How it started…
Our business began with one product … an eco-smart pop-up inflatable punching bag with custom-print stretch fabric ‘skin’. We call it Bonk Fit; everyone calls it awesome. We outsourced manufacturing to focus on sales. We received a call to produce custom inflatables for the 20th Century Fox movie premier of Ferdinand the Bull. Then, we were asked to produce custom inflatables for Captain Morgan as part of a nationwide bar crawl promotion. We saw our future as an innovator of soft signage and graphics!
We invested in our own production facility. And, now bFIVE40 is home to the latest dye sublimation and latex printing technology, a custom fabrication shop, sewing operation, and an extensive library of speciality inks and innovative materials, including REPREVE recycled polyester, stretch fabrics, and PVC-free cling film.
My name is Donna Brin, owner of bFIVE40. I approach business as I do life, with purpose and empowerment. Being deliberate about supporting women-owned business puts real power behind action. Even if you’re not a woman, it’s not difficult to see the importance of supporting people who do good, regardless of gender, so this world is shaped in a way that all people may contribute.
Our company name is a nod to the raw power of three-dimensionality. We believe that with depth we ‘see’ the world differently. 360 degrees is a perfectly flat 2-D circle. At 540 degrees, an object breaks the plane and is 3-D adding depth perception. bFIVE50 is changing the way people ‘see’ brands.
Located in South Carolina, bFIVE40 is the Southeast’s premier designer and innovator of sustainable signage and custom products for modern brands.
