OUR NAME

DID YOU KNOW the word KRAM in Sweden means "HUG" ?

Hugs are a great way to express affection. Hugging shows that you care about a person and that you support that person.

3. to take up (a new idea)
4. to comprise or include as an integral part
5. to encircle or enclose

In essence, while we at Kram and Associates Marketing Solutions, don't spend all day 'kramming,' or 'hugging' each other (well... unless someone needs that), we do embrace diversity, readily accept each other's differences, willingly share our strengths, take up and formulate new ideas, and challenge ourselves to produce high-quality work that will bring us referrals and repeat business!

At Kram and Associates Marketing Solutions, we actively listen to our clients, and include their ideas, philosophy, brand and corporate message as an integral part of the work we produce for them.

We challenge ourselves to meet and exceed client expectations, everytime!

Open QuotesWYANDOT LAKE: Janice C. Shepherd — Director of Marketing

It has been my pleasure to work with Mark for the past several years for most of my printing needs. I have always found him to be professional and courteous.

Mark Hall has met many of my unique printing and specialty needs. This was no easy task. At Wyandot Lake, I have been challenged to try many new marketing products. Whether it is from changing a two color piece to a four color one or creating new point-of-purchase displays, Mark has found solutions.

If I needed sample, he provided them or photos to assist with my decision. We have purchased banners, mid-way signs, decorative flags, promotional magnets, pins and shirts. I have found all I have to do is ask, “What if?” and my wish materializes.

This is all ade possible because of the variety of vendors that Mark have develop relationships. On a rare occasion that something may not turn out as expected, it is important to know that every accommodation is made to make it right. I would recommend Mark Hall

Open QuotesTHE KROGER CO.: Jo Ford — Customer Relations Supervisor

Kram & Associates, specifically Mark Hall is at the top of my list of companies that I would recommend to anyone wanting a high quality product at a very reasonable cost.

Recently we have taken our partnership to a new level as Mark and his team actually “created” the design for our Kroger Columbus Christmas card. The team incorporated some nostalgic photos that were specific to our division and made our card unique and heartfelt to our associates. With cost in mind, Mark again made sure we were getting a top notch product of fine quality at a very affordable cost.

Mark is “Johnny-on-the-spot” – only a phone call away, and we appreciate this type of loyalty in a partnership when our need is sometimes, yesterday! His personal “We can do that” service is one of the many reasons Kram & Associates remains in the first call for our printing and design work within The Kroger Columbus Division.
