About Nauvoo Supply, the LDS Marketplace
Our vision is simple: the malls of America have failed the believers
What we consume and where we stand matter
Gordon B. Hinckley showed how humor can break down barriers. I aim to take my bold and classic design sensibility and infuse it with humor to create apparel that invites conversation, is fun, looks modern, but is somehow totally unexpected.
As Saints, we tend to buy and wear the world’s brands and stream the world’s movies, music, and books. With Nauvoo Supply Co. I aim to remix, hack, and mashup those brands and media we love, to influence the way Saints think about our consumption and how we express outwardly what we consume. The name Nauvoo Supply Co. emphasizes the Nauvoo period, one of the boldest periods in our history where we had the audacity to build a city as large as Chicago from a Mississippi River swamp. I chose Nauvoo as a signal that we have much more cultural depth, history, and heritage to draw from than we might realize.
Below are some answers to common questions you might have.
Frequently asked questions
How soon will I get my order?

What is “LDS” exactly?
LDS is shorthand for “Latter-day Saint” and it's a reference to members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Sometimes when people are looking for gifts, or items, specific to Latter-day Saint community, we might use LDS as a tag for convenience in finding items online.
I thought we weren’t supposed to call things “Mormon”?
We always use the full name of the church, but you'll see us use the name Mormon when we have titles like The Book of Mormon or when we refer to the prophet Mormon, or to historic events like the Mormon Pioneer Trek. Otherwise, when we refer to the Church we will use its full name.
Where can I buy Nauvoo Supply items?
Right here on NauvooSupply.com, naturally.
Where are you located?
Our headquarters and design studio is in Northwest Arkansas. All of our print production and fulfillment partners are in various locations in the US.
Whenever possible our items are printed in the US on US-made goods and that holds true for most of our items. Other items come from Asia and India, and those will be identified on their respective product page.
Why the name Nauvoo?
The Nauvoo period in the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints represents a time when the Church was attracting people from all over the expanding West, Canada and Europe. As it expanded the people were deciding what cultural norms they would keep from their past, or what cultural norms they would create in the new Church.
We also think it has a better sound to it than naming it after Salt Lake or Provo.
How do you pronounce Nauvoo?
You say it like / naw • voo /. It sounds a little French, but it's actually a Hebrew word that means beautiful. It was not uncommon to hear the city of Nauvoo called Nauvoo the Beautiful.
