About Us



Action Plus Ideas was founded in August of 1992. Eric Lerner, the President of Action Plus Ideas, was a systems consultant with Andersen Consulting in Philadelphia and Washington, DC. After working at Andersen Consulting, Eric was a real estate financial analyst with LaSalle Partners in Washington, DC. To satisfy his entrepreneurial spirit, he moved back to Charlotte, NC and started Action Plus Ideas. Working out of an apartment, Eric partnered with a small local screenprinting shop and started selling to schools and small organizations. From those humble beginnings, Action Plus Ideas eventually became one of the leading promotional product distributors in Charlotte serving local and national accounts.


We have a weekly huddle to come up with creative concepts for each client requesting ideas. These innovative sessions allow us to utilize our creative resources to come up with optimal and successful promotions for our clients.


In 2005, we were invited to join The Premier Group, the largest national alliance of elite distributors in our industry. We are the exclusive Premier Member in North Carolina which gives us the advantage of better pricing and quicker turn around.

Causes We Support

At Action Plus Ideas we strongly believe in giving back to the community. As a company we are very involved with many organizations and encourage everyone to support a charity they believe in.
