Big thanks for Peyton Manning for wearing our Tennessee Flag Belt to the Tennessee Georgia game.  As you can see from the picture below he has put some wear on it in the past eight years!  We appreciate his support as well as @Vol_Photos for capturing the picture.

Why we make the products we make.

Posted on August 19, 2014 by Mason Jones

Two years ago the University of Tennessee reached out to us with an idea to work with them on licensed merchandise.  Our instant thought was, "Cool, but this is a pretty massive undertaking for a business our size."  After further discussions, they helped put together a plan for Volunteer Traditions to ensure this was doable. They agreed to the designs we had been wanting to make in order for us to have a unique brand, that the marketplace would be ready and desired the products (the UT Bookstore for example).  With a new project it was crucial to have partners that wanted this to work as much as we did.  We have been very blessed with this opportunity and are getting to make an assortment of awesome products we've always wanted to bring to the market!

The question now from many people is, "Why don't you make more (insert team name/color/state)?"  Sometimes people are great about it...sometimes they are less than understanding that we are not Nike/Ralph Lauren and can't make 50 colors/work with every school/etc. We would love to work with additional colors and schools. In terms of colors we simply bring designs/colors to our retail partners, working to get preorders months in advance helps us to plan our line and end up with the products that are most likely to be sold complete.  We simply cannot financially carry every color if stores are not demanding these designs/colors. Some people call this capitalism, others would rather complain via social media of the injustices we are causing.

In addition, we plan out well in advance of a season, so if you don't see something that was just released today, we probably would be adding a color tomorrow.  We're a small business and we can't churn out new products overnight.

If you work for a university and are interested in working with us, we'd love to hear from your to get your institution on board.  Our collegiate line has been extremely successful and would love to look into more places across the south.

Bonna- who?

Posted on June 11, 2014 by Mason Jones


Tennessee has been home of one of the largest music and arts festival since it opened its gates in 2002. Each June, Bonnaroo brings tens of thousands of people from all over the country to sway beneath the Manchester stars. Bonnaroo pulls in big names from Sir Paul Mccartney to Kanye West to Tom Petty to Grouplove. This coming weekend is no different. So whether you are going to to listen to your favorite jam band, sing Benny and the Jets at the top of your lungs, or just to eat an Amish donut, welcome to Tennessee, y'all.

Father's Day

Posted on May 29, 2014 by Mason Jones

Growing up, your dad was probably the most embarrassing person to be around. In hindsight, your dad was pretty rad. He may have taught you to ride your first bike, or to drive your first car. He was at all of your football games, and he is probably the reason you sing ZZ Top at the top of your lungs when they come on the radio. Lets be honest: You wouldn’t be here without him.
So that leads us to the question..
What do you get for the man that means everything and has everything, too? We have thrown together a few little gift guides that just may be what you are looking for.
 For the dad that likes to cook..
For the VolTrad dad.. duh
For the sweet toothed dad..
For Cartographer-eque dad
For the dad who enjoys farming in luxury...
For the dad that needs a Tennessee shaped cutting board:
Because everyone likes GooGoos.. 
For the football loving dad:

For the tie wearing dad:

For the meat loving, American dad:
For dad that is named 'Henry Watson Haworth'
For the book loving dad:

Tristar Decals - How to properly align your Tennessee Flag Sticker

Posted on March 02, 2014 by Mason Jones

Serious topics deserve serious discussion.  That's why we decided to explain the correct way for Tristar Decals to be placed on your vehicle, laptop, dorm fridge, nalgene, etc.  Luckily, we have had some help getting the word out about the issue.  Our friends at WPLN in Nashville came and talked about the topic this past December.  The key to properly aligning your decal is to make sure that it's two stars over one....with the left a slight bit higher. The best explanation cane be found here
