The Call for Domestic PPE Gown Production

There has been a call for domestic PPE gown production during the Covid-19 pandemic due to US shortages in PPE gowns and shady Chinese factories. The United States and it’s economy needs this call to be heard. We’re answering.

We update our gown chart every morning with cheers.

Since April 1, 2020, The Odee Company has produced 369,000 Level 2 PPE Gowns and will have 1 million produced by end of June. We’re currently producing a number close to 50,000 per day. With another large domestic order of PPE gowns, we could ramp up even more and produce 100,000 per day. This is serious. Other PPE producers who have done this for a living have told us what we have created is impressive and that they were never able to produce these quantities, so quickly,  at our price point. So why are some agencies and states still looking overseas?

Let’s look at the benefits of domestic PPE gown production:
-we’ve created jobs for over 100 positions
-this income goes directly back into the US economy
-freight from China has been reported at 20% of the cost alone
-several companies like us have been a trusted source in the United States manufacturing world (The Odee Company; est. 1923)
-if we’re able to produce PPE Gowns at Chinese prices, why not order state side?

Our domestic PPE gown production is supplying Nursing Homes and hospitals with Level 2 Gowns. We’d like to be sure The VA is taken care of as well. The Department of Defense, The Department of Homeland Security, and The Department of Health and Human Services can all benefit from our gown service. We just need them to know we’re here and hungry to produce for our country.

God Bless the USA!

We’re Making PPE Gowns

Printing has slowed and we have an opportunity to help the front lines and keep our hard working employees by making PPE Gowns.

A local hospital approached us a few weeks back. We supply printed material as well as promotional items for them. They figured, we might be able to source the gowns or perhaps diecut them ourselves. We were supplied with an actual gown and duplicated it with our own features and the hospital said, “Perfect!”. We then started producing and the media got word. We were featured recently on Fox 4 News here in Dallas as well as a visit by Tony Gutierrez of the AP News.

Now we’re producing close to 2,000 a day and doing our absolute best to help those in need.

We’re here for you when it comes to printing and promotional items, and now when it comes to your disposable gown needs.

Why Pens are Still a Favorite Leave Behind

Right on!  Write on!  Click, write, read, message. Pens!

Hi, it’s me, Sarah!

Today I’m shedding light on Odee promotions. It’s pen day!  And yep, we have pens that light up.  I know you have bright ideas and/or words of encouragement….so light it up.  Be the light!

There’s a good reason pens are still a favorite leave behind and an easy one at that. We still have some clients who have ordered the same pens for the past 20 years because their clients crave them.

See that one pointing to The Odee Company?  Wait, they all point to ODEE.  What better way to get your brand in the hands of friends, family, clients than by having your message/contact information on an item that is used every day all day.

Chose a “leave behind” promo item that no one will want to have “leave their hand”. My favorites are shown here.  Don’t see what you had in mind?  Shop our online store and let’s find the WRITE one for you!

We have thousands of pen options.  Find the RIGHT WRITE one for your brand today!


Marketing Storage and Warehousing

Many of our clients express frustration with their “Marketing Closets” and how they wish we could take their marketing storage and warehousing off of their hands. Well, we can. With 45,000 square feet and tri-tower skid racks we have plenty of room for your marketing collateral as well as anything else you’d like us to house for you.  You’d have easy access to grabbing whatever it is you need or we can deliver or ship wherever you’d like as well.

Some common items we store for our clients:
Promotional Items
Print Collateral
Banners and Banner Stands
-Tradeshow Booths
Wearables such as shirts, jackets, & hats

Stop by or give us a call. We’d love to get that overwhelming marketing closet off your back and in our control.

Printing the Panobook

A few months back we were the lucky printer in charge of the Panobook.  Our friends; Studio Neat out of Austin created this gem of a panoramic notebook last year and launched it via KickStarter with great success. To our surprise and delight, they filmed and narrated the process as seen through the eyes of someone outside of The Odee Company. Hopefully after watching you’ll get a better sense of the care our CSR’s, PrePress, Pressmen, Letter Pressmen, and Bindery pour into each job that rolls through our shop.

Take a watch below and let us know what you think…have your CC ready as you’ll probably want to order one of these keepsake journals for yourself.

Benefits of the Panobook:
-unique format designed for your desk
-subtle dot grid
-soft touch feel and highest quality stock
-sweet slipcase

Indoor Print for the Outdoor World

Over the past 2 years The Odee Company has become a big player in the Indoor printing world for the Outdoors world. Many retailers have seeked us out in producing their finish outs, lookbooks, and fulfillment. Recently, the Farm, Land, & Ranch Real Estate firms have hooked up with us in producing the land maps on canvas. One outfit in particular is Venture West Ranches in Montana who sees the canvas as a nice design element to the ranch house.


Buzz Tatom is known as the King of Montana Ranch Real Estate and stumbled across the canvas map idea when his wife; Kathy Tatom of Tatom Design, had told him a land map would actually look great in this one high end ranch home she had just outfitted. Thanks to Kathy, we began producing land map canvases weekly it seemed.

Another Ranch & Land real estate company here in Dallas has been doing the same. Tyler Thomas has given these as gifts. The ranchers can drop pins on the map before they head out for their hunt, while the wives can enjoy the beauty as if it’s art.


Safety, Artistic, and it’s a strong piece to gather around with company and discuss certain areas of the land they’re on.

Custom maps are now being ordered off of our sister site; CanvasKick.

online eye test

Can you beat our online eye test results?

It’s time to do your free online eye test as everyone knows the importance of a good eye or 2 if you’re going to be in the graphic design or print industry. We have used the Farnsworth Munsell 100 Hue Test before. In 2001 I personally scored a 2. Flexed my muscle, dropped the PMS book and walked out of the pressroom. 2 years ago I gave it another run after 13 years of training my eyes on presschecks; scored a 4….not so pleasing, not so bad either.

Eye Test

This morning I decided to give the online eye test another run and see what 15 years of aging training has done. Scored a 0. Perfect. You want me on that critical presscheck. You NEED me on that critical presscheck. Proof below.


What’s your score?

Update 5.12.2020: I just took the test again and came in with a 2. That’s right. A 2. So somehow in 2001 I scored a 2. Aged 15 years and scored a 4. Then 4 years later a 2. What? I think this shows that 1) my eyes are still strong, and 2) the hues are so close that simple mistakes can be made. The results showed that I missed numbers 23 and 24 which are the blue/green region. I’ll look back on this in a year or 2 and see where we are. I’m just glad the online eye test website is still up. Best of luck to all of you and keep us informed on your results!

Wear a helmet when Duck Hunting

5:42pm, I received a text from one of the best shots I know; 2nd to Uncle Jerry “Bubba” Hunt. It’s a video. And it’s the greatest Duck Hunting video under 30 seconds I have ever seen. Wear your helmet when duck hunting.


As The Printer to The Outdoors, we receive a lot of videos and pictures from the field. Some we print as canvases, others we print as high quantity retail catalogs or store signage. We live for the weekends when we can get outdoors and live for the weekdays when we can print for the outdoors industry!
