About

Randy & Ali Schaffner, parents, best friends, entrepreneurs, graphic artists, accidental woodworkers, and big supporters of Made in USA products.

Prior to 2008 I had spent my entire adult life working in the corporate world, the bulk of it as office manager/web developer for a water quality monitoring company. In 2008 the company was purchased and ultimately sold off in pieces by a larger corporation. It was the height of the great recession so I decided a short break was in order before going back out into the work force. It was then that my younger sister became pregnant; needing a special gift for her baby shower I looked to my husband.

My husband Randy on the other hand has spent his entire adult working life taking raw materials and converting them into finished products, founding manufacturing companies in the bicycle, snowboard, and powersports industries. He had been experimenting with digital printing on various materials for a few years but had yet to do anything with it. I decided that a custom art piece for my sister printed on wood was the perfect personal gift. On the day of her shower the feedback from the guests was so positive that a light bulb went off in my head, and Chocolate Moose Design was born.

In the years since we have added Truckee Frame Company, My Vintage Farmhouse, and A Thousand Words to form CMD Brands. I have been designing and manufacturing personalized artwork with help from Randy since 2009, in late 2013 he sold his business, and has dedicated himself full time to CMD Brands.

Every piece is handmade start to finish in our Grass Valley, Ca. studio. 80% of supplies are purchased from vendors within a 30 mile radius of Grass Valley. Keeping money in and supporting our local economy. Whenever possible our supplies are USA made.

    I love rust, I love rusty things. As a designer most of the time I am working to make the customers vision a reality. But if it were up to me everything would be rusty. – Ali O'Brien Schaffner, Designer

    The production half of Chocolate Moose Design, my wonderful husband hand selects each sheet of maple we use, cuts each one to order and generally has all the hard, dirty, saw-dusty and not glamorous jobs that our business entails.
