 About Us

Blanket Dude was started in 2002 by Dan & Marie Noeth of Morton Illinois. Their intention was to work the business part-time to generate additional income to pay for their kids’ college tuition. They primarily sold custom blankets for sports teams, weddings, family reunions, business logos, schools, churches, firehouses, and fundraising events. They also designed and licensed their own stock products including blankets for fraternities and sororities. After several years of manufacturing, they sold that part of the business to a large mill to keep the business small enough to return to a part-time basis. From 2002-2014 the Blanket Dude website was an informational website only… no shopping cart, no products to order except for on ebay. After 12-years in business and both kids through college, Dan & Marie decided they were going to sell the business and retire.

In 2014, Nathan Davis, nephew of Dan & Marie Noeth, acquired Blanket Dude as a complimentary business to his e-commerce company All Cool Things NOW, LLC (ACT NOW). ACT NOW primarily sold fraternity and sorority products as well as liquidated overstock but has expanded into sporting goods, fitness and sports equipment, electronics, novelty items, and so much more. Nathan has expanded the operations of Blanket Dude to new heights. Blanket Dude moved from a spare room in the Noeth home to a 2,300 sq ft warehouse in St. Louis, Missouri. Blanket Dude has one full-time staff member and 3-part time employees.  Our new website has an integrated shopping cart and secure checkout. We work with five Mills here in the USA for woven products and about two dozen vendors for greek and Masonic Order products.  We offer over 5,000 products and carry about 400 of the most popular products in stock.  The items we do carry in stock ship within 24 hours.  Others are made to order.  

Our prices are competitive.  We offer huge discounts on large quantities of custom throws (that tradition continues). We offer more options of custom woven products than before along with different sizes (such as 3 sizes of custom blankets, pillows, totes, purses, wall tapestries, place mats, and some dye-sublimed fleece blankets and towels). Also, Blanket Dude now manufactures and sells its own specialty product lines in addition to all the other products.

All woven products are made from 100% soft USA grown and spun cotton. They are manufactured in the USA by US citizens, and the mills owners live in the USA. Each product is washed and hand finished for uniqueness, ensuring quality. This is a rare business model these days, but we feel it’s very honorable and important.

Blanket Dude has experienced many changes over the course of the last year, but not everything is changing. We can’t improve perfection. “We sell high quality products at low prices and we never disappoint a customer. These are the principles our company is founded. They’re simple, but our customers love them.” We carry the same values and culture that the previous Blanket Dude shared with his customers. We stand by our customers insuring quality and satisfaction.
