What Is "Sprai Apparel?"

Sprai Apparel is a lifestyle based off of the Colorado front range ideals. It started with you in mind when we were struck with one form of inspiration; street art. Our designs slowly evolved from those endless supplies of color, shapes and metaphors until we were certain that each piece was truly original and held it's own value. Similar to the signatures that artists leave on buildings, bridges and trains, we strive to have our own form of recognition. Sprai Apparel is about the ability to impress an entire room simply by walking through the door. We grew products based around the wearer of each garment, because the truest thing beyond bare skin is the clothing that covers it.

Why Kickstarter? 

When Sprai Apparel was started, I was making t-shirts in my parents basement and sold them out of my freshman dorm room the following months. As I moved into my own place, I started creating an inventory in a makeshift office, joined up with some friends and have been running Sprai from there ever since. Now it's time for us to take Sprai Apparel to the next level and because we are on a college budget, we need your help!

We are turning to Kickstarter to help launch our 2014 Line which will introduce:

  • 5 New Shirt designs (4 T-Shirts, 1 Collared Shirt)

  • 2 New Sweatshirt Designs (One Hoodie, One Off-The-Shoulder Sweatshirt)

  • 1 New Zip-up Design

  • 3 New Snapback Hats


The money raised will go towards:

  • Cost Of Apparel

  • Cost Of Printing (Set-up fees, printing, labor, etc.)

  • Cost Of Shipping-

  • Amazon Payments 5% fee and Kickstarter 5% fee

  • Having A Small Inventory That Will Help Us Push Into Local Stores

  • Any money above our goal that is raised will go towards renting an office space/warehouse to move our operations as well as marketing and promotions!

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk after our project is successfully funded is getting our printers to complete production on time. We have had problems with this in the past but we believe that we found a company that is dedicated to helping us with our vision. If this situation were to arise, we would have back up options of companies we have used in the past and production would just take a little longer than expected.

Our biggest challenge is going to be getting everything ready to be shipped if we exceed our expectations. Since there are only 3 of us, it will take a lot of dedicated time if our campaign more than doubles our production expectations. If this does happen, we are ready to put in the time and we will have to notify backers that the shipping may be delayed by a week or two, but we will get it done and we will focus on doing it right the first time so everyone receives the quality products they pledged for.
