About Us


Since 1989, SnugZ has always been committed to providing an exceptional customer experience and producing high quality products for their customers.

 

Humble Beginnings 

Our story begins in 1989 in a small, dusty attic with a crazy idea of producing a line of customizable eyewear retainers. We believed in a strong philosophy that our customers were our first priority - SnugZ USA® was born!

The Timeline

1989 - Our first product: The Cotton Eyewear Retainer! In the beginning of SnugZ, our eyewear retainers were all the rage and what we are known for in the industry.

1991 - We expanded our line of products to include lanyards when a distributor saw one of our sales team in the booth with an eyewear retainer around their neck and asked if we sold lanyards... we immediately said, “We do now!” By 1997 our lanyards were so popular, they were even outselling our eye retainers. In 1999, we introduced our innovative Clam Shell lanyard construction which is now imitated by nearly every lanyard supplier out there!

2007 - Our Personal Care line is a high performance lifestyle line of sun and skin care products with customizable imprints. For active lifestyles, our personal care products have grown to include Lip Balm, Sunscreen, Hand Sanitizer, Lotion, Aloe Vera and Gift Sets!

2012 - We introduced Zen® into our ever growing list of products. Zen, an extension of our personal care line, features an industry first of essential oils and blends. Zen provides the ultimate products for relaxation with an assortment of soap, candles, bath salts, room spray and diffusers.

2016 - Our Traverse® Leather line is the latest addition to SnugZ USA. With every order, the Traverse craftsman starts with raw ingredients: A piece of genuine leather and a brand logo.

From 5 to 500+

SnugZ has continued to grow over the years. Starting out with only 5 people handling all the day-to-day business, the company now employs over 500 employees, all part of the SnugZ Family! With so many awesome employees, obviously we would need somewhere a little bigger than the attic to set up shop! Staying true to our roots, we built our main facility in West Jordan, Utah. USA Made baby!

ZIP-IT®

Even with so many orders coming through everyday, we strive to get our customer’s orders out as fast as possible! Several years ago, we introduced our ZIP-IT® Next Day Service program to keep up with our customer’s demands. Orders are shipped the very next business day at no additional cost.

Vision: Build opportunity for our co-workers, customers and communities.

Mission: Create connections with products and experiences that impress.

Values: Care Passionately. Work like crazy. Think big. Do what's right.

Quality and Customer Care are a big part of what makes SnugZ...well...SnugZ! With decades of hands-on-experience, SnugZ USA’s mission is to generate value for our distributor partners by providing unwavering service and quality promotional products. Our customers can take comfort knowing they’re working with some of the best people and best products in the industry!

What's Next?

SnugZ USA grows more and more each year. With nearly 30 years of experience under our belt, we continue to push the boundaries of what promotional products can be and what we are able to accomplish. We’re always moving forward, only looking back to see how far we’ve come. We aren’t done yet and excited to see where the future takes us!

Meet Our Team

With every screen, every fill, and every stitch we feel that pride of ownership that only comes after years of paying the price. The days and nights of perfecting, and then perfecting again, and finally the realization that we've quietly, steadfastly set the benchmark of our craft. All with one mission: TO MAKE.

Put a friendly face to a familiar name.
