Welcome To B Free Hangers
We are a men's, women's and children's garment hanger design company specializing in unique products not offered by others in the industry. We are also known for popular priced wood and plastic hangers at competitive prices. Rounding out our lineup of products are mannequins, torsos, bathing suit forms, garment racks, and garment bags available to retail stores, manufacturer's showroom's and residential interior designers.
You might say I was inspired by my grandfather Henry Spitz who was in the hanger business since 1929 and my father, Herbert Spitz, who created the world's first plastic hanger (it was a 12" kiddie hanger) back in the 1940's.
Prior to 2001, when B Free was created, the early innovations that I take most pride in are satin plated finishes along with a matte black powder coated finish for hooks, bars and clips (a standard in the industry since), silver vacuum plated plastic hangers, dozens of exciting new hanger colors, rack friendly "broad shoulder" hangers designed to take up half the space, sandblasted frosted finish hangers, velvet non-slip no trouser mark pant bars for hangers, and Walt Disney World's Mickey Mouse silhouette hook.
We have found that when prospective customers come to us, they tell us what they want based on what they have seen or know what is available. Many, however, are unaware of what is new and exciting in the world of hangers. It is our job to make their visions a reality by helping them to choose hangers that are visually stimulating addressing three important factors: quality, delivery and price. We guarantee 2 out of 3 as we constantly strive for 3 out of 3.
Our business model is to integrate the ease of the online shopping experience with the personal service for which we are known.
"B Free has created a revolutionary concept in the hanger industry; innovative design and unparalleled customer service. – Lew Falzon, Theory LLC
*New is the reverse embossed engraving & the popular laser etching for logos
*Customizing hangers allows brand identification and reinforces a connection with your customer.
*Bright color in general is a trend ; yellow is a sunny option!
* Sometimes people find vintage hangers that appeal to them. We can duplicate many of them!
* Light wood hangers have a clean lean look for a modern aesthetic.
* Black and white are design color trends. You can let your imagination b free in choosing accent colors for hangers.
* According to Linda Cahan, visual merchandising and retail color psychology expert:
"If I had to pick ONE color:
Bright Red is the color that inspires people to buy more, eat more and do it all more quickly. Red resonates with our base life force energy. Red actually vibrates at a stronger frequency than any other color and creates heat. On a cold day wearing red can not only give the illusion that you're warm, you actually will feel warmer.
Too much red can work against you in a retail setting. Small amounts of red inspire sales while large amounts often create a feeling of impatience that can lead to anger, headaches, or people leaving more quickly.
Green is just the opposite both on the color wheel and in results. Greens encourage people to linger longer and time seems to go quickly in a green space. Green tones recede while reds pop.
I would stay away from a store with a lot of red but red hangers or red accents would be excellent.
If I had to pick ONE color as the perfect accent I'd go with a deep coral Pantone 178 C. It has red and orange tones but is softer and subtler. Deep coral also works well as an accent wall combined with neutrals".

Why not get twice as much for your money?
In a world of multipurposing why not purchase hangers to hold garments and
also to be a part of your design plan?
Rediscover color. It can range from low key to high impact!
Emerald green is the Pantone color of the year 2013 . Consider it a natural as a neutral...when did a flower ever clash with its leaves?
Yellow will be a force in 2013
New anti-slip hangers are becoming the standard , replacing sta-on pads and grips, and providing a more design conscious look
After the holidays neutrals with a twist are great. See the "Not Just Black Or White" flyer
*Great display and use of color are ALWAYS the trend.
*Timothy Opsomer, director of visual display and store planning for MGM Mirage Retail says that " As part of any overall interior design, attention to detail is critical to achieving the total environment you are trying to accomplish. On perimeter walls or floor fixtures in a ready-to-wear or fashion goods presentation, the hanging merchandise will be one of the more dominant features of the interior." Mr. Opsomer continues "We try to make sure the vehicle chosen to present these items projects the look and feel of our design. Given the wide range of choices and materials, colors and styles now being offered in hangers, a basic merchandise display requirement can now become an integral part of the design process."

*Velvet is fashionable for fall clothing. Velvet hangers are another option beside coated anti-slip hangers to alleviate slipping and to create a coordinated environment.
*Early fall color trends include greys, yellows and soft white. Try mixing moonglow beige with brushed chrome, slate river grey with brass or woodsmoke anti-slip hangers with either a warm or cool color scheme.
