We are a manufacturing and logistics company that spawned from our digitizing skills learned from embroidering logos at Ignition Drawing. We realized the biggest bottle neck in embroidery factories is getting artwork digitized, sampled and approved with great looking embroidery. We love the challenge of conquering the nitty gritty details that go into art approvals, managing subcontractors, worldwide communications, shipping logistics and building complex software systems. Medals and pins has a lot of similar challenges that we enjoy solving. We own and operate two factories in China and have 50 people in our Seattle office that are all dedicated to doing a better job every day at pleasing our growing customers base.
