About Adventures in Advertising

Dan Carlson started Adventures in Advertising in 1982 in Seattle. The company acted as an independent distributor of logo merchandise, but soon moved into the design and consulting side of the promotional products business. Adventures in Advertising franchisees work with organizations and corporations, helping them put together marketing programs involving promotional items such as T-shirts, mouse pads and pens bearing their logos.

Franchisees can run the business out of their homes, in an office or as an add-on to another business.
