They want to see that others support & follow you as well. This has been a great experience, we have learned so much and our customers are the best and extremely loyal.

We have always been a fan of a crisp white tee and decided to start by creates t-shirts where we kick knowledge. Before the shirts there has been a blog. What sets us apart from others in the t-shirt industry is that we’re just jot about shirts, it’s a part of us. We have Ed a background in education, we have always been the type of person where our friends & family would fall us for advice.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
We have Ed noticed TI trend shift from plain black and white tee to now all of the colors (bright colors). It is an industry that will continue to allow people to be creative. I see the trend staying constant for a while but there is always involvement so we interested to see where it goes and will be staying current on the new trends.
