I always had this vision that I wanted to start my own business but I didn’t have a clue of what it would look like. The problem was that I felt comfortable in my career and was in a sense running that business for the owner. It was a service based business and I really had a huge desire to sell products, but I didn’t know what to sell.
Finally that day came when I was looking for a gift for my dad. I couldn’t find a funny golf towel. Everything on the shelves were just plain, boring towels. They were a single color with a company logo embroidered on them. Nothing that would make you or your golf partners laugh. That’s when I started looking around trying to find a funny golf towel, and guess what? I couldn’t find one.
I tried hiring a manufacturer overseas to help me with my dilemma, but to my surprise none of them wanted to create the first prototype. So I gathered together all of my savings and bought my first printing machine. In fact I still use the same 44” wide machine today. I had no clue if this would work, but I was willing to give it a try.
The first prototypes off of my printer looked amazing, and that was the moment I knew I needed to get these towels to market right away. As with any startup business, there were ups and downs. In the first few years there weren’t many ups, but mainly downs.
I know I have been talking about golf towels this whole time. Well they didn’t sell well and I ended up pivoting the business into the products we currently carry today. In the end I have a passion for producing vibrant, colorful microfiber products that our customers will enjoy and show off to their friends.
Today, we continue to produce all of our products in house and don’t use any overseas printing services. Our goal is to provide our customers with true, honest service that will not be matched by anyone else.
