JDS Marketing & Sales was started in a Minnesota garage in October of 1992 by brothers Steve and Jeff Deters. The original concept was to develop a line of wedding party gifts to be sold through men's formal wear rental stores. Their first line consisted of 16 gifts. Shortly thereafter, it became apparent that customers wanted personalized gifts so they began offering free engraving in 1993. Growth was steady. They added new customers and new products at a consistent rate. When the internet took off so did their business. They were lucky to identify the possibilities of the internet and the market for wholesale drop-shipping personalized gifts. JDS is now in their 21st year and feel very fortunate to have come so far and helped so many customers find the perfect personalized gift. They are constantly seeking new and unique personalized gifts to add to their line.
