Did you know?
  • The original Rudolph did not have a red nose. In that day and age, red noses were seen as an indicator of chronic alcoholism and Montgomery Ward didn’t want him to look like a drunkard. To complete the original picture, he was almost named Reginald or Rollo.
  • The Christmas wreath was originally hung as a symbol of Jesus. The holly represents his crown of thorns and the red berries the blood he shed.
  • The three traditional colors of most Christmas decorations are red, green and gold. Red symbolizes the blood of Christ, green symbolized life and rebirth, and gold represents light, royalty and wealth.
  • Tinsel was invented in 1610 in Germany and was once made of real silver.
  • The oldest artificial Christmas trees date back to the late 1800s and were made of green raffia (think grass hula skirts) or dyed goose feathers. Next the Addis Brush Company used their machinery that wove toilet brushes to create pine-like branches for artificial Christmas trees that were less flammable and could hold heavier decorations.
  • ‘Jingle Bells’ – the popular Christmas song was composed by James Pierpont in Massachusetts, America. It was, however, written for thanksgiving and not Christmas.
  • Coca-Cola was the first company that used Santa Claus during the winter season for promotion.
  • Hallmark introduced their first Christmas cards in 1915.
  • The first recorded date of Christmas being celebrated on December 25th was in 336, during the time of the Roman Emperor Constantine. A few years later, Pope Julius I officially declared that the birth of Jesus would be celebrated on that day.
  • Santa Claus's sleigh is led by eight reindeer: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Dunder (variously spelled Donder and Donner), and Blixem (variously spelled Blixen and Blitzen), with Rudolph being a 20th-century inclusion.
  • Outdoor Christmas lights on homes evolved from decorating the traditional Christmas tree and house with candles during the Christmas season. Lighting the tree with small candles dates back to the 17th century and originated in Germany before spreading to Eastern Europe.
  • That big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard didn’t always look that way. Prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall gaunt man to a spooky-looking elf. He has donned a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. When Civil War cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa was a small elflike figure who supported the Union. Nast continued to draw Santa for 30 years, changing the color of his coat from tan to the red he’s known for today.
  • Christmas 2018 countdown has already begun. Will you be ready???
  • Why do we love Christmas? It's all about the traditions. In this chaotic world we can miss the "good old days." Christmas reminds us of that time.

Hey community, 

This is my first post and we are new to this, so if I'm doing this wrong and/or not in the correct place, please let me know kindly and I will edit as needed.  Our company is called Victory Corps. We are over 100 years old and are the leader in manufacturing floral sheeting, fringe, and garland for party, events, and parades.  Our floral sheeting can be used as a back drop, table overlay/runner/skirt, or to wrap a column or set on the floor for texture.  Our garland and fringe are used for borders, skirting, hanging as streamers, and much more.

We are also excited to announce that www.MyDoorDecor.com is restocked with new designs for single car garages, double car garages, split car garages, and single indoor/outdoor front doors.  We have partnered with the old owner to increase capacity, service, lead times, and quality.  We are sold on Amazon under VICTORY CORPS and www.MyDoorDecor.com.

We manufacture everything in the USA (MINNESOTA TO BE EXACT)!




I look forward to hearing everyone's comments and feedback.

Glad to see MyDoorDecor is still up!  I bought one 5 or 6 years ago and it has held up amazingly well.  I would definitely buy one again....if I had another garage.  ;)

I have sent a PM regarding the garland and sheeting.

We are out of our hardware inventory for about 2 weeks now due to demand.  Once we get our next delivery of hardware, we should be good to go for the rest of the holiday seasons 2017.  

With that said, any order should ship out within 2 - 3 days once inventory arrives.

Thanks for your message!

To bad they don't make 8' high door covers......

Too funny Big J...I sent em a PM and said the same thing!   I do own one of the standard 7' sizes and hang it on my 8' garage door.  I simply tied longer cords on the bottom aluminum clips to the tension springs and it works great.  The perfection in me wishes it went all the way to the ground.  I have led floods that illuminate it.

MyDoorDecor....I would recommend adding pics of the mounting clips to your site or a short video showing how it hangs.  Quality attachment hardware and it goes on very easily.  I usually hang it all by myself in a few minutes.

do the spring clips rub on the door and scratch the paint off?

No.  Aluminum J hooks are adhered to the back of the top of the banner.  They are approx. 1 1/2" wide flat aluminum stock bent into a J shape to slip over the top edge of the garage door.  The same J hooks are attached by a thin cord along the bottom to clip under the bottom edge of the garage door.  On the bottom of the banner, adhered to the back, are plastic slides with a spring inside for tension connected to the other end of the cords.  The tensioners keep it tight and allow you to open the door.  I have had no damage/scratches to my door from any of the hardware...just slips on and off to mount.   The banner material is so thick that mine does not flap in the wind at all. 

I made a similar design for Halloween to black out the door.  I used heavy black plastic sheeting, fixed it to the bottom edge of the door and then wrapped it over the top edge of the door.  Inside, I use bungee cords to hold the top tight, yet allow it to move while opening/closing the door.  My monster bottom teeth are adhered to the bottom of the plastic and top teeth hang from the house trim.  Giant monster teeth and yet have a full functioning garage door.

I appreciate all the questions and feedback.  We should have most other sizes available by Q1 of 2018, so I appreciate your patience as we grow our assortment.

I do have a question:  Are there consumer shows that a lot of PC members attend that we should be at?

I would suggest the Christmas Expo.  There is a forum on the site with info.  Additionally, a lot of local groups have mini expos that I would watch out for.


and I would recommend hitting up Chuck to place an add in the PC Magazine and be listed as a vendor on this site

I have had 2 door covers for about 5 years and they are great - even in cold weather.  I was going to suggest that you ask Chuck Smith how to get included in the PC vendor list. . . .but now I can't find the list.  Hopefully that is temporary as I use the list a lot when looking for something different.  Also all of the vendors there are reliable because if you don't treat PC members well they will complain to the community and Chuck will delist the company.  Good Luck.

We have a new website that is much easier to use, with new themes, and many more Christmas designs coming soon too!  We were showcased numerous times in the Great Christmas Light Fight on ABC, both using our garland on most of their outdoor frames as well as My Door Decor's garage door murals.

Our garland can be found on our site here:  https://www.victorycorps.com/Category/Select?categoryid=1212

Our door decor products can be found here:  www.MyDoorDecor.com
