“Uniquely” was created, developed and produced by Impact Communications Ltd. in 1989 in British Columbia and over 16 years expanded to programs across Canada ((Uniquely BC, Uniquely Alberta, Uniquely Prairies, Uniquely Ontario and Uniquely Canada) and internationally (Uniquely Slovenia).
During that time, over 12,000 Canadians chose “Uniquely” as their source for product, business and trade development to launch their products in the wholesale gift show marketplace.
Over the years, Impact has had the pleasure of witnessing the growth, development and success of these companies; and most importantly, creating lasting relationships and friendships. The innovative and creative products produced by each micro-entrepreneur have helped build the lasting identity of the “Uniquely” best practices model, and has been adapted and modified for many developing countries.

Attending trade shows consistently increases the number of new retailers I sell to and increases my total dollar sales.
