Whut started all of this?

Toby & Renae Karlquist

Renae and I started Whut Marketing in 1998. At that time, we purchased a single head commercial Brother embroidery machine. Over the next 15 years we made a name for ourselves with our custom digitizing and embroidery designs. We won numerous National Awards for our work. We created a custom baseball flag design after 9/11. Curt Schilling wore our design/ballcap during an interview on NBC during the 2001 World Series that the DBacks won.

during the 2001 World Series.

During that timeframe we grew the promotional products side of the business as well. When the economy took a downturn in 2008, we sold our embroidery equipment and concentrated on promotional products and helping our clients promote themselves. We continue to offer promotional products and design logos for clients ranging from small businesses to airlines, schools, Realtors, rock bands and everyone in between.

We could not do all we do without the support of our co-workers. Carib and Cuervo, though no longer physically here with us, were instrumental in the early years. Now it's Kaspurr and Gizmo keeping us in line.
