Ace Marketing & Promotions Is Getting the Industry's Attention With Counselor Magazine Cover Story and Ace's President Speaking at the ASI Show-NY

VALLEY STREAM, NY--(Marketwire - May 14, 2008) - Ace Marketing & Promotions, Inc. (OTCBB: AMKT) was featured in Counselor magazine's March issue cover story entitled "How We Became a Marketing Agency." Counselor Magazine, the Advertising Specialty Institute's monthly publication, is a must-read for anyone who needs to keep abreast of industry news and trends.

Ace is the lead "Distributor Case Study" featured in the article by Megan Hurst. In it, Michael Trepeta, president, explains how the company took the leap from "being just a seller of promotional products to being a marketing agency that prides itself on its ability to provide marketing solutions to clients." Its transformation into an integrated marketing firm has been a success, with year to year sales increasing at about 20%. The key to this success? Trepeta points to the company's ability to provide a broad range of services which has enabled it to become "trusted advisors that provide promotional marketing solutions."

"It has taken some time and hard work, but I believe Ace is heading in the right direction, and it appears that the industry has noticed. Now, with the addition of proximity marketing to go along with our suite of marketing solutions, I see great opportunities ahead of us. Hopefully the industry will be hearing a lot more about us in the near future," said CEO Dean Julia.

Counselor has been the voice of the promotional products industry since 1954. Counselor subscribers are industry leaders and sales professionals who represent approximately $18 billion in buying power. Counselor's readers, a total audience of 27,500, represent the most powerful group in the ad specialty industry.
