MR Promotions & Apparel
"Our business is promoting yours!"
Owner Kelsey Hufnagel has owned MR Promotions & Apparel since April 2017. When the Trusted Saskatoon team sat down with Kelsey and heard what the name stood for and learnt more about her business we knew that she was authentic, genuine and definitely had high business etiquette with customer service at the forefront!
Did you know it's actually MR Promotions & Apparel not Mr. Promotions & Apparel? This was part of the great conversation that we had with Kelsey had when we first sat down together. She shed the reason behind the name.
"MR Promotions & Apparel or MR Promo as most people like to call us, is a heart and mind name combined. I needed something that would not only stand out, but careful not to be too trendy and I wanted a name that would withstand the test of time. I love MR Promo and what better way to include the initials of my children in the title. I have a daughter Maycyn who is 16 and a son Robbie who is 17. We have been through many challenges and lived bare cupboards for so long that I needed to do this for them. They have gone through a lot and that is why MR Promo name truly is a family name. Adding Promotions and Apparel is important because the advertising speciality industry is all about including apparel with promotional items. I wanted a name that would stand out and be recognizable. A name people could TRUST! MR Promo was unavailable as a business name so we designed it as part of the logo. Everyone still calls us MR. Promo and we knew that would happen and we love it! When people find out that MR actually stands for my kids names they are blown away and we all share in a good chuckle and laugh about it. It is a great way for me to connect with my clients. " - Kelsey Hufnagel (Owner MR Promotions & Apparel)
Everyone knows that authenticity is everything to us at Trusted Saskatoon and we definitely know that Kelsey and her team are the real deal after chatting with some of her clients! We shared some on the MR Promo listing here - and here are some more comments from other clients.
"Kelsey is fantastic, outgoing and knows what she is doing. We had a great experience with her. We are currently going through the purchasing pages on MR Promo right now and she's been absolutely fantastic. We give her a 10/10 and would definitely recommend her," - Angie Sandin (Willowpoint Financial)
"Kelsey is currently working with us for our re-branding and we have a short timeline. She has been working directly with us to get things embroidered and quoted a very fair price. She is great at communicating deadlines and there have been no surprises. She is on top of everything, very professional, very good at knowing what we want and honest about all the products! She has our recommendation!" - Courtney Tuck (SureGrowth Technologies)
We asked Kelsey what her favourite success story has been so far and this is what she had to say:
"Honestly, I was asked by a significant role model in the Promo industry from the United States to be on his radio program. I didn't think I could do it, but it was an hour long and only felt like 5 minutes. To be recognized in the U.S. where the promotional industry is gigantic was a big deal for me. It has given me more credibility in the in the industry. It has also connected me to so many people that I needed and wanted to to help grow my business. My most exciting request so far was from the Regina Food Bank to quote 5000 shirts! It's very exciting!"
We are proud to have Kelsey and her business MR Promotions & Apparel on our directory of excellence. She passed our verification process with flying colours and you will love her personality, promptness and all the great products she offers!

Printers and cartridges can really range in price. So how can you tell if you are getting a good deal? Let the experts explain in this article: There are a few things to look for.
1. Cost of the printer – If the printer is under $100, it is almost a guarantee your ink cartridges will be pricey. Lots of printer companies put out cheap printers at a loss only to recoup their losses “hand over fist” with their expensive inkjet cartridges.
2. Cost of the ink – Most printers have their ink or toner number on the outside of the box. Research the price of the cartridge(s) and how many pages’ maximum it is rated for. Keep in mind page rating are based on a maximum yield, not on an average yield. Look for a printer that has a reliable generic cartridge to reduce your cost of printing.
3. Tri-color VS Tank cartridges – There are two main designs of inkjet printers. One has all colors locked into one cartridge, the other has each color separate. Traditionally, the individual tanks with each color separated tend to be more affordable and produce a better quality print.
There are many factors that go into choosing the right printer. Contact the experts at Prairie Laser if you need help selecting your new printer!

Choosing A Printer?
Have you ever walked into an electronic/office supply store to be greeted by aisles and aisles of printers? Most people have. How can you identify the good quality from the poor quality, and how can you locate the most economical printer?
Follow these steps to make your shopping trip easier.
1. Identify the main purpose for your printer. Paperwork or high-quality color printing?
If it is paperwork, you could go for a laserjet printer (either monochrome or color). If you are wanting to do some color or photos, a high-quality color inkjet is for you.
2. Do require color printing? If you don't need color, definitely look at a monochrome laserjet printer. You can select features such as scanning, copying, and faxing within the laserjet family.
3. What is the cost per page?
To find this, you take the cost of the cartridges and divide them by their approximate page rating. This will give you a rough idea of what printer has an economical cartridge versus one that is not economical. Typically we say under $0.04 per print is economic for monochrome, and under $0.15 for color prints is economic (add both the black and color cartridges together and divide by the total page rating). Look at our Fuzion ink and toner cartridges to save money on your ink supplies.
4. Choose your extra functions!
Select the functions and features you want for your printer. Some models are wireless, others are not. Do you want it to work with a phone or tablet? Make sure it is Airprint ready. Do you want it to double side automatically? Look for duplexing. Keep in mind, certain features cost more than others, so keep those features in mind when you look at the price of the printer.
5. You get what you pay for.
Have you ever seen those smoking deals for printers at $49.95 at a department store? Buyer beware! These printers are often "cash cows" where the ink cartridges cost more than DOUBLE the cost of the printer. In addition, the ink that comes with any printer is only a sample. This means the starter cartridges are only 20% or so full. Don't be fooled by the cheap price tag, you may end up paying $80.00 to print only 200 pages... ($0.40 per page. WAY too much!).
If you have questions about what method of printing to choose and can't decide, contact us at anytime! We are here to help!
