Today I met with SoBe Promos, located at 82 NE 29th st in Wynwood, right next to Crossfit. Sobe is a company that prides themselves on customer service and creativity, to give you the best promotional products in South Florida.
Sobe buys it’s products through promotional suppliers, and then sells them to the end users. They use the relationships they have made over the years to get better pricing and they are able to source products from over seas directly from their factory and offices in China. They previously were Bullet Line promotional, however the former owners who had the business for over 30 years, sold it in 2006. At the time, Bullet Line was the 12th biggest promotional supplier in the world. With the contacts from Bullet Line, they were able to continue their success with what is today Sobe Promos.

Sobe Promotions has worked with many impressive companies such as google, where they made white chocolate covered Oreos with the Google logo on them. (They were delicious!) They have also worked with the business school at University of Miami as well as their athletics program. They have been working on products for the SLS Hotel on South Beach, they have done a USB of a sneaker designed for Del Toro Shoes, and right now they are currently working on something with Avici! They even helped design products for Ultra Music Festival! Basically, if you can fit a logo on it, they can make it happen!

Previously located on Lincon Rd. in Miami beach, they feel their presence in Wynwood is important, upon asking “Why Wynwood?” They responded without hesitation.
“Well this is where everything is happening now! There is a lot of creative minds here, I feel like this is the forefront of the Miami creative scene, and a lot of aspiring entrepreneurs, young people with creative minds; are all starting different business here.”

Their service and ability to source products directly from other countries at an unbeatable price, their creativity, and with all of their experience, they are able find the products for you that are perfect for your target market. They also keep up with trends, they don’t just give you a catalog. Sobe Promos wants to participate in the creative process with the customer.
