We hope that this note finds you and your extended family healthy and safely “Sheltered In Place”. This is certainly a time for concern for the health and safety of our loved ones.
Looking ahead to when businesses will be allowed to reopen and the economy begins to get restarted, we wanted to let you know that the production timelines for personal care products such as hand sanitizers and face coverings are significantly longer than what was “usual” before the pandemic hit our shores. It is common right now to see production schedules in these product categories in the four to six to eight week range. There are faster options (depending on your quantity needed and style preferred), but production space and raw materials are booking swiftly.
So as you develop your company’s gameplan for bringing your employee teams back to work, now is the time to start your plans for personal care items so you are at the head of the pack. Once the timelines for reopening the economy are announced, a tidal wave of orders will hit the factories and we would not be surprised to see production schedules stretch to a ten weeks or longer cycle.
Be well and stay safe. We are here to help you as the new paradigm unfolds.

CONGRATULATIONS to these 2 Onyx superstars for receiving their C.A.S. accreditation, with over 100+ hours of promotional products industry course work completed. And to top it all of…they passed the test!
The CAS accreditation is an industry benchmark; it demonstrates industry knowledge across our marketplace. It shows a dedication to high standards and establishes credibility amongst colleagues, clients, employers, and peers. Its a BIG DEAL!!
We are very proud of this accomplishment. Chris and Morgan, we appreciate the meaningful contribution that both of you make to Onyx and the difference that your skills and passion bring to Onyx’s customers on a daily basis.
Quality custom socks produced & delivered in less than 2 weeks
In keeping with Alation’s NASA space theme & the gumption to target and accomplish the impossible, Onyx was asked to deliver custom, space themed, compression socks in less than two weeks for an EVENT! Working closely with our “we can do anything” minded business partner and buyer, Dave Stevens, Onyx set to work…and we made it happen. In fact, we delivered a day early! The bulk of the socks shipped from our Turkish manufacturer direct to 2 different events in Orlando and Boston, and the remainder of the product has been warehoused and will drop-ship to future, national events.
Socks are popular right now, but Alation’s compressions socks stood out as the best, for quality, function, and consumer response. “We had the idea to make compression socks, a more technical product (and harder to find)…and this differentiator helped us to stand out!” said Dave Stevens. And, perhaps the value of gifting the highest quality was summarized best by an anonymous show attendee who received the socks as a giveaway. “Oh, wait, these are compression socks? I will definitely keep these & give all the other socks that I have collected today to my kids!”
If you have a creative challenge, please give Onyx a call. And then, it’s up, up, and away!!!
