Sausage Dog Promo Co. is a custom apparel decorator and promotional product distributor located near Windsor, Ontario run by me, Jake! The company is primarily a one-man show but I have some help here and there and may be looking to expand and bring on some team members in the near future!
Hey! I’m Jake and I run Sausage Dog Promo Co. as a one-man operation out of my basement in Harrow, Ontario - Just outside of Windsor, which is just across the Canada/USA border from Detroit. Here’s a bit about me and this company!
I started screen printing when I was in college studying graphic design, I can’t remember the exact year but I’d guess 2013-2014. I started a little screen printing company called Little Mint Productions with a friend that we kept up on a very part time basis throughout college mainly printing shirts for local bands. After I graduated, real life came around, I got a job as a graphic designer and left screen printing in the dust.
Back in summer of 2019 I had a few small opportunities to do some promotional products for some local companies so I started Sausage Dog Promo Co. I started out just doing promotional product distribution but then I found a pretty sweet used screen printing set up for sale and jumped back on the screen printing train.
Since then I have expanded by services to include a wide range of promotional products, custom apparel, headwear, stationery and print materials, and more!
Hopefully over the next few years I can grow Sausage Dog Promo Co. to the point where I can provide other people with jobs, and maybe even move into a larger space! Until then you can find me in my basement, printing cool stuff for you.
That name though…
I know at some point since either hearing about my company or stumbling upon my website you’ve probably been like, what even is that name? Who names a company that? The answer is me. I name my company that.
When I was working in the marketing department at my previous job there were days that I loved it and days that I hated it, while this is not uncommon for most jobs it was getting to a point where the bad days were outweighing the good days. My co-workers felt the same way and we had discussed starting up a little design/marketing agency type thing, one of my co-workers was completely obsessed with Dachshunds like pretty much any Dachshund owner out there, and I am a dog lover of any type so I came up with the name Sausage Dog Design Co. Needless to say that never came to fruition so I decided to modify the name and call this company Sausage Dog Promo Co.
You may also be wondering if I have Dachshunds myself. The answer is no, I do not, and while I love them I probably never will have one, I’m more of a big dog person. Currently I have two dogs, one is a bulldog/masiff mix of some sort, and the other is a shepherd mix of some sort. My dogs are great, I love them, I pet them every day, they sleep in my bed along with my wife, often times my kids and my cat (her name is miss kitty). Dogs don’t get the pleasure of having a typical lifespan of 70-80+ years like we humans do so they should at least get the comfort of sleeping in a bed with people they love and trust!
Well this has certainly become a long-winded and run-on about section to say the least. If you got this far thanks for reading! If you didn’t get this far then thanks for trying! And regardless of if you got this far I hope you have a wicked awesome day and get to pet lots of dogs!
Signed, that guy Jake from the wiener dog shirt company.
