Alison Banholzer
Alison Banholzer
Like most young parents, Ali & David were busy raising two energetic young girls. In addition to having a happy family, they had other big dreams. In Ali's case it was to create better looking t-shirts for her girls events. Driven by pure passion and creativity, Ali Banholzer, mother of two fabulous daughters, and proud military spouse, launched Wear Your Spirit Wearhouse from her kitchen table in 2004. Meanwhile, David was pursuing his dreams as an Air Force officer.

The girls were growing up and both Ali’s dreams and David’s were coming true. Wear Your Spirit Wearhouse outgrew the kitchen table and in 2010 moved into a commercial space.

In early 2014, David achieved his dream. He became the 14th Presidential Pilot of the United States and the Commander of Air Force One! Tragically, later that year, David was diagnosed with terminal cancer and eventually lost his battle in 2017.

To honor David’s legacy of service, Ali and her team are committed to excellence. They provide the highest standards of service possible to customers all over the country. If you look at our logo, hear us talking about spirits soaring or things taking flight - now you know why!

"Everyone knows what it feels like to have your spirit take flight and soar. That pure rush of happiness! My story has taught me that life is short and should be celebrated. Let's celebrate together!”
— Ali Banholzer

Johanna, known as Jo, loves working out, family time, and practicing gratitude and a positive mindset daily. Her unwavering belief in the importance of connections and work ethic have helped mold her career into a love of hers, as well.

Over 15 years ago, Johanna began at Axis, an award-winning promotional products agency, as an associate account manager. With her enthusiastic, fun-loving attitude and in-depth understanding of account management, she rose to her current role as VP of Sales, Midwest. Her impressive work ethic and love of her industry have opened the doors to key roles in many projects, such as new business development at Axis and opening and heading the Axis Chicago office. Named to Advertising Specialty Institute’s “Hot List” in 2017, Johanna’s optimistic worldview and love of her work earned her the identifier of, “who we all want as the spokesperson for the promo industry”.

Despite her incredibly busy, rewarding work at Axis, Johanna makes time to chair two teams that are important to her values: PromoKitchen (2019) and the PPAI (Promotional Products Association International) Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force (2021). Johanna is involved in speaking engagements nationwide to discuss two topics near to her heart: best business practices and diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. Her passion for promotional products and persistence for excellence have created genuinely fulfilling career opportunities for years with no sign of slowing down in the future.
