About SchoolPride®

Our love of Academics, Athletics and Graphics fused to become SchoolPride® in 2000.  Daren Brown, who had been involved in the graphics industry for years, combined with his wife, Janet, and one of his customers, to form a unique company.  SchoolPride® would cater to the needs of Schools, Athletic Directors, Administrators and Athletic Teams to create custom products. 

We grew, from a few employees in a rental space, to our own 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility in 2007.  Our organic growth has resulted in 36 employees in our Columbus, Ohio facility, working every day to fill our niche in the world of schools, teams and athletics.

In 2015, Daren and Janet took on the challenge of making SchoolPride® a family-owned business and have continued to increase sales, product offerings and connections.

Our four project managers, ten graphic designers and three outside sales representatives are driven to make your concept a reality.

Our team comes to work each day with a drive to create exceptional products and solve problems. Whether we are designing an identity for a new high school building, or creating updates for a record board that is already installed in your school, we strive for excellence.


Our Commitment

I founded SchoolPride® eighteen years ago in order to help administrators, coaches and athletic directors honor their programs, athletes and achievements.

Our staff of talented graphic artists are here to help you make your facilities special. We are committed to delivering outstanding products to our customers.
