If you're just starting out or want to know more about how to create a retail line of products, I created Branding 101, a Mini-Course to guide you through the benefits of branding and share the quick & easy process of elevating your brand through creating unique custom products.

The Free 4-part training introduces you to the concept of custom products, gives you plenty of ideas, and examples of how to create your own line of products.  


Branding 101 Course

Make A Statement. Your Statement.

You love great SWAG. So do your customers.

There is no reason to settle for a plain, boring one-color logo slapped onto any old product.

There are thousands of options from which to choose, and I will help you sort through the clutter and offer you choices so you can select the best product for your budget and your brand.

It's easy:

  • Choose a product
  • Send us your artwork
  • We do the rest.

We offer low minimums, fast turnaround (usually about a week) and best of all, our almost all of our products are proudly printed right here in the USA.

Custom Products & Product Development

When The Opry Entertainment Group wanted something unique for their new camo line, they told us they wanted a "6-can belt cooler," and HomePlates gladly obliged. This is what we created, designed, and manufactured for Blake Shelton's Ole Red brand.
