We are Windswept Marketing

A grassroots startup focused on organic growth with low overhead

Windswept Marketing has a 50-year heritage in the embroidered emblem business. They started as a small grassroots company selling embroidered emblems, lapel pins, lanyards, and key fobs. Brian Fuchs, president, recognized the limitations of direct embroidery and invented a solution called Indirect Embroidery ™ (IE) while he was with a former company. It’s a process that dramatically improves the look and feel of placing logos on branded apparel.

The company spent a significant amount of time perfecting the process and turning it into a company trade secret. Then they took it to market and are now offering this proprietary process to customers nationwide.
Joy Fuchs, Brian’s wife, became majority owner and COO during the time the company was perfecting IE, creating an official Woman Owned Business. Joy’s energy, wisdom, and enthusiasm continue to be an invaluable asset to the business.

Today Windswept partners with distributors as a contract decorator for the IE process. They also supply hardline items such as emblems, Peel-N-Stick Embroidery™, key fobs, and more.
Windswept now offers a licensing program with Indirect Embroidery ™ that allows clients to use this proprietary technology in their own location.
