In December 1988, Sue Todd had a simple idea - a high-quality decorative mailbox cover that could be changed seasonally for the holidays.
The concept of MailWraps® magnetic mailbox covers was born, but it wasn't immediately successful. For years, Sue operated the small mail-order operation in the basement of their home. As the volume slowly grew, she hired a neighbor, then her mother, then Curt's mother to help assemble the product. Things really took off in 1999 when the couple began licensing artwork from popular artists. The business moved from their basement in January 2001 into a 3,000 sq. ft. office warehouse.
In January 2007, BreezeArt™ premium decorative flags were introduced. The company's decision to raise the bar on printed flag quality was very well-received by the industry. Flag sales far exceeded the company's initial expectations and the line was quickly expanded to well over 100 collections of coordinated flags, mailbox covers, and yard signs.
Ten years later, they outgrew another building. The company is now in its fifth location in the past ten years, a 50,000 sq. ft. facility. An unprecedented 26 of the company's 43 terrific employees are either relatives or neighbors. Now that's a family business!
