Innovative Designs, Inc. Adds Tom Nelson, "The American Archer" to Its Pro Staff

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 -- Innovative Designs, Inc. (OTC BB: IVDN), "i.d.i. gear," is proud to announce the addition of Tom Nelson, "The American Archer" to its pro staff. Mr. Nelson is highly regarded as one of the top archers in the industry. In addition to being seen regularly on his T.V. show, "The American Archer," which airs on The Outdoor Channel, he is recognized as one of the top outdoor writers in the industry.

Mr. Nelson commented on the i.d.i. gear hunting line featuring INSULTEX™; "I just returned from hunts in Michigan, Saskatchewan, Montana and Wyoming where your i.d.i. Hunting Apparel kept me warm and dry under some blustery weather conditions to say the least. While my cameraman and fellow hunters were getting frozen out, I remained warm and comfortable even with the mercury hovering around zero and below. I own it all when it comes to warm and insulated hunting gear but your lightweight clothing makes my other clothing obsolete. Factor in the lightness of your garments and you have the finest hunting apparel available to sportsmen today."

Joseph Riccelli, President and CEO, commented; "Innovative Designs is pleased to add someone of Mr. Nelson's stature to our pro staff. Mr. Nelson is recognized as one of the top archers in the world. To have his professional endorsement based on his use of our products is a feather in our cap. Going forward we will employ Tom in a variety of ways to market our hunting line."
