At the same time as the CD ROM sleeves were growing, Vinyl Art continued to expand its specialty products capability. Products grew from 300 in 1987 to over 2,000 in less than ten years. The company was involved with the Beannie Baby phenomena during the mid 1990‘s, making over 190 million vinyl covers for the heart shaped tags for the collector realm. Another popular product during this time frame were vinyl lottery ticket holders. Vinyl Art was one of the first to offer holders to the different State-run lottery games.
During the latter part of the 1990’s Vinyl Art added the capability to manufacture products from polypropylene as well. Products began with the continued CD ROM packaging and moved into the manufacture of vinyl photo pages and pockets for the safe keeping of family photos. Scrap booking was another area that Vinyl Art produced pages and pockets that were used in the storage of the photos.
Vinyl Art Inc. is also a provider to many bait shops and sporting goods stores. Vinyl fishing and hunting license holders that are decorated with the logos of the bait shops and sporting establishments have always been popular. Their ability to provide high quality vinyl holders in a variety of colors allowed businesses to showcase their brand and create loyalty with their customers. This ability to decorate with foil stamping and silk screen printing has been utilized for many different promotional items to this day.

Like most companies at the time, the pandemic in the 2020-2021 period found our leadership pondering the future of Vinyl Art. As a company, we wanted to help, and we figured out how when an employee heard about another local company making face masks on a Minnesota news radio station. We pivoted at that moment to figure out how to make them. Within a month we began production while also adding creative packaging to sell these at the point-of-purchase in retail stores. Also, as a company, we wanted to support our local hometown and chose to donate face masks to hospitals and nursing homes as well during this time.
Today we are incorporating products that are in retail-ready packaging to broaden the opportunities for customers for their display and save time in the supply chain system. We are working to lessen the environmental impact of our products by developing more Eco friendly sustainable materials and products.
We continue to review and evaluate new ideas in production methods, automation and material advances. We have adapted our operational methods and procedures to work to ensure we are able to meet our customers’ needs without interruption.
We look forward to helping you!
