What's our Story?

Lasting Impressions of Nashville was founded in 1989 by Marty "Catfish" Ellis.  The Company started with his love for music and a dream to provide concert tour merchandise to fans thru merchandising companies.  His vision began with refrigerator magnets for Dolly Parton and Randy Travis.  Over the past 20 years, the company has expanded from refrigerator magnets to just about anything imaginable.  His moto has always been:
         "If it ain't a t-shirt....we do it!!"
