About Us

Social Commitment

At Ohio Distinctive, we want to be socially relevant, to make a difference in people’s lives. So we created children’s educational games and health/nutrition software. For more than 30 years, we offered those products to the general public for an affordable price, often $5 or less. Although we no longer sell these CD-ROM products, we still offer free educational games online at ODSgames.com, and we will continue to do so until browsers no longer support the programming.

The Business

Ohio Distinctive consists of Ohio Distinctive Publishing, Ohio Distinctive Services, and until the end of 2020, Ohio Distinctive Software. Now that Ohio Distinctive Software is gone, we no longer sell the DVDs and CD-ROMs that we used to offer, but we still have books to keep your family pet healthy and happy. We also offer a couple of backyard bird books, a butterfly book, art books, and a variety of wildlife products (everything from calendars to mugs and T-shirts). Our backyard bird books and wildlife products feature photography you won’t find anywhere else.

Since 1987, the Ohio Distinctive businesses have served approximately 1.8 million customers, and we look forward to helping many more.

The People

At Ohio Distinctive, we care about each other, and we care about our customers. We recognize that you are the reason that we have our jobs, and we try never to forget that. We prosper because we’re hardworking, efficient, honest, and caring—and it shows. We have a lot of repeat customers, and without them, we would not be in business.

We’re proud of the fact that each employee at Ohio Distinctive makes a difference. We help each other on a daily basis, and as a result everyone is able to do more. Through the years, our workforce has been uncommonly diverse for a small company, with women and minorities in key positions because that’s just how it turned out when we hired and promoted the best person for each job. Ohio Distinctive is a place where people have grown personally and professionally, and we’re proud of the individuals who started at an entry level and worked their way up.

On behalf of myself and everyone else who has been a part of Ohio Distinctive, thank you for making our journey possible. We will always strive to prove Ohio Distinctive worthy of your support.
