants as well as our staff. Thanks again!”

Reid Tennant, Development Associate-Special Events & Marketing

“One of my favorites was this: I personally like pens to give [and get] as premiums because it is one thing people do keep and use. But I wanted a pen that was different enough to catch folks attention and inexpensive enough to fit my budget. I also wanted the pen to reflect the Mission’s color theme – black & yellow. Skyward found the perfect item: a stick pen that was heat sensitive. At room temperature the barrel is orange but when you hold it, the barrel turns yellow! The graphics simply said, “Rockford Rescue Mission – Changing Lives One Life at a Time”. Skyward Promotions has taken many of my concepts and turned them into reality. From pens, bookmarks, paperweights and t-shirts, Tim has always come through with quality products that fit my budget. His creative and innovative ideas have helped us promote our brand very successfully.”

Randa Noble, Executive Director

“In 2003, non-stop jet air service returned to this region and we threw a party! Tim had glow-in-the-dark t-shirts made for us that I still see people wearing today. They said Fly RFD – It’s a No Brainer. The theme for our party was one that Tim came up which was “you are the key to our success”. So, at the event each attendee, which was over 2,000 people to our amazement, received a key to open a box. In the box were tickets to win either the t-shirt, a key chain, or a round trip ticket on TransMeridian Airlines. The event, slogan, Skyward Promotions and community involvement was awesome! Thanks Tim and the Skyward team!”

Kathy J. Bruggeman, Executive Assistant

“My favorite experience with Skyward Promotions goes back 10+ years and 3 jobs and 2 kids ago – when I worked at CLARCOR, Inc. we would take bus trips to the promotions convention in the Chicago Suburbs. The Disney movies and fun times in the bus on the way there and back, not to mention ALL THE IDEAS and fun stuff we got while we were there – better than any shopping trip! Fast forward 10+ years and 3 jobs later and I STILL count on Skyward Promotions to help me out with new ways to promote our business!”

Ambyr Knight, Marketing Specialist

“Tim and the whole Skyward Promotions Team are one of my favorite vendors to work with! They are always responsive to my seemingly never ending string of requests, including rush orders, stop orders, and exploratory inquiries. Everything begins with a story, and the great experiences I’ve had could fill a novel”

Caren Adami, Marketing Director

“Tim, I can’t express enough how much I appreciate all you do for me. You help take the stress out of my job! I know when I place an order with you it will be handled in a professional, accurate and timely manner. I never have to worry because I know you will come through. The enthusiasm you have for your job is contagious. Thanks for always making me look good!”

Joyce Neville, CM, Membership & Program Systems Administrator

“Maureen Solverson moves the sun and the moon for us! She makes us look like stars and is truly a Skyward Promotions person through and through.”

Diana Johnson, College Administrator

“Tim makes me look successful. Delivery is always quick and on-time and difficulties are rare. Skyward is always coming up with new ideas for me!”

Bob Bailey, Director of Medical Marketing

“When you want the best products and service, there’s only one – Skyward!”

Brian Thomas, Photographer

“Tim, thanks again for going out of your way to deliver the key chains. The reason we keep ordering from you is because you’re a class act! And you have fun toys!”

Pete McMurray, Top Rated Radio Personality

“Not only do I receive exciting and innovative ideas from Tim, he really delivers! On more than several occasions, we’ve given short notice and he comes through! The purchasing department went with another vendor and it turned out they couldn’t deliver on time (in fact, they even lost our order!) and Tim was able to get the product for us within our time constraints! We get the best service, competitive prices and great ideas at Skyward Promotions!”

Karen Weis, Park District Marketing Director

“Skyward provides creative solutions to our promotional needs. They also provide quick turn-around and friendly, professional service.”

Kim Larson, Bank Senior Vice President

“Skyward can reduce the length of time and energy required to find just the right promotional item. The task of selecting marketing items is just a small part of my day-to-day responsibilities, but it can be a BIG pain. Lucky for me there’s an entire computer “inventory” so Tim can quickly narrow down my choices to only those items that meet my specific criteria, whatever it might be. As a result, the process is considerably less time consuming, and a whole lot less painful. Thanks for making my life a little easier.”

Karen Howlett, Manager of Corporate Communications

“Tim Larson did a fantastic job of helping organize the marketing and promotional aspects of the Kinnikinnick School referendum. His creative, original ideas really helped energize our efforts. I also use Tim for my business promotions where I continue to rely on him for his creative input. I would recommend him to anyone!”

Tim Taylor, Co-chair – Roscoe Referendum Committee President – Manufacturing Group

“Tim provides individual, customized, personal service. We use Skyward for all giveaways and they continue to meet our price points! It’s his ideas that make the products better… he’s a donor and he knows our business. We’ve been partners for over 18 years!”

Heidi Ognibene, Director of Community Resources Blood Center

“Our connection to Skyward is through sales rep Maureen Solverson. She has been great to work with! She brings us great ideas and is so helpful. Her honest, “bend-over -backwards to help” approach has kept us with Skyward for all of our promotional needs. Every year the graphics team at Skyward has been involved with designing our Hike for Life T-shirt original logo – they do an awesome job!”

Susan Skoglund – Executive Director

“I would like to personally thank you and your staff for coming through on all the rush orders we had you process for the Board of Directors meeting. Everything turned out great. It’s nice to know we can count on you and your staff in a time of need. I placed orders with you and then did not have to worry if the products would be delivered on time. I knew they would!”

Cyndi Lee – Purchasing
