Citizen Pride renews commitment to making our items in the USA!

BIG NEWS! It’s not always the easiest and certainly not the cheapest option for a small company such as ours, but we made the commitment to continue making our items in the USA! We had the opportunity to tour a new facility in High Point, North Carolina, and will now be able to offer you more beautiful and improved quality flags and doormats … Made by wonderful, hardworking Americans.

Joe Barsin

Illustrations by Joe Barsin are special because he combines a passion for history, culture and community with a deep seeded pride in America. Living abroad in Europe during his formative years developed his understanding of an artist’s role in defining a community’s culture and history. Being an Eagle Scout developed his sense of community, patriotism and appreciation for the natural world. Joe is a native of Akron, Ohio, who graduated from Kent State University with a degree in graphic design. He and his wife, Eva, started their own design firm, JEB Design, Inc., in 1998, and continue to work from home while raising their two boys.
