Blue Water Promotions began operations in 2001 as the need for a fresh, professional approach to promotional products in the Tampa Bay area was obviously needed. John Houser as mastermind and creator of Blue Water Promotions, head strong and bold, saw the need and was ready to fill the need.

On one humid, Florida evening Blue Water Promotions began to take shape and come to life.  While having dinner our image, culture, name, and more came barreling through the heavy, thick evening air.  At the end of the dinner Blue Water Promotions was born.

Since 2001 Blue Water Promotions has delivered expertly decorated promotional products and corporate apparel by the nearly uncountable scores of thousands.  During these years we have "been there, done that" in developing the right mix of materials, suppliers, methods, and expertise enabling us to serve our client family as they deserve.

As the promotional products industry undergoes the ebb and flow of changes Blue Water Promotions strives to stay current with safety guidelines and new techniques to allow our clients the peace of mind that what they purchase through Blue Water Promotions is compliant, responsible, current and meet specific needs of our valued clients. We are always striving and learning.

Our 15 needle machines, capable of sewing 1,000 stitches per minute, enable Blue Water Promotions to meet the tightest of deadlines with superior quality.
