Who We Are
States Made is a full-service merchandise partner for nonprofits, political campaigns and socially conscious businesses.

We create legitimate e-commerce businesses for each of our partners, using best practices for merchandising, marketing, UX and design.
All of the goods we create are USA-made and union printed, so we’re creating good jobs and ethical merch. Our clients are movement-creators, activists and game-changing progressive politicians. We're scaling and adding more in the run up to the 2020 elections. You can check out some of our clients here!
