Made in North America

How important is it that the products we purchase are made in America? In general, I purchase products produced by American Manufacturers, recognizing that if we don’t support our manufacturers we all suffer. I am also proud to work for an American manufacturing company.

An ABC news article on Made in America Christmas, as well as an email forwarded to me, prompted me to investigate the origins of Creative Memories products further. As a result of my investigation, I am happy to report that our Calendars and custom cover photo books are entirely manufactured in the United States. Even the spiral binding to the calendar is manufactured in the U.S.

Currently, ABC does not include Creative Memories in its list of Minnesota manufacturers. Feel free to use this link to submit them. I did.
