Events By Idea is proud to be family-owned and operated! Our company is headquartered in Newport, Oregon, and we operate in several markets throughout the U.S.

Our Birth

We are an extension of our parent co., Idea Print Works. Idea Print Works was founded 1979 in Newport. It is a reputable company, as the owners and operators have remained true to their roots by supporting local communities and providing exceptional services. Idea Print Works primarily specializes in silk screening and embroidery.

Idea saw a need to expand into a market overwhelmed by subpar and mediocre vendor experience.

Over the years, Events By Idea has created lasting memories for thousands of families and has built many relationships with clients. It is our mission to embellish the customers’ experience and eliminate the hassle of pre-ordering merchandise.

How Do We Do This?

It’s simple. We listen to you! We understand your needs and through our expertise, the needs of your customers.

How Can You Help?

We encourage all feedback! We continuously work on upholding high service standards and our improving customers’ experience and satisfaction; therefore, your voice matters! Please send suggestions or feedback to email@eventsbyidea.com

Ways we make you more money: Raffles & Merchandise

  • We will either raffle off our display merchandise at the end of the event or donate a few items out of our store to generate more excitement of our awesome gear. This is also a great way to make up to $500 in additional revenue.

  • Once you book an event through Idea, we will automatically give you a cash credit of up to $500 towards your next silk screening or embroidery order.

Bottom Line:
