Home > About Us > Our History
Merkur & Sister has been providing top-quality, decorated promotional products for over thirty years. Back in 1970, from his parents' basement, Lorne Merkur first screen printed T-Shirts for his Jr. High School Baseball team. What began with a manual press and a few simple inks has evolved over the years to incorporate digital printing, international association membership, automatic multi-head embroidery, e-commerce and the internet.
Basement production did not last long. We are located in midtown Toronto, our head office and showroom are only minutes away from our primary screen printing and embroidery facility and warehouse-capable of decorating and storing thousands of garments. We are only minutes away from many other GTA production facilities and product distributors-giving us personal control over all orders: regular turnaround or rush.
In the early nineties, Merkur & Sister AdWEAR expanded its' product line to offer even more value with the introduction of PromoSTUFF - thousands of non-wearable, logoable "hard goods". At this point, Merkur & Sister AdWEAR + PromoSTUFF truly became a one-stop-shop, offering the perfect mix: the widest selection of quality custom-decorated products, expert advice, full-time business skills, top-notch customer service and administration systems, competitive pricing, dependable on-time turnaround and delivery, and unbeatable enthusiasm and experience.
Through it all, Merkur & Sister has maintained it's focus on customer service and client
satisfaction to become a successful business that has exceeded the needs of hundreds of
customers throughout Southern Ontario, across Canada and into the United States.
