APS Online : Your Postcard and Souvenir People

About APS , Inc.

APS , Inc. is the most innovative postcard and souvenir distributor in the southeast. We have been in business for over forty-seven years.

Brief History

We were founded during a furlough in 1960 in Charlotte, N.C. by an airline pilot and aerial photographer, Jim Doane and his wife, Nancy. Originally we were a commercial photography house, but we soon purchased a publishing and distribution business. We grew from a domestic souvenir distributor in the 1970's to importing in 1980. We were honored to be selected as licensees of the 1996 Olympic Games, which catapulted our customer base to world wide sales.

International Market Appeal

Since our involvement in the preparation and execution of a complete market strategy for the 1996 Olympic Games, we have become even more aware of what the international community requires and expects from a marketing organization. We have put together a first in new products for the avid collector. Many of our embossed collectibles have never before been seen in the market arena, and they sell faster than we can produce them. We are offering a broad selection in our American Collector Lighthouse Series of keepsake merchandise. We also have a complete line of embossed peach merchandise.
