As a proud Tennessean living in Southern California, Janna Abraham was searching for ways to stay connected to her family and her homeplace in Dickson County, Tennessee. So on a summer visit to the country, she began photographing the landmarks and scenery that she had always held close to her heart. The love she felt for these locations coupled with the warm memories of her childhood resonated in these photos, and the "Homeplace" line of coasters was born.
Janna's upbringing, her hometown pride and deeply grounded Tennessee roots then sprouted an entire brand. Preserve Press is a bright reflection of Janna’s love for the Volunteer State, its history and its undeniable grit.
In 2017, Preserve Press became a licensed vendor with The University of Southern California. Soon thereafter, we proudly secured a licensee with The University of Tennessee and other colleges across the southeast. The licensed product line celebrates campus life and the memorable moments we experience as fans, alumni and students.
In 2020, Janna left California behind to firmly plant her future in the place that never stopped calling her home: Tennessee. Preserve Press is now registered in Janna's home county of Dickson and daily operations are driven from Janna's childhood home -- a serendipitous collision of heart, soul and business.
“I don’t know how many folks start a business in California and five years later pick it up and move it to their childhood home where their parents brought them home from the hospital...but I sure did. It’s an honor to finally be a Tennessee-based business, “ Abraham said.
Leveraging her background in marketing and passion for all things Tennessee, Janna works closely with various brands and UT Systems departments to create high-end promotional products and customized gifts that are meaningful and memorable. Preserve Press also has a presence at a few of your favorite retail shops across Tennessee.
Preserve Press is proud to be a Made-in-the-USA company and a portion of our proceeds benefit charities that support cancer research and Tennesseans in need.
