About

The idea behind our shirts is promote what freedom, liberty, and the American spirit actually mean. Each shirt has an inspiring quote from famous leaders who inspired people during their time. The shirts are designed to start conversations and educate people on the true meaning of what being American exemplifies. 

These shirts are not only very comfortable, they are also 100% made in the USA. Instead of choosing overseas shirts we really want our products to be 100% American. Doesn't printing the American flag on a product made in China just seem wrong?

The back of first shirt design features a quote by Abraham Lincoln. In this brilliant statement he reminds us of our moral responsibility to do what is right over what is desired. Good morals are the basis of any peaceful society and come from the individual, not the government. As Thomas Paine even said, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.”

“Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might and in that faith let us; to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.” - Abraham Lincoln
“Freedom is not the right to do what we want, but what we ought. Let us have faith that right makes might and in that faith let us; to the end, dare to do our duty as we understand it.” - Abraham Lincoln

The front of each shirt, as seen below, features our Sheepdog logo. The Sheepdog is based on a concept from Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, which in simplified terms states: Sheepdogs are there to protect everyone from the wolves of everyday life. The words “I Am The Sheepdog” let everyone know you stand up for your rights, as well as the rights of others.

Currently the only color of shirt we are offering is black, but If all of the stretch goals are reached other color options will be added. All of the stickers are also made in the USA. By keeping business in the USA utilizing small business resources we can all help keep jobs in America. 

Stretch Goal #1 - Ghandi Shirt (Unlocked @ 200 Shirts)

“Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.” - Ghandi
“Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.” - Ghandi

These words may seem odd coming from such a peaceful man, but even he realized the virtue of not only standing up for what you believe but also defending your own life. Love and understanding are the only ways to conquer hate, but you should also not let yourself become a victim. 

Stretch Goal #2 - Uncle Sam Shirt (Unlocked @ 300 Shirts)

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” - Thomas Jefferson
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.” - Thomas Jefferson

Not one of Thomas Jefferson’s more famous quotes, however it does paint a vivid picture. Taken from a letter written in 1787 discussing the new constitution, it clearly shows Jefferson’s stance on liberty. It serves as a reminder that our forefathers knew what was necessary to secure and maintain liberty. 

Timeline 

Shirts will take 2 weeks to print after funding is received. Orders will start being shipped as soon as they are received from our printer. Stickers will take 2 weeks or less to print as well. Items should start to ship by late February. Updates will be posted as things progress from printing to shipping and if there are any delays. 

How will the funds be used? 

The shirts of course! After orders are filled the first objective will be to get a retail website up and running. Afterwards, it will help fund other products we are working on.
