The Odyssey first opened in November 1974 as a small gift and novelty store in downtown Bedford Ohio. In 1978 we expanded to Aurora, and in 1980 opened our 3rd store in Kent Ohio. As the Aurora store continued to expand, we decided to close both the Kent store, and our original location in Bedford.
In 1986 we purchased Aurora Screenprinting and became Odyssey Printwear while still maintaining a gift and novelty store. Over the years Odyssey Printwear continued to expand, and now we are proud to have been named one of the top 100 screen printers in the country, by the national trade publication Impressions Magazine, every year since 2000! This distinction has enable us to continue to grow and develop a client list that includes Paramount Pictures, Abercrombie & Fitch, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns, Cleveland Cavaliers, and many Fortune 500 Companies.
Although we work with some of the largest companies in the area, we are still committed to the many smaller companies that we have worked with since our beginning.
In addition to screen printing we are also a distributor of imprinted promotional products such as awards, golf items, banners towels, coffee mugs and thousands of additional items.
Unique and innovative advertising specialties always have a big impact on the recipient. From inexpensive mailing inserts and leave behind products, to more elegant executive gifts, we can help you create a truly unique keepsake that will get your companies name noticed. This service is perfect for adding a special touch to sales calls, trade shows, and seminars, company picnics, employee incentives, or new product introductions.
Along with the many services provided for our customers we still sustain a gift and novelty store, located across from Geauga Lake Park and Wild Water Kingdom. We have become well known for our extensive selection of Halloween merchandise including costumes, masks, wigs, decorations and more. Our Halloween merchandise is available year round.
