Trading Phrases decals are proudly made right here in the USA (Ohio, to be exact)! 

Over the years I've lived in quite a few states- Idaho, North Carolina, Ohio, and Georgia. I have family even more spread out across Massachusetts, New York, Nevada, Washington, Hawaii, Wyoming, Oregon, California, Alaska, and Utah. I have friends in even more states and have visited many of the others. I think you could say that I've been all over the U.S.A.,so I can safely say that Ohio is one of the most "proud" states I've been to. I was a little taken aback when I first moved here and heard of the rioting Buckeyes on game day, saw the overwhelming amount of Ohio shirts, and saw the block O on most vehicles. Living here certainly gives you a feeling of pride...not only for being in Ohio, but for being in the United States.


When my parents started this business almost five years ago, my husband was just entering the Army. If you need a dose of "American", just go live near an Army base for a few years. You see eagles on trucks, flags flying in yards, and "Proud to be American" bumper stickers and t-shirts in every store. It really gave me a sense of pride in our country and the soldiers that fight for us. Fast forward four years. We are back in Ohio, the "heart" of America (so named because of the shape). In Ohio, I definitely see less "country pride", but I am back into "state pride" land. It's the same feeling of honor to live here.


I am honored to be a part of this state, this country, and this company. Sure, I may not like everything that goes on in our country. I wish we could solve the poverty problem, the crime, and all of the other problems, but who doesn't want that? I am just really happy to have been born and raised here, when there are so many other countries out there that don't have the freedoms we take for granted here-freedoms my husband fought for overseas.


I love our country and I am so glad to be working for a company that produces a product that is 100% made in the USA. Our workers come from Ohio and our products are all produced here in shop (cut to order every day, 7 days a week). Our designers are working right here in our office in Ohio and our customer service gal who is taking your calls is sitting in our Ohio office, too! We go to lunch at local joints (we really love Mellow Mushroom), we sometimes have picnics in the park, and we often open the big doors in back and work in the sunshine. We are all American and we are really proud of that.


This blog post isn't to put down other countries or other companies that aren't in the U.S.A.This blog post is simply because Independence Day was last week and I wanted to let you know that we are an all American company, an Ohio company, and we are a family. I think it is important to support your country in any way you can, and while buying from us over a competitor you find in JoAnnes, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, or even online may be a bit more expensive- what you are getting is quality. What you are getting with us is American. You are helping our business, our family, right here in the United States- not a big box store or a Chinese manufacturing plan. I feel that is important, don't you?


As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us Monday-Friday 10am to5pm EST and we'd be happy to help you! We sincerely appreciate your business...from the bottom of our Ohio-shaped heart!

P.S.- Below are some photos of our family!

2 days until my due date! Meeting my husband at airport, coming home from Iraq.



This picture is old (5 years ago), but it is the last family photo we all had together. We need to fix that!
