Where brands can be their best.

We’re so much more than branded swag. And creative design. And great service. We may be a small shop, but we have big talent—and even bigger dreams. And we help companies like us dream big, too. Then, we make it all happen.

Quality from the start.

Our journey began in 2019 at our hometown’s annual summer event, Camas Days. Three moms set up a pop-up tent and set out to solve a problem facing the families of Camas, Washington: quality spirit wear. With six t-shirts, a few hoodies, and a couple of stickers, Papermaker Pride, now a sister company to MakerOne, was born.

From baseball hats to building brands.

Soon, we moved into our first brick-and-mortar in downtown Camas, which gave us our first real presence in the community and allowed us to further develop our relationships with sports fans, local businesses, and the school district.  

In 2020, we expanded again to our newly renovated Papermaker Pride in a prime downtown retail location. This snazzy new space was designed to better serve our customers with even larger apparel collections. It also enabled us to launch our wholesale division, MakerOne Custom, helping our customers order custom apparel for their business, family, or organization.

Although we’ve grown since our first appearance at Camas Days 2019, we haven’t forgotten our grassroots as an inspired small business focusing on one thing, quality.

The people who make it possible.

Kaiwi is a proud new father, and a self-described “lucky husband.” Around the office, he’s affectionately known as the Flyin' Hawaiian.

A big fitness fan and self-professed shopaholic, Kara is most importantly the proud dog mom of the most perfect German Shorthaired Pointer in the world.

Beyond the office, Kris splits time watching her boys play college football and baseball and relaxing at her family’s home in Arizona. And going to the gym. And walking her dog, Tazzy.

Shannon Chilian
Purchasing Agent

When she’s not working with customers, Shannon can be found curled up with a good crime novel or binging crime dramas. She also enjoys traveling with her husband to see their three grown boys.

Julie Criddle

Julie loves to travel. So much so that she works for Alaska Airlines in her spare time. Her favorite travel buddies are her husband and three boys.
