• I LOVE good design, it makes life easier.

    I design products that solve problems, including

    EZ Bar Box, EzLightWraps, and Fitware™ Modular Storage System

    Hi, I'm Marj Weir

    Self employed in graphic design for many years, it's a great background for other ventures. I created and patented the Fitware™ Modular Storage System, also known as TailgaterBox.com This was chosen out of over 3000 products by a VC group to fund my patent.

     

    From this venture I've learned a lot - CAD art, 3D printing, focus groups, manufacturing, prototyping, patents, plastics, shipping, customs, web design, marketing, e-commerce, trade shows, product fulfillment and more.

     

    Before Inventing...

    • I was a driver examiner giving road tests at 19

    • Managed the St Paul Midway DMV at age 21

    • On the side I did freelance graphic design

    • For a time, I was a wedding and Party Cake designer, (including a few for the owners of Cafe Latte!)

    Creative collaborations...

    • Did catalogs and presentation pieces for LeCordon Bleu Cooking School and Brown College of Mendota Heights, also teaching part time at Brown.

    • Dreamed up Sail Away Bar & Restaurant, including a weekly music schedule, catering and many local events.

    Real estate is a collaboration...

    • Over 150 residential real estate transactions, including many investor properties, and home staging

    • Many home rehabs, from distressed properties into beautiful homes, resulting in the highest area sales.

    Real Estate is my current side hussle!

    Yes, I'm still a realtor and love it! But designing is my passion, as well as putting people together - and I’d like to connect with you. If I can be of assistance, drop a line or make a call.

     

    EzLightWraps has taken off! Now selling on Etsy, Walmart.com and Wayfair.com besides our site.
