Let’s Bring Your Product Design and Development Ideas to Life
Our Product Services
Digital Product Tech Packs
Our turnkey product design and development solutions for consumer and industrial products include the development of detailed Digital Product Tech Packs which document all the materials, appearance and performance specifications, packaging, and quality programs for each new product. CAD files and samples complete the process so when the product is released to production there are no black holes or confusion. Our “measure twice and cut once” philosophy gets the job done right the first time.
Custom Tooling and Product Molds
We have been making tooling for custom products for decades and know the best materials, methods, and places to make them in the most economical way. Our tools, molds, and production jigs are of the highest quality and are designed for maximum production efficiency and long life capable of making millions of units.
Prototype Design & Production
We use multiple techniques including hand sculpting, 3D printing, hand work, and rapid prototyping techniques to produce one-of-a-kind (or small run) product development “looks-like” and “works-like” prototype samples that represent accurately what the appearance and performance of the final tooled product will be. This is a huge advantage to avoid oversights and assumptions that are made without such resources.
Packaging Design & Development
Our packaging designers work with your team to design packaging that will give a great first impression while also providing maximum protection for your products using the most sustainable materials available. Packaging strength testing is conducted in certifed labs to prove out that the package design is in compliance with established standards. When improvements are needed, the design is revised and the testing is repeated again and again until it passes. And, since we design the package sizes starting with the various shipping unit dimensions, be it a shelf, a pallet, or a container, our package designs also pay dividends by minimizing wasted space. Sustainability and your complete satisfaction are our two strongest drivers.

Established in 1963
History of Greenbrier Studios
Greenbrier Studios™, a product design and development studio, originated as the creative group of Bright of America and it’s marketing divisions including Church Graphics, Lincoln House, Readers Digest, Russ Berrie, Greenbrier-Scentex, Practice Power, and others, all established in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s. Bright of America assembled a top notch product design, prototyping, R&D, and photography studio with many talented graphic artists, engineers, developers, and designers creating many innovative products to the beautiful central West Virginia mountains.
Originally, an in-house graphics arts products manufacturer, Bright of America’s success and growth led to the establishment of global manufacturing resources to diversify the product line and develop a reliable network of proven manufacturing partners delivering across a diverse range of product categories and industries. Thus, the new product development program developed new techniquest to inderface effectively with offshore suppliers. Today, that network continues to serve our customers with low cost, high quality products. And, many of those same vintage products produced in the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s are still traded in on-line forums and we reproduce them on request from our vast in-house library of vintage art.
