    Challenge coins. Why? It’s just amazing the variations we’re able to accomplish with coin designs. To take something so small and communicate so much in a small, memorable package.

    Favorite product?
    My favorite custom product is our embroidered patches. That was the first item that our company began producing and it is still a favorite of mine. The threads are beautiful and when merged together into a beautiful design, it is just illuminating! It is art in such a unique form.

    Our shopping totes. Not only do they look good but are far better for the environment since they’re reusable.

    I like all of our metal products. Each was first carefully designed, then translated step-by-step into real products all by professional factories.

    Dog tags. They’re subtle but full of expression.

    Interim Content Manager

    Favorite product?
    Challenge coins. I’m a bit of numatist and coins are fascinating; they can tell an immense story with simply two pages.

    Chinese New Year

    The New Year is as big a holiday for our Chinese employees as Christmas is for our American ones. It’s an excellent excuse to go out for dinner and take in the cuisine, too.

    A Day at the Beach

    The sunny Philippine beaches not far from our Manila offices are an ideal spot for soaking up the sun and a little R&R.

  • Visiting the Factory

We’ve got more than a decade of manufacturing experience under our belt and we’re just getting started. Combining an experienced approach with the innovation of a company that’s brought the custom manufacturing business into the 21st century, The/Studio is poised to shake things up — again.

    • Our First Patch
      Our Story 2006

      Our First Patch

      Back when we were just an embroidery design firm headquartered in a Shenzhen loft, a customer asked us to make one hundred paintball patches. We said we'd see what we could do. An order that size was unimaginably small for the time, and we were laughed or kicked out of a dozen factories. Once we finally succeeded, we decided that this was an experience no one should have to endure. With the goal of a revolutionarily different future for the custom apparel industry, The/Studio was born.

    • Our First Rebrand
      Our Story 2011

      Our First Rebrand

      We've had a few rebrands over the years, but this was the first to really stick. Five years after that first order, we had beaten our way to the top as the world's premier custom patch maker. Far from getting kicked out of factories, we commanded the lowest prices and minimum-order-quantities — setting the industry standard at just one patch. Like our logo suggested, our lamps were always on as more and more orders flowed in.

    • The/Studio Factory Cloud Launched
      Our Story 2014

      The/Studio Factory Cloud Launched

      In 2014, we launched The/Studio Factory Cloud, a sophisticated, in-house interface that brought the customer closer than ever to the factory floor. Factory Cloud connected our customers to the exact same database with which our manufacturers and designers were working, and raised the industry bar for openness during the customer's experience. Our customers were becoming colleagues.

      Our Story 2015

      Thirty-six New Products

      Our Inc. 5000 membership didn't give us an excuse to kick back. We hustled even harder to deliver thirty-six new products that were the same caliber of quality as our legendary patches and powered by the same world-class IT system.

    • The/Studio Democracy Launched
      Our Story 2016

      The/Studio Democracy Launched

      Our Story 2016

      Seventy-two New Products

      With Democracy released, we turned our focus to expanding the breath of products both on that platform to our regular platform. 2016 is truly the year where, for the first time, someone could outfit their entire wardrobe only with The/Studio items. We think it'd be a stylish collection.
