Two years ago I took on this project this project to get this awesome hoodie made.
Through a community effort, we came up with a sweet design and made the dream, a reality. Backed by an awesome community, I blew through 400 hoodies in just a few hours, orders literally came in faster than the webstore could process them! (what a mess that was eh?) From the beginning I had intentions to make a follow up order, but never quite found the time, life got busy and stayed busy! I would have a few hours here or there and made a little progress when I could, but never enough to give it another solid go.
While my life hasn't slowed down, I have made the decision and dedicated time to see this through fully! Over the past two years I've received hundreds and hundreds of emails with YOUR support to see more of these made, and I've been saving each and every one of them!
Slim fit, cotton poly blend, custom designed and custom manufactured with high quality materials and construction, fancy sublimated artwork, super nice, super comfy, super limited edition, super super.
With successful funding we will have enough to place an order for 400 hoodies.
So this is it people of the internet. This is your chance! With your pledge we are that much closer to making more of these a reality! This new batch will be the same high quality, premium hoodie that was made before, but with enough to go around!

Risks and challenges
...are being manufactured by the same tried and true company that I used last time. This isn't some small mom and pop operation, they're an international leader in clothing manufacturing and have been in business for over 25 years.
... for rewards will be placed as soon as we're funded, from there it's an expected 100 day lead time. Once they're delivered to me, the goal is to process and ship at least 150 orders a week, until they're are filled.
The Vinyl stickers...
...are being manufactured locally, and the plan is that they will be shipped out as they're available, 100 orders every week. Lead time on those is only a few days for every order I put in, so those will be shipped much sooner than the hoodies will be available.
...I've been self employed in various endeavors since 2008. My main thing has always been clothing retail. I ran a high volume eBay store, and was a powerseller for years on end.
...All US bound Hoodie orders will be mailed will be done via USPS flat rate shipping, other rewards via First class, and will include delivery confirmation and basic tracking will be available.
International shipping is a bit of a crap shoot, last time I think only two orders were lost/stolen/disappeared, by and large it worked out well, it really is a buyer be warned though, as it's not really feasible to insure and get tracking on every package that is shipped. However, it will be available as an additional cost for those interested.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
