“When my brother and I started working together in 1982, it was based on one idea,” explains CEO, Mike Bowen. “We wanted to bring integrity to the screen printing and embroidery industry. We were two young kids who wanted to be the best. To do that, we had to have the best artist. We went out and paid our first real artist more than we paid ourselves. We gave him the best tools and equipment. You know what? It worked! We could go tell the customer we could do the impossible and our artist and prep manager would make it happen. Today, we have 3 full time artists with various expertise. They are simply the best in the business.” Champion’s artists are skilled in graphic design, illustration, character design, event merchandising, identity design for print and apparel products.

Champion started the original Awards division 40 years ago with $2,000 in a small barn off Germantown Rd. From this start we slowly established our brand of quality products and customer oriented service. Before long Champion Awards picked up some large clients, including FedEx. Today we are a large multi-division ‘creative products for business’ organization. However, we have not forgotten from where we came and how we got here. Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied with your Champion products and experience, starting with the Awards.
We specialize in laser engraved gifts, plaques, trophies and Corporate Recognition Programs. The Awards department has produced a wide variety of awards over the years, from simple plaques to completely custom awards.
