|MOTORCYCLE COASTERS® SUPPLY CHAIN STATEMENT
Motorcycle Coasters® are made in the U.S.A. To some businesses that buy our product, this is an important aspect. They prefer to buy products made in the United States and some specifically will not buy anything made in China. Even if it were not for our customers’ preference of American made vs. Chinese made side stand supports, we would still manufacture them here in the United States. We feel it is important to help keep people employed here, and have no intention of supporting an economy half a world away. Because of that, and because we choose to maintain the utmost quality control over our product, Motorcycle Coasters® are now and always will be made entirely in America, from the raw materials to the finished, printed product, and even the boxes we ship them in to customers.

|Motorcycle Coasters®: History of an American product
In 1994, Crown Advertising (CrownAdv.com)
began promoting a motorcycle side stand support as part of the
company’s ad products line, which focused on serving the
The original side stand support was called the Sure Stand.
It was simply a round, very durable plastic disc, meant
to be custom printed.
The product was a hit, and sales were good.
But, something started happening.
When customers called to order the Sure Stand, they would
refer to the product as a “motorcycle coaster” or simply a
“coaster.” Even though
Crown Advertising was diligent at marketing the Sure Stand brand
name, the public simply did not agree with what the product
should be called. Perhaps
owing to the Sure Stand’s round shape, the product’s nickname
“motorcycle coaster” was a phenomenon that was catching on with
the company’s customers.
By 1999, two things were being considered regarding the Sure
Stand: brand name and product design (shape).
It was decided, to mark the beginning of the new
millennium, that important changes would be implemented.
The owner of Crown Advertising, Jack Briere, had become known as
“Jack the Coaster Guy” while selling “motorcycle coasters,”
despite his reluctance to accept the product’s nickname and his
nickname that came along with it.
In 2000, after six years of trying to convince customers
to call the printed motorcycle side stand support by the brand
name Sure Stand, Jack the Coaster Guy (he still uses the
nickname today) decided to go along with the tide of public
opinion and officially renamed it the Motorcycle Coaster®.
The other major change to the Sure Stand was its shape.
Jack wanted something to make the Motorcycle Coaster®
stand out…something other than the “plain, ordinary circle.”
And, the idea of the decagon (ten-sided) shape was born.
Jack felt the decagon would make the Motorcycle Coaster®
distinctive. He was
right. Over the years,
the decagon shape has indeed become a recognizable element of
the Motorcycle Coaster®.
With the new changes in place, also in 2000 a logo was created
and the websites
MotorcycleCoasters.com were launched, and a whole division
unto itself began at Crown Advertising.
Today, 23 years after the introduction of Motorcycle Coasters®, they are shipped all over the world to a vast variety of businesses, and the brand name is stronger than ever.
