Sherman Specialty Company, Inc was established in 1950 by
Paul Sherman as a provider of toys and novelties for dental and medical
professionals. Using knowledge and experience in merchandising, sourcing and
importing, the dental and medical business developed beyond the two man
operation and staff and facilities were added.
While maintaining a leadership position in the dental retail
market for giveaways and novelties, the company began expanding in other
markets. In 1955, using its skills in importing, Sherman Specialty began
supplying restaurants with crayons and novelty giveaways. In the 50+ years as a
supplier to restaurants, the company has sold over a trillion crayons.
Further leveraging company skills in merchandising and
importing, the company began serving the entertainment industry in 1981,
supplying party planners and entertainers with fun, giveaway items used at
parties and events. Sherman Specialty continues to be a leader and top 3
supplier to entertainment companies across the country.
With decades of experience serving professional and wholesale
markets, the company targeted the retail market for party supplies as a growth
area. The 4FunParties.com party store was launched in 1998. The company continues to supply over 6,000 party
supplies items to consumers.
With a 100,000 square foot distribution center and
print operation and over 70 employees, the still family-owned business
continues to serve these wholesale and retail markets. With decades of
experience and knowledge in merchandising, sourcing and importing toys,
novelties, and other premiums and giveaways, Sherman Specialty maintains its
focus on product quality, safety and value as well as excellent service and
support of our customers and partners.
