I Heart Guts is the brainchild of an anatomically obsessed illustrator who loves internal organs and all they do. Founded in 2005, our little family operation (heh, heh, heh..ugh) strives to offer the best in stoopid slogans paired with happy gloppy guts.

Punch Brand started producing anime inspired fleece hats known as “crazyheads” in early 2005.

Sweet Meats are the brainchild of Lauren Venell (nee Fleischer), a San Francisco product designer with butchers on both sides of her family.

PatchTogether is a community that tries to promote a collaborative spirit among its members to inspire and motivate. We are true believers in the wisdom of crowds, and the power of us is greater than the power of one. We want to keep everyone involved with the whole toy making progress by encouraging participation in every step of the production. As toy fanatics at heart, we have seen so many cool concept arts over the years that have sadly never been made into actual toys because of financial restraints and difficulties in locating a reputable factory.
Strangekiss has been in development in one form or another for as long we can remember. This project has evolved into an online art / toy gallery for collectors and enthusiasts such as ourselves. The main mission of Strangekiss is to bring “Art back into Art”. We strive for diversity and want to push limits of the Status Quo as a forever-growing and changing entity. Strangekiss should first and foremost be considered an online gallery more than a store, as that is the vibe we want to impart upon our visitors and growing list of private collectors.
Badge Bomb is excited that buttons are blowing up. Everywhere we go, at shows, on the bus, even walking down the block, buttons cover bags, jackets, and virtually anything able to handle the prick of a pin. And the best part is, this new era in button design thinks beyond political slogans and band names – buttons are a new breed of canvas, providing artists and designers with a fresh medium, one that their fans can wear.
