SmithDryden was established in 1991 by Debra Dryden and began business as Smith Advertising. The company name was updated to SmithDryden, LLC in 2000, incorporating the family name Dryden. Not only did the rebranding help the company stand out from other businesses, it truly became a family business when Debra's son Michael Smith joined the company in 2009.

Edmond was the perfect place to locate SmithDryden due to Edmond's growing community and quality of life. Customers can visit the company's fabulous showroom at 2801 Coltrane Place, Suite 4 in Edmond where they can see thousands of different items and enjoy a fun promotional experience.
In 2016, SmithDryden made the prestigious Greater Oklahoma City Chamber Metro 50 List for a third time. The Metro 50 List recognizes the metropolitan area's fastest-growing privately held companies with revenues of at least $1 million. They also have been honored with Advertising Specialty Institute Distributor to Buyer of the Year and numerous other awards and recognitions!

The company's goals for the future remain unchanged: to help build clients' brands through smart, creative promotional marketing combined with excellent customer service. This includes offering new services such as company stores, warehousing, and fulfillment. With more than 27 years experience, SmithDryden remains true to their brand to provide the best in promotional marketing to their clients!
