About

100% Made and Printed in USA.  

Hi Kickstarters!

Thank you for checking out Concrete Coast Clothing.  For years it has been my dream to create a unique clothing line that won't make people into a walking billboard.  Most mainstream brands are built around having huge logos, and their name, written all over the tee as a "design".  For Concrete Coast it's about design first.  We provide clothing for your lifestyle, not a label.

Since launching the company in 2012, I've released several different designs that follow this philosophy to a "tee."  In releasing these designs, I've discovered how much work it really takes to get things moving, and funding is a major factor in getting a new company up and running.  The work, however, is extremely rewarding.  Whenever someone compliments a design or buys a shirt I get a great sense of pride and happiness to see that other people like these designs as much as I do.  I always include a handwritten thank you note with every order to show my appreciation.

It's now time to release 5 new designs to further the Concrete Coast name and continue this dream.   That's why I've created this Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for releasing these new designs.  Several of these were built using my own photography and cut into different patterns.

 What's your background?

I'm a professional photographer and have had images published in many major international publications.  I grew up in Colorado and have been skating and enjoying the outdoors since a very young age.  One of my many dreams growing up was to start a skate/surf clothing brand that fits well, breathes, and holds up.  

Why USA?

I knew right away that I wanted everything to be US made.  The costs may be higher but the reward is far greater.  Concrete Coast Tees are printed in Denver, CO, and made by American Apparel in LA.  This helps save the environment by reducing transportation needs and keeps our economy running strong. 

What are the shirts made of and how are they printed?

Of all the tees I've ever worn, American Apparel have been the best fitting on the market.  Most Concrete Coast tees are printed on 100% cotton, though some are printed on a 50/50 blend of Polyester and Cotton.  Our tees are light weight and breath well on hot days. They are screen printed using water-based or plastisol inks depending on shirt color and material. 

Why Pledge?

Aside from the main benefit of receiving our brand new shirt designs and stickers at a significantly reduced price, your pledge will help me take Concrete Coast to the next level and grow this company into what I'm confident it can become.  Thank you in advance for your pledge and I can't wait to get printing!

Risks and challenges

For the most part there are very few risks and challenges. The shirts will take a few weeks after the process is completed to get tagged, printed, and ordered. American Apparel typically gets shirts out in only a few days.

I've contacted the screen printer to ensure everything will go smoothly and be ready as quickly as possible. Aside from that the biggest time factor would be my ability to package the shirts as quickly as possible to land them in your hands!
