At WisconsinMade, our goal is to provide the best of Wisconsin to the rest of the United States. Our definition of "Made in Wisconsin" depends on the type of item.
We permit the use of ingredients from outside of the state as long as the final product is created in Wisconsin.
We required that at least 80% of the contents in a WisconsinMade gift assortments are made in Wisconsin. Usually the items in the assortment that aren't "Made in Wisconsin" are crackers and the container itself. We would never leave the cheese and sausage making to anyone else!
Wisconsin Sports Merchandise and Apparel
WisconsinMade started out with a focus on food and crafts but our customers insisted that it's just not Wisconsin without the Packers, Badgers and Brewers.
While we attempted to keep these Wisconsin-themed products local, a few key items had to be sourced outside of the state. Items like t-shirts, caps and sports merchandise have been sourced through several small Wisconsin businesses but made elsewhere. Even though the actual shirt, hat or non-apparel item might be made elsewhere, licensing revenue from Wisconsin sports merchandise still supports your favorite Wisconsin teams.
Literature and Toys
All books, calendars, DVDs, CDs, Games, Toys, and puzzles featured on WisconsinMade fit into one of the following categories.
- Written by a Wisconsin Author or created/designed by a Wisconsin Company
- About Wisconsin

- Printed or manufactured in Wisconsin
Arts and Crafts
All of our artisans create their final products here in Wisconsin. Some crafters even use mainly Wisconsin materials in their work. When artists use mainly Wisconsin materials in their work, we try to make note of it.
Baskets, boxes, tins, bags and other packaging may or may not be made in Wisconsin. When it is, we try to mention it.
If you have a question about a specific product, a Wisconsin-based customer service representative would be happy to assist (contact information listed below).
