Overture is one of only 12 promotional distributors from amongst 33,000 directly involved with QCA. The Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) is an independent, non-governmental, not-for-profit accrediting organization for promotional product suppliers. QCA is the only certifying organization specific to the unique processes and services of the promotional product industry. Overture is one of the original members of the Advisory Committee of the Quality Certification Alliance. Overture provides only QCA compliant products to our customers.

In daily operations, Overture is compliant with all Federal & State regulations, including OSHA. In accordance with OSHA standards, all processed materials used in the facility have MSDS (material safety data sheets) posted and on file for easy reference. All screen printing inks meet compliance standards and only certified contract services are employed for waste disposal.

We only work with suppliers that are fully compliant with all current regulations, guidelines and standards. All of the products we recommend are designed in compliance with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) regulations currently in effect. There have been many inquiries concerning the new CPSIA law, HR 4040, signed into law August 14, 2009. This law requires that all components in children’s products meet the new lead limits of 300ppm or less in substrates and 90 ppm new lead limits in surface coating.

Cutting-Edge Tools and Services

While Overture continually upgrades its technology and electronic services to meet the constantly changing need of its clients, it remains dedicated to its corporate philosophy to develop and maintain one-on-one relationships with its clients. New technologies constantly are in development to enhance the client experience; improve cost-effectiveness; and better facilitate production of imprinted promotional products, but not to replace the human experience that is the core of Overture's client-team collaborative process.

Part of Overture's ongoing commitment to quality process improvement is to constantly research and develop new imprinted promotional products, tradeshow giveaways, corporate gifts, promotional pens, advertising specialties, corporate apparel and logo products that meet the company's stringent quality standards while providing clients with new and exciting ideas.
