"There is not enough that I can say about Mara and Intention Advertising.

I first began working with Mara almost four years ago when my predecessor introduced us. I had already seen all the wonderful branded items her company provided like backpacks, insulated lunch boxes, sweatshirts and more. At this time, we were using different vendors for different items. When I saw the quality of her products, I realized it was a no-brainer. I began using her for all our promotional swag.

Since then, she has provided Stanford Earth with countless items, i.e. vests, jackets, crystal, pens, chargers, umbrellas, tee shirts, the list goes on.

Not only is the quality of the products excellent, the logos are perfect. From screens to etched or embroidered.

Most important to me is the customer service Mara provides. I have barely hit the "SEND" key on a request, and she responds! She's sweet, friendly and has boundless energy! She makes excellent recommendations as well. I have sung her praises to the Stanford community. AND, thanks to her the School of Earth, Energy and Environmental Sciences is recognized throughout the Stanford campus!"

"I have been working with Mara for nearly 10 years. Not only is she friendly & easy to work with, but Mara is always quick to respond via e-mail or phone. If needed, she'll even come by my office to drop off/pick up samples!"

"I have worked with Mara for over 10 years! She and her team are super creative in helping me find just the right item for my client development needs - even when a last minute request means scrambling to find a supplier. I would highly recommend working with Mara!"

"Mara is an absolute joy to work with, she is friendly, quick and helpful when you're looking to find that just right item for an event or giveaway. She is able to secure low pricing from her vendors, which she then passes to us. Often, when I reach out I have presentations with a variety of what I am asking for you pick from within the business day. The products she is able to deliver are always what you're wanting and the quality of those items are always great too. I will continue to work with her, as she makes a part of my job so easy to complete."

“Sarah at Intention Advertising has been a delight to work with and a great partner. She is very responsive and attentive to our needs and goes the extra mile to help us solve our promotional material needs.

When faced with a hand sanitizer shortage, Sarah was able to work her magic and fill our order the moment they came back in stock (which I'm sure was no easy feat)! She never ceases to amaze and surprise us! 

We really appreciate the attention to detail with every order we've placed - the hand written notes we get from Sarah are such a nice touch!”
