As part of a continuing series that will be running every Thursday, we’re going to be featuring the backgrounds and services of our numerous sponsors and partners. Furthermore, we’re going to exhibit how their relationship with us is making an impact in the lives of youth and in the community. Today, our focus is on Distinct Images:

Company Overview: 

Distinct Images

Coming from the Advertising Specialty Industry, Jim Pike founded Distinct Images in 2001 with a primary goal of giving clients superior customer service, excellent quality and complete project management.

His first years were spent sharing an office with his uncle who owned a sign company, which was a great partnership to offer both of their clients a one-stop shop location for promotional products, decorated apparel and indoor + outdoor signage. Shortly after, Jim moved to the first office of his very own in the heart of Broad Ripple to embrace the community and fun environment of that area. An Artist/Sales Representative was strategically hired to assist on the artwork end, as well as help the business grow.

It worked! The company grew to an even bigger building where it still resides today. In 2012, DI increased employees from 1 to 4, and founded a separate production facility/screen printing division, Greenline Printing, which brought on 4 more team members. Here they’re 14 years later and thriving! According to their customer feedback today, Jim’s initial goal of giving clients superior customer service, excellent quality and complete project management, continues to be met.

On Fridays, when Jim gets to work, donuts magically appear in the kitchen. Their culture is laid back and our office dynamic is friendly. Every December, we have a competitive Distinct Images vs. Greenline Printing bowling battle, of which DI currently holds the {eh-hem} #1 spot. They celebrate birthdays, support local businesses and love meeting organizations involved in the community. They work hard and actually have fun doing it! It’s not just getting a product to our customers, it’s making sure they meet their demands and exceed their expectations.

Relationship with Nine13sports: 

Distinct Images blog

We just ordered a new batch of jackets from Distinct Images and they’re doing an awesome job keeping our staff warm this winter!

Our relationship with Distinct Images was formed in 2014, when we became conscious of the fact that we needed to step up our Kids Riding Bikes® marketing efforts. One way we knew we could achieve this was with excellent branding and marketing efforts, including apparel. After having unsatisfactory customer service and quality from our previous manufacturer, we stumbled upon Distinct Images. In addition to being a provider of all our apparel needs, they’re an asset to our brand and a valued member of our team. The crew at Distinct Images has repeatedly shown us that they’re the best option for our beautiful and straightforward design, great pricing, and unbelievably fast turn around. Moreover, they meet our desire to promote and work with local Indianapolis businesses.

From our team to yours, we want to thank you Distinct Images for keeping us warm during the winter, cool during the summer, for helping us improve our branding efforts, and being so easy to work with. We’re already looking forward to our next order of apparel from you!
