NW Designs and More is an established,
long term business in the Seattle area that is poised on the precipice
of launching a hugely successful line of sportswear and merchandise.
With over 20 years of business experience and designs that have
already proven to be marketable, there is no limit to what we can
The current business owner, Don Herbert, began working as a partner
in 1995 in Chameleon Graphics. When his partner decided to leave
the industry, Don took over and renamed the business Northwest Designs
and More. The business grew stagnant until 2014 when Don decided
to start selling some original designs on the Seattle waterfront.
Business has increased dramatically since that time. NW Designs
and More now has two sales representatives and has original designs
being sold in 35-40 stores in the Seattle area.
Our primary objective is to become the premier screen print business
for the Seattle area. We plan to do this first by increasing our
presence with established designs on the Seattle waterfront as well
as in local and national chain stores in Seattle and the surrounding
areas. Another long term objective is to have our designs licensed
through the sports teams in the Seattle area and become a vendor
in their merchandising strategy.
Keys to Success
Our keys to success are:
A strong, recognizable brand
Creative, unique designs that become almost instantly popular with
our target audience
Strong business acumen
Established contacts in the Seattle area
A passion for the industry and a desire to succeed
