Just a Few Advantages In Working With R&D Specialty...

Read More >


No Set-Up, Screen, Art or Bar Code/Pre-Price charges!

In addition to our low prices, R&D does not charge for any of these extras! Beware of suppliers that charge extra for these services. Once these extra fees are amortized, the total item price can be much higher than originally expected.


R&D will invoice the actual university royalty rate!

R&D does not charge a higher "flat royalty rate" or additional "admin charge." At invoicing, we will bill royalties according to the actual university rate. If you're a 15% royalty school, you'll be charged 15% and if you're an 8% royalty, you'll be charged 8% - nothing more.


R&D has a nationwide sales force!

R&D has a sales force spanning the country. Our multi-line sales reps are some of the best in the industry, offering other quality product lines in addition to the extensive R&D gift line.


R&D has over 120 USA-Made Items!

Both our catalog and website display over 120 Made in USA items and more will be added as they are available. USA Made item purchases support USA operated companies, creating more jobs and stimulating the economy.


R&D has multiple FOB points for many items!

R&D is able to ship from multiple factory locations across the country on many items. Instead of shipping these items across the country, we will use the closest FOB point, saving you both time and money while increasing your profit margin!


R&D offers superior customer service!

Rather than a recording or having to leave a message, R&D has a live person to answer your call. Yes, we do have and use voicemail and an after-hours auto attendant, but a live person to answer your call and question(s) during normal business hours saves you valuable time.
