The mission of Not One More is to educate and bring awareness to the epidemic mortality rate we have throughout the country from drug abuse. Not One More overdose, Not One More lost spirit, Not One More grieving heart. We use promotional products to keep our message resonating in the minds of our target markets. These products reinforce our communications as “leave behinds” when we are speaking in schools & at public venues. Working with Jim Hastings from Creative Solutions has been a blessing. His creative ideas and expertise in recommending particular products has helped us achieve our objectives.  He is diligent, professional, is very easy to work with and gets goods out quickly. I would highly recommend his services.

I have known Jim from Creative Solutions Promotions for just over a year and have used his services several times. He is efficient and bends over backwards to get you what you want. My most recent purchase was customized Arbonne umbrellas which I wanted as Christmas gifts. I described to him exactly how I wanted them to look. He sent back a virtual identical to what I had envisioned. In addition, he sent another option which looked much better than my original!  We all liked the second option and received our umbrellas two weeks ago. We could not be happier! I am a raving fan of Creative Solutions and will continue using his services.

We were in need of some new, corporate golf shirts for our company. We had previously purchased golf shirts from another company but they faded very badly. When I met with Jim Hastings at Creative Solutions he asked what qualities I was seeking in a  golf shirt. I told him I wanted something that wouldn’t fade, was available in a variety of colors and could be thrown in the washer & dryer and worn without having to iron it. He delivered exactly what we wanted and we are very happy with his services. We had issues with a few of the shirts which he replaced immediately without hesitation. We will be using his services again in the near future.

Thank you Jim for getting me my table banner so quickly. As you know at the last minute I decided to get a booth space at the Simi Valley Chamber Business Expo and needed “signage” to identify my business. You came through with flying colors… it looks great and was delivered in time for the show. Thank you very much!

I’d like to give a huge shout out to Jim Hastings at Creative Solutions. Image is very important to us and he did our corporate shirts for us. Excellent work and we surprisingly received them much faster than we had expected. Highly recommend.

Dear Jim, You are a lifesaver! I needed a promotional product for an event that was 3 days away and you delivered! I’m very happy with the customized pens. They look great!  I have told several people about you. Thanks again!

Thank you Jim for my exceptionally comfortable company tee shirts. They are amazing! You clearly know your business because I’ve never heard of this brand yet they are the softest, most elegant tee shirts I’ve ever seen. The screen printed logos look crisp and clean and really pop on the shirt. I feel very proud to wear my new corporate apparel and have had several compliments.

I am writing to you Jim to thank you for our last order of TRD tees and hoodies which we just received. As you remember, I was a “doubting Thomas” when you told me how well other Toyota dealerships were doing selling your imprinted garments. After doing my due diligence by calling some of your other Toyota clients that carry your shirts I decided to give it a shot. Needless to say, we are very happy with our decision (based on all the reorders we’ve had) Thank you again. You are a true professional and are very easy to work.

 I have been working with Jim Hastings since 2003 when I was parts manager at Acura of Stevens Creek. He has a well-deserved reputation for getting embroidered apparel out the door very quickly and accurately. I have continued to use him for our corporate apparel needs. On the few occasions where we had issues that needed to be resolved he handled them very quickly in a very professional manner. I have referred others to him and recommend him highly.

Dear Jim, 

You’re amazing.  Thank you once again for a job well done!   I was in a pinch and you came to the rescue as you have done so many times. 
I was referred to you by a colleague several years ago when I was asked to coordinate a large purchase of polo shirts for our dealerships.  Not only did I need hundreds of shirts,  in a variety of colors and many different sizes; for both men and women.  They also needed our corporate logo and a wide variety of franchise logos.  That order came in perfect, as ordered, without a single mistake. 
Your service is incredible.  We have been working together for a few years now and am pleased to say that you have been very consistent in providing us with quality embroidered corporate polo shirts for all of our Hoehn Motors Auto Group franchises. 
What I appreciate most is that you very personable and easy to work with.  You reply promptly to all my email correspondences, get our goods out to us in a timely manner.  Even when I have given you a very short window to work with, you always deliver; usually ahead of schedule.  You do excellent work and are very competitive in your pricing. If there was ever an issue, you resolved it immediately and happily.  
I am very satisfied with your work and happy to refer others to you who could benefit from your services. 
Thank you

I found myself in an awkward bind when my pen supplier called me on Wednesday to let me know they were not able to deliver my custom pens which were due on Friday. That did me absolutely no good because our annual Wedding Show Weekend event was on Sunday.
I desperately reached out to you on a recommendation from our Membership Relations Director Christina Lyttle who had used your services in the past. 
I called you at 4:30pm on Wednesday and you were able to get us our customized pens  delivered to us on Friday! 
Thank you so very much! You came through with flying colors!
I will keep in touch regarding future business together and would be happy to recommend you to others who may have needs for your services.

I started buying Toyota designed tee shirts from Creative Solutions back in 2007.  Their attention-getting designs really caught my attention. Now, whether it's shirts for our boutique, bags, corporate jackets, etc. their prices have been very competitive, their turnaround very fast and they have been very easy to work with. That makes MY job much easier!

Jim, I wanted to drop you a line and let you know how pleased we are with your customer service and the products and product recommendations we have received from you. At times you have bent over backwards to accommodate our needs which we very much appreciate. You have proven to be flexible, fair and easy to work with. Whether it's your exclusive, catchy and creative "Diamond's Lexus Girl's Best Friend" ladies crystal tee shirts (which we've done very well with), products that I have asked you to research or your very unique and personable calendars, it's always a pleasure working with you.

As you know I needed a set of t-shirts made for our church youth group.  They needed to match those that we already had in stock. Unfortunately, I did not have the original artwork but you and  Creative Solutions were able to recreate and replicate the artwork exactly and print the t-shirts for me.  The design came out great and you printed and shipped them very promptly!  We are very pleased with your wonderful customer service.  Thank you to a great company for your great work!

Thank you Jim for your expertise and recommendation in using your promotional "gift sets" as a way of showing gratitude to our new car buyers.
Six months ago we were searching for a solution to increase our CSI scores at our dealership.
Knowing that most people are apprehensive when coming to a dealership to purchase or lease a vehicle, we want to give our customers the most pleasant, positive experience possible. 
Our primary objectives were to convert buyers into extremely satisfied and loyal customers who will return to our dealership for their service needs, not hesitate to refer us to their family members and friends and to increase our CSI scores.
Your promotional product gift set recommendation is working extremely well for us in accomplishing these goals.  Our new car buyers are thrilled when they receive their gift sets and I am very happy to report that our CSI scores have gone up by 25%!
Lastly, I know we just put in an order at the end of December for another 200 gift sets.  Could you please check back with us next month to see if we are in need to replenish our inventory.

In this day and age where everything is "Googleable" and you think you can cut out the middle man to save costs for marketing and promotional merchandise... Jim Hastings from Creative Solutions proves you wrong.
Jim is a pleasure to work with and is a superb communicator. He asked us probing questions, attentively listened to our needs, understood our goals and helped us select well thought out, appropriate and sound promotional products for our 30 year anniversary gift baskets.
Working within our budget and being mindful of presenting different pricing options, Jim not only saved us hundreds of dollars but took this project off our plates so we could focus on other tasks! He truly is a one stop shop; he's very knowledgeable, resourceful, has many connections, knows his industry and puts your needs first to ensure your happiness. And BTW, he delivered on his promise to get us all seven of our promotional items ahead of schedule.
For a millennial tech-savvy, resourceful person as myself, Jim proved his value and worth. He definitely opened our eyes to the benefits of working with a trusted promotional marketing specialist and we highly recommend him. Wesely Thomas Enterprises is a company that values integrity and Jim Hastings has the utmost integrity, professionalism and knowledge of the industry. If you are seeking peace of mind and tangible solutions to your promotions go with Creative Solutions.

Creative Solutions is who I use for corporate apparel and special needs projects. If I have any project that I need to get done I call Jim first.  He's very efficient and gets the job done very quickly. On various occasions when I was given a last minute project that had tight deadlines, Jim always comes through with flying colors (and makes me look good in front of my General Manager)! He's told me his job is to make me look good and he's done that several times. I look forward to continue working with him. Whether I'm looking for a special gift for a grand opening, employee shirts or products to sell out of our boutique I know if I call Jim he'll get it done right, at the right price and get it delivered promptly.
