One of the most popular posts since launching our blog was “Developing Stormy Kromer Plaids”, posted last September. We had 69 comments to that post with so many great suggestions on naming our plaids.

Mr. Grossman, You are the Caretaker of a Legend.

All employees here at Stormy Kromer receive this nifty plaque when they are hired, reminding them of the rich Kromer history they are keeping alive.

The Making of the Petal Pusher

December 30, 2011

Of all of the new products we introduced in 2011, the Petal Pusher Cap has been the biggest hit. In fact, we’ve sold over 5 times our initial sales projections for this product.
