While some may call it a Hot Girl Summer, we're ready to call it a Boss Babe Summer too. In the season of outdoor markets, pop ups, and a buzz of online sales, we know you need to make the most of your money. We've listed our top services that you can mark up and resell either to wholesale or direct to customers.
1. Enamel Pins
Average price per unit: $1.00-$3.00 Suggested retail price: $10-$12
Nothing is cooler than seeing your design or logo in enamel pin form (besides maybe randomly meeting Keanu Reeves?). Enamel pins are also durable and because they're meant to be worn, you get a lot of marketing value out of them. We offer so many fun extras to help make custom enamel pins one-of-a-kind -- glitter, glow in the dark, chains, and personalized backings are all at your fingertips!
Give custom enamel pins a go, order them in a variety of sizes and finishes and let's keep that #pingamestrong!
2. Embroidered Patches
Average price per unit: $1.50-$3.50 Suggested retail price: $10-$13
In the same way that enamel pins are made to be worn by your customers, the same is true for custom embroidered patches. Utilize up to 9 different colors in your patch design, we have an endless array of thread colors to choose from to best match your killer designs. All custom patches come with an iron-on backing for easy application to bags and apparel.
All premium custom patches are quoted via our online form.
3. Art Prints
Average price per unit: $2.00 - $4.75 Suggested retail price: $20 - $30
If you're an artist of any medium, our custom art prints are a perfect way to resell your designs in a cost-effective way.

All custom art prints are printed on a beautiful, textured stock making each print truly one of a kind.

Foil printing is one of our most popular services for business cards and postcards. With so many colors and add-ons available, it's a great way to add some creative flair to your branding (and hellooooo did you see our new colors?). But also, what the heck are we talking about when we say we need separate foil files?
We know not everyone is a graphic designer, and sometimes setting up files for printing can be super confusing. This quick guide creates a visual for setting up files for foil printing properly.
Depending on how many sides you want your foil to print, we will either need 3 files, or 4 files: one file for both your front and back, and a file that notes what you want foil stamped.
Make sure the elements you want foil stamped are taken out of your front and back files completely. These need to be on separate files, and in 100% K (black).
Upload or email your files as hi-res PDFs, and the end result will be beautiful, premium quality foil stamped cards. We went with the holographic for ours!
If you need help with set up, our team is always willing to help. Email us with your request and our design team will work with you on getting the elements you need to create stellar cards.
When we first introduced holographic sticker printing over a year ago, we knew that our clients would love it. For months, we looked and tested for the right vinyl that would be high-quality, vibrant, and affordable. Shortly after our launch, we introduced it to the masses and we've been shipping thousands and thousands of custom holographic stickers across the world ever since!
Holographic stickers are such a fun way to market your brand, band, or business. These rainbow reflective stickers change vibrancy in different light and will make your designs unforgettable (and isn't that what we all want anyway?). Full CMYK printing is available, and we even have the capability of printing white.
We also offer holographic printing on roll labels or sticker sheets, perfect for your packaging needs. All vinyl stickers are printed on a 6mil premium vinyl (that's twice as thick as other online retailers!) and coated with a UV gloss that will protect the sticker from standard elements for 3-5 years.
In late February of 2018 I left my job of nearly 7 years. I had a routine, knew what to expect every single day, it was easy. I could do it with my eyes closed. But that was the problem. I wasn't being challenged. I was bored. On top of that, I wasn't appreciated and I wasn't being paid fairly. It took a long time, but I was finally able to see that I have value, and if I'm not being valued where I am, I will go somewhere else. So, with very little planning and very little money, I decided to start Tower Press. I didn't do it alone though.
Leela of Native Bear was imperative to those first few months, agreeing to help front a website template and first month's rent at our current location in Georgia. Her initial investment allowed me to take a big leap of faith. I am not kidding when I say I had NO backup plan. I probably only had a few hundred dollars in my bank account. But, I trusted myself and I trusted in my abilities. Going from knowing what to expect all the time to NEVER knowing what to expect any of the time was very, very scary for this Type-A individual.
But, here we are! We did it! We crossed the threshold to the one-year mark, and that's huge! And I didn't do that alone either. That is all Y'ALL! 327 clients spread across 4 different countries. I am grateful for each and every one of you who choose to work with us. Tower Press has really turned into a wonderful community of badass go-getters that I am inspired by every day. We've definitely had to change a little and adapt along the way, but I love this baby business, our commitment to putting the client first, and always offering the most creative services we can.
I don't always have "it" together. Nearly every day I am learning something new about being a businesswoman and better human. There are days I have big cries at my desk and days where I feel like we're on top of the world. I'm thankful for every teaching moment this business has given me, and can't wait for the next 365+ days. I have a lot of BIG goals for us, see you along the way!

We're firm believers that your business card is EVERYTHING (and not just because we print and design them).

One stellar business card could change the trajectory of your business!
Make an impression with raised foil printing! This process creates a raised, thick embossing available in gold, silver, or the ever-popular rainbow holographic.
