Celebrating 10 Years of Custom Promotional Products Manufacturing

Angela McReynolds CEO PhotoDevelopment Plus, Inc. (aka DPI Promo) is a woman and minority owned business started by

Angela McReynolds in 2003 which specializes in custom design and manufacturing of unique limited or collector’s edition components and premium promotional merchandise for the entertainment industry. As a native of Hong Kong, Angela got her start managing toy manufacture projects for Mattel & Hasbro while at Tomei Toys in Southern China. After spending more than a decade in Los Angeles working her way to a top position at leading promotional products company GMPC, she broke out on her own to start DPI in partnership with her sister in Hong Kong.

 

The initial growth of the company was driven by production of pharmaceutical sales models that would make their way into your local doctor’s office. Once regulations to limit gifting practices were passed around 2007, Development Plus began migrating business into the entertainment industry…starting with premium swag for movie releases. The skills and talent used to design and manufacture those models transferred well into collectible statues for the video game and entertainment industry, and we found it was much more interesting to create knights, warriors and zombies than the human digestive system.

As business continued to expand, Angela convinced her husband David to leave a successful sales career to come on board as Chief Operating Officer to run the finance and administrative side of the business. The pairing proved to be magical as more and more of the entertainment industries top brands flocked to DPI Promo via word of mouth advertising. Today the business continues to expand its foothold as a leader in the collector’s edition video game space, while maintaining the ability to support various entertainment industry launches with custom promotional merchandise.
