The company was founded in 1991 by M.D. Alex Phillips a few months after graduating from Bowland College, Lancaster University. Starting from scratch in a shared house in a damp Lancaster cellar with some second hand equipment, no staff and not even a computer. It's original name was Sprint Star Garment Printing and concentrated on supplying T-shirts and sweatshirts to students and local businesses.
In 1994 the company moved to it's current premises and became Alex Phillips Printing Services, later shortened to A.P.P.S. with it's locally iconic Doug the Bug logo. It soon became apparent that people wanted more than just T-shirts and they gradually diversified into all the products you see here today. The motto became 'If it Moves - Print it!'
A milestone came in 2013 won a coveted place on the North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium framework agreement and has since been busy supplying promotional goods and clothing to universities and colleges around the country.
Finally in 2019, to coincide with the new Promart website and order mangement system, they rebranded to Promotional Gods. It's still a small, friendly, independent company who's customers just keep coming back for more. They may not quite be immortal and they are not always that holy but after 30 years they must be doing something pretty divine!
