Remember that Christmas car TV commercial with the gigantic red bow on top of a white Lexus? Some one had to make that bow. That someone is Lynda King, founder with Kendra Jacoby of King Size Bows in Newport Beach.

The Giant Red Car Bow that made us famous! The Lexus Holiday Car Bow

If you see a really big bow on a building, a car or a commercial display, it’s not a bad guess that it came from King Size Bows. Among the company’s assignments:

 

  • TV hostess Oprah gave away 276 cars, each with a King Size Bow on it
  • The Empire State Building
  • Gigantic packages displayed at Rockefeller Center in New York
  • Many Ford, Lincoln Mercury and Mitsubishi dealerships nationwide
  • Sharper Image interior decorations

“We’ve sold bows for horses, for tractors, for houses,” King said. “Bows are a happy visual. They don’t have a religious connotation.”

Among the more unusual requests: A young man ordered a purple bow for a man-sized box he used in his marriage proposal to his girlfriend. Or the drag queen who wanted to wrap himself up to give to his boyfriend.

“We sell internationally but mostly in the U.S,” she said. ” The standard bows are made in Los Angeles and sent to us partly assembled. The custom ones are made in our Costa Mesa warehouse.”

The standard bows the company keeps in stock sell for $49 to $125. The custom bows can cost thousands of dollars and come in any style or size. The most expensive King has made was a 20-foot-tall bow and building wrap for a hospital opening that cost $5,300.

There are some other big bow manufacturers and each has different styles, some poofy, others — like King Size Bows — are sleek and tailored. The custom orders are whatever the customer requests, King said. “We’re not necessarily the cheapest but we emphasize quality control.”

It all started nine years ago when King and her husband wanted to give their daughter a white Volkswagen convertible.

“I needed the biggest bow and I couldn’t find one anywhere,” King recalled. “I called car dealerships and described what I wanted and they said, ‘I wish we had them; we get requests like that all the time.'”

That’s the type of hint King always keeps her entrepreneurial antenna turned for. “Most people hear opportunities all the time; I really listen for them,” she said.

She previously owned a jewelry line called the King Collection that she sold to the Home Shopping Network. For the bow venture, she said it was natural to call on Jacoby, her friend of more than 25 years, to partner with her.

They started by having a booth at a national auto dealers’ convention. Once they got into one dealership for a brand, word spread and they got into others throughout the network. Then they got a call from the Sharper Image to decorate all its stores. Oprah’s assistants found the company by Google adwords.

Typically the pair do all the work, but they bring on as many as 40 temporary workers in September and October for the Christmas rush.

Giant decorations for new-car gifts

Have you ever seen any gift as exciting as a brand new car sitting in someone’s driveway with a on it?

What a thrill to receive a new car all dressed up with one of these magnificent decorative treatments. Imagine giving your wife or a child a big gift wrapped in a big bow. Talk about sending the right package. It’s a great way to say, “I love you, ” at this most festive of seasons.

These elegant and stunning car bows put a unique and stylish twist on the idea of bigger and better gift wrapping. But where do they come from? From King Size Bows, headquartered in Newport Beach, California, that’s where.

Started four years ago by Lynda King and Kendra King Jacoby, the company manufacturers and sells their large decorative bows to car dealerships and individuals throughout North America.

King said it was an idea she had tucked in the back of her mind. Several years ago, she was searching for a big, red bow after she and her husband bought a car for their daughter for Christmas. “I was in R&D for nine months,” she said.

King knew she was on to something when she called up car dealers and asked them: If she bought a car where could she get a big, red bow? Nine out of 10 had no idea, she said.

From there, King started the business with a flyer sent to 2,000 dealerships. She got 70 as customers. The rest have come by word of mouth. Since then, thousands of her bows have been shipped to the U.S., Canada and Europe.

As well as auto dealerships, King Size Bows can count General Motors, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo among its corporate customers. The company even provided bows to the Pontiac G6 Dream Give Away program that hit the headlines on the Oprah Winfrey TV show a couple of years ago.

Though they come in four colours, red bows are the biggest sellers. The bows are 30 inches in diameter and 12 inches high, with 12-inch long streamers.

While they make the joy of this season’s celebrations linger a little longer, the bows make a perfect and unique complement to any gift, whether it be an airplane, boat, snowmobile, major appliance or even a new home itself.
