It began the way a lot of great ideas begin, with a flash of pure inspiration. In 1977 a local sports extremist from Jackson Hole, Wyoming, came up with an idea for an eyewear retainer that would grip his shades through all kinds of adventures. Using an old wetsuit, some sharp scissors, and good old American ingenuity, he made the first pair of Croakies. They were light, comfortable, and best of all, they really worked. Today we are still in Jackson Hole, but we’ve come a long way from the scissors and wetsuit. The inspiration remains the same, however our aim is now to develop eyewear retainers and accessories created for the promotional products industry. Corporations, schools, national organizations, benefit foundations, and local businesses utilize these products for sales aides, trade shows, marathons, reunions and special events. Our goal is to provide sales and marketing solutions to you and your clients. Through a great deal of hard work and dedication, Croakies has earned a reputation as one of the top suppliers in the industry. It is a privilege to serve you.
