Michelle Brandriss, Founder and President of Name Bubbles LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership as an entrepreneur and administrator.
Ms. Brandriss attended the University of the Pacific and earned a Bachelor of Arts in international and global studies in 1991. Prior to her current career, she worked for years in the advertising industry. When her son was very young, she found herself using masking tape and Sharpie permanent markers to label her son’s possessions with his name—as a mother, she knew firsthand how nice it was to see her child’s name on his things. Ms. Brandriss listened to her entrepreneurial instincts, and seeing an opportunity in the market, she jumped on it, founding Name Bubbles LLC in 2009. Currently, she continues to serve as president of the company, and endeavors in the coming years to expand the brand beyond the United States, into the global market.
Name Bubbles LLC produces high-quality, personalized, waterproof labels for a wide variety of products, including clothing, backpacks, food containers, and shoes. Ms. Brandriss has worked hard to create a brand and team that produces the best quality products to help keep her customers happy and organized. She knows firsthand how important it is for a startup to have good internal employee morale, a solid business model, and sound budgeting. She strives to be a fair and mindful employer and is proud to be a woman-owned manufacturer who encourages an open and collaborative environment. Ms. Brandriss attributes her success to her planning, vision, and discipline—she set up a list of her short-term and long-term goals, and worked to check them off. She advises aspiring entrepreneurs to follow through with everyday tasks, work to overcome obstacles to their goals, and always mind the bottom line.
In the decade since Ms. Brandriss founded Name Bubbles LLC, she has grown the company from just an idea into a thriving and growing business with a loyal customer base around the world. For her excellence and success as an entrepreneur, she has earned multiple awards for Name Bubbles LLC, including being named an Outstanding Product by the 2009 iParenting Media Awards. In both 2012 and 2014, the company earned a Seal of Approval from Parent Tested Parent Approved, and in 2014, it additionally won a Gold Medal from the Mom’s Choice Awards. Most recently, in 2017, Ms. Brandriss was proud to receive an Excellence in Small Business Award from the United States Small Business Administration. Since the company’s founding in 2009, Ms. Brandiss has made charitable contributions through the Name Bubbles Giving Program and has partnered for the past two years with Blessings in a Backpack to raise money for child hunger.
In 2020, Ms. Brandriss joined the Women Presidents’ Organization, a nonprofit institution designed for female presidents, CEOs, and managing directors of privately held, multimillion-dollar companies. She is also one of the founding members of the Troy Rensselaer Technology Valley Chapter of the Women Presidents’ Organization along with nine other members.
