Allen ColorCraft® 

Celebrating 60 Years of Custom Imprinted Drinkware

Since 1959, Allen ColorCraft has been family owned and operated. Today the Dohan family continues to build on that legacy with 3 members of the family - Allen, Stan and Preston - actively participating in the company managment.

Allen Dohan, CEO, remembers joinging the company in 1973 when there were around a dozen glass and ceramic companies in the promotional products industry. None of those companies operate today.

Being a sole survivor of that era is a large legacy and one the Dohan family is proud to embrace. With a success formula including new products, techniques and processes coupled with strong management teams and dedicated employees, Allen ColorCraft continues to be an industry power.

Stan Dohan, company president, offers these words: "That water bottle you got at the last conference or the travel mug you picked up at the spirit wear shop of your alma mater - we probably decorated that. Our products are for real peple. We docorate useful products because we want people to carry your brands around the world for a healthy, meaningful life. That's where true engagement begins. Reach out today to start connecting with the real people who use your products! And, here's to 60 more years together!"
