About Us

Since 1985 GNP Branded Gear has provided associations nationwide with the best values in custom branded gear. GNP’s expertise extends beyond quality promotional products for in-person and virtual events, conventions, conferences, membership & speaker gifts, awards and alike. More recently GNP has introduced a full line of top quality Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including Reusable Cloth Face Covers, Disposable Face Masks, Hand Sanitizers and alike. Domestic and Factory-Direct (overseas) production allow GNP Branded Gear to offer better values in Bags (totes, briefcases, portfolios, coolers), Event & I.D. Supplies (lanyards, badge holders, wallets, banners), Tech Gear (flash drives, chargers, power banks), Drinkware (bottles, mugs, tumblers), Writing Instruments (pens, highlighters, stylus), Advertising Specialties (calendars, sunglasses, earbuds, notebooks, folders, umbrellas), Lapel Pins, Awards (plaques, certificate holders), Apparel (t-shirts, fleece, jackets, polo/golf shirts, ponchos, hats/caps) and more. GNP’s goal is to provide association executives with solutions that are creative, economical and hassle-free.

GNP is a long-standing member of the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and has been trusted by the association to be the official vendor-partner of the attendee bags for both the Springtime Expo and the ASAE Annual Meeting & Exposition. GNP is also a long-standing member of the Fair labor Association and Better Business Bureau (BBB) where they have earned an A+ rating (highest rating). A few words about GNP’s Factory-Direct Advantage – Although this program was originally designed for larger events, the flexibility of our factory-partners has made it possible so that event planners planning events with as few as 500 attendees can take advantage of unlimited customization possibilities and very advantageous pricing. Production time for this program is approximately 90 days however rush service is always available. And while this program is ideal for meeting attendee bags it has also proven to be successful for the production of lanyards, badge wallets, and other event supplies. GNP also carries a full line of eco-friendly options in all product categories. As a matter of fact, GNP Branded Gear was the first promotional products distributor to expand its “green” offerings to include recycled, recyclable, organic, biodegradable and other ecofriendly options across all product categories. GNP’s staff is comprised of a great mix of industry veterans and younger professionals. The list of GNP’s industry veterans includes John Giordano - GNP’s Co-Founder and President, Todd Frankford - VP of Business Development, Jill Hallen - Senior Sales Manager, Lori Vyhonsky - Senior Account Executive, Christie Rotanz - Relationships Manager, Lori Palazzo - Production Control & Finance Administrator, Victoria Giordano - Accounting & Finance Manager and other experienced team members. Over the course of last 35+ years GNP has had the opportunity to work with the nation’s top association, corporate, government and independent meeting planners on projects ranging from conference attendees bags, badge holders and lanyards to membership gifts, speaker gifts, awards, convention apparel, tech products and many other event solutions. GNP is also a long-standing member of Meeting Planners International (MPI), American Association of Medical Society Executives (AAMSE) as well as many other organizations.
