Our History

After working in the industry for many years, husband and wife team, Al and Maria Vazquez, formed Active World in 1999 as a screen printing and embroidery business for the garment industry. The business thrived and a loyal customer base developed.

In 2006, a strategic change was made to the company’s mission to provide promotional products and marketing solutions. The team was expanded with the addition of experienced staff and industry consultants. Strategic alliances were forged with companies to provide competitive pricing. Active World’s product diversified to include apparel, caps, bags, pens, mugs, mouse pads and other custom premium products. This was so successful that in 2009, Active World was named the Minority Business Enterprise of the Year by the City of New York.
