About Us

My Name is Adora Paetzel. I own Special By Design on the Hope Town Square.

The business, which opened in 2007, specializes in a wide-variety of products and services.

The retail store has a huge assortment of ready-to-wear items, including t-shirts for all area schools. We sell fleece jackets, polo-style shirts, baby clothes/bibs, athletic workout t-shirt, ball uniforms, and even cheer uniforms. Special By Design also does custom embroidery – everything from baby blankets to Carhartt Jackets, beanie hats to ball caps.

Ask us about our quilted letter jackets –  made custom to fit your wants and needs… usually at no extra charge. You can choose the color, leather sleeves, style of sailor flap, and custom embroidery.

We also do patch applications for letter jackets or bike vests.

Need a light alterations? We even hem pants ans replace zippers!

When it comes to screen printing, we have you covered! We do a lot off custom screen printing for schools, businesses, camps, and more.

If it’s custom vinyl product you are seeking, we handle everything from vinyl stickers to banners to signs. Perhaps you need vinyl lettering or a logo for your business vehicle, we can do it.

Looking for a way to raise money for your group, team, or organization? Ask about our special discount rat fundraising packages.

I have lived in Hope my entire life, and am proud to be a business owner here. Serving my community and being able to ‘give back” when I can is very important to me. Special by Design is committed to providing you the best service at a savings.
