Harvard Strategic Procurement is pleased to announce a new Harvard online portal for ordering promotional needs for your groups meetings, events, and employee incentive programs.


Harvard’s preferred vendor, Razz-m-Tazz Promotions, specializes in many areas including promotional merchandise, recognition and award items, print materials, and embroidered and silk-screened apparel.

Founded by Gail Sabettini in 2001, this company is certified as a Woman-Owned Business (WBE) and a Small Business and they are locally based in Massachusetts. They have the ability to handle your needs from design through delivery, provide in-person service by appointment as well as research items for you based on your budget if you’re unsure of what product to purchase. “The sales associate I worked with at Razz-m-Tazz was quick to respond to my questions and kept me up to date with changes related to my order.
