NO BRANDING, NO LOGOS, JUST ART.

Natural Rejection (NTRJ) is a graphic apparel company that seeks to challenge the current state of the graphic apparel industry by abandoning the self-promoting ideals that so many modern brands live by and letting the ARTWORK speak for itself.

NTRJ will allow those who would wear the designs to decide which creations move forward and which ones are Naturally Rejected.  

Created from the ground up by artists, we believe that a brand can focus on the artwork and design rather than it's own brand identity. That a brand doesn't have to turn it's customers into walking advertisements or resort to contrived condescending imagery. That a brand can create 100% American made sweat-shop free products without sacrificing quality or care. A brand that is in essence… an Anti-Brand. And we hope that you will join us.

Thank you for your time, interest and support.

NTRJ won't turn you into an advertisement. We’re not trying to manipulate you with images that appeal to low-minded or degrading ideals. And rather than outsourcing to the lowest bidder and making products built on the broken backs of the less fortunate, every NTRJ product will be 100% Manufactured and printed in the USA on the broken backs of good hard working Americans!

YOU - THE CONTRIBUTOR WILL DECIDE WHAT MOVES FORWARD Based on your votes and requested rewards, Natural Rejection will become what you make of it. The pieces that are voted up will move forward and go into full production. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THIS SUCCEEDS?
Upon the successful completion of the campaign, NTRJ will (via a Kickstarter survey) calculate the voting totals and the leading four pieces will be produced and be subsequently available at www.NaturalRejection.com as our introductory line. Those who have selected apparel rewards will be the first to receive and own NTRJ. Three to six months after the finish date the NEXT SEASON of designs will be launched via Kickstarter. Any improvements or recommended revisions to the plan will be implemented making the next campaign that much better.

WHAT KIND OF APPAREL CAN I GET? 
All designs will be available in both Mens and Womens Tees. The mens tees will be printed on CANVAS 3001U Tees. All womens tees will be printed on BELLA 6004 U Tees. All tees will be MADE and PRINTED in the USA.

CAN I SUBMIT ART TO BE VOTED ON? Absolutely. Just go to www.NaturalRejection.com/submit and register. You will be contacted by NTRJ and we will schedule your artwork to be included in the next campaign.

WHAT IF THE TEE I SELECTED ISN’T A FINALIST? Fear not! You will receive your selected reward regardless of the results. The voting and selection process is designed to determine the larger consensus of what the NTRJ online store will move forward with. All designs that are selected as rewards will be produced and delivered regardless of popularity (We will obviously just produce less pieces). If you contributed, you deserve to get exactly what you wanted regardless of consensus. Hooray for hypocrisy!

WHAT WILL THE CONTRIBUTIONS BE SPENT ON?
Production of all rewards including taxes, Kickstarter fees and Shipping costs. Our estimates put that number at a minimum of $3442.80. Any extra will go into funding for E-commerce fees, trademarking, business licensing and general starting-up costs.

WILL THERE BE DIFFERENT PRODUCTS AVAILABLE?
For the first round, only mens and womens apparel. If all goes well we hope to expand into HOODIES, SKATE DECKS, YOUTH APPAREL and anything else suggested by our contributors.

WHO STARTED THIS?
Me, Nate Widick. I'm an art director, illustrator, web designer, graphic designer and proud father of 2 currently living in Las Vegas NV. I have over 16 years experience in the screen print apparel industry and have personally designed and produced branded merchandise for numerous national apparel brands as well as band flyers, off broadway play posters and album covers. I started Natural Rejection because after seeing countless apparel lines rise and fall over the years I felt it was time to throw myself under this unrelenting graphic-apparel-bus if only just to see what happens.

WHY SHOULD I HELP?
Without the support of like-minded individuals like you, an idea like this will never succeed. This campaign is about starting something that will be defined by it's resistance to the status quo and it's commitment to the ideals of it's contributing community. We can't do that alone. We're trying to build something that challenges what so many believe is insurmountable in the graphic tee industry. It's as simple as this: If you believe in the same ideals of Natural Rejection and want to be a part of it, now you have a means to.

Risks and challenges

Short of any unforeseen cataclysms, we have no doubts that all rewards will be shipped on time and in hands on schedule. In fact, should the goal be reached before the deadline, production can begin early. Price quotes, shipping costs, and production schedules have all been factored into the equation and we currently anticipate no problems.
