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. We offer a paper stock that is both eco-friendly and premium quality, and in two different colors (white and natural). Choose from a variety of sizes, and most orders ship same day or next day. All custom art prints are printed on a beautiful, textured stock making each print truly one of a kind.
Average price per unit: $.70 - $1.40 Suggested retail price: $2 - $4
As an added bonus, we do not charge extra for custom die cut shapes!
5. Tote Bags

Screen printed tote bags (also known as reusable grocery bags) are another great item you can have made with Tower Press and resell to your customer base.

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!

One of the many perks of building Tower Press is the amazing women we get to work with on a daily basis. Having the honor of creating your branding, merchandise, or just printing some business cards for you is a total dream! This community of badass women is the whole reason why we exist.
Recently, we worked on a project with Dough, a website directory of women-owned businesses. From founders Anna and Vanessa,
"Our mission is to drive purchase power and awareness towards women owned businesses in order to create economic equality. When women rise, we all do. Our vision is to build an inclusive movement, representing all fempreneurs, their stories, and the brands they’ve built in order to create a society where women are equally represented in the boardroom, c-suite, and beyond. "
For this particular project, we worked on 100 screen printed tote bags, designed by Irene Limb. The Dough logo and tag line was screen printed on a 100% cotton / natural tote, which is our most popular option. We also worked on a set of enamel pins, designed by Lyndsey WhosLastNameWeDontKnow, split into three different color-ways. If your design stays the same, you can switch out the colors at no additional charge for pins. We can also do this for screen printing (though there is a small ink change fee in that case).
We also printed pin backing cards. This project came together so beautifully, and it was fun to work with other creative women on bringing their vision and web store to life. After all, that's all we wanna do!

Sometimes seeing is believing. So many of our clients are out-of-state and unable to stop by our Atlanta Printing Studio to see our quality up and close and personal. Sure, everyone can say their product is amazing but how can you be sure?
We put together a sample pack that includes a dozen (sometimes more) examples of our most popular services -- sticker stocks, business card stocks, postcards, art prints, even enamel pins. You'll find our famous holographic and foil examples too!
All Tower Press Sample Packs are $5, and proceeds go to the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and aims to seek justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Shipping is free!
We were so thrilled to be able to work on some spacesuit decals for Ryan Gosling's (!!) new film,First Man(directed by Oscar Winner Damien Chazelle).
Though we have worked with several television series (Stranger Things, Insatiable, Cobra Kai), this is the first movie credit under our belts! The TV and Film Industry certainly has found its home here in Georgie, and we're always honored to work with so many amazing production houses to help make the magic happen.
We're always open to custom and one-off projects (if we're able to do them), so don't hesitate tocontact usif you need decals, patches, signage, etc for your big or little production!
It's hot out there and you're busy making things happen. We get it! We have absolutely loved servicing businesses big and small so far this year. From the roster cards we print for the WNBA to the enamel pins we make for an illustrator's side hustle, to those fancy affoil business cards for the startup -- we've been doing the most to help you get things done. Now that we're at the mid-point of 2018, that's cause to celebrate, right?
