About Image Outfitters

Image Outfitters has been providing custom promotional products for businesses around the world and proudly contributing to nonprofit organizations since its founding in 1998 by Esbert and Kirsten Cardenas. During the economic downturn, Esbert and Kirsten noticed many worthwhile organizations suffering from under funding and in response created iShare. iShare is a Charitable Donations Program that allows Image Outfitters’ customers to help better their communities by donating 10% of the sales to the charity of their choice.

The first iShare donation was made in April of 2013, and donations have since exceeded $140,000 to over 140 different charities. “Giving back feels rewarding, and we want to share that feeling with all of our customers,” says Esbert Cardenas. “iShare provides an opportunity to not only feel good about your contribution, but to also see it in action in your community or any worthwhile cause where you choose to direct it.”

Image Outfitters does not inflate prices in order to cover the iShare donations. In fact, Image Outfitters is willing to meet or beat any competitor’s pricing before donating a percentage of the sale to charity. Go to www.hallofshare.com and see an up to date listing of donations made!

We have always been socially conscious as individuals, trying to be aware of minimizing our overall "footprint" as much as possible and helping those in need. Therefore when we started our business we were determined to run as sustainable a business as possible. Our goal was to balance the needs and desires of employees, customers, the community and the business shareholders. Sustainable is really the key word and over the years our business structure has been continually modified to fit this goal. Becoming a B-Corp acknowledges our success and enables us to spread the message that it is possible to run a well-balanced business.

The Change We Seek®

Image Outfitters exists to enhance its customers’ brand through promotional products directed to their customers, suppliers, employees and other shareholders. Image Outfitters helps its customers make their marketing dollars work more effectively in the communities in which they do business not only through the promotional products they purchase, but also through the iShare Charitable Donations Program where Image Outfitters gives back 10% of new sales to the charity of their customer’s choice.

If everyone works together, great things can be done for our communities because iShare works! The world can be a better place if everyone takes care of themselves and those around them. Image Outfitters strives to conduct their business in an environmentally and socially responsible manner, offering many green products and always looking to make a difference in the communities in which they and their customers operate. They incentivize customers to give back to charities they know are most effectively serving those in need. Image Outfitters hope other businesses will see their business model and will be inspired to do the same!

What makes us a better company?
