OUR STORYhow it started

In June of 2002, Mark and Tammy Tompkins started USA Advertising out of their home in Azle, TX. Mark worked tirelessly all day, while Tammy worked a day job at Sprint as a customer service representative. After her day job, Tammy used her graphic arts degree to do artwork for customers into the late hours of the night. The whole family was involved in the process at the beginning. Their daughters, ages 9, 11, and 13, helped with packing, shipping, and data entry.

In early 2004, they were able to have enough workforce to move into their own building on Main Street in Azle, TX under the management of Amy Mainord. By 2008 they had opened their office in White Settlement, TX where we are still located today! We have been in business for 19 years and we have been an A+ accredited business with the BBB every year since 2004.

how we make it possible

We have been the industry leader in High School and First Responder shirts since 2004. We take care of everything from beginning to end – as our client all you have to do is choose how you want your shirts to look and we do the rest! Once sponsors are obtained and their custom ad is created we print up the shirts and send them to the school or organization; completely FREE to them!

Free shirts, what’s the catch? There is none. Local businesses make it possible. Their sponsorship money allows for us to complete the entire process at no cost to the school or the organization.

Here at USA, we believe in transparency, and we want you to know exactly what we do and how everything works with no hidden details. We are a for-profit business, but that doesn’t mean we are in business for profit. We carefully balance every penny that comes in to improve the quality of the product and improve the quality of life for all of our employees.
