Coastal Business Supplies first emerged in 1990 as a distribution company, offering supplies to the quick print market and many of the 55,000 printers and copy shops in the United States.

The market quickly evolved with the introduction of desktop publishing and color print solutions being purchased by more and more offices and homes. Coastal evolved with the times and has grown to be a premier distributor for a variety of printing and personalization markets, including sublimation, heat transfer paper, heat transfer vinyl and direct-to-garment.

Headquartered in St. Louis, Mo., Coastal prides itself on having one of the most robust and expansive product selections in the personalization industry. They are also well known for their dedication to providing education and support to individuals and businesses of all shapes, sizes and levels of experience.

“From hobbyists and small shops to large corporations, Coastal has the knowledge, expertise and products to help our customers grow and prosper,” emphasized Jim Tenholder, Dealer Sales Manager. “We house a dedicated team of product specialists and customer success representatives who understand our products and services inside and out. They work tirelessly to ensure our customers are equipped with the tools they need to succeed. But above all else, we’re committed to treating our customers like family, and we enjoy getting to know them on a personal level.”

Coastal Business Supplies recently underwent its first major rebrand, refocusing the entire company’s culture on its business mission to provide an empowering, fun and educational spirit. Coastal’s new tagline, “Personalize your Profession” and every other aspect of the brand – from its bright, fun colors to its clean, new website design – reflects this new energy.


“We believe no customer is the same, and we are here to provide the personalized attention our customers need to thrive in the personalization industry."

“We believe no customer is the same, and we are here to provide the personalized attention our customers need to thrive in the personalization industry,” stated Tenholder. “We could not be more excited about the rebrand, and we are confident that our new branding better conveys the commitment and compassion you can always find at Coastal.”
