About this project
Demeanor is an independent lifestyle brand based out of Washington D.C. Founded in 2010, we’ve sold hundreds of shirts and accessories at local events, pop up shops, and in locally owned boutiques in the US.
Our belief is quality over quantity, it’s very important to us that we create the best product at the lowest prices for our consumers. We design independently however we’ve been outsourcing to printers which has become a problem because of higher production costs, higher minimums and longer turnaround times, which has made it difficult to maintain our quality, affordable products, inventory and schedules.
With one silk screen printing machine, we can take 100% control of our brand from designing and printing, to packaging and shipping, ensuring that our deadlines are met and our products remain high quality and affordable. By printing ourselves we can expand our brand to include not only our full Men’s and Women’s collections, but also Kid’s, and other Lifestyle and Home products.
We’ll also be able to help other entrepreneurs and local clothing lines by making their production possible and affordable. However we can’t do any of this without you, we need your help to raise 50% down payment for the necessary printing equipment.
WITH YOUR CONTRIBUTION
We’ve been self financed since our start however we are in need of one printing machine to kickstart our local production, to prove it is possible. We have the sales, we just need the production:
- 1) machine will allow us to kickstart our summer 2012 production and expand our brand to be sold at accounts across the country as well as expand our Mens and Womens lines and launch our Kids collection.
- 2) machines will allow us to help other entrepreneurs and independent business owners with their production while also training the youth.
