Tack Designs, a custom screen printing and embroidery services company, was born from the desire of the owner and his wife to adopt internationally. Todd and Aimee Fannin, youth pastors at the time, felt a calling to adopt. The family needed help with the funds, so Todd started designing for other youth pastors. Not too long after joining efforts with a local screen printer, Todd and Aimee had raised enough money to adopt their first child from China. Fast forward a few years later, and they have adopted their second from China. They now have two biological and two adopted children. The name for the company was actually formed from the first letters of the biological family's names: Todd, Aimee, Colter and Kennedy. Adoption continues to be a large part of who Tack Designs is as a company. Every year, Tack Designs is able to donate a portion of money to adopting families or adoption organizations.

The company now has three locations throughout the state of Oklahoma: Pryor, Edmond and Shawnee. Based out of Pryor, this location is responsible for all screen printing production. The Shawnee location, located next to Oklahoma Baptist University, is responsible for the embroidery production as well as taking custom orders. The Edmond location is a central hub for custom orders and pick-ups.

The Fannins chose to open a Tack Designs location at 100 N. Broadway in Downtown Edmond because they love establishing locations in downtown settings and felt there was a lot to love about Edmond's downtown area. Edmond also offers businesses great support through the Edmond Economic Development Authority, the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce and the community at large.

Tack Designs loves serving small groups and other companies with low runs of product. However, moving forward, it is the company's goal to begin relationships with other screen printers or nation-wide companies who need contract printing. This usually means larger quantities at lower pricing. By increasing production capabilities, it will be easier to print large orders with a quicker turnaround time.

Early in 2015, Tack Designs completed construction of a brand new 10,000-square-foot production facility in Pryor. Located in an industrial park, the new facility is able to hold several more presses, which will speed up production and also make it possible to complete much larger orders.

Whichever Tack Designs location customers choose to visit, they will always receive great customer service, excellent product and a family ready to serve them.
