Company History

Designs by Chad and Jake is a Florida, USA based personalized baby gift company. We began in 1997 with the introduction of personalized burp cloths. A few years earlier, we had received them as a gift when our first son, Chad, was born. We thought they were absolutely terrific! Since we enjoyed them so much, we decided it would be fun to make some of our own. We could personalize them by embroidering the child’s name, and give them to our friends as baby gifts. Little did we know that this would be the start of Designs by Chad and Jake!

Within months, word started to spread and people were calling us to place burp cloth orders. What a surprise! We did not anticipate that so many others would want them as gifts for their own friends’ newborns. One order led to another and shortly after our second son, Jake, was born, Designs by Chad and Jake made its debut. With the personalized burp cloths as our signature item, the very first Chad and Jake catalogue was introduced in the fall of 1997.

In addition to the burp cloths, our catalogue also featured an array of quality "classics” that could be preserved as family heirlooms…durable items of the finest quality that could be enjoyed year after year and passed down from generation to generation. With catalogue requests coming in every day, it was time to start selling our gifts online. In the spring of 1998, Designs by Chad and Jake launched its website.

As our customer-base grew, so did our family. In 2002, baby Madison was born and joined the Chad and Jake team. Today, Designs by Chad and Jake continues to feature the very best and most exciting gifts for babies, kids, and even siblings many of which are exclusive to us. With thousands of customers, we ship gifts to people throughout the world. The unique and beautifully packaged gifts always "wow" the recipients who may be seeing their child's name in print or on product for the very first time. The decorative packaging and quick turn-around time make a present from Chad and Jake exciting to give and to receive!

Not only does Designs by Chad and Jake offer traditional pink and blue baby gifts, we are an Official Licensee of Major League Baseball, Major League Soccer, the National Basketball Association, the National Hockey League, NASCAR, and over thirty collegiate institutions. Sports fans across the world are able to outfit their babies with the highest quality personalized goods on the market.
