We believe in two things. First, the importance of higher education. And second, the need for all of us to work smarter.

One of the most enduring strengths of our country is an educated citizenry. For this reason, we know that helping students of all ages enroll and graduate from the right college is a great privilege and a great responsibility.

We know, too, that the people who work in higher education simply cannot work any harder. The only real option, then, is to work smarter. Better ideas. Better execution. Better results.

That’s our goal.

Let’s be smarter. Together.

Thought Leaders

Stamats is the nation’s thought leader in higher education integrated marketing. Our approach to each project is simple: We recognize the unique needs and expectations of each client and draw on the company’s 60+ years of higher education experience. Our people are among the best in the business, and we take our leading position in the industry seriously.

We were the first company to explore how integrated marketing communications could be adapted to higher education. But we didn’t stop there. We’re always looking inside and outside higher ed for concepts and ideas we believe our clients would value, and we enjoy providing fresh, creative thinking on critical issues and sharing those insights with others in the profession.

Stamats started as a promotion and advertising agency for Midwest retail stores in 1923. Ten years later, it expanded to include a national magazine. In the 1940s, the company integrated a printing operation, and a few years later, Stamats, Inc. began offering creative services. Colleges and universities that sought high-quality admissions publications began to take notice, and we soon found our niche serving the needs of higher education institutions across the country, a specialization that continues today.

Each year, we work with 100+ colleges and universities. Our clients, many of whom have been with us for 10, 15, and even 20 years, range from community colleges to elite liberal arts colleges to major universities. In addition to our undergraduate clients, we work with business schools, medical schools, law schools, and other graduate programs. We also assist schools with their adult, distance, and continuing education programs as well as with their international enrollment and marketing initiatives in India and elsewhere across Asia.

Promises Kept.” is more than our tagline. It’s what we do, and it’s who we are. We always commit to the highest level of professional service and attention to detail, because, in the end, we know our success is measured entirely by the success of our clients.
