Alright Kickstarter, this project is as simple as it gets. A single style tank top that I believe is a must have item heading into the summer season! I won't bore you with a long story about me, instead I will focus on what you came here to support. Besides the obvious always in style camo print, this tank top is reflective and is sure to turn heads. This is the perfect item for anyone who will be enjoying the weather this summer staying fit or just wants to look the role while out and about soaking up the rays or late nights downtown.

 Please pledge today and help my dream become a reality! 

Why YOU should back this project?

First and foremost, for this Kickstarter project tanks are strictly limited  to an initial run of 400 due to cost of materials, freight time to manufacturer, production time, shipping and my desire to ensure that those who originally support my project will have their tanks to enjoy this summer season. 

Tanks are as mentioned: Extremely Lightweight, Breathable, Water + Stain Repellent and Reflective. Available in four sizes they make the perfect item for yourself or a gift for a friend, family member or loved one. 

The biggest dynamic of this tank top is the reflectivity factor. During the day the tank appears to be a cool always in style digital camo tank top and will routinely flare up when the sun or light hits it at different angles. At night light will cause the tank top to reflect back extremely brightly as displayed in the photos adding a huge safety value for walkers, joggers, cyclist and all who want to be safely seen at night. Reflective items both on shirts and sneakers have always been widely stylish and popular, I believe this tank top combines the best of both worlds merging style and safety for those who are looking for that specific value. 

Fact of the matter is every year we all buy tank tops for summer, why not purchase a unique reflective tank top that is not available for purchase anywhere else in the world. I personally don't know of anyone who would not love a Reflective Digital Camo Tank Top. Tanks can both be worn alone or layered with a t-shirt underneath. 

Made in the USA

All Reflective Digital Camo Tank Tops are 100% made in the United States of America! Quality stitched and packaged totally in San Francisco California this project is helping to support the U.S Economy while saying NO to unethical and often underage harsh sweat shop conditions found with manufacturing abroad. The biggest obstacle with production in the US are financial. Costs to produce at home are without question more expensive at minimum double if not triple or more what it would cost to produce outside of the country. However, I believe the phrase "Made in America" still means something and is worth the added expense. 

Where YOU come in?

This is my very first large scale project I have ever attempted. I have spent countless years imagining doing something like this and to be able to finally see it come to life is an amazing feeling. The past few months, weeks and days I've been hunched over my laptop refining and tweaking my first product and getting this Kickstarter project up and running. All that is left is the first production run. 

Costs to produce a single garment include the sample production, consultations, material sourcing, cutting and freight, minimum order runs and packaging and shipping. The funds raised will cover the cost of each step in the process of sewn product manufacturing. If this project is successfully funded I will be able to continue pursuing my passion in designing and creating unique and new projects such as this one. Please help me make my vision a reality by pledging today!

Rewards

All rewards are clearly detailed to the best of my ability running down the right side of your screen. At the end of the pledge period if this project is successful Kickstarter will send out a form allowing you to specify exact sizes. All shipping within the United States has been included in each pledge level for simplicity. For supporters outside of the United States please add $10 to your pledge to cover International Shipping.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge this project will face are any production delays. However due to production being right here in the USA there is a much smaller chance for any major delays that would otherwise result from manufacturing outside of the states. Manufacturing is done by a private label production facility in California with over 30 years of experience in the field of bringing sewn product concepts to life. Of all of the production companies I personally reviewed carefully I simply felt a connection to the one chosen to be able to get the job done and bring my first officially manufactured product and dreams to reality.

Please rest assured multiple samples have been manufactured successfully. The next step is simply a first production run with the support of you; the backers of this project.

Another possible challenge I will face will be the logistics of packaging and shipping each tank top myself to all backers. I do not see this being any major issue though as a "retired" sneaker customizer I created, packaged and shipped over 150 pairs of custom sneakers within the United States and to countries such as Denmark, Japan and Canada with no issues at all. Although with your support I will likely be packaging and shipping many more packages then I ever have in the past, I am comfortable I can handle getting all packages labeled and shipped out in a timely manner.
