Our History

Who knew that in 1988, the Doodle Mug, a write on, wipe off message mug would be a hit, launching Two Crazy Ladies (TCL) into the promotional products industry. Founded by Melanie and Kim Sibbitt, they started the business selling just 1 unique item and today offer millions of different products for all your marketing needs.
