Client Testimonials


"I have worked with Joel Kaplan and the wonderful team at Specialties, Inc. for more than 20 years. They are creative, friendly, competitive and, most important of all, truly a pleasure to work with. At NRF, we expect a lot and prefer to build lasting relationships with the people and companies who make our business run. The Specialties Team has never let us down."
- Mike Gatti, SVP Member Relations, National Retail Federation

"Specialties, Inc. has been a staunch supporter of Hope Connections for Cancer Support since our inception in 2005. We would not have experienced the growth we have enjoyed over the years without the help and support of Joel Kaplan and his remarkable team of professionals. We think of Specialties, Inc. as a partner, not a vendor, so much so that we gave them our Partnership Award at our 2011 Celebration of Hope Gala. Everyone at the company is a pleasure to work with, and there is great comfort in knowing that we can always turn to Specialties, Inc. for great ideas, quality products and a commitment to meet our needs while keeping an eye on our budget and deadlines."
- Paula Rothenberg, President & CEO, Hope Connections for Cancer Support

"I've been working with Joel Kaplan and Specialties, Inc. for more than 30 years. Over this time Joel and his staff have provided great ideas, quality products at reasonable prices, and personalized service beyond compare. No matter the request, they always come through in a way that makes my job easier and pleases my clients. I highly recommend Specialties, Inc. for your promotional product needs."
- David Barrack, Executive Director, National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters

"We have been working with Specialties for years and it’s a partnership that has been invaluable to our organization. We often come to them with tight budgets, short timelines, or odd product requests and they always find a way to make it work. In one instance when a product was not shipped in time, someone from Specialties drove to the factory to pick up our order and hand-delivered it, just so we would have what we ordered in time for an event. It’s rare to find a company that has such great prices while still providing this kind of outstanding customer service."
- Kate Londen, Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity (URGE)

"Specialties, Inc. is one of the best suppliers in the business. They go the extra mile to make sure your product is perfect and arrives on time. I have tried other vendors and none compare to them! I have worked with them for 10 years and I will continue to boast about their services!"
- Rashida Williams, TKJ Events

"Working with Joel and Elisabeth of Specialties, Inc. was a treat! We had several items we needed, with very short notice. We felt like we were the most important customer they had, and that we had their full attention! Their advice as to item selection was right on, and we received all items exactly as promised. I will happily work with Specialties, Inc. for any future needs!"
