Debrand Services

Here’s an interesting thought, what happens to branded materials when companies don’t need them anymore? Debrand Services in Vancouver B.C. set out to tackle this problem. Seven years ago Wes Baker was working in experiential marketing. He noticed that lots of branded event materials went to waste post-event. Because they were branded, these items couldn’t be donated. Wes founded Debrand Services to offer corporate businesses an alternative solution.

Candice and Mike Jenness starting making these stunning reclaimed wood hope chests as a way to bridge the financial gap from their day jobs. When their Etsy shop, Looney Bin Trading Company, reached over 300 sales, they were able to make the switch to working full time for themselves.
