Someone called and said they were from "VPI in San Diego how is the weather there in Arlington VA." What? I am at work, I don't have time to talk about the weather so I said "I'm sorry, what company?" To which he replied "VPI in San Diego how is the weather there in Arlington?" To which I replied "And what is 'VPI?' (ignoring the ridiculous weather question) and he hung up! Wow, great marketing! I was curious who on earth would hang up on someone who simply asked what their company was, so I googled it and came here, and no surprise, almost every post talks about how rude they are. No idea how this company is staying in business.
Rude telemarketing practices. After a polite request to be removed from the call list, caller was rude, short and hung up on me.
We love the pens we received. Now we have a new business and I sought them out because we will only buy their pens.
Excellent Company, Looking Forward To doing Business This Year.
Promotional Products – Love My sales Guy I have Been Doing Business with this company since 1989 a couple weeks ago i called and ordered pens and sports schedules awsome job guys like always
Rudest Sales People EVER!! – I have just dealt with a salesman named Justin for the 20th time. Each time he has tried to talk to the owner using different ruses. Since we are an accounting business, Justin tries to contact us by saying he has a 1099 issue and will only speak to the owner, or he calls and asks for the owner by name stating that they are friends. When he can't get through to the owner, he is either insulting or hangs up. I have had enough. Apparently he doesn't realize that you should be nice to the person who answers the phone. The owner does NOT want to talk to these people nor do business with this company because they have misrepresented themselves as a company that also helps Veterans and the products are of mediocre quality.
After writing this review, we will be blocking all numbers that come in from this place. The ones that do get through will not be handled so nicely!!
PS The only reason I am giving them 1 star is because this review requires a rating before publishing.
Always some thing wrong – So being in a new area, I needed my name out there and thought Veterans sales person was funny and they were offering a reasonable price for the Pen's that I wanted. I ordered multi because if I ordered one color (blue) I would have had to pay more, got the pens they write great, the shirt clip is flimsy and breaks very easily but hey it's a nice pen, but not one blue pen was sent with my order. Next time Pensellenhelen called she wanted me to buy shopping bags, I told he about the blue pens .. well if I buy the shopping bags she'll send me 100 pens (all blue) free .. so I bit got the blue pens and Credit card was charged and never received the bags, I called left several messages and never got a return call, finally my friend PennSellenHelen calls me i told her I never got the bags she transferred my call to the guy that I had been leaving messages ons email and he told me that they ran out of the size I ordered and they would "upgrade" to the larger bag, got the larger bag a week later then they said it would be and there is not bottom insert to keep it steady.. no no there is more, I go another call bought still more stuff .. Pencils this time for the kids at Halloween, she assured me they would be there by the 17th ( they arrived the 19th ok I'll give them 2 days) the neon pencils came in red blue green yellow and orange, my box only had green yellow and orange in it they had ink splattered all over them all of them sharpened and on them besides my name was a little Halloween witch ( I didn't ask for nor did I discuss this) Well now because of bad weather the Halloween stroll was canceled and I have a box of pencils that can only be given out at Halloween. Honestly they were willing to fix what I complained about but who wants to complain all the time, you decided if using them is worth it. I think I am going elsewhere next time I need something.
owner and crazy salesman is same guy – If this nut keeps calling and you and his number is unlisted so you can't block it then block the numbers 858-292-8578
and 858-598-2904 So far he has called and tormented us using both of those phone numbers. I will write a new Review for each time he calls us from now on and give more numbers for people to block. People are behind bars for being less crazy than this nut.

October 27 ----He called again---He knows he will never sell us any of his junk again but he just loves to call and shout at us over the phone. This time his 3 was 598-2908----one more to block.
RUDE & PUSHY – My boss, being the nice guy that he is agreed to buy koozies & pens. The sales rep sent the product & charged the company more than he said it was going to cost. The pens do not even write. Since then he will not stop calling, he has actually cussed @ me several times ( i suppose he didn't realize I make financial decisions for the company) explained to me how he has helped my boss out for over 2yrs with his business & started a friendship (business has not even been in business for 2yrs) We have caller ID and he would call & hang up..finally he called & got my boss which is also my brother, & tried to get me fired! He told my boss that he had a family to feed & needed to make a sale & would not stop so finally my boss got rude right back! Since then he has not called. I know he may hv been working on commission but that is not the way to sell. He demanded me to give him his cell # because he needed to talk to him..all kinds of crazy stuff!! BUYER BEWARE!!!
