"Necessity is the mother of Invention"
"Thirty years after opening our doors, I have consistently maintained the same philosophy in our house. We pride ourselves on the most responsive customer service in our industry. Listening, honesty, communication, and a SENSE OF HUMOR has built LCP to where we are. We embrace all the traits that seem to have disappeared in today’s business. With our capabilities ranging from the smallest to largest items and projects, we have helped design,
source and execute programs to our clients' exacting specifications.
You name or think of it, we've made it.
Linda Carlish (The LC of LC Premiums), founded
LC Premiums over 30 years ago as a temporary
job while looking for “real” work. Launched in a
tiny, basement apartment and armed with a
membership card to every international library in
New York City, she forged ahead with one part
time employee, a computer and fax machine. Yes,
it was the life of an entrepreneur! With sheer
determination, and the mindset that this would
now be her future, Linda built a factory base around
the world in order to achieve her prospective clients
needs as seamlessly as possible. From these humbling
beginnings, she has grown the company to what it
is today – the most relationship based, creative, and
intimate boutique merchandise house in the industry.
30 years and counting, LC Premiums continues to
work with many of those original factories and vendors,
as the relationships she started have stood the test of time.
With Reader’s Digest as the company's first major client, she caught the attention of other publishing houses Simon & Schuster and Scholastic. In just a short period of time, the industry list expanded to include new clients: Moet Hennessy, Target, Citibank, Calvin Klein, Ferrari, Liz Claiborne, Direct Travel, Patron Tequila, The James Beard Foundation and many more…
Armed with an obsessive energy force, Linda also worked with a small factory in China to start a second division to LC Premiums to develop and own the patent for The POP ART Toaster. Featured on QVC and the Home Shopping Network, Disney came calling bringing more attention to the company's capabilities. Read about it here.
Today, and still with the same owner at the helm on a daily basis, LC Premiums, LTD., continues to create, source and produce inventive products for promotional and retail programs. The design vision of LCP's creative and innovative team partnered with the factory’s technical abilities gives birth to new, fresh products, in line with your brand image via molding products from scratch or utilizing existing products in their simplest form and adding a visual twist.

Linda and her team are amazing and always wonderful to work with. The customized products they offer are above and beyond and are always a big hit for our events! They are definitely our go-to vendor!
I have worked with Linda and LC Premiums for over 10 years. They go above and beyond to make sure my projects are a success, incredible customer service, quality, and honesty. Working with them is not a typical relationship with a vendor, but that of a true partnership. Webster's Dictionary defines "Extraordinary" as going beyond what is usual, regular, or customary. What it should say is Linda Carlish and LC Premiums. Nothing else - believe it!
