Remember 1979?

Sony released the Walkman and we created the first personalized watch.

The story of THE CSI GROUP begins way back in 1979 when Jack Rogers crafted a way to personalize watches for retiring employees.

1980 – Canadian Spirit (now CSI Medallions) etched and evolved

Steve Brown partnered with Jack in the early 1980s. Together they saw an opportunity to inlay gold and silver etched medallions on more than watches. The CSI Medallion collection grew to include writing instruments, desk accessories, leather gifts, travel bags, clocks and more.

In the late 1990s Steve expanded the business and began the journey of adding niche brands.


Remember 1979?

Emblematic Jewelry

The emblematic collection was created to honor a company’s loyal and proud employees. Custom lapel pins, cufflinks and personalized rings indicate a monumental achievement or career. CSI’s emblematic jewelry line is known industry-wide for quality and originality.


ADSPEC Images – Trade Show Supplier

Cam McKenzie joined Steve to run the Ad Spec Images business in 2002. Sadly in November of 2022 Steve lost his partner and long-time friend.

For over 20 years, Cam spearheaded the team at Ad Spec Images, Canada’s leading provider of event banners, tents and tradeshow accessories for the Promotional Products Industry.


CUFFWEAR - Dress For The Moment

Cuffwear is the brainchild of Chris Zownir, a Toronto entrepreneur who joined the THE CSI GROUP of Boutique Brands in 2013.

Since its inception, Cuffwear has been providing distributors with stunning and unique cufflinks. From formal to casual, classic to playful, there are unique cufflinks and Wurkin Stiffs for every personality and occasion.


The INITIALS CO. – Seeing Your Name Never Gets Old

Steve bought the INITIALS collection because this patent-pending brand offers superior personalization – quickly. Our mantra: get ready for the WOW! This collection wins over crowds at golf tournaments and company events.


SIMPLEX – The Sharpest Tools In The Group

Orest Kostecki runs this brand and is known for his responsive service and attention to detail. Simplex is the leading Canadian supplier of quality flashlights for promotional products distributors.


CSI Wearables – We Love Small Orders

The CSI Group of partners are constantly trying to “one up” each other with gifts (and gags). CSIwearables spun out of the need to get a funny “boys weekend” quote printed on one T-Shirt. Give an entrepreneur an idea and you’ll get a new business!


Top Gluv – Brand The Hand

Order as few as 25 custom branded golf gloves or gift sets with your client’s logo. Our quality gloves are ideal for golf tournaments, corporate gifting and marketing.


LUGGIT - Branded Travel

Never lose your bag in a sea of black luggage again. Custom-branded luggage with your design, brand colors, fonts, and text.
