The Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns—two gridiron greats, and ultimate rivals, can now unite as the first two teams to be launched by giftware manufacturer, Wendell August Forge.

Wendell August Forge is partnering with the NFL (celebrating its 100th season) to create a series of one-of-a-kind, American-made, hand-forged metal products, and they’re starting with their closest neighbors, Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

“We’ve been forging metal for nearly 100 years, and this is the most significant opportunity for our company to date,” says Wendell August Forge President Christian Werner.

To license the NFL brand is an extremely difficult and meticulous process, and is only awarded to an elite group of manufacturers. The NFL saw something unique in the Wendell August brand, specifically the quality of the giftware and being an American manufacturer.

Wendell August Forge is launching a collection of personalized Steelers and Browns keepsake gifts just in time for Father’s Day including keychains, bag tags and coasters in aluminum and bronze. Additional home décor, entertaining accessories and ornaments will launch throughout the summer and fall.

“There’s a fan in every household throughout the country,” says Werner. “As these fans choose to support our NFL collection, they will be helping to preserve and create new jobs in America.”

Forged with meaning, Wendell August has been crafted by artisans in Pennsylvania since 1923. Each personalized gift is a unique symbol of the stories, traditions and milestones that bind us together. Find our locations or shop online at www.wendellaugust.com/nfl.
