ASB Story

santa1jMany years ago I made a big investment in a new, custom made-to-measure Santa suit, then searched far and wide for a quality Santa belt, however, all I could find were the tinny, stamped buckles with plastic belts.  I decided I would try to sketch one and see if I could build one out of real brass and heavy-duty leather, since I like working with my hands.

When my creation was finished, I was proud of what I had done and took it with me to our January Santa luncheon.  When I held it up to show the Santas there, someone said: “Wow, where did you get that?  I want one!”  That was the beginning of Awesome Santa Belts which now produces 50 products for the professional Santa.  I personally build each and every one by hand in my Santa’s workshop to the highest quality standards.  My promise to you is that I will never ship any product to you that I would not be proud to wear myself!  Visit the Testimonial section to see comments I have received from my Santa customer/friends.

 

How  They Are Made?

santa1bI start with downloading my product computer designs to a computer controlled hydro cutting machine.  The brass is shaped to a nice curvature nesting onto Santa’s ‘cookie zone’.  Next comes the brazing on the backside of the buckle for the prongs and steel loop to attach the belt onto the buckle.

Next comes many stages of polishing to put a shiny finish on the buckle, good enough to use as a mirror to shave by, if you ever decided you wanted to shave again!   Next comes the baked on powder coating process that seals the buckle and prevents oxidization and tarnishing.  This gives you a permanent no-polish finish.  When you look your best, you will have high self-confidence to do your best as Santa!

The solid brass is shaped for a comfy contour to fit nicely over Santa’s ‘cookie zone.’

Each brass buckle is polished to a mirror finish, then treated with powder coating for a permanent no-polish finish.

The Santa buckles are crafted with two welded prongs to keep the buckle perfectly aligned.

Santa Richard selects only the finest quality of heavy-duty black cowhide and buffalo hides, then cuts them into strips for the various widths needed for the orders.

Two rows of holes are punched in the belt to keep the belt perfectly aligned with the buckle.

Next he attaches the belt to the buckle and tries each one on to insure that the order is well done and ready to ship.

These Santa products are designed to last a lifetime.  I am a firm believer in practicing the golden rule with service after the sale.  If you ever need service, I’m here for you!
