More and more Americans are supporting “Made in the USA” Products.

A little history… Today, whenever there is a political campaign, we picture bumper stickers, metal campaign buttons, yard signs, caps, and banners throughout our hometowns. Are they Made in the USA or overseas? Probably a little of both.
But, did you know that promotional products in the USA originally started a long time ago! 1789, to be exact!

At that time the US Flag looked like this:

The first promotional product was a commemorative button made for George Washington’s inauguration. Only military officers wore the brass buttons to show their support for the election of George Washington. These brass buttons were mainly for the elite costing up to 6 months’ salary. Recently, some of these buttons were found in New Jersey and are known to have set the precedent for future political campaigns!
