I’m Woody Kaye and I founded Corporate Values in 1999 to fulfill my entrepreneurial spirit and help businesses of all shapes and sizes cement their brand in the marketplace. I am both proud and humbled by our success in building long-term relationships and finding creative solutions to keep you top of mind with your clients and prospects. More importantly, our clients are so satisfied with us they are willing to take the time to say so. For example, one client said, “Woody and his team provide us with excellent customer service and great attention to detail. They consistently produce creative merchandise that makes our firm stand out from our competitors.” You can read more from our clients here.
In a world that operates at the speed of light, where it seems that everything needs to be done yesterday and where what’s “new” can become “old” overnight, we strive to stay one step ahead of the curve. We don’t just sell branded products like pens and coffee mugs. We build relationships. We get to know your business and your industry. We get into the heads of your clients and help you provide them with something that gives you “shelf space” in their minds.
There’s a lot of noise in our world, images flash by our eyes constantly. If you want to be heard and remembered by your clients and prospects, we can help you. We are where old-fashioned values of quality, service and relationships are on our top shelf.
Every brand has a story to tell in an increasingly cluttered marketplace. So how do you deliver new and different but resonate as “on brand” and relevant? The Corporate Values team is committed to CV Brand Stewardship©, our daily practice of understanding and nurturing your brand. We attempt to fully understand the significance of your brand in the lives of people who use or buy it.
That’s why we invest in CV Brand Stewardship©. Our fresh, new infusion of products and services is just one way we meet our own goals in customer satisfaction and repeat business, both of which are at an all-time high.
How CV Brand Stewardship Works to Distinguish Your Brand:
- Gauge the market
- Identify trends
- Understand your target
- Examine an event tie-in, if any
- Discuss solutions
Corporate Values knows that companies need new, different, and creative ways to bolster a consumer’s relationship with their brand. And we understand that perfection in that logoed product, solid pricing, reliable deliver—are all critical components of a good marketing toolbox.
1. We help our clients stand apart instead of becoming part of the noise. “’Me too’ will not do”
It’s estimated that of the $24B spent annually on promotional products, up to 50% get tossed out. Let us take your end goal and come up with unique solutions that really engage. A real estate management company wanted a way to make their risk management training more interactive. We proposed a fully custom Jenga game using different colored pieces to represent different risk management themes. We took it a step further and proposed engraving unique topics on each piece. The client reported the trainees were significantly more engaged and facilitators saw increased active participation over previous trainings. To pique the participants interest even more, the game was packaged in a custom box designed to mimic an apartment building. If you want to be different rather than get lost in the clutter give us a call.
2. Offload stress and logistics. “Keep calm because we are”
Promotional product buyers wear many hats and need channel partners who will take the load off. Rather than source products individually and ship them on their own, a renowned international university tasked us with proposing health and wellness kits that could be sent to 2000 faculty members around the world. We designed 3 different kits complete with custom packaging that the faculty member would then be able to choose from in advance while delivering on the university’s budget and quality standards. We handled all sourcing, warehousing, kitting and fulfillment so the university didn’t have to. They were thrilled therefore so were we. If your project has complexity, we have the technology, supply chain management and warehouse logistics to make it happen.
3. Last minute is our first calling. “A gap in planning on our client’s part doesn’t constitute an emergency on our part”
Last minute ordering has become the norm in our age of ‘need it yesterday’ gratification. With Corporate Values, there’s no need to stress. A local university client called requesting security uniforms for some last-minute hires and needed them that day. With many of our top-tier suppliers located within 50 miles and our own in house finishing capabilities, we were able to pull it off and deliver same day. When clients have in-hand pressure we’re equipped to take it on. If you think it can’t be done, call us anyway.

About Woody Kaye
Woody is a former banker whose enthusiasm for sports coincided with an entrepreneurial spirit. He recognized that great brands, whether a bank or a consumer product, must deliver their message in multiple channels, if they expect to foster a special relationship with consumers. Everything decorated with his customer’s brand has one of their top goals in mind, to capture more buyers for their goods and services. Like Nordstrom’s in retail Corporate Values works to win for their customers in marketing every day in every way.
Consumer relationships with brands are not unlike relationships between people.
Both demand attention and investment. So Woody leveraged his own successful Banking relationships to engage with marketers, starting with sponsored sports events. Many clients chatted up “that great logo shirt”, or continued to use the same, favorite, logo mug 10 years later.
Corporate Values invests not only in its customer and prospect relationships, but also in relationships with suppliers.
Suppliers aren’t vendors; they’re business partners, sharing the best, on-trend, most creative products for clients. It is this collaborative approach that helps Corporate Values uncover the most fun, functional and trendy products, ahead of other promotion and logo companies.
