Thank you for visiting Deadbrand Designs. So, why did I choose the name Deadbrand Designs? Well, if you don't already know, I drive a 2008 Pontiac G8 GT and it is a member of the club of vehicles whose brand has been killed off for one reason or another. And since then, another legendary brand, Holden, has joined those ranks. It is truly sad to see such incredible cars discontinued. Hopefully the senseless murdering of great car brands has come to an end.
As far as this little venture, it all started years ago when I finally got rid of the mini van, a.k.a. Daddy Wagon and finally bought a car I had been wanting for a long time. My 2008 Pontiac G8 GT I call the P8RIOT. Like most newbs, I joined a bunch of pages, groups and forums and in my spare time began to doodle, as my wife calls it, and did my first G8 themed T-shirt design. With the help of a mutual G8 owner (thanks Danny!), we did a short run of shirts and the response was good. That evolved into more designs and more shirts so I began the Teespring campaigns. Another fellow G8 owner (thanks Keith!) saw a plaque that someone had done for a different car and asked if I could come up with something for the G8’s. Once the layout was complete, the first 2 G8 build plaques were completed and of course we shared them on the various pages. Again, the response was great and others began requesting them. From there, over the past 3 years, it has spread across various models and I have customers all across the globe.
I enjoy communicating with all of my customers about their cars and customizing these build plaques and hood props for them. It has been a pleasure to engage with so many car enthusiasts and I love seeing the pics that they send with their products in use.
Please look around and hit the Contact Me tab to let me know if there is something I can do for you. I look forward to serving the car community for many years to come. And a big THANK YOU to all of the customers that have helped me grow this business.
"Thanks to Chris Frech and his awesome underhood plaque. I was able to customize it the way I wanted. It's a great conversation starter, and a good way to meet chicks. This is better than Tinder. "
"GREAT product at a reasonable price. Great to work with too. Very responsive. The plaques are a finishing touch to any engine bay."
"Chris Frech offers a great product at a great price! It really dresses up the underhood view of my car at shows. "
"I have enjoyed my plaque ever since I installed it....I get a lot of people asking where I got it and I'd tell them your info and the next thing I know they have one too. These are great assets to any show car!! "
"Dude your product is second to none. I was sold when I saw it. Now that I have it I want a hood prop!! "
"Chris Frech is the man when it comes to build plaques. Awesome work and even better customer service. Now all I have to do is decide on a color."
"Great work as usual! Customer service is awesome and even did a quick turn around for us so we'd have both of ours for Camarofest8.This was the fourth one done for me and my wife's Camaros.. 2018 2SS 1LE Iron Man."
"I love my plaque! It is very nice!."
"Thanks for last year’s great service you provided to dozens of my car friend enthusiast, All of them were very happy with the plaques and your customer service during the ordering process. Bout time you jumped in with both feet as I know many offer very similar products at 150% more than your price. "
