About Us

COADB.com was founded in 2015 with the goal of creating a central location where hundreds of thousands of real, historical coats of arms can be viewed for free.

Your surname and your family’s coat of arms are important links between the past and the present that help you understand your roots. That’s why we offer a genealogy research service to trace your ancestry to help determine which coat of arms was associated with your family.

We also supply a wide choice of products – you can order t-shirts, hoodies, posters, pillows, mugs, and stickers with your family crest printed on them.

We work closely with our fulfillment service, Printful.com, who handles all our order processing and shipping from their three strategically located facilities in California, North Carolina, Mexico, and Latvia.
