About Face Designs

Since 1998 About Face Designs™ has come to be known as an industry leader in sentiment gifts focusing on product formats such as plaques, figurines, mugs and other special keepsakes.  Over the past few years we have seen a shift in the marketplace to more women’s boutiques, accessory stores and traditional gift stores carrying apparel and “lifestyle” gift items.  Product offerings in the gift industry have expanded to include jewelry, clothing, women’s accessories, kitchen products, pet items, baby product and more.  In keeping with this change About Face Designs has added significantly to our product offering in 2014.

New in January we introduced our Sunnyside Up® Baby Collection including onesies, baby socks, piggy banks, mugs and wood plaques which have all been an immediate success!  There will be many new baby items for mid-year as well as adorable new Sunnyside Up pet items, new women’s accessories, car fresheners and much more!  In the highly successful new Wanderlust® line there will be a large product expansion including pillows and several women’s accessory categories including phone wallets, cosmetic bags and zip I.D. pouches.  Expansion in Posy™ will include women’s tank tops, coasters, pillows as well as women’s accessories!

And last but certainly not least, About Face Designs is very excited about our new trendy impulse bell line that is sure to be all the “craze” in the coming months!  Two styles of bells are available including traditional handle bells and key ring bells.  True to About Face Designs’™ sentiment gift roots each bell has a fun saying such as “Ring for Beer”, “Ring for Chocolate’, “Ring for Remote’ which will be great gifts as well as the hit of the party!
